It’s not the tallest or fastest ride at Kings Island, but it is one of the most recognized rides in the park and a staple attraction.
The Scrambler is celebrating its 50th season this year and has delighted generations of people since it made its debut in 1969 at Cincinnati’s Coney Island, and continues to put smiles on faces of guests old and young, whether they are experiencing it for the first time or reliving childhood memories.
Manufactured by the Eli Bridge Company of Jacksonville, IL, the Scrambler is one of 11 rides that remain in operation that opened with Kings Island in 1972.
The classic midway attraction features cars that are mounted on counter-rotating arms, which produces strong accelerations and side-to-side movement, changing force and direction rapidly during the one-minute, 45-second ride length.
The Scrambler has given more than 24 million rides since its debut at Kings Island. Its record year was 1972, when 907,932 rides were given.
