Kings Island has never been just about roller coasters and rides for me. While I most enjoy those things, having a theater background, I have always enjoyed the different shows at the park. Over the past four years, my favorite shows that the park has hosted have been the Cirque shows in the Kings Island Theater.
I recently had the chance to catch Gravity produced by Les Productions Haut-Vol based out of Quebec, Canada. Based off the former productions at Kings Island, I knew that I would be in for a treat.
The doors opened 15 minutes before show time and I walked into the Kings Island Theater to notice a space ship on the stage. A few minutes before the show started an audio pre-show started that you definitely need to pay attention to, not only does it set the stage for what’s about to happen, it adds some humor to it. My friends and I were even greeted by a member of the show as part of the pre-show.
Once the show started, I was just in awe. The cast brings some great humor from the very beginning. Myself alongside the other audience members were treated to various stunts in the show including bike tricks, aerial stunts, and even more stunts. Some of the stunts would be considered dangerous if you or I attempted them. While the stunts could be dangerous to the cast members, myself alongside the other audience members were blown away how the cast accomplished the different stunts.
What blew me completely away about this show was that the set, costumes and characters really make you believe you are on Planet 6328. It may be the theater background in me, but I noticed the details on the costumes as well as the make up for each character. Those details help the audience understand the story being told by Gravity. The sheer talent of the actors, plus their costumes and makeup, as well as the set really make Gravity a great show. One of my favorite aspects of the show is that the lights go down for a couple of acts, either in a black light setting or almost complete darkness. These acts, utilize neon lighting of objects or LED color changing objects. They are just another aspect of why the audiences love this show.
Gravity is a show that will blow your mind. You could take my word for it, but I truly believe you should see Gravity for yourself.
To see Gravity, you need to show up to the Kings Island Theater 15 minutes before show time. Gravity is presented on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday at 3:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m. with a final show at 7:00 p.m. If you are visiting on a Saturday, you can see Gravity at 1:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m,, 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. There are no performances of Gravity on Wednesdays. The show is currently running now through August 19. Gravity is suitable for all ages.
