Over the next two weekends, first responders and healthcare professionals have days they can go to Kings Island without having to purchase an admission ticket to celebrate the park’s “Community Appreciation Days” this month.

First Responders Days

Kings Island is honoring those who protect our community August 9-11 by offering free admission to all active fire, police and safety personnel. 

A valid fire and police photo ID must be presented at Kings Island to take advantage of the public safety appreciation offer. Fire and police badges and identification cards are accepted only if accompanied by a photo ID. As all ID must reference specific fire or police duty, government-only issued IDs will not be accepted. 

Fire, police and safety personnel who quality for free admission include firefighters, EMTs, uniformed police officers, state troopers, border patrol agents, investigators, evidence technicians, firearms examiners, crime lab technicians, 911 dispatchers, correction officers, hand writing examiners, intelligence analysts and investigative assistants. 

Healthcare Professionals Days

Kings Island is honoring those who work in the healthcare industry by offering free admission to healthcare professionals August 16-18.

Any guest who presents a valid medical I.D. card, medical license or certificate in conjunction with a state-issued photo I.D. will qualify for free admission during Healthcare Appreciation Days.

Family and friends of first responders and healthcare professionals can purchase tickets online at the lowest price of the season.

Community Appreciation Days kicked off this month with Teacher Appreciation Weekend August 2-4.
