They made the magic and they came back!
More than 250 people who had been involved in Kings Island’s entertainment department over the past 47 years gathered August 10 at the park for the first-ever entertainment reunion, which included singers, dancers, musicians, costumers, set designers, lighting technicians, stage managers, choreographers, atmosphere performers, actors and more.
While Facebook has enabled everyone to reconnect and keep in touch since their Kings Island days, the reunion marked the first time that many had seen each other in some 20, 30, 40-plus years. It was great to see everyone reconnect (including many that I had seen perform at the park), share hugs and kisses, rekindle memories and make new ones during this unforgettable day.
“Kings Island for many of us, was a starting point for our careers,” said Rob Pottorf, who performed as a singer in live shows at Kings Island from 1980 to 1985 and is now a composer for film and television music. “It gave us a chance to basically learn the art of performing and hone our craft four or five times a day. Even though my career path wasn’t ultimately the stage, what I learned from time at Kings Island still influences my artistic choices to this day.”

Pottorf, along with Jeffrey Roscoe and Amy Griffin, spent countless hours over the past year organizing the Kings Entertainment Reunion. It was all worth it.
