Independence Day is two weeks away and there's no better place to celebrate the red, white and blue this Fourth of July than Kings Island!

The park will light up the sky with one of the largest and most impressive Independence Day fireworks displays in the region which will include close-proximity fireworks along International Street and be 20 minutes in length.

The celebration doesn't stop after the fireworks. The park will remain open until midnight giving you two additional hours to enjoy night rides on some of your favorite attractions. 

In addition to the Fireworks Spectacular, guests can experience Grand Carnivale, an all-new international festival and parade. Kings Island will also pay tribute to members of the Military by offering free admission on Military Appreciation Days, July 3-5.

Discover the best ticket packages and savings for your Fourth of July visit to Kings Island online.
