Do you really need a reason to buy or renew a Kings Island Gold Season Pass? Listen, there’s literally 100 reasons to get a Gold Season Pass but I’ve narrowed the list down to 10.

No. 10: Unlimited visits to Kings Island in 2019

Having a Gold Season Pass means unlimited visits every public operating day. Each event brings with it new entertainment, new decorations and new foods to try! You can go as often as you want, whenever you want, with a Gold Season Pass.

No. 9: Free parking!

Hold onto your cash and zoom past the toll booths by presenting your Gold Season Pass any time you visit Kings Island during the 2019 season.

No. 8: Early ride time

Gold Season Passholders can use their pass to enjoy early rides on select attractions 30 minutes before the park opens every public operating day through October except for Frida nights during Halloween Haunt.

No. 7: The region’s premier water park

With a Gold Season Pass, you’ll enjoy unlimited visits to Soak City Water Park where you can splish, splash and laugh on more than 50 water activities! Soak City is the perfect place to beat the heat this summer. Plus, your Gold Season Pass will also get you early entry into Soak City and time to experience Tropical Plunge and Tidal Wave Bay 30 minutes before the water park opens each day.

No. 6: Bring-a-Friend Days

Enjoy all of the fun and thrills with friends this summer! Simply present your Gold Season Pass at any ticket window to purchase up to four discounted tickets on select dates. Or save time and by online in advance!

No. 5: Access to special discounts on food and merchandise

With a Kings Island Gold Season Pass, you get discounts on select food and merchandise locations throughout the park.

No. 4: Kings Island is home to the world’s best kids’ area

Voted “Best Kids’ Area in the World” 18 consecutive years by Amusement Today, Planet Snoopy features an elaborate collection of PEANUTS-themed family rides and attractions, including kiddie rides specifically designed for children. For families that function best first thing in the morning, you can enjoy select attractions in Planet Snoopy 30 minutes before the park opens every public operating day with a Gold Season Pass.

No. 3: Seasonal events

Enjoy unlimited visits to seasonal events including Grand Carnivale, an all-new international festival and parade June 15 through July 7, and all the way through Halloween Haunt, The Great Pumpkin Fest and WinterFest with a Gold Season Pass.

No. 2: Value

Simply put, there’s no better entertainment value around than a Gold Season Pass. It pays for itself in just two visits. Kings Island is fun for the whole family, with family rides and attractions like the Grand Carousel, Scrambler, Dodgem, Shake, Rattle & Roll, Congo Falls, and debuting this year, the Kings Mills Antique Autos. For thrill-seekers, there’s The Beast, Banshee, Diamondback and Mystic Timbers roller coasters. All for as low as three easy payments of $32 after an initial payment of $40.

And No. 1: Gold goes away July 7

You don’t want to miss out on anything going on at Kings Island throughout the year but hurry, because Gold goes away July 7.

Go to for more information and buy a Gold Season Pass today, before it's too late!
