How to enjoy all of Kings Island’s thrill rides when visiting the park with young children

If you’re visiting Kings Island with a child who is too short or too scared to ride roller coasters like The Beast, Banshee and Diamondback, the Parent Swap Program makes it easy for you to still enjoy all of the park’s major thrill rides.

Here’s how it works: One parent or guardian waits in line to ride a thrill ride or other height restricted attraction. After riding, they give their Parent Swap pass to the ride operator and the other parent or guardian, who has been taking care of the little ones, can walk up the exit or alternate access to get right on the ride. That’s all there is to it.

To participate in the Parent Swap program, parents need to obtain a slip to authorize them for the program at the Help Center located near the Front Gate.

Try it out and let us know how it worked for you.
