Kings Island announces important updates regarding the rest of the 2020 Season. Learn More.
Kings Island’s new Orion roller coaster debuts to the public when the park opens for the 2020 season on April 11, but those willing to help families with sick kids could get on earlier.
Kings Island will be hosting an Orion First Riders Auction event for those wanting to ride before anyone else on April 9 to benefit A Kid Again, a nonprofit organization which exists to foster hope, happiness and healing for families raising kids with life-threatening illnesses through fun-filled group activities and events. A Kid Again families are invited to participate in these adventures from the age of diagnosis until the child reaches age 20 through funds raised from events such as this.
To participate, individuals must raise a minimum of $150 for A Kid Again. Participants will get a first rider t-shirt, food, a certificate of participation and unlimited rides on Orion from 6-9 p.m. Plaques will be awarded to the top five fundraisers.
Upon creating your fundraising page, be sure to share the link with your friends on Facebook and followers on Twitter to let them know you are participating in this event and ask for their help in reaching your fundraising goal. Think about it this way: If 30 of your friends and co-workers were to each donate just $5, you will have met the minimum required to participate.
Fundraising ends April 3 at midnight.
Orion will be one of only seven giga coasters in the world, a class of roller coasters having a height or drop of 300-399 feet. Riders will plummet down an exhilarating 300-foot first drop at an 85-degree angle before sending them on a high-speed journey over seven more hills and 5,321 feet of track at speeds up to 91 mph on the tallest and fastest steel roller coaster at Kings Island.
