Kings Island opens to everyone this Friday, July 10: Top tips for your upcoming visit

The day is finally here! If you’re not a season passholder (why aren’t you? Get yours here!) then the park opens to you this Friday, July 10. Before you head to the park, we wanted to give  you some of our top park visiting tips to help make your day amazing. 

Before you arrive

Tip: Bring a Spare Face Covering. A face covering is required by everyone over two years old that visits Kings Island. But, we recommend packing more than one, in case your face covering gets dirty, or you lose it. We also have plenty of face coverings available for purchase at the park.

Tip: The Kings Island Mobile App is a Must

All the information you need to know about Kings Island is right at your fingertips when you download the mobile app. Check out the interactive park map, ride wait times, order food, access your digital wallet and more. Wi-Fi access is free during your visit to Kings Island.

Tip: Know Before You Go

Be sure to check out our Welcoming You Back section of the Kings Island Website. These pages will provide you with the essential information for what do before you arrive at Kings Island, what you’ll see and experience when you arrive, and how to make the most of your visit- safely- while you’re here.

During Your Visit

Tip: Get an Orion Access Pass

Be sure to report to Orion when you arrive at the park to get your Orion Access Pass. This pass will assign you a one-hour window to ride Orion. Then enjoy the rest of your day at Kings Island, and come back to the ride at your assigned ride time. Access Passes are limited, and this program may change without notice.

Tip: Take a break from face coverings

While Kings Island requires face coverings to be worn through your visit, there are a few places where you can remove them and take a break. 

  • RelaxZones are larger areas inside the park where a face covering can be removed as long as social distancing guidelines are being met.
  • Water Rides. If you haven’t been on White Water Canyon, Congo Falls or Race for Your Life Charlie Brown! lately, riding these rides provide a brief respite from wearing your face covering.
  • A face covering is not required when you are actively eating and drinking.
