Kings Island announces important updates regarding the rest of the 2020 Season. Learn More.
There’s a big beautiful Dodgem sign above the entrance to the classic amusement park ride in Coney Mall. The newly redesigned sign was installed on Thursday at King Island.
In addition to the new sign, the exterior of the Dodgem has received a fresh coat of paint.
One of the Kings Island’s most popular family rides, the Dodgem opened with the park in 1972. The Dodgem was refurbished in 1986, making it a bigger and better version of the original which gave its first rides in 1924 at Cincinnati’s old Coney Island. After operating there for 48 seasons, it was among the rides transported in the fall of 1971 to Kings Island.
Forty fiberglass bumper cars, manufactured by the Majestic Rides Company, Inc. of New Waterford, Ohio, provide fun for park guests as they try to avoid bumping into each other. Getting behind the wheel of one of the cars is a rite of passage. No visit to Kings Island is complete for family or friends without riding the Dodgem.
Kings Island will open for the 2020 season in July with new health and safety protocol in place. The amusement park will open to season pass-holders starting July 2 through July 11. Kings Island will be open to daily ticket-holders starting Sunday, July 12.
