Water and water-related activities have always been popular attractions for guests visiting Kings Island. Congo Falls is no exception. The ride has been making a splash with park visitors for 30 years! Located in the Action Zone area of Kings Island, this cool, wet and wild attraction is a great family ride in a beautiful setting. Huge boats – each nearly 16 feet long and carrying up to 20 passengers – climb steadily above tree top level and then glide along an 8-15 foot trough of water, which ends in a magnificent 50-foot waterfall drop. The splashdown in the lake below creates a gigantic tidal wave that soaks not only the passengers but also those standing in selected areas watching the ride on the exit and observation deck. Other features along the Congo Falls waterway include a geyser pool.
GUEST ADVISORY: Congo Falls is closed for the season.
