The underworld has emerged

Throughout the ages, legends have been told of dark, dastardly creatures roaming the depths of the underworld -- sporting countless, gripping tentacles and harboring even more evil intentions. But they’ve never made it to land. Until now. Kings Island’s Monster ride envelops guests in pods of fear and tosses them about on a wild, wicked course. Six tentacles each contain four pods of hapless riders that spin independently, spin together and spin along the base of the Monster -- all while tilting sideways and jostling its victims up and down. You might even catch a bit of weightlessness along the way, adding to the feeling of utter helplessness. The speed of this ride may seem a bit slow when you witness it from the ground, but don’t let that fool you; once you experience this beast, you’ll see that it’s packed with thrills and chills that will keep you coming back for more.

Rider Safety Information

Min Height Accompanied
Min Height Alone
  • A circular ride with pods that spin on arms that move in a clockwise motion while also moving up and down.
  • Guests must be 46” to ride alone or accompanied by a supervising companion. No hand-held infants.
  • Maximum weight – 400 lb. per car
  • A shared lap bar secures each rider across the thighs and pelvis.
  • Due to the nature of the restraint, this ride may not accommodate guests of a larger size.
  • Guests must have a minimum of two functioning extremities; one functioning arm and one functioning leg. Two functioning arms are sufficient instead of one functioning arm and one functioning leg if the guest has a normal center of gravity and lower extremities are sufficiently strong to support weight against the restraint under the dynamic conditions of the ride. Amputations must be at the knee or below.
