Viking Fury
Adventure awaits you on this mighty ship

Set sail on this medieval Viking ship for an exciting adventure as you fly to an incredible 80 feet arc high above the waters below. You’ll experience weightlessness and rapidly changing forces and directions aboard this ship. The Viking Fury opened in 1982 at Kings Island, it was the largest ride of its type in the world and since been a favorite for both families and thrill-seekers. In fact, only nine attractions in operation today at the park have given more rides than the Viking Fury in Kings Island’s history: The Racer, K.I. & Miami Valley Railroad, The Beast, Woodstock Express, Race for Your Life Charlie Brown, Eiffel Tower, Adventure Express and Dodgem. Because of its location, surrounded by water with the Eiffel Tower as a backdrop, the Viking Fury is also one of the most photographed attractions at Kings Island.
