Kings Island opens Saturday

WARREN COUNTY, OH (F0X19) - Kings Island Theme Park opens at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 30th. The park is in its 40th season.

On the eve of opening day, crews were busy getting games ready, loading up vendor stands and even putting some fresh paint on several buildings.

"It's fun to come as a family and to see all the shows," said Jenny Weaver, mother.

This year Kings Island has three new shows and the thrilling new ride "Windseeker." But the ride won't be ready for opening day.

"We just kind of ran out of time with all the inclement weather we have had this month, we haven't had the chance to get the commissioning and the testing done on the ride," said Don Helbig, company spokesperson. "But once that is completed the ride will be open and that will be soon."
