Progress being made in opening Kings Island's 'WindSeeker'

MASON, OH (FOX19) - Kings Island officials said Monday that they are getting closer to opening the park's newest ride, WindSeeker.

"Every day, we're making progress and hope to have it open soon," said Kings Island spokesman Don Helbig.

Helbig said high winds and rain have delayed the ride's opening. He said the ride is in the initial phase of testing, and as soon as the testing and commissioning are finished, the ride will open. He would not give a timetable on when that would happen.

"As soon as we get it open, I think everyone will be excited to get on WindSeeker," said Helbig.

In the meantime, you can check out the WindSeeker camera on the FOX19 Skycam network. Kings Island is now open daily.
