MASON, OH (FOX19) - Kings Island is closed for the season, and that means construction starts Monday on the new Soak City.

Soak City is a $10 million dollar expansion of Kings Island's current water park, nearly doubling in size to 33 acres. The new water park will incorporate many of Kings Island's current popular and innovative water attractions along with the addition of new attractions and elements, including a new wave pool and new action river.

Soak City is expected to be ready for opening day 2012. It will be included in general park admission.
