DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Kings Island is adding two rides to the park when it opens April 18.

The first of the new family rides next to each other at Planet Snoopy is Woodstock Gliders, a classic flying scooters ride form Larson International.

The ride features eight two person planes that glide 28 feet above the ground. As the plane rotates, they will fan out over a large area. Each plane has a stationary rear wing and a movable front wing..which lets the guests control the flight.

The ride is similar to the Flying Eagles one that was popular years ago.

The other new ride is Snoopy's Space Buggies from Zamperla. The attraction is designed for kids of all ages to enjoy with their parents.

Six, four-seat vehicles will bounce up and down while rotating in a circle.

In other changes at the park, Starbucks will be relocated from the front gate area and expanded.

The improvements will make it one of the largest Starbucks stores in the Midwest.

International street also is being revamped, and a yogurt store is being added.
