(Kings Island, Mason) Kings Island was awesome. We took my 9 year old son, 12 year old daughter and niece and nephew. They had a good time; we were there from Monday evening to Thursday afternoon. We didn’t even want to leave after 4 days! The lines weren’t long and all the rides were working while we were there. I would definitely recommend this to others.Debra J (TripAdvisor)
