MASON, Ohio — Kings Island guests will have to make a reservation when the park opens next month.
In addition, everyone at the park is required to wear a mask. The changes are among several regulations in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kings Island will open to season pass holders on July 2 and will open to the general public on July 12.
New protocols at the park include:
- A new online reservation system; each guest is required to have a reservation prior to their visit to enable capacity management
- A requirement to complete a pre-visit health screening declaration 24 hours prior to admission
- A touchless temperature screening prior to entering the facility for both guests and associates
- Requirements for all guests, associates and vendors to wear masks as directed by the protocols
- Social distancing markers throughout the park, including ride queue lines
- Limited guest/associate contact
- Enhanced cleaning procedures, including additional deep cleaning and sanitization of restrooms, dining facilities and other busy areas
- Additional hand sanitization stations
- Capacity management throughout the park
The park’s new health and safety protocols align with CDC recommendations, general manager Mike Koontz said in a news release.
“We are ready to welcome our guests back to Kings Island for some long-overdue fun. The safety of our guests and associates has always been and will always be our top priority,” Koontz said.
