Kings Island is showing their love to members of the community who spend their lives keeping us safe, healthy and educated by offering free admission to both the theme park and Soak City Water Park during select weekends in August. 

Teachers, first responders and health care providers will be able to visit the park and have the option to purchase discounted tickets for friends and family during Community Appreciation Days.

Below are the dedicated weekends:

Aug. 2-4: Teachers Appreciation Weekend — Kings Island kicks off the new school year with free admission for teachers. Educators, faculty and staff are welcome to participate but must have a valid school ID or teaching license with a photo ID. 

Aug. 9-11: First Responders Days — Fire, police and safety personnel are recognized during this weekend and must present a valid ID in order to enter for free. Eligible members include EMTs, firefighters, uniformed police officers, state troopers, border patrol agents, investigators, evidence technicians, firearms examiners, 911 dispatchers, correction officers, hand writing examiners, intelligence analysts and investigative assistants.

Kings Island is the largest amusement park and waterpark in the Midwest. There are thrill rides — like Mystic Timbers with 16 airtime moments and a mystery shed ending; the Invertigo face-to-face inverted coaster; and the Beast, the world’s longest wooden roller coaster — family rides (like a one-third scale replica of the Eiffel Tower), daily live shows, Soak City Waterpark, the world’s largest animatronic dinosaur park and lots of traditional carnival games.
