Opening Day at Kings Island 2020 - postponed

A Message from Richard Zimmerman, Chief Executive Officer, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company

March 20, 2020 Update

At Cedar Fair, the safety and well-being of our Guests and Associates are always our top priorities.   

We have been continuously monitoring and following regional and national health directives related to COVID-19 and we want to keep you informed on how these events will impact our park schedule. Currently, it is our hope to open Kings Island mid-May or as soon thereafter as possible. We believe this decision is in the best interest of our associates, our guests, and our community.

We will work with Guests who have prepaid tickets during the time period of our park closure. You may contact us at

For 2020 Season Passholders, we will be adding days to the park’s operating calendar to accommodate for the days the park is temporarily closed (against original 2020 operating calendar). Additionally, 2020 Season Passholders will enjoy added-value benefits to be announced at time of park opening.

We appreciate the support and cooperation of our Guests and Associates during this ever-evolving situation. Your loyalty to our park is invaluable. We look forward to seeing you soon.
