Kings Island will open first to those with season passes July 2 through July 11. There will be limited capacity and hours, park officials say.
Cedar Point season pass holders can enter the park July 9 with daily ticket holders allowed to enter Sunday, July 12.
Both parks will have coronavirus precautions and restrictions such as online reservations, completion of a “pre-visit health screening declaration 24 hours prior to admission” and touchless temperature checks.
All visitors and employees must wear masks and observe social distancing.
“We are ready to welcome our guests back to Kings Island for some long-overdue fun,” said Mike Koontz, the general manager of Kings Island. “The park’s new health and safety protocols align with CDC recommendations, and have been shaped by information from company and industry health and safety experts, along with our state and local government officials.”
An opening date for Soak City water park is to be determined.
New protocols include some of the following:
- 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
