Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

p. 792 - Camp Cedar campground to open in 2021!

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I am on my first solo mini coaster tour of Ohio in May...Kings Island and Cedar Point, and I have just realised that there is an ACE event on at Kings Island the same day I am there (Sunday May 18).... just wonder if anyone has an guess of how many people this would add to the park, and maybe should I revisit my schedule if the numbers (or people) will be insane?

 

(and any tips on the best route from Kings Island to Cedar Point)..... I have used google maps, but would love some local knowledge...

 

thinking about either a side trip to the ohio state prison.... or neil armstrong musuem (I realise I can only do one)....

Honestly, there really is no easy way to get from KI to CP, you can take 75 north to Toledo-area, then cut east and find Route 2 somewhere.....or you can take 71 to Cleveland area, to turnpike to Sandusky area. You could stop at a prison, but would be hard to tour it or anything because of regulations. Neil Armstrong museum is decent, but if you want something cool, take 75 north to Dayton and go to the Air Force Museum, very cool history there. Then you can go up 75 and head to CP.

71 north to the Columbus outer-belt 270 west to 23 north to 98 (waldo exit). You will take 98 into Bucyrus where you will essentially keep going North but you want to make sure you take route 4 north. Take this into Sandusky and follow the Cedar Point signs.

Have Fun!

I hear a lot of people commenting on the "smaller" loop. Does anyone know if this is fact? Looking at the pictures, they both look relatively similar in size. Is one loop in fact larger than the other?

 

Can someone in tha know actually comment on this?

This was my thought exactly. The max speed isn't even achieved until later in the ride. I'd think it would be the same size, if not bigger than the first.

Are you feeling okay? You missed the easiest "that's what she said" joke in weeks. You're slipping...

I take 75 to us 6 to get to cedar point from my house. I've never done the 71 route. A fairly easy option from kings island would be south 71 to 275. 275 to 75 then get off on us 6 and follow it to the park

If your looking for a cool museum, I would go to the Air Force museum at Wright Pat in Dayton over going to the Neil Armstrong museum. Also from Ki running up 71 to Columbus is the best route to Cp. There are several routes north of Columbus. I usually use rt 13 in Mansfield and connect with Rt 250. There might be better but I don't think going through Toledo or Cleveland are the best way.

I second this. The museum is huge and they have a lot of really cool stuff in there. Last time I was there they had an SR-71 Blackbird, a B2 Stealth bomber and the Bockscar (the plane that essentially ended World War II). I believe all of those are permanent exhibits in Dayton but you may want to double check that.

 

It's a free museum but if you're a history buff you can easily spend a full day there. That place is top notch.

Yeah, that's why I suggested it in my response. They still have the sr-71, B-2 and Bockscar. They also have an F-117, a-10, a lot of the F- jet series, a MiG, and the new Space Shuttle stuff should be open by then. If you're planning to spend a few hours there, get their early and register for the Presidential and Exhibition gallery tour. You can walk through the actual plane that took JFK to Dallas, brought his body back home and LBJ was sworn in on. There is also a lot of bombs, rockets, engines and tons of other cool stuff to see there.

Thanks for all the input, it looks like the 75 is the way to go, and it gives me options of the Airforce Museum and or Neil Armstrong on the way... (it just depends what time I leave and how tired I am). I have also decided that if I am still keen for the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield (the shawshank prison) , which closed in 1990, its only an hour from Cedar point, so I can take a break there if I need. (on a different day!!)...

 

As the time gets closer, I am sure I will have more questions, thanks for all your help

^If you're considering the Reformatory, you might as well stop at the Carousel in downtown Mansfield as well. I don't know if Carousel Works does tours of their factory, but if they do that's something else to look into if that sort of thing interests you. (While I'm on carousels, downtown Sandusky also has a nice Merry-go-Round Museum) And Mansfield has easy access to I-71, so it would be relatively easy for you to drive from CP to Mansfield, and then take I-71 from Mansfield to Kings Island. That's a much more direct route and it would would be more convenient than taking I-80 from Sandusky to Toledo and then taking I-75 to Cincinnati/KI.
