City council rejects Kings Island admission tax
Written by Robert Niles
The Mason, Ohio city council last night finally voted on that proposed ticket and parking tax for Kings Island, rejecting the proposal.Tweet
The tax would have raised about $2.4 million (a number I figured out here) by adding 3 percent to the cost of tickets and passes and 5 percent to the parking fee.
That's not much per ticket - it would have worked out to about a buck extra per ticket I bought last year, plus an extra 50 cents or so on the parking. And the councilman who proposed the tax increase said it would have gone toward improving roads the highway interchange and access road to the park. But Kings Island launched a PR blitz against the tax, e-mailing passholders to turn out in opposition.
Looks like it worked.
