Kings Island Now Offering VIP Package

Kings Island: Front of line privelages, meal plans, and more! Is this a Cedar Fair thing or just at King's Island?

The latest Kings Island newsletter outlined the following as part of their new VIP package:

"The VIP Tour is the best way for your family or group to experience the more than 80 rides, shows and attractions Kings Island has to offer with complimentary parking, front-of-the-line ride privileges including the new Diamondback roller coaster, reserved show seating, opportunity for private character meet and greets, behind-the-scenes tour of the legendary Beast roller coaster celebrating 30 years of terror in 2009, all-you-can-eat picnic-style meal, unlimited soft drinks and VIP Tour credential and lanyard."

First I had heard of it. I was just wondering if this is going on at other Cedar Fair parks or something King's Island is offering. I think it's pretty smart marketing. Will help all those vacationing locally feel like they still participated in something special.

That is a Cedar Fair thing. They've been offering a similar package at Cedar Point for a couple of years now. It must not have done too bad, because they've expanded it to Kings Island. It isn't the most cost effective way to visit ($199 per person), but it is an 8 hour tour (with additional 1 hour break for whatever), and you do get some pretty good perks that stretch across all age groups. Here's the list.

Free VIP parking (reimbursed at the gate)
Lanyard
Personal tour guide for the day
Front of the line ride access for all rides (excludes Boomerang Bay)
Priority seating for shows
Private Nick character meet and greet
Backstage Beast tour...(taken it, it's pretty neat actually)
Souvenir ride or character photo
Free lunch or dinner
Unlimited free soft drinks
Free group photo
Free blue ice cream cone (big park tradition)

Not a bad way to go if one has the funds.

That's pretty cool! If were weren't already doing a Disney trip, I would seriously consider this. I think it's a nice addition. Glad to see CF expanding it to their other parks.
