    (5/18/2024) Kings Island has confirmed that the new Camp Snoopy area will eb ready to open Friday, May 24th.

 
    (4/21/2024) Good news for Kings Island this week, as the local news reports that the new “Snoopy’s Soap Box Racers” roller coaster has completed a successful test run.

 
    (1/16/2024) Pictures posted to Reddit this evening show off the first track pieces for the new Snoopy’s Soap Box Racers coaster sitting in the parking lot at Kings Island.
 
    (8/12/2023) Kings Island made a surprise announcement this week to announce an expansion of the park’s Planet Snoopy kinds area was coming for the 2024 season. The expansion will be called Camp Snoopy and it will be Snoopy’s Soap Box Racers, a new family boomerang shuttle coaster. As the name suggests, coaster fans will recognize this as a Vekoma Family Boomerang style coaster which starts by pulling the themed train backwards out of the station and up a 73.5 foot lift hill before dropping the train back down, passing through the station at 36mph, and then into a series of twists and turns before running up a steep spike track. After a brief moment of weightlessness, the train will roll backwards and through the entire course backwards once again to the station.
    Also coming to Camp Snoopy is Beagle Scout Acres, a new shaded play space where kids can run, crawl and play with their friends and family. Themed like a campground, the turf covered space will feature grassy mounds and a variety of interactive play equipment to climb on (or through), make noises with and more.   

 

icon_STOPFuture Ride Concepts Guest Survey - (4/28/2024) A new guest survey was sent out by Kings Island to get opinions on possible new ride concepts for the park. Similar surveys were also sent out to guests about Carowinds and Cedar Point, though the style though not all the rides were the same.
    Rides proposed for Kings Island include a strange sounding ‘Tower Coaster’ that would launch riders out on outwards-facing circular cars, through an upside-down launch and up a 200 foot tower with a spiral at the top, only the roll backwards through the course again.
    Also proposed is a 4,500 foot long family launched shuttle coaster, a 300 foot tall B&M Dive Coaster, and unique to Kings Island was a proposal for an Indoor/Outdoor Dark Ride Coaster. Described as taking riders “through a high themed mysterious adventure, part dark ride, park coaster. Encounter multiple scenes and show elements through darkened passages where you’re never quite certain of what lies ahead. Experience surprise track swtiches, speeds reaching up to 40mph, snaking riders indoors and out, with unexpected moments and a startling finale.”
