KINGS ISLAND, Ohio — Behind the scenes tours of the legendary Beast roller coaster at Kings Island are available August 1-24 as part of the fourth annual Kings Island for the Cure campaign. Tickets for the 30-minute tour are just $25 when purchased in advance online at visitkingsisland.com.
Beast tour tickets can also be purchased at the park for $30.
Guests learn interesting tidbits about the ride during the tour, such as the Beast was completely designed and constructed by Kings Island personnel, and how the original design was modified so many times the final product looked nothing like the one envisioned when the project began. The tour also provides plenty of great video and photo opportunities.
All proceeds from the Beast tours go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Cincinnati. Since 2010, the Kings Island for the Cure campaign has raised nearly $600,000 in the fight against breast cancer.
Park admission to Kings Island is required to take the Beast tour.
