This adventure is for fans of Kings Island who want to enjoy a fun themed adventure inspired by the amusement park from the comfort of your home.
I’m a Kings Island Ambassador which means that I share my love for the park and enjoy perks and behind the scenes access.
I love any excuse for a theme. I’ve been visiting/ a season pass holder of Kings Island Amusement Park in Cincinnati ever since I was a kid. As an adult, it’s fun to create new memories with my family.
I’m sharing ideas to help inspire you to think out of the box. You can customize your Kings Island Themed adventure based on your time for planning and your creative comfort level.
These ideas can be used for a themed Kings Island birthday party or get together.

Create Ambiance with a Kings Island Music Playlist
Music can really help set the tone for your at-home Kings Island experience. You can listen to the music dedicated to each section of the park on the Kings Island Spotify playlist.
I think that it always feels like a movie when you hear the music on International Street as you are leaving after a great day at the park.
The seven Kings Island themed playlists include:
- International Street
- Kings Island Spotify playlist.
- Coney Mall
- Soak City Water Park
- Halloween Haunt
