Kings Island to offer food for $1

Amusement park plans Labor Day weekend deal


Kings Island will offer a tasty deal Labor Day weekend.

The amusement park at 6300 Kings Island Drive in Mason plans to sell blue ice cream, cotton candy, scooped lemonade, watermelon slices and slices of LaRosa’s Pizzeria pizza for $1 each Aug. 30 to Sept.1.

“Dollar Days is becoming an annual tradition for our guests as a way for them to celebrate a great summer of fun, thrills and time shared with family and friends,” Kings Island Public Relations Area Manager Don Helbig said in an email.

The deal could potentially make a trip to the park go down a little easier.

Eating there can test anyone’s budget even with a plan.

The park’s single-meal dining plan includes one entree, a fountain drink and side for $12.99.

An All-Day Dining Plan is $29 and includes an entree and side every 90 minutes.
