Winterfest at King’s Island
After a 12 year break this holiday tradition returned in 2017. The holiday event transforms the southwest Ohio amusement park into a winter wonderland. The traditional activities such as ice skating and horse drawn carriage have returned along with the transformation of the parks areas into wonderlands of there own. This time around a few more of the parks rides will be open. Of course the park has a nightly lighting ceremony (5:30pm) where Snoopy and friends light the iconic Eiffel Tower Christmas tree. This event is great for first timers or the crowd who remembers it from its 1990’s run.
Winterfest at King’s Island is one of the best theme park winter events in the United States. It won #2 in 2018. This year it was voted #3 in the nation.
