Adventure Express

Adventure Express is Kings Island’s runaway mine train. Riders on board are sure to go through an adventure as they begin their ride! The ride begins with a few quick turns into a jungle. The runaway train then quickly gains speed as it goes into the first of four themed tunnels. To the riders surprise a sign on the outside of the tunnel let’s them know that the track is closed.

Thankfully, the riders pass through the tunnel without any issue, but they find themselves in a 2nd tunnel that is themed to a booby-trapped temple. Narrowly escaping the mine train climbs a lift-hill. The lift-hill is even themed to with crooked archways and Polynesian tiki masks. As the train crests the hill it starts turning to the right and descends downward. From here the roller coaster segment of Adventure Express starts.

The runaway mine train then goes through a variety of turns and under several ancient ruin archways. The train then heads straight toward the 3rd tunnel themed to a volcano.

Upon leaving the 3rd tunnel, the riders head toward the final tunnel. The final tunnel features the ride’s largest lift hill, pulling the riders between large stone warrior statues with glowing eyes who bang on drums rhythmically. At the top of the hill, the “head” stone warrior warns the riders, “You have disturbed the forbidden temple, now you will pay!” As riders pass under him, an urn of “boiling lava” tilts toward the train as if it will flow onto the riders.
