WindSeeker

New for 2011, Kings Island installed WindSeeker. WindSeeker was placed at the end of Coney Mall, infront of the Action FX Theater. At the top of the tower, WindSeeker gives a great view of the park and surrounding areas!

Kings Island WindSeeker riders sit in 1 of 64 seats located around a central tower. Once in the seat, riders bring a restraint bar over their lap to hold them in the seat, with a seat belt from the seat to the restraint. As the all clear is given, the gondola that everyone is seated on travels up the 301 foot tall tower. As it rises to the top, music begins to play and the gondola slowly starts rotating. As it heads up the tower further, the rotation speeds up. When the gondola and riders are at the top, the rotation gets to full speed of approximately 3o miles per hour. The gondola and riders rotate at the top for just over a minute before descending and slowing down. As the riders reach the bottom of the tower, rotation has ceased. The entire experience lasts about three minutes.

At night, WindSeeker features a marvelous lighting package, which is a thrill in itself.
