KINGS ISLAND, Ohio – Have you ever wanted to get an up close and personal look at the longest wooden roller coaster in the world?  Now here’s your chance!

Behind the scenes tours of the legendary Beast roller coaster at Kings Island are available August 1-24 as part of the fourth annual Kings Island for the Cure campaign.  Tickets for the 30-minute tour are just $25 when purchased in advance online at visitkingsisland.com.

Beast tour tickets can also be purchased at the park for $30.

Guests learn interesting tidbits about the ride during the tour, such as the Beast was completely designed and constructed by Kings Island personnel, and how the original design was modified so many times the final product looked nothing like the one envisioned when the project began.  The tour also provides plenty of great video and photo opportunities.

All proceeds from the Beast tours go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Cincinnati.  Since 2010, the Kings Island for the Cure campaign has raised nearly $600,000 in the fight against breast cancer.

Park admission to Kings Island is required to take the Beast tour.

Kings Island is owned and operated by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, a publicly traded partnership that is listed for trading on The New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “FUN.”  In addition to Kings Island, Cedar Fair owns and operates ten other amusement parks, four water parks, an indoor water park, and five hotels.  Cedar Fair also operates the Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park in Gilroy, Calif. under a management contract.
