MASON, Ohio — The Cincinnati area’s biggest amusement park is encouraging its guests to leave the cash at home.

Starting in mid-July, all Kings Island locations will only accept credit or debit cards or an online payment form like Apple Pay or Google Pay, a news release from park spokesperson Chad Showalter said.

For visitors without card or online-based forms of payment, the park will offer kiosks in five locations across the park that will transfer cash to a card which can be used anywhere, not just at Kings Island or Soak City Water Park.

Each card can be loaded with up to $500 and must have a minimum of $5.

The park's websitesaid going cashless will allow them to conduct contact-less transactions.
