MASON, Ohio -- Kings Island is honoring those who protect our community by offering free admission this weekend to all active fire and police personnel.

A valid fire and police photo ID must be presented at Kings Island to take advantage of this offer from Aug. 26 to 28. Fire and police badges and identification cards are accepted only if accompanied by a photo ID. As all ID must reference specific fire or police duty, government-only issued IDs will not be accepted.

Fire and police personnel who quality for free admission include firefighters, EMTs, uniformed police officers, state troopers, border patrol agents, investigators, evidence technicians, firearms examiners, crime lab technicians, 911 dispatchers, correction officers, hand writing examiners, intelligence analysts and investigative assistants.

The offer also allows fire and police personnel to purchase admission tickets at a special price of $29.99 for up to six family members, a savings of $35 off the regular front gate adult admission price.

In addition, guests will have an opportunity to interact with emergency response teams and vehicles.

Kings Island will be open Friday from 5 to 10 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
