The Kings Island center is about the area of King Island Amusement Pk and the area of Kings Island Amusement Park.

When an amusement park needs its own zip code, you know it's big. The town of Kings Island, Ohio, is made up almost entirely of the Kings Island amusement park. In 1964, developers from the Taft Broadcasting company purchased a 364-acre tract of land in Mason, Ohio, to build a new amusement park. By 1970 they had broken ground, and in May 1972, Kings Island Amusement Park celebrated its grand opening. More from this guide...
