Kings Island, outside of Cincinatti, Ohio, is offering free admission to teachers, healthcare professionals and first responders as a way of saying "thank you" for what you do.

Folks who work in those fields are going to be able to get into  Kings Island and Soak City Water Park on select dates in August for FREE. Friends and family members will also be able to get tickets at a discounted price. It's just a short drive from the Tri-State, so it would make for a fun weekend road trip!

Kings Island has set the first three weekends in August as  “Community Appreciation Days”. According to Kings Island's website here are the details for those weekends:

Teacher Appreciation Weekend

To celebrate the start of a new school year, Kings Island is offering free admission to educators August 2-4.

Educators who qualify for the free admission ticket include teachers, faculty and staff. A valid school employee ID, or a valid teaching license with a photo ID, must be presented at Kings Island to take advantage of this offer.

 

First Responders Days
