Two of Kings Island’s popular family attractions are celebrating their 45th anniversary this year. Race for Your Life Charlie Brown and the Monster originally opened at Coney Island in 1968 at Cincinnati’s Coney Island and were among attractions that were transported to Kings Island in 1971. Several other attractions, including the Grand Carousel, Dodgem, Linus’ Bettle Bugs, Peanuts Off-Road Rally, and the Scrambler, were also attractions that once operated at Coney Island and now reside at Kings Island.
Race for Your Life Charlie Brown made it’s debut at Kings Island in 1972 as the Kings Mills Log Flume. It’s a splash-filled water adventure for guests of all ages. It’s given 43 million rides since it opened in 1972, the fifth-most in park history. The Monster has given 22 million rider since it opened in 1972, the twelfth-most in park history.
Both Race for Your Life Charlie Brown and the Monster were featured in “I Left My Heart in Cincinnati” episode of The Partridge Family, which was filmed at Kings Island in 1972.
