Kings Island

Attention all campers! Kings Island has some exciting news for you! They are expanding their beloved kid’s area, Planet Snoopy, and transforming it into Camp Snoopy. This expansion will bring in a brand new roller coaster, a fantastic play area for kids, and much more!

Let’s start with the thrilling addition of Snoopy’s Soap Box Racers, a family-friendly boomerang coaster that will surely get your adrenaline pumping. Riders will experience the exhilaration of zooming down a launch hill, reaching speeds of up to 36 miles per hour. The 672-foot racetrack is filled with twists and turns, making it an unforgettable soap box derby experience.

But that’s not all! Camp Snoopy will also feature a new play area for kids and a relaxing space for families. Beagle Scout Acres will be designed like a campsite, complete with turfed mounds and grassy areas. Kids can have a blast with interactive equipment that makes noise, climb through or over tents, and follow footprint paths created by Woodstock and his friends.

And here’s the cherry on top! The expansion will introduce a whole new way to play. Park officials have promised that it will feel like a day at camp for kids, with the Peanuts gang leading park-goers on exciting “Camptivities.” Imagine raising the flag up the flagpole, lighting a campfire, or even making the camp bugle sound. It’s going to be an adventure-filled experience for everyone!

According to Mike Koontz, the vice president and general manager of Kings Island, Camp Snoopy is exactly what families have been waiting for. This immersive area has been carefully designed to provide a day at camp experience, where families can create lasting memories together. From the thrill of the new coaster to exploring and relaxing in the great outdoors with their favorite Peanuts characters, there’s something for everyone at Camp Snoopy. So pack your bags, gather your loved ones, and get ready for an unforgettable adventure at Kings Island!
