Kings Island Camp Cedar is affiliated with Kings Island, the beloved amusement park in Mason, Ohio. The outdoor resort and campground is just a short drive from the theme park and draws many Guests who are coming to enjoy the theme park each year. It has both spaces for camping and cottages for families looking to stay near the theme park.

Kings Island is home to more than 100 rides, shows, and attractions. The beloved theme park offers many thrilling rides, including Orion, Diamondback, Banshee, The Beast, Adventure Express, Delirium, Congo Falls, and many more. It’s also home to the Soak City Water Park.

This isn’t the first brawl to break out recently at a theme park. This past January, an intense brawl broke out at Main Street, U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom right in the middle of heavy Disney Park crowds waiting for Disney Enchantment to take place. At SeaWorld Orlando, a family recently filed a lawsuit against the theme park after alleging they were assaulted by a group of teenage Guests and that the theme park failed to protect them.
