Fun 1971 Kings Island Video

Saturday, October 24, 2015 12:30 AM

I came across this promotional video for Kings Island while doing research for an article on the park. At least at the time the video was made Rivertown was going to be named Frontier Land (that sounds so familair....).

Love stuff like this, thanks for sharing! Favourite part is "Kids of today will never be able to ride a train, so we went full size to show them what people used for transportation."!

Here's a similar short film about Cincinnati Coney Island:

Thank you back! Picked up a few bits from the Coney video for my article, which, of course, spends quite a bit of time talking about Coney Island.

John Allen? Wow, talk about greatest hits!

What ever happened to that Tumblebug?

It lives at Kennywood. They bought the Tumble Bug and replaced their track and maybe even the sweeps, I'm not sure about that.

Awesome video! I am surprised I haven't seen that one before. Thanks for sharing!

just pointing out the obvious, but any "live action" shot of a ride had to be filmed at Cincinnati's old Coney Island before it was demolished. Lots of good shots of the Shooting Star in the background where they were talking about the characters
