Paramount’s Kings Island honors regional emergency and military services personnel from around the Tristate by offering free admission for the last two weekends Oct. 26 – 27 and Nov. 2 –3 of the park’s 2002 operating season. All emergency and military service employees from Cincinnati, Dayton, Indianapolis, Columbus, Louisville, Lexington, Huntington/Charleston and surrounding communities are invited to participate.

Emergency and military service personnel include regional firefighters, law enforcement officers, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, military and other employees of these organizations. Emergency and military workers who present their badge or ID at a special booth at the park’s entrance will receive up to four complimentary tickets for themselves and their guests.

“We greatly appreciate what an outstanding job they do to protect us,” said Craig Ross, general manager and executive vice president of Paramount’s Kings Island. “This is just one small token of our appreciation for putting their lives on the line every day and for their commitment to serving the public.”

Sunday, November 3 is the last public operating day for Paramount’s Kings Island during the 2002 season. The park will be open Oct. 26 - Oct. 27 and Nov. 2 - Nov. 3 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Wow - looks like PKI is learning from Holiday World! Awesome offer.

A day is a drop of water in the ocean of eternity. A week is seven drops.

Actually this makes the second year in a row that PKI has offered this courtesy.

Kudos to PKI, and any other park that in some way, shape or form, gives back to the community and those who serve it.

That's pretty kool, I wish some other parks would do things like this.
