The thrill of being among the first riders on the new Orion roller coaster at Kings Island will have a whole new meaning when Kings Island hosts a First Riders Auction event to raise money for A Kid Again.
For the past 24 years, Kings Island has hosted our most talked about about Adventure and we are excited to have them partner with this year to raise funds and continue more Adventures for our families.
During the Orion First Riders Auction event, Kings Island fans and roller coaster enthusiasts alike will enjoy an evening filled with riding one of the most anticipated new rides in the amusement and theme park industry over and over again from 6-9 p.m.
All participants must raise a minimum of $150 for A Kid Again to participate and will receive a certificate of participation, an Orion First Riders t-shirt, food and unlimited rides on this amazing new attraction.
Upon creating your fundraising page, be sure to share the link with your friends on Facebook and followers on Twitter to let them know you are participating in this event and how they can help you reach your fundraising goal by making a donation.
Plaques will be awarded to the top five fundraisers. The top 32 fundraisers overall will kick off the event with a ride on the first train. In the event of a fundraising tie for available seats, a random drawing will be held to determine the rider(s) on the first train.
Fundraising ends April 3 at midnight.
Orion will be one of only seven giga coasters in the world, a class of roller coasters having a height or drop of 300-399 feet. Riders will plummet down an exhilarating 300-foot first drop at a 85-degree angle before sending them on a high-speed journey over seven more hills and 5,321 feet of track at speeds up to 91 mph on the tallest and fastest steel roller coaster at Kings Island.
