Fun at King's Island
Mason locals are lucky to live just minutes away from one of the most popular seasonal amusement parks in the entire North American continent. King's Island covers more than 100 acres and has everything from roller coasters to a full water park on site. This family-friendly attraction has plenty of adrenaline-pumping thrill rides, but if something more relaxed is your style (or you have kids who are too young for full-size roller coasters), you will still find amusements here, including live entertainment and themed areas throughout the park, such as an Oktoberfest-themed section that features restaurants and a lake.
