Technology upgrades to the Royal Fountain will allow for choreographed daytime and nighttime shows featuring water that shoots 50 percent higher into the air, and the ability to individually control each of the fountain’s new 112 nozzles and 176 LED lights.
An expanded bandstand stage in front of the Eiffel Tower will allow for bigger celebrations and performances.
“For many of our guests, visiting Kings Island and seeing the Eiffel Tower and Royal Fountain for the first time was a moment they’ll never forget,” said General Manager Mike Koontz. “This season they’ll discover the magic of International Street again, spending more time there than they have in a long time.”
