Once again this summer the University of Cincinnati Department of Athletics and Kings Island are teaming up to give UC fans the chance to meet their favorite Bearcats student-athletes and enjoy a day at one of the Tri-State’s best family entertainment options – the Kings Island Amusement Park.
Beginning the series of four Kings Island events, the UC volleyball team will play host to its “Meet the Team Day” at the park on August 14 followed by the men’s soccer team on August 21. The UC baseball team will make the final appearance for the Bearcats on October 2. All three events include student-athlete meet-and-greets and autograph sessions from 1-3:00 p.m. inside the main entrance of the park near the Eiffel Tower and fountain.
On Sunday, August 22, head football coach Butch Jones and the defending BIG EAST Conference champions make their annual trek to Kings Island for their annual “Meet the Team Day.” Beginning at 12:45 pm, the team will walk down International Street and will take part in a program on the main stage of International Street underneath the Eiffel Tower. Following the short program, student-athletes will take part in an autograph session until 3:00 p.m.
UC fans looking to attend the “Meet the Team” Days at Kings Island can purchase discounted tickets for $29.99 ($20 off the regular price) on the Kings Island website. NOTE: Discounted tickets must be purchased online prior to the day of the event.
Kings Island is located 24 miles north of downtown Cincinnati in Mason, Ohio. For more information on Kings Island, click here.
