CINCINNATI – 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-States best family entertainment options – the Kings Island Amusement Park.
Starting on Aug. 15 when the women’s soccer team will play host to its Meet the Team Day at the park, UC’s football, basketball, and soccer teams will make public appearances at Kings Island, which is located 30 minutes north of downtown Cincinnati in Kings Mills, Ohio.
