Kings Island Flashback: 1975

Daredevil Evel Knievel successfully jumped over 14 Greyhound buses on his motorcycle in the Kings Island parking lot October 25, 1975 to set a new world’s record.  The jump was nationally televised by ABC-TV’s “Wide World of Sports” and held the highest rating in the shows history.  Additions to the park this year included the Zodiac, one of only two double Ferris wheels in the United States at the time, and the world’s largest floral hanging basket weighing in at approximately eight tons
