Kings Island Flashback: 1977

The park’s major new attraction this year, the Screamin’ Demon, was the first steel looping coaster in the United States to run both forward and backward.  The entertainment program was expanded once again with the construction of the 1,700-seat outdoor International Showplace Theater which was officially dedicated by comedian Dick Van Dyke.  Van Dyke also served as the park’s commercial spokesperson.  Other new attractions included the Fascination game building in the Coney Mall area and the introduction of the park’s famous thick-cut fries at the Rivertown Potato Works.
