Kings Island Flashback: 1988

Following the success of the White Water Canyon ride, the park installed another water attraction guaranteed to soak visitors, not just get them wet.  With Amazon Falls (now Congo Falls), a deck was built over the waterfall drop where observers could experience the feel of a “tidal wave” as gallons of water came crashing toward them.  A new 3-D move, “Sea Dream,” added an unusual dimension to the park’s entertainment package.  The movie was directed by Academy Award filmmaker Murray Lerner, who is also credited with reinventing the 3-D process.  The park also initiated an annual Science Day program for children of all ages and levels of scientific knowledge.  Students were challenged to calculate the speed, energy, and physical reactions of various park attractions.  Sixty-two schools throughout the tri-state and West Virginia participated.
