The Beast can help fight breast cancer.
Kings Island is offering “behind-the-scenes” tours of the Beast roller coaster now through Aug. 25 as part of its annual “Kings Island for the Cure” campaign, park officials announced Wednesday.
Tickets for the 30-minute tour cost $25 and must be purchased in advance online at www.visitkingsisland.com.
“Guests learn the story behind the Beast and have an opportunity to ask questions during the tour, which provides plenty of great video and photo opportunities,” a news release said.
All proceeds from the Beast tours go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Cincinnati affiliate. Since 2010, the Kings Island for the Cure campaign has raised more than $435,000, including $219,000 last year, park officials said.
Park admission to Kings Island is required to take the Beast tour.
