Shauna Steigerwald reports:
Kings Island will open a new Christian Moerlein Bier Garten this season.
The full-service bar will serve German fare, fried pickles and appetizers, plus plenty of Christian Moerlein draft beer.
“Cincinnati has such a German heritage,” said Don Helbig, public relations area manager for Kings Island. “That’s something our guests have been asking for, some kind of German fare.”
It’s been decades since German food was available at the park. The Festhaus served German fare in the 1980s and early to mid-1990s, Helbig said.
The new bier garten will be located near Viking Fury, on the back side of Hank’s Burrito Shack, which opened last season. It will be an open space, with umbrella tables to seat about 200 people.
Kings Island opens April 27.
