King Island Will Go to Cashless Payment System this Month
Depending on who you are you may or may not be overjoyed by this news. On one hand, you don’t have to worry about carrying a lot of money around an amusement park. On the other, you may prefer to pay for certain things, like a day at Kings Island, in cash. Either way, you should be aware of the big news that starting this very month Kings Island will no longer accept cash payments at their park.
What does this mean for you? Well, starting mid-July (next week) you will only be able to use credit cards, debit cards, Apple Pay, or Google Pay for any sort of transaction at Kings Island. The main reason the park is going to a cashless system is that, according to the park’s website, it will be faster and more secure.
Now, let’s say you are the type of person who would prefer to use cash for a day at the amusement park. You are not going to be turned away from a fun day at Kings Island. There will be multiple Cash-to-Card kiosks set up around the park where you can transfer your cash into a payment card. Plus, that card will be good anywhere you need to make a purchase; not just Kings Island.
I’m sure at first there is going to be some pushback from people on the new system but it’s honestly not a bad idea. Carrying a lot of cash around an amusement park can be a bit worrisome. Just ask a younger me who may or may not have dropped some money at Holiday World before. Anyway, if you do plan on heading to Kings Island the rest of the summer make sure you have your cards ready to go.
