A Blast From The Past! - Kings Island's International Street

Editor's note: This is the first in what we hope will be a regular or semi-regular peek into our amusement park archives.

Here's a look at the beginnings of Kings Island's International Street, taken from the area where the Eiffel Tower now sits. The buildings & fountains are shaping up, but not much has been done to the entrance or parking lot

Ground was broken on June 15th 1970 and the park officially opend on April 29th, 1972. This photo was taken during the early stages of construction.
