New Restaurant + New Executive Chef Headed to Kings Island

Kings Island has given details of their mystery project, located within the Coney Mall section of the theme park.  New this season will be the Coney Bar B Que, a "fast-casual" restaurant featuring "various barbecue favorites including smoked St. Louis-style ribs, pulled pork, rotisserie chicken and Queen City Sausage along with a fresh selection of side dishes."

The new dining location will be a part of the park's dining plans, which are continuing to grow in popularity for both season pass holders and day visitors.

Seen in these two pieces of concept art, the building appears to be similar to other Cedar Fair restaurant additions in recent years, with cafeteria style service that allows guests to choose which meal they want as they pass through.  The park will be adding plenty of outdoor seating around Coney Bar B Que for guests to enjoy.

The "restaurant's architecture and theming will pay tribute to the early days of Kings Island and Coney Mall," which is also evident in these pieces of art.

Kings Island has also announced the addition of a new Executive Chef, James Major.  He is a two-time winner of the Food Network's popular show Chopped, among many other accolades.  As an Ohio native he will know exactly what kind of treats visitors will be looking for at Kings Island, and we wish him luck in his new position.
