The park was opened in 1972 by the Taft Broadcasting Company and after more than $275 million in capital investments, the park features over 80 rides, shows and attractions including 13 roller coasters and a 33-acre (13 ha) water park. Kings Island has won Amusement Today's Golden Ticket Award for having the "Best Kids' Area" in the world for twelve consecutive years (2001–2012).
