KIngs Island’s Historic Scrambler Celebrates 45 Years of Spins and Smiles

Kings Island, OH, USA — It’s not the tallest or fastest ride at Kings Island, but it is one of the most recognized rides in the park.

The Scrambler is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year and has delighted generations of people since it made its debut in 1969 at Cincinnati’s Coney Island, and continues to put smiles on faces of guests old and young, whether they are experiencing it for the first time or reliving childhood memories.

Manufactured by the Eli Bridge Company of Jacksonville, IL, the Scrambler was among the rides transported from Coney Island to Kings Island for the park’s opening in 1972.

The classic midway attraction features cars that are mounted on counter-rotating arms, which produces strong accelerations and side-to-side movement, changing force and direction rapidly during the one-minute, 45-second ride length.
