Coney Bar B Que and New Executive Chef for 2018 ~ Kings Island

We never turn down good BBQ and Kings Island is set to open a new place for just that this season. Coney Bar B Que will open in the Coney Mall area next to Scrambler.

The theme is a throwback tribute to the early days of Kings Island. We can see this in entrance area concept, with the names of classic Coney Mall rides on the walls.  The outdoor seating areas will feature great views of Grand Carousel and Coney Mall.

The checkout area also looks very well done and we can’t wait to see the concepts realized.

The fast casual concept, will offer many options and be featured on the park’s dining plans.

  • St. Louis-style ribs
  • Pulled pork
  • Rotisserie chicken
  • Queen City Sausage
  • Fresh sides selection

The restaurant will open with the park on 4/14/18 as the park kicks off its 2018 season!

Kings Island also announced new Executive Chef, James Major has joined the park.

He is a 2-time winner of Chopped, and was a contestant on Cutthroat Kitchen. Chef Major is a Culinary Institute of America Certified Pro Chef II, a U.S. Navy veteran, and Ohio native. Previously he was executive chef at Great American Ballpark, home of the Cincinnati Reds and Funky’s Catering.

We can’t wait to see what James will bring to the already stellar line-up of food offerings at the park. Highlighted for us by WinterFest last year!

You can be sure we’ll have coverage of the new restaurant on opening day, so keep it tuned to our social pages:
