In 1982, Kings Island rebranded the Enchanted Voyage dark ride to the Smurf's Enchanted Voyage.
As a tie-in with the new theme, the park debuted a new food item: Blue ice cream.
The blue ice cream — a blueberry soft serve — was an immediate hit and has become a staple treat at the park for the past 36 years.
On July 1, Kings Island will celebrate this iconic treat on National Blue Ice Cream Day. The celebration will feature a number of specialty food offerings with a little touch of “blue” including:
- Smoked chicken wings with blueberry BBQ sauce, and corn chips with blueberry salsa at turkey legs on International Street
- Blue funnel cake with blueberry topping at International Street Funnel Cakes
- Blue ice cream fudge, blue ice cream cotton candy available at the Sweet Spot on International Street
There will also be a photo opportunity located near the Blue Ice Cream stand in Planet Snoopy. Share photos with your family and friends on Instagram using the hashtag #KIBlueIceCream.
