Kings Island to debut Reds-themed restaurant in April



Reds fans who migrate into Kings Island this year will be greeted to a tasty new attraction.

The popular Ohio amusement park, owned by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, is slated to unveil "The Reds Hall of Fame Grille" when the park opens its gates for the season April 27.
The full-service, air-conditioned restaurant will feature authentic Reds memorabilia, framed jerseys and photos, and other bits of history dating back to the 1800s from the first professional baseball team. 
The park teamed with the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum on the new restaurant, which sits in the Rivertown area near the Diamondback roller coaster. 
Paying homage to the history of the Reds and the players, video highlight reels from World Series, playoff and other games will play on the more than 20 TVs located throughout the restaurant. Visitors will also be able to watch the Reds games on TV and order, purchase and print tickets to games at Great American Ball Park at a kiosk.
The restaurant menu will include such mouth-watering items as burgers, chicken wings, baby back ribs, Montgomery Inn pulled pork, Saratoga chips, wraps, appetizers, homemade desserts, and alcohol, of course.

“The Reds Hall of Fame Grille will be a paradise for baseball fans and will allow guests the opportunity to sample the rich history of the Reds during their visit to the park,” Kings Island vice-president and general manager Greg Scheid said.

I didn't originally have a trip to Kings Island on the to-do list for this upcoming summer, but I may have to check this place out and see if it lives up to the hype. The place sounds like heaven.
