Adventure Express is an Arrow Dynamics hybrid mine train roller coaster located at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio, USA. The ride is well known for its anticlimactic finale, with the ride's largest lift hill only leading straight into the station and not the large drop which is seemingly being built up to.


Adventure Express opened on April 13, 1991.

For the 2023 season, the ride will have additional theming elements added and the queue line will be relocated. It will become part of the new Adventure Port themed area.[1]
