Kings America is an amusement park located in Denver, Colorado. It is owned and operated by Cedar Fair.

History Edit

The park opened in 1983 under Taft Broadcasting as Kings America. A year later, Taft sold it's amusement park division to Kings Entertainment, which included the parks Kings Island, Kings Dominion, Carowinds, Canada's Wonderland, Kings Peninsula and Kings America. In 1992, the park was again sold to Paramount Parks who renamed the park "Paramount's Kings America". In 2006, after Paramount Parks went out of business, the park was sold one last time to Cedar Fair, which gave it back it's old name. In 2010, the Nickelodeon Universe kids area (formerly known as Hanna-Barbera Land) was rebranded as Camp Snoopy. It's been that way ever since.
