New tax proposal for "Kings Island" and "The Beach"

A new tax proposal, could mean anyone who doesn't live in Ohio, would have to pay more to go to "Kings Island" and "The Beach" water-park.

The proposal, which had a first reading this week, would increase entrance costs by 3 percent and boost parking rates by 5 percent.

Council members say the move would generate millions of dollars each year to help Warren County, but critics say the tax would mean a decrease in the number of park visitors, and could ultimately hurt the nearby restaurants, hotels and shops.

A vote is expected on the issue later this month.
