Planet Snoopy: Peanuts Showplace + Peanuts Meet & Greets
Peanuts ShowPlace is show theater is located inside Planet Snoopy that offers a nice break from the heat.
In 2019 the show "Space Beagle" premiered that featured Snoopy, Charlie Brown and Lucy singing and dancing about how Snoopy was headed for space!
Afterwards guests were able to take pictures with and hug these three beloved Peanuts Gang characters.
For the 2020 season, this show is unfortunately not holding performances as Kings Island has suspended any indoor shows.
I can however, confirm that The Peanuts Gang are still out and about inside Planet Snoopy, behind themed barriers, for socially distanced photo ops.
