Posted: Updated:

MASON, Ohio (AP) - Kings Island amusement park in southwest Ohio is debuting two new family rides as its starts its 44th season.

The park north of Cincinnati is debuting Woodstock Gliders and Snoopy's Space Buggies on Saturday with the opening of the 2015 season.

Woodstock Gliders is a flying scooters ride featuring eight two-person planes that glide 28 feet above the ground. The planes fan out over a large area as they rotate. Each plane has a stationary rear wing and a moveable front wing that allow guests some control over their flights.

Snoopy's Space Buggies consists of six four-seat vehicles that bounce up and down while rotating in a circle. The additions come a year after the park introduced its Banshee roller coaster.

Cedar Fair Entertainment Company owns and operates Kings Island.
