Kings Island, Cincinnati
I loved coming here as a kid; haven't been here since 1999! I need to make some time to return...
It's a typical amusement park. Great rides for adults (Beast, Face-Off) and rides for kids too. It is a Paramount Park, so the characters you will see walking around will be Flintstones, Jetsons, etc.
Amusement Park near Cincinnati
Offers really cool thrill rides and family entertainment
A nice park and a blast for all who are into amusement parks
Scary thrill rides include Delirium, Face off, The Beast, Flight of Fear, etc. ---> check out: http://www.pki.com/attractions/category.cfm?ac_id=18
I most enjoyed Flight of Fear and Vortex.
Going the Racer backwards was fun too.
I almost got sick on TOmb Raider though .... Sitting head down in that gigantic swing was not really my thing, but well ;)
Take a ride to the top of our one-third scale replica of the original Eiffel Tower for a panoramic view of the park!
The Midwest's largest theme and water park with 364 acres packed with more than 80 rides and attractions including a 30-acre water park, WaterWorks, free with park admission. Ten fantastic shows entertain and delight all ages
A great place to see all of Paramount's Kings Island!
Still the World's Longest Wooden Roller Coaster for over 20 years. The legendary Beast still seizes it's prey in it's terrifying grip, roaring through the wilderness on 7,400 feet of track at speeds of over 60 mph through dark tunnels and it's signature twin helix! Consistently named the best wooden roller coaster in the world by enthusiasts everywhere, don't miss your chance to feel the grip of The Beast!
If you are like me, you remember an eppisode of the Brady Bunch where the kids went to an amusement park while the father had a meeting. Well, that is Kings Island, the same park where Evil Kenival jumped over some busses on a motorcycle, and where some guy set a record for tight rope walking over fountains.
It is exactly like every other Six Flags, bush Gardens or Paramount Park on the planet, lots of rolelr coasters, expensive food, lame shows, and other rides.
I am not a big fan of Kings Island, it always seems to be overcrowded and the rides are getting to the point where you have to have a 23 inch waist to fit in any of them.
Still there is plenty of fun to be had. The trick to Kings Island is to go on a Tuesday, when it is somewhat cool and overcast. The crowds tend to be smaller. On the average day, some roller coasters have a 2 or 3 hour wait, so pick your days wisely.
Tickets are $33 for an adult, $26 for children and $9 for parking.
Part of Paramont's chain of amusement parks across the country. If you like wooden rollercoasters than the Beast and the Son of Beast are the coasters are two of the best in the country. The beast is the longest wooden coaster and the son of beast is the tallest and only wooden coaster with a loop. The park also has a water park included for those hot days.
Always going neck and neck with Cedar Point in Sandusky for the most number of roller coasters of any park in the nation. Last I heard, each had 12 or 13. For thrill rides, no other parks in the country can compare to those two.
King's Island (Paramount King's Island)
This is probably the biggest amusement park I've been to, and certainly the best. The emphasis here is on roller coasters, and I do love roller coasters! There's The Beast, which is a huge wooden roller coaster, and well worth the wait in line if you get there early enough (I suggest arriving in the park before the rides open). Anyway, there are tons here and more being built I'm sure. Friend and I rode one of them 20 times that day (the racer i think). Lots of fun!
This was my first 'road trip' from home after getting my license! :)
