Kings Island

We have had a very busy summer and it is not over yet.  We won’t start school until the day after Labor Day.  On Tuesday we went to Kings Island.  Tuesday is the day that most of the schools around here started (though I did hear of some that started on Wednesday).  It was a GREAT day to go to Kings Island.  There were NO lines (well we did wait about 15min for a tram like ride in the kid’s area).  Most of the time we walked up to the gate and got on the next ride.  A couple of times we had to wait through a ride, but that was rare.  On the down side, the park closed a little earlier than normal (8pm instead of 10pm) and there were not any shows (at least that we saw).  Seems like a fair trade-off.

The kids really enjoyed it.  The little ones were the ones that most surprised me.  They were game for ANYTHING.  Honey and Kiddo both rode everything we suggested, even the Beast and Vortex!  Yep, 7yo Kiddo rode the Vortex!  Neither one of them really liked the upside down part, but they said that they would do it again next year.  Dearie didn’t like a lot of the rides.  She wouldn’t ride any of the roller coasters, and it took a lot of coaxing to get her on anything that went up in the air.  After she tried some of them, she liked them and wanted to ride them over and over. (Figures!)  The Scrambler was her favorite.

We just might have to make Kings Island a “Not Back to School” tradition.
