While our niece was in town - there was one place that wasn't even a question as to whether we would visit - KINGS ISLAND!
Beast. Seriously?! (5 on a 1-5 thrill scale)
Vortex. At 40 - I know what I can and cannot do. I cannot do upside-down. They look so damn happy don't they?! (4 on thrill scale)
The Racer. Does the blue car ALWAYS win?! I did forget how high the first drop is. Ugh. (4 on the thrill scale)
Adventure Express - another wuss ride - it's even listed in the "family" rides - but still high! And they made me go alone so they could sit together! #thatscrap (5 on thrill scale - wow - good for me)
Delirium. To quote Whitney Houston, "Hells to tha no!" (5 on thrill scale)
Come on!!!!! And they couldn't understand why I wouldn't ride?!
Cat agreed - about the pizza - not my picture taking.
We did not figure it out.
Then Dani had to go - so we took a break - went home and got Larry! Thankfully my riding was done - but I went to be the picture-taker.
Again, the obligatory picture - so cute to see Uncle and Niece together at last!
And there they are - bonding in line - at the Invertigo. Yeah - no thanks. (5 on thrill scale)
No dangling feet for me. But they freakin loved it.
Firehawk. Larry was making sure all was secure while Cat was just up for fun! (5 on thrill scale)
I was taking pics and vomiting.
We decided we needed a little extra sustenance and got 3 Skyline cheese coneys. MMMMMM. 1 each and we were good!
We had a great time at Kings Island - I think Cat said the Diamondback was her favorite. My favorite? The Log Ride. There were others I don't have pics of - but all were fun. And we were BEAT. I could barely even walk the next day!
Why Should You Go? If you have a thrill seeking kid or adult in your life - you have to go. If you have out-of-town visitors - you have to go. If you live in the 5-1-3 - you gotta go. (if only that rhymed)
* I did receive free media passes for our visit.
