Kings Island. I have a vague memory of us going as kids and having a ton of fun. I could also be remembering a rerun of the Banana Splits. Tra la la. I couldn't wait to take my kids!
The kids and I drove to Cincinnati to ride the rides, see Snoopy, and take a Tropical Plunge. The drive from Cleveland was only three hours. Funny how some places seem so far away when in actuality it's just a tank of gas away.
We arrived just after lunch and wasted no time getting on rides. I brought along the kids' teenage cousin so I could also ride some rides. She and I took turns with RD, my soon-to-be-first-grader. One would hang out with her, while the other went on the bigger rides with my other Spawn.
We did not get to climb inside an Aqua-Launch chamber. The floor did not drop out from underneath our feet shooting us into an almost vertical free fall towards flat loops and curves.
We also did not get to try the dueling tube slides that are 337 feet long nor the slide with four 360-degree loops across 449 feet of slide.
Soak City took on a whole new meaning for our trip to Kings Island. Before we could get to ride a waterslide, the sky opened up and poured rain.
WE HAD THE BEST TIME.
Sure, not what we expected, but many of the rides in Snoopy Planet did not stop for the rain. Since I was already soaked - I agreed to Race for Your Life water ride. It was so much fun, I got the photo!
And, most of the rides at Snoopy Planet accommodate adults! My son, who is not a big thrill fan, could ride the rides with his sister. Actually, I could ride some of the rides, too. Three words about Linus' Launch - Dizzy. As. Heck.
