One of the places I always loved going to was King’s Island. Located just north of Cincinnati Ohio on I-71 in a little town called Maineville. We lived in Maineville one summer and had a summer pass several years to visit and enjoy King’s Island when we lived in Cincinnati. Over the years our pursuit of the park changed.
When the kids were little, we spent a lot of time in the kids are of the park. As the kids have gotten older, we’ve moved away from King’s Island, but we do still love amusement parks. We don’t spend any time now in the kid’s area though. Now, we spend our time waiting for roller coasters. Funny how as kids get older the rides they want to ride change. Now we are starting the day off on the toughest ride. Then we have to go to the go-karts and race. The Go-Karts is a long time dispute between the boys and my wife (who is faster in a go-kart) so far the boys haven’t beaten my wife, but well they keep trying.
I try to avoid rides that shake, rattle and roll a lot. They tend to make my back hurt now, for a couple of days afterward. I do enjoy going to the top of the Eiffel tower replica that Kings Island has. I have taken a lot of good pictures from the top of the tower!
