Well, to be fair, Kings Island does require fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo on a couple of rides, but at least they allow you to take a phone with you if you have the foresight to dress properly so it's secured. But yeah, at this point having been to all the CF parks except KD and Carowinds, I'd place Knott's first, then Kings Island, and then Cedar Point. All three are fun places though, I enjoy a day at any of them.

Great report! Kings Island really does have a strong water park. My surprise hit there was the Pineapple Plunge. That thing had some scary airtime.

I regret missing the flume on my most recent visit since the heat index was 100 and I remember that being one of the most drenching ones out there.

Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown is one of the best log flumes anywhere, and it has the absolute best name.

I'm partial to the Yule Log Flume but Race for Your Life Charlie Brown is an awesome name too.

Great report!

The bit about camping out with enthusiasts waiting out the storm was hilarious. :lol:

Except when you meet the finish line with an acceptable amount of wetness and Snoopy fux everything up by douching you with ice cold water.

^ Totally. I did experience that. :lol:

Day 4: It's Familiar, But Not Too Familiar, But Not Too Not Familiar

I took a break that Sunday for some sightseeing around Cincinnati. The last time I was here, I just had enough time for Kings Island, so I wanted to explore a bit of the city itself. I had timed the trip so that the Reds were playing in town, and that was the main event, but I went downtown a bit early to take in some of the sights and have a good lunch before the game.

I looked up some good eats on Trip Advisor, and this place had the reputation for best wings in the city. It instantly became my destination.

They had this really cool old map of Kings Island at the bar.

Ooh yeah I want that sexy bathroom. I want to walk in and turn on the light and see that toilet looking real nice. I'll be like "Oh baby toilet. You look damn fine today."


Of course, going through West Virginia for the first time, I had to stop off at the Wheeling Suspension Bridge. I snapped a photo, then got back in the car, only to find that the next town over is called Triadelphia, which is Greek for... get ready... THREE BROTHERS!!!

Historic bridge credit!

I checked into the hotel that would be my home in Pittsburgh for the next few days. The next day would be the main event, my day at KENNYWOOD!!!!
