Kings Island (Mason, Ohio)

I am trying to see who would be interested in a weekend of fun just north of Cincinnati. This will mainly be for those in the tri-state area (Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky) but anyone from anywhere can come. I'm thinking something small and simple on a Saturday at Kings Island. If people want to get together Friday night as well, we can guage interest on that at this time.

 

Current ticket prices are $34.95 for adults and $29.95 for juniors if bought online. This includes admission to the both their theme park and their waterpark. So basically two for the price of one. There are numerous hotels in the area and I can give some advice on where to stay and get the best rates.

 

I have no idea as for when yet, but I take it sometime in the summer. Jeggeman came up with this idea, so I'd like it to be convenient for him and his family to come. I think if there is some interest, then we can see where to go from there.

 

So, anyone want to have some fun?

I've been thinking about taking the kids down there this year. The wife's not a huge fan of amusement parks, but I know they'd have a blast.

 

I'm in Columbus.

If my health improves, I would bring my granddaughter down for the day...as I am just an hour away, I would not need a hotel.

Ummmmmmm...to stay at my house you must...

 

1) Fill out Form 419A...if you qualify for Form 419C then you must fill that out as well only if you leave Form 419B blank.

2) Checkin is between 4:14 and 4:15 pm and checkout is promptly by noon the next day. Overstaying results in theft of services.

3) You must submit to an FBI background check and show proof of insurance.

4) You will wake up at 5 am to go on a 5 mile run. If you do not complete the entire 5 miles, then you need to call the police or EMS yourself.

5) There is a $1000 deposit fully refundable 60-90 days after the stay. A room for one night is $10 though.

 

If you pass the above, sure. :T

We were at Kings Island on Sunday last week! Kids love it. We live in Loveland, Ohio. About a 20 minute drive to the park.

I just got some $10 off admission for adults coupons from Wendy's. It isn't good for children or seniors though. But if I remember right, anyone over 7 has to pay adult prices (I took 2, 8 year olds and had to pay the same for them as I paid). When we went, we got our hands stamped and left to eat lunch where it was lots cheaper, then went back for the rest of the day. Of course with gasoline being so high, it might not make a difference. They also have a picnic area if you wanted to bring your own food. I have not been for about 3 years, but the food and drinks were really expensive.

So would that be a good or bad day to make an official gathering of people from here as well?

Since I am part of your DF family, that means I can get the same deal. Right?:D I don't mind waiting until September Kevin.

I'd love to go :love:... but it's just a little too far from CT :bawling:.

 

Maybe I should organize an East Coast gathering :idea:... No, I'm a horrible organizer. But it probably would be fun :)

Sure, I'd love to go! It would give me a chance to test whether or not my new pump (that insurance has currently denied, BTW) truly reacts to those huge magnets in the roller coasters!

 

Seriously, though, I could swing it....I'm in Indy.
