Last weekend was my husband’s company fun day at Kings Island. My older 4 have season passes that they got at Christmas so they have been there several times this year. My youngest two kids ages 7 and 5 were super excited to go as this is their only trip this year. They had it all planned out….get there when it opens and stay until it closes.
My plan was a little different. At 28 weeks pregnant I was hoping to survive and with any luck get out of there before closing.
We arrived shortly after opening and we split up into big kids and little kids. The big kids went on a couple of rides together, but when we met back up, we found out that kid #3 and kid #4 weren’t getting along. We then split up with Dad and the boys on one team and Mom and the girl on the other.
A and I went around Kiddy Land for hours. She wanted to do all of the rides. There aren’t many places to sit down, and the lines were fairly long in the afternoon. My legs and back were getting pretty sore and tired.
We met back up with my husband and boys and my older son R took my daughter A into Dinosaurs Alive. It was a Godsend. I was able to sit and rest and stretch my back and legs for the 45 minutes that they were in there. My husband and I talked and S, our 7-year-old rode every single ride that he was tall enough to ride. He rode the Drop Zone, the Beast, the Vortex and the Windseeker. He is most proud of doing is the Drop Zone!
After the Dinosaurs Alive exhibit we split back up and back to Kiddy Land we went. A rode all of the rides that she was tall enough to ride. We started to see all kinds of people with face painting. I heard earlier that it was free all day, but the lines were long. Anyway my daughter decided that she wanted to get her face painted. We waited in line for an hour and she didn’t complain once. She really wanted to get it done.
Anyway I sort of got my wish because we did get out of there 15 minutes before closing! It was a great day, everyone had a lot of fun.
Here are some pictures from our day.
