If you find yourself in Ohio in the summertime there are few better places to spend a day or two than King’s Island. The rides are world class, the lines aren’t terribly long, and the times are always great. The park can be seen from miles away by the 1/3 replica of the Eiffel Tower that acts as a beacon to its festivities. Be sure to take a ride on the Beast which up until a couple years ago was the world’s fastest wooden rollercoaster. There’s a whole gamut of carnival style games, and some awesome water rides to help cool you down in the sticky humid air.
