We made a quick trip to our favorite theme park, King's Island, outside of Cincinnati. This is such an easy trip for us, we can drive there is less than 1 1/2 hours. We hadn't planned on going, but a neighbor gave us a code to use where we were able to purchase tickets for $22 a person, instead of the usualy $45. That includes the theme park and the water park. If you want the code, post a comment on this post and I'll email you the directions.
If you've never been to King's Island and you have toddlers, this park is great. There is an area called Nickelodeon Universe. It is for young kids. There is Scooby-Doo, Backyardigans, LazyTown, Spongebob, Jimmy Neutron, Fairy Odd Parents, etc. When our kids were younger, we would spend the entire time just in this area alone. A perfect introduction to a theme park. My kids enjoy this park more than Disney World.
