For a family of eight, Kings Island is a little pricey, but seeing the kids’ smiling faces is always worth the price of admission.
Since we have varying ages and sizes, navigating through Kings Island is sometimes a little tricky — the older kids want to hit all the bigger roller coasters, and then the little ones want to join the bigger kids (which they sometimes can’t do)!
This year, we found a great compromise with Kings Island’s water park. The water rides appeal to kids of all sizes and ages.
You can never really go wrong with Kings Island, and with shorter lines and quick waits, we really lucked out!
