I had been looking for that song for years and was lucky to find it on YouTube. This was by far my favorite ride at Kings Island, and it was only because I loved listening to the song.
ROFL...uncontrollably.

Never liked Cedar Point compared to Kings Island. Old, dirty, cluttered, hard to get to, and they didn't have the Hanna-Barbera characters. Kings Island opened in 1972. It was and still is nice and new.
Been to Cedar Point twice and King's Island 20 times...for a reason. You're right about the "feel" of the place. And the crowd is a hell of a lot more civilized in Mason. Reader will fume at that...no Detroit or Cleveland ghetto scum at King's Island. Add to that a travel time less than half of that to Lake Erie...
Oh, did I mention Maureen McCormick's bouncing breasts?

I liked the old Space Ghost too (not since he joined the justice league though). My more modern favorite is Thundercats.

Cedar Point is not dirty.

And how is it hard to get to?

you drive a car to a parking spot. Boy is that difficult.

Does Kings Island have a Marina that you can park your boat?

How about being surrounded by water with a beach, campground, hotels on the grounds, water taxi's?

Cedar Point is recognized as in top 3 amusement park in the world. Kings Island is down in the 20's.

what amusement park has the most and best coasters in the world?

hint...it is not King's Island.

My favorite childhood place was never Kings Island. It was lame to me compared to Cedar Point. Better roller coasters. And you had the Breakers/beach area. No real "themes" going on except bigger, badder, faster rides.
Geauga Lake baby! Sea World right next door. Water, beach...Only 40 minutes tops from my hometown, we lived there in the summer. Loved it when they brought one of the roller coasters to Wyandot Lake. Memories

Nothing like anchoring the boat at Cedar Point. Memories again :)

Son of Beast didn't last long. It was a disaster from day one.

In fact, one day I did ride The Beast all day (or at least five or six times in a row) on an overcast day in June when nobody was at the park. That day, I discovered that the purpose of those lines was also for your body to settle itself down. I was very sick by the end of my sixth ride.
Finally! An explanation for your mental status. Go stand in line Bobby and continue your recovery :)

It's all about the roller coasters. I am something of a connoisseur and my family has centered a number of vacations around visiting some older amusement parks with woodies. Cedar Point is tops with the biggest, fastest, smoothest. Lot of older parks in Pennsylvania. Forgetting the names right now, but there's a park close to Pittsberg with a number of older rides, including a racing coaster and one that starts off with a downhill run rather than uphill. Also in Pennsylvania--further west--is the oldest surviving coaster in the US. Tame by today's standards but thrilling that it still exists.

Michigan has only one amusement park that deserves the name, but it has one of the best new wooden coasters around--Michigan Adventure's Shivering Timbers.

Well, given where you live it's obvious you don't put a premium on curb appeal.
you have not been to cedar point lately either.

I go to both parks every year at least once.

Kennywood is probably the one you're thinking of near Pittsburgh.
I'm with Bob...I think The Beast is the best coaster I've ever been on.

I would rather go to the dentist than to an amusement park.

Bob, you really don't know what you're talking about. CP is the top rated amusement park in the US. Never dirty, very well managed, attracts much more traffic than KI. New coasters every few years, Breakers Hotel is wonderful. Hard to get to? Only if you can't use GPS or read a map.

It is. It was a good value as a High School kid to buy a summer pass and have fun. Close to home, kept us rascally kids outta trouble. Rotated our days going to beach and the amusement park. The trouble started at night :)
Agree dirtier than CP, which is always fun too. Not an amusement park person, too expensive; especially since I like the spinning rides, hubby hates them; he likes the higher type rides, i.e. roller coasters, which I hate. Waste of money. Just my opinion, for those that love them...have fun.

Favorite cartoon show?
Jonny Quest. The first cartoon with characters that had 5 fingers and blinked!
Next would Space Ghost, Birdman, and the Herculoids.
