We arrive at the park right as it opens and I head to The Beast. It may be rough but I think it is the best wooden coasters ever! I rode this a few times and got whiplash from the helix at the end. The Beast is very noisy and my feet were bouncing all over the place.
Next we went to Spongebob. For some reason they weren't doing the pre-show. Otherwise it was the same as P. K. D.
Adventure Express was next on our list. I like the trick ending. We rode this twice. I think it's one of the best mine coasters ever!
Next we were going to do Top Gun, but the line was too long, so we went to get some lunch.
After lunch we went to Scooby's Haunted Castle. It was a very nice dark ride overall. I have one complaint though, the show building is not covered with a facade. I really think they need to fix this problem.
We then did all the boring water rides just to get wet because it was warm. The lines were long that day.
Well I went over to Top Gun and rode a few times. We then got dinner and rode some more rides.
The next park we went to was Worlds Of Fun at the 4 P. M. discount.
We made our way to Timber Wolf and rode it 4 times. One time there were 2 idiots throwing cards off the ride and one neary hit me.
I rode Cyclone Sam a few times and then went to Mamba.
Well for the rest of the night I rode Mamba. This is one of the best Hypercoasters I have been on.
Our last park was Celebration City.
The first thing I rode was the Ozark Wildcat. I rode this about an hour. Then someone had too many Chilli Dogs and made the ride shut down for 40 minutes! During this time they also put a second train on.
I rode Wildcat all day. Then it started raining so hard they had to close for a few minutes because the brakes were wet.
This was a very nice trip and I wish I could do it again. I really did like Kings Island and the Wildcat.

From Matt RogersI forgot to mention Boomerang at Worlds Of Fun got stuck with people on it for about an hour. It got stuck halfway up the chainlift side of the tower and they did an evacuation.
