Ahhh, 364 acres of thrilling glory. From the stomach-testing free fall of Drop Tower to iconic coaster the Beast to Soak City’s brand new seven-story, 449-feet-long waterslide Tropical Plunge, you just can’t do the park justice in a single visit. For the funnel cakes alone, you need that yearly pass.
Opening in 1972, the Cincinnati-area spectacle has a history of leaving its guests out of breath between its more than 45 rides. And while Action Zone is where it’s at, when the lines exceed your patience limit, hit International Street for some cross-continent flair and delicious grub. Only rule of the park: Don’t leave until they sound that closing call announcement.
