Paramount's Kings Island, Kings Mills, Ohio

We weren't planning on heading back to Paramount's Kings Island this year but after receiving an offer that I couldn't refuse as in free tickets from Dave Althoff & Dave Bowers wheels were set in motion.  Carrie wasn't that interested in spending a day at a park in November so Bond and I climbed in the car around five thirty in the morning and headed east for our first ever big day long park trip with just the two of us.

Paramount's Kings Island was in the middle of getting ready for the return of Winterfest this year.  The fountains on International Street was being transformed into an ice skating rink for the event.

The holiday decorations were going up all over.  Winterfest is a big Christmas and holiday celebration with decorations, ice skating, parades, shopping, music, a few rides and even more decorations.  Don't expect to be riding coasters in late November and December but I think they'll have the train and carousel open for Winterfest.

After meeting up with Dave Althoff it was time to head on down deep into Paramount's Kings Island for some thrills of the roller coaster kind to start off our day.  Besides after getting about 3 hours of sleep the night before (we had tornados and storms about 2am that we were up keeping an eye on) I needed something to really give me a jolt in order to wake me up.
