There are so few constants that we can rely on in this world. But I stand by this: the best time to visit Kings Island is on Pride Night. The lines are so short, you can exhaust yourself easily on roller coasters.
I went to ride the Banshee for the first time. The harness contraption that acts as an iron lung almost made it intolerable. Having the ride break down temporarily at the end while stuck in the grips of said harness was doubly bad. But none of that detracted from an evening that involved more than 10,000 steps and lots of wind through the hair.
