Cincinnati Kids

When I wrote about our trip to King’s Island (an amusement park near Cincinnati Ohio) a few blog posts ago, I mentioned how I have the behind-the-scenes Brady Bunch book written by the actor who played Greg Brady on the show, Barry Williams.  A few nights ago, I looked up the episode in the book where the Bradys visit King’s Island, and I read the synopsis (including the part about how the Bradys almost didn’t make it off The Racer roller coaster alive!  If you watch the episode, look for their terrified faces as they pulled into the station –  that was not acting!) and dug up clips of the episode on youtube.com

If you’ve been to King’s Island recently or in the past 10 or 20 years, then you will see how much the park has changed since this episode was filmed – enjoy!

  1. No more Yogi Bear poster to get mixed up with Dad’s architect plans. No more barrels or old fashioned cars with fence for Alice to leap over… HILARIOUS! Sorry for the spoilers.

  2. Alice gets a 7 seven for her jump over the puny chain. I thought it was a fence. Wonder… was “Marge” an actual worker at the park or an actress playing the role? And there were some rides that are still there. Seemed more like a carnival in those days.

  3. I noticed how the kids were all grown up – they look kind of strange to be acting as cheesy as they do 🙂
    I really liked the aerial shot; I could see the similarities between the park then and now; especially the pond. I thought the flume ride looked the same, as did some of the carnival-type rides that you mentioned.
    And I love how Mr. Brady carries around his trademark “I’m an architect” tubes – hilarious!
    And then he loses his plans – no wonder they portray him as the means-well-but-terribly-incompetent-architect in the parody movies. I’ve got to watch those again soon – hilarious!
