On this date in 1973...


Recommended Posts

Being born in Cincy and then moved off to West Texas in the fourth grade, I clamored for anything that showed the Cincy area and in particular KI. I was so bummed living in a place where the nearest coaster or park was many hours away. Tumbleweeds and dust storms are no substitute for hills and trees and rivers. I missed the my hometown and area something fierce.

However, I was fortunate enough to visit my grandparents who lived in Cincy for the summer up until high school, so KI was my special place I waited all year to go to. A long time ago, I copied this Brady Bunch episode finally so I could have see the park anytime I wanted (long before the internet) living so far away. 

Now, for many years, I live nice and close to the park that has always meant so much to me.

To really celebrate Kings Island's 50th anniversary, it would be great for them to finally reveal what Mike designed for the park.

Going by when the episode aired in relation to park development that occurred shortly thereafter, and Mike Brady saying the plans were for a "new area of the park," my guess is he was the one who designed Lion Country Safari for the 1974 season.

But that throws out the whole 5 year plan theory.  My money would be that Mike Brady actually gave Jeff Gramke and Charles Dinn the exogenesis of the area The Beast resides in.  So, Mr. Brady is the grandfather of The Beast.  ;)  Think about it:  Concept to board in '73.  Construction begins in '77.  Opens in '79.

Thanks, that makes me feel good.  I grew up watching reruns of the Brady bunch.  Kentucky Kingdom was not around when the Brady Bunch went to KI.
