  1. These adrenaline-pumping toboggan hats are the perfect addition to your Christmas shopping list for any die-hard Kings Island enthusiast. https://themeparksbydon.com/kings-island-ride-toboggan-hats-for-the-ultimate-fan/
  2. Dust off your dancing shoes and warm up your vocal cords! Kings Island will be holding auditions for its 2024 Summer Season this month. https://themeparksbydon.com/seize-the-spotlight-audition-for-kings-islands-2024-season/
  3. Universal Destinations & Experiences has officially unveiled the Universal Kids Resort. https://themeparksbydon.com/universal-kids-resort-to-be-magical-haven-for-family-fun/
  4. Dollywood has once again proven itself a beacon of exceptional customer service, earning a place in Forbes’ prestigious Best Customer Service list. https://themeparksbydon.com/forbes-recognizes-dollywood-in-top-1-for-customer-service/
  5. The Hatbox Ghost has materialized on one of my all-time favorite rides, the Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. https://themeparksbydon.com/hatbox-ghost-a-spine-chilling-addition-to-wdw-haunted-mansion/
  6. Fifty years ago, on Nov. 23, 1973, The Brady Bunch episode filmed at Kings Island made its debut on ABC-TV. Episode No. 106, titled “The Cincinnati Kids,” was captured over five days in August 1973. https://themeparksbydon.com/50th-anniversary-the-brady-bunch-episode-at-kings-island/
  7. Both really good events, but I would give Hersheypark's Christmas Candylane the edge.
  8. I had the opportunity to experience Hersheypark’s annual Christmas Candylane event. It was nothing short of magical! https://themeparksbydon.com/hersheyparks-christmas-candylane-a-cant-miss-celebration/
  9. If you’re going to be in the Bristol, CT area over the holidays, here’s a piece I did on Lake Compounce’s Holiday Lights event. https://themeparksbydon.com/lake-compounce-unveils-the-magic-of-holiday-lights/
  10. You know, the only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story, the ending. And this one... is very good. (Smiles, closes laptop.)
  11. The Four Drummers Drumming show at WinterFest was a crowd-pleaser for guests of all ages. The social media buzz with photos and videos truly captured the essence of the experience. Those third-party impressions are priceless and will be missed!
  12. Dollywood added 23 operating days for 2024. https://themeparksbydon.com/dollywoods-2024-a-year-of-extraordinary-adventures-and-experiences/
  13. The National Roller Coaster Museum & Archives has received a fully restored Ottaway Steam Locomotive and passenger cars from Chance Rides in Wichita, Kansas. Although not a roller coaster, this rare addition significantly enriches the NRCMA’s collection, highlighting its commitment to preserving diverse facets of amusement park history. https://themeparksbydon.com/coaster-museum-receives-restored-ottaway-steam-locomotive/
  14. Not this year. Going to be traveling the following week and two more trips planned in December.
