Kings Island Visit || Roller Coaster Heaven

On August 10, 2013, I got up at around 8:00 in the morning to get ready for my visit to Kings Island. I was excited and nervous, ready to ride the roller coaster I haven't been able to see since 2011... But we'll get to that later.

[all photos via google]

Ahh...the glorious sign of the glorious place.

We arrived at around noon, pumped with cameras at the ready. We took photos in front of the sign [above] and had our picture taken by random employees ready to sell us photos for twenty bucks a piece--and they weren't even that good. o.O

Viking's Fury

After pushing aside the photographers and making our way through the slightly crowded path, we found our first ride of the day. As you see in the photo above, you sit in this "ship" and it rocks you--and let me tell you, that thing is huge in real life. As it gets to its highest rock/swing you can see the sky and AHH, it's just great. An indescribable experience, really. :}

Next was lunch. Kinda boring, but it was a really cool dinner theater experience.

Flying Ace Arial Chase

We waited in line for at least half an our for this bad boy--and it took less than a minute to ride. Well... at least our food had time to settle...

Surf Dog

Ahh!! I loved this! We waited forever--and played twenty questions while we were in line. XD But while we rode, there was this little boy and he started crying...I wanted to hold him and tell him it was okay. o.O

Stunt Coaster

Okay, this thing is seriously the best thing ever [we waited in line for AT LEAST two hours...and it was TOTALLY WORTH IT]. It started out all faster then we went WEE-OH, WEE-OH, WEE-OH, on this corkscrew thing and then we stopped and there was this helicopter with all this BANG BANG! And then there was this WOOSH with the fire and then just blackness with so many turns and twists and...yeah. It was awesome.

The Racers

OMG THE RACERS! I. Love. These. GO RED, GO RED, GO RED! ~(>.<)~

Drop Tower

If you thought I rode are wrong. I've found out on this trip that I am seriously afraid of heights--which isn't cool because roller coasters typically start off with high hills. Anyways, my friend's brother rode this with his girl that was a "friend" [idk man, but these two had a connection. o.O] and the rest of us kinda just watched and let the breeze of the dropping tower whip our hair around.

The Beast

Okay, this thing is AWESOME. Quite rickety, since it's one of the longest wooden roller coasters ever [the next day I had a very sore back and neck] and the line was long [s-so c-claustrophobic...] but I loved it. While we were waiting this line we somehow struck up a conversation with this very talkative girl in front of us. Let's just say, in a matter of minutes, I knew where she lived, how often she came here, what grade she was in and so much more. o.O [but I don't think she even told us her name...]

The Diamondback


Sadly, I did not get the chance to ride this marvelous-ness. It kept getting stuck [insert panic] and the line was forever long. Curse this ride for being so amazing!  \(-_-)/

And so, that concludes today's episode of; Adventures With Rose! Tune in next time to hear me talk complain about rickety swing sets and bees! [haha, just kidding...maybe. O.o]

What do you think about roller coasters? :}

Room Tour 2019

I've always wanted to do one of these posts. If not for the enjoyment of others, for the enjoyment of my future self to look back on and realize how much my style and space have changed.

My door. I think I'm sooo artsy for taping paint swatches to my door. And I actually love how it looks too. I was going for "Starry Night" with my own little twist -- and without the actual paint. ;)

This is what my room looks like from the doorway. Can you guess what the theme is? It's funny -- a few weeks ago I was discussing with Kenzie how my room has this coral and aquamarine vibe to it, yet my Instagram theme is focused on yellows and blues, and my actual fashion style is very grungy/hispter/artsy. So it all comes full circle, I guess? Still, I love my room. It's my safe haven. Now come on in so I can give you the full tour...

Right as you walk in, you will see my DIY jewelry hanging on the wall to your right. It's quite a balancing act when I want to get one of th…

How and Why: Linkup Parties

Starting out as a blogger can be really hard. You want to grow your blog, but even though it seems like you've tried everything, nothing works. Your blog hasn't expanded in the least. You don't see any improvement.

That's why in this post I'm going to share with you the miracle of link up parties! I'm going to go over how they work, why you should create your own, which hosts you should use and much, much more.

Let's get started, shall we? :)

Share this post to help other bloggers learn about linkup parties.
How they work The typical link party can be broken down into 3 basic* parts.

* Every link up is different, so as you're reading through this and considering to create your own, consider adding a unique twist to your link up party. After all, people tend to get tired of seeing the same old same old.

The sponsors These are the people who came up with the original idea of that particular link party. It can be anyone from you on your lonesome to several …
