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 this...you 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

MAH BABY. <3

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? :}

thanks for reading. <3

  1. Hahahaha, sounds awesome!! I've only been to an amusement park once, and the roller coaster scared each and every one of us except our dad, so we haven't ever gone back. :P
    Love it!

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…

Good-bye.

Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.



Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
Enjoy.
