I need some help...Me and the family have been hitting 2 parks on one trip. For example last year we did Cedar Point and Six Flags Ohio, this past week we did Dorney and Hershey, and in mid August we want to do PKI and ???. We do not want to go back to Cedar Point because we will go there for a week next year. What is the best park near PKI. I know I could look on a map but some of the info I've gotten here is better than looking on a map and guessing.

I would say to stop at Holiday World Amusement Park in Santa Clause, Indiana. They have 'Legend' and 'Raven.'

Or Six Flags kentuckey Kingdom in Louisville. Those are about the only two choices. SFKK has Chang, Twisted Sisters, Thunder Run, and T2. You could hit Holiday world and SFKK in one day they are both small, did that last weekend, PKI on saturday, then Holidayworld and SFKK on sunday.

Yeah, I'd definitely say do SFKK from 10-2, then eat lunch, get in the car, drive for an hour, and do Holiday World for their after 4 price. You'll see everything worth seeing at SFKK, and still get tons of rides on Legend and Raven.

Thanks....How far is Holiday world from PKI and do they have any rides for a 3 year old. If I got a room arounf PKI could I do a day trip to Holiday World?

Quite a way from Cinciatti but it would work for a day trip, they have a great water park at HollidaY WORLD and some pretty good kids parks. i'd say 2.5 hours from cinncinatti, maybe more, maybe less not quite sure.
Does CCI know how to make a bad coaster?

PKI is 3 hrs or more from holiday world, and there are tons of rides for littl;e kids that is what the park is based on.

My brother and I got to Holiday World 2 weeks ago in 3 hours from Dayton, so it'd be about 2 and a half hours from the PKI/Cincy area. They have a great kids area, free parking, free drinks, and good cheap food. I got in, ate 2 meals, played a few games and left only spending about $38. Compare to $48 to park and get into PKI and you'll see why Holiday World is a great little place to hit, and it's good for the kids.

It depends on if you are driving and from what direction you are driving from. If you are coming from the east coast a good place to stop might be Kennywood. If not then I would say get to Holiday World and SFKK

I'll put it out there like this. Last year, me and my fam made a PKI trip and added on SFKK since it was only about an hour away. This year I made a trip to HW which is about an hour away from SFKK. Now, I am generally NOT a fan of 'small' or 'traditional' parks as I feel they have little to offer me.
That being said, I would STILL recommend Holiday World over SFKK. If I knew last year, WE would have made the exta hour's drive. SFKK while not "disasterous" (they do have Chang!) is an underwhelming park. HW is like no other park I've been to. Kinda like a KiddieLand, but with two woodies that I'm still suprised that kids like to ride. Just watch your bladder with all the free soda!

HW is the single best place in the world. Just go.
