Okay, so this weekend I made a small sabbatical to Southern Ohio, primary reason, to ride SOB. Due to some quirky travel planning, I ended up with an extra day in the Cincinnati area, so we decided to pay a quick visit to SFKK. I will rate all with the -3, +5 0=slight pos scale, which is semi-standard on this list.

Overall: +1
It would be very hard for me to ever give a park as a whole a negative rating. I think I can always have a pleasurable experience at any park. That being said, this park almost got one. This park was terrible, definitely the worst SF park I have been to. The layout of the park was horrible. Its like two small circles, separated by a roadway and connected by a bridge. After crossing that bridge several times, my sister and my parents and I had had enough. The bathrooms were disgusting. And there just wasn't very much there to keep us from becoming bored. On the positive side, the workers that we talked to were very polite and helpful. The ride ops did a decent job keeping the lines moving. And Chang is that damn good! Funny aside, there were about 8 ops working on Chang when we rode, 5 in the booth and 3 on the platform. Must have been an air-conditioned booth. Final note the weather was beautiful and the Sunday crowd was light.
On to the coasters….(in order of riding)
#coasters are compared to other coasters in their genre wood-to-wood, shuttle-to-shuttle, etc. #

RoadRunner Express (?) Wild mouse type coaster +3:
This was a fun little coaster. I had never been on a wild mouse before, but this one did a good job of creating the illusion of falling off the side. A little slow paced, but it did have a nice little air-producing dip towards the end of the ride. Nice for the kiddies. The reason there is a question mark behind the name of this ride is that I have no Idea was it is called.
