    Been to both, not even a comparison, Kings Island.

    Made my first trip to Busch Gardens this year, and it's my new favorite.

    Neither one really. But you can bet the drive to Kings Island is safer than I-44 to Six Flags. That stretch of highway is easily one of the most dangerous in Missouri, and possibly the country. Not sure if it's the way that highway is laid out, or the fact that few people in Missouri seem to have been able to locate their turn signals, or know how to put down their cellphones.

    Kings Island.

    But if you are wondering which is the funner/cooler city with the most to do it is St Louis and it isn't even close.

    Hard to vote considering I've only been to Six Flags St. Louis, but I love it so I voted. I was looking into taking in a few games in Cincinnati this year or next and did research the Kings Island park. It looks aweswome. I hope to get to check it out next year.

    Swamp, you also have to check out the Aquarium in Newport. It is incredibly surreal walking through those glass tunnels and having sharks swim over your head.

    44 is a mess especially lately as they're trying to widen some parts west of there. No one pays attention.

    Did the Brady Bunch ever go to Six Flags?

    Re: Six Flags St Louis vs King's Island

    Never been to Six Flags- do they have anything to compare with the Beast? It's still my all time favorite roller coaster. It may not be fastest anymore, but for sheer awesome power, there is no comparison to that monster. The thing I really like about it in comparison to other coasters as well is the relative smoothness of the Beast. Of course, it's a roller coaster and it's going to jerk you around, but somehow the Beast does it in a way that is powerful, yet not as hectic as others. I'm in my forties and am not as pliant as I used to be, but it doesn't bother my neck or give me a momentary headache like many others do. I wonder if others have noticed that?

    I was there too. I saw Danny Bonaduce riding a roller coaster, I guess it was the twin racers. He didn't have to wait in line.
