Kings Island Flashback: 1973…

On April 18, 1973, the park announced the completion of a $6 million expansion project. Three rides were added – the Flying Dutchmen, the Bayern Kurve, and a second log flume – as well as a new games arcade, a 1/2 mile nature trail, and a sit down, fine-dining restaurant specializing in chicken dishes and sourdough bread. The park gained national attention in January when The Partridge Family aired an episode shot entirely at the park in 1972 called, “I Left My Heart in Cincinnati.” Former Cincinnati Reds great and National Baseball Hall of Fame member, Johnny Bench, and former Miss Ohio, Mary Ann Mobley, guest-starred. Not about to be outdone, the entire cast of The Brady Bunch visited the park in August to shoot their own episode.
