Summer and Kings Island go together in Southwest Ohio like high temperatures and heat warnings. When temperatures climb into the 90's, it can feel hotter than it actually is – dangerously hotter. But there are plenty of ways to beat the heat and stay cool and safe if you find yourself at Kings Island on an extremely hot day.
Here are seven easy-to-remember tips that can keep you from feeling too much of the burn:
1. One of the most important things you should do is stay hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids, especially water. Juices and carbonated drinks can actually add to the problem.
2. Apply and reapply sunscreen. Don't make the mistake of thinking if you're not going to be visiting Soak City Water Park you won't need it. Sun protection is very important, especially for small children. Be sure to supply some sort of shade for children in strollers.
3. Get out of the sun and catch an indoor show in the Kings Island Theater or Festhaus to get off your feet and out of the heat for 30 minutes.
4. Take advantage of the cooler times of the day before and after the sun is at its highest point.
5. Wear clothing that breathes. Cotton is a great choice. Avoid wearing polyester fabrics.
6. Eat light meals. Smaller and more frequent meals are better than one or two heavy ones.
7. A cool splash on a water ride like White Water Canyon, Congo Falls or Race for Your Life Charlie Brown is a great way to beat the heat.
Above all else, protect yourself by acting smart and making the right choices. Listen to your body and be aware of the extra sensitivity children have to the heat.
