Did you know that beetles have roamed the earth for hundreds of thousands of years? It’s true and today, more than 300,000 species of these little guys live in on our planet, everywhere from the hot desert to polar ice caps. They sport a wide range of colors, spots and stripes and typically creep, crawl, climb and fly. But none -- NOT ONE, mind you -- is as cute and fun as Linus’ Beetle Bugs, available for hugging, petting and riding at Kings Island. On this classic whip ride, little ones climb into the roly-poly beetles and ride along an oval track, whipping around the corners with unrestrained glee. Who knew bugs could be so much fun? Here’s an idea for parents from Linus: make sure to have your camera ready to catch those ear-to-ear smiles and uncontrollable giggles as your little beetles whiz around the track.
