In turn, Mike can bring along the family to spend time at King's Island. They are all excited by the news. Once there, Mike is dismayed to learn that he only has a truncated thirty minute meeting to present the plans before the amusement park's directors, Mssrs.

Robert Reed refused to ride the roller coaster, because they made him sick to his stomach. See more »


When the family is on the roller coaster, it is clear that two very different rides were used during filming. While looking at the family, you can see that there is a second set of cars with riders to their left, as if it's a "race" ride. But when looking from the point of view of the riders, you can clearly see that it is in fact only a single track roller coaster. See more »

strange attraction at King's Island
13 March 2007 | by (Philly) – See all my reviews

In one scene Peter & Greg are 'enjoying' and attraction. It is a robotic 'animatronics'. The robots consisted of heads that opened their mouths by moving the tops of their heads on a hinge - the opposite of how a human does - and they either sang of made musical notes or did both. I went to King's Island the following summer and found them REALLY annoying. At that time they were next to a pavilion/gazebo and you could just walk away. In 1992, I went again and these annoying thingys still existed, but at that time they were located next to the line for a ride. A long line. I think it was the Beast roller coaster. Anyone know what they were? were called? have a pic?
