Take the family to Coney Island this weekend for the opening of its 28th season, and the debut of a brand-new ride, WIPE OUT!

New live shows include “Musicology,” a journey through different genres of music, and “Safari Adventure,” an interactive kids’ show. The whole family will love the new River Dog Mugs n’ Suds, an homage to old-fashioned root beer stand with cheeseburgers, fries, ice cream malts and floats.
Parks in Cincinnati
How long has it been since you strolled along the Ohio River? Go for a low-key Memorial Day with a walk on the Serpentine Wall in Yeatman’s Cove, then stop by Sawyer Point to visit the Adventure Play Area with slides, swings, a balance beam and zipline. Or add Every Child’s Playground to your list with its horizontal rock-climbing wall and slides. They also have bikes, covered surreys and more available for rent. Visiting the Krohn Conservatory is also a great idea; they always have plenty of activities and events going on.
