Mason
In the resort area of southwest Ohio, Mason features two major theme parks that attract families from all over the Midwest. Kings Island, the bigger of the two theme parks, has won "Best Kids Area in the World" for six consecutive years in a row from Amusement Today and remains a major attraction. Before they head to the U.S. Open, some of tennis' biggest stars show off their skills each summer in the Men's Masters and Women's Open.

At EnterTRAINment Junction, you can Marvel at the world’s largest indoor train display (that’s 25,000 sq. ft. of model trains on an enormous train layout), bounce, climb and crawl in a spectacular children’s play area, discover at our imaginative railroading museum, engineer your own locomotive around a track in a hand-cranked railroad car or ride our narrow gauge train ride, and enjoy the greatest funhouse on earth. It’s like an theme park and it’s all indoors! less
