Slime Time Coming To Kings Island

Kids getting slimed at Kings Island could be seen nationally on Nickelodeon this summer.

Slime has been a part of the fun at Kings Island for years, but another truckload is coming.
Nickelodeon's 18-wheeler Slime Mobile, hauling 1,200 of the green goo, stops at Kings Island July 14 as part of the 20-city "Slime Across America" summer tour. Kids can get slimed, play games and watch a Nick Live! Slime Edition stage show at noon, 2 p.m. or 4 p.m. that Saturday in the Kings Island parking lot.

Nickelodeon is sending along a video crew to tape highlights for its "Slime Across America" TV promotion. Clips from the Slime Mobile's stops will air during commercial breaks 5-7 p.m. July 6 through August 17. "Cincinnati is one of the stops they're filming, so there is a good chance it will be featured on the air," says Joanna Roses, Nickelodeon publicist. Another reason Kings Island clips very likely will be used: Mason is the third stop of the tour, after Los Angeles (July 2) and Milwaukee (July 7). More details will be posted at

A little Nick and slime trivia: Nickelodeon began in 1979 on the old Warner-Amex QUBE cable system in Columbus, about the time Warner-Amex (now Time Warner) was starting to wire Princeton School District communities in Hamilton County... Slime was introduced on Nickelodeon's "You Can't Do That On Television" in 1982... Kids and adults also have been slimed on "Double Dare," "Figure It Out" and "Slime Time Live".... Slime and Nickelodeon became part of Kings Island after Viacom bought Paramount in 1994.

"other beatles members"?

There are no other Beatles members. George & John. Maybe Pete Best?

Kings Island should dig through their archives to figure out why their attendance is down:

Their commercials are horrible. Too laid back. MedMart is more excitable!

Aim your focus to the teenyboppers, not the 49 and above crowd. This ain't Cedar Point, It's Kings Island....

and bring back the old logo!
