Brady Bunch stars returning to Kings Island
KINGS ISLAND, Ohio – If you grew up in the 1970’s, chances are you really had two families: your own and The Brady Bunch.
One of the grooviest sitcoms of the era, The Brady Bunch filmed one of its most popular episodes at Kings Island. The episode, called “The Cincinnati Kids,” was filmed at Kings Island August 20-24, 1973, the second year the park was open.
In the episode, which first aired November 23, 1973, Mike Brady, played by Robert Reed, takes the family with him as he presents his architectural plans for a new addition to Kings Island. The plans become inadvertently misplaced while the family is in the park and a variety of comic situations evolve while recovering the drawings.
