This weekend, August 25-27, Kings Island is celebrating fire and police personnel who keep our communities safe by offering them free admission to the park. We will once again be in Planet Snoopy to kick of National Child Passenger Safety! Stop by our booth Friday 4:00-8:00pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am-2:00pm to learn about keeping children as safe as possible on every trip, and to sign up to win one of 12 Evenflo safety seats!
As a child grows, their safest seating arrangement will change from a rear-facing to a forward-facing 5 point harness, to a belt positioning booster, and finally to a seat belt. This year’s theme stresses the importance of waiting until the child has reached the top height and weight limit of their safety seat before changing their configuration.
Moving a child to a forward-facing configuration before they are ready, or out of a booster seat before they are big enough, puts them at risk of injury in the event of an automobile accident. Our message is simple: kid’s grow up fast enough. When it comes to their safety, don’t rush it!
To help get the word out, we have once again partnered with our friends at Evenflo and Cincinnati Children’s to film a public service announcement that will air around the Tri-State area. In addition, we will be attending several safety days and car seat check events, and signing up entrants for our annual car seat giveaway. To kick it off we’ll be at King’s Island hanging out in Planet Snoopy–stop by to talk to us and sign up, or register online here!
