MASON, Ohio -- Kings Island is rewinding 40 years to when one of television's grooviest families soaked up the thrills at the Cincinnati-area scream park.

Three "Brady Bunch" cast members are reuniting for one day at Kings Island to commemorate the anniversary of the show's popular "Cincinnati Kids" episode, which filmed at the park from Aug. 20-24, 1973.

Barry Williams (Greg Brady), Christopher Knight (Peter Brady) and Susan Olsen (Cindy Brady) will be at the park on Sunday, May 19 to entertain guests through four shows filled with singing, dancing and "Brady Bunch" anecdotes.

All three cast members will be available to meet fans, sign autographs and pose for photos after each performance.

The "Cincinnati Kids" episode, which filmed during Kings Island's second year, first aired on Nov. 23, 1973. It focuses on Mike Brady taking the family with him as he presents his architectural plans for a new addition to Kings Island. Those plans become inadvertently misplaced while the Brady family is in the park.

"The Kings Island episode is one of my favorite episodes from the 'Brady Bunch,' right up there with the episode shot in Hawaii and the Return of Johnny Bravo," Williams said. "I can't wait to see all of our friends again in Cincinnati."

The shows will take place in the Kings Island Theater and are included free with park admission. Seating is limited on a first-come, first-served basis.

Kings Island opens for the 2013 season on April 27.
