Together We're Better
The Partridge Family Lyrics


Last night you know I couldn't sleep, wouldn't sleep,
Tossing and turning about,
Thinking about the way it's been
Hey, it's been so hard to figure out,

We go on sneaking around smokey places all over town,
You go home and it's all over,
Baby you know it's getting me down:

'Cause we're one step short of our heaven,
And we won't stop short till we get there together,
Together baby we're better,
On our own we're fine but united we're dynamite

One step short of our heaven,
And we won't stop short till we get there together,
Together baby we're better, we're better together
Together we're better

You and me sneaking round, meeting in shadows hiding away,
Till we're free to stay together,
All of the time baby all the way,

'Cause we're one step short of our heaven,
And we won't stop short till we get there together,
Together baby we're better,
On our own we're fine but united we're dynamite

One step short of our heaven,
And we won't stop short till we get there together,
Together baby we're better, we're better together
Together we're better.

This episode was filmed at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio, 25 miles north of Cincinnati. The park opened on April 29, 1972 with a grand opening ceremony being held on May 27, 1972. The park was constructed as a replacement/ relocation of Cincinnati's Coney Island, which was located along the Ohio River on Kellogg Avenue. This episode was filmed during the 1972 season and aired in January 1973. Despite this episode being almost 50 years old, several park landmarks, buildings and rides remain the same today.

0:00 - 0:27 — The Grand Carousel. Built in 1926 at Cincinnati's Coney Island by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, the carousel features 28 "jumping" horses and 20 stationary horses. It was almost completely lost during the flood of 1937 when the Ohio River crested at 80 feet and swept the carousel horses as far away as Memphis, Tennessee. It was one of several attractions relocated to Kings Island for the 1972 season and still operates to this day in the same building as seen in this clip, tucked away between International Street and Coney Mall.

0:42 - 1:00 — The Log Flume opened at Cincinnati's Coney Island in 1968. It was built by Arrow Development of Mountain View, California and features a 1,387 foot long trough. It was relocated to Kings Island in 1972 within the park's Rivertown section and named Kings Mills Log Flume. It would remain relatively unchanged until 2000 when it was slated for demolition. However, the decision was made to replace the fiberglass trough with a new metal one by O.D. Hopkins in 2001 and the ride was renamed The Wild Thornberry's River Adventure as part of the park's Nickelodeon Central expansion. In 2010, the ride was renamed to Race For Your Life, Charlie Brown as part of the kid's areas retheme to Charles Schultz's Peanuts. The ride still operates to this day.

1:01 - 1:16 — The Kiddie Whip opened in 1967 at Cincinnati's Coney Island in the Land of Oz kids area. It was built by William F. Mangels Company of Brooklyn, New York, who also made the full sized Whip attractions (One of which operated at Coney). It was moved to Kings Island in 1972 and had gone through several names, such as The Funky Phantom, Alley Cat 500 and Swiper's Sweepers. It currently operates today as Linus' Beetle Bugs.

1:36 - 2:04 — The Racer. The park's star attraction in 1972, The Racer was designed by John C. Allen and built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company. It featured two twin tracks that mirrored one another, both 3,415 feet in length on either side. It is often credited as the coaster that started a renaissance in roller coasters, sparking a building boom for the first time since the World War II. The Racer still operates today under the same name and has received 107 million riders in its life, the most in park history, and continues attract over 1 million riders each season as one of the park's more popular rides.

2:08 - End — International Street. At the entrance if the park is a boulevard of shops and buildings themed to several European countries. International Street featured buildings with architecture from Switzerland, Germany, France Spain and Italy. Each building was designed by former Disney Imagineer named Bruce Bushman. Bushman left the Walt Disney Company to work for Hanna Barbera Studios, which was eventually bought by the Taft Broadcasting Company of Cincinnati, which owned Cincinnati's Coney Island and eventually developed Kings Island. In the middle was the 320' long Royal Fountain, designed by Charles Flatt of Coney Island and built by the Fountain Specialists Company of Milford, Ohio. The fountain lead up to a 1/3 scale replica of the Eiffel Tower, distributed by Intamin AG of Zurich, Switzerland and built in Graz, Austria by Waagner Biro. The tower featured 3 observation platforms, one located at 50' that could be accessed by stairs, and two that were accessed by elevators at 265' and 275,' which can be seen in the show. International Street had gone through several changes over the years, such as new paint, new landscaping and new walkways. The Eiffel Tower had more bars added to the observation decks to enhance guest safety. In 2019, International Street underwent a major renovation with new paint, 130,000 new brick pavers, and aesthetic changes to the Royal Fountain. Even though the landscaping, walkways, and fountain have changed since 1972, International Street retains the same European building façades and the 314' tall Eiffel Tower remains a park landmark.

1:53 - 1:57 & 2:05 - 2:08 — The Antique Car ride was an original attraction at Kings Island which opened in 1972. It featured two sides; Les Taxis in the Coney Mall section of the park and Ohio Overland Auto Livery in the Rivertown side of the park. Both rides were built by Arrow Development of Mountain View, California and featured replica French Taxis and old Cadillacs. The Rivertown side closed following the 1997 season and remained standing but not operating for several seasons, leaving Les Taxis to operate in Coney Mall. Les Taxis closed on August 16, 2004 and both sides were demolished to make way for The Italian Job: Stunt Track, a family coaster built by American manufacturer Premier Rides themed to the 2003 Paramount film "The Italian Job." In 2019, the park debuted a new version of the Antique Cars at the end of Coney Mall called Kings Mills Antique Autos. The new cars were replicas of the Ford Model T and built by Gould Manufacturing of Canada.

'Cause we're one step short of our heaven
And we won't stop short till we get there together

Shirley Jones is beautiful in this video .

@jim ogrady Yes. She got so upset while learning that she told them she couldn't do it. One man refused to accept her declaration and said he could teach anyone and was adamant she could do it. Shirley said they were wonderful and never became frustrated with her. They made her an honorary Teamster.
