Brady Bunch reunion: Fans packed The Brady Bunch performances on Sunday at the Kings Island theme park as three of the actors gathered to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the show’s filming on site. 

Actors Barry Williams (Greg Brady), Christopher Knight (Peter Brady), and Susan Olsen (Cindy Brady) entertained, and reflected on how times have changed since the show’s heyday in the 1970s.

Olsen, 51, said her 16-year-old has a mohawk; she reflected on aging together with her fans, according to USA Today. Williams said he unsuccessfully tried to make his son understand how popular The Brady Bunch was.

Williams rapped for the audience. He changed the words of Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady,” to “The Real Greg Brady.”

Kim Williamson went to Kings Island from her home in Huntington, W.Va., to celebrate the Brady Bunch. 

“I think everybody, at some point in their life, wanted to be a Brady. …Their whole family seemed so perfect. They were so nice. I think it resonates with the child in all of us to want to be Brady,” Williamson told USA Today.

The episode filmed at the theme park in 1973 was titled “The Cincinnati Kids.” Some former Brady Bunch actors also gathered at the park in 2008 for the 35th anniversary. In “The Cincinnati Kids,” the family visits the theme park so the father, Mike Brady (Robert Reed), can present architectural plans for a new addition to the park.
