Are you satisfied with your home park? I know I am:) My home park is Six Flags Magic Mountain and that place just plain kicks ***. Although SFMM could add some more flat rides, it's still the best park in the world...IMO. So how about your home park?
I am satisfied with Sfgadv but, I am sure you all knew that anyway ;)I only hope that next year all coasters are operational instead of staring at Viper SBNO and,chiller has both Robin and batman running with lapbars.
I am really not concerned with getting anything next year(although it would be cool) because, Nitro was a great big addition this year.Actually, I like some of the statements that have been made about forgetting a new ride next year and just fixing up the things that need fixing in the park like Rolling Thunder getting some TLC.I have had a great year at the park so far and, I am really looking forward to Coaster Celebration in September :)
Yes my home town park is Disneyland,Disney California Adventure,and Knotts Berry Farm. But I wish that Knotts had better rollercoaster,thrill rides, and more flat rides. Disneyland great. The new park is fun.
I agree with you about SFMM kicking*****but I;m not completly satisfied. I envy all people who have Cedars Point as there home park. I've heard about the quality rides and the friendly staff. When I saw that special on Cedars Point on the Discovery Channel it made me envy people with Cedars Point as their home park even more. Magic seems to be lacking the friendly atmosphere that CP has, and from my experiences the employee's are rude at Magic. When I see those Magic commercials about them having the most rides, I can't help but think what most those rides are not good. The only good rides there are Riddlers, Viper(on its good running days), Batman, Goliath, and Goldrusher(hehe, yes the Goldrusher I'm a sucker for this ride). Colossus, Ninja, Psyclone, Revolution(damn you OTSR), S:TE, and Flashback are not worthy of the "extreme ride" name. Its all apart of marketing. I know that my name is SFMM 4 Ever but thats only because its my home park and I gotta represent. But I would choose to have CP as my home park over SFMM any day.
I have Kennywood. It has some classic woodies and a great hypercoaster, and cool flat rides. I wish they had some more steel coasters, (I heard they were getting one before 2004) although Phantom's Revenge is new it is technically just re-done. If you look at it like that they've had the same coaster for 10 years with putting up a new one other than Exterminator. But I guess I can live with it.
I'm not entirely satisfied with my homepark, sfne. S:ROS is the only awsome coaster there. And, it just crashed so theres no point in going to sfne now. We do have some good flat rides and some ok woodies but that's about it. Hopefully next year they'll get a new B+M so it will keep my intrest.
My home park is Kennywood. Idlewild, Conneaut, Waldameer, Lakemont, DelGrosso's, SFWoA, CP, and Knoebels all act as reserves. I'm very satisfied with all but one, any guesses as to which one that is? ;)
Two words for whether or not I like my homepark, LIBERTY LAND! Here's what I say to you people whining about SFEG and Astroworld, be thankful that you have a homepark that even has a substantial amount of rollercoasters. There hasn't been a new coaster built here in 25 odd years since the Revolution came out. That and the Zippin' Pippin' constitute as the only rollercoasters (pretty pathetic ones I might at, though the Pippin' does have some good airtime). There are almost 0 flat rides and the park is always a mess. So remember Coasterbuzzers, as bad as your homepark is, it can't possibly be any worse than Liberty Land.

I am very happy with my home park - BGW. They might not have many coasters, but the ones they do have are world class. The only thing I would change at this point would be Drachen Fire, but we won't go there right now.
***I could also claim PKD as my home park (Yea! Hypersonic!). I am pretty happy with it, but BGW is number 1 with me.

I'm happy with one of my home parks as two of my favorite coasters reside there. My "other" park a tad south though, doesnt really have much to suit me. So much that I am thinking of not getting a season pass next year. lata, jeremy --You mean out of 11 coasters they all either are short or suck?

Hmm, I wonder? ;)
Yep, you guessed it, my home park is Kennywood. I am very satisfied with Kennywood in all aspects. It's clean, fun, and cheap. They have a great variety of flat rides, and great coasters. I really have no complaints about Kennywood, except for the fact they don't offer season passes, but I understand why.
my home park is holiday world and well i like extreme rides like SOB and MF so in my opinion HW started sucking as soon as i went to PKI and CP. in fact in the past couple yrs i've went to PKI more then i have HW and i only live 5 min from HW. i think they need a hyper coaster but as we all no they will nevr get anything like that cause there a family park.
My home parks would be sea breeze amusement park, roseland water park and sfdl.
Roseland- VERY clean, nice staff (especially since i work there. hehe) and good slides. They could use more slides though.
SeaBreeze- Nice water park, clean, classic coasters, and okay flat rides. I would like to see this park get a small drop ride and a good new thrilling flat ride (the park isn't that big so i can't ask for a mega coaster or anything like that).
SFDL- Great coasters for the most part (i know three are clones but i don't care i like them), pretty good collection of flat rides, pretty clean, crapy water park. This park could use more gardens, more coasters (a b+m, new woodie, impulse or 4-d would be nice) They definently need to enhance the water park and they could use a few more flat rides/up charge rides (i know up charge rides cost extra but some of them are just soo much fun!)
Overall, i like my home parks a lot
------------- "who needs drugs when you have coasters...they're like a natural high"
nope, not even, this is my crap park www.castlesncoasters.com it only has 2 coasters, 1 is a O.D Hopkins crap-looper, the other one is a kiddy that got better ratings than the big one, horrible, not satisfied at all, unless i wanna drive for six hours to SFMM, which i do about once a year.
------------- t h e r e s a monkey in my pocket and he stealing all my change, his stare is blank and glassy i suspect that hes diranged.....
Yes I am. SFGAd is a great park with lots of flat rides, many great coasters, a HUGE new waterpark, friendly staff, great operations, a shady relaxed atmosphere, the Lakefront, two kiddielands, water rides, wide and varied selection of food, good shows, a free fastlane program that works great, exciting up-charge attractions, a fantastic revamped boardwalk, season passholder's entrance and parking, the wild safari, and great scenic rides like the Sky Ride and Big Wheel.
In all, I'm very happy to have SFGAd as my home park; though I wish they'd do something with Rolling Thunder and junk Viper! :)
