coaster riding on your honeymoon...

Tuesday, April 29, 2003 6:13 PM
hey guys,

i haven't seen this one brought up before so i thought i would just ask and see...how many of you guys have went to any amusement parks on your honeymoon?

i'm getting married in july and my wife and i are heading to disney for a week and are also probably going to head over for a day at ioa. every since we have started dating she has frequented parks with me, it's become a hobby for us.

anyone else have a similar experience for their honeymoon? if so, did you enjoy it? was it a good idea?

I proposed to my fiance(sp?) at Cedar Point last year. We're going to check and see how much it would cost to get married on CP's beach, and if they even allow it. And, of course, we would have to stay there for the honeymoon.

Even if we can't get married there, that's the honeymoon spot.

Now that I think of it, my mom went to CP for her 2nd wedding honeymoon and my grandparents went to Buckeye Lake.

We went to Hawaii on purpose because there were no coasters there.

Well if thats your reason for going to Hawaii, you could have easily had your honeymoon in Alaska. ;)

While we didn't ride coasters on our honeymoon (no coasters in the Cayman Islands.) We did go to Lesourdesville Lake last year for our first anniversary. It was the first time either of us had been there and the Screachin Eagle was great. It ended up being a fun day. It wasn't crowded and we just took our time. Nice relaxing day followed by some good grub in Springfield, OH, where are alma matter is (and where we met.) I'd do it again, but maybe this year it will be Lakeside out in Denver.

Alaska in November? Is it 86 every day with free mai-tai's every night?

That's what I thought. ;)

Um, no. Hopefully you have better things to do on your honeymoon.

Although, in every vacation since my honeymoon in 1999, I've worked in an amusement park. This summer's trip to Miami will be the first trip out of 7 that I didn't work in a park (unless I can get to the DB Hurricane...).

Mai tai's are ok, but it's the kona coffee the next morning that sold me... :)

I must say, when I was there in November for a friends' wedding, it was actually killing me a bit to be out in such gorgeous weather and NOT have a coaster anywhere to credit-whore on. The volcano park made up for it, though -- absolutely breathtaking.

I am getting married in June, and we are going to 3 different amusement parks. We are from Cincinnati, Ohio. First we are driving down to Six Flags Over Georgia (we have Six Flags season passes), then we are going to Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios in Orlando, then we are going to Busch Gardens Tampa. To finish off the honeymoon and relax after all the amusement parks, we are staying in a chalet overlooking the mountains in Tennessee for two nights. We are so excited, and can't wait. We are going to have so much fun and are going to ride so many awesome coasters!

Are you kidding? Coaster riding was the last thing on my mind during my honeymoon. You can ride coasters on any vacation.

But if it's something you like to *do* on vacation, why wouldnt you? I cannot see myself spending a week and a half in Hawaii alone. I think I would get bored being there after a couple of days.

As for a actuall honeymoon, I have no idea. Perhaps there would be one park included. I'm almost certain that it will be in Europe, likely France, so it's entirely possible that a trip to DLP would be included.

I am getting married in August. I hope to get married at Conneaut Hotel. I have reservations, I just hope they open. I also hope to take a ride on the Blue Streak, with the wedding party after the wedding. We wanted to get married at Conneaut because of the food at Steak on the Lake! If you have not tried it, make it a point to if they open this year! I also wanted to get married there because I have been going there since I have been born in to 70s. I have been there at least once a year, every year they have been open.

Anyway for our honeymoon we are going to Knoebels, and stop at Hershey park and Williams Grove on the way for a few days. My girlfriend an I had such a great time last year at Knoebels, our first time there, when I asked her where she wanted to go for our honeymoon, she told me Knoebels. We are really into camping, and relaxing, it just seemed like the reight place for us to go.

OK, but if you want to go to an amusement park on your honeymoon, you better be darn sure your spouse really, really wants to go... nothing like getting into a fight on your honeymoon...

Why would I be kidding? We both LOVE rollercoasters. Isn't a honeymoon supposed to be a vacation where you both have fun? We can't imagine anything more fun than riding rollercoasters together. To us, we can have more fun together riding rollercoasters, than we could laying around on a beach for a week. We are coaster fanatics, and take a vacation together every year to ride coasters. Our honeymoon is the perfect opportunity to visit parks that we have been wanting to visit.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in one of the new Lighthouse Point cottages at Cedar Point in '01. It was actually her idea. We were having a great trip until she got sick. When we got home we found out it was morning sickness. hehe

That's just it... Stephanie does enjoy the parks, but it's less of a vacation for her, and really me too. Our whirlwind park trips hardly result in any rest.

If you get bored in Hawaii you're going the wrong places. Eight days on Kauai alone and we still didn't hit everything we wanted to do.

wow, this conversation is going exactly the direction of the other discussion i have had with non enthusiasts concerning coastering on a honeymoon. basically the two sides are this:

a honeymoon is supposed to be a time to relax and enjoy one another

or

a honeymoon is a time for us to have fun together...and how could we have more fun than riding coasters together!

but den brought up a GREAT point. if she doesn't want to do it and seems apathetic then....it's probably not a great idea.

Sorry, I just can't visualize walking around in theme park attire on my honeymoon, waiting in lines with smokers and wading through trash-filled queues. If that's what floats your boat, more power to ya. I'll take the Marriott resort at Key Largo any day for romance over a Six Flags.

While I have gotten my girlfriend to go on and appreciate rollercoasters - she has made it very clear- our wedding and honeymoon will in no way include rollercoasters. While I understand this, she can not stop me from proposing at a park or on a ride. hehehe

If she doesn't want your wedding or honeymoon to involve rollercoasters, I doubt her idea of a perfect proposal is on the first hill of Magnum. Remember, that's a story she'll want to tell all of her female friends and family over and over again.
