Difference between trip reports and park reviews?

What is the difference because I always see the same park reviews in that section but there's always different trip reports but the same park reviews in that section on the front page of the site. Who come no one ever write park reviews?

A trip report is about what happened and how the coasters rode on one particular day. A park review is a general description of a park and coasters, taking into account all visits.

Some of us do write reviews (myself included) but not after every visit (I don't even do that for EVERY park visit... but I will do it for some revisits).

As Den said, in a review I write a general overview of the park, and I will give a brief description of the coasters and select other attractions and rides (though I refuse to rate them!) However, I do not get into specific events that took place on a certain visit.

In a Trip Report I include what happened on that day...what we rode, how often we rode, where we ate, etc etc etc, along with any specific events relavent to that particular trip (such as how a certain coaster was running, getting sick on a hurl and twirl, etc etc etc).

Also, Trip Reports are posted instantly when you hit the "submit" key. Reviews are not... usually takes a while for them to be reviewed and accepted (or rejected... "oh the shame...")
