what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Wow, that's a lot of parks to hit in one next weekend! ;) Way to throw Stricker's Grove in there. That's not an easy credit to get, considering their operating schedule.


I call Cedar Point my home park even though I live in the Chicago Suburbs.

You say that you are doing a thirteen park trip "next weekend"? Do you mean that you are going to hit all of those parks in two or three days, or do you mean that you are going to begin your trip next weekend?

Thirteen parks in two or three days is ,literally, absolutely insane. :)

Not to mention physically impossible absent a private jet. The Sandusky-Mason-Cincinatti part of the trip could conceivably be done in one day, assuming it begins with ERT. The 600 mile drive to St Louis could be done overnight. Allowing 4 hours at SF St Louis, 4 hours to drive to KC and 4 hours at WOF, those two parks could be done in one day. The Des Moines-Spirit Lake part could be done on the third day.

Minneapolis to Chicago is an 8 hour drive, so there would be no time to hit 2 parks in the Twin Cities plus the Dells, plus 2 parks in Chicago in the same day, so it is at least 5 days plus Indiana Beach. And that assumes 4 hours or less at CP, KI, SF StL, WOF, VF, and SF GAm as well as the smaller parks where 4 hours might be enough

I am starting the trip next weekend. The entire trip is going to take over a week to complete.

Canobie and Seabreeze are FANTASTIC classic parks. You're really in for a treat.

Seabreeze has some really sweet historic rides...and they've got attitude to boot! The tunnel on JackRabbit has some nice surprises... :)

Plus I've heard really great things about Wooden Warrior (aka Quassy Quicksilver).. ;)

Long live the cannonball! Canobie is loads of fun. Be sure to ride their log flume (my personal favorite log flume not concealed in a mountain) den of lost souls and their fully functional caterpillar


2017 Trips: WDW, Dollywood, Cedar Point, KI, SDC, BGW, BGT, SWO, Universal Orlando

Seabreeze is worth the trip for the quirky Bobsleds coaster alone.

Seabreeze is the only one I have been to on your list. It's definitely a nice little gem of a park. :)

I originally intended it to be a credit stop. I ended up spending about two hours there. Have fun!

If any of you guys are up at Canobie, let me know. I'd be thrilled to join you.

UNTAMED is icing on the cake of a great little park!
