To CoasterJunkie04 - I don't think 13 times a summer is too much.

But to CoasterDude27 - yes, EVERY day IS too much. Coaster enthusiast, or not, there is such a thing as being too excessive. Just my opinion.

I don't really think there is a such thing as "too much." I mean, if you really enjoy something, and it isn't doing you any bodily harm or anything, I say go for it!

It only too much if you get bored doing it.

For me, personally, I won't continue to go to a park if I find myself saying things like "why wait a half hour for this ride?" when I know it's a good ride, but I've just been there so much that it isn't worth waiting for because I've been on it so much. I've never had a season pass, this was when I was an employee at Cedar Point. I've decided not to go to CP this year (90% decided, anyway), because I'd rather not pay the $40 for the ticket just to walk around because I don't feel like waiting for hours and hours for coasters I've been on 75+ times, and since I live in FL, a season pass (the key to savings!) is out of the question. I'd rather wait and come back after a couple of years when it will be a little more changed and I'll need to "remember" the coasters again.

But you guys are right - if you're not bored, keep on coasting! :)

My home park is crap, so yes, I wouldn't go there too much. Only once in a while to check out if anything is being built.

I usually go to Knott's 1-2 times a week. That's about 30 - 35 times a year. I don't think THAT'S too many times. Everyday is too much, but 13 definitely isn't too much.

I have a feeling that I will be going to Kennywood too much this summer. Now that I am in college, I will have all of May off and I will know I will wake up and say "I feel like going to Kennywood." As long as my wallet permits, I'm not going to stop. :)

actually 1-2 times a week is 52+26=78 times a year since knotts is open all year around. id say 78 times is TOO MUCH because by then you are either bored of the rides or dont go for the rides(PROBABLY) or both.

I usually hit PGA every other Saturday when they're open for the season.

Oops, my math really sucked! I can't believe I'm a computer science major, taking Calculus and discrete mathematics courses. Boy do I feel dumb. Oh well, I suppose I do go about 78 times a year. However, when I do go, I only stay for a couple of hours, usually no more than 2. I only stay more than 2 hours if I'm with friends who don't have passes.

Ahhh, don't feel dumb. Cramming your head full of calculus and discrete kind of pushes out the other stuff like addition and subtraction. :) I've experienced the same thing.

Back on topic, the most I have ever been to a park in one year is probably SFGAm last year at only about 7. I'm not close enough to great parks to have that many visits.

Living in the eastern pa triangle(hershey,knoebels,dorney) I usually go somewhere at least once a week. People that say it's too much don't realize that for six months in the winter I don't go at all.

I bought the Florida Fun passes for Busch Gardens (BGT, SWF). The offer expires today (April 6th) and you must activate the vouchers by April 30th. So my daughter and I are going in April, May, July, and maybe again after that, and we have to drive 3.5 hours to get there. I also wondered if I would be bored, I don't think so. Going every day might be overkill, plus you need money for food. I'm sure some kids could get dropped off by their parents, ride all day, then get picked up (like day care) but that is the exception.
The first time you go on a coaster after having not rode it in a while, it's like a whole new ride. As long as you're having fun, that's what counts.

I've never owned a season pass, and I think I'd get bored with a park if I went more than about 15 times a summer. Of course, it depends a lot on whether or not you go by yourself or not. With company, I could go a LOT more than if I'm by myself. This past summer, I went to CP twice, once with my sister, and once by myself about a month later. The reason I went by myself is because MF was closed the day my sister and I went (The only day the whole summer, I think. :( ) Anyway, I stayed from about 9-4 the second time, and skipped Raptor and Mantis...two of my absolute favorite rides, because the wait was over an hour, and I didn't feel like standing in line for an hour by myself to ride rides I'd ridden a month earlier. Of course, in the morning, when I got a ride on MF, Mean Streak, Magnum and Gemini within an hour and a half...I was happy. If I'd had company, I'd have stayed till the park closed.

Ok...on second thought, if I had a season pass, I'd probably go a lot, just for short amounts of time. Maybe 4-5 hours at a time...ride 5-6 coasters and leave. Ride different ones the next week, then play around a bit...that could be a lot of fun. I'm going to have my first park season pass this year, for SFDL. It's two hours away, but I plan on hitting SFDL two or three times this year, plus SFNE, SFGAdv, and SFWoA...and that's worth $50. :)

SFEG for example can start to get boring after one day. Cedar Point on the other hand, would probably never get boring for me.
