To all, Happy New Year! 2016 holds many great new coasters for us, including Cobra's Curse at BGT, Joker at SFDK, Lightning Rod at Dollywood, Mako at Sea World Orlando, Phobia Phear at Lake Compounce, Storm Chaser at Kentucky Kingdom, Total Mayhem at SFGAdv, and Valravn at Cedar Point (plus all those new ones in China that no one knows anything about). May all these rides be great, and may we all have a great year riding them!

It does look great, but I and most others here have no hope of going to Europe any time soon, so I ignored it. What can be done?

We do not know if Taron is scheduled to open in 2016, but I would think Summer 2016 is a good bet.

@bjames Flights to Europe are really not that expensive anymore and Germany for example rather cheap, especially when it comes to lodging, food and alcohol. When I see what some people spent on a Disneyworld vacation, for that amount you can do Europe easy a couple of weeks...(And with Phantasialand and Europa Park you have two of the best themed parks not to far away from each other)

That affordability is a very good point. I would urge anyone visiting Europe, especially for the first time, to limit your theme park time and schedule plenty of time to visit other areas. There is so much to see and experience that a European vacation can really be a magical thing.

I'd rather be in my boat with a drink on the rocks, than in the drink with a boat on the rocks.

For instance - Big Ben, Parliment. Big Ben, Parliment, and also Big Ben, Parliment.

London is rather expensive though, but I agree with Pete to limit theme park visits while in Europe. The entire continent is a huge themepark.

But, there is no expanding on THAT joke. The London eye didn't even exist yet :)
