I have to drive for 4 1/2 hours one way to get to Cedar Point. I just drove 3 hours to get to Stricker's Grove and on my way I started to feel like I was crazy, but I had a great time and it was definatly worth it. Anyway what was your longest drive just to ride some roller coasters only to head back home the same day?
19hrs straight to SFMM from Seattle (on my honeymoon, no less;)) My wife cried uncontrollably on Psyclone. Who could blame her though? She refused to ride Viper, but has since become a major enthusiast, and rode SD2K with me this summer. I am so proud....*sigh*:) ----------------- There is more to the world than rollercoasters. http://www.geocities.com/ethylsite
I live 15min from SFWoA and went the 2.5? hours to CP instead of the 15min to SFWoA. Also drove 1 hour each way just to ride the Blue Streak at Conneaut (and I wasn't dissapointed :) ) -----------------
Why is everyone listing the distance traveled in hours? Just curious. Time depends on how fast you drive, it has nothing to do with how far you went. We make the trip from FL to western PA every year. It's just shy of 900 miles. Depending on how determined we are to get there it can be done in as little as 12 hours (few rest stops, grab food at drive thru) or as many as 16 or 17 (many rest stops, stop for food, etc)
The hours are meaningless, the miles driven show how far you really went.
