How far have you gone to ride a coaster? I mean, the craziest thing you did.
One time, me and a friend left for Cedar Point from Toronto at 1 am(7-8 hours drive) Drove all the way to Cedar Point, spent the day at the park, until closing, and drove all the way back to Toronto from the park. All in one day!
i would fly on the space shuttle if i had to to travel to mars to ride a mars type roller coaster. then my stupid little life would be compleat ride the rolley coasters yea yea i love em i love em sooo soo much
I would also travel anywhere to ride coasters. As a matter of fact, I'm flying to Ohio from California to hit the Ohio parks (CP, SFWoA and PKI) so that's as far as I've been so far. I really want to travel to Europe and experience some of their great looking coasters. And also the historic locations, but that would be secondary. ;) Peace. :)
Flew from a trip to Israel, to Baltimore, to Phoenix in three days, then left Phoenix three days later and drove to orange county just to ride ghostrider. Left Orange county the next day and flew back to Baltiomre a day later. I was sick the whole time as well.:(
------------- Hi, my name is Eric, and I am a coaster junkie.
I drove all the way from Monterrey, Mexico to Kentucky kingdom, then to Pki, then to SFGadv, thna then SFO, CP, next SFGAm and then SFStlouis, then go back to home, it took 17 days to get the all trip, i will gonna do it again this year!!
Coaster Trips its the best.
I want to go to Europe to hit all england coaster and Goudriux!!
You got that right about Baltimore, Jeff. I am in and out of Baltimore often during the concert season and it's such a great place in relation to so many parks!
The farthest I've gone... Well, in August I will be crossing 13 time zones to ride some coasters!! (OK, so the trip isn't to ride coasters. But when I found out I have to go I made sure that I could for sure go to the major Japanese parks!)
I live in Australia and plan on flying to the US next year, to vist the major parks. I currently work in an theme park, and is looking at working in a US one while I'm over there. I'm eligible for a J1 visa, which would allow me to work in a theme park for up to 4months if I wanted to.
I have you all Beat, I took a trip to Florida in 1998 just so I could ride Montu(one of the best looking coasters at that time) and Oh yeah, did I mention, I travelled from England to ride it, Basiclly I travelled with some people I know really well, and when I realised there was a chance I could go with them, I sneaked along. I actually did need a holiday at that time, hadnt had one for 1-2 years before that, but when I realised it was an oppununity to ride Montu, I went for it;)
Also in 2 weeks, I will be making a 5-6 hr journey(there and back) just to go to BlackPool and visit BPB, however, I am staying in Blackpool for a couple of days, so its not all in 1 day.
I will drive any distance as long as I have the time and money. I would prefer to fly, as I flew to Texas last summer, and am flying to Virginia this summer, but if I had to drive to these places, I would. I am just lucky to be in a family that not only likes to vacation, but understands my passion for coasters.
