Saturday, 5/21/05. Indiana Beach. Very nice little park. 2 very good woodies. LoCoSuMo was so so. Steels were just ok. Would highly recommend this old style park. B+
Sunday, 5/22/05. Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom. Nice park. Not as bad as what I have heard. Good selection of coasters. The layout is a little rough, with that bridge in the middle. They should maybe add a second. They had the area between T2 and Twisted Twins blocked off, so you had to go all the way around the back section to get to all the rides. No lines on anything all day. Employees appeared happy. The gate opening was really cool too. Only thing missing was Mr. Six. B
Sunday, 5/22/05. Holiday World. Very nice little park. Fantastic woodies!! Very light crowd. Multiple rides on both coasters. Great place to take the kids. Not overwelming. Even though I did not use the waterpark, it looked top notched!! B+
Monday, 5/23/05. Kings Island. This park always impresses me. Another walk on ride day. It is nice that they let you stay on the rides if no one is in line. Got multiple rides on Beast and SOB. Beast is a little too tame with those . . . darn . . . trims. SOB was still rough. Italian Job was just ok. Nice addition. Delerium was a pleasant suprise! Good test for tomorrow's MaxAir. A-
Tuesday & Wednesday, 5/24-25/05. Cedar Point. This is still the best park I have been to. Light crowds both days. TTD was running superbly. MF was a little shakey on Wednesday. Twice while in line, it got stuck on the lift hill. Multiple rides on all the biggies. Wish they would let you stay on rides if no one is in line. Did 10 in a row on Raptor, but it took an hour going through the darn line. Got my exercise anyway. Even saw and said HI to Dick! He was watching Dragster. A both days
Over all a very productive trip. Got my coaster count up to over 150 now. Nice to do things like this by myself every once in a while. Nice not having to answer to anyone by me.
MLEM4S STILL rules
Good TR! I feel the same about SFKK, PKI, and CP (though not the best park I feel I've been to, I actually liked Knott's better).
