Then I must have lost mine a long time ago at least 9 or 10 years ago...(its a long time for me). I havn't lost anything since my watch in Geauga Lake. I almost lost my souvieniers in a locker at Kennywood because it wouldn't open with the key. I did manage to get them out, but I was just about to talk to the Staff member there.
GoliathKills said: You live six hours away, and haven't gone "grind your soul"? YOU NEED TO GET UP AND GO. I might be a little bit jaded as I drive 9 hours to go to Marine World, but it's definately worth it for Kennywood.
6 hours is something I am used to. That is NOTHING! Try 12-13 hour drives to Florida and Arkansas (the latter being a hellish overnight drive) ;-)
Kennywood is MORE than worth any drive time. Luckily it's only 4 hours from me.
I DID, however, say this year I was going to fly more (if it was anything over 6-7 hours) but I keep finding myself taking these long road trips. lol.
I got a 2100+ mile 17 day trip coming soon with a Kennywood to Dollywood drive thrown in there. Most of my coworkers are calling me nuts. I am telling them this is nothing compared to the three week family trips from NJ to Colorado and back I used to take as a kid.
I have an 8 day trip coming up (IN/IL/Iowa/MN/WI that is going to be exhausting but it helps to have a LOT of loud music, much sleep (which is important) and good company. :-) Nowadays I am more into "pacing" myself.
17 day road trip Dragon? WOW! You will have to do a TR on that one. ;-)
15 days, Grind Your Soul? Sweet! Just stay away from the highly caffeinated drinks like Red Bull. They will keep you awake for a while but you will feel like crap (and crash HARD) before long. ;-) Plus they taste like crap anyway (much like Jolt!) Eww.

That's kind of the idea... a Dollywood day could turn into a Gatlinburg/Smoky Mountain non coaster day. Thinking the day we drive down from Pittsburgh. Then 2 days at Dollywood. To get this back on topic... Any non coaster rides that are do not miss at Kennywood? We don't care about wetness or intensity levels. I'll give anything a shot once....ONCE! *** Edited 7/21/2005 5:12:53 PM UTC by dragonoffrost***
