What will be your key coasters to hit for 2001?

Wednesday, October 11, 2000 9:54 AM
This is the short version of my list :)

New coasters:
Kennywood: Phantom's Revenge
King's Dominion: Hypersonic XLC
Dorney Park: Talon
Six Flags Great Adventure: Superman(?)-themed B&M hyper

Recent coasters I haven't gotten to yet:

Six Flags New England -- Superman:Ride of Steel
Lake Compounce: Boulderdash
King's Island: Son of Beast
Hershey Park: Lightning Racer

I'm just going to list the parks I plan on doing next year because I always try to do all the coasters:

Never been to but plan on going:
Dorney Park (Coaster Con XXIV)
Hershey Park (Coaster Con XXIV)
Williams Grove (Coaster Con XXIV)

Been to and plan on going again:
Holiday World (during Stark Raven Mad)
Michigan's Adventure
SFGAm (home park)

Of course, all this depends on that necessary evil called "money". At least the SF season pass will help.

I'm planning on renewing our SF season passes also, so we'll definitely hit SFO a couple of times. My wife really enjoyed Stark Raven Mad, so I think we're going to make that an annual trip.

As for new coasters:
- The new one (or two) at SFGAm
- Phantom's Revenge
- The new one at SFKK (IF they put one in)

I'd REALLY like to ride the new hyper at SFGAdv, but we probably won't be able to travel as much next year.

There's no speed limit on the highway to hell.

Well, since things are looking like I will be back in college (grad school) come fall of 2001, and be poor for the next three years, I'm going to try and go all out between now and then. Targeted parks are:

CP & SFO - This weekend
BGT - Sometime b4 christmas maybe
BGT, IOA, USF, SWO - March 2001
Holiday World - SRM May 2001
(possibily SFStL at that time too)
Carowinds - May/June 2001
HersheyPark - June 2001 (coaster con)
SFGAm - July 2001 (when I go to see mom&pop =])
BGW, SFA, PKD, Knobels - Summer 2001 (Whenever I can talk WildOne and/or SFAGuy to go :))

I would also like to go to TimbersFest, but unless some people from 'inside the beltway' decide to posse up and roll, it aint gonna happen.

Texas looks good to me for next year. A CCI woodie, a Giovanola hyper, (new for '01) and the rest that Texas has to offer, Texas Giant, Taz's Tornado, Mr. Freeze, and Superman:KC look good too. Besides, one 6 Flags pass will get you into 3 parks!

If not Texas, Florida or Pennsylvania have a lot to offer too.

Gotta ride 'em all! *** This post was edited by Soggy on 10/11/2000. ***

Anytime Hostyl, anytime. I hope to hit Kennywood, BGW, SFO and a few California parks next year. Not sure as to which ones, just some of them.
Six Flags America IS a Six Flags park!
Wednesday, October 11, 2000 1:52 PM
Yikes, everyone seems to have plans already!

I was thinking along the lines of a few Pennsylvania parks I've been dying to get to, but haven't. Namely Kennywood, Dorney Park, and Knoebels. I'll definitely get to PKD, BGW, and SFA, 2Hostyl. I'm also definitely getting to SFGAdv's new hyper. SFDL, SFNE, and LC may also be plans....but those three are very tenative.

Of course I'll change my plans if a new awesome coaster hasn't been announced yet.

I plan on hitting the following 2000-2001 coasters for the first time next season.

Son of Beast (PKI)
Millenium Force (CP)
2 Mystery SFGAM coasters (umm SFGAM?)
Batman: Knight Flight (SFO)
The Villian (SFO)
Superman: UE (SFO)
WildFire (SDC)

You build it, I'll ride it

Well besides the Cedar Point Pass, I think I'm going to buy a Six Flags pass next year. That way I can go to SFO whenever I feel like it, and it will also get me into Great America when I go. On my trip to SFGAm, I'm planning on hitting the Timbers on the way back to Ohio. Other than that, I may try to make it to Kennywood or PKI.
Wednesday, October 11, 2000 4:43 PM
I'll be the first to say CALIFORNIA.

Where have you guys been? SFMM is definitely getting some kind of contraption, if not they still make huge improvements every year, and although the hyper at Knott's will be LATE 2001, it's still technically next year.

Mooreon: isnt ST a little, how shall I say, out of the way for a chi-town/ohio trip? In fact, about the only place "on the way" would be Indiana Beach (and Enchanted forrest, if it is evenstill open)
Wednesday, October 11, 2000 10:16 PM
Main coasters I plan on hitting next year will be my first time riding them, I hope. Here they are in no order.

For Steel:
1. Alpengiest(BGW)
2. Talon(DP)
3. Great Bear(HP)
4. Phantom's Revenge(Kennywood)
5. Batman: Knight Flight(SFO)
6. Superman: Ride of Steel(SFA)
7. Steel Force(DP)
8. Apollo's Chariot(BGW)
9. Hypersonic XLC(PKD)
10. Big Bad Wolf(BGW)

For Wood:
1. The Legend(HW)
2. Raven(HW)
3. Roar(SFA)
4. Wildcat(HP)
5. Villian(SFO)
6. Lightning Racer(HP)

That's all I can think of right now. I can't wait for next year to ride these coasters. :)

2Hostyl, even thought ST is out of the way, it is worth the detour. I noticed on your track record that you have not yet experienced The Timbers for yourself. You have been on a few CCI's, now it's time to ride the king of all coasters. ST is still my #1 favorite roller coaster, yes, I have been on MF, it is better than MF, IMO. If I remember correctly, you are too young to drive, so start cooking up a plan now to get yourself to MA next season.

Gotta ride 'em all!
