Midwest Coasters

Thursday, March 6, 2003 12:59 PM
Hey, my spring break starts on the 18th of April and ends on the 27th, I live in SouthernWisconsin and I was wondering what parks will be open that are in driving distance and worth the hike. Thanks in Advance...

I started making a list of possible parks.. Worlds of Fun, Dollywood, Adventureland USA, S.F. Frontier City, Fun Spot, Silver Dollar City... Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

I checked most of them: I know Silver Dollar City, Dollywood, and Adventurland USA should be open, however I did have trouble opening Fronitier City's schedule page.

Worlds of Fun and SDC will both be open. SFStl should be open. I do know that Celebration City will not be open, it opens on May 1. How far are you willing to go?

I have already been to SF St.Louis, KK, and WOA. I am willing to drive up to around 800 miles away from home (Milwaukee).

Ever Been to PKI? I think that would be a great visit for you to get on about 10 good coasters and great flat rides. Your sig throws me off a little, but I think PKI is within 800 miles.

If you're going to do the Oklahoma parks, you may be able to head up to Colorado for a couple of pretty good woodies.

Silver Dollar City is more of a summer/fall park... but my opinion is changing... WILDFIRE

Here is our tentative schedule for the same time period. We're leaving from Chicago, so the trip would only be a litttle bit longer for you.

Thursday 4/17 Drive to Hershey, PA

Friday 4/18 Hersheypark

Saturday 4/19 SFA

Sunday 4/20 PKD

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 4/21-23 BGW & Colonial Williamburg

Thursday 4/24 SFGAdv

Friday 4/25 SFNE

Saturday 4/26 Knoebels or Kennywood

Sunday 4/27 Drive home

Yeah, it's a lot of driving, but IMO worth it. The hard part is finding parks that are open weekdays during the last week of April. Have a great time wherever you go.
