More exciting than Tiger's baseball....

Thursday, April 18, 2002 5:49 AM

Since I teach and coach girls JV softball near Toledo, making a trip to PKI or Virginia is out of the question until Memorial weekend. I am TOO excited about this season because I have a lot of time during this summer to ride like a banshee and enjoy parks I have never visited. In fact, RCT and me have been best friends, 3 to 4 hours a week since February. I'm 34 years old and have a serious addiction (RCA: Hi Jeff, we love you!).

I want to read about my fellow CBuzzers opportunities for the summer.

1) What is the first park you have (or will) visit this year?

2) What are your special plans, like multi park/coaster trips this season?

3) What is the ride or park that most excites you for the summer?

Answer quick and to the point, so I can read about your plans.

1) SFWoA, May 5th, process Season Pass and ride for a few hours.

2) June: LeSourdsville Lake (Americana), PKI, SFKK, HW, Indiana Beach, Fun Spot (Angola, IN) all in 3 days. July: Kennywood, Hersheypark, Knoebel's, Idlewild, Lakemont, Waldemeer, SFDL, SFWoA in 5-6 days. August: SFGAm

3) SFGAm and Holiday World. I haven't been to SFGAm for 12 years and the Legend and Raven are too exciting to think about.

There's nothing like a woodie...

1. Cedar Point opening day

2. Pennsylvnia - Hershey and Williams Grove, Virginia - BGW and PKD, and i may end up going out to California and hit all the large parks in the state.

3.Im pretty stoked about getting to ride Lightning Racer, hypersonic and Wicked Twister.

And by the way Woody, where are you located in Toledo? Im In Millbury.

1) Cedar Point media day

2) Only one out-of-state trip planned this year, Hersheypark.

3) Of the coasters I'm going to ride, I'm looking forward to Great Bear the most. Of the ones I probably won't ride, X and Xcelerator.

April 26-29--Universal Orlando & IOA. Can't wait to ride DD!!!

Sometime this summer: Going to BGT and possibly Adventure Island as well. Haven't been to a water park since I was a youngin'! :)

September or October: Visiting my parents & sis up in Massachusetts and hopefully hitting SFNE or Canobie Lake. (Or both if I'm lucky!)

1. SFA...this Saturday, in fact!

2. Well, SFA is in fact a road trip for me. I will also hopefully be hitting Americana, PKI, SFKK, HW, and IB all in one swing (possibly SFStL) too. Not all these parks, but some.

3. I'm currently drooling over Legend and Raven also.

I get the feeling there's a conspiracy over at King's Island to remove anything that has "K" or "C" in its initials.

1] Coney was the first park I visited outside of my home state, California, on March 24, opening day.

2] I have three trips planned, SRM, PPP, and the Pacific Northwest. My SRM trip is 11 days and includes visits to Holiday World, Indiana Beach, Michigan's Adv, Americana, Kennywood, Waldameer, Conneaut, Del Grosso's, Lakemont, Idlewild, Wyandott, and the Indy Zoo. The 4 day PacNW trip in September will be Silverwood, Vancouver's Playland, and Puyallup Fair. PPP will also include a stop at Dorney Park.

3] Blue Streak, CLP; Screeching Eagle, Americana, and of course Indiana Beach's Lost Coaster of Sup--I mean LoCoSuMo!

2002 - the year of IB's LoCoSuMo!!

1. I am making a 12 hour drive up to Silverwood from Logan, Utah. After riding Ghostrider last year I have been sold on CCI and Tremors looks like it is well worth the drive.

2. I don't have any plans for multi-parks but I might get another trip to Vegas.

3. I'm most excited about Knott's and SFMM. Maybe I can make it there again this year. Only time and money will tell.

1) What is the first park you have (or will) visit this year?

Kennywood will be my 1st.

2) What are your special plans, like multi park/coaster trips this season?

I plan on many parks including, CP, PKI, SF:WoA, Kennywood, PKD, and SFGA. I am also hoping to get out to SFMM by the end of the year.

3) What is the ride or park that most excites you for the summer?

Id have to say X, but in the parks I am definitely making it to.... All of em.

Live on the edge and remember the Twist of Fate.

Thursday, April 18, 2002 8:27 AM

1) First park of the year was Seaworld-Orlando on my Florida trip in February. Hit SWO, BGT, IOA, & USF

2) Big trips this year include a trip down to SFStl and another to IB and CP plus the countless trips to SFGAm, Little A'Merrick'A, and Big Chiefs. Holiday World is a possibility but will take some work. Also, I may be going to NYC on business this year so I may finally hit Coney Island.

3) I am looking forward to (can I use the term Mamoosh?) LoCoSuMo, Wicked Twister, and Chiller with lapbars. IB and STStl are new to me parks and I am really looking forward to riding some new steel and lumber.

1 - The first park I got to this year was Knott's back in February. I also got check out SFMM and Adventure City during that trip.

2 - I'll be making a couple PA runs sometime over the summer to get to Kennywood, Knoebel's, Dorney, Hershey, Idlewild, William's Grove, Del Grosso's, Lakemont, and CLP. One will be in early June, and include a trip to SFWoA with some family members. I'll also be taking a trip to the Pacific Northwest in September that is the same as Mamoosh's.

3 - I'm looking forward to getting out to SFNE this summer, getting back to The Legend, trips to IB (LoCoSuMo!), and finally making it back to Cedar Point after many, many moons.

1.) First park I hit this year was Magic Kingdom in mid January which was also a part of my Florida trip (MK, Epcot, MGM, IOA, Old Town, and SWO)

2.) Big Trips is this year is a trip to Worlds of Fun in May, a revisit to Cedar Point in June, a week long trip to Dorney, Hershey, Knobels, and Kennywood, and I'm hoping to squeeze Michigan's Adventure in some day when I'm not working at Valleyfair.

3.) I'd say I'm most looking forward to Knobels' wooden coaster and Talon the most. Reason being is that I think those coasters have the most potential to suprise me by being awesome whereas I know Phantom's Revenge, Steel Force, and Mamba are all going to be great rides.

1. Most likely PKI on May 4...maybe CP opening day if the hubby gets knocked out of his drag racng class early

2. Possible big trip might be to NJ or south of Philly (more drag racing), with a promis from the hubby to let me hit some parks in PA and NJ.

3. I'm most excited about getting the chance to ride ANY new coasters, and meeting some coaster enthusiasts at Timbersfest and Coastermania

I'd rather die living than live like I'm dead

1) Cedar point or Michigan's Adventure depending if my dads' work is going to CP this year. If they are we get in for $20 something. If not I'll get there some time in May or first week in June.

2) Cedar Point and Michigan's Adventure for the normal trips. Holiday for the first time on June 15 or 16th, then our big trip is going to be Six Flags over Georga for SUF, then on to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, then in no certain order the orlando parks, Sea World/Universial and Islands of Adventure/and Disney. Plus some time in August we are geting to Six Flags Great America for the first time.

3) Superman Ultimate Flight(to see if it's better than X-Flight), IOA coasters, Montu and Kumba, and Wicked Twister(because it is at the park I started going to before I was an enthusiast).

Hope to see someone at any of these parks.

The Flordia/Georgia vacation is from July 22 till approximatly August 3rd.

1. Myrtle Beach Pavilion, two weeks ago.

2. SFKK and PKI in about a month, but I go to them every year. CP from June - September. (I'm a sweep.)

3. Park: Definitely PKI. My sister, who lives in Arizona, is coming back and going with me. Coaster: Probably FOF with lapbars and the brakeless Beast, cause I haven't ridden either one.
