Man, I love living in California! We are so lucky. :)

Yeah, but Florida usually seems to get everything first.

Florida gets everything before California?

Where's Florida's stand-up coaster? 4-D? Hyper? Rocket coaster? Super Inverted Boomerang? Arrow Multi-looper? Impulse? Intamin spillwater [aka Perilous Plunge]? Floorless Top-spin? SLC? Frisbee? Shall I go on?

Yes, I think I shall. We got Pirates, a B&M Inverted, a mine train, a Schwarzkopf looper, and Soaring Over California before you...heck, we got an entire Disneyland park before Florida.

Nice try, Squishy ;)

I'm not busting his chops, persay...I'm sure there are a few things Florida got before we did. I bet they got Cubans first ;)

Hey GoliathKills! Who is your govenor again? Why is he your govenor? I don't know...I guess it is because you live in California. At least Jessee was semi-eduucated. Just to let you know...Minnesota is better than both because we can go skiing in the winter...hang out on the beach in the summer. Its no ocean but we have a two awesome cities that kick but. No coaster capital though. And don't get me wrong I like both states, but I couldn't live either place.

"Our old govenor hopefully could beat up your govenor"

CoasterMN, they have a contest in Orange County, CA where its a surf contest in Huntington Beach in the morning, then a 3 hour drive to the mountains for a snowboarding contest in the afternoon. Bet you can't do that in MN. :)

LOL, I've made no secret of the fact that SoCal has the good rides.....we just have the better WEATHER...and traffic....;)

But Florida has YOU, Gator. That's gotta go in the "con" column ;)

You're right rollergator. You fellers do get the better weather. But California is just the same, we just don't have your destructive hurricanes. Darn! We're missing out! ;)

Hmmmm....hurricanes ARE pretty bad, but I live inland, and you get LOTS of warning. CA, you get earthquakes (NO warning), plus you get *incredibly* dry weather - Chapstick must stay in business on you guys, LOL. Add to that the wildfires that result, and they are NOT like fires elsewhere. Then you get mudslides TOO.

But then again, FL is stuck with me...and the wake-you-up-from-a-sound-sleep humidity from May thru September.

See you guys in January so I can check out ALL these new goodies....and the *older* goodies that should be open next time...(Flashback!)...:)
