Stepping back.... into Holiday World

Even though I don't know you Shaggy (but have read plenty of your previous posts), that still must have taken some guts to admit what happened to you financially as being a rabid enthusiast. I hope everything works out.

I think that's the one part of coaster riding/park visiting that a lot of people simply put out of their minds. With practically everyone having access to the internet, you could replace that [old?] MTV News phrase from "You hear it first" to "You read about it and knew about it eight months before everyone else did.":) And I think this is where people can get out of control. They start thinking about every new coaster/ride and how they're going to ride all of them in one season.

Last year wasn't bad, but this year there were lots of "temptations." El Toro, Flying Turns (bumped to next year obviously), Tatsu, Voyage, Italian Job (KD), Kentucky Rumbler, two Goliaths and overseas there was a lot of action as well like Black Mamba. And if flat rides were your thing (like they are for me) there were the new Screaming Swings and the first American Topple Tower.

I guess the lesson to be learned for any enthusiast is to take it easy and maybe spread out the rides over the season, or wait until next year. With most big attractions, you don't have to worry about them leaving anytime soon (unless they're at a Six Flags).

p.s. for simplicity's sake, "nevertheless" and "nonetheless" don't require any hyphens. It's cool to see someone else use "nevertheless" as it has become a favorte word of mine at times. *** Edited 8/18/2006 5:56:28 PM UTC by Intamin Fan***

Now THAT was a great TR, Shaggy.

Usually I don't read them thoroughly, I just scan for any highlights, but I read every word quite intently.

Thanks for sharing.


I like to ride woodies.
