Tuesday, September 19, 2000 9:50 AM
I believe my days of park hoping is coming to an end this season. I'm going to give each park a brief summary on how I'd rate each. Not in any order just how I remember them.
1. Holiday World- Clean, Friendly, lots of ride time
2. Knoebels- Best food, Cheap food, several great flat rides, visited many times.
3. Great Escape- Not bad for a SF owned park, Comet closes early :(
4. SFNE- Rainy day here. One of my favorite SF's
5. SFO- Rainy day again. 2 good coasters
6. SFGAdv. Rain again. Another good SF park.
7. Wyandot- Small but not bad needs more rides
8. SFKK- Went on Holiday most many shops were closed
9. SFA-Can't handle crowds well. Went twice. 1 good visit 1 bad
10. PKD- great park! Possible to get rerides on wood. Bad food, went several times
11. PKI- Fun but long lines. Went twice
12. BGW- Long waits but fun coasters, great food, no wood, Went twice
13. Hersheypark- great park all around. Can get crowed, went may times
14. Dorney- Average park needs a new woodie, went 3 times
15. Cedar Point- Good Food, long lines, good coasters
15. Camden Park- Run down. Nothing special
16. Williams Grove- Run down. nothing spetacular
17. Kennywood- 3 visits Good food, Good wood.
18. Idlewild- Fun little park. Overpriced enterance fee.
19. Lake Compounce- Small, Cheap food,Needs more flat rides
20. Quassy- Small park, Afordable fun, no wood
21. Lakemont Park- Cheap fun, no trees, carnival feel
22. Blands Park- Small, Cheap, no wood
23. Coney Island, NYC- Carnival feel, can be expensive,short lines

In all I'd say my top 5 parks of the year are, Holiday World, Knoebels, Kennywood, Hershey, and Idlewild

Glad to see at least one other person enjoyed PKD.

Age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill.

Cedar Point may have long lines but they move reletivly fast.

Only A Few More Weeks To Go Full Force. At The One and Only Cedar Point.

I worked lots of hours in the spring 6 and 7 days a week 10 to 12 hours a day. Then late May I got laid off and it's been off to parks ever since. A few season passes go a long way. Paramount, Six Flags, Dorney, and Hershey to be exact.

I didn't think the lines moved very fast at CP. In fact they were worse than PKI's when I went.
