Summer Wrap Up

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
My least favorite park for 2000 is .. SFA, Dorney coming in second to last

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.
