Thinking about traveling to ride some other coaste

Wednesday, May 28, 2003 6:33 AM
I live in the suburbs of Cleveland. Have a pass for CP. I have been thinking about using some of my vacation to go visit some other parks to try their coasters. Michigan's Adv. is a must since I can use my CP pass. I was also thinking about heading east to Knoebles to ride the "Pheonix" and maybe PKI to try the "Beast" and "SOB" There are so many great coasters in this part of the country. If you have ridden any of these, is it worth the time and money to travel to ride these rides?

I've also am considering traveling to Knoebels for Pheonix Phun Phallfest. That seems like the perfect opportunity to ride the Pheonix and Twister. I just hope that I can get a car by then.

Well, in Ohio, the best of the bunch IMO is Screechin Eagle at LL, but it's opening is unknown.

I hate it when "cooaster enthusiasts" put down coasters. Why can't we just have fun on all of them?

I can't speak for PKI, but Phoenix is worth spontaneous 3 hour drives. It's worth driving 90 minutes out of your way, in the middle of a 7 hour drive, for "lunch" and a "few" rides.

I'd give Phoenix my first born if it asked. Well, okay. . . maybe not. But, I'd sure be thinking about it for a few days. ;)

If you head east, don't forget that your Cedar Fair season pass is also good at Dorney Park in Allentown, PA

Per Mapquest.....
Cleveland to Muskegon = 338 miles
Cleveland to Allentown = 400 miles

Talon is worth the trip to Dorney Park alone. Add in Steel Force, Laser and Thunderhawk and it'd be a crime to come as far as Knoebel's and not visit Dorney, especially as a CP passholder.

Is traveling worth it. Well, as a biased enthusiast - YES!

This is coming from a guy who drove 7 hours for an 8 hour day at CP this weekend...and didn't bother waiting for Dragster, but opted for the rest of the line-up. There will always be time for TTD later in the season.

Go for it and have fun in the process.

By yourself is fun a few times, but gets pretty stale pretty quick. Meeting other people at the parks can be fun, but taking coaster buddies with you is worth it by far.

I forgot all about Dorney park. I could hit 3 good parks by heading east. Maybe I could put off Michigan Adv. till next year, although I want to ride Shivering Timbers real bad.

If you go east, don't forget Hershey park also. You could circle around and hit that park on the way back.

Don't forget Conneaut Lake and Waldamere near Erie for the way home. Then again there is always the Altoona area with Lakemont and Delgrosso's less than a half hour apart. An easy afternoon stop for both parks and pretty cheap.

I guess the main thing to need to do now is decide on how long of a trip you want to take.

And if in Hershey, Williams Grove is just down the road. The Cyclone there still remains the scariest coaster I have ever been on.

A five day circuit of Pennsylvania can net eight parks without blinking an eye. Add a day, and you can hit Idlewild and Kennywood on the way home to Cleveland.

While I've never been to any of the parks you mentioned, if you are limited for time, I think, by looking in, that Lakemont may be the best choice for the most unique small park experience.

Warning: I do not think like the average person. My remarks have plenty of thought behind them. Take it for what it's worth, if you disagree, please, feel free to express it, but don't put me down because of it.

Dutch Wonderland is also near Hershey - they have the first CCI :) and a nice small park atmosphere.
