Dollywood: I've been there several times through my life but not for about 3-4 years. The new wood coaster looks cool as does the new Mine themed one.
Six Flags Georgia: This seems to have the "biggest" coasters and a couple new ones I've never been on before like superman and goliath.
Holiday World: It seems to have an "ok" park and a nice waterpark which would be nice. The wood coasters look nice though.
Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom: After the accident I'm kinda standoffish but if it's worth it I might. Kind of would rather make the trip to Holiday World though.
Anyone who's been to any and all these with good advice of which ones could be better for a 1 day trip I'd appreciate it.
Also, I will be in Birmingham, AL the week before and was wondering if Visionland was worth a look? Thanks!
Then it comes down to small park vs. big park...if you want a small park then HW over Dollywood for sure!!! (cheaper tickets, free parking/soda, great water park) But if you want a big park, then of course SFOG.
If it was me, and I had never been on SFOG's new coasters....then I'd do SFOG, but it'll be more expensive than HW if you don't have a SF season pass.
Plus, if you're going to HW, you could stop in at Beech Bend, which would be on the way from Nashville, to pick up the Kentucky Rumbler credit.
By the way, I'm 20 and my brother is 14 and is familiar and likes large rides, he isn't even shaken up by Dragster, maybe a little, but gets on with no problem.
Personally I'm leaning for SFoG but HW is in the back of my mind because of the "world class" wood coasters they have and also the whole cost thing too. Any other tips would be appreciated.
If you have any interest in a water park, head to Holiday World. You probably won't be disappointed. You wallet certainly wont be.
The lines will probably be much shorter at HW than DW as i have been to both and in May it was crowded at Dollywood. Plus in my book they have two cant miss wooden coasters in Raven and Voyage, unfortunately i cant tell you how Thunderhead stacks up cause it was down the day i went. But either way you cant go wrong with either.
You seem to be more a high thrill kinda guy mentioning dragster above, and might have a serious love for the bigger coasters, so maybe that would lean you toward SFOG because of the quantity of the bigger rides, but dont forget quality in all of this.
I know everyone is just gonna say "it depends on many factors like weather, etc" but what are crowds like during the week at SFoG, as say compared to KI and CP. Like a general range for most rides. Any other tips of things to see or to skip would be apreciated. Also what are prices in the park like, parking, food, etc.
Also, since I live in Columbus, OH, I think I may make an evening trip to HW and hit up the coasters on my way back home. Tickets are dirt cheap after 4PM, I think, plus parking is free right? I hate solo trips personally, but Yoyage just looks to good to miss.
Lake Winnie loosened their age restrictions this year by allowing unaccompanied visitors at age 18 instead of 21 which is good news for college age visitors. *** Edited 7/3/2007 7:47:13 PM UTC by Arthur Bahl***
