Weekend coaster trips in Midwest.

Wednesday, June 18, 2003 12:22 PM
Well, working two jobs, and not having anything major thing to spend my money on in the next two years, I would love to take a short weekend vacation to a park in the midwest so that I would not have to take off any work (Can't leave Friday, can't come back Monday, must leave Saturday and return Sunday). So, what parks in the midwest are relatively close to airports so there is no need to rent a car and preferably one of the cities on this map because I need a direct flight for the most park time and unfortunately, the only airline that serves the midwest out of Milwaukee is Midwest Airlines which is somewhat pricey. http://www1.midwestexpress.com/travelPlanning/where.asp The map is the second one or the "Midwest connect" map, however there are some cities in the Midwest Airlines map that are in the Midwest (I would go further, but I really don't want much more than a 2 hour flight because like I said, it's getting there one day and coming back the next.) What do you suggest?

Edit: I know SFKK is right next to the Louisville airport, I just don't know if SFKK is worth the at least $350 for this trip. And I do have a Six Flags season pass so a Six Flags park would be a plus.

I wouldn't recommend even half of that $350 to hit SFKK. While it has a couple worthwhile (Thunder Run and Chang), I would only hit it on the way somewhere else (like Holiday World).

Of everything I see on that second map, I would suggest Kennywood from Pittsburgh, or PCW from Toronto.
I don't know about transport to and from airports, but I'm sure you could find something on their websites.

On a different note, don't forget that ATA also flies out of Milwaukee. Right now on their site (www.ata.com) they have $99 each way to Dallas. SFoT is just a couple of miles south of the airport.

Good luck!

Thanks for the tip on ATA, however, ATA only has 1 direct flight out of Milwaukee and that is to Chicago, which ultimately means layover. I've flown ATA on 3 different occasions as well, and, while their fares are great, I'm really not a big fan of the airline, I don't mind paying a little more for a little more comfort.

Edit: I had seriously considered Pittsburg/Kennywood as well and in that case I would be able to take US Airways if they were cheaper, however, I've flown into Pittsburg before (for a layover) and the airport seemed to be smack dab in the city (rare for an airport to be there.) I would assume there aren't many airport transfers to outside the city. Is Kennywood somewhere near the Pittsburg Airport?

You can hit Muskegon Airport for Mich Adv (a CF park) and one of the most rediculous/increadble woodies on the planet: Shivering Timbers.
