Dorney, Hershey, Great Adventure, Morey's Piers, Gillian's Wonderland Pier, Playland's Castaway Cove. Maybe a trip to Knoebels as well. Hopefully in 2008 I'll be able to get to some parks more than 2 - 2 1/2 hours away.
Well, this will probably be the first year in a very long time I visit Six Flags over Georgia just once. I'll be down in Florida for the summer, so I plan on going to USF/IOA as often as I can. At the end of the summer, I hope to get up to Cedar Point, and if I do, possible Holiday World and Kings Island. Busch Gardens Europe would be nice, but I just don't think I have the time.
- Florida: Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa area parks (just got back from this trip). - Kemah Boardwalk and hopefully some other Texas parks, but Boardwalk Bullet is my top priority for this season. - Busch Gardens Europe - Holiday World for HoliWood Nights - Knoebels for PPP (if not sooner) - Valleyfair
Hopefully several others as well, but those are my musts for 2007.
Besides that one home park, Kings Island, I plan to visit Cedar Point multiple times, as well as SFKK, Holiday World, and Geauga Lake at least once. And at least an outing at Stricker's Grove, of course.
In spring/early summer I'm hoping to do the Virginia/DC area with Six Flags America, Kings Dominion, and, if Griffon is open, Busch Gardens Europe. That trip I'm doing in part because I'd like to see a Nationals game at RFK Stadium.
I'd really like to add Kennywood and Conneaut Lake to the roster, too.
Oh yeah, I forgot about Dollywood. I have a season pass from my visit in December, so i better use it. :)
Other places I'd especially like to get to/back to this year would be: Ghost Town in the Sky Cedar Point (haven't been back since Dragster) Kings Island Conneaut Lake Kennywood Stricker's Grove Camden Hershey Lakemont Idlewild Dutch Wonderland Lake Compounce SFNE Silverwood
With Renegade opening at ValleyFair, we thought it was a good year to buy season passes. MaxxPasses were only $10 more, so seemed like a great deal. We're planning on hitting the CedarFair parks during a 3-week road trip starting in mid-August to Labor day before the kids go back to school. Still plotting out the route but looks likes we'll go to MiA, Cedar Point, Geuga Lake, CW, Dorney, KD, Carowinds, KI, then back to MN. Hopefully squeeze in BGE when we're out that way. That's if the family can tolerate each other in the car for three weeks without turning it into another National Lampoon's family vacation. Then hopefully hit WoF in October for a Halloween weekend.
Kings Island: as much as possible since it's my home park.
Cedar Point: I'm planing on going for coaster mania and another time in early august. By the way, can anyone tell me how long it takes for a coaster buzz membership card to come? I only joined the club about a month ago so I'm not complaining, just curious.
I'd like to make it to Geauga lake when my family goes to Cleveland.
Hopefully I can throw in a trip to Holiday World also. *** Edited 3/1/2007 2:37:09 AM UTC by J Trick***
I'll have new "home" parks beginning March 26, after the move from so-cal to Florida. So they'll be plenty to get familiar with all summer long. However, I'm still going to the opening of Mystery Mine in April, Holiwood Nights in May, and Busch Gardens Europe in June.
It's going to be such a different feeling having so many great parks within driving (or a short flight) distance. So different than being stuck with SFMM. ;)
Canada's Wonderland (Cedar Fair Maxx Pass) - 40 mins away depending on horrible T.O traffic.
Geauga Lake - 4.5 Hours away
Cedar Point - 5/6 Hours away
Darien Lake - 1.5 Hours away
La Ronde - 6.5/7 Hours away
Six Flags Great Adventure - 8/9 Hours away
Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom - 9 Hours away
Kings Island - 8 Hours away
Kings Dominion/BGE/Six Flags America - 9-11 Hours away
And thats about it, but in reality I might only hit up 4 of them depending on money and other things. Definately wanna use my Maxx pass at more then just CW tho, and now that i can't get a SF pass since darien isnt owned by sf anymore that just sucks but I could try to grab one at a park if Iamm actually going to come back to other SF parks.
