Dollywood in April
Coastercon in June
And of course lots of visits to my homepark SFOG
Sounds somewhat lucklustre compared to last year's list: Alton Towers, Blackpool Pleasure Beach (hmm, i notice a pattern there), Thorpe Park, all 4 Disney Parks in FL, both Universal parks in FL, BGT (sorry, BGA as it's now known), SWF, DCO and purely for credits (and i needed a mid-winter coaster fix, albeit a lame one), Adventure Island here in the UK.
Clearly I'm not fit to run this site.
Actually Jeff, you're not allowed to go anywhere because you must monitor/maintain this site 24/7! ;)
Anyway, I've got Vegas in June and most likely WDW in September. After that, it's all a crapshoot. I'll get up to Hershey and their new waterpark-ette sometime over the summer but not sure when. I'm actually considering *not* renewing the SF passes because I just dont think we'll be doing a lot of park-ing. But hell, it's only March (and the madness has begun) and everything's subject to change.
--who'd like to find time for revisits to KW, LC @ SFNE
If I'm REALLY lucky, I might make it to Kennywood. I'm thinking about "borrowing" my cousin's kid just so I have somebody to go with! :) If I go with him, it'll be the first time I've driven to Kennywood. I'm really nervous about getting there and back-- West Mifflin is really confusing to me.
It stinks to be (almost) broke. Somebody mentioned gas prices in another thread-- if they stay where they are (or heaven forbid, go up even more) just paying for the gas to go to the park is going to be rough. I live about 2-3 hours (or more) from any park, and none of the vehicles at my disposal get real good mileage, and I sure can't afford a new car right now. :P I'm hoping I'll get some more hours at work this summer, but if I get *too* many, then I won't have the time to go anywhere! :)
Anybody want to carpool? :)
Cats, books, and roller coasters-- three of the best G-rated, calorie-free pleasures in life!

In May, I'll definitely be going to Kings Island since it's my home park and I want to get on Firehawk. Also be taking a long weekend out to go to Hershey Park. At the end of the month hittin' up Indiana Beach and Six Flags Great America.
In June, taking a day trip to Beech Bend to try out the Kentucky Rumbler (I hear it's amazing!) Planning to get to Cedar Point as well to add Maverick.
July, I'll be in upstate New York for a family reunion. On the way back we're gonna make a pit stop at Six Flags Darien Lake (really wanna get a ride on Superman)
August or September, these are crazy months for me with teaching starting back up but I've never been to Kennywood and have been wanting to go for a long time. Will definitely try to get there to round out the season.
Of course, all of this is time and monetary substance permitting!
Can't wait for the '07 season to start!!
To start with, I'm heading out to Beech Bend(1) for Rumblefest April 21st, and doing an add on day at that famous park right up the road. Yep, you guessed it, DOLLYWOOD!(2)
I'm hoping to get up to Knoebels(3), for opening day, but it's looking like a family function will keep me from attending, but I will get there this season, Oh yes I will.
Memorial Day weekend will have me doing WNYCC's event at Dutch Wonderland(4), and Hersheypark(5).
Then it's looking kind of bare until July. I'll just borrow Rchard Bannisters schedule since I'm doing the same trip;
12/07 - Linnanmaki(6)
13/07 - Lauri's Park(7)
14/07 - Power Park(8)
15/07 - Sarkanniemi(9)
16/07 - Grona Lund(10), Parken Zoo(11)
17/07 - Tusenfryd(12)
18/07 - Liseberg(13)
19/07 - Farup Sommerland(14)
20/07 - Djurs Sommerland(15), Tivoli Friheden(16), Bakken(17)
21/07 - BonBon Land(18)
22/07 - Tivoli Gardens(19)
Hope you don't mind Richard.
I'm planning on hitting a couple of UK parks before the Scandi Trip too. Most notably;
Camelot(20) , and Blackpool(21)
Great Yarmouth PB(22) ,Joyland(23), & Pleasurewood Hills(24)
Maybe Paulton's, or Toverland, if I can figure out how to fit them in.
Labor Day is still up in the air, maybe Kennywood, with a sidetrip to Valleyfair. We'll see.
BTW, not a single SF park in the mix. How will I ever survive.
