What should I do?

Friday, September 29, 2000 2:04 PM
This winter, i'm thinking about going to either Californa or Florida. I want to know if i go to either state, which one should I pick? If i go to Californa, i'll probally stay around the L.A area. If i go to Florida the Orlando area. Which do you think would be better???

Tough choice. SoCal has Goliath, S:TE, Riddler's Revenge, and Ghostrider, just to name a few of my favorites. I've never been to Gator Alley, but would like to some day!

Gotta ride 'em all!

Florida of course.

Disney's Cal. Adventure is not due to open until sometime in February, that is if they stay on their new schedule. Besides, if the polar ice caps melt, Florida might be under water soon. :)

Seriously though, Florida has the WDW Resort with Magic Kingdom, Epcot, MGM, and Animal Kingdom. Universal, IOA and Sea World are also in Orlando. And about 80 miles to the west coast is BGTampa, home of Montu.

No matter what you here, IOA is UNDERRATED, it is the perfect blend of theming/ultra super fantastic thrillrides.

But i went there on what all the ops described as the lowest attendance day EVER at IOA, so i might be biased, 63 rides on the dragons...

Gotta co to CA. If you want themeing just go to Knott's Berry Farm or disneyland. The best park in the world is right there being SFMM! Your gonna want to spend probibly 2 days there to ride all the coasters and rides you want.

Definetely Florida,
9 themeparks
16 coasters
6 waterparks

You would need at least 2 weeks to do everything here.

Okay thanks everyone for your help. I'll try to decide soon. But it seems pretty even. Oh well.

Heck with it - do both! What's money for anyway but to ride, ride and ride some more.

I would travel to Florida.....in addition to everything backseat told you, there is also the Scorpion, Python (Arrow!) and Kumba at BG.

Thanks everyone for your help. I'm leaning toward Florida, but i'm still not sure.

I'd go to FL I mean think about it. Deuling Dragons, The Hulk, Gwazi, Montu, Kranken, and Kumba. Those are some World-class rides!

Blink, I'm sorry if I make this even harder, but having just been to FL this year and going back in March of next year, I have to say....GOTO CALI! IOA is wonderful for sights, but for flat out rides, Cali is the better bet. Goliath, Ghostrider and Riddler's have no equals residing in FL, not to mention S:TE. Unless for course your cup of tea is steel loopers. Florida has a lock one those.
