We have a cruise in the spring and a northern California trip in the fall where we will probably go to Yosemite.
Outside of that we will go to Busch Gardens Europe as we do every spring, and perhaps again with another couple for Halloween. I would like to go to Holiday World for Voyage finally, Dollywood and maybe even Canada's Wonderland. But I don't know how the cards will fall.
Oh, and we may get Sandcastle season passes again, and hit Kennywood a few evenings for $7!
This can easily be done: Get to Great America at opening and spend a few hours there (believe me, there ain't anything you'll want to ride more than once other than perhaps Top Gun) followed by a few hours in the afternoon at Bonfante Gardens, then close out the night at the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz.
Now that I'm living in eastern Pennsylvania, every park in PA is in my sights, plus Clementon, Morey's, SFGAdv, BGE, Hard Rock Park, Cypress Gardens, WDW, BGA, Wild Adventures, Lake Compounce, and SFNE, along with anything else along the way. I'm also hoping to make it up to the other New England parks for the first time and the Buffalo, NY area. And then there are the musts like Holiday World and Indiana Beach. Can't wait for next season!
Giving up the idea of being a passholder at DWood after this season, I hope to be able to convince my wife to take me to NY for 2 parks: Coney and Darien Lake with the promise of Shopping/NYC and Niagara Falls. If we drive, I'd like to take her to Knoebles and possibly Hershey. That'll definitely break the budget! Anyone predicting a passport being required for border crossing via US/Canada roads before summer '08?
Because of matters with my parents health, I currently don't travel much but I try to make at least one trip to a park outside of the local area. This year it will be Waldameer now that RF2 is opening.
Of course, I will make my usual two visits to Kennywood.
If gas were not so expensive, I would be interested in going to Knoebels. Maybe if my sister comes home for a while, we could head to Elysburg.

Well I know I will be going to Michigan's Adventure since I live only 45 minutes away. And, do several marathon rides on thunderhawk and ST. I will probably get a season pass that I can also use at Canadas wonderland. I haven't been there in years. And, might go to Cedar Point.
I will also head down to indiana beach to check out the steel hog, and, if I can brave the drive, head down to Holiday world for a few spins on the voyage. do both parks on a weekend.
I am also tempted to go to la Ronde in Montreal. But, doubt I will be able to afford to make that trip.
And, a possible trip to Great America near Chicago is also possible. But, might just stick to the Cedarfair parks, and save a ton of money on admission.
2) At least one trip to Splish Splash (I hope they get something new this year...last year brought no new attractions...except for the option to rent thier parking lot for functions on days they were closed)
3) Great Adventure (Depending upon how many freebees I can score)
4) Rye PLayland for WPLJ night
5) Possibly Dorney, if I can tag along on my school's Chorus performance.
6) Doubful but...Knoebels...since I never made it in 2007.
If I had the time and money I would like to do Holiday World, Indiana Beech, Kennywood and LegoLand. (Not in that order)
At least I don't have to go to Sesame Place anymore.
