July- Dorney Park - Hershey - Knoebels - Kennywood - Fun Spot (Angola IN) - Indiana Beach - Santa's Village (IL)
I would have to say that the funnest day was at SFMM (yes i did say that), just for the simple reason was getting my 6 yr old daughter on X first thing in the morning and it being her first major coaster with those type of elements. Next was CP and my son getting on Wicked Twister and TTD and the look on his face during the ascent and him putting his hands up on the way down.

Potential Superhero Celebration, a definite trip to CMania and a 50/50 chance at PPP and it's been a helluva year.
***Don't forget to throw in 5 trips to PCarowinds and 4 trips to SFoG (home parks scattered throughout the year)***

I can undisputedly say that I had the best time at Knoebels. The people were great. The lines were short. The rides were awesome. The food was delicious.
late June: Seabreeze
in 8 days: Great Escape
Labor Day Weekend (hopefully, but likely): Hershey
Any traditional park fan absolutely MUST get to Blackpool someday; it's that simple.
Schwarzkopf shuttle loops...The most possible fun in 36 seconds.
...Unless I get to feeling a little sick next Wednesday night...ok...reality Chad.
On Labor Day weekend were planning on hitting Geauga Lake...prayerfully!
This spring and summer I have been to Worlds of Fun, Adventureland, Valleyfair! & Camp Snoopy MoA (home parks), Mt Olympus, Timber Falls, Holiday World, Six Flags: St Louis, Indiana Beach, Dollywood, and PKI for Beastbuzz.
Edit: I probably would have made more trips by now, but I seem to be stuck going back to Timber Falls for some reason. *** Edited 8/7/2004 5:43:21 PM UTC by RavenTTD***
Geauga Lake a few trips including opening day. Most trips were just to the water park, still my least fav park.
Conneaut Lake: only twice thus far.
Waldameer: unfortunatly before Steel Dragon opened.
Kennywood: once so far, planning at least one more visit. I'm more impressed by this park each time I visit.
PKI: 7/24 & 7/25, my first visit since '86 or '87 when I was to short to ride any coasters.
So far we have to hit CP a few times and plan on KW at least one more time. Hope next year will be more productive.
