my entire summer has been spent down here working at disney world so i havent really did much park visiting except for the disney parks.

Saturday, August 7, 2004 7:26 PM
April - PKI, SFKK(Both personal first timers)

May - Uhh. . . .

June/July - 2 trips to SFGAm (Personal first time)

August - Cedar point (I leave tomorrow and will be there on Monday the 9th). I also have plans to hit up Holiday world (first time) after I move back to Lexington next week for school.

Great summer. I can't believe I had been driving to St. Louis when Chi town is only about a half hour farther.

March - SFOG (First Time)

April - SFKK, PKI

May - PKI

June - PKI (x2), Castles-N-Coasters (First Time)

July - SFKK

August - Holiday World (First Time)

MIGHT do Stricker's Grove tomorrow, but it's unlikely. Probably gonna be at PKI later this year, too. We'll just have to see how the rest of this year shapes up.

Last summer... SFGAm, SFKK, SFStL, PKI, HW, IB, and IoA.

Not too bad for someone who missed the coaster experience from '86 to '02. I'm playing catch-up now :)

Let's see, the parks are Knott's, SFMM, Pacific Park, Belmont Park, Adventure City, Scandia, Sea World SD, Buffalo Bill's, Stratosphere, Adventure Dome, Speed: the ride, Manhattan Express, Cliff's, Frontier City, SFStL, Holiday World, Indiana Beach.

Will be in the Dells tomorrow so we'll hit Timber Falls for sure and maybe Mt. Olympus. I'll be at SFGAm in about a week and a half. Possibly PPP in the fall.

I got to do alot more than I thought I'd be able to do. I think the highlight was ERT on X after Solace.

But are you going to the state fair?:)

I wish I could go, but the only days I have off during fair week are my CP and GL first time trips, so oh well...

But next year, Tina, we're goin to the Fair!

Sunday, August 8, 2004 6:24 AM
Nope, not going this year.

I would like to get to PKI once this year too, but college is rapidly approaching. *** Edited 8/8/2004 4:04:36 PM UTC by Bakeman***

Thanks to RideWorld hosting the East Coast Trek, I've hit a bunch of parks this year...most that I have never been to. All rights, lets see here:

January - DisneyWorld (all 4 parks), IOA, Sea World and BGT

May - Cedar Point and Kings Island

June - Cedar Point, Kings Island, Wyondot Lake, Kennywood, Six Flags America, Six Flags Great Adventure, Quasy, Lake Compounce, Six Flags New England, Great Escape, Dorney Park, Hershey, Knoebels, DisneyWorld (all 4 parks) and Universal Studios

July - Cedar Point, Kings Island

Aug. - Cedar Point, Kings Island, Kennywood, Knoebels

Sept. - Dollywood (will be attending the RW event there).

Not to bad of a year, especially considering the year before I only went to 3 differnt parks the whole summer. *** Edited 8/8/2004 10:59:18 PM UTC by Mark Burleson***

I thought I was doing pretty good until I read about all the parks everyone else has gone to, but I guess I'm still doing fairly well considering my wife isn't a coaster fan at all.

March-SFOT (First time)

April-SFNO (First time), PKI (First time)



July-PKI, Adventureland (First time), CP (First time)


Out of all the parks I love Cedar Point the best and my 2 favorite roller coasters that I have ridden this year are probably TTD and the Beast. *** Edited 8/8/2004 6:49:22 PM UTC by S&SFAN***
