I met a guy named Adam last year and he has a goal of being the first person to get a 1000 laps in on MF. He has 920 laps in and hopes to reach 1000 early this year closing day at CP. I saw his name (adamforce) in the meeting calendar and it made me wonder how many people have there own little (coaster related) personal goals that they would like to accomplish? Some may say "Who Cares" but I know that a lot of people have their own goals and I was just wondering what they are? I really don't have a goal other than maybe getting a rollback on TTD.
#1 Steel: Sky Rush #1 Wood: Voyage #1Park: Holiday World
^usually. I drove from MN to Thunderhead to have it close an hour and a half after I got to the park due to rain. Tennessee Tornado was open all day though. Apparently TH was running too fast in the rain, hitting the brakes too hard, and they could not have that. But I got in some good rides before that.
Right now my goal is to ride Hades. *** Edited 4/29/2005 6:54:29 PM UTC by RavenTTD***
My goals change from year to year. This year my goal is to visit an area of the US I've never been to: the bible belt. I'll reach that goal this June when I visit SFOG, Wild Adventures, Myrtle Beach, Carowinds, Dollywood, Lake Winnie, and Visionland.
No stops at Camden, Moosh? Talk about 'Bible Belt'...
My coaster goal for the year is to ride Kingda Ka just to say I have, finally get to Florida since I've now been to California (one goal realized), and hopefully get back to some parks I haven't done in a while, as well as a couple new ones. I'm going to Camden before the summer is out, darn it!
My long term coaster goals include coasting in Japan, then Europe, then Africa and Aus-land. Along the way spending more time in Egypt not riding coasters, as well as way more time in Japan, Paris, and Italy not riding coasters, but eating and sightseeing.
I should hit 200 this year. I started out at 94 for Solace/Vegas week, and after that I'm up to 123. I won't get any new credits at Carowinds next month, but if I ho out enough kiddie credits, I'll have new credits everywhere I go this summer, including Myrtle Beach.
My goal for this summer is to ride some of the coasters that I haven't rode or have yet to ride in a few years such as Raging Bull, Superman: Ultimate Flight, Shivering Timbers, and Dominator. God I miss those rides.
Another thing I hope to do is isit one park I haven't been to yet, so we'll see how that goes for me. Not gonna be a big year for expanding my coaster count, but nonetheless, I would like it to be the most fun year. *** Edited 4/29/2005 10:30:22 PM UTC by TopThrillBobby***
Gas prices won't hurt too bad. 1900 miles in a car that gets 25 to the gallon. Split the cost between 2 people. We already have the season passes for PP, SF and CF so that cost is gone. Now all I need to work on is rooms and the tickets for the other parks.
oh and food! *** Edited 4/30/2005 3:37:18 AM UTC by dragonoffrost***
