^Having been to both Canada's Wonderland and Cedar Point - I would say go to Cedar Point, it's a great place to visit and has an overall better coaster line up IMO.

Hope your visits go well, you'll get plenty of good advice at TPR.

7 days might be a bit much (I went for 5.5 days on my first visit in 2003 and that was more than enough), but there are plenty of other things to do like visiting some of the islands in Lake Erie, the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, and there are parks like Kennywood which for example is 3 hours drive away.

Definitely not a tourist!

Wow! I expected you to be an average American tourist but you've learnt a lot about our culture. I honestly can't imagine a world without cricket though I actually hate cricket. What's it like?

Thanks! It always kills me to look at these photos, then realize what the date today is. I can't believe it's coming up on 3 years since I went. I still talk to my friends down there, not too too often though but they really showed me how to live life down under. I can't wait to make it back.

Cricket was fun, we played a game at the school I attended...I think we were the 5th string team haha. We have baseball here, but cricket is something way different than other sports. Basketball, football, baseball, and hockey and racing dominate the US.

Thanks for bringing my report back up :)

It's so funny that you found this thread because of the school that I came to Australia apart of the exchange I was in! I just send you a message. It just goes to show you how huge TPR is.

I loved Australia and there isn't a day that goes by where I don't think about the family that hosted me, the friends I met, and the incredible adventures I had going to the Bunya Mountains, the Gold Coast, and all the Theme Parks.

I still think Scooby Doo's coaster was one of the most fun coasters I've ever been on. And Giant Drop is insane.
