The Off-Season Survival Thread

Postby ernierocker » Sat Nov 13, 2010 6:12 pm

For most of us, the end of October marks the end of the Theme Park season. So, how do you spend those cold months without coasters or theme parks?

What other hobbies do you have that help manage the withdraw? Post about them here!

Well, last off season, I spent the week at Mall of America and went to Nickelodeon Universe, Water Park of America, and the aquarium and such. But I guess I'm going to have to fight this off season out by doing nothing!

I usually find myself getting back into RCT2/No Limits. I also have my PS3 to keep my mind off of things (Black Ops and a bunch of upcoming new releases), focus on my yo-yoing I recently got back into doing (Currently working on a trick called the "Zipper" which is a reference to the carnival ride and one called "Roller Coaster), and just read the boards to see what's going on elsewhere. 5 months seems like a long time but I'm sure it will be over with rather soon...January-February seem to drag though.

I save money and make plans for the upcoming season.

I also work endlessly to try to make sure TPR's Park Index 2.0 launches before I die.

I re-allocate my travel budget to my bar-tab budget.

But then again, I live in Florida... our off season is pretty nice!

YouTube (yeah, I spend free time watching coaster videos) and I've just recently gotten into cars so that should keep me good for the off-season.
