I'm old enough now to know that until the plane tickets are booked, there's no way to guarantee what if anything I'll be doing. I didn't plan to get a Six Flags pass for the year, and instead I'll wind up riding at least 5 of the 6 Justice Leagues in the US. Right now:
-WDW minus Magic Kingdom (that's on the books) -Cedar Point -Canada's Wonderland -Six Flags Great America -Kennywood -Kentucky Kingdom -Howard's Apple Farm and Sluggers and Putters for the credz
If everything goes kinda like I expect, then there won't be a single permanent roller coaster for a 250 mile radius that I haven't been on. Most of the portable ones too.
I'll be in New England come Memorial Day but aside from SFNE, I have nothing definite down. Maybe Canobie since it's been at least 10 years since I went there last - maybe more like 12-13. Or Edaville since I never went. Or Quassy. Not Compounce though. That place sucks now.
I am defintely hoping to be in Iowa enough to go to Adventureland and the State Fair, but that's also true of a lot of other localities.
Cedar Point based trip 1: Carowinds (since I always need a layover and Charlotte is always the one I get...) 2: Cedar Point (hopefully for Coastermania) 3: Kennywood (Steel Curtain!) Possibly 4: SF GA if I take my 2nd layover in Atlanta. The first 3 I am firm on though. I go to CP every year so Im very confident in this.
Hopefully a CA based trip (ideally for a WCB) Great America, Discovery Kingdom, SFMM and KBF Really depends on if WCB happens and if I can make it, I will try to leave Sept open. If there is none/it doesnt work out I still plan on trying to make this happen.
If CA doesnt work, I'll try to get to Dollywood, or perhaps whenever I visit NJ I'll swing by Hershey. Surely Busch Gardens will happen at least one, and I'll likely hit the funspots. We take multiple trips to Tampa/St Pete and Orlando a year and sometimes I am solo for a day so it only makes sense
Top 10 Steel: Steel Vengeance, Wicked Cyclone, Millennium Force, Storm Chaser, Skyrush, I305, Maverick, Lightning Run, Superman (SFNE), Kumba Top 10 Wood: Voyage, Phoenix, El Toro, Boulder Dash, Mystic Timbers, Lightning Racer, Grizzly (KD), Legend, Raven, Beast 2018 Parks: (new)Busch Gardens Tampa, Kings Island, Kentucky Kingdom, Holiday World, Cedar Point, Kennywood, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure
Next year is going to be a slow year for me since I want to save for the Japan trip in 2020. All in I still think I'm going to enjoy it:
- Efteling (every year) - Toverland (re-rides on Fenix) - Phantasialand (they are going to open a new coaster I've heard) - Port Aventura (the only big new park on the horizon) - Walibi Holland (RMC, yeah!) - Bobbejaanland (Gerstlauer, yeah....)
Other than that, we'll see. Probably going to pick up a little park here or there. Then again, with the first four/five parks I've got enough quality rides.
Anything can happen, but so far we have flights booked where we plan to visit:
- Disney World (and Hollywood studios for the first time ever) - Disneyland California (first time) - Knott's - Magic Mountain - Disneyland Paris (first time) - Parc Asterix (first time)
Things like Six Flags Great Adventure, Six Flags New England, Cedar Point, Kings Dominion, Busch Gardens Tampa, SeaWorld Orlando, Knoebels, Morey's and Busch Gardens Tampa are always a given too but aside from the Orlando parks none of them are official yet.
