Just got back from my annual cross-country adventure to Solace, and I will also give a nod to SFMM for making some improvements. All the ERTs had 2 trains running and were ready to go when the gates opened. Knott's on the other hand was maybe a step down from last year, and "Sliver" Bullet was kind of disappointing, even though I wasn't expecting much.
I am getting ready to pull the video from the DV cam and hope to get some trip reports ready in the next day or so.
// Sorry I didn't have much time to chat Robb. I think Catrina must have caught something from Elissa.
I also had a great time at my FIRST solace. All I went to was KBF. It was okay. Except once the park opened. Then people came in like stampeeding buffalo! SB's line was long, but still rode it twice. Didn't ride GR cos line was too long, which was disapointing cos I haven't ridden it for like ever. After we had our free buffet lunch, we rode a couple more coasters, but then left around the four five-ish time. We were really wiped out and did nothing the next day. Woulda went to SFMM but didn't know solace was being held there. Anyway, it was super cool meeting you guys in person. And you might remember me slipping and nearly breaking my head exiting TT! We might go next year, and to SFMM if solace is held there. I dunno. Anyway, until next year!(hopefully)

Everyone has aphotographic memory. Some just don't have film.
I came to California and Solace weekend as a guest of a fellow Minnesota parkie, Jerry Dorf. While I'm a newbie at the coaster enthusiast bit (this was my first bona fide coaster event), I have been reading themeparkreview.com for a while, and thoroughly enjoy the site.
I cannot stress this point enough: Knott's were FANTASTIC hosts for this event. From the great food to the great crews, plus an excuse to escape cold Minnesota, I had an absolute blast.
For all of you who didn't go to the Saturday night ERT on the Bullet, you missed an absolutely fantastic crew who was having as much fun as we were (or so it seemed).
I am writing a LONG trip report for the weekend (Knott's and the Rideworld event at SFMM on Sunday), and if you like, I can post it here. Thanks!
