Pacific Northwest is appealing to me, but West Coast would be good too.

Definitely interested in either the West Coast or the Texas tours. Pacific Northwest doesn't really have that much to offer as far as coasters go, so I'd probably pass on that. Out of the two remaining trip options, if I had to make a choice, it would be the West Coast trip.

West Coast:
+ longer tour
+ all new parks compared to the 2013 Midwest Tour
+ several major new credits that haven't been featured on a TPR tour yet (Gold Rusher, Superman, YOLO Coaster)
+ overall, very good park lineup

- more expensive than the Texas option

+ cheaper
+ includes 3 major credits we missed on the 2013 Midwest Tour (Iron Rattler, Texas Giant, Shockwave)
+ SFFT and Sea World were both worth revisiting
+ would be very excited for Boardwalk Bullet and Iron Shark

- shorter tour
- Texas is hell in July / August
- 3 parks repeated from the 2013 Midwest Tour
- SFOT was less than stellar this year (may improve next year)

Texas looks like a fun tour, so does West Coast, even Pacific has it's fun parts, tartar sauce, my decision became harder

Texas looks best for three reasons:

-Cost (fantastic value for what you get!)
-# of fantastic coasters and parks

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

If the northwest trip happens, looks like I will have to scrounge up some cash somewhere. Texas is too hot, and I was just there, and it is nothing for me to go out to Cali.

I'd be interested in Texas or California, depending on my Grad School schedule. There are new coasters in both those areas since my last visits to Texas and California.

However, the Pacific Northwest is not to be underestimated from a tour standpoint since it really is a pain to do all that boring driving and a border crossing in a car when you can relax on a coach instead. Also, Coaster at Playland will not disappoint.
