Now that the closed season is nearly upon us (boooo!) I thought I'd get the ball rolling on where you lot might fancy going next year. This is just an ideas topic. Feel free to make suggestions!

Here are a few ideas rattling around in my brain:

Weekender, early July - Walibi Holland and Bobbejaanland. The RMC set to open on 1st July, and Bobbejaanland getting that new Gerst.

November / December - Phantasialand Wintertraum. This allows plenty of time for FLY to open, and we get to experience all the unique festivities of Wintertraum.

Ghosterforce : EITHER - Tripsdrill / Schwaben Park / Europa Park
OR Liseberg. (I am going to check out their Halloween event this weekend, so if it's good then this one could be tempting. The nice thing about doing a weekender in Gothenburg is you can get a bus straight to the park from the airport, so no car hire faff or long drives etc. Plus, you know, Valkyria. And night rides on Helix.)

Leipzig weekender - Belantis and Plohn

France trek - Futuroscope / Le Pal / Walibi Rhone Alps

What do you guys reckon, any of those sound good? Any parks you think would make a good Live in 2019?

Id be up for Phantasialand and the Leipzig weekender. Would Finland work, Seeming as they are getting Taiga and I feel like the last time Coasterforce did a Finland Live, Junker at power park and Hyper at Linnanmaki didn't exist so that is something with potential? Also the idea for Ghosterforce at Europa sounds good, could also Try Rulantica also seeming thats opening next year. Sounds good to me Serena :p

+2 for everyone, as well as the fab Indiana woodies. Central location(should) make it easy-ish for everyone, and only 4 parks should make it simple to manage.

All the ideas sound good. No idea what I'd be able to do out of them though. The only other thing that came to my mind was Heide for Colossos. Not sure how that would fit with anything though.

Looking at Tripsdril, they do a 'Indian Summer' event at the start of the month, with loads of pumpkins etc. Buuuuuuttttt at the end of the month for 2 days they do a 'Fire and Flame' event which looks cool



(though on the 4th of this year they have a event where you can take as many pumpkins away as you can after 4pm)

I'm all over that RMC at Walibi Holland, but would almost certainly be looking at doing Phantasialand on the same trip, no doubt swinging in to Toverland en route to have a quick rip on Fenix.
Ghosterforce at Europa sounds good but I will have only just got back from 'Murica then so we'll have to see what the funds are like for that one.
I've not even heard of those parks on the Liepzig and France weekenders, so they'll probably be a no, sorry.

I mean I am trying to get to Germany in June-August so a Live during that time would be fabulous.


US Live I would definitely consider a couple long weekend options.

- What GWaS mentioned
- Texas [SFOT. SFFT, ZDT, Kemah]
- CP. SFGAm

It's about time I look into attending a CF Live. Would have to stick with the US for me.

I like GWAS's idea as well. I imagine CP and KI could be thrown in there pretty easily as well. I'm hoping to make a drive out to at least CP and back, and adding the KI, KK, and HW leg are tempting.

What about Kennywood for Steel Curtain?

Would work, but not for me I'm afraid, won't be flying over next year :(

Liseberg during Halloween is faaaaaab, so that's defo something to consider. Park also opens at around noon and stays open until 11PM~
I'm also up for all the other suggestions :9

Ideas sound good so far, how about an off-season survival trip to efteling or bpb in February?
Usa wise, there's the new coaster at carowinds, which could early be included in a Dollywood and sfog trip.

I was thinking Finland too, it’s been a while since the last CF live there and there’s been a fair amount of new stuff since.

Quite a few people seem to be looking at Leipzig, so that's probably a goer. Good for me, since I can extend out to grab Poland. I'd also do Finland again. Other than that, I'm fairly easy hopping on to whatever. My next year's empty at the moment.

Would it be reasonable to try a UK live somewhere to make it easier for new members to introduce themselves, or would we not get enough core members to make it worth it?
 
Good plans so far, here are some ideas to throw into the mix:-

If F.L.Y opens earlier in the season - I think a trip should be in order AS WELL AS not 'instead' of the Wintertraum, as i'd love to do Wintertraum too. Phantasialand in infinately re-visitable so shouldn't be a problem, also it's easy to combine with other centra europe parks Also if FLY does open in good time, not sure I can wait till next Winter to visit!

In terms of the French trek, I did wonder if a good Ghosterforce would be...... start Nigloland (their Halloween looks beautiful).......LePal(no halloween but halfway mark).......Walibi Rhode Alps(which does have a Walibi Halloween).

ANOTHER ghosterforce idea would be to follow the 2017 route-ish START Phantasialand instead of Movie Park (should F.LY. be open) onto Heide should Colossus be open then finish at Hansa for their magical autumn event (no new cred but new drop tower, always a warm welcome and KARNAN!) - maybe mix in with somewhere that does a scare event too OR fly/sail to Gothenburg Liseberg... from Hamburg/Lubeck?? Maybe start on a Thurs Phantasialand etc

Also if Ghosterforce DOESN'T end up being Europa/Tripdrill - I think this should still happen as a live! maybe in June or Sept.... Maybe that 'Indian Summer' event as someone mentioned above!

Bobbejaanlandejaan to Walibi Holland, I'd be up for, could it start in Walibi Belgium for those who need the Tiki-Waka cred? (the big creds not opening till 2021 anyway)

I'd be up for scooping up Poland too JayJay....

If you end up at le pal, you could also add in Parc des combes - Family boomerang, alpine coaster, toboggan, and a couple of bonkers flats..
