As it stands. Chessington is off the cards for this year at least. Never really fully commited to going there, was just to try somewhere new but by all reports this season is a shocker for them so I'd rather go when they're on top of their game to at least slightly enjoy my day.

Not really arsed on any of the other UK parks. Might look at Flamingo Land at some point if I can justify the drive to myself (mumbo jumbo and hero aren't exactly great bargaining tools).

Definitely back to Alton at some point late in the season assuming Smiler runs for a sustained period trouble free.

Booked a holiday to Salou which includes a 3 day pass to Port Aventura during their halloween celebrations. Hopefully my horsehead mask will blend in.
Lols. Fantasy Island was done on a whim. Chessington on Monday might be done on a whim weather dependant.
 
Well, a co-worker is moving to Dallas and I offered to drive her if she would pay for my flight back. Fingers crossed NTG is open 3 weeks from this Saturday.

So the first weekend of October looks to be my trip up to Canadas Wonderland with stopping at Darien Lake on the friday while Im travelling there. Saturday would be the day for Wonderland, and seeing as how I gots a spare ticket for the place (won 2, but going alone), anyone wanna meet up there?

Weather permitting of course.

Tell me about it! Seeing Cosmic Typhoon barely peeking out over the trees pushes my buttons.

Seriously though, been past the place at least 40 times, just never found a spare hour to stop and get the creds. The little man is big enough now to ride 0.9m coasters so it's the perfect time too.

Spend more than an hour there though, it's a fab place and he'll be entertained for ages.

Oh, and Hershey Park is alright too I guess :p

Yeah, of course, changes from a 1 hr, 3 ride, in-and-out job for me to a full family day now.

Heard HP is rubbish, but tis on the way to Ohio, so why not?! Absolutely nothing to do with a 75mph big yellow Intamin machine of win. :roll:

That place is awesome, in fact I'll have to try and get there one more time this year. Maybe get Knoebels in the same weekend.

Nothing worth going to Ohio for either, so I'd just come back early and book an extra two days for The Big Sheep ;)

Obviously, we're being deadly serious ;)

I certainly don't and regularly hang, draw and quarter anybody who does.

Nah I love the Brits!

And hung drawn and quartered is just the history nerd in me :oops:

Another "trip plan" for this year, if you can call it that, is to get to Clementon and ride hell cat. Only because it's in my state and seems shameful to have missed a good ride that's not very far away.
Well it LOOKED good, now it appears to be trimmed and I hear it's upkeep has been horrid but a cred is a cred.

I always preferred the "Breaking Wheel"
http://www.medievality.com/the-wheel.html

There's a modern day version of it used in Europe too called "Furius Baco" ;)

As for trips, just LWV, FL, and then DMP and Alton - all for CF lives :(

I need to get back to Twinlakes though...

Book a trip to the chiropractor the day you go, you're gonna need it.

Tis the price we pay for our hobby.

I am probably going to SFOG or SFSL this Labor Day to go to the park and see a game. I also just went to Victorian Gardens today for a +1 cred. I can officially call my self a decent credit whore for paying $11 for a mini mouse that I dragged my dad about 2 miles to anyway. I did get to 111 though :D.
