I'd say your original "quiet" plan sounds like my definition of a very busy year lol... :p

I still only have Heide Park in 12 days on my definitive to-do list this year. There is a good chance of a visit to Liseberg later this year, love that park so much! A weekend trip to Poland for Legendia/Energylandia would be great also.

SFA (Home park)
SFGAdv (Not too far and has Toro :airtime: :lover: )

More likely than not
Hersheypark
Adventure Park USA (Small FEC with three coasters that's technically closer than SFA)

Decent Possibility
Kings Dominion
Coney Island

Possibly but unlikely
Knoebles
Amusement Parks in Ocean City
SFOG

Hopefully there will be some happy surprises along the way, but that's what's in store for me

Now that I'm unlikely to go to any new parks in 2018, here's my final talley of parks I got to:
-SFA
-SFGAdv
-SFGAm
-Knoebles
-Hersheypark
-Adventure Park USA

While nothing too insane, I'm actually incredibly happy with how many parks I was able to go to! I've gotten to go to parks far more this year than any other year before, and I visited two new parks, both of which I had a great time at (SFGAm and Knoebles :lover: ). I can't wait to see how many park visits I rack up when I actually start driving :lol:

Onward to 2019!
1. El Toro :airtime: 2. El Toro :airtimer: 3. El Toro :airtime: 4. El Toro :airtimer: --- I'm not good at ranking...

I really want to get up there to try Railblazer and Joker; plus, I'm not sure if I'll renew my CF Platinum Pass next year, so I want to get my money's worth out of it this year.

Definitely:
- Six Flags Magic Mountain
- Knott's Berry Farm
- Cedar Point
- Kings Island

Probably:
Kentucky Kingdom
Kennywood
California's Great America
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom


Final tally from 2018:
Six Flags Magic Mountain
Knott's Berry Farm
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
Cedar Point
Kennywood
Kings Island

In August, we're going to start trying for our one and only kid while vacationing in Hawaii. Our in-laws have already paid for the trip for their 50th anniversary, so we're incredibly fortunate and thankful for that. With all of this in mind, we're going to try to hit a lot of parks next year:

Definites:
Canada's Wonderland (1 of two bucket list parks)
Carowinds (Return trip for my favorite roller coaster, Fury)
SFGam (Return trip - frequently visited)
King's Island (Return trip - frequently visited)
SFSTL (Home park)
Coasters and Castles for about an hour (Return trip to Phoenix/Sedona, first touch-and-go at CC)

Probably:
SFGam (Haven't been back in eighteen years)

Maybe:
SFoG (Return trip five years ago)
SFoT (2 of 2 bucket list parks)

Probably not: BGW

CW and SFoT are bucket list parks, because I have no desire to go overseas to ride roller coasters. There are plenty of great options here. If we happen to go overseas and a park is nearby, we'll go. I'm pretty content and probably simple minded, so traveling to another continent just doesn't interest me. There's so much to see here.

Haha. I agree. Sounds like a solid summer for Ed.

Pretty successful year with some definitely unexpected (since earlier this year) add-ons
