There are four NorCal parks in the 2011 report (Happy Hollow, John's Incredible Pizza, Micke Grove, and Oakland Zoo). We haven't been to the majors since 2008. We know we're overdue.

Nice pictures. A couple questions for the OP?

Did you get to a point where you got tired of going to parks?

Also, what was the roller coaster that got away. The one coaster you were looking forward to riding, but was closed at the time of your trip.

Good question. The answer is mostly no. We don't spend a lot of time repeating experiences unless we love them, so the visits are usually either novel, or they're a proven enjoyable quantity, if that makes any sense. I'm generally bored by repetition, so we don't re-visit many parks unless they've added something worth re-visiting. It's also fun to re-visit parks when we're with new people or with friends, which is one reason TPR trips are so much fun, even if you know the park already. We also enjoy traveling in general, so that means always learning new places, new languages, new kinds of food, etc. I've also managed to fold this hobby into my professional life (research and consulting), so even the boring bits have become about studying the guest experience. Yes, there are moments when Cheryl and I will look at each other and sarcastically say, "Living the Dream", but those are far and few between. At the moment, we have no plans on slowing down.

We've missed credits all over the world, but the two that stick out are in Taiwan: Gravity Max at Lihpao Land (formerly Discovery World Yamay, when we visited) and Diving Machine G5 at at Janfusun Fancyworld. We went in April, which is a low season there, so there was a lot of maintenance downtime. The parks weren't crowded, but not everything was running. We missed one other credit in Taiwan, so we're thinking about a return in 2014.

Thanks for checking out the report and thanks for the thoughtful questions.

That's cool you got to visit so many parks in many countries in 2013. Thanks for sharing.

Great overview of all the places you visited and it was a pleasure to hang around with you both at DisneySea and some of the other parks on that trip. I'll see you again in Scandi I guess!

(BTW - Get back to Taiwan ASAP, Gravity Max is awesome. I can't believe you annoyed you must have been when you heard it was down for maintenance.)

This was another amazing year. Since we started taking the theme park hobby too seriously :p , we've tried to hit around 70 parks a year. That's been the goal, but this year we blew the doors off and went over the century mark! We did not one, but two Theme Park Review trips, which were both amazing. Add to that a bunch of trips on our own and we end with a record-breaking year. Since we're over 99, this will be in two pieces.

So once again, without further ado, it's one photo for every park we hit in 2014!

Great summary, Martin!

Just wondering...how did you manage to get the Kiddie Coaster (Rye) and Pteranodon Flyers credits? I wasn't able to get either when I visited.

Also, I'd love to go on a park trip with you guys! ;)
