This summer, I was privileged enough to travel to some of the world's best parks and ride some of the best coasters. I had an unforgettable experience, one that I will cherish the rest of my life.
First, I would like to send a huge thank you to all those who I got to experience these travels with. I also would like to send a huge thank you to Robb and Elissa for our great experiences in Europe, and all they did to make the trip a success. Without doubt, this was one of the highlights of my life, and I definitely look forward to joining in on China in 2012.
Since the middle of May, I have traveled over 18,000 miles to 6 different countries, visited 17 parks and rode 90 new coasters. All that can be said is that it was a very successful summer, one I hope to duplicate in the coming years of my life.
I hope you follow with me on this great journey and can share in on the experiences as I relive them. May 24, 2010- Kings Island

I will start with Kings Island and move sequentially until we reach the end of my travels. Likely, my Europe trip will not be posted until the end of the month, as I have yet to start many of the reviews. But bare with me, all trip reports will be posted and the best of the near 3,000 pictures I took will be as well. I hope you enjoy and can share this experience with me!
As always, extensive (and otherwise very truthful) reviews are posted over on my site, The Theme Park Experience.
Without further adue, Diamondback and Kings Island!
