--Your 2005 year in review:
I really upped my count this year with trips to CP, HP, SFNE, IoA, BGT and finishing my credits at Great Adventure
--Your first coaster of the year:
Incredible Hulk @ Islands of Adventure
--Your last coaster of the year:
Kingda Ka @ Six Flags Great Adventure
--Best new steel to me:
Superman: Ride of Steel @ SFNE. 'Nuff said.
--Best new wood to me:
Wildcat @ Hershey Park
--Best new flat ride to me:
maXair @ Cedar Point
--Best new water ride to me:
Dudley Do Right's Ripsaw Falls @ Islands of Adventure
--Best new dark ride/walk through to me:
Amazing Adventures of Spiderman @ Islands of Adventure
--Best new water park attraction to me:
Typhoon @ SFNE's Hurricane Harbor. Airtime on a water slide!!!!!
--Best new park to me:
Islands of Adventure wins best "theme park". The level of theming in the park and the quality of the rides was amazing. Cedar Point gets best "amusement park"
--Best park "moment" of the year:
Cresting TTD's tophat for the first time, seeing the lake.
--Best overall park "trip" of the year:
Driving back from Chicago hitting Cedar Point and Hershey Park, but my BGT/IoA trip is very, very close.
--Most Dissapointing new attraction (any kind) to me of the year:
Millenium Force. I mean, people say that it's a #1 coaster, but it makes #6 on my list and I only have like 70 credits! It has no airtime at all, and riding a month after I rode S:RoS didn't help much either. Again, I'm not saying that it's bad, I'm just saying that I was dissapointed by it
--Best event at a park:
SP Holders only Easter at Great Adventure! No lines allowed many rerides including 7 in a row on Chiller 8)
--Best non-event day at a park:
My first full day at Cedar Point. I didn't wait on a line for anything except TTD, MF and maXair.
--Best Amusement related news of the year:
Six Flags for "families"
--Worst Amusement related news of the year:
Mr. Six getting fired
--Ride that I had to rethink my opinion of in 2005:
Superman: Ultimate Flight. I didn't like the ride at all in 2004, but after a bunch of rides in 2005, the flyer is starting to grow on me.
--Hopes for 2006:
I get a boatload of back car rides on El Toro!
I switched "worst new attraction" to "most disappointing" because I didn't really ride anything that bad in 2005
