3 or 4
About how many times a year do you travel to a park that is not your home park?
Probably just around once
When you travel do you go primarily to amusement parks or do you also try and hit other sites?
I like to stick to the places that have the thrill rides.
What is the farthest you’ve traveled to go to an amusement park?
Does roller coaster time get in the way of family time? (Do you choose to miss your children’s or family’s sporting events, holidays, birthdays, etc…)
Do you have any other major hobbies?
Airplanes, I always look forward to airshows and such.
Do you get feelings of sadness in the offseason? Do you even have an offseason? Do you travel during the offseason?
I don't really have an offseason. The parks near me are always open, so I could head out there if I wanted to. Just don't have much time. As far as traveling goes, the farthest I usually go is Orlando, which is about three hours from me.
Do you consider yourself friends with someone you met who works at an amusement park? (Or reverse it, if you work or worked and an amusement park have you made friends with enthusiasts?)

Not at all
Have you gone to an amusement park by yourself? If so have you ever ran into another enthusiast and tagged along with them?
No to both

Have you ever “stole a kid” to get a credit on a kiddie coaster?
Do you cut other categories out of your budget to make trips to parks?
Before you visit a new park do you research the park finding the best way to navigate the park, get the best deals, or what days to go?
Yes, if I don't know the park already.
Do you feel the roller coaster enthusiast community is a warm and accepting community, or a negative and discouraging community?
It always seems welcoming!
Do you like to talk about your hobby with people who are not roller coaster enthusiasts?
