  1. I'm planning on making my first trip out to Holiday World this year as part of a larger trip. I'm not sure how much time to plan spending there. We are looking forward to enjoying both the park and Splashin' Safari. Do you need multiple days to enjoy both?
  2. We've never been to Idlewild. We could probably stop there on our way to Kennywood.
  3. Actually, we will be renting a car and flying back from St. Louis. We're trying to keep hotels as cheap as possible. Thanks for the heads up about the Columbus Zoo. We might consider that. You're right, we normally go to Knoebels and Hersheypark every year regardless so I didn't want to waste a day of our trip on them.
  4. Hello, my brother & I are planning a road trip across the midwest this summer. We did a road trip a couple of summers ago through New England but we are still pretty new at planning these. I'm just looking for any advice or suggestions that anyone would be willing to offer. Our trip will start in Philadelphia (where I live) and head westward. Our rough itinerary is: Day 1: Kennywood Day 2: Cedar Point Day 3/4: Kings Island Day 5: Kentucky Kingdom Day 6: Holiday World Day 7: Six Flags St. Louis Day 8: Travelling home Kennywood & Cedar Point are the only two parks that we've been to before. We generally like to spend an entire day at a park rather than do multiple parks in the same day. We try to enjoy as much as possible that these parks have to offer while getting all of the coaster credits of course. One thing we are debating about is whether we should do 2 days at Kings Island or Holiday World, or both and scrap one of the other parks, or neither and possibly add a park. I know Holiday World is a smaller park but we definitely want to be able to enjoy both the park and Splashin' Safari. Is this doable in one day? Also, will we be able to get all 15 credits at Kings Island in one day? I've read different people suggesting getting the Fast Lane. That's something I've never done before and was wondering if it's worth it, they seem pretty expensive. I guess we would only be worried about it at Kings Island if we're only there for one day. I'm not particularly worried about Cedar Point, Steel Vengeance is the only new credit for me and we can just focus on our favorites there without having to worry about riding everything. Here's a link to our map: https://goo.gl/maps/pypxf5mRPCgBrzCx6 Should we scrap one of these parks in favor of another one? Are there any small parks that we would be able to squeeze in without adding any days? Are there any can't miss attractions at any of these parks outside of the rollercoasters? Food recommendations? I would also appreciate any and all suggestions regarding booking hotels. That is a skill I have yet to master. Or any overall suggestions for making this trip as cheap as we possibly can. I apologize for all of these questions. Thanks ahead for any and all input!
