  1. Hey all,

     

    I'm coasting (pun intended) around the eastern US for about 9 days in 2018. I'm planning on hitting four parks, three of which are new to me. I will be riding my 100th coaster on this trip, and if I time it right, it will be Fury 325 IF I get all the credits I need beforehand.

     

    Planned schedule:

     

    May 29 - drive to Sandusky

    May 30 - day at Cedar Point (for SV credit and some repeats)

    May 31 - drive to KI, half day

    June 1 - full day @ KI

    June 2 - drive to Carowinds

    June 3 - full day @ Carowinds

    June 4 - half day Carowinds, drive north to KD

    June 5 - full day @ KD

    June 6 - catch some quick rides @ KD (I305, Twisted Timbers, any credits I missed), then home

     

    My questions are...

    - Do I have enough time budgeted out for each park?

    - Any good inexpensive hotel recommendations?

    - What should I expect for gas costs? (I live in MA)

    - Fast Lane?

    - What dining plan should I get?

    - Are the water parks worth it? (Haven't budgeted in water parks as of now)

     

    Note that I did two days @ CP in 2016, and while I got all the coaster credits, the big rides I missed were...

     

    Iron Dragon VR (I went before they installed it, but I have the coaster credit)

    Witch's Wheel

    maXair

    Skyhawk

    Power Tower

    Right side of Gatekeeper

     

    Definitely going to try for multiple SV rides!

     

    Help pls

  2. Hoping to do a day at CP for a big road trip I'm planning. I went a couple years back and got all the coaster credits (including old Mean Streak), so I'd go for the big ones like Maverick, MF, TTD, and the other side of Gatekeeper, as well as some flats I missed like MaxAir and Power Tower. And, of course, multiple rides on Steel Vengeance.

     

    Anybody know when that's supposed to open, again?

  3. YAHOO! I just rode Tomahawk for the first time yesterday, and that was fun. Looking forward to a Zamperla Giant Discovery as a great improvement.

     

    Also, quick ride count from yesterday:

    Superman

    GCG:EFAA

    Batman: TDK

    Joker

    *On my Joker ride (purple side), I actually stalled upside down at least twice, which made me gray out a little bit. Got my ass kicked.*

    Pandemonium x2 (There's actually a single rider line there I didn't know about: it's the same as the FP queue)

    Wicked Cyclone

    Sky Screamer

    Blizzard River

    Houdini

    Tomahawk

    Scream (They weren't running the shot sequence: just the drop. That sucked )

    Mind Eraser

    I'm about to attract a lot of hate here.

    I found Twisted Colossus overrated

    If it consistently dueled, it would have earned every bit of that hype and blown past I305 and El Toro to be my number 1. Without dueling, it's slightly behind Tatsu. I did get one duel and three chases, so I've ranked it accordingly on my list.

     

    On my one ride, first I dueled, then I went solo, since the second train was so late in getting dispatched. It wasn't even really a chase.
