Sorry to double-post (I can combine the posts if you want), but I was able to add 5 more reviews to bring me up to an even 10. I just added:


Darien Lake, Idlewild, Kings Island, Six Flags Great Adventure, and Waldameer.


That's all for tonight. I like the review feature for the parks!

Updated totals for those who have taken my offer to write new park reviews for the Park Index


Nicole at $1 - I'll give you credit since I forgot to include that in the original post.


Bobby at $1 - Jolly Roger is acceptable


gromithere at $8 - You forgot to include a rating for CGA, since you won't be able to edit your review for 24 hours, just tell me the rating and I'll adjust it to give you another $1. Also, I don't see your Cedar Point review, maybe you forgot to hit submit. Feel free to write more if you wish.

GKTW Village isn't just a special place to sleep and eat, it's an experience in and of itself. Every morning and each evening there is special on-site entertainment catered towards kids. On Saturday and Wednesday mornings our guests are invited to saddle up at Keaton's Korral for horse and pony rides.


The Korral features a ramp for boarding at the same height as the horse, so it's easy for kids of all abilites to transfer on. Three or four specially-trained volunteers assist each child while they ride. Afterwards, each child receives a certificate and a cowboy hat to keep the memory alive!

A little bit late on this, but thank you to whoever donated the $10!

I can't figure out how to go in and see who has donated what, and it's probably something that is clear as day.

Or is this not possible?


Hopefully I'll be able to get more donations from my family & friends soon, but everyone in my family is just too busy doing what they are doing...

Shawn "Shirley" Smith aka SuperShawn was born on May 17th 1986 in Long Island, NY to a kind and nurturing pair of Religious Mormon Parents. My Dad, being in the Navy, moved around alot and settled on calling Seattle home, and thats where I grew up into the fine Gothy slightly Flamboyant Pink coloured Alchoholic beverage drinking Man I am today. As a kid I was always interested but scared of rollercoasters, in fact I cried in Line for Space Mountain as a kid at Disneyland, but I still was fascinated by them and became something worse to my parents then being gay... a Rollercoaster Enthusiast. From there the downward spiral of addiction to riding took me abroad to Japan to study in Tokyo for a year, and then to the heck hole that is LA for the past 4 years where that addiction has skyrocketed and most likely I should be put in an institute.

Hello, I'm Cassandra, or cas93. I'm a white-as-you-can-get, blue eyed 19 year old woman. I was born on January 29, 1993 at Barstow Community Hospital, and I was three weeks early. My mother was actually in labor with me for a few months, and had to go back to the hospital on a regular basis to recieve shots so she wouldn't delever me too early.


My childhood isn't really the best, and I'd prefer to skip talking about it in detail. Too much stuff that should just be kept in the past, but to sum it up, I was sexually abused, and I was treated like a slave for the most part. At some point, I decided to eat food non-stop to gain weight, because being overweight wasn't attractive to those I was around. Obviously I have gotten better now about it, seen as I'm no longer overweight and I don't think that way too much anymore.

Due to that, I don't have much pictures of me when I was a child. I pretty much destroyed them all when I lost weight.


I was homeschooled when I hit 7th grade, I went through Options For Youth Charter School. Despite having teachers and tutors there to help me with my subjects, I pretty much never used them and figured things out on my own with the books they supplied. I was able to graduate with honors, with barely any help, except for math.


At 18 years old, I was able to purchase my first new car. It was an 2012 Ford Focus SFE. I only had it for two weeks and I was hit head on by some dumbass that didn't have insurance or a license. I was taken to the ER in an neck brace and on a back board, and later on in the year I had to have reconstructive surgery on my right wrist. I still have not settled with State Farm, and I had to go and get an attorney for them to even pay off the car. My accident was on May 7, 2011..


Now I find myself to be working with the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools. I'm a Paraeducator Subsitute, which is just a fancy name for being a special education teacher's aid. Right now I'm in a long term position at an elementary school, and the classroom I am in is just amazing, despite one kid always trying to scratch and bite me. He doesn't go after any other aids but me...I guess he just loves me. Lol.


Some random facts:

-I'm allergic to bananas.

-I have at least $150 thousand waiting for me whenever State Farm settles, possibly more depending on things. I love my attorney.

-Desert Rat and proud of it!

-I've been going to Six Flags Magic Mountain for over 10 years now. I may not remember some of those years, but it still counts!

-I've been to WDW twice, each time I spent a week there.

-I've lived in Southern California for all my life, but I've been to almost all the states.

-My grandfather is the closest person to me, and I know when he passes away I will have a huge problem accepting that...

-I want to move out of California.

-I've been to court before.

-Kicked out of the house four times when I was living with my mother.

-I'm struggling with depression.

-I have two Miniature Dachshunds, one happens to have severe deformity in her front legs. She's also costed me a lot of money recently with an emergency vet visit, xrays, and medicine.

-I have an facebook addiction. Not nearly bad as before, but it's still slightly there. Before I'd usually post two or three times a day, now...not much.

-My favorite food is mexican right now...it varies.

-I loooove Outback, Souplantaion, Rustin House (Local in Lancaster, CA), and Carl's Jr.

-I don't really like sweet things anymore. My fatkid days kinda killed cake and candy for me.

-I'm currently cutting out sodas. Which is going good, only had two cans of soda this week! It's been only 2% Milk, water, and tea.

-My favorite character is Taz.


I gotta stop there, due to the fact that I need to be giving Darcy some meds and probably going to bed.

I put my pictures in Imgur, mostly due to the fact that there's an decent amount of them, and I don't want to make this post insanely big.

Plus the fact that I'm just being lazy right now, and I don't want to resize...and Imgur doesn't let them be huge.

The Photo Album!


I actually opened and went into my photobucket account for this post...I never go into that thing anymore, so that's why it took a bit long for me to post this!




Forgot my food places and favorite character. I can't leave those out...ahaha.
