I really didn't do much coaster riding this summer, due to jaw surgery, so I'm planning to make up for it by visiting a few new parks next year. Having just caught the coaster bug last year, I haven't visited any other parks outside of my home parks, but I definitely want to visit Cedar Point and Kings Island next year. I've been looking at other parks around that area to visit; if any of y'all have any recommendations, I'd love to add another park or two to the list (preferably a Six Flags or Cedar Fair park, since I bought season passes for next year). If that falls through, I'll head up to NorCal to visit SFDK and CGA.
Definitely: - Six Flags Magic Mountain (my home park) - Knott's Berry Farm (also my home park)
Probably: - Cedar Point - Kings Island - Six Flags Discovery Kingdom - California's Great America
Maybe: - Six Flags Great America - Michigan's Adventure - Kentucky Kingdom - Dollywood - Kennywood
2018 is split into "pre-wedding" (07/14/18) and "post-wedding" sections for me.
Pre-Wedding This time period will be very lean - we actually passed on getting season passes anywhere next year in order to save money, influenced by the idea that we wouldn't have much free time on weekends to go anywhere anyway. I may visit SFGAdv with my brother with one of his BAFF discounts, but that'll most likely be it.
Post-Wedding (a.k.a. "The Lynns are Going Dutch!" One of the main reasons why we're saving money now, aside for the wedding and a down-payment on a house, is because we decided that we're going to the Netherlands for our honeymoon. We're most likely staying for 10-14 days, some of which must be dedicated to non-amusement park stuff, so I'm looking at Efteling, Walibi Holland, Toverland, and maybe Attractiepark Slagharen, but only if time allows for it. Once we're home, I plan on getting the 2019 Six Flags passes in order to get into SFGAdv for the remainder of the year, too.
