Michael that is seriously cool that you're going to the Netherlands for your honeymoon!! You have to do a TR for us! I've always wanted to go there and have a several dogsport friends who live there. It's supposed to be just beautiful and the people are all wonderfully nice.

As far as my 2018 parks, we have SF and CF passes so go to a lot of places:

Kings Dominion
Cedar Point
Carowinds
SF Great Adventure
SF America
Dollywood

Possibly:
Knoebels
Hersheypark
SF Magic Mountain
Knotts

^ Thanks!! I plan on that TR. Really looking forward to it. Our family friend goes over to Amsterdam a few times each year for work and has been helping us out with some of the planning.

I haven't really planned out 2018 yet but I will definitely do something.

Definitely:
Knott's Berry Farm
California's Great America
Girloy Gardens (with the Cedar Fair Platinum Pass I'll be getting since I've never been here before)
Six Flags Magic Mountain (if there is a West Coast Bash)

Probably:
Walt Disney World (planning to do another trip to Orlando some time next year, this time for Disney)
Busch Gardens Tampa (I will try to tag a day here when I go to Orlando)
Cedar Point (possibly for CoasterMania)

Possibly:
Sea World Orlando (if I could squeeze this until my Orlando trip)
Waldameer (if I could tag this on to my Cedar Point trip)
Kennywood (if I could tag this on to my Cedar Point trip)
Disneyland/DCA (who knows what could bring me here for a day or two)
Universal Studios Hollywood (if I do their Halloween Horror Nights)
Universal Studios Florida (if I visit Orlando during October)
Sea World Sea Diego (if I make a trip down to San Diego)

Who knows what else I decide to do? I like to keep my options open.

Did my homework. Listened in class.

Worked 40 hour weeks cleaning toilets starting at age 16. Worked the lowest level job in my field and a second one at the mall right out of college, sold most of my comic books, and paid off the debt without complaint by 23.

Another degree later, solid resume of experience... yup, at 43 I can take my family and ride whatever roller coasters I damn well please. If I can't get to the park I can run with scissors with a lollipop in my mouth without a helmet and tilt my chair way far back.

Home Parks:
Busch Gardens Tampa
SeaWorld Orlando
Fun Spot America Parks

Returning To Parks:
Carowinds

New To Me Parks:
Cedar Point
Kings Island
Kentucky Kingdom

Possible:
Dollywood
Six Flags Over Georgia

Re: Where Are You Going in 2018?

Definite:
Oaks Amusement Park

Planned California trip:
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
California's Great America
Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk
Possible bonus parks

This must happen. It was already ridiculous before next year's announcements. I don't know yet if I'll do one big-yet-still-small trip, or two or more 1-2 park trips to get all three parks in. I might even go down to SFDK this year. I haven't been to SCBB and CGA since 2009, and it's been five years since I've been to SFDK.

Short list of other parks:
Cedar Point, Kings Dominion, Six Flags Over Georgia, Silver Dollar City, Knoebels, Dollywood. No thoughts on the logistics at this point, but at the same time, it's painful to imagine not going to these places next year.

Maybe:
SFFT and SeaWorld San Antonio. This would be much closer to a given if it weren't for RailBlazer. It should probably still happen anyway though.

Likely due to proximity:
Enchanted Forest Theme Park

My current priorities, not all of which are reflected above, are as follows: 1) the parks with major new coasters for 2018; 2) parks and major coasters that are new to me; 3) revisiting old favorite parks and rides. With other bits and bobs thrown in for good measure, I suppose.

    Adventureland
    Nickelodeon Universe
