I've got 3 trips planned for now. Second week in May I'll be doing 2 days at Silver Dollar City plus a few hours at Worlds of Fun before my return flight.

Then in June I have a 9-day, 7-park road trip lined up from Kings Dominion to Six Flags Great America. Will go like this:
Tuesday 19th: Kings Dominion
Wednesday 20th: Hersheypark
Thursday 21st: Hersheypark (I have a habit of getting rained out when I visit, so I made sure of 2 days this time!)
Friday 22nd: Knoebels
Saturday 23rd: Waldameer
Sunday 24th: Cedar Point
Monday 25th: Cedar Point
Tuesday 26th: Michigan's Adventure (new park for me)
Wednesday 27th: Six Flags Great America (new park for me and the last "big" US park I still need to visit)
I may decide to write up a TR for this one.

And finally in August I'll take a weekend to head up North for California's Great America and Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. That will make 4 new RMCs for me this year! Might try to do something in October as well, but I haven't made plans yet.

I planned my May/June trip, so my listing has changed quite a bit. I'm also planning a weekend trip later this summer, up to NorCal, but it's not set in stone yet. I really want to get up there to try Railblazer and Joker; plus, I'm not sure if I'll renew my CF Platinum Pass next year, so I want to get my money's worth out of it this year.

- Six Flags Magic Mountain
- Knott's Berry Farm
- Cedar Point
- Kings Island

Kentucky Kingdom
California's Great America
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
Seat, don't fail me now!

Six Flags NJ and Hersheypark this weekend :b Possibly Dollywood at the end of May to reconcile the psychological damage sustained at the hands of Lightning Rod being a bitch the last time I was there :angry:

We have toned down our park visits since Michael's cancer/surgery, but we did make it to BGT last December, which was our first park since late 2016.

This year, we are planning on SDC in May and depending on weather and how Michael is feeling, we may try to hit up SFStL, or perhaps KK, KI or CP on the way home.

My thinking is that it's likely going to be CP on the way home because I am getting really impatient to ride Steel Vengeance. :lol:

KD or BGW could be in the cards later in the year so that we can visit Michael's son, daughter in law and grand-kids in Richmond.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

Thanks for all the feedback on my midwest trip!

Another option I'm currently considering is Kings Dominion, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, and Water Country USA. Flights to Richmond and Roanoke look cheap for me. Seems like Water Country USA gets solid reviews for waterparks and could potentially fit a beach day. Thoughts?

Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!

SFA (Home park)
SFGAdv (Not too far and has Toro :airtime: :lover: )

More likely than not
Adventure Park USA (Small FEC with three coasters that's technically closer than SFA)

Decent Possibility
Kings Dominion
Coney Island

Possibly but unlikely
Amusement Parks in Ocean City

Hopefully there will be some happy surprises along the way, but that's what's in store for me
1. El Toro :airtime: 2. El Toro :airtimer: 3. El Toro :airtime: 4. El Toro :airtimer: --- I'm not good at ranking...
