^ I wish they could alternate between observation and drop mode to satisfy both non thrill seekers and thrill seekers.

Aren't there parks in Europe that do that?

So I guess the Virginia winter coaster options are:

Dominator
Racer 75
Great Pumpkin
InvadR
Verbolten
and Grover

Better than nothing I will say!

^ Yeah, this trend of parks opening up for Christmas is fantastic. While Six Flags runs circles around the rest, that's a pretty nice selection of coasters in it's own right... especially since it's combined with great atmosphere, decorations and theming and a bunch of other fun rides and experiences.

I have yet to visit a winter event. That may need to change in the near future.

I will most likely check out Winterfest @ KD this year since it's 35 minutes from my apartment.

If KD is 35 minutes from you then Great Adventure is about 4 hours. Sounds like a road trip is in order. I mean, you can ride an 80mph hyper coaster in 20 degree weather, just sayin.

I need to go back to Great Adventure asap I haven't been since 2011. Definitely high on my revisit priority list.

^ I'd argue just drive the extra 2.5 hours to go to Dollywood now that Lightning Rod is actually running. Their Christmas event is one of the few that I think tops Great Adventure's.

It's so nice having all of these holiday events now!

^Yeah I'm still having my issues with being too big for RMC as this year was devoted to passing the CPA Exam instead of the gym. But I'm optimistic about next year. At least I got to add Tempesto, InvadR, PHOENIX, Twister, Impulse, Flying Turns, and Black Diamond to my coasters ridden this year.
