FFFFFccckkkk! Coaster Campout is the weekend before the July, 4th. Last year it was the third week in May, which meant FL+ guaranteed waits under 10 minutes, if not walk-on. It was also great, because we didn't sweat much. That comes in handy when you can't shower. Welp. I guess that's a no-go for us. The timing also doesn't work out with one of our other trips. But damn. We thought it was going to be in May, again. I'm bummed out.

Which coaster usually craps the bed during the day, if any? Let me guess, TTD? In other words, is there a Ka at the park (get on the ride at park opening type)? Also, more importantly, what should I ride last; the one that's going to give me a headache. I have a feeling that it's going to be Corkscrew.

It's funny. Only a month after the CP and KI trip, I'm going on my 100 coasters in 7 days excursion. I'm still ironing out details. If anyone is wondering, I have a ton of leave that I've saved, and want to use a week for this trip. If I don't use a certain amount before year's end, I lose it. Losing leave =FAIL.

Yeah, good move. I have the same setup at work, so I end up taking a couple of trips usually.

Others are correct about TTD. Ride Corkscrew last; it's the only genuinely bad coaster there. Also, you can't ride Wilderness Run unless you have a child with you.

Or you could be a complete credit whore and ask Town Hall for a pass to ride. But only if you care that much about creds; you're better off getting re-rides on Vengeance, the Intamins, Raptor or Magnum.

I was denied such a pass for Wilderness Run. They said they only give those in clear cases where an adult has special needs.

Isn't "getting that kiddy coaster credit as an adult" a sort of special need? ;) (No plan to offend anyone, just kidding)

Oh sh*t man, that's no good at all. They moved Brews and BBQ later too, maybe they're having problems staffing early season events like that.

If anyone I don't know ever tries that, I'm calling park security. That's seriously uncool behaviour.

You may laugh, but some of those kiddie coasters are so poorly maintained and rough that when you couple that with their slow speed and size, you actually kind of get a wild ride. Plus, the restraints are pretty much non-existent.

I won't wait a long time for one, and out of courtesy I'll try to let the kids get the front over me, but if its more or less a walk on I'll gladly take a lap on a ride that I paid good money for at a park.
