Still, I am planning my next holiday, so within the next 2 or 3 years, I'll be able to say Six Flags Magic Mountain, Knott's Berry Farm, Disneyland, California Adventure, Las Vages, Six Flags Astroworld, Six Flags Feista Texas, Six Flags Over Texas, Islands of Adventure, Universial Studios, Seaworld Orlando, Wet 'n' Wild Orlando, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kindgom, Ghoast Town in the Sky, Six Flags Georgia, Six Flags World's of Adventure, Cedar Point, Six Flags Darein lake and Paramount King's Island. We're also looking at checking out Lake Compounce, Holiday World, Six Flags New England and Paramount Great Adventure. But for now, only the 2 above :(

While I have yet to go to any parks myself, the list and time frame that Joz mentioned is about the same for myself. The only diff is that I will start on the west coast with Six Flags Magic Mountian, Knotts Berry Farm etc and will then jet over to see Lance from Screamscape and do the whole Orlando thing with Lance as a guide. Still in planning but am trying to get this done with more ppl than just my family.

I've been to Euro Disney. It wasn't bad but it's aimed at a very young crowd. Space mountain was awesome. 3 loops all indoors with an awesome light show. You start the ride by being shot out of this hugh cannon. The Indiana coaster was cool as well. all backwards with a largish loop. The mine train was also pretty good.

When we went to Euro Disney we were supposed to go to parc Asterix instead but it was closed :( So we got into Disneyland for free cause the travel agency were such retards. I really wanted to go to parc Asterix. I think it's goudrix's run? The big white steel coster that looked awesome

It's a real shame you didn't get to go to Parc Asterix! Its a really good park! Yeah the white steel ones called Goudirux. Its a really amazing ride. It had it's fair share of inversions. Especially the Butterfly or Batwing (have no clue what its called :oops: ) inversion after the loop, has really good speed on the drop. And it goes over water!. You shoul try and go there next time youre there. Its got a big wooden one called Zues aswell, i would say 1000 times better than BB. :D

Places we went to included: Six Flags Magic Mountain Six Flags Marine World Disneyland Universal Studios Buffalo Bills Las Vegas Santa Monica Pier. We would love to go back. Would like to go to Cedar Point and some more Six Flags.

true slick but its obvious how sqeaky and horrible the thunderbolt looks and sounds. lots of should already know by now that it has always been like that and was built to feel like a wooden rollercoaster. but infact they are keeping the first drop and the 2 famous australian loops but deleting the rest of the ride because of complaints. ciao buonanotte

This one is a bit old. I never posted the first time so why not. I've been to: Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk (not open at the time, just wandered around the dead park) Universal Studios Hollywood Disneyland Disney's California Adventure Six Flags Magic Mountain Belmont Park SeaWorld of San Diego Circus Circus Nascar Cafe (Speed not operating due to weather) Stratosphere (rides not operating) Six Flags Over Texas Universal Studios Orlando Islands of Adventure Busch Gardens Tampa SeaWorld of Orlando Magic Kingdom Epcot Animal Kingdom Disney-MGM Studios Blizzard Beach (water park) Wet 'n Wild Orlando (water park) Next year Paramount's Kings Islands, Holiday World, Cedar Point, Coney Island (Astroland etc.) and one or two others will be added to that list. Kumba is a great, intense and smooth B&M. As with any B&M it's a great ride, though at the same time there's nothing about it that really stands out. I'd have to say the best thing about it is that it was a complete walk-on for my entire visit, and most reports suggest it is like this on any visit.

Cedar Point, SFMM & Paramounts Kings Island. If anyone hasn't experienced The Beast at Kings Island, it's magnificent. It lives up to all the hype it gets, it's truley amazing.

The Beast is a good coaster but at night is when it comes alive. i was fortunate to ride it around midnight early this year on my trip, a great coaster experience. My park list has increased to another 17 this year From CedarPoint to Knoebels.Next year hopefully returning to Kingsisland,Dollywood ,Holiday world plus Michigans Adventure,Silverdollar city, World of Fun, Sixflags Stlouis and Sixflags Great America.
