    Parks You Just WANT To Visit!

    Post  Ccron10 on Tue Aug 25, 2009 4:42 pm

    I know we all have a long list of these! Here's mine:
    Cedar Point
    Kings Island (both might happen next year)
    Six Flags Great Adventure (next year)
    Six Flags Magic Mountain
    Kings Dominion (now the Intimidator is being built)
    Busch Gardens Tampa
    Busch Gardens Williamsburg (I went back in 1995, but I was too young for coasters)
    Knott's Berry Farm
    Great America
    Time for the international parks:
    Fuji-Q(ueue)-Highland (I don't know why I want to go here, but from most of the trip reports I see of this place, I somehow think I would enjoy the atmosphere even though I would have to wait 3+hours for a coaster.

    Nagashima Spaland (The place looks nice, big, and looks like it has some decent coasters.

    Thorpe Park
    Europa Park (This place has some awesome theming)
    Alton Towers
    Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    I have some other smaller parks on my mind, but I really want to go on a TPR trip to see these places.

    I'll post some American parks and Fuji-Q Highland, which is one I really want to go to!

    Almost all the Six Flags'
    Dorney Park
    Kennywood
    Idlewild
    Disneyland
    Knott's Berry Farm
    Both Busch Gardens
    KI
    KD
    Cedar Point

    Actually, I'll fit in some foreign:

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach
    Thorpe Park
    Alton Towers


    Not really a park, but I would like to go to the Stratosphere Tower and ride what they have up there! Very Happy

    I never really thought about this one. I'm not a Six Flags enthusiast and many of the parks that I have visited are ones that I've always wanted to visit. So I guess my list would be somewhat short.

    -Six Flags Over Georgia (if I wanted to visit a Six Flags park somewhere on the east coast that I've never been to)
    -Six Flags Great America (probably the second closest Six Flags park to the east coast that I would want to visit)
    -Holiday World
    -Kennywood.

    The Southern California area parks, but I know I'll never get out there in my lifetime.
    -Disneyland
    -Disney's California Adventure
    -Six Flags Magic Mountain (probably one of the few Six Flags parks that I would want to visit)
    -Knotts Berry Farm

    That's about it for now. Wink

    I would probably never make it out to California in my lifetime either, unless on some big trip out there or if a relative moves to California and I go to visit. But there are a few great parks on the West Coast, too.

    I would like to visit:
    Lakemont Park
    Kennywood

    That's pretty much all for now.

    I've been to nearly every park on the east coast and midwest minus Missouri, so mine would be:

    Canada's Wonderland (Behemoth and an awesome lineup of coasters!)
    Michigan's Adventure (Shivering Timbers is still one of the best on earth, wanna give it a spin!)
    Six Flags St. Louis (triple woodies looks fantastic!)
    Worlds of Fun (Prowler is all I need to go there, not to mention a bigger version of Talon!)
    Silver Dollar City (Powder Keg looks SICK)
    Valleyfair (yet another awesome GCI resides there)
    Mt. Olympus (Hades and the other woodies just might compete with Holiday World & Hershey for best woodies at a park!)
    Six Flags over Texas (after Texas Giant is finished)
    Six Flags Fiesta Texas (I'm a sucker for floorless coasters, & they have had the best since it was built every year!)
    Six Flags Magic Mountain (another coaster paradise)
    Knott's Berry Farm (the coaster lineup keeps getting better and better with each addition)

    I've also wanted to get over to Europe for the longest time because they have some awesome parks as well:

    Alton Towers in England (one of the best over there)
    Europa Park in Germany (Blue Fire...what else needs to be said)
    Liseberg in in Sweden (Balder and Kanonen, awesome 1-2 punch)
    Thorpe Park in England(They have it all, from Colossus to Stealth to Saw, to Nemesis Inferno)
    Toverland in Netherlands (Troy and a new coaster coming next year, count me in!)
    Heide Park in Germany (Colossos looks nasty and the Desert Race looks like a unique Rocket!)
    Djurs Sommerland in Denmark (might sound strange but that's where Piraten is, one of Intamin's awesome looking Megalites!).

    So that's my list, might be a little big and strange but I've been on a lot around here so I'd love to spread my boarders! Very Happy

    An update to my list. I can cross off Six Flags Great Adventure to my park "bucket list". It pretty much lived up to my expectations of being a great park. They just need a lot more flat rides (I am never going to complain about Hershey not having enough after visiting this place).
    My trip was a week before Memorial Day, but I am heading back tomorrow. El Toro, here I come! Very Happy

    Hope you have fun there! Get the flash pass - I didn't since I was told it was a waste but the people who I saw with it go a good use out of it.
    I agree they need a few more flats. They also need some more theming, imo.

    my home park and it's something we have needed for SO MANY YEARS. We had a chaos, enterprise, and Stuntman's Freefall, but all were removed a year after each other, definitely hope we get a batch in the near future from one of the parks that went down (SF Astroworld or New Orleans). Have a blast on the Toro, ride that thing in the back row for the most incredible airtime you will EVER experience
