Theme Park Trips for 2012
Sorry for the lack of posts recently, only two posts in the last two weeks.
This summer I’m taking a trip up to the northeast to hit some of the parks there. The only park that I’ve ever visited in this area is Dorney Park in 2006.
First up is Busch Gardens Williamsburg, I’ve only ever heard good things about this park so I’m very exited about it. I’m also exited about getting to try their new coaster Verbolten, opening this year. Some other highlights in this park are Alpengeist, Apollo’s Chariot, and Griffon.
Next is Six Flags Great Adventure, The second largest Six flags park after Magic Mountain, and the #1 most attended. It has the tallest coaster in the world, Kingda Ka, at 456 feet. Some other highlights are Nitro, El Toro, Green Lantern, and Bizarro.
The Coney Island Cyclone is next. This historic coaster was one of my 10 most legendary coasters.
After that is Six Flags New England. I’m very exited about getting to ride Bizarro, it has been voted as the #1 steel coaster in the world (beating out my favorite, Millennium force). Some other highlights are Batman: the Dark Knight and Goliath.
Next is Six Flags America. It will be home to Apocalypse, B&M’s first coaster (even though its been moved from Six flags Great America). Some other highlights are Superman: Ride of Steel, Batwing, and Joker’s Jinx.
So at the end of it I will be able to check off Busch Gardens and Six Flags Great Adventure from my list of most wanted parks. Many of my most wanted coasters will be checked off too.
Wow, this year I will be much busier than last year, where my only park was Cedar Point.
What do you think? What parks are you going to? Please comment. Thanks for reading! 🙂
