Thread: What was the last park you visited?

  1. #241
    The last theme park that i went to was Busch Gardens Europe in Virginia. That was one of the best parks that ive ever been 2. It is so beautiful and it has such thrilling coasters it all adds up as one of the best parks that ive ever visited

    Conneaut Lake Park - I visited another park that came back from the dead today. Freestyle Music Park was the other one this year. In 2007 that park was Ghost Town in the Sky.

    Was at Wild Adventures today. I took my niece and my little cousin. I was wanting to try the Wahee Cyclone, which was a blast. Also the Cheetah is doing well, and I heard from an employee that they have bought new trains for her. He didn't know much about how to recognise different designs, but I described a PTC to him ( a kind of boxy style I told him) and he said they're some kind of open front design and said "They're like Lazy Boy recliners compared to the current trains" So maybe they're at least a more comfortable design, I just hope they don't kill the track like the G-Trains have been doing. They are handling the Cheetah with kid gloves it seems, only opening it after about 3:00pm. My guess is they are wanting to reduce the wear and tear on the refurbished track so it will be like new when the alleged new trains are added.

    Hangman seems to be losing some of its uncharacteristic smoothness( for a Vekoma SLC), though I'm sure its just some wear and tear issues that may be fixed soon. Bommerang is still the same as it normally is, though I noticed a lot of new rollers on it.Overall the new company seems to be doing great with this park, hopefully they keep it up.
    "I'm going off the rails on a crazy train"

    I guess I'm a OS X, Windows , Solaris 10 , Linux, and Unix fanboy. Did I miss any OS?

    The Cheetah news was important. Somehow I lacked both Hangman and Cheetah from that park.

    I just went to Canobie Lake Park in Salem, NH. It's a nice small park with a couple of coasters and other flat rides.

    The last park for me was Six Flags Fiesta Texas on Monday. Fun times.

    Edit to add:
    Technically, I was at Schlitterbahn on Tuesday, also fun times, but I'm not sure if we're counting waterparks in this thread.

    I spent a couple of hours at Six Flags Great Adventure last night and got on Batman, Dark Knight, Skull Mountain, and Nitro (2 times). Then we went back this morning and got on El Toro (3 times), Rolling Thunder (both sides), Runaway Mine Train, Bizarro, Superman, Great American Scream Machinem, Fly Me to the Moon, and Parachute Training Center. We're about to go back for a few more hours tonight. It's time for some flats!!!

    Today, Six Flags Great Adventure, my homepark. My first visit since mid-summer 2009. Hope to visit a few times this year; re-upped the season pass.
    My hardest earned credit is The Legend at Holiday World, first ridden 5.19.2012, exactly 1399 days after my first visit to Holiday World.
    Next up: Beech Bend/Kentucky Kingdom/Kings Island/Cedar Point

    Today I opened up my 2011 Amusement Park season with a trip FINALLY to Phantasialand for the first time since 1998. Got quite a few rides on Germany's only B&M inverter, Black Mamba. The front row and rear row are clearly the best seats. Strangely, this fairly new ride has quite a rattle to it. Despite that, I still think it is awesome. There are so many close encounters with the wall that tall people will fear for their legs! Overall I would put it top 5 worthy out of all the B&M inverters out there I've been on. On a side note, 13 years later, Mystery Castle is STILL the best drop tower/space shot out there, IMHO. It isn't the fastest or the tallest, but you throw in a pitch black room and you got yourself one heckuva ride!

    Idlewild. Never make the mistake the first time of missing the Mr. Roger's Neighborhood Trolley Ride. Never. Redemption my second visit. Rollie Coaster is the awesome inspiration for Boulder Dash too.

    Universal Studios Hollywood for the 1st time. Everything (except for Simpsons Ride, which was 15 min) was almost walk-on. Next stop: Disneyland from the 24th to the 27th this month.

    My local Six Flags Great Adventure today. First park after turning 30. There's no other park to go to than your lifelong homepark.
