2014 plans??
« on: February 09, 2014, 11:39:15 PM »
I know it's only February but I'm bored and the off season is getting to me. I've planned out a few trips for early spring already...

Early April we're be visiting Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens for a weekend trip

Late May we're taking a road trip with several stops starting at Carowinds. Then driving to Pigeon Forge for my first time to hit Dollywood and Gatlinburg for 3 days and then packing up and heading to Holiday World for 2 days for Holiwood Nights. Kings Island will be visited the day after, and then we're driving back to NJ, maybe stopping at a park on the way home or my brothers in Columbus, Ohio depending on work/time.

Late June will be Kennywood, 2 days at CP and a morning at Michigan's Adventure followed by 5 days in the Electric Forest in Rothbury, Michigan. We may stop at Hershey or something on the way back from Michigan to break up the drive.

Anyone else have any plans they're excited about?

I'm currently unemployed, and won't be starting work again until July at the earliest so I figured... why not?

The only plans I have are going to KI/CP the first week of June. With the possibility of hitting Hershey on the way back home.

Having a job with vacation days has its perks.

^ I'll be at KI on June 1st!

I also kind of just added a trip down to Orlando to the plans for March 16-19.

I'm wondering still if I can get to Canada with you, you'll have to give me an exact date. I wanna try to get up to Story Land and Canobie in NH since they both have new rides I haven't been on yet, might as well stop at SFNE and LC on that trip too..

Already got Orlando in last week which included all the Disney parks and fun spot with a side trip to city walk and DTD. SanFran next week will include a visit to the Disney family museum. And I have Vegas coming up in May so circus circus most likely. After that I have no clue other than I actually got six flags passes this season (unlike 2013) so I'm hopeful for a few trips outside of Jersey to get my $$$ worth and Hershey is also every August for a work function :).

At this point I have no plans outside of Carowinds.  I lost my job in November because my new administrator felt that he wanted to rebuild the entire administration team from the ground up and although I 'did everything they've asked and am a hard worker', they wanted to go in a different direction, which meant hiring someone for far less money (and they're going to have twice the responsibility I did in a few months when they open a second building), with no experience.

Oh well.

So my current job doesn't pay enough for me to do much but Carowinds.  I'm looking for something else like crazy, and if I can get a better job, I'd like to do a few weekend trips:

Chicago
Dollywood
Kings Dominion
SFoG
and visiting my sister in Florida

We all have those years... best of luck getting through it and finding a job that works for you. I lucked out in that my last lite travel year was the year leviathan opened. That really softened the blow of not getting to any new parks for me.

Hoping to get to the new TGG woodie in New Hapshire. Otherwise Disney World is the main focus for this year, plus Knoebels of course.

I think I posted, but my plans have since changed a bit.. 4 nights at knoebels with the whole family and camping. No Hershey side trip this time around. Just knoebels. Also great america in the fall hopefully. After that likely a day trip to martin's or waldameer. Both if I'm lucky.

If you go to Waldameer, try to stop at Conneaut Lake. Could be your last chance. Amazing it's opening this year.

Yeah I should. I haven't payed any attention to that whole mess other than to know that it's a big mess. Once those people get kicked out is the park done or likely new ownership?

Matt - do you have a time of year you're thinking of going yet? Would love to ride Space Mountain with you if you're looking at late summer/early fall and further...

I get to leave for Orlando in less than one week now... I'm getting pretty pumped.

Also I may add KK to our Holiwood Nights trip, the new coaster MIGHT be ready by then... keeping my fingers, toes, arms, legs, and eyes crossed.

I think this may be the park's last shot.  Personally I don't care too
Much about the place. It's not like it's Geauga Lake. I haven't ridden the coaster since 1998 and I don't remember it being very good, but some people love it. I doubt you'd care much for it.

Disney trip will probably be over Labor Day weekend into the following weekend, but it's all tentative.

Blue streak is intriguing to me. I'd like to ride it. If I knew 100% this was it's last year I'd likely make it happen. But I wouldn't loose sleep over it.

It's not far from Waldameer, so if you can make Waldameer happen, get to Conneaut for an hour. Ride Devil's Den and Blue Streak. Maybe the Flyers. I had a crazy ride on rgeir flyers-almost hit the ride op (he leaped out of the way) and hit the motor shed really hard. :)
