2018 Plans?

Talk about anything that has to do with the amusement park industry here.
Postby RollingCoasting on December 2nd, 2017, 10:36 pm
2018 begins in a little under a month, and with it looking to be an incredible year for coaster additions, I figured many people on here would have some plans in the making.

Myself I'm hoping to visit at least 1 new major park, but my plans are usually made towards the end of April/May, so I'm unsure what that will be yet.

For sure though, I'll be doing:
Six Flags Great America
Mount Olympus

How about you guys?

For Sure:
Great America

Probably:
Mount Olympus
California's Great America
Knott's Berry Farm
Magic Mountain
Discovery Kingdom

Maybe:
Silver Dollar City
Six Flags Over Texas
Six Flags St. Louis
Valleyfair

It's still a toss up for most as the Cal trip could change.

100%: SFGAm

Probably: Santa's Village, Little Amerricka, and some other smaller places in the area

Hopeful, but not for sure: Mt. Olympus and other Wis Dells stuff.

I'm looking into it: KI and CP, maybe adding in KK to sweep those creds up

My plans
For sure
SFGAm
Cedar Point
Kings Island

Maybe
NYC or Texas trip

This will be a friends trip so we're trying to all decide which one we do.

Cedar Point (Steel Vengeance)
Kings Island
Kentucky Kingdom
Holiday World

Adventureland
1.) Steel Vengeance 2.) Maverick 3.) Goliath (SFGAM) 4.) Top Thrill Dragster 5.) Mystic Timbers
Ragin Cajun and Iron Wolf went from Six Flags Great America to Six Flags America. I guess they weren't GREAT anymore.

Be sure at St. Louis to do Xcalibur; Odd ride but a Fun one
If you have someone who's scared of heights, Put them on Crow's Nest; It's 60ft and not too bad.
If you love Water Rapids Rides, Do Thunder Canyon at Cedar Point; Most of the others don't get you that wet
Adventureland does not offer an all-day-free-refills drink cup
For Holiday World, Walk (A Long Way) to Thunderbird cause it's the farthest from the entrance and work your way back
I haven't been since 2005 but as I remember Michigan's Adventure doesn't heat the water in the waterpark
I don't know if you knew this, But I marked the Cedar Fair parks; I'd suggest the Season and Dining Passes
If you don't do the Waterpark, Michigan's Adventure is 1/2 day at best.
Wildebeest and Mammoth start at ground level and have single-rider-lines.

Thanks for the advice. I will do all of that except Xcalibur. Not really a huge spinning ride guy but thanks.

Six Flags Mexico tips:
You won't get free cups of water or free refills with your sports bottle. You get 1 fill and that counts as your "snack"
Ride the rapids and you'll get little boy statues peeing on you
You will probably love the Medusa and Joker queue lines, Also you will be jealous of the Superman line.

^ Sea World is a LOT of fun! Make sure you see the comedy show there. It was a blast! My daughter got called up and she shook "hands" with a sea otter! I liked Manta much better than our Superman due to the extra 2 elements and the close calls with the water and the rocks. Kraken was great too and you go underground 3x. Mako wasn't there yet but it looks good! And Journey to Atlantis was fun.
