I got to attend Hersheypark the summer that Fahrenheit was brand new. I absolutely loved the park and the town of Hershey. The park had such a great charm I wasn't expecting before attending. I would love to go back.

Well, I was there when they made it official that they were expanding the park on the old golf course. So, it was a big news item on the local TV news. Anywho, I really liked the park, a bit disjointed with how they placed the water park aspects but I'lll let them them get the new master plan out and see what they add.
I sew them really using their branding more like you have seen with the Reeces dark ride and the towers. A Twizzlers coaster?

Im waiting in line for flying turns at Knoebels right now. This place is everythin I hoped it would be. Its already probably my second favorite place on earth after SDC. Ill have to gush more about it when im at a keyboard, lol.

Dorney was surprisingly good as well yesterday. They have so much history that has been thrown away, but there are a few historical rides there and Talon is fantastic.

I just got back from South Carolina a couple weeks ago. We were helping my sister and her husband move to Columbia. We stayed for a week and called it "vacation" so we weren't driving 12 hours one way just to drop off furniture.

My husband and I are going to Six Flags Great America October 13-14 for our anniversary. He used to live in Gary, IN and that was the Six Flags he grew up with. He's excited for me to see it and he hasn't been in YEARS.

My sister and I are tentatively planning to meet in Nashville sometime in November. Nashville is pretty much right between where I live and where she now lives.

I had previously mentioned before that I would be going to Six Flags Great America. We got back around 12:30 this morning.

It was a lot of fun! We rode almost all of the roller coasters and this is a perfect place for anyone who loves roller coasters! I was very impressed by almost all of them.


It was cold outside but at least it wasn't raining like the day before. We didn't have to stand in lines for very long all morning. But when we came back after getting lunch, it was packed!

We rode Superman Ultimate Flight. On that ride, you sit in the seat then it rotates so you're facing the ground and you ride the ride like how Superman flies. We were about to come back into the station and were in the holding area where you wait for the car in front of you to leave. We hear an announcement about "technical difficulties." We had to wait for almost 10 minutes, staring at the floor, until they got the ride up and running again. We got a free Flash Pass because of it, which got us on Goliath without having to wait the 85 minutes that the sign said it would take!

Goliath is definitely my favorite ride there. Its made by the same company as Outlaw Run and has the wooden structure with metal tracks. I do like Outlaw Run more though... We needed to start heading home after Goliath. We saw some of the Fright Fest parade before leaving but there was no way to really watch it because the crowd was insane.

I have all of the pictures up on my Facebook page. If you want to see them, you can add me as a friend:

(My husband doesn't want the album made public. He has some people he'd rather not associate with through Facebook anymore... It's a long story.)
