Como Town & Daytona Beach Amusements – CCCK Layover Adventures

Alexander: Being a flight attendant has many perks, not the least of which is getting paid to go places that happen to have roller coasters nearby!

My recent layovers to Minneapolis and Daytona Beach were fruitful in the credit department. Two new parks, two new coasters!

Darien Lake & Fantasy Island – CCK & CCCK Take the Northeast – Pt. 7 & Pt. 8

Alexander: It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you the parks of Buffalo, NY.

Let’s venture to the ‘sweetest place on earth’!  Continue reading “Hersheypark – CCK & CCCK Take the Northeast – Pt. 4”

Dorney Park – CCK & CCCK Take the Northeast – Pt. 3

Sean: The third park on our 10-park tour was the Cedar Fair property with three inverted coasters! (Sadly Possessed was closed all day). This regional amusement park was nothing to write home about… but it DOES have a very fun collection of rides we hold very dear, including Stinger and Demon Drop! Let’s find out what else makes this park so unique! Continue reading “Dorney Park – CCK & CCCK Take the Northeast – Pt. 3”
