Alexander: Following our ideal Dollywood day, Sean and I popped over to nearby NASCAR Speed Park so that Sean could get a ride on the park’s resident coaster, Speedway Drift.
NASCAR Speed Park was so kind to host us during our visit (especially since it’s a very expensive coaster credit), but we have some concerns about the park’s future. We hope that, if nothing else, their good customer service can keep them afloat.

Alexander: If you ask me, to two best places to be during the holidays are Disney or Dollywood.

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!

Alexander: Who’s ready for a whirlwind tour of the tiny parks of Northern California??
There’s so much personality and charm tucked away in these little spots; some of them we hadn’t even heard of before we planned this trip, but we’re so glad we took the time to visit each one!

Alexander: It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you the parks of Buffalo, NY.
(Just kidding. No it doesn’t)
With oddball regional parks, you roll the dice. Sometimes you win (Seabreeze), sometimes you lose (Dorney Park), and sometimes the dice spontaneously catch fire and explode (Buffalo Parks).
Shall we dive right in? Continue reading “Darien Lake & Fantasy Island – CCK & CCCK Take the Northeast – Pt. 7 & Pt. 8”
Alexander: The adventures continue with state #3 of the trip: up-state New York, in the lovely northern tip of Rochester, home to Seabreeze Amusement Park!
This classic coaster gem is a must-see for any coaster historian. Half of their roller coasters sport very unique and significant historic designations!

Sean: In this mix of our Northeast trip reports of some of the continent’s best theme parks and our NorCal trip to hit every coaster in the state of California, we now launch our report of our Six Flags Discovery Kingdom late-summer visit a few days back! The park was a bit of a struggle in the past season or two, but we had a wonderful time! Continue reading “Six Flags Discovery Kingdom – CCK & CCCK Take NorCal Pt. 2”
Alexander: Welcome back, peeps!
Everyone knows the East PA Big Three (we sincerely hope you enjoyed Sean’s coverage of these amazing major parks), but there’s more to East PA than KnoeDornShey.
Today we’re taking a look at an often overlooked but totally wonderful little park, Dutch Wonderland!

Sean: Time for park 4 on our trip around the Northeast! Perhaps my favorite regional park I’ve ever visited, though it may very well be considered a destination park… HERSHEYPARK! I had expectations, quite a few of them, and they were all exceeded. What a fun park with an abnormally solid lineup of coasters that are all unique in their own way! Let’s venture to the ‘sweetest place on earth’! Continue reading “Hersheypark – CCK & CCCK Take the Northeast – Pt. 4”
