Best Valentine’s Day Present EVER!!!

6 Apr

So, my amazing girlfriend got me the best Valentine’s Day present ever and I received it yesterday!

Due to back-orders and them canceling the order it is a few months late BUT it is SOOO worth the wait!

As I told you before I’ve been reading the Dexter books. I’ve read ALL four of them and I’ve seen every episode of the Showtime show. I love me some Dexter.

The BOX!

The Roller Coaster Trip Was Amazing!!!

9 Dec

The Roller Coaster Trio!

The trip was months ago, but it was amazing! Cedar Point won best park of the trip, but Six Flags Over Georgia and Kings Island were both great too! All the parks confirmed the need for a Hypercoaster to be built in Orlando. After being disappointed by Space Mountain’s lame refurbishment at WDW I tweeted (yea, I do that now) that they missed a great opportunity to build the first indoor Hyper!

My Vacation: Busch Gardens Williamsburg

1 Aug

Today we will be waking up early in Williamsburg, VA for our day at Busch Gardens Williamsburg Europe Williamsburg (They keep changing what they call it back and forth, very annoying). This will be my first visit to this Busch Gardens park!

My mom and I are Platinum Passholders for the Busch parks so we get to park and visit this park for free! WOO HOO! I’ve seen and heard about how amazing this park is themed and how great some of the coasters are, so I’m excited about this park. This will be our fourth and final theme park on this vacation!

To make today even better, I found that Busch offers a Behind The Scenes: Roller Coaster Experience tour!! We have our tickets to it, and it is going to kick ass!

The tour includes a ride up an elevator to the top of Griffon’s lift hill (205 feet in the air) for some photo opportunities! ERT (Extra Ride Time) on three coasters is also included.

Tomorrow we will heading back to Central Florida to end the trip! Sad times, but I look forward to sharing photos and reports from all of our stops!

My Vacation: Cedar Point!!!

29 Jul

Yup, last year we went to Cedar Point and this year we are making a return trip to “America’s Roller Coast.” Sandusky awaits us again and this time we are setting aside even more time at this roller coaster mecca!

Our plan will be to have arrived yesterday afternoon and after settling in to our cabin on the point (yes really!) we hopefully will spend a few hours after 5pm to get the blood flowing.

We are staying at Cedar Point’s own Lighthouse Point. These cottages are right on the “beach” of Lake Eerie and in the shadow of the coasters!

We will be able to easily walk over to the park for our stay! These cabins have grills and fridges and seat up to six!

This should be comfortable accommodations for the three days we will be here! We plan on stocking up on some food stuffs to save some money (and our waistlines) during this stop on our trip.

I really look forward to this stop. The coasters again and the cottage looks amazing! Look forward to my trip report on this!

The Vacation: Kings Island

27 Jul

Today we will be visiting park two of our trip!

You may remember that we planned on going to Kings Island on the way home from Cedar Point last year, but when plans changed, Kings Island was dropped.

That actually worked out since it made it a must see this year, and this year they opened a new coaster that looks amazing! DIAMONDBACK!

Diamondback is so amazing, it has its own website!

The Vacation: Six Flags Over Georgia

25 Jul

If you read yesterday, you know that today is the first day of my trip and we are spending the day at Six Flags Over Georgia! Amazingly, this will be my FIRST EVER trip to a Six Flags theme park!

Since I grew up in Orlando, spending summers visiting Busch Gardens, Sea World, Universal Studios and, of course, Disney was the norm, but I know for much of the country Six Flags is their local park. For me, the closest one has always been up near Atlanta and there really wasn’t anything to draw me all the way up there when I had parks so close.

15 May

I’m not sure why I haven’t written about this yet…So maybe I know why…

Manta is the newest roller coaster at Sea World Orlando and is Central Florida’s first “flying coaster.” It is also my first flyer! That is right, with all the coasters I’ve been on, I’ve never ridden on a flyer!
