2014 plans are still being finalized, but I can say for sure I will be visiting the Disneyland Resort, Knott's Berry Farm, and Six Flags Magic Mountain as I have passes to all three. As for other trips away from my home of Southern California, I've got several tentative ideas:
-I'll be traveling to Lincoln, Nebraska for a school event in June (FSAE Electric to be more specific). Assuming it doesn't cause issues, I plan to turn this into a road trip. At the very least I'll stop by the Denver parks, but depending on route and budget the trip could also include Worlds of Fun, Silver Dollar City, and/or a few smaller parks. It will end with a few days in Las Vegas, which is somewhat of a giant adult theme park in itself.
-I am currently signed up for a group trip in July that will start in Cincinnati and end in Chicago, stopping at Kings Island, Kentucky Kingdom, Holiday World, Indiana Beach, Six Flags Great America, and one or two small parks along the way. I'm also considering adding a couple days at Cedar Point at the beginning of the trip as it has been a long time since I last visited. If I only do one trip this summer, this will be the one.
-I am considering a second group trip in August (immediately following the previous trip) that would go from Harrisburg to New York, with stops at Hersheypark, Knoebels, Dorney Park, Six Flags Great Adventure, and a few days in New York for random sightseeing stuff at the end. This one is less likely as doing both trips would be pretty expensive and the other is more appealing to me.
-Finally, this one isn't all that likely but I'm considering visiting the Northern California parks (California's Great America, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom) again. I was just up there last year, but as I missed out on a couple rides due to issues and I could stay at my relatives' house for free I may make a long weekend trip out of it.
As I'll be graduating college this year, I'm using Summer 2014 to do as much as I can before I have to start working full time, as I doubt I'll get a significant vacation for several years afterward.
