Vote of the week: How many parks did you visit?
One of the issues raised by the recent TPI Best Ride in America Tournament
, was the discomfort than some readers felt about voting on match-ups involving rides they hadn't been on.
Which... inspired me to ask this particular question for the vote of the week:
Granted, an Orlando trip allows someone to knock off seven parks in one go (we're not counting water parks here). And keep in mind that we're just asking for the past 12 months here, not how many parks you've visited all time.
Tell us where you've been, in the comments.
Yeah, technically it's been 6, but that's thanks to WDW and Universal Studios Orlando. I rarely visit my "hometown" park, Wonderland, anymore, although Cedar Fair took over and they are introducing a new coaster this summer - Behemoth. Might be worth a trip.
The Disney parks and my hometown park Busch Gardens Europe sooo 5
Of course all mine are in Florida as well...
Only one: BGE
SF Discovery Kingdom
Lets see here:
OK don't laugh at what we consider visits.
2007 was a down year for me - only 8 parks.
In the past year, just five: the four WDW parks and Hersheypark. Ask me in a year and it should be 8 -- the previous five, plus BGE, Disneyland, and DCA.
Well, I only got 4 this year, but thats ok for me. I ususally avrage that, so i'm not disappointed. I only got KD, Hershey, BGE, and SFA. I'm glad I got to 4 different companies though. THAT'S AWESOME!
I'm shocked at how high these results are. I mean, I average maybe between 0-1 a year, typically. Every few years, an Orlando trip boosts that, and that's because my buddy owns a Disney Vacation Property so I get free lodging.
In May of last year we did the whole Orlando scene....two full weeks of glorious theme park Heaven. Oh yeah, and we hit our local Cedar Fair park, Worlds of Fun (yippee).
8 major parks:
Both Busch Gardenses. Oh, and a trip to Emeril's Orlando, but that doesn't count for theme park...just great food!
I visited 13 and I am trying to keep a running total of at least 12 every 12 months.
I've had the lamest 12 months in memory for theme park trips this year. Just five parks:
The parks I visited in the last 12 months are... in the order they were visited:
Ok heres the list for 2007:
List of parks visited in the last 12 months.
I had a good year. I went to Orlando in Octiober '07 and visited:
In the past twelve months, I have been to five amusement parks.
Last year it was 15 different parks, but that was an exception. We did a family road trip in August in which we hit 13 parks in three weeks - think Griswold family vacation. This year it will only be our local park at Valleyfair.
In the past 12 months I've been to:
