This Summer go West

With Transformers and Cars Land, L.A. is the place to go for theme park fans.

Transformers looks great, and Cars Land looks amazing. I can't believe I will be strolling the town of Radiator Springs! As an extra pleasure one will get to see L.A. just as Walt saw it when he arrived for the first time (Buena Vista Street)

As Lightning McQueen would say, "California here I come"

^I'm not sure about that. It really depends on what the theme park fan is looking for. The latest 2012 additions in SoCal certainly are beginning to level the playing filed thematically, but California will always dominate the roller coaster side of things (though I must admit BGA has some great coasters).

We had plans to hit CA. this year but my Dad pushed it back to next year so that we can also hit the new GCI coster at Great America.

I expect the summer to be a complete madhouse. I will visit in the fall after the kids go to school.

Planning on going to Cali this year for the first time not sure if we should go in late summer or in november when the kids are off from school but any way still looking forward for these new attractions.
