The Best Little Credit Whore In Japan

I really didn't want to title this Tokyo Joypolis, Yokohama Cosmo World, and Sea Paradise Trip Report 9/27/18. That's just too long and boring of a title for a trip report to three parks in one day...but that's basically what this blog post is. First park of the day was Tokyo Joypolis, Sega themed theme … Continue reading The Best Little Credit Whore In Japan

For the second full day of East Meets ACE, we started off the day at Toshimaen with ERT on all three coaster plus the powered coaster.

Hershey Park & Knoebels Trip Report 8/2/18

We arrived at Hershey right at opening! Like Kentucky Kingdom, Cedar Point employees get free admission to the park! First up, Thigh Crush...Sky Rush! For our first ride, we went front row.

Next was SooperDooperLooper … Continue reading Hershey Park & Knoebels Trip Report 8/2/18

Kentucky Kingdom & Kings Island Trip Report 7/24/18

After driving all night, we finally made it to Kentucky Kingdom!
