    ^You could fill a week long vacation with just PA parks. PA has 12 locations and 51 coasters (second only to California) with Steel Curtain it will be 52. By the end of this season we will have ridden all but one. Conneaut Lake does not allow adults on their kiddie. Maybe at an event some day we will get it. LOL KW, Knoebels, Dorney and Hershey are the big players and would be worth the trip alone. But some of the smaller places like Dutch Wonderland and Idlewild are very quaint and also worth a stop, while Waldameer in Erie has one of our favorite wood coasters. That would be quite a vacation to hit them all but it is do-able.

    I’m starting to hit more and more of PA each year and I absolutely love the parks. I did Dorney 2 years ago, knoebels last year, and I’m doing Hershey, Dutch wonderland, and possibly sesame place in about a week and a half. Hopefully I’ll get to Pittsburgh soon!

    Kennywood and knoebels are my staple parks that are a must every year, even if they don't add a new attraction. I was at both in june and since thomas town wasn't open when i was there i get the best of both worlds next year!

    I'd love to make a trip like that not sure if I could get enough free time to do it. Isn't Dorney rumored to be getting a relocated coaster or new coaster next year as well. Maybe do 2 or 3 parks one trip. Looks like Sesame place would be a quick hit but it's way overpriced.

    Parts for the coaster have started to arrive, looks like they are not wasting any time.
