    So, it's a new year, and I'm wondering if anyone is traveling anywhere fun and exciting in 2016?

    I'm going to Barbados in like 2 weeks, and I'm going to NYC for the Governor's Ball music fest in June. That's the only non-work related travel I have planned. I went out of the country last year, so I'm gonna try to save my money and stack up more PTO lol. Plus I have Beyoncé tickets to buy lol.

    Trying to go to LA with @KritiKal Analysis Imma have to go to Magic Mountain but I'll be opening and closing the park so that would be something I'd do on my own and catch up with them afterward or before depending on how that works out.

    That's pretty much it. Maybe Carowinds or Cedar Point if I find cheap flights. Trying to get a house so my money is really not out there like that this year for too much travel but next year....

    I have *very limited* budget for travel this year, but I want to go to so many places :mjcry1: .

    Might end up somewhere in Europe and/or somewhere in East Africa. Otherwise, it'll be my usual travel to visit fam on the east coast

    I love roller coasters SO much, I'm bad about going to amusement parks though. I essentially only go to the ones in cities I'm already visiting. I've never gone somewhere just for an amusement park, nor have I been on any of the noteworthy ones. *Sigh*

    If you love roller coasters you must find a reason to go to Cedar Point. If possible, hit Kings Island (20 miles North of Cincinasti) and then hit up Cedar Point(on Lake Erie about midway between Cleveland and Toledo). I think Cedar Point still has the most roller coasters of any amusement park. I have not been to Cedar Point in a while and I need to find someone here willing to go up there.

    I remember way back when Cedar Point still had the Jet. I was too young to ride it. They got rid of it because it had a strange tendency to occasionally break the left arm of riders. lol

    You should find someone to go. They have added so much in the last 20 years.

    Were you a little kid? I went the first year it opened. You can't remember if you rode the famous 'Beast'?

    Best time I ever had there was senior night in High School. The pot smoke was so thick it was just a cloud over the park. All kinds of people snuck alcohol in and everyone was drinking and high(even if you were not smoking, it was so thick in the air you could not help it) riding the rides, having fun. No fighting, all kinds of people there all getting along. The rides all stayed open very late and I think they let the coasters go a little extra fast.

    Of course this was before the official 'war on drugs' and the mandated safety/government- as- parent state that we live in now. Things are much better now, but there are some things they should have just left alone! lol

    @ColumbusGuy I have been. But it's been a long time ago. The year Top Thrill was opened. I love Millennium Force, Raptor, and Magnum. Since Carowinds is not too far from Atlanta, I'd have to plan to do both since I could get a season pass to maximize my spending but I would have to really commit to both parks for that to be worth it since there's no other Cedar Fair branches around. My Six Flags pass will be used here plus White Water so I have some value out of that.

    @tigerbreaux I less than 3 theme parks so if a city doesn't have one, I'm not likely to look forward to visiting it. Meaning I'll still go but I do factor that in. Parks are really the only touristy thing I like to do in cities bc like to eat where the locals eat and do what they do. Though I will see landmarks but that won't be my main gig.

    @SB3 the next time I'm in the NYC area , I will be all up in Jackson, NJ at six Flags.

    I really want to visit France, Denmark, Hungary, Madrid, Austria this year. Preferably two at least, if I can save up the funds.

    I'm heading to Reykjavik, Iceland for a few days solo next month to explore and then to London for a week to chill with some friends. Any squad members in Iceland?

    Iceland is definitely on my bucket list. had a layover there for a few hours and fell in love. I flew Iceland Air and whoever does the marketing for Iceland does a damn good job. You can even delay your layover for up to 7 days with no penalty! I have friends who've gone and say it's great. Love London, such a cool place, but really big, and expensive. The pound is no joke!

    Oh yeah. I'm flying Iceland Air and taking advantage of the free layover and staying there 3 days. If I were not staying with friends in London there's no way I could afford it right now. Like you said the pound is no joke! Can't wait to get over there.
