2006 will prove to be a landmark year for a number of reasons. I’ve already crossed the century mark riding my 100th coaster and visited the most heralded park around (Cedar Point). During the rest of the season I will face the tallest, fastest, and most highly rated coasters in the world. Good thing they’re all near the East Coast!
In July, I will ride what is arguably the most talked about coaster of 2006, Voyage at Holiday World. While I’m in the area, I’ll pick up a cheap season pass from Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom (which will come in handy later in the summer) while I check out that subpar park. At Dollywood, I’ll ride the highest rated wooden coaster around in Thunderhead. And on my New York trip I will ride THE MOST FAMOUS coaster of all time, the Cyclone at Astroland in Coney Island. Then in September, as long as it’s running, I will ride the tallest and fastest coaster on the planet (Kingda Ka) and the other most talked about coaster of the season, El Toro. El Toro supposedly flaunts a steel-like smoothness and the steepest drop on a wooden coaster. Wow. What a year!
