    Okay, so a little update - as my plans are a little firmer now (with the official CF-Live bit in blue):

    Sat 11th June - Fly into Louisville
    Sun 12th June - Chilling in Louisville, bit of culture and chilling
    Mon 13th June - Holiday World/Kentucky Kingdom
    Tues 14th June - Dollywood
    Wed 15th June - Carowinds

    Thurs 16th June - Chilling in Charlotte, bit more culture and chilling
    Fri 17th June - Travel to Richmond, VA
    Sat 18th June - Pick up a car in Richmond and do some national park/forest/outdoorsy things nearby
    Sun 19th June - Busch Gardens Williamsburg
    Mon 20th June - Kings Dominion
    Tues 21st June - Head up to Philadelphia
    Wed 22nd June - Culture and chilling in Philly
    Thurs 23rd June - Culture and chilling in Philly
    Fri 24th June - Fly home

    So, my questions to you guys:
    1. Will you be able to swing by somewhere in Louisville on your way to Holiday World? Where will you be driving from, where will you be staying the night before etc?
    2. Will you be able to drop me off somewhere downtown in Charlotte after Carowinds?
    3. Any thoughts on which park is better to do on the Sunday or Monday out of BGW and KD?

    All for now! Very excited already... :lol:

    Absolutely we will swing and pick you up, I'm assuming we will probably be staying in Columbus area and head out early that morning. Based on the numbers that actually go, we may just minivan in, because what can go wrong with 7 people in a vehicle with a TV in the back?

    Same thing with Charlotte, we can drop you off wherever...just not some ungodly morning hour as I assume we won't be up early that day.

    Put me down as maybe.

    Also, you might want to mark that Holiday World is Central time, not Eastern. That could influence planning.

    Anyone up for Ghosterforce USA?

    I could Ghosterforce, but it would have to be somewhere way closer than Six Flags Great America

    Perfect, as long as the idea works in principle we can sort out the details a little closer to the time.

    I wasn't sure if you'd start the trip back home after Carowinds and stop somewhere along the way, so if you're planning on having a night in Charlotte that sounds perfect!

    I was definitely intending on staying in Charlotte for the night. It's gonna be a long three days and I'll have no desire for a long drive back immediately after. A night out in Charlotte will be the perfect night cap!

    ^Fab.<3

    Just picking up on this too:
    I hadn't noticed that actually, good spot. We'd be in one of those situations where we leave Holiday World, drive for an hour and arrive at Kentucky Kingdom at the same time we left Holiday World. :lol:

    ^That wouldn't happen as we'd be moving from Central to Eastern. :D

    However if we did the reverse, then yes. That's possible. <3

    Doesn't the way you've got it now with the time difference mean you've got like eight hours to do both parks and the drive between them?

    Obviously it's your trip but... Hmm...

    ^After Snoo pointed out my mistake with the time differences, this had occurred to me.

    I feel like it would make more sense to do KK first, then go on to HW. That way round we have 10 hours including the drive...

    Yeah, ten hours is fine, four hours at each park should be plenty, but three hours a park ewww.

    I'm really jealous everyone gets to ride fabulous Fury btw.

    It's OBSCENE.

    The one "issue" is driving right back through Louisville to go to Dolly, but I can think of worse things than that.

    Thing is, you're going to be coming through Louisville either way, right?

    I'm probably in the USA at this time... And whilst the whole trip is definitely a no, its not entirely out of the question that I might show up for one of the days. We shall seeeeeee! :)

    Well considering the only thing they've added since my trip six years ago is an inverted Boomerang, I don't think I can be bothered to make the trip to be honest... :lol:
