OK, now that the wedding is over, time to work on the Honeymoon.
The dates I am working with...
Coastermania at Cedar Point on June 4th and 5th
My Mother in Law's BD on June 14th (In Mississippi near the Tennessee border)
American Coaster Enthusiasts Coaster Con XXXIII which is from June 20th through the 26th.
The rough first look at dates and travel.
Arrive in Cleveland on the 2nd (Southwest, currently about $350 per person round trip with no baggage fees).
Get a rental car, about $750 for a full sized car without insurance, which we have through our own car insurance. About 2,000 miles of driving, so gas will be around $500.
Drive to Sandusky, OH that day and check in to a hotel (Cedar Point hasn't posted their rates for on-property hotels, but that would be out first choice, but might opt for an off-property hotel is they want an arm AND a leg). Since we have the Platinum Pass, we get Early Entry anyways, plus the Coastermania ERT's (15 hours worth!).
Check out on the 7th and drive to Kings Island in Mason, Oh.
Enjoy Kings Island on the 8th.
Get up early and drive to SF Kentucky Kingdom and enjoy the day, then keep going to Santa Claus, IN that night. (It is a small park, so we will just hit the Roller Coasters and maybe a few other things, heck, its free with out Six Flags SP). Heck, so far, free admission with our SoCal Passes
The 10th and 11th will be for Holiday World, I have never been there, and would like to take it slowly, and enjoy it. Heck, with free parking, free sodas and free sunscreen, it can't be too bad More than likely will try and find a package deal (not out yet) but otherwise will do it in parts.
Check out on the 12th, and head to Hernando, Mississippi for my Mother in Law's BD (she can't travel by plane anymore due to health reasons, so she missed the wedding).
Leave on the 15th to Pigeon Forge, TN
Spend the 16th at Dollywood
On the 17th, drive to the Charleston area and get a room for a night
The 18th is the second half of the drive, arriving in Pittsburgh.
The 19th will be a day off, maybe some time at Kennywood.
The 20th is the start of Coaster Con XXXIII, with the first stop at Kennywood.
Coaster Con has 4 parks, and goes through Saturday, June 26th.
Alas, due to work issues, we will board a return flight to John Wayne Airport on Saturday the 26th from Cleveland. So depending on the schedule and our flight time, we might drive to Cleveland on Friday the 25th, and get a room for one night, maybe near Geagua Lake and check out the water-park, and see what has happened to the park since the last time I went, when it was Six Flags, and they had just built the water park addition, and was still operating the "SeaWorld" side. Otherwise, drive to Cleveland on the 26th if we have a late flight. Alas, the full Coaster Con schedule has not been released yet.
So any hints on Hotel rooms, we are looking to be on the low side, so places like Motel 6 are fine (though we might also use Hotwire.com). WiFi is a MUST.
Also hints as to places to eat, see, etc....
Thanks in advance for any help....
