Fireworks over Cinderella Castle: an image that has become synonymous with Disney Parks and the Disney company as a whole. From 2003 to 2017, Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams, was the nighttime fireworks show that would wow guests every night in the Magic Kingdom. I loved this show. I have many good memories of watching it, and was sad to see it go. When it was announced that Wishes would be retired, I had a very high standard for the show that would replace it. Does Happily Ever After meet this standard? Did we the fans get an upgrade or a downgrade? Here are my thoughts:
On Monday, July 31st, my family and I visited Carowinds, a Cedar Fair theme park located on the border of North and South Carolina. We spent about 6 hours at the park, which was more than enough time to ride all of the coasters (minus the kiddie coasters). In fact, because the day seemed so much longer than usual and I took so many pictures, I figured this trip report should be split up into two parts. The link to part 2 will be at the bottom of this page, once it comes out. In the meantime, here’s part 1!
On Tuesday, April 18th, I took first ever trip to Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. The park is home to a whopping 19 roller coasters, and I planned on getting on as many as possible.
After lots of speculation, SeaWorld Orlando has announced its new-for-2018 attraction: an Intamin water rapids ride named Infinity Falls.
Today we’re reviewing California Screamin’, a launch coaster at Disney’s California Adventure.
Essentially what I’ve created here is a list of my predictions for what new attractions we’ll see at different North American theme parks in 2018. Keep in mind, all of these predictions are a mere combination of guessing and hoping. Even though I think something is going to happen next year, doesn’t mean it actually will.
