    For those of us who are fatigued by the Brexit and General Election threads, I thought I'd create a completely new topic that doesn't involve politics.

    My question to you is...
    What are you looking forward to in 2020?

    Maybe you're visiting a long-awaited park for the first time, maybe you're hitting some bucket-list coasters or maybe you're just going back to somewhere that you loved again? Of course it doesn't have to be about parks and coasters either, so if there's some other event you can't wait for then let's hear all about it :D

    There's only one rule: no politics!

    Does playing Luigi's Mansion after receiving it as an Xmas gift count as something to look forward to?

    My 40th birthday - I was initially dreading this but it falls during Noisily Festival so I'm now looking forward to it. Will also be doing a trip to Europa either before or after.

    My 10th Glastonbury.

    Returning back to Ibiza after a 10 year break - slightly scared about this!

    I'm looking forward to in 2020

    1. When the themeparks re open for the seasons (also Scarefest and fireworks) :)
    2. Warmer weather (I don't mean a rise of temperatures on this seasons, I just mean the summer weather as we are now in cold weather winter season) :cool:
    3. The Rise of Skywalker Star Wars Movie, unfortunately I don't do cinemas no-a-days due to Jess needs, so I normally wait until the films come out on DVD. This is one movie that I can't wait to see :D

    Other than that, no much else

    I'm due to be starting a Mathematics degree with the Open University in February - finally going back into education after several years out.

    For me, it's heading back to Europa-Park. After my first ever visit this year and having such a great time, I decided to go back again next year. I'll be stopping over in both Bell Rock and Santa Isabel hotels :cool:

    I'll also be hitting a couple of new parks next year, probably Heide Park and Hansa Park. There's so many places I need to visit!

    You're assuming I wasn't planning that already? ;)

    Finally riding FLY, regardless of whether it ends up being somewhat of a family thrill coaster or not.

    Tornado Springs at Paultons.
    A park opening a new, fully themed area in the UK with a Mack spinning coaster.

    The Wonderful World of David Wa..... no, I can't even finish writing that one and keep a straight face :)

    Even though it's happening within the first days of 2020, I'm looking forward to going to Hyde Park Winter Wonderland for the first time to ride Olympia Looping and the other rides on 2nd January!

    I'm also looking forward to buying a Premium Merlin Annual Pass for the first time and visiting many of the country's parks more often, including my potential first visit to Alton Towers Fireworks!

    There's also a chance that I could be visiting Paultons for the first time to see Tornado Springs, so there's always that to look forward to if I get the chance!

    I know my list is entirely theme park related, but I'm sure something will come up that's non-theme park related for me to look forward to!

    Got a few gigs booked. Blossoms at Margate and then again in London. Also The Lathums (best new band out there at the moment, check them out).

    My 6th Glastonbury if I get tickets on the resale but that's a big if.

    Euro 2020 should be good as a lot of its at Wembley.

    Will probably do Wimbledon again.

    In terms of Theme Parks, Florida in September/October is all but booked. I'm strongly considering a last minute Phantasialand for early January. Would like to visit Europa Park again, maybe around April. Also Walibi Holland just to get back on Untamed.
