    Sorry if there's already a thread like this or if it's unwarranted, but I would be interested to know; have any of you got any nice theme park trips planned in 2019? I'll get the ball rolling with my personal 2019 trip plans:
    Definite
    • Florida/Walt Disney World (9th-19th April 2019) - I'm headed back to the USA in April 2019, and I'm super excited! Me and my family are headed to the 6 Walt Disney World parks, and there's going to be so much to experience! We'll be going to Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Blizzard Beach for the first time, it'll be my first visit to Epcot as an enthusiast and we'll be going back to Animal Kingdom and Typhoon Lagoon after 5 years of not going! It's sure to be a great holiday, and I personally can't wait for it!
    Possible
    • Return visit to Drayton Manor (June/July 2019) - I've discussed with my parents about a return visit to Drayton Manor next year during the period between when my GCSEs end and the start of school trip season, so I'm hoping I can return and get on rides like Stormforce 10, The Haunting, Maelstrom and Sheriff's Showdown for the first time, as well as reriding some other Drayton attractions!
    As it is October 2018, other things could well happen, but those are my current ideas.

    So, are you guys up to anything interesting next year?

    This year was a pretty empty year for me after a pretty hectic 2017. 2018 I've only done 7 trips, no new parks either. This is the first year in 4 years I haven't done 3+ new parks, and over 10 trips.

    2019
    May - Tayto
    Late June July - (alongside Assen MotoGP) Efteling and Walibi Holland (any other decent parks on a road trip to Holland through Belgium recommended
    September - Disneyland Paris
    Some other time (either summer or Oct half term) Europa Park and Phantasialand possibly on return.

    That's at least three new parks
    Phantasialand is 50/50 but the Netherlands parks are getting booked by Christmas.

    Drayton, Flamingo Land, Thorpe, Lightwater are all going to be revisited after at least two years (excluding thorpe) and multiple trips to BPB and Towers when I have spare time.

    Done with Towers, not sure I'll bother next season except fireworks. I'm hoping to box at least a couple on the continent to get some of the obvious gaps on my list filled. Getting back to Europa is also high on the list. Unfortunately 2019 is shaping up to be quite so not sure how successful that'll be.

    Still got my first trip to Europa Park in a weeks time but for 2019 hopefully...

    Liseberg, and maybe fit in Kolmarden and Gronalund
    Walibi Holland and Belgium, maybe another park in that vicinity.
    Phantasialand, and maybe Movie Park.

    In the UK, BPB and Towers. Plus hopefully finally get to Flamingo Land and Lightwater Valley. Maybe even Oakwood.

    Welcoming in the New Year at Europa yet again.

    Considering the most exciting investment Merlin are opening next year is a madhouse at LLW, I'll be attempting to avoid all their parks and experience some actual decent new attractions.

    Phantasialand is a given for FLY, will probably pop into Movie Park to do Star Trek as well and tie in Efteling and Toverland. Walibi Holland wouldn't go amiss for their RMC either.

    Then I suppose there's the road trip around the States. Steel Curtain tbh.

    Walabi Holland as soon as the RMC opens.

    Then one of the following...

    A) California - SFMM, Knott's, Disney, Universal.

    Pro's - beaches, weather, Disney (for me, but more importantly the Mrs)
    Cons - £££

    B) North East USA - SF: Great Adventure, Hersheypark, Cedar Point, Kings Island.

    Pro's - Coasters
    Cons - long drives

    Leaning more towards option B at the moment as Cedar Point has been on the bucket list since Dragster opened.
