Day 32: Interstate Tour 2018

Dorney Park - Allentown, Pennsylvania

Dorney Park - Allentown, Pennsylvania

It's been non-stop since Battle Ground, Indiana.  I've had scheduled events each day since June 22nd, starting with the Indiana Fiddlers Gathering. Went straight from there to Kentucky Music Week, hit that hard for five days and then went straight to The Garryowen in Gettysburg for my annual marathon 8 hour show.  

Talon - the only one I didn't ride.

With a few days before my next scheduled stop, I decided it was time to go hit another park and, since I've got the Cedar Fair Premium Pass, nearby Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania was a free ride for me, literally.

Well, they got me for oversized parking, which Cedar Point did not charge me for, so I'm miffed that, once again, Cedar Fair shows glaring inconsistencies from one park to another.  But $25 is a small price to pay for a day of riding the rails.

Surprisingly slow for the weekend before July 4th, I walked right onto all the rollercoasters except for Talon, which was experiencing technical issues and had a ginormous line that didn't look like much fun at all.

Having arrived mid-afternoon probably helped, as most people were thrashed out and laid-low from the crushing heat of the day.  

I shot some footage that'll be cobbled together for a segment on my Patreon.  

After riding everything, I slipped out of the park, drove around the corner and had some sushi, then went to a 9 pm screening of "Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom."  Meh.  It had its moments, but it was seriously boring for a JP film. I have to say that I'm interested in seeing where the next film will go, thanks to the post-credits scene.  Shamefully, yeah, I'd pay to see a movie about that. 

Ahhhh.  It was nice to decompress and have fun of a different kind today. But I've got a shit-ton of stuff to catch up with for Monday.  I'd figure a route in the morning and develop a plan after I slept in good.
