June was easily our biggest month ever with epic reports, media days, videos and updates from 7 states and two countries. We thought we'd put together a little review in case you missed anything or would like to revisit any of our reports.
Click on any of the pictures or links below to see the individual reports.
Be sure to follow along on Wednesday July 2nd as we'll be at Media Day for Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom at Six Flags Great Adventure.
Our month technically started off at the end of May with a trip report and video from one of the most highly anticipated coasters of 2014, El Loco at Adventuredome Las Vegas.
This was also the first park of a trip that would take us to some great parks.
One of the more out of the way parks that you never hear much about is Glenwood Springs Adventure Park in western Colorado. If you are heading from Utah or Grand Junction up to Denver, this is right off the highway and is a great place to spend a few hours, or even an entire day.
Be sure to check out the cave tours during your visit.
Adventureland Park in Altoona, IA was always one of those parks I wanted to visit but never thought I'd be passing through the middle of nowhere America. When I had the opportunity to go I did and I absolutely loved this out of the way park.
Filled to the brim with charm, some great rides, incredible staff ... this is a park that you should make sure you end up in the middle of nowhere America to enjoy.
It had been 10 years since Six Flags Hurricane Harbor - Los Angeles had a new attraction (Tornado in 2004) so it was LONG overdue.
Not only are the two new Bonzai Pipeline slides great but the entire park has received some much needed TLC and looks amazing.
Come for the new slides, stay for the rest of the park.
Six Flags Great America outside of Chicago is one of my personal favorite Six Flags parks. Even though we didn't get a chance to ride Goliath during our visit in May our visit was still incredible.
X-Flight was new to me so lots of cool pictures are included with this report.
We also had a video and pictures of Goliath's opening a few weeks later.
One of our few actual "Construction updates" in June came from Universal Studios Hollywood. Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, Hogsmeade, Springfield and Fast and Furious continue to take shape.
Also, an old favorite is back on the tram.
We had two great updates from Knott's Berry Farm this month.
First was our Media Day report for the new Mine Train and Camp Snoopy featuring some pictures of the events that always come with a great media day put on by a great park.
Next up was the Private Event for the people who actually worked on the rides that the park was kind enough to invite us to. Lots more Mine Ride and Camp Snoopy pictures.
Switching gears a bit, we headed to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum for Fathers Day.
The current temporary exhibit is titled "Baseball" and is truly amazing for anybody who is a fan of the Great American Past Time.
The exhibit runs through September so be sure to check it out.
Six Flags St Louis opened up their fun new family attraction Tsunami Soaker in May and we happened to be at the park just a few days later.
Even though we felt the layout of this park was kind of confusing (could be because of tiredness) we had a great time and this is one of the more well-rounded Six Flags parks with lots for everybody including a few great coasters.
Six Flags Magic Mountain not only opened up the all-new Speedy Gonzales: Hot Rod Racers and refurbished Bugs Bunny World this month but they also invited us out for a special ride on Colossus as it begins it's last few months of operation in it's current form.
If you have smaller kids be sure to check out the new coaster and re-done Bugs Bunny World. We were very impressed with the results.
And of course, be sure you get your last rides on Colossus as it will end it's run on August 16th.
Great friends of the site Cliff and Stephen invaded Six Flags Mexico this month hoping to ride the all new Medusa Steel Coaster.
Unfortunately the ride didn't open during their visit but that doesn't mean we don't have lots of great pictures of the ride and the rest of the park in this great report.
Last but certainly not least, reader Scott sent us the following trip report from Star Wars Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
Lots of great pictures of the characters, celebrities and even the fantastic fireworks show.
This event is sure to expand even more in the next few years.
