I really appreciate your advice, but I'm already going to Dorney &
SFGAd. I've opted to go to Coney/Astroland because I want to see the
Thunderbolt before it's gone. Plus! My #2 Woodie - Viper at SFGAm (my
home park) is a clone of the Cyclone and I'd love to compare the two.
We actually have a huge trip planned... Thurs., July 23 - Sat., July 31

We'll be staying at a hotel near SFGAd, (which I still don't have an
answer to... any suggestions out there? Yes, I still have to check out
the WWLG, but if ANYONE knows of a good hotel, I'd really love to hear
your recommendation!) and we'll drive into NY on Fri. morning/early
afternoon, and driving back to the same hotel that evening/late
afternoon. Is the commuter bus accessible from there?
