[Planning] West Coast Parks

Trip Outline:

I just booked a flight for a week Road Trip with my Dad to hit some National Parks and, of course, the bigger coaster parks.


  • Red Rock Canyon
  • Death Valley National Park
  • Sequoia National Park
  • King's Canyon National Park
  • California's Great America (Cedar Fair)
  • Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk
  • Discovery Kingdom (Six Flags)
  • Yosemite National Park
  • Magic Mountain (Six Flags)
  • Knott's Berry Farm (Cedar Fair)

Couldn't fit in Joshua Tree National Park, Sea World San Diego, or Channel Island National Park - just ran out of time. Also, the list may need to be changed because of wild fires in the area (dry September 2021)

Anchor Airports:

LAS (Los Vegas) -- I know, not really an anchor for the coasters but only direct flight we could get

LAX (Los Angeles)

SFO (San Francisco)

Any thoughts/ideas? Sound off in the comments....
