USA 2018 - Let's Go Round Again
Dates: Friday 1st June to Sunday 17th June 2018
As part of the RCCGB's 30th anniversary celebrations, 'USA 2018 - Let's Go Round Again' will depart the UK on Friday 1st June and return on Sunday 17th June 2018 where over 70 club members will be enjoying over 100 different coasters in over 10 of America's best theme parks.
Parks will include Knoebels, Cedar Point, Kennywood, Kentucky Kingdom & Dollywood. That means they will experience Top Thrill Dragster, Phantom's Revenge, The Beast, Lightning Rod and my favourite Woodie, The Phoenix! And that's just a few of the dozens of amazing coasters on the tour. We will also be arranging loads of ERS's (Exclusive Ride Sessions) throughout the tour as well.
We've setup a dedicated page for information about this trip as it develops. You can click here to go to it, or use the quicklink button at the bottom of the homepage!
SORRY, BUT THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS FOR THIS TRIP HAS PASSED
Summer Bash 2018
This is normally a small 'meet-at-the-park' type event where over 50 coaster crazy people simply turn up and have fun. The destination for this trip is unknown at the moment. During lunch at Loopathon 2017, Nev asked people where they would like to go and many suggestions were called out, so watch this space as we move into the new coaster season in 2018.
Dates: Friday 10th thru Sunday 12th August 2018
Location: Oakwood Theme Park, Pembrokeshire, UK
“Pren yn dda?” Or in English “Wood is good!” Yes it's time to head to Wales for some Mega-Tastic fun over an action packed three days! On the Friday we visit Folly Farm, Saturday it is the main event at Oakwood and on Sunday the annual Go-Kart challenge at Hetherton's.
Dates: Saturday & Sunday 6th/7th October 2018 (TBC)
Location: Alton Towers & Drayton Manor, UK
Yes it’s our annual loopy weekend where will spend Saturday at Alton Towers and Sunday at Drayton Manor.
Details of the trip will be available nearer the time, but this year, we have the fabulous new woodie at Alton Towers to ride! After 20 years of campaigning to Alton Towers, they have finally done it! This will make this one of the best Loopathon's ever - riding a real wooden coaster at Alton Towers (so we've renamed the trip Woodathon!) - what a great way to celebrate the clubs 30th Anniversary!
More details will be provided when known.
