I'm glad to know that TPR enjoyed my homePark! Did you guys get donuts from the three shells just out side the park??? The best donuts in the world! I love Rage because it eats the line especially when there are three coasters on the track! I hope you enjoyed your ERT!

I am really happy you guys enjoyed my local park, I just wish I had known you were going there as I would have walked down but by the time I asked Robb it was to late :(.

What did you all think about Over the Hill?

Hope you enjoy the rest of the trip.
