Thanks for the comments!

Too much, maybe! Sometimes have to wait for a few coaster trains in order to get things timed out right, which means I'm standing on the midway for 5-10 minutes, knowing there's no line and I could be on the ride. :lmao:

Nothing super special. Canon T2i with the cheapo 18-55 and 55-250 lenses. I'm not always thrilled with the performance of the latter, especially at the far end of the zoom, so for every one good shot there may be 1-10 lousy ones I don't use.

Thank you for sharing your reports and photos! Your photos are phenomenal. Every once in a great while I miss living in Florida, reading this was one of those times :-P

I know more about donkeys than women!

This park is awesome if you can hit it on a slow day. And when the weather is not so bad. Feb and Oct, or Nov are good months. Weekdays if you can. I love the Lorikeets! Montu and Kumba are still very intense rides and have aged well. A question though, why has Universal replaced the Hulk track and Kumba's original track is still going strong? They are about the same age.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Banshee vs. Montu: IMO, Banshee wins, no contest. :)

Heads up by the way, don't go from 8/7 to 9/1.

Wonder if that means it's finally getting painted?
And yes, I'd like that job too.

I really hope this guy gets what he deserves:

Come one. Come all. Ride the roller coaster in my pants.

Hey just proves that it's not the camera that makes great pictures. It's the person behind it. =)
Also proves how well the T2i holds up today for a camera that was released 7 years ago!
