How fun. This looks like an awesome coaster. You guys looked like you had fun. I have one question, though.

And that rider would be me. It was actually myself & my friend Eric. LA Times nailed us wondering if we were from ACE. We said no, that we're from TPR. They'd never heard of TPR, but wanted to do the interview anyway. I'm the guy on the left in the little 2-man interview blip in the middle of the video doing the crappy hurried description. :P Any chance of someone saving that video to their computer harddrive so I could get a copy of it?

I also managed to score a ride with the NASA Astronaut Col. Rich Searfoss which was aired live on CBS morning news. Here's the link to that:
TPR on the morning news!
Unfortunately, no mention of TPR in that video.

I was also interviewed by KCAL, CBS, and KNX1070 in addition to LA Times, making me most likely to be the TPR Media Whore for the day. Doesn't matter, I still had a blast!

...and for those of you looking for pictures:
Robb digs free breakfast!

EDIT: There were a whole lot of us on the Revolution train that hit the loop with Tatsu flying overhead & fireworks n' stuff going off. ...but you already knew that Robb didn't you? ;)

I believe it was Don who made the Willy Wonka comment, and I think even the PR staff from six flags seemed to laugh at it. I love the videos I've seen. One question, where's paul reuben? I haven't seen footage of him yet. lol

That was funny, I liked the way he said it. We all had a good laugh


Best part of the campout.

Hahah.


I would have to agree I wish someone captured him while he was bouncing up and down saying it! I couldn’t stop laughing.


Man, I forgot I even did that! Thanks for reminding me. =)
Don't ask where I get this stuff, I just listen to the voices in my head.

I guess he's to old or he has breast cancer!


OMG, Paul Reuben got breast cancer! LOL :evil:

You know what's weird about the whole thing? The actual campout was completely pointless. I see no reason why we couldn't have just shown up at 4am to get our wristbands...BUT the campout was the best part of the day so whoo-hoo!

Even though I turned into a zombie around 6 am I had a blast! Thanks R&E and everyone, again. I have no idea how you guys pull all of this off!
Can we do this again for flashback's re-opening?

"Where are we going guys?"
"FLASHBACK!"
"TATSU!"
"Alright, where are we really going?"
"FLASHBACK!"
"Where are you guys going?"
"Space Mountain!"

Holy crap that's hilarious! I'm still really jealous of you guys!
