I wish I could get back to the "Blair Witch Coaster." I was just telling my father about it tonight, during the football game. Do you think that was annoying to him?! Hahaha!

Bas, these pics absolutely rock...even if I'm only in 1 pic making a weird squinting face (Mad Mouse at Quassy, waiting for it to reopen) LOL

Edit: I forgot to mention my surprise that you didn't include the wheel-off-the-track-as-proof-of-extremeness-of-airtime shot of S:ROS.

^That queue shot was classic, I didn't really notice what was going on untill I was looking at the picture just before uploading.

And the "Wheels-off-track" shot was taken on SFNE-Day2, so that'll come in a few days or so.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

Bas, Great update!!! I just got completely caught up with your TR from the start of the ECT. And no, you didn't scare me with your attempts at getting the pic of Manhattan!!! (It was just a warning of the photo taking intensity to come! ;) )

Fantastic photos...I look forward to the rest of them. The trio day of the truly super Superman, Speed Bump, and Boulder Dash's homefront was one of the absolute best days of the trip. I remember being really shocked at how much we did in that one day...and then thinking how cool it was that it was still just the start of the trip!

I wish we were just heading out to Coney tomorrow!! :(

Hanno probably doesn't realize this but he has a similar shot in his trip report. Of course, he was taking pics of people *on* the ride, but I still noticed, eh hem, the gap.

Look closely and you'll see...

Actually, I just looked at his thread again, and someone else noticed it too.

^ there was a reason for me to zoom in a little more.. i did see that i captured the weel getting of the track.. just thought i'd say airtime and people would notice it by them self...

is more fun.. and if people don't see it.. well.. dan they don't care i guess...

And Yes Bas.. i like your pictures as well.. it shows (once again) that it's not all up to the gear you use.. but more to the person in control of the gear..

Keep the updates coming..
I'm dutch.. not much i can do about that

I wish I was, studying Mechanical Engineering takes up a lot of time, so I hope to have some time wednesday to make an update.

BTW, if you closesly to on of the photo's, you can already see the wheel going off-the-rails.
