  1. Just an FYI, if you are visiting other Springfield's when you cross 10,000 Goo, go back to your own and build the gingerbread house before you finish visiting other Springfield's. I missed out on credit for 200 goo towards donuts because I finished visiting before building.


    Also, if you can put gremlins in my Springfield, you'll get the full 4 goo for them because I will not pop them.

  2. ^ Maybe try putting Barts treehouse into inventory and then putting it back. Just the first idea that came to mind. Hope it works.


    After posting this went into the game and Ned Flanders was missing. Put his house into inventory and then back and he popped right up.


    On another note, can you say "Homer overload!" How many tasks can one character need to complete at once?

  3. A HUGE thank you to Matt (attack7). That was a wonderful surprise to get a random donation from a TPR member to start my fundraising. I've been so busy at work the last week and a half that I haven't had a chance to really get started. This week will start my email and phone call blitz to everyone I know.


    My son is also going to be Coasting for Kids, if someone could add him to the list for Worlds of Fun team TPR, his page is www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/erichpatton/worldsoffun.


    Thanks again Matt you have made my day!!!!!!

  4. I was there yesterday as well. Oh yeah, Oh yeah, do the wave! Ops were terrible, but I must say it was a much more enjoyable time than my last trip to SFOG in 2006. We were also next in line for Mindbender when the rain hit, just my luck. How'd you like the ride attendant singing "Goodbye, so long, farewell" as everyone was leaving the station?

    From KCCI.com:


    ALTOONA, Iowa --


    At least three fire crews responded to the Adventureland theme park in Altoona Saturday afternoon.


    Adventureland spokeswoman Molly Vincent said the fire is contained to an area known as 'Main Street' inside the park and no one has been injured.


    The fire is so big, smoke could be seen from the Des Moines International Airport.


    Vincent said Adventureland is closed for the season. There is a popular gun show going on nearby, but it is not connected to the fire.


    KCCI viewer photos show a lot of smoke and fire billowing from shops inside Adventureland. Fire crews are keeping everyone out of the area.


    I worked in these buildings when I was in high school. This is so sad. Luckily it looks like all the rides are ok. Hopefully theyll have bingo rebuilt in time for the TPR Mid-America trip.



    Looks like the toy shop, bingo, the arcade and skee ball, possibly all the games on the back side of the shops.






    Another article:



    Iowa’s largest amusement park, Adventureland, caught fire this afternoon around 4:30pm. The cause was determined to be from a collapsed ceiling in the park’s toy store. The collapse sparked an electrical fire.



    The park is closed for the season so no one was hurt even as the blaze spread.



    Firefighters from Altoona, Pleasant Hill, Ankeny and Johnston had contained the fire within two hours.



    The Des Moines airport reported being able to see black smoke billowing from the direction of Adventureland even across the great distance.


    Here is what the Main Street area is supposed to look like:


  6. I would be interested in seeing themed rides that are themed to Six Flag's own creativity. Like dark rides such as Monster Plantation, where it was not based on any franchise but still really creative and charming. Regardless though, theming from their own creativity or from a franchise works for me.


    Maybe they could hire Cedar Fairs creative geniuses.

  7. Big Mike's 700th Coaster Party will either be at Adventureland in Iowa or Worlds of Fun in Missouri later this week!!! All are invited to the party


    Hey Big Mike! I am hoping to be able to meet up at Adventureland this weekend. I will know more in a day or two.


    If you have any extra time on the road show the Iowa State Fair is going on. You can't beat any food you can think of deep fried on a stick.


    Ron "Hopefully see ya this weekend!" Patton
