  1. Gotta love Brad being very politically correct as he walks around Nigloland. I will enjoy dragging all of you back to CDG when I finally come to visit.
  2. Great trip report so far! This brings back memories of my trip to LA and Vegas in Dec. 2012. Funny enough...I took my own picture on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: Matt Damon
  3. Ahhh, the Brit Crew trip report! It's times like this that I wish I lived on the other side of the "pond" and could easily partake in these weekends. Glad to see you all had a good time! GeForce looks awesome!
  4. Great trip report Divv!! Makes me all the more excited for my first Disneyland visit this December! Some day I'll be calling you up to take me around Disneyland Paris.
  5. I haven't seen a fireworks show there in years either. It's interesting to see that they're still doing them from the back part of the park. If it's like old times, the lawn in behind the mountain near Vortex should still be a great alternative spot to watch the fireworks.
  6. This reminds me of the information packet that you sent me! I still have that around and re-read it every now and then! I'll have to scan it and upload it to the site one day. Maybe I'll get around to it when you finally come up for a visit. Thanks a LOT for sharing this Shane! I love your thread and reading up on the history of parks like this. Wonderland has always been special to me and I can't get enough of old footage and information like this on the park. The interlocking bricks and overall beauty of the park are things that still set it apart from the competition to this day.
  7. Your trip reports continue to be my favourite ones on the site! Looks like another successful outing for the Brit Crew. Can't wait to be a co-star in these reports again with you soon!!
  8. ^ Robb even if it's just a bigger Behemoth I still expect you and Elissa to come up for a visit to try it out! I'm really hoping that this turns out to be something incredible so that I can hold it over the heads of all my British and American TPR friends.
  9. I'm beyond excited to see the layout! I can't imagine how they're going to differentiate this from Behemoth.
  10. I've got no idea what this ride is going to be (beyond a new B&M) and I'm not going to bother attempting to guess. All I know is that I can't wait for the announcement! TPR Canada bash next year?!
  11. I'm in! Andrew and Jason, what date do you guys want to book our walk for!? As much as I love the idea and can't wait to try it, I feel like this cheapens the CN Tower in a way. I've always thought of it as an architectural marvel, and now it's being used as a thrill whore like the Stratosphere.
  12. Thanks for the report Adam! Looks like a much needed update over the old storyline. I'm a big fan of refreshing old attractions like this instead of totally replacing them. Can't wait to get down there and check it out for myself!!
  13. Thank you for posting this Divv!! Congrats yet again to Dave and Amy! It looks like you two really know how to throw a party! The meal in a train idea is genius! I so wish that I could've made the voyage to join in the party personally. Having Divv recite the adventures, while very entertaining, just isn't the same.
  14. Looked like a great day at Thorpe! I'll do my best to come out with Andrew for his next visit so I can meet the rest of the Brit Crew and see old friends again!!
  15. Why do some people sound surprised that Canada's Wonderland is the top seasonal park in North America? It's been that way for as long as I've been reading these reports (2005 or earlier). It doesn't shock me at all. There are a HUGE number of people in southern Ontario that the park pulls on (5.5 million in the Greater Toronto Area alone) with little to no competition.
  16. Here's a couple for the Canada's Wonderland collection that I've got on my computer already. I'll complete the list on my first visit this summer. The Ghoster Coaster Entrance First pic of Swings of the Century. And another. This time, I spy with my little eye, 2 TPR members!
  17. What were the prices like for the cars? It's a pretty nice concept that in a much smaller location could do well imo. It's so sad to see Pleasure Island totally dead. Downtown Disney in general has really gone down hill since the early 2000's.
  18. Someone needs to tell me how the Shoot the Terrorist with "live targets" works! Do they really hire middle easterners to get shot with paint balls all day long?! Awesome report! I've always wanted to get out and check a real seaside pier park. I've always loved the idea of boardwalks. They're not very common in Canada.
  19. Awesome! I'm so adding this to my list of things to see when I finally get over there! Looks like you 2 had a blast. Hopefully it's attendance will pick up and that it will be a huge success. I'm a lover of all things Lego and can't wait for Legoland Orlando!
  20. Divv, I'm amazed at your ability to make fun of so many people in a single trip report. Yes that river does come remarkably close to matching my tattoo. Another great report, wouldn't have expected anything else! Wish I was there as always. Here's hoping that you make fun of Andrew and his lack of ability to hold liquor in the next report!
  21. Woo-Hoo! Thanks for the updates! I'm really excited to see that Canada's Wonderland is at least throwing the idea around of having an enthusiast event. There are a lot of enthusiasts in the Toronto area and I know it'd be a success. As far as I know though the TPR Behemoth Bash event back in 2008 was one of (if not the) biggest enthusiast events to take place at the park. I've also been interested in checking out Coaster Mania for years so I'm glad to see that my upcoming Club TPR membership will include that event too! Thanks again!
  22. Somebody with the power to make it happen HAS to rename Dave's screen name to "Fudgepost"!! That's too perfect Steve! I solemnly swear to get out there and take part in one of these epic Blackpool nights!
  23. Great trip report! It's just missing 1 thing...ME!!! Oh, and drunken photos from Reflex! It's missing those too!
