  1. Yeah. A few of the stores are already open. Bass pro has been open for quite awhile. I went to the theater last month. There were only very few stores open then with entrances on the outside. I don't know what else has opened since then though.
  2. Awesome! They're reopening the huge mall this year and now this. It's only an hour from my house. Yay!
  3. It was a fun little park when we visited on the west coast tour. The apple fries (is that what they're called?) were good. The boat ride was fun too. All the theming was really neat.

  5. I love stuff like this! A thread like this was how I first found TPR.
  6. Loved the update and would love to see more like it. I enjoy seeing your take on attractions like this because I know you'll give an honest unbiased opinion even though shows are not your favorite.
  7. I have to say that some of the best times I've had during TPR trips are actually things like the beach parties on the West Coast trip or hanging out in hotel lobbies or watching shows starring Trevor or bus ride antics or group meals. These are the things I remember most about the TPR trips. I knew when a bunch of us were just hanging out in the bar at Indiana Beach on the MidWest trip in 2007 that TPR was definitely the right place for me. I just wanted to say too, that I love this thread. It's awesome getting to hear about the trip from the organizers' point of view. I totally agree! The crazy side things that we all do on the trips is what makes them so amazing, whether it's toasting to Ezra, invoking the turkey, drinking beer on the beach, watching a one-man version of Space Odyssey, getting to meet a baby otter up close, visiting a jelly bean factory or doing a scavenger hunt in Disneyland. The coasters are awesome but moreso are the experiences with the people, the friends you make, the food you eat. I knew I would forever be a loyal fan of Robb, Elissa and TPR after that first Midwest trip. You all truly are amazing people and I hope to be able to travel with you for years to come and look forward to the next unexpected amazing experience that I will have on one of your trips. I'm starting to look forward to the culture experiences just as much as the parks. I'm so jealous that I didn't get to make it on the Europe trip to be able to have that awesome experience. This thread has been awesome. I love the behind-the-scenes Elissa perspective.
  8. Parade, the magazine insert that comes in newspapers, has a cover story on "the new Harry Potter theme park in Orlando".
  9. I haven't been in years. The last time I was there they still had the coaster that came from King's Island. I wouldn't say it was "big on thrills", it's more of just a small family park. It's kinda like a Beech Bend with older rides.
  10. Here is my entry... On coasters and slides Is where Summer fun begins At Holiday World
  11. Sad. I've been going to Kentucky Kingdom since it first opened. The Rainbow was already gone last year which really made me sad because it's one of my favorite flat rides. The Break Dance there is pretty awesome and would make a great addition somewhere. The only thing that was busy was the water park, all the regular rides were just walk-ons all the time. If they decide not to send the rides to other parks it would be cool if Beech Bend here in Bowling Green could get some of the rides.
  12. The card looks great! I think more contests would be a good idea as well.
  13. I'm so sad about Brittany Murphy. Clueless is one of my favorite movies.
