  1. Well technically they only modified the front spike and that was because of Vallejo's height restriction. I rode the coaster its first season with the vertical spike as well as with the modified spike and I would probably have to say its a lot more exciting and thrilling with the modified spike. I only say this because its a lot more unique compared to the other impulses and gives you a totally different ride. I don't regret that the park had to change it, because quite frankly it makes the ride stand out when compared to similar rides.
  2. Funny thing is I know the girl in that picture (the one working the ride). You really got some great shots of the park and am glad you had a great time at one of my favorite parks.
  3. I heard you can get discounted tickets at Ralphs super market for $17 dollars cheaper...Would it be better just to do that?
  4. I'll be going to Knott's Berry Farm on Friday and to all those who live in Southern California, I was wondering what kind of discount offers you can get down there. I heard that Ralphs super market might sell discounted tickets, but is there any other offers going on such as through Pepsi products. If you could let me know, I'd really appreciate it!
  5. Day 4: Magic Kingdom June 27th, 2007 Wow, I can't believe I haven't been able to post this update in the past 8 days, but it's been really hard doing so while spending time with my family here in California. I'm only here till the first week of August so I'm trying to spend time with them and work on my pictures at the same time. Anyways, after two long days at parks, the family decided that we should take a break and hang out at the pool and go to Magic Kingdom later on in the day and catch the fireworks show. So, that's exactly what we did, spent the afternoon at the pool and around 6 o'clock went to Magic Kingdom and rode some stuff over before watching the fireworks show. So, no use me talking any longer, here's the pictures. Look forward to Animal Kingdom pictures real soon! And I leave you with one last photo of Cinderella's castle...Stay tuned for Day 5 and pictures of Animal Kingdom and my favorite coaster on the trip, Expedition Everest. Me and my dad in front of it all right before we left...I really enjoyed my visits at Magic Kingdom even though they didn't have a lot of thrilling rides. It was still a great experience. I was finally able to get a picture of the statue of Walt and Mickey...I'm surprised how good this pic turned out. The finale was just amazing and my jaw was wide open when it was all over. I would have to say this was the best picture of all them. One of my favorite shots...Wish I would have take it horizontally. These babies looked really huge in person. Amazing... I still haven't decided if I liked the Wishes show or IllumiNations better... A really neat shot, it looks like the castle and the fireworks are the same color. The shots keep getting better and better. I was amazed how synchronized they had the fireworks with the music playing around the park. The show started and I missed Tinkerbell while trying to pick the best shooting mode to take fireworks pictures. Thank god my camera has a shooting mode specially for firework pics. Moments before the fireworks show began. Astro Orbiter at night...Which means the fireworks are about to start any minute now. As night drew closer, we began making our way back to the front of the park. Here's the Speedway...I definitely remember the cars being faster when I was a kid...lol Astro Orbiter and all its glory. Guess this is a little better...not. Next, we got a few more rides on Space Mountain...Sorry for my cameras lack of dark photo taking. Hmm? My family wouldn't let me ride it one last time, so I only have this picture to remind me of it. lol A day shot of my 73rd coaster... Ah, me and Mickey. I know I have a picture of me and him from back in the day and it had the same exact background and everything...I'll have to scan that picture and post it when I get back to Penn. So since my little sister didn't get to meet Mickey yet, we decided to wait at the Judge's Tent to get his autograph and take pictures. It's really unbelieveable how different this whole deal is now, because when I was at the park in 1997, I didn't remember there ever being 45 minute waits to get an autograph. Now that I think about it, it's pretty foolish waiting that long to meet some random college kid in a Micky suit, but the kids love it. Entering Mickey's Toontown Fair. After we rode BTMR once more, we got back on the train and headed to Mickey's Toontown Fair. On the way there, I got one last shot at the coaster. I'm really disappointed I didn't get to ride this coaster the last time I was at the park, I probably would have loved it. Now I just think it's a 'okay' coaster. Since I had more battery life today I was able to get a lot more shots of the coaster. As soon as we got to the park, we hopped on the train and headed to Frontierland and got one last ride on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. The day before we took the ferry so we took the monorail this time which allowed me to get this shot of Space Mountain. I also got pictures of the construction site of the new hotel, but I didn't want to bore you guys with those. The fam and I in front of Mickey...One thing you'll notice about all my pictures in the day, regardless of where the sun is, my eyes get all squinty because they're so sensitive. This pic is no different.
  6. What day were you at the park because I was there on the 13th (yes Friday) and the park wasn't crowded at all that day either. It really didn't look like Cedar Fair did much to the park considering there was so much Paramount branded things still around in the park. The only thing I did notice about the park was the sudden rise in trash cans at the park, especially in the area behind the carousel. As soon as I saw that area, I said to myself, "Yup this is a Cedar Fair park", because there's was no less than 30 trash cans in the area no joke. I'm glad you had a fun time at the park, my day was pretty fun mainly because of the people I was with. The last time I was there was 3 years ago and not much has changed. I did however get to ride Invertigo for the first time, and riding in the back was a big mistake for me because during the second part of the cobra roll I felt like I was going to pass out. My vision went all fuzzy and my legs got all numb, but other than that it was a pretty good ride. The rest of the coasters there were a bunch of crap, except for Survivor: The Ride even though it's not technically a coaster. I'm glad I have all the credits I need from that part because I don't think I would go back there over Six Flags Discovery Kingdom unless of course they installed a new coaster.
  7. I'll most likely be taking a trip down to Knotts Berry Farm the first week of August and the last week I'll be in California before I go back to Pennsylvania. It'll be my first trip to the park so it should be fun.
  8. I was at the on Friday (the 13th) and when I was on Drop Zone I noticed the whole wavepool was empty. This was around 6 pm and I'm not sure what time they close up the waterpark, but I have a feeling the wave pool might have been closed.
  9. I actually waited in line 4 hours back in 2003 on Zonga's opening day and was on the first train of the general public to ride the ride. Man was that a big mistake, and I only rode the coaster one more time after that before it closed. Man am I glad that coaster is gone, it was like a scar to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. I've probably been on more, like Tatsu, but I'd have to think about it a little more.
  10. I sure hope they don't close down the wave pool, I'm actually going to Great Americ tomorrow.
  11. Wow, you know...I'm just going to go out on a limb here and say how tired I am of everyone talking about how Cedar Fair is going to close up shop and close Geauga Lake after 4 seasons. First of all, I'm just going to tell you how fed up I am with hearing all this bull crap that Geauga Lake can't compete with Cedar Point and blah blah blah. Listen, if YOU knew anything whatsoever about Geauga Lake you would know that back in 2001 when X-Flight first opened, that Geauga Lake had a yearly attendance of about 2.5 million. And guess where Cedar Point's attendance was...over 3 million. Hm, that right there tells me that yes, both Geauga Lake and Cedar Point can both have great years without Geauga Lake having to steal the spotlight from Kinzel's baby. And about that rides side that you make sound like it's so damn pathetic. Maybe if back in 2004 when Cedar Fair took over the company or last year when they invested a lousy 3 million dollars on the park, the company could have invested in a few flat rides to spruce up the rides side. Hell, the rides side hasn't received any attention since 2001 when X-Flight was first built, you think Cedar Fair would have recognized that and invested in the area regardless if they are trying to keep a family park image. You know, back in 2003 I was very excited when I heard Cedar Fair had acquired the park and everyone heard Bill Spehn tell us that he wanted to eventually build a coaster "like Magnum" at the park. The sad thing is, that'll probably never happen now because of Kinzel's paranoia that people are going to go to Geauga Lake instead of Cedar Point. Hell, I guess I would be scared too since their attendance has been falling for the past several years. Not to mention it drops every year that the company doesn't build a new coaster (see 2004-2006). But in all seriousness, I really don't see what Cedar Fair has done so great to the park that Six Flags didn't do...except maybe build a mediocre water park that only has two slide complexes and gets boring after being there for an hour. All I'm trying to say is, regardless of how much money Geauga Lake is bringing into the company right now, do they seriously think anything is going to improve when they don't add some sort of attraction in the ride's side. I mean, seeing the same damn things year after year on their advertisements surely isn't going to make people jump up and drive to the park. The whole idea to running a business is to spend money in it so in the end you make a profit. As it stands right now, Geauga Lake has invested very little in the park. If they added something worth while to the ride side that could attract some guests then maybe we'd see the park turn around, but that's absolutly impossible with Dick Kinzel at the reigns of the company. I mean, just look how crappy of a park Dorney Park was before Cedar Fair took it under control, several years later and a few million dollars invested into it, it's now a pretty decent theme park and seems to bring in profits for the company. I'm sorry I drifted totally off topic, but I just wanted to get this out of my system and seeing all these remarks about how it would be such a good idea to just close Geauga Lake down makes me feel sick inside. My whole point is maybe if the company actually spent some money on the park to improve it we would see some sort of turnaround, but like I said, we all know that Dick Kinzel is worried that Geauga Lake might take a few thousand guests away from Cedar Point. I just don't want to see a company ruin what was a great amusement park to go to, so that the flagship park has the whole Cleveland area all to themselves.
  12. I find it really funny that all this is happening right after Six Flags Inc. went through all their share of financial problems. I guess Kinzel's great acquisition of the Paramount Park's wasn't as great as he made it seem. You'd think after watching Six Flags dig themselves into billions of dollars of debt that Cedar Fair would learn something, but no, they did the exact same thing SFI did years ago when they started snatching up every possible park in the United States. Seriously, for all those who say this isn't happenign because of financial problems, should think about this for a moment. The company is more than a billion dollars in debt, so just think how long that is going to take to pay off at the rate they are going at. It's just kinda funny that Kinzel and Co. got the Cedar Fair company in all this trouble, and they are the ones that want to stay if and when the company is sold. That just doesn't make any sense, but I guess Kinzel just likes to spend other people's money and not have to worry about the consequences. If Cedar Fair gets sold, I really hope Dick Kinzel and the rest of the management goes with the old ownership, because from how I see it, I just think Kinzel is doing more bad for this company then good. Yeah, he did some pretty good things for the company years ago, but in the last few years I just can't mention anything he has accomplished that has set the company above the rest. I just think its time for Cedar Fair to move on and start fresh, it would be a lot better for the company if they didn't have someone in charge who only cared about one of the parks.
  13. Day 3: Magic Kingdom June 26th, 2007 Sorry for not posting the pics earlier on, but I've been in Cali and its been hard getting on the computer long enough to go through all my pics and resize them and then make the post. But anyways, if I had to say which day was the worst day of my trip, I would have to say day 3. I would just like everyone to know that going to a theme park with a woman who does nothing but bitch all day, is by far the worst thing to do. You seriously wouldn't understand how aggrivated I was at the end of the day after spending the whole day doing everything my dad's girlfriend wanted to do and having to deal with her constant complaining. Not to mention we left the park early because her daughter didn't feel good and didn't get to catch the fireworks show...Luckily we came back to the park for day 4 but I'll get to that later on. So I'm going to end the rant session, and get on with the pics. Look out for Day 4 sometime this week! Also, sorry if the pics seem random and not taken in any certain order, I was dealing with a dieing battery all day so I really didn't take as many pictures as I would have liked, but I got a few more on Day 4. And there you have it, a fun filled day of aggrivation at Disney's Magic Kingdom. To end day 3, I leave you with Fun Spot's 300+ ft. sky coaster and Old Town, which somehow we ended up near when my dad got totally lost. Stay tuned for Day 4! Didn't catch this on the way in, I thought it was really neat. The castle at night...I have a lot more of these that are a lot better (plus fireworks) for my Day 4 report. We got one last ride on Space Mountain before the Queen made us leave for the night. Take note at how much my camera fails in pitch black environments. My family absolutely hated me for dragging them on this coaster, and continuously told me how they thought it was by far the worst coaster they have ever ridden lol. Credit #73! Notice how my pictures went from sunny outside to pitch black...That's what happens when you only have one bar of battery left on your camera. I forget what the boat is called, but in this picture you can faintly see the CLOSED Haunted Mansion. I really liked it the last time I was here and was anxious to ride it again, but was saddened when I saw it was closed. Another shot of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad...I'll have more in my Day 4 report considering I had more battery life on the second day at the park. Finally, several hours later and we arrive at my first new credit at the park. I think this was number 72 (sorry for lack of train - Fast Pass line goes pretty quick). Pretty self explanatory. So after the parade we finished up all the attractions in Adventureland, such as the Jungle Cruise and Pirates of the Caribbean. Even though I have no pictures of Pirates, I must say Jack Sparrow looked incredibly human-like in the ride, and I applaud Disney for that. Hey there, Beauty...haha Probably the worst looking Aladdin ever...you'd think they could at least get someone that LOOKED as if they were from the Arabia or something. The floats were continuously stopping throughout the parade and tons of cast members and paramedics were running all over the place so I had a feeling somebody passed out or something. At least we got a good look at every float, lol. But it wasn't fun standing out in the sun for so long, especially considering how hot it was. Lack of battery life made me avoid taking so many pictures, so after riding all the rides in Tomorrowland and then eating lunch, we headed over to Adventureland and got to watch the parade. Got this credit last time I was here and it was just as fun as it was ten years ago. However, I've seen what the company did with Disneyland's Space Mountain and I truly think the ride could use the same type of treatment. Even if they never build an entire new coaster like they did with DL, I still think the theming as well as the effects could use some revamping. Even though I hate his ride, Stitch is still a cool ass dude. The first thing we rode was Stitch's Great Escape. I was like, "HEY it's new, it should be great!", so we rode it. Man, if I ever regretted riding any ride in my life, this would be it. I probably almost puked halfway through the ride from that stench they blow at you, not to mention I kept smelling that smell everywhere around the park. Never again will I ride this ride, lol. First stop: Tomorrow Land, probably my favorite area of the park. Cinerella's Castle, Tinkerbell wire and all... A shot of the castle from Main Street. You've probably seen this picture a million times already...lol A shot of the park from across the lake...This was new to me considering the last time I was here, the resort buses just dropped us at the gate. We chose to take the ferry over. Yay, Magic Kingdom. A great place to spend our second day at WDW...or so I thought.
  14. I'd have to agree and say I thought it was the tackiest park centerpiece between all the parks. You can really tell Disney put no thought whatsoever on the thing when it came around to building it. I definitely think they could have done a lot better. The hat originally went up for the 100 Years of Celebration. Strong rumors in the GMR cast have it that it has to stay up because the owners of the Gauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood and Disney are having disagreements about copyright infringement. The hat allows pictures of Disney-MGM Studios to be published without Mann's Theatre being visible. I still think they could have done a lot better...lol

  16. Yeah If I had a chance I would because the place had a lot to do on days you didn't go to the parks. If I ever went back to Disney though I'd probably stay on the resort because when we went back in 97 we stayed at the All Star Resort and I really liked that as well.
  17. Day 2: Disney-MGM Studios June 25th, 2007 For our first day at the Disney parks we decided to go to Disney-MGM Studios because I wanted to go somewhere that had a coaster I hadn't ridden yet. My first choice was Animal Kingdom, of course to ride Expedition Everest, but my dad's girlfriend insisted that we wait till later on in the week to go there. I'm not sure why, but this was a reacurring thing that happened on the trip and pretty much made me a very miserable person by the end of the week. When we arrived at the park we immediately went to Guest Relations to get a special pass for my sister. My little sister has had arthritis for most of her life and she takes some type of chemo medicine that doesn't allow her to be in sunny areas for long periods of time. Disney happily gave us a special pass that allowed us to go through either the handicap entrance or fast pass entrance which was a lifesaver and allowed us to ride pretty much everything and get out of the scorching Florida sun. My first reaction to MGM Studios was no much has changed from what I remember from my last trip to the park. They added Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, the Extreme Stunt Show, Fantasmic (which I absolutely loved) and numerous other things. We tried our best to see everything, but due to some weather and maintainence problems, we weren't able to do so. Indiana Jones was closed in the middle of the show due to their being a thunderstorm within a ten mile radius of the park (it never actually reached the park) and the Great Movie ride shut down right before we were about to get on. I was disappointed I didnt get to check out the new stunt show, but by the time we did everything my dad's girlfriend wanted to do, all the shows were over by then. Hell, she didn't even want to stay to 9 o'clock to see the Fantasmic show, but luckily we got to stay and I'm really glad because it was probably the best show I've seen period. But for the most part, I enjoyed my stay at the park, even though not much has changed, but I must say, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster was a pretty decent coaster. Anyways, on with the pictures. Lookout for Day 3 sometime later this week! And to end Day 2, I leave you with a picture of the park's spotlights. Stay tuned for Day 3, I hope to post it sometime by the end of the week! The Crossroads of World on our way out. A shot of the Tower of Terror at night. A sign advertising Fantasmic. I wish I could have stayed and watched the show again at 10, but SOMEBODY was too tired and we had to leave. I wish I had enough fingers to count all the different Mickie's in the show...lol I must say, I really enjoyed the finale. It must be one hell of a task putting this show on twice a day throughout the season. I can't imagine all the hard work put into it. The whole show was really great. Probably my favorite part of the show when they lit the water on fire. And the show started...I must say I really like how they projected the video up onto those walls of water. MOV00871.MPG I don't know what's up with Americas fascination with the wave is, but it seems like everywhere I go it get started. I wonder how much money Disney makes everyday on all the stupid things parents by for their children. Me and my little sister before the show. By the time we got there, it looked like we were already an hour late...Oh well, we still got pretty good seats. Nearing 9 o'clock we headed over to Fantasmic about an hour early to try and get good seats. Took this shot on the way there. I probably would have saw this show if it wasn't for somebody in my party. Oh hey! We're in New York. Walt's plane. A cool shot of the water tower with no water in it. Where I hope to be working someday... By far one of my favorite pictures I took...This guy got totally owned by all that water. Next up, the Backlot Tour. One last shot. Let's just hope it's a lot better than that Star Tours ride...lol So after this we started making our way back to the OTHER side of the park we were at originally, and we passed the new Crush's Coaster...Oh wait, nevermind, it's Toy Story Mania! After the Great Movie ride broke down before we got to ride it, we went over and watched the animation show. We also took the drawing class (which I failed miserably at) and got this photo with the Incredibles. And must I say how tacky it is that the characters are now using giant stamps instead of handwriting otu their signatures. Good thing they were the only ones who I saw doing it. Instead of finishing the rest of the attractions in the area, we walked all the way back to the other side of the park for an ice cream sandwhich, yes, an ice cream sandwich. My dad's girlfriend's daughter got the craving for one of these, and when she wants something she gets it. So we walked all the way back here to get one. Now you know why I was going out of my mind, and it was only the first day! On our way into the 3D Muppets ride, we took a picture in front of the fountain. Yay, 3:21 until I ride the most pointless ride ever...lol Ok, I guess it wasn't that bad, but I didn't enjoy it all that much. Pretty good theming for a pretty bad ride... Halfway through the Indiana Jones show, they ended the show due to a thunderstorm nearby. So instead of waiting for the next show we decided to head over to Star Tours. After leaving the area we went over and watched the Little Mermaid show which I thought was pretty neat. We decided to come back to the animation studio later and head over to Indiana Jones. On the way there we passed this, which I had absolutly no interest in. It looked pretty dumb if you ask me. Right before we got on the ride. Last time I was here I really didn't get to take in the great theming inside the hotel. The whole ride really amazes me upstairs and down. Hotel signage. After riding Rock 'n' Roller Coaster we went over and rode Tower of Terror. Here's a picture looking up at the ride. A peek at the cool looking exit area. Credit #71! One of the few sit-down Vekomas I enjoyed. This alone makes Six Flags and Cedar Fair theming look like a joke. I thought the entry way was really neat... We decided to go to the far right of the park and work our way across. This allowed me to get my 71st credit and a ride on this ride. To tell you the truth I didn't realize this was supposed to be the park's center piece until the end of the week. lol We finally got into the park around 8ish and the crowds were beginning to get to the park. Yay, we're finally here...now where's Expedition Everest? lol We left the hotel around 7:30 and 6 miles up the road we arrived at the entrance to Disney World.
  18. The resort was great. We got to spend three afternoons there to go swimming and what not and I had a blast. They constantly had activities going on poolside, which I thought was a great touch. It was a very nice place, you should enjoy it. As for transportation to the parks, Seaworld is right down the road a mile or so. Disney is about six or so miles away from the resort and was very easy to get to. I'm not sure about Universal because I didn't see the park, but I'm sure it can't be that far away. I'm not sure if the resort supplies shuttles to any of the parks so you might want to check on that if you were looking for that. As for Day 2, I'm going to start going through the 200+ photos I took at MGM Studios. Sorry If theres a longer than normal time delay in between days because I'm not at home on my own computer, I'm actually in California visiting my mom for a month so I'm dong this whenever I get some time on the computer. So look forward to day 2 and I'm glad everyones liking the trip report thus far.
  19. I'm loving all the people saying to build a big coaster such as a big B&M hyper or inverted...I just don't see that happening anytime soon. As you might know, Disney parks are really aimed at the families, not just Disneyland either. Now, I'm not too sure about California Screamin but I don't remember any of the coaster at WDW having height limits over 48", so I think adding any attraction with a height limit over 48" let alone one as high as 54" could really kill that aim to the families. I just don't see a B7M at Disneyland anytime soon, but that's just my opinion. What I think would be some smart and realistic ideas for new rides and attractions, include: 1) A Test Track type ride that would be themed around the Cars movie. 2) Some type or ride, maybe a simulator of some sort, themed with the Incredibles. 3) A Mourer Sohne spinning coaster similar to Crush's Coaster. Those are just a few quick ideas, I'll try to think of some more and post them later.
  20. So I believe this is my very first photo trip report on TPR so bear with me please... This will most likely be a pretty extensive trip report considering I took over 700 pictures at the all the parks, so I'll try to keep it as minimal as possible with some of my best pictures. And now on with the report... So, every summer for the past few years my family and I have went on vacations that included beaches and cruises, but no theme parks with the exception of Morey's Piers two years ago. When I heard my dad tell me that this year we were going to make a trip down to Florida to go to Disney, I was pretty ecstatic. The last time I went to the park was back in 1997 when I was seven and when the whole 25th anniversary deal was going on so it was only fitting that ten years later we're at the park during the 35th anniversary celebration. The last time I was at Disney, as I already stated, I was pretty young and I really didn't get to appreciate it all the much so I was anxious to see how I would enjoy the parks at 17 years old, but I'll get to more of this later. After a week of cleaning up from my graduation party, I was all packed and ready to embark on my week long adventure to the "happiest place on Earth". In attendance for this trip were myself, my dad, his girlfriend, her daughter, and my little sister. Little did I know that spending time with some of these people for a week was going to drive me insane, but I'll get more into that later on in the report. I'll try to post my pictures in segments for each day I was in Florida so its easier to keep up with. Look forward to Day 2 in a day or so. I wish I could post all the pics at once, but I'm in California right now and I haven't really had time to look through the 700+ pics I have of my trip so I'll have to do it by days. So here we go... Day 1: Arrival June 24th, 2007 One last shot of Aquatica before the end of Day 1. Another shot of the big slide complex in Aquatica. On the way back to the resort, I got some pictures of Seaworld's new waterpark which looks pretty impressive from what I've seen thus far. I might have to make another trip down to Florida next summer to check it out. So instead, we went to Sizzler, which we regretted because it was possibly the worst meal we've ever had. No joke. After spending a day at the pool, we were originally going to go over to one of the parks for the night...but as you can see the weather turned ugly so we had to change our plans. A shot of the big lake and fountain outside our balcony. Or maybe it's a picture of the insect screen around our balcony... Another shot of our luxurious hotel room. I didn't get a shot of the other bedroom or bathroom. This is what we found when we arrived at our room later in the day...I was really surprised to see how nice the place was. When we arrived at the hotel, we weren't allowed to check in until after 4 p.m. so we decided to lounge at the pool to take up the time. Here's a shot of ONE of the two large pools at the resort. We arrive at the Sheraton Vistana Villages, the resort we stayed at. I also got a glimpse of Journey to Atlantis...Another coaster I was unfortunately unable to ride. So did I mention that our resort was extremely close to SeaWorld? I guess not. On the way there I was able to snap a quick picture of Kraken, a coaster I was unable to ride this trip. On the highway, we passed the real reason why I wanted to come on this trip. Ok, I lied...We actually got a really spacious Chevy Impala which compfortably fit all five of us on the trip...Or so my dad thought. After landing we went and picked up our rental car. Damn she's a beauty. Sorry for the time gap and the lack of pictures up in the air, but I was extremely tired and I decided to get another 2 hours of sleep. This picture is pretty self explanatory...We're finally here. Our plane...God damn I hate Southwest. We're almost there. As you may or may not know, the city Pittsburgh is really proud of their ketchup. Random signage. Welcome to Pittsburgh International Airport. Forty-five minutes later, we arrived at the airport. Our journey begins at 4:17 am give or take a few minutes...To tell you a little about myself, I'm really not a morning person, a reason why you won't be seeing any pictures of me on this day of the trip. But anways, after the alarm went off, I put my clothes on, grabbed my bags, and we were off to Orlando.
  21. All the trips look interesting to me considering I haven't been to very many parks, but as it stands right now I'm most interested in the East Coast USA and Texas trips. I'm really hoping that I can save enough money a year with college and all to go on one trip a year, maybe two if the other is a small trip. Granted I've never been on a TPR trip before, I'm definitly looking forward to going on the East Coast, Southern US, Midwest, Texas and possibly even Europe somewhere down the line. But as for next year, I'm going to try really really hard to get on that East Coast trip. And depending on where my finals fall next spring, I might also try to get on that Texas trip as well.
  22. Sad, but true...It's just too bad Kennywood can't get both sides of our Swing working.
  23. I have a replica of Heinz Field and PNC Park and they are very very good quality. If I had the money, I'd definitely buy this, but I don't. Maybe they'll consider making a Phantom's Revenge one, I'd definitely get that one though.
  24. Well, it's a very good investment...Just look, nobody went to GL in 2004, and with WWK it raised the attendance by 19%. I believe when SFGAm got theirs, their attendance rose 28%. It attracts a lot of people and families, and like I said, it's a very good investment for a park to make.
  25. Hmm, seems like GL got rid of most of their chain restaurants in the park. I don't know about that. I'm just curious if they are putting any shops at all in Phase 2 of the waterpark.
