  1. Photo TR: A Mountain Adventure October 23, 2010

     

    This past weekend some friends & I headed up to Bearsville, NY to enjoy a nice relaxing weekend up in the mountains where my family lives. I live near Philly so it was about a 4 hour drive. We left Friday night the 22nd & got there around 11:30 pm & started up a campfire. On Saturday we hung out around my grandparent's farm & hiked up to a log cabin I own & shot some guns. We shot a 21 gauge shotgun & a 22"rifle. We did that for about an hour then hit the road to try & find something fun to do. This is where the roller coaster comes in. We drove about an hour & a half to Jiminy Peaks Mountain Adventure Park to ride an Alpine Slide (but the Alpine Slide was closed ) & an Alpine Mountain coaster. The coaster was listed on coaster counter http://www.coastercounter.com/#Massachusetts_USA so I counted it as my 304th credit, yay It was a pretty unique coaster. It was a one person car, but you can fit a small child in your lap. There were two handles on the car, one on each side. You would push them forward to go fast & pull them back to slow down. A cable pulled you up the mountain & then you enjoy a nice relaxing, & in my case speedy, ride down the mountain & threw the woods. I wanted to film on it but you weren't able to so I only was able to snap a few pics. I'm not so sure if I should count this as a credit but check out the pics & I would be interested in your opinion on this. After the mountain coaster we hit the road again & headed back to my grandparent's farm. On the way there we stopped off at a Halloween attraction called Massacre Mansion. It was well decorated & cheap to visit but the actors were pretty much local teens with no experience. It was only $15 so I'm not complaining. Here is a link to the site: http://www.massacremansion.com/gallery.htm

    The rest of the night we just chilled around the campfire & headed home Sunday afternoon. Thanks for reading & enjoy the pics! This is probably my last TR of the year. I had a great season & I hope you did as well. I already can't wait for next year!

  2. Photo TR: Six Flags Great Adventure October 15, 2010

     

    This is most likely was my last trip if the year so I thought I would make a small PTR. Yeah it's been a while A few days ago I received an email asking me if I would like to be a part of a film shoot for the Travel Channel show 'Bert The Conqueror'! I had a choice of Kingda Ka, El Toro, or both which was the coasters they were filming for the show. I could only attend the El Toro shoot because I had a college class in the morning (when the Kingda Ka shoot was) so I signed up for the El Toro shoot in the afternoon. Believe it or not this cost absolutely nothing to attend I did not expect that from Six Flags & was very impressed that I could bring a guest & not pay a dime to get in the park! I actually watch 'Bert The Conqueror' so I was excited to get a chance to be on the show! I got to the park around 1 p.m. since the shoot for El Toro started around 1:30. We rode El Toro 3x before the film crew got set up. Bert was a pretty cool dude. Really entertaining. After the 3rd ride the camera crew started setting up their cameras. It took about 20 minutes. It was cold outside so it felt a lot longer. The film crew picked some little 10 year kids & their family to ride with Bert & we rode 3 more times. After they got the shots of Bert on the ride that they wanted we rode 4 more times so the crew could get off ride shots. We did a lot of sitting around & the entire shoot lasted until about 4:45 p.m. So I got to ride El Toro 10x in a row After the shoot we were aloud to stay & enjoy the park. It was cold & I had to watch the Yankees game in the ALCS so my friend & I didn't stay long. We decided to hit Bizarro & were the first guests of the day on it. We were the only ones on the ride & sat in the front & the ride operators let us have the train to ourselves again in the back! After Bizarro we went over & rode Skull Mountain 2x in a row in the last car without getting off! Nitro was out last ride & we walked right on in a middle row then got one final ride in the back row. My 2010 coaster season possibly ended on Nitro in the last seat I had a great year & if I can't get out to another park this year my 2011 season will start early in Disney World in January. Thanks for reading & enjoy the few pics I took. Sorry for the different sizes but I only had my Blackberry which doesn't take that great pics.

  4. Awesome report & great pics so far! I went to Vegas in 2008 & had a blast even though I was 18. I also visited the Hoover Dam which I thought was awesome. Speed was closed when I went & so was X-Scream on the Stratosphere. The S&S power tower though was amazing! I can't wait to get back there after I turn 21 next summer! Looking forward to the rest of your TR!
