  1. I know it comes up all the time and I am sure I have already brought it up myself, but I really wonder why parks of that quality don't seem to exist here in the states. Do the Japanese just give bigger budgets to theme parks or what? Or if you want to put aside ride and theme talk, why don't American theme parks put in those small things in the park to give a hand to it's guests? I don't think I have ever really seen any of that extra restroom stuff in an American theme park. Granted, I haven't been to a huge amount of theme parks so I could be totally wrong about this, but it just seems that there is more of a focus on making the guests feel comfortable at Japanese parks.
  2. Wow, that must be awesome popcorn, or rather it had better be to make up for the mix-up!
  3. Aargg I want to go so badly! I might have to save up to go on your next Japan tour. I wonder why we can't make parks that beautiful? BTW: How many flavors of popcorn do they have there and which ones are the best? I'm curious because I think you said in one of your past TR's that the strawberry popcorn was better than sex.
  4. Looking forward to the Tokyo Disney photos as always. And maybe it's just me, but the Jeff Johnson in the back is really creepy looking.
  5. Please don't bitch about updates, Robb and Elissa have to so much to do on these trips, try being thankful that there are already NINE updates from Scandinavia alongside many other sets of pictures from other members. Dave And i'll follow that comment with this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PiQ3tsT104 I just had to say how awesome that poem was. That thing really brightened up my day. Maybe we should start a TPR poetry corner! Eh? Eeh?
  6. It is definitely a dream of mine to go to Tokyo Disney someday. First thing on my list is to get some popcorn. I heard it was better than sex
  7. Aw dang it you beat me too it! lol I do love this song though. Really creative.
  8. You sit around a table in the dark with headphones on and they play sounds that make you think things are happening all around you. Kind of like a haunted house but with the mind. They also had one at Joypolis which some of us did and they said it really freaked them out. Oh I see. That sounds pretty creepy. Why don't they have any of that kind of stuff here in America?
  9. so, what's with the thing where you guys were all sitting at that table with the headphones?
  10. I wonder how long it took to come up with a song about liking fish? Does this remind anyone of some kind of weird Japanese kids show? Furry hats, a guy in an orange jumpsuit that carries around toys in a transformable boom box, singing about fish? That screams Japanese doesn't it?
  11. Here you go: If you want a new one: http://www.delorean.com/newbuild.asp If you want a used one: http://www.delorean.com/preowned.asp --Robb Wow, these things aren't quite as expensive as I thought they were gonna be. Time to start saving! Thanks for the info Robb!
  12. It's nice to know that there are places where nerds can go to get some of those awesome cars. Did you happen to catch any prices of any of the DeLoreans they where selling?
  13. Wow those look interesting. But now I'm trying to imagine a launched wooden coaster. I imagine it would be kinda painful seeing as wooden coasters are rough by nature. Hmm, guess we won't know until someone has the grapefruits to build one. I wonder if we will see parks upgrading their old trains for these new ones? And if so, will they make the ride any smoother? Edit: Ok, scolding myself now for not reading all of the posts and seeing the answer so my wondering if the trains would make things better on existing coasters. Going to my corner now.
  14. Go Robb! From the looks of things, you are well on your way to your goal! and I wouldn't worry too much about your BMI. It's not a bad thing to keep your eye on, but it's not entirely accurate in that it doesn't account for muscle percentage and body types. Keep it up, you're making me want to get back on my exercise plan! ganbatte kudasai!! (oh crap my nerd-itus is kicking in! )
  15. That's a pretty nice little park, even the old section looks like a nice way to spend a day or afternoon. I'll be interested to see the rest of the park.
  16. Man that thing is huge! I'm not sure I will be rushing to ride it though, something about those rides make me nervous enough without them being so dang big. I will say that I like the design, and the elevator style lift system looks cool.
  17. I am a member of the group that's rather freaked by water slides in general. I usually only ride water slides that have rafts. I remember one time I was at a local water park for an 8th grade school trip. I was riding this body slide and the first time down was a lot of fun. The trouble was on the second time down. I don't know if I did something wrong or what, but I couldn't breathe the whole way down and I was freaking out. I try and stay away from body slides now.
  18. I happen to like my steel coasters. I really like the smooth ride that they give. . well most of the time anyway. I will say this though, I don't think that any park should be without a good woodie. I mean, if nothing else, they are iconic rides and most of the time they look great. It's like a lot of people are saying here, the giant mass of supports gives the coaster a lot of volume and really makes for an impressive look.
  19. ^It depends on which park you go to. The theme for the Hollywood park seems to be the return of the deadly trio, but the theme for Orlando is Reflections of Fear where the main character is a doctor who specializes in "curing" phobias. It's not the best explanation but the web site has the whole back story, for Orlando at least. Hollywood never seems to get too involved with their HHN web site. Edit: Sorry, didn't realize there was a whole thread that was explaining this already.
  20. I agree with SFA fan, Batman the ride at SFMM isn't nearly as exciting as it was the first time I rode it. Tell us what your experience was. It's no fun for the rest of us if we can't hear about your experience.
  21. That should be the new video of what not to do on a coaster! Though I am surprised that the fight didn't end with the guy getting smacked off the train by a support, that would have been awesome.
  22. I agree with you 100%. The animals at the Busch parks are very well taken care of and you step up to any one of their animal exhibits and there are always members of their education department who gives speeches on the animals and are readily available to answer any of our questions concerning everything from the diet of the animals to laws that protects them. Another note is that SWO is the leading facility in rescuing injured manatees in Florida. Their entire manatee exhibit contains manatees that were injured. The manatees are rehabilitated there and then return to the wild unless their injuries are too severe. I don't understand where all the animal cruelty claims are coming from as I don't know of any park that not only thrills us, but educate us about the animals we share our world with. Yeah I was wondering the same thing. Isn't Sea World, like the leader in ocean conservation or something? I mean they are always talking about being kind to the animals and the environment, so I can't see how anyone can call animal cruelty. Plus, most of Sea World's animals are either born there or saved from some cruel fate. They aren't capable of surviving the wild at this point, so wouldn't releasing the animals be more cruel than keeping them in there?
  23. And laughs were had by all. I'm with ginzo on this one, there is, what I feel, an acceptable amount of wanting animals to be taken care of and I think everyone has the same feelings when it comes to unnecessary cruelty (like underground dog fights). I think that maybe PETA started as a good idea but something must have happened between the, "Hey I have a great idea!" phase and the organization phase. Anyone see that south park episode about PETA? I sometimes think that episode is not entirely false
  24. I would say you could probably get at least a whole day in at Cliff's. I used to live in Albuquerque and I visited Cliff's quite often, granted I haven't been there since the Rattler went up so I can't say whether the park is as much fun as I remembered it being. It's definitely worth a visit though.
