  1. Let's say one would like to find a bunch of patches from various parks (new or old, rides or general, doesn't matter..and no, no patch jackets are involved). Without going to the parks themselves, is ebay the only option for this kind of thing or is there another place that park goers sell/trade them? Ebay's pickings are slim. Alternatively, is anyone looking to get rid of a few?Thanks!
  2. It does, you're right. It's pretty strange. Hopefully it'll open early enough in the Spring so I can ride it and do a "real" TR before I move back to Toronto. When I rode it back when I was a kid it did have a seat belt. It even 'locked'. They had to use a key type thing to let you out. They were using the same sleds as the one in Tom's picture, so probably the same thing.
  3. Tom - Come visit! Jer and I will take you to this wacky coaster. Elissa - It's in a small town about an hour and a half from Toronto and it's in this tiny little 'fun park'. Probably not even worth the trip if you guys are ever in Toronto again..although from what I remember they let tiny children ride on your lap. A KidTums credit, perhaps?
  4. I moved to Peterborough a little over a month ago, and finally got a chance to go see this weird little coaster for the first time since I was 10 years old. I didn't get to ride it since it's closed for the season. Sad. I did ride it back when I was 10 and remember it being pretty cool. I have no idea how accurate that is though. Basically, you climb up a few flights of stairs, sit on a little red sled, and the ride op throws you over the edge. Fun! Pictures now. The layout. There are a few bunny hills off to the right, but I couldn't get a better angle because of the fence. There is a
  5. Time to bring this thread back from the dead! This summer my fiance and I rescued a mama and litter of five kittens from a crazy lady who was going to drown them. Mama with three of the tiny kittens. Charlie, Jamie, Chester, Piper, and Lucy. Chester, Lucy, and Charlie have been adopted, and either Jamie or Piper will be adopted tonight. Cuddle puddle We wanted to keep Mama, but because she hates our dog with a passion we decided we were not the best home for her and adopted Charlie instead. Mama will stay with us until we find her the best home possible.
  6. As an Early Childhood Educator and elementary school teacher, I think what you guys are doing with Kristen is great. Young kids, and even older ones too, learn a lot more from hands on experiences than from sitting in a classroom all day. When my students' parents ask me what they can do for enrichment for their kids I tell them to take them places, experience things, and talk about what they see. That is the best learning, in my opinion. For example, you can read a book about a cow, but getting to actually see, touch, hear, and smell that cow is the better learning experience. If you're a thr
  7. shesaidboom and 307 do Disney World, SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Africa - part six of six So here we are. Three weeks later. When we finally get around to doing the final part of the report. It just hurt both of us too much to think about our beautiful TR about our beautiful trip being over. Our last few days were a lot of fun and totally relaxing, if not a bit frustrating, as I tried like hell to get a tan and ended up with an awkward looking half-burn on my back, a burn on my upper chest, and very little tanning anywhere else. I suck so, so much at tanning. We caught a Tampa B
  8. shesaidboom and 307 do Disney World, SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Africa - part five of six Nikki and I had been to Busch before, and really they hadn't added anything since our last visit except for the 'floorless' part of 'floorless Shiekra'. We did, however, enjoy our last visit so we wanted to make sure we had time to squeeze it in on this trip! We got more out of the trip this time because we had a list of things we definitely wanted to hit [Montu], and the things we definitely wanted to miss [Cheetah Chase]. Once again it was super hot but we were spurned on by knowing that thi
  9. Milk in bags! YES! It's so weird for me when I go to the US and only see jugs or cartons. Wonderland...always nice to see a TR from my home park. I was surprised by Behemoth's quick line too. Jer and I went yesterday and with a pretty full queue it was only a 15 minute wait. They weren't being rude or rushing us though. I agree with a lot of your comments on the set up of the park. The left side used to be much better and well themed, even without the coasters. They took a lot out. I really miss the old log ride. Glad you guys had a great vacation!
  10. shesaidboom and 307 do Disney World, SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Africa - part four of six Our fifth stop was to SeaWorld Orlando, another place we'd never been before! By this point the walking around in the 90+ heat was getting to us and we were pretty beat down. It certainly didn't hamper our enjoyment of the park, though, as SeaWorld was our favourite park of the trip. Yeah, suck on that, Disney fanboys! Manta was oodles better than the three other flyers we've been on. The pretzel loop remains very intense, and the final splash turn was awesome, especially in the back on the in
  11. shesaidboom and 307 do Disney World, SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Africa - part three of six Our final stop on the Disney Train was EPCOT and the giant ball thing. It was, I think, the hottest day of our trip thus far on this day. Absolutely ridiculously hot and humid and sticky, and the fact that this is probably the least shaded Disney park did not help at all. So about mid way through exploring the various 'countries' around the lake, we decided screw it, it's too hot, and just busted butt to Soarin'. Being that EPCOT doesn't have too many 'top notch' attractions, the Fast Passes went
  12. Dude, 100% yes. Make it so. Ummmm... good question! When you come up with an answer, let us know! YES. It's a little known fact that Bananas in Pajamas started out as monorail drivers before they broke big on the TV scene. Most of the pics were taken with a Sony CyberShot from, like, 2004. Outside of the black blotch, it still takes pretty good pictures! Thanks for all the comments! Keep 'em comin'
  13. Wow, Pilgrim's Plunge looks terrifying!!! Great photos!
