  1. Excellent TR so far! Thank you for taking time to post updates! Medusa has always looked amazing to me since seeing the videos online.
  2. Excellent TR!! I too will commend you on your humor. Totally found myself laughing at this outloud. I keep telling myself to post my own first Photo TR of my first TPR trip which was the Texas/Midwest trip this past summer but I thought it might be too late and people really wouldn't be interested, but I think you may have inspired me! Okay and also there is the fact that I'm really not sure how to go about doing it, hehe. Good job though!
  3. Loving your TR! Especially love the log flume pic of you guys! hilarious!!
  4. Yeah I was going to say, everytime I have been to Sea World in San Antonio they always have a salute to the military members in the audience. San Antonio has a big military presence with Lackland Airforce Base and Fort Sam Houston right in town. Great report! So nice to see other people's pics from the trip so I can see things from different angles.
  5. Yay! Another TR from an awesome trip! Great to meet you and Andrew!
  6. Totally excellent TR!! I loved reading about your excitement at your first visit to Japan. I hope to make my first visit with TPR in 2015. It's been a plave I've wanted to visit since I was little and watched the Gamera movies, especially with the Mystery Science Theater treatment! Cannot wait to read more on your trip!
  7. Great TR Marcel!!!! You captured all of my excitement and feelings exactly for my first trip also. Awesome photo to end it all.....with the family responsible for all this greatness....the Alvey family!!!
  8. Great pictures! Especially loved your Gryffindor Tri Wizard champion shirt!
  9. That unique flat ride was definitely fun! Weird sensation to be spinning and looking straight down at the ground below. Your TR is great Marcel! Seriously making me want to turn back time and do it all over again! Six Flags St Louis definitely had one of my best coaster memories, riding Freeze during ERT about 8 times in a row without getting off and riding with Alexis and Jared and laughing so damn hard! Seriously had never laughed that much in my life with Jared's screams and Alexis' contagious laughing.....I'm laughing right now thinking of it!
  10. I can't help but hear Antonio Banderas' voice over saying "maaaaaaas suave". LOL! Gosh this ride looks incredible!
  11. Amazing!!! Outlaw Run is seriously insane and if this thing is anything like it, which I'm sure it will be, it will be so awesome! Loving what RMC is coming out with. I would love to just sit with someone on their design team.
  12. I showed my co-workers some of the pics from City Museum and nobody understood the place. I told them I didn't understand it either and I had been there! It is just so hard to put into words how awesomely messed up that place is!
  13. Great report Marcel! Damn I wish I were back at SDC instead of here in Texas!
  14. Great TR! I enjoyed reading your thoughts on the rides and the pics were excellent! This might sound wacky, but I've got kind of a fascination with aerial park photos. Something about seeing a picture of the whole ride in one frame from up high makes me giddy!
  15. Teddy Bear.....best coaster name EVER! lol Cute little park. Great start to the TR!
  16. Yay! Wish you all the best! I made many friends online way in the past that I still keep in contact with. I even ended up dating a few. Where in Texas did you visit?
  17. In my best Sofia Petrillo voice, "picture it, Austin, 2011" At one of those crappy little parking lot fairs, so not really a themepark but play along, it was my second semester of nursing school and the coincidence could not have been more bizarre. I was with two friends celebrating my "A" on a recent exam covering the cardiac system. In line for a crazy dance flat ride when the guy in front of us starting complaining to his wife that he was feeling ill. He was sweating profusely, not uncommon in Texas, but then he started complaining of left shoulder/neck pain and tightness in his chest. I was nosey and butted in asking if he had a history of angina, and he said no. We started to leave the line and I asked his wife if she had any aspirin and miraculously she did because later I found out she had suffered a heart attack 3 years prior. So I gave him chewable aspirin and we sat down at a picnic bench. When his pain did not subside I remember my exact words to his wife "I'm just a second semester nursing student but I think he is having a heart attack". She looked at me like I was crazy when I suggested calling 911. She kept comparing her experience with her heart attack with what he was experiencing. I told her men and women can experience different syptoms and it is better to be safe than sorry. So she gets on her cell phone and tells the 911 operator : "I have a nursing student telling me my husband is having a heart attack" and finally her husband yelled at her to send an ambulance! Thank goodness the EMS crew got there quickly because once they loaded him up and hooked him up to EKG they could see for themselves he was in serious crap. The wife took down my name and cell phone number before the ambulance took him. Found out later when she called me that he had a massive heart attack just as he arrived to the Heart Hospital here and ended up having a quadruple bypass. Proud to say he is still alive and kicking! Had lunch (low sodium of course) with him and his wife a couple of months ago.
  18. Excellent! I'll pay more attention next time I see that!
  19. Can't wait to hear the reviews! That one picture of the train diving off the cliff with the one guy riding makes the train really resemble a snake. The empty brown seats looking like scales! Have fun guys!!
  20. Wow me too! I started streaming Battlestar Galactica and made it to season 2 before my ADD kicked in and I started reliving my childhood by watching the old 90's cartoon series The X-Men, then I got distracted again and started re-watching another show. I'm glad I'm not the only one with this disorder!
