  1. Big Mike looks even better on the new updated forum!!!
  2. Superb Job!!! Glad to see everyone's hard work paying off and that's a really cool award to hang in TPR Headquarters! All the best and love to all, Big Mike
  3. Very cool stuff!! Enjoyed reading and seeing all the fun things you did, especially the shows! I am glad to see someone who loves the theater as much as I do. You just don't find enough people in the World who appreciate this as much as I think they should. I feel lucky that I can hop over to NYC any day after work if I win any of the Broadway lotteries, as I have a change of clothes in the car at the ready any given day. Tell everyone I said hello! Peace, Big Mike
  4. Hello everybody! How about that, it's anniversary time!! 10 YEARS AGO TODAY!!!!!!! June 9, 2006, we were all meeting in the UK for TPR's first ever attempt at a group tour! Yes, Big Mike was one of the test dummies and if you ever took a TPR trip after that, you can thank The Big Man for not ruining the original trip and giving Robb and Elissa the confidence to run more! Big Mike had joined TPR almost a year to the date (June 7, 2005) before heading out of the country with 50 something total strangers! Since then, Big Mike traveled with TPR every single year after that to different parts of the World from 2006-2013, 8 straight years with sometimes multiple trips per year. Big Mike enjoyed the trips so much that he started this Big Mike Road Show thread and actually amassed over ONE MILLION VIEWS! Even though there has not been an update in over two years, The Big Mike Road Show thread still holds the top spot in non discussion threads in posts in the Theme Parks, Roller Coasters and Donkeys category, and is 2nd only to Shane's Amusement Attic in views! TBMRS thread still holds a spot in both Top 25 polls (posts and views) of ALL threads on the website! So, for this very monumental anniversary, Big Mike decided to throw up a few pictures of himself as always just to mark the important date in TPR history! Hope you enjoy! Peace, Big Mike The 1st TPR trip participants ever!! The first picture ever on TPR that Big Mike's face made its debut!
  5. Poor KidTums, looks like she got a little too twisted lol. Good report Chuckster!
  6. This is SO cool to see people still checking out The Big Mike Road Show thread from start to finish! I hope you enjoyed it!! I think maybe one day I should go through and relive it from start to finish also. Peace, Big Mike
  7. Wow! One day short of a full year of no posts in this thread! lol I was one day going to try to go back to the Dells and find my missing duckies too! As far as I remember, no one found any. I would be interested in seeing if any are still there. Let me know please. Peace, Big Mike
  8. GOLD shirt!!!! lol Close, I said I was going to lay low for 6 years and start back up when I retired Peace, Big Mike
  9. Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!! Big Mike is back once again to show you another adventure taken on The Big Mike Road Show! This trip took Big Mike to the state of Mississippi to visit Brookhaven Exchange Club and home to the ONLY roller coaster in the state of Mississippi, the All American Roller Coaster!!! The Brookhaven Exchange is only open about one week a year during the fair, and this was not even close to the week while Big Mike was visiting!!! As everyone probably knows by now, Big Mike has this little thing he likes to pull out every once in a while when he really needs it called "The Big Mike Charm"!! Big Mike surely needed it this time, pulled it out, used it, and once again it worked like magic! The guys at Brookhaven Exchange Club loved the idea of The Mighty Big Man coming to ride their coaster, and not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 guys showed up to show Big Mike around This was a great day in Big Mike Road Show history, and now you can experience it too! I sure hope you enjoy it!!!!! Before we get to that, let's give a big hand out to the following fellow TPR members for winning MAGICAL MIKEY T-SHIRTS last year!!! picknyourseat high roller sspaz1000 The Bebes coreys junk Don't forget , these NEW MAGICAL MIKEY T-SHIRTS have special powers, and will NEVER expire, so you can wear it year after year and still claim benefits from it! Every time someone wins a Magical Mikey T-Shirt, the MAGICAL MIKEY shirt will reward the person a possible 3 times a year: 1. Wear your MAGICAL MIKEY T-shirt to a park one time a year and buy yourself a treat, take a picture of you wearing your shirt and displaying your treat and post it in the thread and Big Mike will refund you $5 for that treat! 2. Wear your MAGICAL MIKEY T-shirt to a TPR Bash Event or on a TPR trip and buy yourself a treat, take a picture of you wearing your shirt and displaying your treat and post it in this thread and Big Mike will refund you $5 for that treat! 3. Wear your MAGICAL MIKEY T-shirt while meeting up with Big Mike at a park during the season and Big Mike will buy you a treat on the spot! That is 3 chances for a treat a year, year after year, and the ability to wear a very cool BRANDNEW ONE OF A KIND t-shirt!!! (Not the famous gold one) BIG MIKE STILL HAS LOTS OF SHIRTS, SO STAY TUNED ON HOW TO WIN ONE! Also, the next round for the free 2014 season pass or one week condo stay is happening NOW! GRAND CHAMPION ELIMINATION TOURNAMENT!!! ROUND #2 Everyone who found a ducky at a park or guessed a Find the Ducky contest correctly has been entered into the Grand Prize Drawing!!! I took the list straight off page #1 in exact order of the draft picks and there will now be 8 rounds of eliminations until only one person is left and is declared Grand Champion and can collect the Grand Prize of a free 2014 season pass or a one week condo stay! The rules are very simple, everyone is matched up with an odd number vs. an even number. During the MEGA MILLIONS drawing on FRIDAY JANUARY 17TH, whatever the Mega Ball number is, odd or even (there are 46 mega ball numbers, so it is equal), either all the odds advance or all the evens advance! Example - If the Mega Ball is 19 which is an odd number, everyone with an odd number in front of their name advances (1,3,5,7 etc). Once round #1 is done, everyone who advanced will be re-numbered in exact order and begin round #2. We will go from 144 in round one to 72 in round 2, to 36 in round 3, to 18 in round 4, then we will have a special round where only 2 people get eliminated in round 5 down to 16, then to 8 , then to 4, then to 2, and then we will have our sole survivor and Grand Champion!!! Easy peasy!!! It is kind of like having to win a coin flip 9 times in a row, but one person will do it! Good Luck to all!!! 1. amyamy 2. mikeykaise 3. printersdevil78 4. orangecats2 5. coreysjunk 6. coreysjunk 7. coreysjunk 8. coreysjunk 9. coreysjunk 10. coresyjunk 11. coreysjunk 12. The Bebes 13.

SuperShawn [coastertube]http://www.themeparkreview.com/coastertube/play.php?vid=IMG_2056_a397[/coastertube] Big Mike travels to the state of Mississippi to ride the one and only coaster running in the state! The park is only open one week a year for a fair, OR, whenever Big Mike is in town! Ka- Ching!!!!! The All American Roller Coaster has been conquered by The Mighty Big Man!!! Thanks to these wonderful guys for all coming out and helping Big Mike on his quest! They deserve Big Mike Road Show goodie bags for sure!! The Brookhaven Exchange Club in Mississippi!!!! A long trip for The Big Man, but worth it! Of course, Big Mike had to get video for The Valuable Big Mike Readers!! Here is Big Mike on it again! It is worth a few more views!!! You know this guy is saying "This Big Mike is one total screwball!" Here is an overview of the coaster and the rest of the rides at Brookhaven Exchange Club! Just remember, the park was not open to the public, so the rides are not ready to go! As they were giving me a tour of the facility, they said this ride actually was found on a highway and when no one came back to claim it, they were allowed to keep it. One week a year, these booths are jamming! The guys of Brookhaven Exchange Club not only let Big Mike in to ride and also gave him a tour, but now a behind the scenes VIP tour as well! Storage and maintenance warehouse. Supply shop. Paint shop! This horse will be ready to go for everyone next time you visit Mississippi!!! Tell them Big Mike said hello Take care, hope you enjoyed! Peace, Big Mike
  10. Glad everyone enjoyed the parade from a different and special place! It was nice hanging out with you guys again as always Peace, Big Mike
  11. Going through looking back on page 1 of all the pics when Kristen was born!!! What an awesome day!!! Peace, Big Mike
  12. I have not tried to read the forums from it, but I did try my first update on The Big Mike Road Show thread. I put up an 11 picture update and it didn't take me long at all. Signing up, finding my thread, and uploading pictures was easy, and I even figured out how to do it all on my own, which is rare lol. I then switched to my main computer to see how it worked and the only problem I had was that all my pictures were in reverse order. It took a while but I figured out how to put them in the right order on my main computer. I think this app will work out really good for myself because I can upload updates very easily on my Iphone as it happens in real time. Peace, Big Mike
  13. Big Mike is testing this new app for Theme Park Review that Robb sent an email about! This would work great for Big Mike since he takes most pictures from his IPhone nowadays and would make it much easier to update this thread on the go with up to the minute updates! This was yesterday at Phoenix Phall Phunfest at Knoebels, where I finally got to ride Flying Turns!!!!! Flying Turns was fun and Big Mike's advice is to do some homework early and set up your seat partners beforehand!!!!! Each car can hold up to 400 pounds and they actually have a scale you have to stand on and get weighed! The more the train weighs, the faster and higher up the wall the cars go!!! Have each car maxed out as close to 400 pounds for a total of 1,200!!!!!!! I had a kid behind me and a skinny dad and his little girl in front of me. We gave away about 700 pounds and the ride was limited. Also, Big Mike brought Mom as well as Lucky Dog with him for their first Knoebels experience!! Lucky Dog chickened out of riding the 4 rides he was allowed to, but it was still nice to have him there!!! Hope this update works and hope you enjoy! Peace, Big Mike
