June 9, 2006 - London

 

My plane arrived at 11:00 am instead of 10:00 because we took off about an hour late! Once I landed, I went to London for a couple of hours. The London Eye gives you a great view of London. After spending a couple of hours in London I got to the hotel about 6:00 pm. I wanted to sleep but I forced myself to stay up until about 10:00 pm because I wanted to avoid jet lag as much as possible.

 

Here are my pictures from London:

June 10, 2006 - Chessington World of Adventures

 

This was the official start of the TPR UK Trip 2006. We had ERT on Vampire and Dragon Fury in the morning. Dragon Fury is the best spinning coaster that I have ever been on! They had one of the best dark rides I have ever been on! I had a good time at the park and I found some new favorite rides.

June 10, 2006 - Coney Beach

 

After we left Chessington World of Adventures R&E surprised us by announcing that we were going to stop by Coney Beach! Coney Beach is the craziest park that I have ever been to! They had sand bags in the trains of Megablitz and there was tons a trash under the coaster! I also rode a kiddie coaster and I would have rode another coaster but the other people on the trip broke it before I could ride it!

657519956_TPRpictures2006162.jpg.adcff81de940798b86cf1ce592f04a38.jpg

After visiting Coney Beach I'm glad to be on the coach! =)

June 11, 2006 - Oakwood

 

Oakwood was one of the parks on the trip that I was looking forward to visiting because of Speed. The morning started out with an hour of ERT on Speed a whole hour before the park opened! After riding Speed a couple of times it became one of my favorite coasters. During the ERT I got a total of 14 rides on Speed. Once the park opened I headed over to Megafobia, it wasn't as good as I thought it would be but it was still a fun coaster. After I got the other two credits in the park I did the Vertical Slide and for some reason it scared me! After lunch some of us headed over to the Crystal Maze. I had so much fun at the Crystal Maze I forgot to take pictures.

1669556031_TPRpictures20061239.jpg.6619ceee51d2e99ce63baffc6f78e9ea.jpg

Goodbye Oakwood.

June 12, 2006 - Alton Towers

 

I was looking forward to visiting this park because it had one of my most anticipated coasters on the trip! I have been wanting to ride Nemesis for about 6 years and I finally got to ride it. Nemesis is now my new favorite inverted coaster. We had an hour of ERT on Rita a hour before the park opened. And we ended the day with about 30 minutes of ERT on my new favorite inverted coaster.

590494234_TPRpictures20061351.thumb.jpg.c1cb6a4a040b41edef42b58235d18aff.jpg

The best inverted coaster EVER!

June 13, 2006 - Drayton Manor

 

The morning started out with ERT Nemesis and Air before heading to Drayton Manor. We didn't need as long as we thought we would at the park since we ended up leaving about an hour early. Its pretty bad when a shooter ride and a drop ride are some of the best things a park has to offer! Also, I'm glad I got to the coach before the rain started to pour down. Once we arrived at the Big Blue hotel we welcome snacks and a pub quiz.

977372513_TPRpictures20061560.thumb.jpg.8923e090bd4fcfdc1e576976d0d64086.jpg

Forget waiting in this line, I'm headed back to the coach.

The Fun House was the best attraction at this park! I had a lot of fun on the wheel and I can't wait to do it again someday. I wish I took some pictures of the Fun House! =( After the Fun House we had ERT on two coasters which left one credit to get after the park opened since the other two credits were closed! Also, we jammed three boats together on the dark ride.

June 14, 2006 - South Pier and Big Dipper ERT

 

After we left Southport Pleasureland we headed back to BPBand we had ERT on the Dig Dipper. After the ERT on the Big Dipper I headed to South Pier to get my 200th credit. My 200th credit was Crazy Mouse and I rode it two times. Once I got back to the hotel I took advantage of the free WiFi in the lobby.

1344723476_TPRpictures20061309.jpg.dcc7fddf460b3390612ba6d345c2d2d5.jpg

You keep spinning until your back in the station.

June 15, 2006 - BlackPool Pleasure Beach

 

The morning started out with 2 hours of ERT. During the first hour we had ERT on Steeplechase and Rollercoaster. Then during the second hour we had ERT on Pepsi Max, Avalanche and Bling. We got to go on a Grand National walk back and we had ERT on Grand National later on in the afternoon. I liked Valhalla a lot and the water isn't that bad if you wear a poncho. I also went to the Hot Ice show that night since it was free for us, it was my first ice skating show.

1815724671_TPRpictures20062246.jpg.47ea040b09105296bb988e9021fd3c98.jpg

Great pics of BPB. Got to love that place for the amount of rides in a small area. Also, glad you gave a mention to Valhalla. People tend to give that ride the thumbs down, but I love it. Lots more fun than a plain water ride.

 

PS to martinb.. Please excuse my lack of coaster knowledge with the wild mouse/dragon fury thing. I am yet to learn all the coaster jargon, etc, but I am sure with the help of this website I will be a fully fledged coaster freak within months, if not weeks!

June 16, 2006 - Lightwater Valley

 

We visited Lightwater Valley in the morning. The Ultimate is very long and its painful. After I rode the Ultimate I rode the Rat Ride coaster and it was very boring. During the ride the lights came on for a couple of seconds, I don't if this is normal or not! Then I went and got my other credits.

1654935529_TPRpictures20062415.jpg.78054fdd92671329740a8714d59a49cb.jpg

I finished the park early so spent my last 30 minutes at the park waiting to ride this.

1653144587_TPRpictures20062402.jpg.56461ddbdf850e761a061e5c6efee925.jpg

I had a hard time finding this coaster.

952136953_TPRpictures20062376.jpg.4e4a6051fee646e9c5206c8a72045e59.jpg

The only spinning coaster at this park.

2126696134_TPRpictures20062349.jpg.7583c8026758087386e19fd58a22ea1d.jpg

This coaster is powered by gasoline also.

1148715965_TPRpictures20062323.jpg.4dd603c32a7dd6586252566bb9b48299.jpg

It has its own supply of gasoline.

1086576592_TPRpictures20062297.jpg.e0a3af9ccfd7ed7b0464a643c7f3f532.jpg

How does this coaster get its power?

2127913064_TPRpictures20062289.jpg.bf35be3ba84b7e073f7971166df8d79f.jpg

The ride was in complete darkness except for the lights coming on for a couple of seconds.

1118559910_TPRpictures20062287.jpg.b3636df88924fdadbc087e69b9000f91.jpg

We went to this park in the afternoon and it wasn't very crowed. Since we had ERT on Kumali and Velocity I got all my other credits first. After riding all the coasters we didn't have ERT on, I rode Kumali and Velocity just in case one of them breaks down before ERT. I will never forget the kids in the adventure course, they thought all of us adults were crazy.

227339937_TPRpictures20062630.jpg.e367cf89fdf64f9ad9159e7e1b4a5b75.jpg

This park had a one of a kind Schwarzkopf coaster! I'm glad we got a head start on riding it because the trains don't hold that many people. I enjoyed Enigma and I'm glad we went to this park to ride it. The sky ride at this park is extremely slow! Also, the 3D ride isn't 3D even if you are wearing the 3D glasses.

684146600_TPRpictures20063011.jpg.bc8218a55afbbd8d2c6a6847037aecc5.jpg

June 17, 2006 - Great Yarmouth and Joyland

 

I started out getting the credits at Great Yarmouth then I walked down to Joyland. It didn't take me very long to get all credits. After getting all the credits at both of the parks, I rode some of the other rides at Great Yarmouth.

120581962_TPRpictures20063184.jpg.67c981a504eccfe079fe18c4e7d5ae7e.jpg

1945559618_TPRpictures20063172.jpg.a12801dfb0cf07c7a383ff8cf84dce5a.jpg

2108336439_TPRpictures20063141.jpg.c82c6f552b4cbdeb34ba7cf2a66894f4.jpg

After riding riding this coaster I was done with both parks. However, I went back to Great Yarmouth and rode some of their other rides.

990075810_TPRpictures20063153.jpg.58e3b82a357e273bcfc810a2e377bf27.jpg

June 18, 2006 - Thorpe Park

 

When we got to the park there was tons of people waiting at the front gate. Once I saw all the people I knew there would be long lines today. I'm glad that we were able to get Fast Passes for all the coasters. We also got Fast Pass for some of the other rides including the S&S Swing which its one of my all time favorite non coaster rides. We had ERT on Nemesis Inferno and Stealth after the park closed. After we left Thorpe Park we headed back the hotel to drop off the people that weren't going to Norway/Sweden.

943139171_TPRpictures20063404.jpg.721389c8d48cb8f39c80f5b2ee876843.jpg

Since this was the last day of the official UK tour R&E had a gift waiting for them on the coach.

630315252_TPRpictures20063273.jpg.2375f5edea99ee6819e99a44bb694c78.jpg

I'm glad I rode Speed Monster first because it wasn't running during ERT. After rode it I got all the other credits including the water coaster. The ERT on the Thunder coaster was during the rain. It’s a great wooden coaster and it’s even better in rain.

529834692_TPRpictures20063625.jpg.1c7cd26ca4dc660b0a0ee58b4a4f71e0.jpg

You have to go down a escalator to leave the park.

1079636875_TPRpictures20063479.thumb.jpg.3529eea0b226f64cefd54cea1fd38689.jpg

June 20, 2006 - Liseberg

 

This was my most anticipated park of the whole trip! We got to enter Liseberg 3 hours before the park opened to the public! Also, we didn't just have 3 hours of ERT on Balder and Kanonen. We got to write on Balder and we got free merchandise. I rode Balder then I went and rode Kanonen. After riding Kanonen once I went back to Balder and rode it for the rest of the3 hour ERT session. Once ERT was over we got a head start on Lisebergbanan before the park opened. Liseberg was an awesome park and I can't wait to visit the park again. The only thing I regert not doing at the park is the Ice Bar, I'm going to make sure that I do it on my next visit.

I took a fast break from Balder to get my credit on Kanonen.

 

Kanonen is short but it's a fun ride.

We didn't get to ride Balder right away.
