Photo TR: Me, Guy and Kim Possible do SFGAdv & Dorney


Recommended Posts

Guy was in town for work so that gave me an excuse to finally go try and ride El Toro! He brought along Kim Possible (for those of you who don't know, he has some sort of fanboy or fangirl I should say, obsession with her). I guess she can be added to the list with Elissa and Lou. The ride down to Jersey was interesting; a few major accidents, hours parked on a highway and Guy passing through tolls without paying was awesome. During such time I got some lessons in professional lighting courtesy of Guy's trade. He sure knows his shtick. On to the photos....

How'd that ET pov turn out Guy?

Had a great time hanging with Guy and KP. Nice to run into Jeff, a fellow UK trip participant (Hi Joey).

KP loves Guy like Guy loves KP. Awwww.

See what I mean?

42.JPG.bdea25f65308037728550cbbd4e61f08.JPG

I don't think it's possible to take a normal pic of Guy. I'm starting a Guy fanboy fanclub.

An artsy look beneath Talon Grip of Death, I mean Fear, yeah Fear.

A little Hydra onride hotness.

Guy fanboy taking a pic of Guy taking a pic of his new FAVORITE floorless Hydra. Take note Elissa.

Guy doing his Corkey Steel Force fingers impersonation. KP is like WTF.

36.JPG.3f52c60c3ce3b3531bc4f06fc93fb1b9.JPG

Lift hill enthusiasts take note.

35.JPG.07eceb11dd253f0983a7a1d6a6d62d1d.JPG

Next up was Steel Force, with all it's wheels. Oh, and they were running three trains with 15-25 second dispatches. Hello? Six Flags, are you listening?

34.jpg.9d272e786c78299067c9b67ef85662da.jpg

Now we're at Dorney. KP liked Laser. I have no idea what Guy is doing. Maybe a pre-signature move pic? All I know is they didn't grey out on Laser.

33.jpg.164d0f8e637c375ece02d2d130dea096.jpg

Ahhh, that's why it seems familiar.

32.JPG.412688eb5c12f237f1459728c5e229e6.JPG

This picture looks familiar. Hmmmm, let me think....

31.JPG.abfd9b9c56e7bfbab3b0cb49894b67c7.JPG

I didn't feel like waiting 10 minutes for a train to be in the shot.

30.JPG.b2fef4ce1dadc1916753830c1e6a9913.JPG

Exclusive signature shot (beating a dead horse?)

29.JPG.055e873df3353d36ebbd3246f0bca647.JPG

ET through the trees!

28.JPG.5a2d24a47ff0b21a1555cebc2bf93137.JPG

I do like ET better than the Voyage. I can only describe it as if S:RoS @ SFNE and Balder had a baby, you'd get ET. But he's not better than his either of his parents.

27.jpg.4e8536d54d820f916fae8a57d6a9e650.jpg

In The Loop was at the El Toro Queue. KP took the mic from some chick to get some of that podcasting goodness.

26.JPG.7024ef8b9998c09209fc19688b2305f9.JPG

Guy's signature move of approval for El Toro.

25.JPG.959ad0fbc147723ddb7a8afee5a69024.JPG

But he's sitting next to an ACER. Is this sacreligious?

24.JPG.6851d3990c9824e477de1c55faebf7e4.JPG

It's old man Jeff W. (not Jeff Johnson) from the UK Trip!

23.thumb.JPG.8739406702008acaa85b1770c186162f.JPG

The train has just about stopped so maybe he's proving that coaster enthusiasts DO use deoderant.

22.JPG.e89af3d738486a38880c3933742d312d.JPG

Wait, who's that in the last train?

20.JPG.279dd3bce311755e9997a8b066ed1376.JPG

If Dan took this picture, there would be quite a lot of image editing. Look at KK!

19.thumb.JPG.7291902a5e0b0a78949a61f0c9123392.JPG

Ditto.

18.thumb.JPG.91f62ef78996f8c063b019e35febbed9.JPG

Hoo-ray for the coaster finally being in the picture. I'll have you know, it is not that common a site to behold due to GAdv's less than stellar operations.

17.jpg.b0b439faec8094bb4760e93281db0919.jpg

KP and Guy's afterglow on their favorite woody. Mine is still Balder. Hi Parktrips.

16.JPG.691ff503064576a7323de8aafc890146.JPG

Purty. Quite a nice drop for those who haven't been (cough Elissa cough).

15.JPG.159f2929e989daf2a0d75108d4be8f57.JPG

The fat noises emanating from the bowels of the beast.

14.thumb.JPG.a964c5089ee00284c403e299bfcda08f.JPG

Yeaaaa for the first riders!

13Kristy.jpg.60ad2f3871a085e648fc71cd634f8e78.jpg

While in line, a woman we'll call Kristy shows off her reactors to KP. KP wasn't impressed.

12.JPG.10266e6c6d2bb4461fc098c0f433e688.JPG

The heavens glow with the testing of El Toro!

11.JPG.36ba8a35436c75cfd88665af73e61a2b.JPG

MMMMM..hope it makes the intamin "Fat" noise....I mean fart noise. Hi Robb.

10.JPG.756a8f3297b6931ad33218611ac9abbf.JPG

El Toro twisty bits. Sorry no train. It wasn't open yet despite the park being open for an hour.

9.JPG.26e1951a0950db13322679c2c2281bcc.JPG

Still "reeling" from the recording mishap. Get it? Reeling.

8.jpg.907947d252d35b82763ab3513aec9254.jpg

Is KP upset because 1. she didn't like KK, 2. Guy excluded her from the picture or 3. Guy's professional training failed him to take POV? If you know the answer, email Dan (j/k)

7.JPG.96fdd139f06aeafd4bb099022583ab39.JPG

etc, etc. I got nothing else.

6.JPG.14d1d3c3b7e3daf70bcc6eb464a6f987.JPG

KK.....yawn, I mean yea.

5.JPG.e717bbcacdd96e52511f8529dc1ddbd2.JPG

Pre-launch pic.

4.JPG.5e1b11bf211a64e99cda7dcbcad39fd7.JPG

KP took our photo while waiting for the front seat of the second launched train. I must say it was a much better ride in the front than any of the other seats.

3.JPG.ec785860edd3e94dc5ead5e3d8528899.JPG

So missing Guy credit #1. We made a B-line to KK which was actually open when the park was.

2.jpg.a1e29aa87a4d60911837f7569d07f70a.jpg

Guy had this "Beavis and Butthead" hair thing going on before the Jersey air got to it.

1.jpg.32e9bec5af5218807e72a62f2edcf7c0.jpg

I thought we do a little cheerleading before the trip, but Guy just wanted to go to GAdv to get his missing credits.

I was at SFGADv on the same day you were there and I knew I saw some poeple from TPR. I think I saw you guys. Guy did you take a small video of El Toro's sign?

 

Anyway, Great Photo TR! It was hilarious. Im glad to see you guys like El Toro!

Blimey Rich.....Signature moves, Merrells, and uber witty PTR captions along with fame on the AR thing - you will obviously be deserving of your own fan club right now 8)

 

Seriously though, I enjoyed the report, and interesting observation of the mating of roller coasters and their subsequent spawn specifically

 

Cheers

What an awesome TR Rich!! The photoshopping was great, glad to see that Kim had fun there with you!

 

I'm Guy's number one fangirl, he and I have a mutual appreciation going on, so maybe I can join your club.

Wow, you both came to my neck of the woods and didn't even bother telling me. You had both better hope I was busy on those days, or someone is going to pay!

 

Sorry Derek. You can blame Guy all the way He was the one who was choosing destinations and stuff. Our initial plan changed slightly due to traffic and stuff. Plus we were only there a few hours. Next time (and there will be a next time) I will give you a shout.

 

And thanks to all for the kind words, so far! (except canobie fan....I want my Balder hammer you hoarder!)
