OK. So it's a bit late, so what. I took well over 2000 pics on the trip, I figure it's time to post some. Hope you like them.

 

UK Forum members, check out the UK board for additional info.

Robb ended up fly as cargo. It was much cheaper to send him that way, and we collected him at the carousel.

Wouldn't seeing everything from the old man's eyes either mean it's all blurry or covered in smoke??

 

Seriously, nice start! Can't wait to see more!

Looks like Loo handles the stick well. Also, only 2 credits at Coney... are you saying that because you didnt ride the powered or because you are being dumb and not counting it? (perhaps you forgot in old age)

 

Not bad for a guy older than the nation he lives in!!

Look Ma, no hands!

 

Duh, that was me and Chris being part of the "Coathter Paraaaaade!" You have waaaay too many pictures of us all having a little too much fun on a lot of the kiddie rides, that Safari thing was just... Wow.

 

Gotta love the retarded look on my face in that Alpine Slide pic, I'm sure there was a much more flattering one than that taken too.

 

Keep 'em coming.

I didn't realize Dragon's Fury was ALL OVER THE PLACE! That thing has got a huge footprint.

OK. So we left Oakwood to make the trek Alton Towers. We actually made it there quite sooner than expected. It still was late afternoon/evening. Without an internet connection for pretty much everyone, the hangout was the bar at our hotel, Splash Landings. Nice place, complete with an indoor waterpark.

 

The late nights at the bar is where a lot of friendships were made. Even Robb showed up for the late night festivities (drinking diet coke) and many of us stayed up till 3am and later.

 

Anywho, enjoy the pics.

 

 

Fanboy alert: Pics of Elissa, Lou and "that Hoffman girl"

Getting their credits on Beastie was Dan, Rich (still NO signature move), Baron and "that Hoffman girl".

Look tantalizing, but....not.

Next up was Spinball Whizzer. Irrating music, not as good as Dragon's Fury, but, it did have a "sad and pathetic" line for me!

The castle is a long ways from the main entrance!

...and they put a very well themed Vekoma Mad House, Hex inside. Cool and creepy at the same time.

It's pretty big, AND it's older than me!

Love the castle in the middle of the park!

Whoop-de-f'n-do. Rita was ok, nothing to write home about, if fact, 3 pictures is too many.

Alton7.JPG.8f692a38bcab56f467ca2b8ead2964e6.JPG

Yep. It's a launched coaster.

Our ERT in the morning was on Rita.

The bar as it looked when we got there, just after a small shower.

THANKYOU for showing my 100th Coaster credit, Jeff! Very much appreciated. I was wondering if I'd ever see a pic of myself on that ruddy clown coaster, after all the talking, and pleading and general coaxing I/we had to convince the (obviously) bored ride op to let me ride and revel in my triple digits, heh heh!

 

Great TR so far. Looking forward to more of whatcha got there, lol.

And I wore the right "accessory" too, heh heh! My 100th Coaster!

Day 6

 

Started out with morning ERT on Nemesis. Afterward we boarded the coach and headed to Drayton Manor. DM was totally dead, and for a good reason. The park has become a total waste!

 

Fanboy alert: Lou, Nicole, that "Hoffman girl"

 

Fangirl alert: Couple of Aussies

... just a couple with some bad intestinal gas.

Saw absolutely no flying dragons....

Such a nice, friendly park.

Their food selection wasn't the best either!

Drayton Manor can cause gender identity crisis!

Looks cool. NOT! It's a sorry a$$ lift hill. I don't think anyone rode more than once!

AMDrayton8.JPG.a32b1bbccc5113a5236129167638f569.JPG

Even "Big Mike" fits in the restraints. But, they almost killed him too!

AMDrayton7.JPG.5030f13b8231cfc07f901d1562a21641.JPG

Lou wonders if they'll actually open the ride.

Time for G-Force at Drayton Manor.

Derek: VERTICAL LOOOOOOP!

Nicole: Jeff, go away!

Dave: Leave me alone!

Chuck: I can't believe I'm here!

Some people have called this a lame first drop. SO WHAT! Everything that comes after is awesome!

AMDrayton4.JPG.348023b98670d2bb352f77d59be13752.JPG

Ahhh..... The ride that be... Nemesis!!

AMDrayton3.JPG.f6b0ae409d3bb683c0440661eb061b8c.JPG

To get to our ERT on Nemesis, we had to go through the Alton Towers hotel.

^Remember when I said I didn't mind you posting any of the terrible pictures of me you took?! I changed my mind!!

 

LMAO at Chris poking Richard in the arse with his sword!! (Best sentence I ever typed.) Richard looks like he's REALLY enjoying it too...

 

Oh yeah, and G-Force was one of my most anticipated new coasters of the trip. And it totally sucked.

Chris is happy to finally be in a picture!

Cheesy ride. Would've been better if the guns and/or targets worked. (No, it wouldn't!!)

It was funny when Lou got stuck!

Lou: ooooh! Female friendly!

Richard: ooooh! Shiny buckle!

For no explicable reason I haven't really had much to say about all the previous photos but this park update brought LOADS back to me!!

 

Sitting on that damn flat ride (I can't even for the life of me remember what it was) was hysterical, I was annoyed because of the rain (compare the straight hair in the earlier photos!) and then sitting there waiting for them to fill up the ride with irritating 13-year old prostitots who screamed just because of the No Screaming signs... Grrrr. Chris could've got us kicked out after that ride, poor unsuspecting kids.

 

You should've explained that shortly before/after that photo was taken you decided to try and make me jump by screaming "BOO" at me, which didn't work, but made Kristie and Greg sh!t themselves!

 

Oh, and as for what Daron and I are doing in the last photo.... I have absolute NO clue! Daron, enlighten me?! No doubt that will be another pic that Daron prints off for his boss to disapprove of.

 

Great pics so far Jeff, I'm enjoying the reminiscing.
