PTR: Credit WHoring LA County

Recommended Posts

So my buddy just moved to the LA county and I'd figure I'd show him the sites and sounds that is wonderful smuggy Los Angeles County.

 

First off, we started at Scandia Amusement Park in Ontario. When we arrived, no one was there except maintenance guys that were putting the Halloween maze together. We walked around the park, tempted to operate our own rides. Then, these nice ride ops showed up and followed us around lettin gus any ride we wanted. In order to ride the Screamer we had to have 4 people to ride it so we convinced 2 ride ops to ride it with us so we could get our credit.

 

Next was Castle Park, even though the website said two days earlier that it would be open, it was closed. After having a chat with the people that own Castle Park, no joke, and trying to pay them off to turn on a ride for us...they kicked us out. No credits from this park today.

 

Then there was Adventure City, where we convinced the ticket lady we were ACE members (even though I was wearing a TPR shirt) to let us in the park. Adventure City is geared toward kids so you had to have a kid to enter...but since we were members of ACE we got a discount and got to go in.

 

Final Park of the day was Knott's...Knott's is Knott's so I'll let the pictures explain themselves for that park. Oh, and Xcelerator was broken and we walked on every ride and got to marathon Sivler Bullet for 8 straight rides.

 

The next morning I hit up Pacific Park cuz I was close to it.

 

Ok, enough blah blah blah so here's the pics and enjoy...

To quote Ricky Bobby, "If you don't like Big Red, then f**k you"

castle09.JPG.73913daf267568662f399d502a2f01ad.JPG

Mmmmm...juicy...

castle08.JPG.d3cd54e372216fee79be293bc8d6c288.JPG

Mmmmm...juicy...

castle07.JPG.79f3750d75b92a58b1aacfd411868508.JPG

So I introduce him to a heart attack in a little brown cardboard box

castle06.JPG.7545034825d8f21f1a65ad2bc2b70960.JPG

So we had some time to kill and Doug's never been to In-N-Out

castle05.JPG.50117a0814550aee8691943c98241ce3.JPG

Bye Castle Park, update your website so that your open where your website says you are

castle04.JPG.e1198b3eee3ac2d4d4ce93301fc6bae2.JPG

Castle Park, where we disappoint all the credit whores when we're closed

castle03.JPG.5f05df87a11ca8ecabbc1ac89252f4dc.JPG

So after talking with the owners and trying to pay them off to turn on a ride they kick us out, 2 missed credits and here's one, Merlin's Revenge

castle02.JPG.f236f4a100a1b44572f47cd7892876ad.JPG

Again, upon walking in no one is in the park and all we see are guys fixing rides...those are called maintanence people

castle01.JPG.d774f2626e48642d9632a9471ebc441b.JPG

Next, was Castle Park in Riverside. From here it looks like it's open

scandia20.JPG.05ef86fb308f72eed37ded646faf57b8.JPG

Thanks to Desirea, Nicole (not pictured), and Vicky for having to put up with us for the short but great time we were there.

scandia19.JPG.920a18619f4bb6e66ca83f9437f38103.JPG

That's Desirea spraying the slide with silicon and Nicole telling Doug that he's gunna lose...Let's just say that we FLEW down the slides and hit the bricks at the end. AWESOME!

scandia18.JPG.a727d2b42d70c99618451b29bceb88c9.JPG

Merry-Go-Round time, and we even got a ride op to ride it with us

scandia17.JPG.a1ba1aada85a1d3ff4d85cf3e997a777.JPG

After the Screamer it was Pirate Ship time...Doug smelled so I sat as far away from him as possible

scandia16.JPG.8361f78f88e2c206c77d3946fb0b7cdd.JPG

Yay, I'm on the tallest coaster in Ontario next to the I-15 freeway! Beat that!

scandia15.JPG.27efbc1a0a2cb81bdcbcfcf2acae0826.JPG

And look at the view....you can't get that on any other coaster in Ontario

scandia14.JPG.6e5bbba9761b1fb30673347dc8cb4caf.JPG

First drop!!! This was a very impressive coaster for where it is...

scandia13.JPG.4c6b2a849178396767e538eba4afdccc.JPG

Please nuts and bolts stay together!!

scandia12.JPG.6389beaa03136bf777a433c90104f522.JPG

So we decided to ride again and then we noticed this big, gaping hole in the track...oh god

scandia11.JPG.7300c7ed323447d68c19991a9c9dde6c.JPG

Lift hill enthusiasts...get the lotion

scandia10.JPG.959d00cf058a4f8ad75b170184f9462f.JPG

Yay, waiting in the station of the Screamer for other ride ops to get in and ride it with us

scandia09.JPG.973f4b363ce067e95d1e0b88fda9a1ae.JPG

It's like Dumbo and Disneyland...but not

scandia08.JPG.07ab7fe527799cae2d0f6f21a9ccfc11.JPG

Doug decided to ride a dragon...while I pointed and laughed

scandia07.JPG.8cbf49626a9800e79e71b327ff8d49f4.JPG

Scrambler!! And I'm the only one on it!!! Party!!!

scandia06.JPG.d45c72e4aac05a261206d90502a21e90.JPG

YAY! Credit Number 1 of the day...and we nearly broke it. It started going backwards on the lift hill.....ooops

scandia05.JPG.efb0a196fb77d6e54dac7a39f3a77f84.JPG

I think the wait is too long, I'm gunna skip this ride

scandia04.JPG.9f861a10068f5d5a46cabb2ebaa3cb12.JPG

Ok, so where is everyone?

scandia03.JPG.5731e89fe1dc51bdb76109c861deeda4.JPG

Scandia, where our ride ops ride the rides WITH you

scandia02.JPG.3d0bd5b166bec1b4c02cffeb929ce918.JPG

Whore #1 and Whore #2 ready to get their credits on

scandia01.JPG.b7b6cd25a7490ae305973855aad1cdad.JPG

What's that out in the middle of no where? A coaster?

Oh my god, the coaster ate all the kids on the ride! Oh the humanity

Sweet, I'm sad and pathetic and sitting in the back...I Rule!

adventure09.JPG.1f77f1ca5d467676da5ef8ee78ad11d3.JPG

Freeway Coaster, goes up and down and side to side and over trees and over rocks = fun

adventure08.JPG.4d106912038b78d7d86eee6be83d85fa.JPG

Yeah, another credit!

adventure07.JPG.a3d928c0e587f391a395da863cdccf03.JPG

Helix of death around a bush

adventure05.JPG.574e578012d87f959b593320a29df208.JPG

It was a very impressive ride for being in a kids park, it's like a wild mouse but minus the pain

adventure04.JPG.dc12d0782fceec578084c63f213724b3.JPG

Lift hill enthusiasts...still got the lotion?

adventure03.JPG.91ff667c4befa39685684d2d5c9bb0c2.JPG

Still not done yet but thanks for waiting!

 

Caution: whoring taking place

02b.JPG.5e475d14ebe56ea858fdd44a90fad68e.JPG

I think Doug has had enough whoring for one day...it killed him

knotts30.JPG.1128b88307e25b97020f17b0a46d9525.JPG

For all those fangirls out there...you know you want some

knotts32.JPG.30224ad2f405b8fba5d83814f5a49a20.JPG

Yeah, I think the cut trees on the track is a big hint that the ride is closed, plus no water in the lake

knotts31.JPG.c728806aad400771d251b51bff2ff82e.JPG

I think the boat ride is closed...just a huntch

knotts29.JPG.991e2ce5521f4713ec6ffc5dbd9acb82.JPG

So sad, another missed credit for the day and probably the second best coaster of the credit whoring trip (the best is yet to come)

knotts28.JPG.01e91b5af855e22ab0a6c1de92d25fa2.JPG

I think Xcelerator is sick...it has a droopy cable...poor guy, get him some chicken noodle soup

knotts27.JPG.77d184857fc67786cab87f4ed9324419.JPG

So this is where Xcelerator chills on the beach with an umberalla and puts back a few

knotts26.JPG.1969856f04b7626ed024c5f242369a33.JPG

Sagging cable, broken fins and the whole launch dohickee thing was a mess

knotts25.JPG.4a4cd60a167b9fe6b3546bd0b96cf24d.JPG

So here it is, Xcelerator broken and sick...they are ordering parts from Germany to fix it...YeeHa

knotts24.JPG.3ec0f166c0c711dc1417e50b0dcf33a1.JPG

I was thirsty so it was time for a little drink from a little fountain

knotts23.JPG.8fa104461536459d947db85cdf5a2c52.JPG

Screamin Swing, where the haunted shack once was. And because I'm cool I got to ride it for free

knotts22.JPG.c44c4de910c3267278501c508d523171.JPG

Yeah, we love pain and vertical loops and the sun

knotts21.JPG.369be61645dd2fbaf74ef65edb52f427.JPG

Lift hill enthusiasts....here's another

Boomerang, We make your ears bleed

knotts19.JPG.4ae80c8e61289bdd24b960c2dacfd786.JPG

Yes, the infamous ghetto "Sit Down!" log flume ride at Knott's...the best ever

knotts18.JPG.fd54b5498a9decfe0c9f83774bf274e6.JPG

I don't think we are high enough...Supreme Scream is still a good rush but not as good as those first generation Intamin Freefalls

knotts17.JPG.a3bc6ce2d626f95f7ed158f92858951b.JPG

This is a drop tower...people poop themselves on it so they only had one side open today but it was still a walk-on

knotts16.JPG.21351d7772a096f1eeb103a96e7163c4.JPG

Here's the train going up the back spike...still really fast

Here's the train going through the station real fast

So here are the fine ladies we met at Knott's and got some "other" credits

01.JPG.9a2be20cf7993ca76e318c8a8819f2c0.JPG

Got a little Captain in you?

05b.JPG.6ab0012d9eed44d584c2b3b0ea2ce263.JPG

I'll just get me some pearls off the necklace...I was hungry

05a.JPG.7b7f5ec589d2821671df5635c22143bf.JPG

This time its the lay between the ladies with the leg on one shot

04b.JPG.a167f2b83686feb6bef118df607f3d0f.JPG

Since Xcelerator was closed I'll get my other credit thank you very much

04a.JPG.4bf466dc1c9cf4d918efc35fad3277d7.JPG

The typical lay between the ladies shot

After the ladies, it's on to more whoring

pier09.JPG.81907eb093e5477b446124466d53e100.JPG

My friend Jackie was in the neighborhood so she decided to meet up with me and ride the coaster one last time

pier08.JPG.12907013e40b20180980a003e46b58ab.JPG

It also had a pirate ship...but I was here for the coaster, not the other rides

pier07.JPG.944258ce2363e9b2b8cf679fa93b33ac.JPG

The pier also had a freefall drop ride thingy...I wasn't going to be going on that today

pier06.JPG.1552a67c399a53c8a4d73f87aa3a3141.JPG

Cuz it has a helix of death it takes at 10mph

pier05.JPG.beeee7e62a5d0b62062c08bf5d016800.JPG

So here's the Santa Monica West Coaster, the best coaster on the credit whoring trip...why you ask?

pier04.JPG.1680bdae37db4b6b64866fececc2f6d4.JPG

For those of you in the MidWest...this is a beach...i live 2 miles from one! Don't be hatin

pier03.JPG.b0f80717eb5b03c050ae95f5806d939f.JPG

After lots of water and Sprite, I finally stumble to Pacific Park

pier02.JPG.85c2d77a68c2bdd78fdff9f7c67917bf.JPG

Booo! I'm a seagull and if you feed me, I poop on your car

pier01.JPG.ce49d82dfaebf4a7b0004ecf8c2e6127.JPG

So the next morning I realized I was close to Santa Monica Pier, and why not get that credit while I'm here

knotts39.JPG.c978a62981bd542399d557ea8620db10.JPG

I may have taken it a little too far

knotts38.JPG.c14736b3e8bc993cf8bee35ff0bb43ae.JPG

We whored all day so we had to celebrate

knotts37.JPG.69f1b85636f630858935d8461e7db593.JPG

So what's the best way to end a day of credit whoring? Grub and Grog

knotts36.JPG.545e51323426e3570e091d02a5611876.JPG

And I leave you with this final picture from Knott's...Silver Bullet

knotts35.JPG.eb9a39c82541603f151d98220c8ec10b.JPG

Ooooo, freaky colors and squeaky coaster

knotts50.JPG.f698d545b4b464f04096a2954a398c1a.JPG

YAY, i love Ghostrider at night cuz it's so crazy

knotts34.JPG.3250445ea755517d79e12d5c02ce0200.JPG

This is Ghostrider at night...can't you tell?

knotts33.JPG.60e160fe67b529f8b729fd1fe5beed0c.JPG

Ghostrider, used to be my number 1 wooden coaster. Still a good ride and still in my top 10

Ghostrider wasn't too bad this time around. I have been on rides where I could only ride it once cuz it felt like I broke a rib. This time we sat in the very front and the middle and the middle is the best place to be. The back, even though the drops are crazy back there, just beats you around like a little rag doll...Here's a hint, dont put your hands in the air...just hold on for shear shakiness
