Good evening all.


Carmen from Tampa here. Have not been coastering in a while like I used to in the 80s and 90s. I live close to Busch Gardens and go when I can but I tend to get to Walt Disney World a lot especially since I do a lot of organized Disney runs through the parks. I have ridden about 350 coasters all over the US and in Mexico, Canada and Italy.


Have not been on Manta yet but am hoping for Labor Day weekend. Think Rip Ride Rockit will be open by then?


I enjoy reading all of your trip reports. Great sense of humor you all have.


Thanks for having me aboard.

Hey guys and gals, my name is Ian, and I live in Reading, England ( nearish to London ). My closest parks are Legoland Windsor and Thorpe Park. I also love to travel, Christmas, Halloween and socialising with my mates and family.



I am over in Florida from October 10th for two weeks and during this time I am going to be doing Universal's Halloween Horror Nights and Busch Garden's Howl-O-Scream. I am coming over with my parents, and as they dont do theme parks at the best of times, they definitly wont be doing these events, so if anyone wants to meet up at either of these events let me knmow, would be great to meet people from the TPR forum.


If anyone knows a place on the forum i can ask about meeting up with other members, please let me know


Cheers Guys

Hey peeps at TPR!


I hope I can be on here more often, but my PC is broken (so I can't use NoLimits ) and this is a school MacBook, so it has RANDOM topics blocked for no reason. Whatever.


I always looked at this site, but never joined. Yesterday, I thought, what the heck! Why not? Looks like a cool place to me!


So anyway, just thought I'd throw a sup at all of ya. And hopefully I'll be more active versus a "one-timer" user that posts 2 posts and then leaves, but who knows what this computer will do next...

I'm Andrew, and I'm from Johnson City, TN. I've loved roller coasters ever since I rode my first one, which was Alpengeist at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. My home park is Dollywood, which is only an hour and a half from where I live and home of my favorite woodie (Thunderhead). I love music and I plan to graduate with a music degree in a couple of years. I've been coming to this site a lot, so it's nice to finally join.

Hello there,


I'm James and I'm from Manchester in the North of England.

I've had an interest in theme parks since I was a nipper and have grown up visiting some great places like Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Alton Towers.

I hope to start visiting different parks soon enough and already planning a trip to Thorpe Park in the south of England, Saw The Ride looks pretty good but also there are some other coasters I've been missing out on like Stealth.


I visited my first American theme park Universal Studio's Hollywood last may, although not a true Rollercoster park it was quite enjoyable and the Mummy the ride wasn't too bad if a bit short.


Next park trip will be in September to Alton Towers once all the kids have gone back to school!

I don't normally do this - but here I go...


I am Cameron from Western New York. I'm into politics, film, and roller coasters, of course.

I'm actually a moderator on another coaster website, but other than that, I'm a pretty simple person. And there you have it...

Hi all!

My name is Daniel. 37 years old, from Stockholm, Sweden.

I have been a coaster enthusiast since early childhood, and luckily, i have passed it on in the family. My 8-year old daughter did 11 consecutive rides on the "Rutchebanen" on Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen this summer, and she was really mad she couldn't ride "Demonen" and "Vertigo".

When I don't ride coasters, I make video games. And play video games. I often play video games while at work. Great job.


My favourite coasters are:

Wooden - Balder, Liseberg, Gothenburg

Steel - X, SFMM, CA (I haven't tried it since it became X2)


Next trip will be to Tokyo in september, but I still haven't decided which park to visit, as I only will have time to do one. Advice anyone?

My name is Jake, I am from St. Louis, and I enjoy roller coasters. I have been browsing this site for a few weeks until I decided to join. The members on the site seem incredibly active, which is awesome. Although I have not traveled and hit many parks outside of the mid west, I look forward to doing so in the future.

Hi everyone from sunny Brighton, UK. I have been a closet admirer of this great site, and have finally decided to come out, stand up (or sit down - depending on the ride), and be proud!


I am Scottish and my first recollection of a coaster would be at Aberdeen beach. I eventually got a dream job at Chessington World of Adventures, which involved training at Alton Towers.


Just over 5 years ago I decided to go to pastures new, and now work for a major flag-carrying airline. Which gets me all over the world and to many far-flung parks.


However, finding someone to go to the parks is difficult, so often spend time in single riders lines (assuming there is one!). On the lookout for friendly folks to show me the way - especially in US parks...


Check out my Shanghai Happy Valley thread - just came back from there!
