So yeah... Some of you may have seen TPR updates where a photo of a Hippo had the text along the lines of "Hi James" (Like in the Disney Hong Kong update) Or things like Hippo vs. Penguin (and later on Yetiball)

 

Well there is a reason for all this...

Its because Robb and Elissa just can't admit that Hippo is the greatest... Well uh.. I guess you need the back story.

 

So I worked at a summer camp back in 2000ish where a kid gave me this Hippo beanbag/water toy and as a joke we just took it around with us everywhere we went (Canobie Lake, Water Country, White Water Rafting... and more) well the Hippo thing kinda stuck with me.. So I just kept bringing him along with me places I went.

 

In 2003 I made a website for my Hippo that 'predated' the "Hippo Photo" thing. The site is long gone now.. But may come back some day. It was "www.WhereIsHippo.com" and it was just kinda a blog about the places hippo had been.

 

In 2005 I went out to Niagara Falls (for MFI and SFDL) and I took a photo of Hippo at the falls.. And that started the 'hippo photo' So from that point on I have gone around taking photos at different places with my hippo...

 

Hippo has been to every Country I have been to... And every state I have been in but West VA... Here are Hippos maps

First off - The Cyclone at the (now) torn down Southport park? That the pic of...?

 

On second glance...naw - the lift hill's too (ahem) straight here, right?

 

Then there's the WTF photo here - the 'caveman' on the scooter there...

(can't repost pic here for some reason...)

 

Man, I thought my beard was pretty thick on the UK Tour.

 

Apparently not so, hmm? Heh heh heh. What IS that photo all about, anyway?

 

Hey Hippo! You should be racking up some good mileage points for future credit whoring huh? GO HIP GO!

1) LOL! Penguins > Hippos!

 

2) I have Polar Coaster

 

3) That was so funny! The pictures were great and hippo is in every one (yet he seems photoshoped into everyone). Also, Hippo has been to every park I've been to (but thankfully, not every fair ). Hooray for PTRs of randomness!

 

4) The coaster is either the Hippo Coaster or Jackrabbit at Kennywood.

 

5) Am I the only person that noticed the fat kid picking his nose in the Canobie picture?

IS the guess a coaster Camden Park's Big Dipper?

Nope

 

Hippo > Penguin

Yup

 

Great job, you should update this thing when you go to parks. Don't stop it now!

I have a lot more non-park photos

 

I suddenly have the urge to play Hungry Hungry Hippoes.

Nope.

And Clarks is a roadside trap in NH. They have a bear show (They ride swings and a scooter... and eat ice cream.) but they also have this train ride where the Wolf Man ":mugs" the train and little kids with toy guns get to "shoot" him.. And he also toss's "TNT" at the train and such.. Its a cool little park type place. Been going for over 20 years

 

200 points for being in my home park Great Escape! 500 points for being at Hoffmans Playland! I used to love that place as a kid! Did you get on the mini roller coaster there?

 

Great Escape is like.. My home-away from home park. I go every summe 2 or 3 times. And yes I rode Hoffmans coaster (and Jeepers and Magic Forests)

 

I am honored Hippo was at my own Parawho's Kingswhat!

Been inside PKD,PKI,and Carowinds.... And outside of PCW.

Great! I loved it! Awesome pics, and Hippo is so CUTE! I think hippos are cute- I tell my bulldog he looks like a baby hippo. The one of Steel Pier made me want to jump into the pic and transport myself to the Jersey Shore.
