Photo TR: Valleyfair 2007 Opening Day


Recommended Posts

Alright. This is my trip review of Valleyfair and Renegade:

 

Renegade was great! It never slowed down. Fast, insane twists and turns. Pops of airtime everywhere. It's now my favorite roller coaster.

 

While some rides weren't open, my friend and I had a great time!

 

Be sure to check out the video of Valleyfair soon!

We all wait anxiously for the gates to open, and we rush to Renegade like those animals on Animal Planet.

Patriotic Wild Thing!

Yeah, the front of the park.

One of the greatest coasters out there! =)

And there's Renegade, the spotlight!

Renegade's hot!

tr8.jpg.5df69f837fda1e659b5bce95f3c90635.jpg

That's me, and my friend Mike (aka, the freshman that's in Calculus). The ride operator was so kind, he took a picture of us!...And we took a picture of him. But you won't be seeing him, he doesn't want to be seen. =)

btw, I'm on the left.

tr7.jpg.ac78164f04bbfd2a42a0e91324073281.jpg

Yeah! Same here!

tr6.jpg.35b6c91a88ca058887cb0d030d40c2ec.jpg

Happy riders!

Why do I have the feeling I'm going to die?

tr10.jpg.e6f2e4ed0f6d36dedb4e1f87a411ee75.jpg

Nice Power Tower!

tr12.jpg.aa63d188fb3adecebfcea03c23447e2c.jpg

Nope. Riptide was not open! But that's ok. I wasn't in the mood for claustrophobic flipping until your legs turn purple.

tr13.jpg.5e9dbe7f94736e1036d2aa772c127f7e.jpg

It's that bad Morgan hyper coaster. Even though it might not be the best, it still gives off the most intense airtime of any other roller coaster in the park.

Hey Freshman Calculus person! =)

I think Steel Venom is jealous because he's not the newest roller coaster anymore. =)

I like getting wet. I guess I Dan and I have different ways. =)

I'm jealous! Renegade looks amazing. Glad you had fun. BTW I know that the supports on Intamin Impulse coasters only go about half-way up the spikes, but is it just me or does Steel Venom look like it's about to topple in that first picture? Either that or the picture is just slightly tilted.

The main entrance, In my opinion is better than Balder's. =)

tr23.jpg.5bc554061b883c53f7e3a28cc06ef3c7.jpg

Back to Renegade! Yay!

High Roller! A nice coaster, with split second airtime.

tr20.jpg.fdc974d923d06317a90d50afa3017fdb.jpg

I also tried the new camera system on the Corkscrew. But they weren't selling any videos.

tr19.jpg.7e926dc148632413cfdaf2797baccf9f.jpg

Only one Turbo Drop tower was operating today.

tr32.jpg.f9a6d78cceb247d30ce3ae85a2067d27.jpg

Have I told you how neat Renegade is?

tr31.jpg.c5784b4b10a42d8abbc908098f8029b2.jpg

Another highlight!

tr30.jpg.2c9c0d2af01ecd06c0627d3192f0101b.jpg

If I didn't know better, Mike was eating his hand. =)

tr29.jpg.9e1feb58ecf8c7d713ddcde97ca91fed.jpg

It's Freshman Calculus and Erik. And Freshman Calculus is bored because of Excalibur. =)

tr28.jpg.80f414deb78b59ec00e2e82478c1c4ef.jpg

This is probably the best picture you can get of Excalibur.

tr27.jpg.9720d8da2ad51d3485bb642dc5d9d951.jpg

Excalibur, with nearly no lines at all.....Again!

tr26.jpg.3c743d7295486b086b206fdeec0a51ba.jpg

Yeah. It looks better in the other pic.

Yeah! We broke the rules......but then, who doesn't? =)

Hey High Roller. I like Renegade more than you! =)

The train flies by really fast!

This is a picture for all those perverts out there. =)

It's no fun waiting for 45 minutes to ride.

tr46.jpg.9a2964c57aa602793d946f12d67c8911.jpg

But it means no more Wild Thing for today.

tr45.jpg.f5762d79ac37f8963011a542055f9225.jpg

I found the ghost train! It's stopped at the mid course brakes. I'm not sure what's going on....

tr44.jpg.4662b463c69d71362307ad0190e38863.jpg

Look! There's the train! Wait, where'd it go? Oh, right, it's a ghost train! =)

tr43.jpg.a9b0ec2aa4ae15ff1bc2f6090d9a71c2.jpg

Another shot of the ghost train!

Also, there are six cars on the train, you just can't see the sixth, because it's a ghost train. A myth out there says you can't see the last car sometimes since the crash last year.

tr42.jpg.06404b4f3506237ac31442ce07fc6af0.jpg

What's this? A ghost train! On Wild Thing!

I end this trip report, with this beauty!

tr53.jpg.9fb5765764859e15fc1a3114c8db8f4c.jpg

Yeah. I bought a Renegade souvenir, because I love it!

tr52.jpg.e6c6dcdccee60751979617026594be24.jpg

I think it likes you! =)

tr51.jpg.89da6a6f1cf59839b9b47806d0b7afe7.jpg

Scary Calculus Kid!

tr50.jpg.e716ea53ad2d7d47847bfa11bd886036.jpg

Outside the entrance now. It's time to go home.

tr49.jpg.4601c5bcc46d597006dfb3828904102c.jpg

The Corkscrew! Yeah. It's one rough ride.

tr48.jpg.ce28da58ec3ea48ae854cb3702fdfb5c.jpg

Yeah. I gave Renegade a double thumbs up (notice how the ride messed up my hair). =)

tr47.jpg.bf17b9a16ac7329066e04d47bba81492.jpg

We rode Renegade one more time before the park closed. As you can see, someone blocked the entrance after we got off.

^^No, none whatsoever, unless you count an on-ride photo. I personally don't know what everyone is talking about with airtime on Wild Thing's second hill. I have ridden Wild Thing many times and have yet to experience anything more powerful than a slight nudge of floater air for about two seconds on that hill. Mamba's and Steel Force's second hills have WAY more powerful air that carries for a long time.
