Photo TR: Coaster Palooza 2007 Continues!!!


Recommended Posts

I'm going to give a few responses to some of the comments/questions.

 

Ted - I think going to DelGrosso's during the Italian food festival would be the best time to go. Maybe we'll do it again. Gloria in Italian should be interesting to hear.

 

Erik - Yes, we did make it. We also got to Kennywood, Idlewild, and Lakemont. The pictures and report should be up soon.

 

Schmoofy - We didn't ask about when the Flying Turns is going to be open, but I'm sure they would say, "2 weeks." It is an inside construction joke. Anyone that saw Money Pit with Tom Hanks would know what I am talking about.

 

Beemer - I honestly have no idea how many smashed pennies I have. I do have around 10 of those passport books filled. They have smashed quarters in them too! I have a lot of pennies in a box at the moment. I need to get a few more passports. Maybe I'll take a picture of them later. The one collection that I didn't get all of was Disneyland's 50th anniversary. Too many machines were broke.

 

Lori - You have a smashed penny from the Ohio Turnpike??? I would never have looked for one there.

 

ECZenith - Dante's Dungeon didn't do it for us. Man that's a lot of D's. The ride just didn't seem all that great.

 

Twisterbret - I hope you had a good time at the event, we did. The staff at Morey's Piers is great!

 

Once again, depending on time, I hope to get this TR up and finished soon.

The hotel we stayed at by Kennywood had a special discount for the park. This turned out to be a great deal. We arrived at the park before 10:30am. The rides don’t open until 11am, so we were able to go around the park without a big crowd. Once the rides opened, we got on everything! I won’t bore you with all the details of the rides.

 

Ted and Catrina arrived in early afternoon. The rest of the day went great! They showed us around and told us a lot about Kennywood. Thanks so much for coming out to meet up with us! It was great to see both of you.

Every day should end with a tub with jets!

IMG_0402.jpg.261e612760ba285a4d7a0b65931700bb.jpg

Bye Kennywood. Hopefully we'll see you again sometime.

IMG_0401.jpg.d985182293e966e954b20baa882f0d3d.jpg

There are a lot of old items here, but you really wouldn't know it by looking at them.

IMG_0399.jpg.5b96cf1bf8b1c1cf140fc3b41a417a1e.jpg

Just some info.

IMG_0398.jpg.d929e44fba5a40295b300b249410f295.jpg

Kangaroo hop. We were definitely pushing the weight limit with me on this ride.

IMG_0396.jpg.18645e79876c4ef24bb4913006ae4459.jpg

Yes he was.

IMG_0395.jpg.3aa6346ec4526f5dbe33c0e1da47819d.jpg

Once again, one of the oldest carousels is here.

IMG_0394.jpg.9afb98765b0734f72dba5bb9695b6a77.jpg

Funny

IMG_0393.jpg.5d4a565f5b4fd7c366b1a9d8e75a10a6.jpg

An actual camera in the alien's hands.

IMG_0390.jpg.c1ed7bfc893e23b65d2445cc69161501.jpg

But it's still a disk-o.

IMG_0378.jpg.7f1ee52f30dbfca48d666ddc5cc11764.jpg

There's a lot of nice theming.

IMG_0391.jpg.62043b5d29b61c46a7dacf824e2ad197.jpg

Onto their new ride.

IMG_0389.jpg.0c365da2625fc59903ddd2acc9537a6c.jpg

Phantom Jr.

IMG_0388.jpg.ba7912b0da60084629dde9d14ef032db.jpg

See, I am a little dry.

IMG_0387.jpg.7e36347ace4cc6d149a3af907c81e320.jpg

Ted, block all the water please.

IMG_0386.jpg.9367c4f39e99455d21b21ac81b0a9057.jpg

Coming down...

IMG_0385.jpg.c06d7b738c069b9656c54c41fbfaa15d.jpg

Going up...

IMG_0383.jpg.0c9deac272c16cae49fbe21e710f03ba.jpg

Hey Ted, you don't get wet on this, right?

IMG_0384.jpg.c1e134c9e955facdf7c9132489ae0eaf.jpg

Rick and Ted in line for the log ride.

IMG_0381.jpg.9d008612bc5ee7d0415f49e2503a8b5c.jpg

A second ride on Jack Rabbit. YAY!

IMG_0382.jpg.e1e2a0a49a4e395c4ff89dcc1896b099.jpg

Next up....

IMG_0380.jpg.22f1465852d0457b6bc1397ca88c7bd1.jpg

I don't think we would have ridden half the rides you both got us on if you didn't show up. Here we are in line for Garfield.

IMG_0379.jpg.84ff7d4be64206d6e1b37ae89b43f58d.jpg

Hey, look who's here. Ted & Catrina came out to join us. Thanks for coming and showing us around.

IMG_0377.jpg.6c345006f4655380ec8b76eb9afa73db.jpg

Now for a swing.

IMG_0376.jpg.7adfe2eced4db72ab35a73d94a369831.jpg

I found this funny.

IMG_0375.jpg.4b4adeca319eeb65ce6d4666221f0f1d.jpg

This wasn't his splash, but it was the boat splash here. It seriously has to be one of the biggest.

IMG_0374.jpg.9d21e337c115379cd0fc72695e1f87a9.jpg

Trust me, he's in the middle there and he makes it.

IMG_0373.jpg.f8ea3ddf4ba2bfa808f37e7de49e7b47.jpg

and now for the conclusion, I shall jump from this dizzy height into 10 feet of water.

IMG_0372.jpg.5b28d80abf9afe0c45f6944e06ddee80.jpg

IMG_0371.jpg.f05d5923b766cb636f0b66ecd2f9a157.jpg

I can't swim!

IMG_0370.jpg.cecf13f975283a474df8ecc7605c5d44.jpg

Weigh the anchor.

IMG_0369.jpg.1e21ee8a7c1929b6c32153365032ba49.jpg

Aaarrgh Captain, should we dive, or dive, or dive?

IMG_0368.jpg.1d3bc30ee3ca64bd458970ee02677b10.jpg

Here's the narrator.

IMG_0367.jpg.55570fe35e6ae245f408f27172004e03.jpg

Apparently it rains every July 29th in one of the counties here. They have 10 contestants, aged 15-17, try to win the pageant. No Jahan I didn't get any phone numbers for you.

IMG_0366.jpg.7096e8956e89ec9df03a6588a5283a70.jpg

Before the show, there was a Miss Rain Day competition.

IMG_0364.jpg.be6288081a68692b7b53253b0df193bd.jpg

Aaaarrrgh! Everyone is going with the pirate theme.

IMG_0363.jpg.2292537a0cb840c88975b7f149f6ef5f.jpg

We took some time to watch the dive show after lunch.

IMG_0362.jpg.9becf5840271bd43f8f3457321e7597d.jpg

Front row on Racer though.

IMG_0361.jpg.0010306ea1072eb0e7e781fdfbd3961c.jpg

Back row please!

IMG_0359.jpg.d3fa8da3a9513d5fcb006ce9655ba3fa.jpg

Down the first drop.

IMG_0360.jpg.ab26bcb601270931ecda608e643a6d15.jpg

Time for Jack Rabbit. I don't know why the girl in the front was already grabbing her head.

IMG_0358.jpg.7338f8f90b3692c0f828afa24b631058.jpg

The flyers go right over your head when your on the bridge by Jack Rabbit and Racer.

IMG_0356.jpg.44a129246be325c68466b9664aee047c.jpg

Sure, all smiles now. We are actually in the last row too.

IMG_0355.jpg.a122580ff87f19e1975a4fdcb2389095.jpg

The drops gave Gyendolynne some unexpected airtime. Mainly because I didn't tell her about it. :0

IMG_0354.jpg.f73b86e0595028248005face384b929b.jpg

YAY! Another woodie.

IMG_0352.jpg.e74ef0a3b10ee8550a33a62a4bd38f2f.jpg

I think this old couple might be Gyendolynne and I in about 40 years. :)

IMG_0351.jpg.7cf7cad49f45d25d6b21c239bd95f46e.jpg

Only complaint at this park. There should be fans in the queue area. It gets extremely hot up there.

IMG_0350.jpg.9f8896ee99b64fe7ae97fdb1d1b2a723.jpg

Gyendolynne looks scared. I think she is more worried that there aren't any fans in the queue area upstairs. Seriously, why aren't there any fans!!!!

IMG_0348.jpg.add3a66d02d07fda407c293ac4a8255e.jpg

This was operating and we rode it.

IMG_0349.jpg.fd4eb62efe5dcc6f2f4e05a43dc57b82.jpg

The ride op is reading Catch-22. I actually couldn't believe this, but I guess you have to catch up on your reading sometime.

IMG_0347.jpg.c6792de4377c37ac0357f4fda20bcd79.jpg

Our first ride of the day.

IMG_0346.jpg.433dc24228ad2c9a8bad39feaf167071.jpg

We thought this picture might turn out nice.

IMG_0345.jpg.a1750b1e6eacb0c02d7a99d561ab04bc.jpg

I would like to ride Thunderbolt with Kenny.

IMG_0344.jpg.ea3c4ef9a3a6f8c6aee2d01519513c4e.jpg

Over by the mine train, I think.

IMG_0343.jpg.ee04c2631c4799abc27f90e5314c7612.jpg

I have only been here twice, but this has to be the a light crowd. :)

IMG_0342.jpg.a575574326dd6014fbd2e494468c55eb.jpg

See, I told you it was early!

IMG_0341.jpg.69a8a425e1efa1dd71760005e52ee642.jpg

There's Jack Rabbit from across the way.

IMG_0340.jpg.7618a61a971f9adae85b3795260b781a.jpg

Some history for everyone.

IMG_0339.jpg.1b6fd51ffdfc2eef833c8ce2600826d1.jpg

Same here, but you can see what Kennywood looks like with no one in the park yet.

IMG_0338.jpg.e0efa447ee3def2adcbdeb4722205045.jpg

Here we are at Jack Rabbit. We'll get on this later on in the day. We were here too early. The rides don't get going until 11am.

IMG_0337.jpg.bfba247a58608433968ea78f2ed272bd.jpg

Hey Cowboy Joe, did you ever hear the one about....just swappin' yarns.

IMG_0336.jpg.0273b1f842a82ebd75634093af43780e.jpg

It looks like we're going the right way.

IMG_0334.jpg.2630ba9660774c461ee3dfa58041b905.jpg

We first have to go under the road to get into the park.

IMG_0332.jpg.76490f3b5e004f4b349d07207e5c2396.jpg

That's Phantom's Revenge in the background.

Hey, we're here for another thrill packed day at an amusement park!

Thanks for the photos Ted.

 

Lori, We have done an Ohio trip, I just didn't know about the pennies...

 

Little Coaster Girl, I had no idea you could take your dog with you. That sounds interesting and scary at the same time.

 

BeemerBoy asked about my smashed penny collection so I thought that I would take a picture of it. I haven't added many of them to the passports, but I will when I have the time.

IMG_5835.JPG.736ba08cccec3fb3f801a0aa28507274.JPG

Here I am with the whole pile of pennies.

IMG_5834.JPG.19cbee4444ce482c019733853bc25dc6.JPG

Here's the collection. Many of them are still in a couple of bags. The "smashed penny kit" is on the right.

You said that Morey's Piers talked about building a new coaster connecting two piers? Did he go into detail? I know that the 2 piers that are closest to each other are Morey's and the old Hunt's pier, maybe they will reopen The Golden Nugget after all, there has been talk of the Morey's family doing that for quite some time now. I hope so,I loved that ride as a kid. Wildwood does have some very long beaches, but there are ways to get to the beach without walking that far. You just have to know where to go. The beaches are very clean and free as opposed to some Jersey towns where they make you pay to go on the beach.WildWood is a great seaside resort with great places to eat and cool stores off of the boardwalk.We have a summer home down in WildWood and we have been going down there since I was a kid. I love it there. Next time you are Philly, let me know and I can give you a tour of the city or WildWood even, and I can show you off the beaten path of these 2 cities and show you some interesting places.My husband and I would be happy to be have you as our guests. Great TR. This website called www.funchase.com will give you a history of WildWood and some the rides and attractions that used to be on the boardwalk and in town itself. I'm a real WildWood nut. Check it out!

^^Thanks Justin!

 

^Bobafett - Jack Morey was talking about the rollercoaster at lunch time at the rendezvous picnic pavilion. He was looking towards the other pier (North) and saying that he wanted to connect a rollercoaster between the two piers. I think it is between the old Hunt's pier (next to where the Nor'Easter is located) and the pier we were at for lunch. Unfortunately we didn't stay for the group discussion on this. We really did have a great time at Wildwood and we would go again if we lived closer. I don't know when we will get a chance to go to Philly again.

 

Thanks for the comments thought and the informative website!

We ended up getting a great deal from the hotel for tickets at Idlewild and a discount off the room, just like at Kennywood. The discounts were so great that it was like a buy one, get one free.

 

The day wouldn’t start out all that great though. It was raining and pretty much a challenge to get through the park. The rain would be on and off the rest of the day.

 

Lakemont Park had $1 Wednesdays. It only cost us $4 to get into the park and get all day ride bands. Even with the rain, we were able to ride Leap the Dips and Skyliner. It is a really great little park.

 

Thanks for reading the Trip Report!

We leave our day the same way we entered it. There was such a downpour as we were leaving Lakemont and for the first part of our drive back to Fredericksburg. I hope you enjoyed the trip report. I will post just a few home pics.

$1 Wednesdays also meant $1 kettlecorn.

IMG_0567.jpg.4f3115890abb6a7417323312c7d149bc.jpg

Coming down. I am in the front seat all by myself!

IMG_0566.jpg.eb6fa1fe20b4396bc33b5deb806dfd47.jpg

The first drop provided some good airtime. There were no seatbelts, so I got a great lift.

IMG_0565.jpg.59686eb13c4c0e26a86d01724a52b268.jpg

YAY!!!

IMG_0564.jpg.f6ee55f6618a74ce635116e9ed93b806.jpg

Skyliner was running great!

Toboggan wasn't running due to the rain.

No seatbelts, no lapbar.

A couple of photos of the track.

Here we go...

IMG_0553.jpg.384c55c5489b712ccab02407bb4b9740.jpg

We're really excited that it isn't raining and that we don't have those ponchos on.

I know we didn't just enter 6-Flags! I can't believe he is texting.

First, some historical references.

IMG_0546.jpg.f230ee918c4a68bcee4fbc6094769fff.jpg

Hey Gyendolynne, what do you think about getting to ride the oldest rollercoaster?

IMG_0577.jpg.fea1dec6f6e762060b43b6107440cdb6.jpg

Onto Lakemont park where they have $1 Wednesdays! It is $1 to get into the park and $1 for all day ride tickets. $0 for parking.

IMG_0443.jpg.35fc6ad93cd50a083a75b2233edfc3a8.jpg

I will leave Idlewild with everyone's favorite picture.

I knew I was afraid of the Jack in the Box for a reason.

IMG_0526.jpg.5ebc450223794ed202c10a1ec2b3290f.jpg

Some things just don't look right.

IMG_0515.jpg.1410e9a3541e9a723b918e38b8cd90ca.jpg

Actually, little Red Riding Hood scared us because we weren't expecting anyone to be in there.

Aaaaaahhhhh! The big bad wolf!

Be afraid.

I tried this at Disneyland and it didn't work there either!

Hi Mother Goose.

The next few photos are of Story Book Forest. Some will have captions, some won't. I hope you enjoy the photos!

IMG_0445.jpg.2a79c3a20441790061307dec722c7c92.jpg

This area is really neat too. We took a lot of pictures here because the rain finally stopped.

IMG_0442.jpg.e972e6994c900d6a54902103592006e0.jpg

I really like this area of the park. We didn't take too many photos here because it was still raining. :(

IMG_0440.jpg.4a773027f226423ed9ae72d657cd9e7e.jpg

Yes, we're riding one of the oldest carousels...again.

IMG_0439.jpg.7891e3bc20d872f3f32809dba08381ad.jpg

They're all there!

IMG_0438.jpg.2993ccb0fee1be0215112b11f3275b12.jpg

Oh my!

Gyendolynne doesn't know what she is in for.

IMG_0434.jpg.121b13d19ad84d321b40d3440c303025.jpg

Oh man, I was just on this last year.

IMG_0432.jpg.464ef2636ec43beb343f4722abf1da24.jpg

Come along, come along...

IMG_0431.jpg.87311d2bb91e120c8f0413143f8566c7.jpg

Okay...

IMG_0430.jpg.a1e9680c821d41c122b4b42cd1fb4e60.jpg

More interesting facts.

IMG_0429.jpg.e80c62962b7e9323e98ae22734fd8677.jpg

The look from the bridge, yes there are a lot of raindrops still coming down.

IMG_0428.jpg.b54029bac0558516ba9ec1c384c6ad75.jpg

Time for Raccoon Lagoon.

Frustration at the end of the ride.

IMG_0422.jpg.5a9960110e3c01bfc5dbb342d7826018.jpg

I kept trying anyway.

IMG_0420.jpg.8c07288d3c1050d9ca3586d112fa26bf.jpg

Absolutely no snapping!

IMG_0419.jpg.0249f7722fa3a0a5e9574446fb31fb23.jpg

I'll ride, Gyendolynne will watch.

IMG_0415.jpg.a2b3776b807c4253e0ccb29cd856947d.jpg

Let's get on their new ride.

IMG_0418.jpg.5ca7276f900e6abddfa84f1c6690b6b1.jpg

It's not raining that bad now, but it hasn't stopped.

IMG_0417.jpg.183f0043525bbdb0e8ffb1558f550ff5.jpg

A little Rollo Coaster history.

IMG_0414.jpg.a38fa8864f152574722aa98e39ebed30.jpg

Oh well, we'll just get ponchos on and ride. As long as the rides are running.

IMG_0411.jpg.66dc04377c884652d186bfe1a7f8475b.jpg

Man, it just won't friggin' stop!!!

IMG_0410.jpg.235db871c9033ad44d79138d7819b99f.jpg

I don't know if I have to go to the bathroom bad enough to run through this.

IMG_0409.jpg.d526b7119b14510d9188758fce71143b.jpg

15 minutes later, it started coming down harder.

IMG_0408.jpg.edbe8053741dbeae4ec0cf90f7bc1d4d.jpg

We're dry though...for the moment.

IMG_0407.jpg.3d9b576af1505b333a9716f5ed0f9c68.jpg

The YMCA kids running from the picnic area to the bathrooms and back!

IMG_0405.jpg.64ded6f6de6c6350462d25c8029bb779.jpg

This is what the park looked like 5 minutes later.

IMG_0404.jpg.d37b8f8e5b16db1a6067fe212b0ee787.jpg

Boy, this looks familiar for some reason. The rain is on the way though.

Nice finish for the trip report. I've been begging Mark that we should go to Idlewild. I just HAVE to go to Mr. Rogers Neighborhood.

 

 

On another note, after we both bemoaned no penny smasher machines at Holiday World, I sent off an email and just yesterday got a response from RavenMaven. Happy to report the next time you go to Holiday World, be sure to bring those quarters and pennies. Apparently the machines got installed at the park sometime after Holiwood Nights.
