Wow, that video was amazing!

I'm in such shock and disbelief, yet I'm amazed!

 

 

You and Casey are my heroes as of now.

 

 

Well thank you so much!:)

 

Yeah as soon as Robb took off the belt we were fine. We just had to lean foward a little and there was plenty of leg room in that thing. It looks small but it is just the head room part that is the killer. My legs were straight and the car was kind of comfortable because of all the padding in that thing. The bunny hills were horrible though.

Aw, yes...I was fortunate enough to see you two master the "Clench and Squish" more than once on this trip!

Finally! It's taken me a few days to make it through the 60 odd pages of Midwest postings. I just want to say what a great trip it was. It exceeded my (high) expectations. There are way too many highlights to mention (especially with my crap memory) but here are a few:

 

- the people on the trip.

- all ERT sessions were great for one reason or another. Riding at night with people you know is especially good fun.

- CP was as good as I'd hoped, especially with Maverick, Dragster and MilF. And staying at the Breakers meant I could go back and get dry after getting drenched. Twice! That alone was worth the price of admission.

- the people on the trip.

- Holiday World was a very friendly park and I loved The Voyage even though it beat the crap out of me!

- Hades - the underground stretches were great.

- the people on the trip.

 

Thanks to Robb and Elissa for a very well organised and fun trip.

 

Hope to see you next year on the Europe and/or East Coast tour. Only 10 months to go.

I see how it is. Here I go and stay away from the old jokes, then I get dissed. I have a lot I could say, but I'll take the high road. I am just impressed that someone who grew up using the telegraph can handle this piece of modern equipment.

Methos - The reason there is a giant cross next to the porn shop is because the complex was originally a Christian retreat. When they built the thing, I couldn't help but wonder who would want to go to a retreat in a hot steel building by the Interstate. The answer was nobody.

Hey everyone!

 

I apologize for the lack of updates over the past few days. It has taken us quite some time to get everything we've needed for the upcoming Japan/Korea trip sorted out once we got back from the Midwest so the updates had to be put on hold for a while. Besides, there's been so many other AWESOME updates from other people anyway!

 

So for today here is an update from three, that's right *THREE* parks! Mt. Olympus, Riverview Park, and Timber Falls.

 

Our visit to all three parks were very good. Mt. Olympus' new 9 foot wave pool was INSANE! It was a bummer that we got rained out of night ERT on the first night, but we did have our morning ERT the next day, and the park had more stuff opened for us to help make up for it.

 

I have to say that I thought all the woodies at Mt. Olympus were running very well. I was afraid that Hades might have suffered a bit or gotten rougher, but other than one spot (and I forget where it was) that had some jack hammering, the rest of the ride ran GREAT!

 

Riverview is a small little park that we always manage to have a bit of fun at. No Spinning Dragons for us this time around (we've had our spinnin dragons quota for the year!) but they did have a "Bouncy Bouncy" ride which was fun but nowhere NEAR as cool as the Zaragoza version!

 

Timber Falls was an interesting visit as the coaster had been struck by lightning the night before!!! I got the call in the morning saying they didn't think they would get the ride up and running for us, but they'd keep me updated throughout the day.

 

I then got the call littereally as we were about to board the busses back to Mt. Olympus telling me they got the ride operational again!!! So off to Timber Falls we go! When we get there, we found the three guys at the control panel pratically "hot wiring" the coaster to get it to run. (Not really, but that's what it looked like!) And they managed to get it all fixed up and running for us the rest of the day! HUGE Kudos for the guys at Timber Falls! Avalanche was also running great! The airtime hills were INSANE and the speed that ride maintains is crazy. It was a bit rougher around the turns, but the insanity of the rest of the coaster made up for it.

 

Anyway, on to some photos!!!

Bryan's 'All about Me' shirt is just special...and he must feel very honoured.

 

Bryan if you don't feel honoured you damn well ought to.

 

Thanks for the update which cheered up the end of a miserable Monday.

 

Cheers

 

Steve

that last picture perfectly describes how our time @ mt. O was = ALL ABOUT BRYAN!!

 

Mt. O really was an awesome park...minus the chicks @ the Hades station kickin us out when they already had canceled our ERT...

 

But oh well, Mt. O is still awesome. Especially those "family raft slides". FAMILY MY A-- those things were intense!

 

oh, by the way...Robb...SUCK DOWN THAT GYROS WITH JALAPENOS!!

^ That's what I remember the most about Mt. O, was standing at the foot of the pink family slide, with Christiana, Elissa, and Vanessa, waiting for Robb's raft to come down and suddenly seeing the water in the slide just STOP! Then the raft hurtling down!
