Dave, you hit the nail right on the head! It's the people on the trips that make them so much better than anything you would be able to do on your own! Even if you were able to match their price, you would never be able to match the experience of visiting 13 parks in 11 days with 99 other people who share the same passion for coasters and amusement parks that you do!

 

I met some AMAZING people on the Mid-West trip and I honestly can't wait to do another TPR trip in the future and meet even more. You experience a park in a totally different way when you're with coaster enthusiasts than you do with just a couple of friends or on your own.

 

If you're simply not going to do the trip because you think you can match the cost, then you're not going for the totally wrong reason. The trips are relatively inexpensive for what you're getting, and the time and effort that Robb and Elissa put into the trips is evident when you're on them. They honestly do think every little detail through, and the trips are completely relaxed and hassle free. I would have gone mad sitting in the traffic around Chicago if I was driving, and would have been in a REALLY bad mood once we arrived to Cedar Point with no power if I was on my own. But because of having a driver and Robb and Elissa to sweat out all the work, I was able to sit back and relax on the bus and have a great time with friends in a completely hilarious situation!

 

But if you're going to come on one of the trips and just complain and be moody, then please be sure to sit on the opposite end of the bus from me so that you don't ruin the great time I'll be having!

Hi Everyone ! I have been reading TPR's forum for years now, and have enjoyed every minute of it. Now's high time I registered, because I'd like to join in the fun, and I'm really interested for the East coast Trip 2008. Will probably send my deposit for it before Friday. Robb and Elissa, if you're reading this, I'm the guy who spoke to you while Queueing for Tonnerre de Zeus in 1997. At that time, I tried to convince you to have a go on Dragon Khan (you still hadn't ridden it at that time... hope you enjoyed it during your Spanish trip) Well, enough... I'll introduce myself to you all, members in another thread. This is the 1st time I'm using a forum, so I hope my message will get across. Very happy to be able to correspond with coaster-nuts like me ! Hope to see you soon.

Hi!

 

First time poster so go easy.

 

I've almost decided to go on next year's Europe trip. (I say almost because I'm quite shy and meeting all those new people - well you know what it's like). I have a quick question about the payment deadline for the trips though. If I was to send payment via eCheque, it would typically take 9-10 working bank days to clear. Given that the deadline is only around 10 days away anyway, would it be viewed as 'missing the deadline' if my payment is sent but not cleared by the deadline? That is, if Robb & Elissa have received confirmation of the payment, but the funds haven't cleared yet, does that mean I've missed the deadline?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

There is a seperate subforum for each of the trips. If you get into the trip, you will be added to the forum.

This is for everyone on this thread. I am planning on coming to the East Coast USA trip next year and I was wondering if anyone on here would know the weight and size restrictions for the coasters at any of the parks we'd be visiting I have e-mailed each of these places almost a month ago asking them this same question and none of them have e-mailed me back yet and I doubt they ever will so if anyone on here could tell me if they know the weight or size restrictions any of these parks have that would be great.

 

Sincerely,

a lot of www.rcdb.com 's coasters also display the heigt requirments. I dunno about size, if you're have trouble getting into coasters in IE your home park, there might me some coaster you won't be able to ride. If you never had problems with size, you have problems now. (except on kiddies or other weird rides).

^^ and then some

 

Here is my experience on the Mid-West trip last summer. If you put in a deposit, you have a pretty good chance of getting on the trip of your choice. Even if there is a waiting list, ALOT of people change their minds or change trips etc... Don't stress about it and just send your deposit.

 

As far as size requirements on the coasters - on the Midwest trip, the Intamin's at Cedar Point were the "worrying" points. It seems to me that alot of people that were worried about getting on them - got on. Keep an eye out here and I'm sure that some of them will post later to let you know.

 

I hope that this helped - also, let me assure you that these trips are a BLAST - so if you get the chance to go - take it.

Hi ! This is just my second post, but it's an important one, at least for me ! I have just sent my deposit through paypal ! YEAH ! Now, I'll keep my fingers crossed to be in if a lottery is organized. Anyway, I have a question. I tried to find "echeck" on paypal, but the only thing I found under the "more funding options" was a spot to enter a four digit code, which I did. As English is not my mother tongue, could someone tell me if what I did on Paypal is alright or not ? I'd hate being refused on this trip because of a misunderstanding. any help would be appreciated. I could ask Robb or Elissa but want to leave them alone, knowing they're very busy in Asia right now.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the reply and I know about rcdb already and know every height minimum and height maximum on some of the coasters that we'd be going onto and my homepark I have no problems getting onto the coasters as there are only 4 one of them being a kiddie coaster but I can't get onto one of the HUSS frisbee rides but only because the rideops were instructed not to push down on the restraint anymore because a stupid rideop last year caused somebody to go to the hospital or something because they pushed down the restraint too hard on the person but that doesn't matter to me anymore because I don't really like that ride anyways but last year when I went to Knott's Berry Farm I was going to go onto the Excelerator coaster over there but the seatbelt was an 1/8th of an inch from locking so I didn't get onto it.

Actually I joined Weight Watcher's about a month ago and I've lost some weight and by next August I'll possibly be skinnier than Robb but that only if I lose about 2.5 lbs a week till August.

I lost about 3 pounds a week for a few months...

 

Have a big lunch, then just a tiny snack for your evening meal.

 

It works, and the weight drops off. Sure, you go to bed hungry, but that shows it's working!

 

It made me go from 220 pounds to 150 pounds, and the weight has now stayed off (now my stomach has shrunk, I get full quick).

NO ^ you take another 35 hours+ (just a number I thought up, lol) and rest, enjoy the memories of the trips you've just been on (and supremely organized, kiss kiss ) ---- and then get everybody caught up...

 

Mmmm'k???

 

Just a suggest.

Well after an amazing trip to Japan, immediately upon my return to the states I sent in my deposit for Europe. I can't wait. It was awesome to see the country of Japan via coasters and parks. I can't wait to do the same for "the old country"

 

Thanks again for a great trip and many memories and only a couple black outs...lol (boy those brits and gays sure now how to tie one on!)

How you doing since getting back, Shane? Your kids still going OMGOMGOMG over all the "stuff" you've bought and brought back for them?

 

And have you saved at least one of those things for......Christmas maybe?

 

Your concerned former roomie.
