The Official "TPR Japan Trip 2007" Thread


Recommended Posts

Must be one of those "never in America" things again.

 

Actually there is quite a list of attractions and, uh.... things we found and dared to go on (see: Off-Pavement Gokarts here in previous RobbPost? ) and live to go on and on about it/them.

 

But definitely agreed they were not possible for the USofA. Even the way we got belted with water on Splash Bandit could be cause of a possible lawsuit, depending on how wet, etc. blah blah.

 

And Canada (where I live) wouldn't be much better on these things - following Big Bro etc. I keep hoping, though.

 

But hey, we got over whatever happened, and wanted to ride more!

Happy to provide you with a cool mew avatar, Pete--you do look like a maximum badass with that shotgun.

 

The shooting walk-through was the coolest thing at Central Park (and one of the coolest non-Disney attractions on the whole trip). Diavalo was pretty good, too.

Thanks for all the kind words Bill it was great spending time with you too. The same goes for Mark, Adam, Tom, Chuck(Great Picture) Brian, Rich and of course my roommate Barry and everyone else too. And I especially want to thank Miles , Shane and Steve to you guys are the best I had an amazing time with you. As for Europe until just today I thought I would do China. But now the more I think about it most of my friends are going to Europe so yes I'm doing Europe next year.

Just a quick word to say how much fun I had in Japan. Not only were the parks and coasters great, my fellow TPR people better. Everything exceeded my expectations. Hats off to Elissa & Rob; I look forward to my next TPR trip and sticking my hands in other new bodily fluids.

Check out our awesome HELL FIGHTER tank! We're loaded with tennis balls and a flame thrower.

Wake up Saddam Hussein and the other demons...we are about to ride ***HELL FIGHTER!!!***

There is absolutley no significance about this picture, I just thought "Hot Spoon" was funny.

"Hi, I'm Dan. Check out how hot I am. I'm so hot, that if you take a close up picture of my chin, it looks like a scrotum. No, seriously! It does! Ask Lou!!! If you would like to see a photo of my chin as a scrotum, email me!" mrt0ad13@aol.com

KidTums and mommy are doing OK!

tivoli12.jpg.3e4c72a9eb04ba124e8998bfc2e68a0d.jpg

Here we go! Very slowly, but we're coasting!

tivoli11.jpg.af55d348d4f4e5e555d6a367ed4d14d9.jpg

"Hey KidTums! Ready to get your very first coaster credit?" =)

tivoli10.jpg.88c2d58c83c19642829dce8d66bb855b.jpg

It's like one of those "Snugli" contraptions for babies, but this one is made for roller coaster riding!!!

tivoli08.jpg.de4e76e009825da7ae16e7003003225b.jpg

Aww....she's too little to ride in the "kids seat" so she'll have to use the baby carrier!

tivoli07.jpg.d629e1e6d8679c6c29ec6d239845071b.jpg

While Tivoli Railway is technically a roller coaster, this gets REALLY borderline as far as credits are concerend. It only goes about 10 MPH at the TOP speed, and most of the time it goes at "train speed" but it coasts the entire way. There is a "Child Seat" (looks just like a baby car seat) and a baby carrier for infants! The brochure calls it "A slow moving roller coaster that the entire family can enjoy." And they mean ENTIRE family!!!

And now the ride KidTums has been waiting for....the "Tivoli Railway!"

Odin Express THROUGH THE FREAKIN TREES!!!!

tivoli5a_tom01.jpg.0163eebd5f04e4b8138d8917ae38ed3d.jpg

It's a fun ride, but like most Japanese "Jet Coasters" it's about 100 feet tall, really long, and just kind of meanders back to the station at a moderate speed.

"GIMME SOME SUGAR BABY!!!"

tivoli03.jpg.36e574664c434551ef3f4c693f3c031a.jpg

TPR members take over! Those cooler than the rest of us take the front seat.

tivoli02d.jpg.94f0afde4743d7fd36f7c35a1377d648.jpg

It's sponsered by Coke which automatically makes it cooler than most other coasters in Japan.

Don't worry...this is Japan. Those aren't actual people. They are holograms. The train will go right through them!

The group is back on a train headed for Tivoli!

Hey Kidtums, did credit #1 have enough air time for you? How about those turns, looks like some serious G's.

 

Great pictures of her first credit! Better start making more numbers.
