THE BIG MIKE ROAD SHOW - 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY PICS ON PG 769


Recommended Posts

Hello Fantastic Friends!!

 

 

I am still waiting for a few pictures to get back to Big Mike World Headquarters from the cool people who helped Big Mike out over the weekend, but I did get some pictures to start a little trip report!!!

 

Thanks to Sue, Dainan, Josh, Matt, Thomas, and Danny for the pictures in this report

 

 

East Coast Bash was a tremendous success, in terms of people wise!

 

It was a great idea of mine NOT to get any ERT on Kingda Ka and Nitro, as I would have had a lot of unhappy people lol.

 

 

I counted roughly 30 friends between Theme Park Reviewers, cool Acers, and new friends from Gadv!

 

 

Thanks for coming out to say hello to The Big Mike Road Show 2009:

 

Renee (nay)

 

Angela (ElToroGirl84) and her boyfriend Ryan.

 

Sue (Sue) and her husband Rich.

 

Jay (JayJay719).

 

Lindsey (crazyrider06).

 

Felicia (PhillyGirl) and her son Cameron.

 

Chris (gciichris)

 

Dan (coasterpunk)

 

Dainan (CycloneMan)

 

Matt (Speeddeamon128)

 

Chris (Wood Dragon 1998)

 

Bob (Flying Bob) and his coaster riding pal Deb.

 

Luko (simlesa)

 

Thomas (tomtom)

 

Josh (Josh Davidson)

 

Danny (Coasterer)

 

Kyle (Satchboogie3)

 

Brian (still no screen name?)

 

I would also like to thank the cool group of NY Acers that made me feel welcomed at thier event earlier this year that were also at the park and took some pictures for me, hopefully I will get them soon!

 

A big warm thanks to the members of Gadv Online who took Renee and I into thier group for the latter part of the day and made us feel welcomed.

 

 

NOW, if I forgot anyone, or messed up in any way.... LET ME KNOW!!!

 

Everyone needs to get credit for the Meet Big Mike Quest!!!

 

 

It was a pleasure meeting everyone and I hope to get to see you again real soon!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

 

 

PS - I need to downsize Sue's pictures, they will post later.

Despite ride operations it still seems like you had a great time. Maybe you should have alerted Six Flags that the BMRS would be in attendance. I'm sure it would have caused them to step up their game .

Youy're very welcome Mike. Hopefully we can do it again some time, because even though the park wasn't quite up to par, we had a great time

 

BTW: this person is Matt (Millennium Force 44). He's a good friend of mine as well

Hello Fantastic Friends!!!

 

The next stop on The Big Mike Road Show 2009 is Legoland!!!

 

 

Legoland has three roller coasters, and adults can ride all 3 of them!

 

 

I have a park map, but it wound up too big to scan.

 

 

I hope you enjoy!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Clue #5!

 

THERE IT IS!!!

 

It is a little hard to see being yellow and the cover is yellow too, but you can make out the white sticker that holds it in place!

 

GO FIND IT!!!!

 

Hope you enjoyed!

 

Peace, Big Mike

Clue #4!

 

You may have to get on your knees to see under the stroller cover!

Clue #3!

525.JPG.fdca979bf95b0864bfa15df5e540e358.JPG

Clue #2!

 

Notice that this is OUTSIDE the park!

 

Big Mike is not going to force his Valuable Big Mike Readers to pay $63 to find the Mikestery Card!

524.JPG.b216a9ebfd311bad8493ba91d5733fa2.JPG

Time for another game of Mikestery Treasure Hunt!!!

 

Find the Mikestery card to finish one of the quests to win a one week condo stay!

 

This is clue #1.

The big difference from other aquariums is this one has lego stuff in the water.

535.JPG.243ab0cf6f3b50f3bfdc5a233d8f087a.JPG

Not the best aquarium I have ever been to by far, but I just made my own fun.

531.JPG.c85b86e71d9ad646c416245b6e16ec4b.JPG

Kids get a gamecard to play during thier visit, and can win a sticker if they get all the correct answers.

Right next door to Legoland is the Sea Life Aquarium, an extra $10 if you get a combo ticket.

Technic Coaster!

I wanted to sneak in this door to get better pictures, but Big Mike is far from a model citizen.

489.JPG.2455cd67c3ce026ecc4091eace526e73.JPG

This coaster is very well hidden, so this is all I was able to get.

Big Mike thinks that if a family wants to go to Legoland and comes on Theme Park Review to check out the park in the park index, they should see more than just the coasters!!

 

So here is EVERY ride at Legoland!!!

Awesome TR Big Mike. I've always wondered what Legoland looked like and why it cost almost $65! I live really close to the park but I've never been there because it doesn't seem like my kind of place or price! The park does look pretty cool though, I can see why the little ones in my family love it! Conradulations to whoever finds the Big Mike Road Show sticker!

I love Legoland soooo much!

 

And they just keep expanding and making it even better! Yes it's crazy priced, but look how busy it is! They can and deserve getting that price.

 

Yeah, out of all the SoCal parks that we visited back in 2007 Legoland was our second favorite. While it's easy to look good when compared to Knott's, Legoland is just so darn intricate. I can't imagine the time invested in building all those complicated Lego creations.

 

Definitely looking forward to visiting the original Legoland here in a few months.

 

Also, for out-of-town visitors looking to hit a lot of attractions, you can get a Go San Diego card that covers a bunch of regional attractions and makes Legoland a much better value.
