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


Recommended Posts

Some great pictures there! AFter seeing the Statue of Liberty ones, though, there is absolutely no way I would ever go up there. Those steps would litterally induce a panic attack in me.

 

As for Six Flags Great Adventure, since I will be there next Saturday, and chance, if I actually manage to find you, you would mind helping me navigate? Out of the group of friends I'm going with, all of us have either a) not been there recently, or b) never been there at all. Plus we will have a limited amount of time in the park (I believe we will arrive there around noon or so, and then our bus leaves back for school at 7:00 pm), so we (myself, and three of my friends- who ALSO swing dance!) would like to get on as many rides as possible.

 

And to round things off, here's another cheer for the big man!

 

His shirt is gold, he is so bold. He'll crush the other teams!

Big Mike's the man, he has the plan. He'll make ya wanna scream!

Great photos again Mike.

 

I don't know if I could handle those stairs, though. Not too big on heights!

 

That used to be me a few years ago but now I love heights!

 

Oh, just walking up the stairs to top of the Fun Slides at the fair gives me the heeby jeebies. The first time I tried to get on Goliath at SFOG I was actually in tears because of the height.

No Way!

 

Your the Captain of the Show Stoppers, the spotlight will be on you all football season

 

Have a great last show sweetie!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

 

 

PS - Why would they end the run of a show on a Friday night and not play on Saturday?

The venue was only available Sun. through Fri. Our home theater is being renovated so we have to take what we can get right now. I'll let you know when I get a DVD, since you're too far away to see it live!

Awesome pics Mike, I went to the crown myself not too long ago.

 

The next time you go to Great Adventure, keep a good eye out for the re-painted Parachue Tower and a ride called "Houdini's Great Escape", which has been SBNO for last year and this year so far.

Hello Fantastic Friends!!!!

 

It is time to get back to putting up some trip reports!!! Woo hoo!!!!

 

This trip report is from Coney Island, but not the Coney Island in New York, this is the Coney Island near Cincinatti Ohio!!

 

This was my first trip there and I always visualized this Coney Island near Kings Island as a small tiny park, but I was mistaken, its a pretty good size!

 

Our good friend and fellow TPR member Jared (Reon) works here also, so it was another chance to say hello to him for Craig (Iggyace), Gage (Iggyskid), and myself!

 

 

This trip report also has a new business venture for The Mighty Big Man!!!!

 

A few days before this visit, Big Mike was contacted by a local establishment who must follow The Big Mike Road Show, which is exclusively shown only right here on Theme Park Review!

 

A brief summary... You know how big stars lend thier name out to businesses, like a restaurant or a car dealership or a product, such as The George Foreman Grill or Mickey Mantle's Restaurant (went there with good buddy Rick)!

 

Well this business must have seen the star power in Big Mike and how lightning fast Big Mike is climbing the TPR standing charts, and they wanted to jump on the bandwagon too!

 

In the end, they had a few requests and Big Mike had a few requests, and a deal was struck! Check it out at the end of this report!!!!

 

 

Hope you enjoy!!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

They obliged to all 3 of my requests and as you can see, I let them use the Big Mike brand name and the rest is history!

 

Hope you enjoyed!

 

Peace, Big Mike

The last request was to have a huge parking lot so that the massive influx of people to come visit the new Big Mike store would have a place to park and to also make it big enough for buses, since I wanted to make sure that TPR trips could stop by when they are close!

803.JPG.c1ff99c71cb516351ec8e6a4f35af901.JPG

Big Mike's 2nd request was a no brainer and EVERYONE should be able to figure out what it was, to make sure that the Big Mike signs were done in the same gold color as The Official Big Mike Road Show T-Shirts!!!

799.JPG.5724fd01e580094eaad7be4baecbeffa.JPG

Big Mike on the other hand, since he was the most desired big name star on thier list, had 3 demands that needed to be met before he would agree to lend the Big Mike brand name to them!

 

Request #1 was to open a Mystery House!

 

Big Mike loves fun houses and dark rides and haunted houses, so he always wanted one of his own, so I put it as a demand!

 

They said that it would not fit in with the Rock and Gift store and I said "Do you really want Big Mike?

 

Here is the result!

802.JPG.04e84690dd98e6a74826982972388f86.JPG

The company only had a few requests, which was to be able to use the well known and widely popular "Big Mike" brand name, and for Big Mike to make a few public appearances from time to time.

That concluded the trip report, and now we are on to bigger and better things, Big Mikes new business venture!!

 

Introducing: Big Mike's Rocks and Gifts!!!

... check out Gage at the bottom, thats a LOT of water!!!

169.JPG.7a9825e727ea87650f7a723e6070bd50.JPG

Look at all the floods and the years!

 

The height does not look that tall here when I am standing at the bottom, but.....

170.JPG.7f0bee05b6b85892114c8b7bd03cd947.JPG

It is tucked away in the back of the park and you can see the river behind it.

My favorite thing in the museum was the Flood of 1964 photos! There is actually a "flood marker" in the park, so we set out to find it!

We took a stroll through the parks museum where they showed all the old coasters at the park.

We have ourselves a Winner!!!

That was all the rides at the park, so it was time to go back and get Craig!

Craig found his favorite midway game, the bowling ball game, and I let him play there while I walked around the park and got many, many pictures for the TPR Park Index!

096.JPG.31a69732127c5a040648b4cfa4460648.JPG

Big Mike figured he would try the front too and the ride op girls got in a big fight on who would help Big Mike! I said that they could both share The Big Man, so they calmed down and did.

102.JPG.3a759e3532b7219290ad01f6792822cc.JPG

I think this is about where the ride op girls figured out they had a celebrity on thier coaster.

Its about time you posted the not-so-great Coney adventure, Big Mike! I've been constantly monitoring the Road Show every day waiting for you to show the world just how awesome Cincy's other seasonal park is (I'm not counting Strickers since its only open a few days a year.) Once again, it was great to meet you for the 3rd time that weekend (also at HW and ofcourse KI), and I'm happy you enjoyed your short visit at the park I love....Coney may not be as good as KI, but its got immense history. It's gone through countless floods, many park redesigns, and without Coney, Kings Island would have never existed! (Funfact for those of you that didn't know: after the 1972 flood, Coney moved all its big rides to Mason and formed what became Kings Island)

 

 

Anyways, awesome job as always, and pretty cool venture you just got Big Man!

 

REON!!!!!!!!!11111!one!

Hmmmmm, let's see......

 

 

Meet a new TPR member and be a tour guide for a bunch of college girls,

 

Or

 

 

I don't think there is anything to beat that, so sure I will!!

 

 

I will have to slip away for a quick bit to go eat at my all you can eat lunch buffet, but other than that, I am all yours for the day!

 

 

As an added bonus, I will even bring my Six Flags Coupon Book for everyone to use since I have not used it yet and I know how money can be tight when you are young!!

 

 

I will bring my phone inside, which is rare, so call me when you arrive 973-632-9109 and we will meet up and have lots of fun together and get you through the park!

 

See you Saturday!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike
