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


Recommended Posts

Great TR! Kelly and I actually thought about stopping here on our honeymoon, but decided the price was a bit steep for what for us would have amounted to a kiddie credit, a shooting dark ride and a lot of scenery. Plus we felt a little awkward about going in without a kid. It looks like a place we would have enjoyed, however. Maybe next time.

Sorry for the double post, but I actually found 7 duckies, not 6 and I didn't want to edit my previous post. If I can be locked in for 7 that would be awesome. If not, well, I should've double checked my response before I posted.

Lock me in for 6 duckies in my first attempt!

 

By the way, what does locking one in do and what does that mean?

 

I think it keeps anyone from changing their original answer, which could ultimately lead to cheating in some situations. But that's just my guess, it may be just for fun!

 

By the way, locked!

Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!!

 

Keep those ducky guesses coming in!

 

Tuesday means that Big Mike will show you a place he went to while out riding coasters!

 

Today's episode comes to you from the windy city, Chicago!!!

 

There are a whole lot of little coaster credit places near Chicago, or maybe while making a visit to Six Flags Great America, there is a restaurant that my buddies Craig (Iggyace) and Cameron (Cameron) enjoy eating at and knew that Big Mike would too!

 

Kuma's Corner is the place and it was even showcased on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives!

 

Kumascorner.com if you want to check the menu out!

 

2900 West Belmont Avenue Chicago, IL 60618-5804

(773) 604-8769

 

The bar is themed to heavy metal music and they put just about anything imaginable on top of burgers!!

 

Hope you enjoy!

 

Peace, Big Mike

 

A clip from the show in case you are interested:

Big Mike was traveling on his World Tour of Coasters and was cruising through Chicago, home of one of the best burger places around!

Kuma's Corner! Yes, it is on a corner if you are looking for it.

140.JPG.e0997afacb67d448262442ca58224bc8.JPG

This poster sums it up well, as they put anything imaginable on top of their burgers!

142.JPG.f3bf0ebc9e0a30c9663a4c74e979d70a.JPG

Kuma's is a small place, but it is themed to heavy metal and the burgers are named after heavy metal bands!

 

Side note - Big Mike likes heavy metal and burgers!

141.JPG.27b730026064660748bd347183461ccd.JPG

Big Mike also likes the theming inside!!

149.JPG.72a6ddddd23727d08e3b0c65d3997f94.JPG

Craig and his son Casey were with The Big Man all day collecting kiddie credits, thanks to Casey!

Casey wanted to know what this green drink was and what would happen if you drank too much of it?

148.JPG.d878bbcdcbaf6d1cc0b4cbaf5c6d732e.JPG

Big Mike shows Casey what you look like if you have too many.

143.JPG.c6401845581e05d0cde7611f28fe10b2.JPG

Casey asked Big Mike if he could hook him up with one of the girls in the poster since he got me on all the kiddie coasters today!

Big Mike told Casey he would show him how to get hotties after dinner.

144.JPG.e19ef504b43ddc8677207cf3a20608e8.JPG

The best appetizer there is many varieties of Mac and Cheese!!

Loved it!

145.JPG.4fa73c67088d166c39809896fc70b9d8.JPG

Big Mike's meal: A Bacon Cheese Hot Dog with bright green relish on a hamburger!

Tasted wonderful!

150.JPG.3cb1cadf66b52fcd45385415b191f9bb.JPG

A promise is a promise, as Big Mike show Casey how to pick up the waitress with ease!

 

Can't wait to go back and hope you get to enjoy it too one day!

 

Peace, Big Mike

Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!!

 

Thanks for once again stopping in to take a look.

 

It is time to show you another small park, but in actuality, it is really a flea market!

 

Since Big Mike already collected the two flea market coasters at Uncle Bernies in Florida, it was now time to travel to Colorado to hit the Mile High Flea Market!

 

Big Mike tracks EVERY single coaster in the USA, and sooner or later he is going to come visit and ride you! It does not matter if you hide at a farm, a zoo, a mall, a fruit stand, a bowling alley or even a flea market... Big Mike will find you!!!

 

So today's episode is from Mile High Flea Market in the state of Colorado and I hope you enjoy it!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Big Mike does a little shopping on the way back to the coaster. At $21, these stun guns are a steal and they will help Big Mike with the line jumpers at the coaster! ZAP!!!!!

Big Mike is amped to try this craziness coming up!

453.JPG.65feb6cdf1e0ddc1353f749a60b77d8a.JPG

This element was so forceful that Big Mike could not even keep his eye on the camera.

454.JPG.b86df380106a3c438970a895e318a247.JPG

Chalk up another out of the way coaster credit for the Mighty Big Man!!!!

 

That's coaster #871 for Rollercoaster Rider.

Big Mike enjoyed The Mile High Flea Market and the chance to scout out another coaster credit that seems overlooked by most, but of course, not by The Mighty Big Man!

 

Hope you enjoyed!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike
