Hello Find the Ducky Guessers!!!

 

 

Seems like the white ducky has struck again, fooling many ducky guessers this week, but not fooling most of the top players!

 

There was indeed 7 duckies to be found, and below you can see the duckies in the two spots that everyone seemed to miss and scroll back a page to see Brian's correct circled duckies!! Thanks again for doing that!

 

Congrats go out to Aronsania, Ahecht, The Bebes, coreysjunk, traincrossin, and STR8FXXXINEDGE!

 

 

It looked for a long time that no one was going to win this week, but Aronsania nailed it with 7 and everyone else followed! Hats off to Aronsania who only has 6 total posts to all of TPR, but 4 of those 6 were winning Find the Ducky Guesses!

 

Also congrats go to STR8FXXXINEDGE who has now taken control of first place all by himself in ducky wins!

 

 

Should be a good finish!!!

Maybe the sign out front saying Boomerang is closed was wrong?

Yeah, I guess the coaster needs those.

334.JPG.9ca04430885600816b22434a67b7c5fa.JPG

So I missed this coaster here, then it moved to Coney Island at Scream Zone, I went to ride it there and it was closed all day there too! Damn coaster is punking me!

No surprise with the way the day is going, Big Mike is denied to ride the Cactus Coaster, with this being one of 14 coasters in the USA that Big Mike has been denied to ride!

Hope you enjoyed!

 

How many duckies did you find???

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!!

 

It's Wednesday, so here at The Big Mike Road Show, that means an update from a small park on Big Mike's World Tour!

 

 

Today's episode comes to you from the Canton Christmas Tree Farm in Texas!!!

 

 

The great thing about this coaster ride is that this coaster is only open on a very limited basis, kind of like the coasters Big Mike rode at the Puyullup Fair, Barnstable County Fair, or Strickler's Grove!!! You have to hit these coasters at an exact time of year or you will miss them!

 

Well, maybe that is not completely true, that is, if you are The Mighty Big Man, Big Mike!

 

 

Yes, there have been times that Big Mike has ridden "kids only" coasters such as Percy's at SFMM and the Kiddie Coaster at Rye Playland, but those were open for full seasons.

 

There have been times like at John Ivers where Big Mike was granted special access to the back yard coasters too!

 

There have also been times where parks such as Schnepf Farms just open up their coaster during the off season for The Big Man also, but this only comes about by being a well known, slighty famous World Traveler Coaster Rider!

 

The special perks and VIP treatment does come in handy every once in a while and Big Mike had to use it once again here at Canton Christmas Tree Farm, a park that Big Mike was visiting in April yet the park only runs in November and December!

 

 

So, as always here on The Big Mike Road Show, Big Mike loves to go ride those hard to get, often rarely ever seen coasters and bring back all the memories for The Valuable Big Mike Readers to see, so he is doing it again on todays episode!

 

Hope you enjoy!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

The Canton Christmas Tree Farm is only open after Thanksgiving into December, for sure it won't be open in mid April, right?

With The Big Man today is Laura (cal1br3tto), and the reason she is with Big Mike is that she knows the magic Big Mike can achieve when it comes to getting those hard to get coaster credits!

Peace, Big Mike
