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


Recommended Posts

^^ Brian, I think that I know which one you were debating over!

 

That being said, as I have been so very much below average the past few weeks, I am going to go with my wife's guess...

 

5 duckies

Locked in!

 

I'm curious to see what really are duckies, at what aren't this round. I had a really tough time with them!

Alright, here are the 6 Duckies that I "think" I spotted, along with the one that I debated for quite a while...

Then, this is the one that I was really debating if it was a ducky or not. In the end, I decided it was too big to be a ducky. Hell, it may even be the wrong color. I mean, I am color blind, lol.

Wow, I completely missed the one on Jeff's shoulder. I assumed the Aquafina umbrella was everyone's 6th duck, and managed to convince myself that it was part of the pole.

 

I don't know how I managed to miss that one. It's so obvious now!

Hello Fantastic Friends and Valuable Big Mike Readers!!!

 

 

Wow, 2nd to last Find the Ducky Game for this season!!

 

 

For all the people on the bubble, time to get moving!!

 

 

Last week's results were again posted correctly by Brian, with 6 duckies and he circled everyone of them correctly, thanks again Brian!

 

 

Congrats to last week's winning guessers: sspaz1000, donkeyman18, robinschroder, GriffyTiffy, adamico2, rolercstrluvr, bottom_feeder_13, and STR8FXXXINEDGE! Rollercoaster Rider also guessed correctly, but since he also guessed a few other numbers too, had to be disqualified! Only 1 guess a week dude!

 

 

We kick off, man I have lost count of how many weeks we have been putting up 5 updates a week lol!

 

 

Whatever number it is, it will be another Find the Ducky Game!!

 

 

This episode comes to you from a defunct park, Dreamland in Coney Island!

 

 

Dreamland operated for one season on the same spot that Astroland did the year before and that Luna Park now resides on now!

 

 

The highlight of the park was the relocated Michael Jackson coaster from his Neverland Ranch, and since Big Mike never got an invite to ride it at the Neverland Ranch, Big Mike had to go get it at Dreamland!

 

 

Hope you enjoy!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Hope you liked a look back at Dreamland while it was there at Coney Island!

 

How many duckies did you find???

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

HOORAYYYY!!! Glad to help out with the ducky circling, and even more glad to be sitting in a lonely 1st place!

 

I read through this update and did a brief ducky count, but am not 100% sure just yet. Either way, a great update it was. I loved everything about New York and Coney Island when I was there, and I can't wait to get back. Bummer that this little park and coaster are no longer there, though.

Hello Big Mike Valuable Readers!!!

 

 

Today we have some video from an Alpine Slide in the Bavarian Alps of Germany!

 

 

If you are ever at Octoberfest in Munich Germany, this is a nice side tour, especially since it is right next door to Castle Neuschwanstein, which all the Valuable Big Mike Readers will see somewhere down the road on The Big Mike Road Show!

 

 

Everyone will be amazed at how fast Big Mike is going, all the while still taping and commentating the whole way down!

 

 

One day Big Mike will have the production staff here find all the videos on You Tube and time every person's video, and Big Mike is sure he will come out on top!

 

 

***NEWLY UPDATED!!!!!

 

Big Mike just couldn't sleep, had to go on You Tube and watch EVERY video on this alpine slide, and here are the time results!!!

 

ALL YOU TUBES VIDEOS FROM TOP TO TAPE:

 

Big Mike - 1:05.9

Cobb2000 - 1:10.6 (This guy rode laying down, thought he could have beat me, but didn't!!!)

Ran Arcade - 1:21.2

Ran Arcade - 1:21.2 (Actually rode twice and came up with exact same time)

Zeca2009 - 1:26.9

Wigs79 - 1:32.0

11true11blue - 1:32.3

Timlwalsh - 1:59.7

Fromthemount - Did not finish, crashed.

 

 

We knew it!!! Big Mike was the fastest of all time!!!! Plus, the only person who did front and back camera work!!!!

 

TPR members are spoiled having such a super star slider in their ranks

 

 

We have some pictures after the videos, make sure to watch the 2nd one too, it is the cutest thing as little KidTums gives Big Mike a loud shout out as she whizzes right by!

 

 

Hope you enjoy!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

 

 

Big Mike displays sick skills while riding:

Hope you enjoyed!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike
