Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!!

 

 

Welcome to another episode of The Big Mike Road Show!!!

 

 

Since it is Wednesday and we always put up a smaller park on that day, here is a park from Japan named Wonder Rakutenchi!

 

 

This was a great little park, had a little of everything, and Big Mike will show you the highlights, especially Big Mike's favorite, the Duck Races!!!

 

 

 

*Big Mike threw a surprise contest in one of his episodes last week for one of the few remaining and very rare Official Big Mike Road Show T-Shirts, and you had to read the paragraphs to find it.

 

Anyone who wished Lucky Dog a Happy Birthday would be entered into a random drawing.

 

The following people entered and have superb odds of winning the T-Shirt, which will be randomly drawn by tonight's red Powerball!

 

sspaz1000 - Red Powerballs 1-11

The Bebes - Red Powerballs 12-22

robinschroder - Red Powerballs 23-33

 

Everyone got an even amount of balls, so if 34 or 35 comes out, the house wins lol.

 

Best of luck!

 

 

Hope you enjoy Rakutenchi and the Duck Races!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Wonder Rakutenchi! Take my word for it, that's what it says :)

See, Raketenchi! :)

The park is up on a mountain, so you need to take Kitty Cat to the top.

Of course, you take Kitty Cat back down too when it is time.

The Duck Races!!!!!

a23.jpg.3754bd7c38fd77df97f162020e2ac4fa.jpg

Each duck has a colored neck band, and you bet on the color you want.

a13.jpg.452503bfc19f96fabc0cabd980f67716.jpg

After you bet, they are let go from the starting gate and the first duck to cross the finish line is the winner!

a29.jpg.7040eb188ccb9a1db6c21dd8deea5611.jpg

If you win like of course The Mighty Big Man did, you can choose a prize!

Peace, Big Mike

Big Mike goes down to the water to see if any dead bodies are floating by.

Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!!

 

 

Another full week of daily updates are in the book!

 

Wow, we continue to impress with Big Mike Productions dedication to keeping everyone entertained, and also bringing you coaster moments like the one we have today!

 

Not many people can claim this coaster on their coaster count, and Big Mike could not either, even though living less than an hour away.

 

The Mighty Big Man "Travels the World Riding Roller Coasters", but there have only been 12 coasters throughout the whole World Tour that have denied Big Mike a ride.

 

Well to be honest, there have been a whole lot more, but that is when Big Mike breaks out the Big Mike Charm, and usually it always works!

 

This coaster at Rye Playland, The Kiddie Coaster, has been on the denied list for a long time!

 

Funny thing is though, if The Big Mike Charm is not at full energy one day, Big Mike is always going to swing by that part of the country sooner or later again, and The Mighty Big Man always has a target on his denied coasters!

 

The Big Man continues year after year to knock his remaining coasters left number in the USA down every single season, Big Mike knows where every single remaining coaster is, whether it is a kiddie coaster, alpine coaster, water coaster, powered coaster, ANY coaster! Some people ask Big Mike why not go for just the regular coasters that most people do, and to Big Mike, he wants it all!!!

 

You can't be known as a Master Coaster Collector if you don't collect the small coasters at the tiny parks...as they have some of the best charm and uniqueness of them all!

 

 

Next Friday, Big Mike will debut his BRAND NEW 2012 ROLLER COASTER STAT SHEET!!! This is every coaster Big Mike has ridden, every coaster in the USA left to ride, every park in the USA that has a coaster that Big Mike has not visited yet too!

 

 

Until then, please enjoy Big Mike claiming and collecting another rare coaster credit!

 

 

Hope you enjoy!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Rye Playland!

079.JPG.67d8332eea2b1e79589b1bf9244c2ddc.JPG

The Kiddie Coaster!!!

 

Big Mike has visited Rye at least a half dozen times, with no success at riding the Kiddie Coaster.

 

The Kiddie Coaster is one of 12 coasters in the USA that Big Mike has been denied to ride.

080.JPG.2d9e335a21794b208d2a14c97136c2fa.JPG

This is the reason, they are very strict on the height limit!

Overview.

mag3.jpg.1c4052584a47e59bd9f100b93b3740ce.jpg

Here is what the Kiddie Coaster usually looks like, filled with kids only.

Here is what the Kiddie Coaster looks like today from the same exact angle, filled with Big Mike!!!

Away the Big Man goes, climbing up the lift!

The Big Man in full joy mode after collecting another kids only credit!

083.JPG.c0eac9c2fa0426e51ecf6830bf67d932.JPG

You can dodge and hide from the Big Man as much as you want, sooner or later, The Big Man is coming to collect!

 

Take another coaster off the list!!

 

 

Hope you enjoyed!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike
