Lucky Dog's first ferris wheel!!

 

 

If you cannot make it, Big Mike will try to get some photos and a video for all the Valuable Big Mike Readers to see!!!

 

 

We may even have a post ferris wheel after party at Nathans, so that Lucky Dog can have a little snack!

 

 

Hope to see everyone there, just look for the good looking doggy wearing the brand new Big Mike Road Show bandana!

Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!!

 

 

Getting ready to put up another Find the Ducky game tomorrow, along with EVEN MORE ducky hiding places at an amusement park near you!!!

 

 

Yesterday was a lot of fun as Lucky Dog got to ride the Wonder Wheel at Deno's in Coney Island!

 

 

Just to change the headline of the thread from Lucky Dog at Coney Island to the new round of Find the Ducky, we have to put something up just for today, so here are 2 links where Big Mike has been featured in a couple of threads!!

 

 

Enjoy!!!!!

The 24 hour clock has run out on printersdevil78 to make a draft choice, so orangecats2 is now on the clock for THREE picks, a perk for going out to find a ducky at a park!

 

printersdevil78 can select a team or player at any time, just post your pick!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!!

 

 

It's Find the Ducky time again, but for the first time ever, it is expanded to "Refer a Friend Find the Ducky"!!!

 

 

It is pretty simple to see that the same players play over and over again, just like last year!

 

 

Big Mike wants to see more TPR members play!!!

 

 

So for Round #3, if you refer a friend to play Find the Ducky that usually doesn't play, you and your referral BOTH win if either one of you guesses the correct amount of duckies!!!

 

 

Here is how it will go down:

 

Your referral has to "subscribe" to the Big Mike Road Show thread and also say who referred him while putting in their guess!

 

Both you and your referral win if EITHER of you guess correctly!!!!!!!!!!

 

Just post "Big Mike, I subscribed and Pirouettes907 referred me and my guess is 3 duckies"

 

Sounds simple and easy!

 

 

Page #1 of this thread is now pretty up to date! Page #1now contains the rules, the draft board, what players and teams are still available to pick, photos of all the found duckies, and soon will also have ALL the hidden ducky locations around the World too! Check out page #1 when you have a chance, it is command central for FIND THE DOUBLE DUCKY!!

 

 

Today's update comes to you from Keansburg Amusement Park in Keansburg New Jersey!

 

Big Mike had all the credits already and was just doing the good boyfriend thing since Megan had never visited there. Big Mike made a return appearance after visiting 5 years ago.

 

Hope everyone enjoys and is successful in finding all the duckies!!! This ducky game is rated as a harder than usual ducky game, so study carefully

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

 

 

PS - Everyone on the draft board, check out when you pick so that you can be ready when it is your turn!!!

165.thumb.JPG.fb9511ad00fe3a39ce961876feccb29a.JPG

This is the ducky that you will be looking for in this update, Guitar Ducky!!!

 

Count how many duckies that you find hiding in the pictures of this update and post your guess in the thread.

 

Remember, this picture of the ducky does not count in your total!

 

Good Luck!

Keansburg Amusement Park in Keansburg New Jersey!

132.thumb.JPG.8622890852bd6e8447028a0b7e4570a5.JPG

Parking is $5 around the back of the park, or you can park at the meters on the street for $2 an hour.

The break even point is if you will spend 2 1/2 hours at the park. We spent 4 hours.

Prices.

 

They also have wristbands for unlimited rides, prices depending on what day you visit or what time.

154.thumb.JPG.b966bf767e1380a3d45bea57f559ac31.JPG

Here is how many tickets it will take to ride the adult rides.

Park map.

 

The place is pretty big for a New Jersey shore park.

134.thumb.JPG.265841a6d1d23a2e03ef10db26e16986.JPG

Big Mike bought tickets for himself and a wristband for Megan, since she needed the two credits and Big Mike already had them!

120.thumb.JPG.3fe9131b6448c8b94e4d798f5d99f76c.JPG

One thing to notice at this park, they rotate operators.

Sometimes one operator does 3 or 4 rides and when it is not busy, it is hard to tell if the ride is even open or not.

163.thumb.JPG.8797a63f538831f1e4b5e5186a38272f.JPG

Case in point, Megan was just sitting here for quite some time and we had no clue if anyone was ever going to come operate it.

Big Mike rode 2 rides, and the Wildcat was one of them.

Amazing skill getting both of us and the ride sign!

Lift.

During the lift, you can see New York City off in the distance.

That's my Megan! :)

Fun ride and the best company!

Since Megan had a wristband, she rode again...

... and again!

Megan is super happy as this coaster was broken for the 1st four hours of the day and they finally got it opened for her!

177.thumb.JPG.35f721628b27e0d919159cf071eebb08.JPG

Do you think that any Big Mike traits have worn off on Megan?

181.thumb.JPG.6c606188357d80021387ba75d4f16201.JPG

That's my gal!

088.thumb.JPG.be9c386977255178534bb084d8c23334.JPG

Since we had almost the whole park to ourselves since we got there just about at opening, it will be easy to show you all the rides, games, and other stuff at Keansburg!

071.thumb.JPG.0144fee596f8bc94199cae901c2e15e7.JPG

Big Mike will show you the adult rides first!

This may look like a kid flume ride...

... but it had some surprise air over that hill!

191.thumb.JPG.425ae174ca2e40b153aab1e50d5e327b.JPG

You got 3 laps on this ride!

Now, the Statue of Megan will show you all the kids rides!

About time someone picked the obvious winner, MY YANKS!!!

 

 

coreysjunk is now on the clock with 13 picks!!!

 

Let's see if that weekend long ducky hunt will pay off!

With picks #10 - #22, coreysjunk (MR BEBE) will make it easy and select:

 

2013 KENTUCKY DERBY HORSES #1 - #13.

 

I've seen that look on Megan's face before. Definitely A: Shenanigans under the Boardwalk! WIth and exclamation point!

 

I'm gonna go with 7 duckies. LOCK IT.

Man, you weren't kidding when you said this round is harder than usual! Also, I had no idea Keansburg was that big. When I was there last year, I just ran in and got the two credits and split, as I was in a hurry to get my butt to Seaside. Looks like I missed out.

 

I'm gonna go with option "A. She just had a Big Mike delight under the boardwalk!"

 

As for my ducky count, I'm gonna go with a crazy guess of 9 Guitar Duckies! Lock me in, please!
