So I went to Coney Island today. Saw that there was a ducky to be found, and I searched and I searched the area where the ducky was supposed to be but alas, no ducky.

 

But what I did see was lots and lots of cigarette butts, and other icky pieces of trash, and I also noticed that beyond the cement area it falls down into more places where lots of trash is tossed.

 

I can hope that someone on the TPR trip found the ducky before I came and haven't posted yet. But all I saw was a little area that needed a lot of cleaning up, lol.

Ducky area, but no duck.

^I'm pretty sure I did, I searched all around the area even asking people to move, and there was just lots of trash, so he may have been there, but there could have been trash on him? It really looked like that corner hadn't been cleaned a few weeks.

 

Maybe if someone else can get to Coney they can check.

Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!

 

Ask for something and Big Mike is right there with the answer!!

 

 

Well after a ducky game that had no winners whatsoever, this time it was too easy and every single person but one won this time.

 

The correct answer was indeed 10.

 

 

Big Mike has updated the draft board and it is 100% complete up to this second!! Check out page #1.

 

 

Also, many duckies have been found over the past few weeks!! Below are all the ducky hunters and the official results on if the duckies were good ducky finds!

 

Big Mike also added 4 new ducky hiding spots!!

 

 

If you are traveling to any of these following parks, there are still duckies waiting to be found!

 

DENO'S WONDER WHEEL IN CONEY ISLAND NEW YORK (Reported missing, need a 2nd opinion)

HAPPY HOLLOW IN CALIFORNIA

ROTARY STORYLAND IN CALIFORNIA

FUNDERLAND IN CALIFORNIA (Reported missing, need a 2nd opinion)

KIWANI'S KIDDIELAND IN CALIFORNIA

BUSCH GARDENS IN VIRGINIA

BAY BEACH IN WISCONSIN

MT. OLYMPUS IN WISCONSIN

TIMBER FALLS IN WISCONSIN

KNUCKLEHEADS IN WISCONSIN

LITTLE AMERRICKA IN WISCONSIN

CASINO PIER IN NEW JERSEY

 

Check out this link for the above hiding spots: http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1206620#p1206620

 

15 draft picks if you plan a trip to Wisconsin!!!!!

 

 

Finally, Big Mike is ready to unveil the Semi Final and Final round of the Not So Epic Contest!!!

 

These four players are now ready to compete to see who will be crowned Grand Champion:

 

HighRoller

Arosania

ahecht

and coreys junk!

 

These next two rounds will be more difficult and will need some effort, but in the end, being the Grand Prize winner will be worth it!

 

Since the Final round will take the most effort, Big Mike will announce it AT THE SAME TIME as the Semi Final round so you can get a head start!

 

 

SEMI FINAL ROUND:

 

The object of the Semi Final round is to get as many girls in one picture each holding a sign that says "We Love Big Mike"! There cannot be any guys in the picture and the picture has to be taken with any kind of ride in the background.

 

The two people who have the most girls in a picture advance to the Finals!! If there is a tie, whoever posted first will be the leader.

 

Example - Someone posts 5, then the next person needs to post 6. You can keep topping each other or wait until the deadline with a surprise attack.

 

The deadline will be when Big Mike gets back from the TPR China trip somewhere around September 23rd! Big Mike will post the Semi Final round is closed as soon as he lands and gets internet access!

 

The Final round between the last two people in the contest can start right now also, but cannot be posted until after Big Mike gets back from China!

 

In the Final Round, you need to take a picture in front of as many ride name signs as you need with a "Big Mike is #1" sign in order to get every letter in the alphabet represented! The player that fills all 26 letters in the fewest pictures will be declared Grand Champion. Again, if there is a tie, the 1st person to post will be the winner!

 

Example - ""El Toro" would take care of the letters E,L,T,O,and R. Get all 26 letters in the fewest pictures and you will be the Champion!

 

Deadline is as soon as your post reads November so that you can continue to improve through the Halloween events!

 

 

Good luck to all!

Now on to the new Find the Ducky game from Train Town!!!

 

 

Big Mike has been waiting to get back to Train Town for quite a while now!

 

The Dragon coaster at Train Town has managed to avoid Big Mike in two previous visits.

 

The first visit resulted in the park being opened, but only the front half of the park with the train ride, but not the rides.

 

The 2nd trip resulted in Big Mike getting stuck in too much traffic and not making it to the park until after closing.

 

Two strikes, one more and Big Mike is out. Let's see how things turned out this time!

 

 

This is a FIND THE DUCKY GAME!!!

 

Try to find all the hidden duckies in this report and post how many you found after reading. Do not give away the hiding places!

 

 

Good luck to all as there are many fantastic draft picks still available and it only takes ONE correct ducky guess to claim the Grand Prize!!!

 

The deadline for this ducky game is next Saturday at midnight, Aug 25th.

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Special guest Mr. Bebe displays today's ducky that you are looking for, a train ducky at Traintown!!!

Good luck!

TRAIN TOWN!

010.thumb.JPG.8366800bce67978cc5219df5e4df1699.JPG

Open daily!

 

Remember though as Big Mike has learned, having the park open does not mean the coaster is running, just the train. Call ahead!

A nice touch, railroad guard arms that come down when the park is closed.

Most of the track is hidden behind this tunnel, so lets see how awesome this train ride really is.

We are through the tunnel, let the adventure begin!

Midway through the ride, we pull into a wild west town.

It's time to check out the town while the train fills up with more water.

One of the building in this western town is a store.

There is also a school.

There is a jail too and that's where Big Mike found himself after teasing California Cool Kid.

062.thumb.JPG.3652ab251e5878fba0a37bb5fbfb142e.JPG

There is also an outhouse.

Time to go but can anyone guess which 1 of these 13 places that Big Mike has NOT visited?

073.thumb.JPG.77f0a79f57c8c119b61ed02a8ac5bee7.JPG

A nice surprise at the end of the trip if you are as talented as Big Mike, you can take a picture of yourself if you have perfect timing!

Here is the seat and I think Big Mike may get the final laugh today!

Megan doesn't seem as excited as Big Mike that he is moments away from finally defeating the Dragon once and for all!

111.thumb.JPG.971baeec1989d880ace4940e4bb6086c.JPG

Big Mike is though!!!

 

Coaster collected #1148!

119.thumb.JPG.b3681409158fef03382711f780d2b7d1.JPG

Bahahaha!

 

The Dragon managed to escape Big Mike's grasp the first time, and dodged the bullet the second time, but as everyone knows, Big Mike will always come collecting sooner or later!

 

Moral of the story, nobody beats The Mighty Big Man!

Now that business has been taken care of, time to check out some trains like this restaurant train.

These are real trains!

This car had video games.

This car had high seats that Megan enjoyed!

077.thumb.JPG.04613bb4771a1ffd3c1206fdaf2d24a5.JPG

That's a quick look at Train Town everybody, hope you enjoyed!

 

Just one piece of business to take care of before we leave.

120.thumb.JPG.4e6608169a1bdfc7add015371a201496.JPG

Big Mike takes it personally when he is defeated by a coaster, especially twice, so Big Mike just wanted to make sure the Dragon knew who is #1!

 

Sir Gooney's coaster in Tennessee, another multi time defeater, your next buddy!

 

How many duckies did everyone find?????

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

The Final round between the last two people in the contest can start right now also, but cannot be posted until after Big Mike gets back from China!

 

In the Final Round, you need to take a picture in front of as many ride name signs as you need with a "Big Mike is #1" sign in order to get every letter in the alphabet represented! The player that fills all 26 letters in the fewest pictures will be declared Grand Champion. Again, if there is a tie, the 1st person to post will be the winner!

 

 

Question...

 

You said "ride signs"... and I am curious: do walk-through attractions and permanent shows that have signs count as well? Or are we sticking to ha hard-and-fast "it must be a ride" rule? Thanks for the clarification, Big Mike! Enjoy your trip!

Very cool-looking little park! The train ride looks sweet, and that's a decent collection of flats. Will need to check this out next time I'm that far north.

 

Although big fail for the self-abuse restrictions on the plane ride.

SEMI FINAL ROUND:

 

The object of the Semi Final round is to get as many girls in one picture each holding a sign that says "We Love Big Mike"! There cannot be any guys in the picture and the picture has to be taken with any kind of ride in the background.

 

The two people who have the most girls in a picture advance to the Finals!! If there is a tie, whoever posted first will be the leader.

 

Example - Someone posts 5, then the next person needs to post 6. You can keep topping each other or wait until the deadline with a surprise attack.

 

Does the "no duplicate parks" rule from round 1 still apply? If I post 5 and someone else posts 6, do I have to go to a third park to get 7?

You are correct, it is Superior!

 

 

For the Not So Epic game:

 

Just to keep it simple and easier to understand, we will stick to it actually has to be a ride that you can get on and ride.

 

You can go to any park or parks that you want, no restrictions.

 

You can post as many times as needed, so if you post a pic with 10 girls and then lo and behold, a few weeks later you see a bus full of cheerleaders, you can improve your count until the deadline.

 

Any more quesions, let hear them!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Yes, the newspaper put up some bad info.
