Jo, no one found ANY of the Wisconsin Dells Duckies!!!

 

The contest is still going as I need to fill 30 something more spots before we start the Grand Prize showdown.

 

I am going to put up a Find the Ducky game within 2 weeks, and then maybe one more after that, so find as many duckies as you can

 

 

Peace, Big Mke

Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!!

 

Big Mike is back on the road this weekend and next weekend fresh off his visit to Maryland and Pittsburgh PA last weekend!

 

If there is one thing Big Mike knows, he can't sit around on his ass and expect to keep the #1 RANKING IN THE WORLD AT BEING CLOSEST TO RIDING EVERY USA COASTER!!!

 

New coasters are opening on a constant basis now and Big Mike is popping up all over the place to try to stay ahead of them and to ride the remaining ones he is missing.

 

This weekend Big Mike will be covering the state of Colorado!!!

 

Next weekend Big Mike will be covering the states of Louisianna and Texas!!!

 

Come out and say hello

 

 

So, Big Mike will keep all his Valuable Big Mike Readers informed of EVERY coaster that OPENS/CLOSES in the USA along with Big Mike's countdown to zero of riding every coaster in the USA!!!

 

 

So here is this week's update, with Big Mike's 2013 starting point at the bottom and the newest info on the top. This will be updated weekly as Big Mike collects the coasters he needs and new ones open and close.

As you can see, 5 coasters opened in the USA so far and TPR of course has covered all the media days with perfection:

 

Outlaw Run!!!!

 

Gate Keeper!!!

 

Iron Rattler!!!

 

Fun Coaster!!! Well, not the Fun Coaster. Robb got all the great assignments and Big Mike was sent to The Funplex to cover opening day of The Fun Coaster.

 

Big Mike got all the photos, stories, activities etc and will bring it to you on the next report since it is off to Colorado now!

 

 

Hope to see everyone in Colorado, Louisianna or Texas and keep up with The Big Mike Road Show thread for all up to date info on every coaster in the USA and Big Mike's attempt to dominate them all!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

 

 

PS - Just curious, who would be impressed if Big Mike was able to ride EVERY SINGLE BRAND NEW COASTER that opened in 2013 this year and who thinks he can actually do it???

Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!!

 

It looks like Big Mike will have another business trip this weekend in support of The Big Mike Road Show!!!

 

The Big Mike Road Show 2013 World Tour continues again this weekend with a trip to Texas, Louisianna, and Mississippi!!!

 

Fresh off last week's trip to Denver and the week before to Pittsburgh, Big Mike continues to criss cross the USA for his goal to ride every single coaster in the USA!

 

It is hard work to rank #1 worldwide at being closest to riding every single coaster in the USA, but Big Mike is still holding on tight to that top spot!

 

Last weekend, Big Mike dominated once again by using The Big Mike Charm to catch a ride on the Roller Coaster at City Park in Pueblo Colorado!!!

 

City Park was closed and was not scheduled to open until next weekend, but Big Mike managed to get a ride on the coaster very few enthusiasts have ridden!

 

Big Mike's new coaster count entering this weekend is 1,240 coasters ridden at 413 parks visited, with only 43 coasters left to ride in the USA and 24 parks left to visit in the USA!

 

Big Mike already knows that Fun Spot in Florida just opened two more New for 2013 coasters this week, so Big Mike has to travel once again to collect more coasters to stay ahead of the curve!!!

 

So, saying that, The Big Mike Road Show 2013 World Tour announces his Memorial Day Weekend 2013 Trip!!!

 

Friday:

 

Celebration Station in Louisianna

Dixie Landing in Louisianna

AND

Brookhaven Exchange in Mississippi!!!

 

Saturday:

 

Schlitterbahn Galveston Island

Galveston Historic Pleasure Pier!!!

 

Sunday:

 

Six Flags Fiesta Texas to ride the New for 2013 Iron Rattler!!!!

Sea World San Antonio!

 

Monday:

 

NASA Space Center in Houston

Houston Astros Game

and Zuma Fun Center Houston!

 

 

Even though Big Mike used some of his Big Mike Charm last weekend, he will have to break it out THREE MORE TIMES this weekend!!!!!!!!

 

Oh my!!!!

 

Zuma Fun Center does not allow adults to ride their coaster at all!

Celebration Station will not let you ride their coaster without a child!

and worst of all...

Brookhaven Exchange is only open 1 week a year for a fair and this is NOT the week!!!

 

THREE possible road blocks for Big Mike's quest to ride every coaster in the USA, Big Mike will have to be on top of his game this weekend, but we wouldn't expect anything less from the top ranked USA coaster rider, would we???

 

How many of these 3 do you think Big Mike will be able to ride?????????????

 

 

Well here is this week's updated Big Mike's USA Coaster Tracker:

 

(Keep in mind that every coaster tracker site has Dragon as SBNO at Lakeside, but Big Mike's top notch investigations can CONFIRM it is running, thus Big Mike's needed coasters went up by one and just as fast went down by one as soon as he rode it!)

 

43 - Big Mike rides Cyclone at Lakeside Amusement Park #1240

44 - Big Mike rides Dragon at Lakeside Amusement Park #1239

45 - Big Mike discovers that Dragon at Lakeside is not SBNO

44 - Big Mike rides Wild West Express at Glenwood Caverns #1238

45 - Big Mike rides Cliffhanger at Glenwood Caverns #1237

45 - Big Mike rides Blazin Buckaroo at Elitch Gardens #1236

45 - Big Mike rides Roller Coaster at City Park in Colorado #1235

46 - Gate Keeper opens at Cedar Point in Ohio.

45 - Blazin Buckaroo relocates to Elitch Gardens from Alabama Adventures (Marvel Mania), where Big Mike already rode it.

45 - Wild Kitty relocates from Elitch Gardens (Cactus Coaster) to Frontier City in Oklahoma, still on the denied to ride list.

46 - Dragon Coaster at Atlantic Beach Park in Rhode Island is discovered.

45 - Big Mike rides the Wacky Worm at Playland's Castaway Cove in New Jersey. #1231

45 - Choo Choo Express at Sir Goony's Fun Zone in Tennessee has been removed.

46 - Big Mike starts the 2013 coaster season with only 46 coasters left in the USA to ride.

 

 

That's it for this week, hope to see everyone in Louisianna, Mississippi, or Texas!!!!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

As these riders move on, so does Big Mike to try and do two things on Big Mike's Top 50 Always Wanted To Do List!! Both are close to Bay Beach!

The Packers are owned by the public, so they really get behind their team, as shown by the following houses by the stadium!

Nowadays though, I think the offensive line is the best place to put Big Mike!

Actually, lets take that back, the front office is where Big Mike belongs!!

IMAG2039.thumb.jpg.73d8c8e3cb98546c4d89a8b34245bf2c.jpg

Since Big Mike needed to show all the Valuable Big Mike readers even more in depth reporting on the Stadium, he took a private tour also!

The Lambeau Leap has become a well known way to celebrate a touchdown in Green Bay.

Lets just say Big Mike found out that doing the Lambeau Leap is a little harder than it looks!

Big Mike can actually say that he was on the field!!

Before Big Mike left, he wanted to do two things...

 

First was to check to see if the field felt like a frozen tundra, it didn't.

And second.....

... do a Lambeau Leap!!!!!

 

Big Mike accomplished both feats, so now it was time to leave and see the 2nd point of interest to Big Mike in Wisconsin......

The Fonz statue!!!

Big Mike was a HUGE fan of the Fonz and you can probably see a lot of the Fonz mannerisms in a Big Mike trip report.

The Fonz was Big Mike's idol back in his heyday, and was bigger than life.

Big Mike always wanted to meet the real Fonz, but I guess this would have to suffice!

016.thumb.JPG.c2da5128d119bde6e840232fe8918af7.JPG

Big Mike did get to really meet the Fonz (Henry Winkler) a few months later, and was totally thrilled!!!

Actually, Big Mike loved it so much he went back and met the Fonz again a week later!!

I hope everyone enjoyed Bay Beach, Lambeau Field, and The Fonz!

Remember, get out there and enjoy life! Do what makes you happy! Follow in Big Mike's foot steps!!!

How many duckies did you find??????????

 

Peace, Big Mike

We've visited that Fonz statue many times. Usually on the way to or from that Rock Bottom!

 

We were invited to a wedding in Green Bay this summer, but had to decline to another family event. Needless to say I was a bit bummed, since there's no way I'd drive up there to just ride Zippin Pippin. And the railroad museum up there is awesome as well!

Just heard there is a new coaster, not on your list, opening at the Daytona Beach Pier. You may have ridden it already at Blue Diamond Park in Delaware a few years ago.

 

Also, word is that the Wacky Worm at Ocean Drive Pavilion in North Myrtle Beach is gone and has been replaced with a new coaster. I will be there next week and will scope it out. Also, you will need your Big Mike charm to get on the Go Gator there as they have a strict rule about no riders over 54 inches tall.

The new coaster at Daytona I have listed under Joyland Amusements in Florida! I will be in Daytona in early June but heard it won't be ready by then

 

Thanks for the info on the Go Gator coaster, will have to call them up and see if I can work some more Big Mike magic!

 

Keep me informed after your trip please!!!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike
