The Official TPR "East Coast/Behemoth Trip" Update


Recommended Posts

I also rode some dreadful coasters, but the people even made those fun.

 

Haha, dude, Leap the Dips is going down in history as my worst coaster ride EVER. Every time someone even mentions it my back start to hurt. BUT, it was hilarious and I wouldn't have had my 250th spent any other way. And the Toboggan, haha! Something tells me shakes over scary psycho flat saved us and our backs that day!

 

1. Random power outage

2. Ravine Flyer II in a thunderstorm at night on fire*

3. The 'Tainted Love' Caterpillar ride

4. SAUCE

5. The Puppet Show

 

6. Rolo says "No Hats" and asks "Does this get you wet?"

 

Aww, dude, you're being missed on East Coast a lot.

 

And basically, the Behemoth trip was freakin' UNBELIEVABLE! I've hands down never hurt from laughing so much as I did those few days, and must echo what everyone else has said (as long as it was positive). RFII was the ride highlight, with Behemoth just behind, but it was everything else that made the trip. I mainly think it was the SAUCE. And Trevor! FUNNIEST SHOW EVER! Leading to possibly my favourite photo of the trip...

 

 

Hahahaha! Trevor, woo!

I couldn't make the full trip, but coincidentally I ended up being at Waldameer (home park) anyways the day that TPR was there...

 

Thanks to Robb again for the TPR band and ERT time... it was the most unbelievable experience riding in the blinding rain, thunder, and lightning. It was so unbelievably fun and insane.

 

It was cool to meet a lot of you, and to leave it with one thing.

 

I'm only happy when it rains...

 

Thanks for day Robb!

I just want to say Boulder Dash was so amazing. It is the craziest coaster I have ever been on... it never slows down, is so out of control, and has so much airtime. Not to mention it was pitch black during ERT and we could not see a thing. I honestly don't know if I can get across how crazy it is.

 

Speaking of ERT, what an awesome crew! I can't wait to see what Robb captured on video and includes on the dvd.

^^ Jeff that's awesome! Glad you said it since you have more clout in this merry band of enthusiasts than many of us. Was wondering same, but didn't want to create a problem by asking, kidding or otherwise.

 

Looking forward to all the stories and pics when everybody get's back safe. No doubt, this will be epic.

 

Oh, and what's the the deal with "The Sauce" or "Sauce Factory? Well, somebody has to ask!

 

Cheers and best to all on the trip.

I like your creative use of umm,resources?

 

Actually, I just copied a picture from the photoshop contest that happened during the Spain trip last year.

 

Oh, and what's the the deal with "The Sauce" or "Sauce Factory?

 

I have NO idea! But I'm looking forward to it like everyone else!!

I actually only got there just as the (exclusive!) group was leaving. It seriously looked like an employee entrance with the nondescript door... is it even on the map?

 

In the same vein, it amazed me just how much of a 'melting pot' CW is. I remember on Sunday hanging out by the boat splash and seeing people of all faiths laughing their heads off with each other on the bridge; it was a great thing in its own little way!

Sorry for the delay on updates.

 

Day 2, Part 1 – Darien Lake

 

Announcing a brand new TPR trip wristband color….HOT PINK! (The panthers should be happy!)

 

While yes we know that Moto Coaster is the parks big new attraction, Supe….um….Ride of Steel is still the star of the show!

 

Superman? I don’t see Superman anywhere around here…

 

Mmmm….Intamin sexiness!

 

How does an hour of airtime filled Intamin ERT sound to you guys?

 

The Intamin airtime gods have spoken!

 

Ejector airtime all the way into the final brake run.

 

In previous years, Darien Lake’s “Ride of Steel” was the least favorite out of the three, but this year, man it was really hauling ass!

 

There was some serious airtime all over this sucker!

 

Oh, yeah, there was also some ERT on Predator!

 

“Hold on to your boobs because this here is the wildest ride in the wilderness!”

 

Moto Coaster was the sexy new ride for 2008.

 

Fun ride…definitely more for families, however it has a fairly high height restriction which may make it difficult for families to ride together.

 

The best part of the ride though is that TPR’s own Bruno is on the cover of the park map! He’s doing his popular “thumbs up ” pose.

 

HI BRUNO!!!

Ahh, Viper is next…and that’s going to make one person VERY happy…

 

Jahan, you have a choice – Arrow coaster or the girls. You decide!

 

He chose Viper….yup!

 

We found out that Bethany is actually a transformer and on this trip she has taken the form of a cute teddy bear. Weird, huh?

 

“Old and Stupid”

 

Yup, we have some Vekoma rides to do next…

 

I pray to Buddha that the boomerang will not crush my skull!

 

“I GOT VEKOMA SPOOGED!!!”

 

Theme Park Review + Intamin = better than anything on YouPorn!

 

Robb! DO NOT EAT THE VEKOMA SPOOGE!!!

 

“Banger” or “Ranger”….you decide!

 

“Um, excuse me, but is all the padding really necessary?”

 

OMG! It IS the banana boat looping starship from Roller Coaster Tycoon!

 

To continue our tour of “Flat rides that look like other things” we have the “UFO”

 

Please! NO ANEURYSM!!!

 

 

Tyler does his impression of “When I worked at Cedar Point.”

 

Here is Tyler working at Camp Snoopy after being told he was hired for Top Thrill Dragster.

 

Here is Tyler walking off the job 30 seconds later….

 

Don’t even THINK about taking my stuffed animals away!

 

Yup, we still have the Vekoma SLC credit to get….

 

Beer is the perfect cure for an SLC headache.

 

Hmm…I wonder if he’s going to eat that….”

 

BALLS ON FACE!!!

 

“Hi, my name is Jahan and I’m going to be your bag bitch for the day…”

 

OMG! I’m riding with Matt Damon!!!

 

We had an AWESOME day at Darien Lake! It’s so nice to see this park improving after it’s been sold off from Six Flags.

 

“There is nothing to see here….please move along….”

Thanks for another great update! I really enjoyed Darien Lake. I was very impressed with the park. It was really clean and nicely landscaped. Thanks Darien Lake for surprising us with the ride-exit passes and the on-ride photos!

 

Out of the two (superman) Ride Of Steels that I have been on, I can honestly say that Darien Lake's version, compared to Six Flags New England's version, has a better first drop.

Rich, thanks for the humorous Sauce story. I can rest easier now.

 

Sorry for the delay on updates

(Cringe) Man, I feel all bad now....Well hey, you are on vacation after all, but we miss you all, so thank you from the bottom of our vicarious hearts. No more b*$#*ing from the mullet brigade.

 

Jahan's choice and Tyler's impression were great, however, Jahan, while I share the Arrow and frozen coke love, we must talk about your priorities.

 

Happy riding everybody!

 

EDIT: (Raises eyebrow at the last picture.) Uh-oh, here comes the speculation storm....

It's not on the map. I checked

 

Just a very weird space. But I think it's been used fairly frequently, judging from the odd smell of feet that permeates the air, and the arrangement of the carpets in the rooms.

 

I think Robb has some exclusive Multi-Faith Space POV from his trip up here in May.

Hmm. Well, the one at Darien Lake became my #1 -- until I did the New England version, mind you, which replaced it. I refuse to include more than one instance of a coaster in my ranking just now. Coaster Survivor ... It's All About The Sauce!

 

Great update, I'd love a higher-res version of me on RoS. We really do need to sit around the lobby this time, missed that happening on the Behemoth trip. Or maybe setup base camp next to the vending machines

 

Seabreeze and DL were fantastic parks and a pretty gentle introduction to the mini-trip. They looked after us well.
