Someone should have asked them if they know about Gatlinburg. Any respectable ninja worth his/her weight in throwing stars knows that's where the deals are.

 

I thought ninjas at first, but then remembered "Multi-Faith ERT" and figured Muslim or similar.

 

A skunk eh? And we all thought Hypersonic was the only stinker at KD.

^^Well done, Luko. I've heard stories about skunk encounters at KD before; apparently, there used to be a family of polecats living under Grizzly.

That skunk totally freaked me out when I seen it come out of the bushes! I've got it on video but I don't have the software with me to upload it . Too bad the skunk doesn't explain the smell in Volcano

East Coast - Day 5

 

Today we spent (most of) the day at Six Flags America in Maryland.

It was voted once again to leave early and get extra sleep for the day at Busch Gardens.

Since we left the park early, we had extra time for a Walmart ERT.

An amusement park is not supposed to have guests see these kind of "ruins".

Most of us took a ride on the Blizzard River water ride before heading for lunch.

Today we bring you random photos from Behemoth Bash. These pictures are in no particular order, and were taken by Robb, Hanno, Dan, Natalie, and lots of other random people who totally kick ass.

We had Q&A with some of the park head honchos. They told us cool stuff and we were all jealous of their awesomesness.

For the real sad and pathetic coaster geeks, the photo walkback was better than "normal" sex.

The bizarre seating configuartion actually worked really well! Only thing was there seemed to be a lot of empty seats on each train. This rides needs a single rider line badly!

The only B&M Hyper I have yet to ride is Silver Star. Behemoth is my favorite B&M Hyper, I was really impressed with it.

 

Edit: Oops, I forgot about the Canadian Goliath and the mini one in Japan.

Nice memories of Canada's Wonderland. Despite the overall questionable nature of Wonderland's coaster line up, it really is an excellent park. Great atmosphere, well-kept. Probably the nicest Cedar Far park I've been to. Throw in an Intamin coaster or two and you'd have something quite special. It could happen. Their maintenance director told us he's "not scared of Intamin".

Why am I the answer to a trivia question? Again?

 

Heck, I'm not even there!!

 

 

 

JJ

 

I think he wrote down the wrong answer to that question. I see my name written off to the left hand side. I believe it was the Jiggidy question.

Behemoth Bash RAWKED!! Behemoth was my 400th coaster back in May - but that day, I only got a few rides on it, since the park was so crowded. At Behemoth Bash, I got to ride it 18 times - damn I love ERT! (Nighttime ERT on Vortex was pretty sweet too.) Behemoth is such a great ride, possibly my favorite B&M hyper - and I so LOVE B&M hypers! I think I like it even better than Nitro. (Now I can start counting down the months until Diamondback opens at Kings Island...) The world can never have enough hypercoasters!

 

Robb, I have to disagree with your assessment of Behemoth as an "emo" coaster. Yeah, I know the three letters appear in the coaster's moniker - but emo? Maybe I'm off target here, but I think of "emo" as being overly-sensative, a bit whiny, mopey, introspective, ultra-PC, a bit lazy - basically, the exact polar OPPOSITE of everything that Behemoth is! Hey, they don't call it a HYPERcoaster for nothing... (Then again, what do I know about emo...)

 

Thanks Robb, Elissa and TPR for another awesome event!

Actually Jeff, I wrote you down twice, both times as WRONG answers - my trivia sheet had a LOT of wrong answers! (Hence the dire need for the magical octopus with the 100 bonus points.) As Erik pointed out, I confused you and him on the Jiggidy question. Then I listed you as one of Robb's former roommates - I had a right answer to begin with (Dave Thomas), then I crossed out his name and put yours instead.

 

Wow, I sure know my fellow TPR members well!

THanks to B&Ms high capacity there were more seats available on the ride than people on the trip given there were other rides open at the time. Which meant I could stay on the train non stop!! Shuffling once in a while of course. It made me very very happy, all manner of theoretical fluids were flowing.

 

And heres another nerdy moment for you: Walk back = missionary position; Seat# 2.3.4 = doggie. mmmmmmm.

Great update.

 

We loved Behemoth too when we rode it end of May. How are the trims nowadays ? When we rode it, all trims were of and we understood that there was somebody from B&M coming the week after to arrange the trims.

 

About the empty seats, we saw that too in in CW but we also saw that in the US parks we visited. I in fact can only remember that the ops of TTD bothered looking for single rides when there was an empty seat, but that was probably because of the trainweight which was needed to make the tophat at the right speed. Don't recall the KK ops doing the same though. Anyway, on all other coasters we did during our trip, the ops didn't really care that the train left 10 to 20 % empty.

Now I really wish I had went up with the rest of the walkback group and hadn't taken all my pictures from the non-lake side of Behemoth.

 

Awesome times, Robb. Thanks again for what was unequivocally the best day I've ever had at a park!
