I'm terrified of heights but I didn't feel any fear on the starflyer, must have been the jetlag, in fact I didn't feel any fear on any ride the whole trip. Statosphere Tower of the top of Half Dome at Yosemite - well that was another story.

 

I'm just happy Hanno hasn't photgraphed me scratching my butt or anything else, because you never know when Hanno has you in his sites.

 

Thanks for the all effort Hanno, I do notice that you spend a lot of time taking photos when you could be riding and it's great that you can share your really great photos with us. Especially with number of mind erasers on this trip there might be a few blank spots in the memory bank where your photos can fill in the gaps.

Thanks for all the nice comments so far. Happy to hear that people enjoy the pictures (so far)

 

No worries about me posting pictures of somebody scratching his/her...

I would most likely not see it happening or would not be quick enough with my camera... on the other side i guess it's just way too grosse to post...

 

although it might be very funny.. hmm.. i guess i have to double check my pictures....

 

anyway.. time for some more pictures..

 

Day 3 was spent all day at Canada's Wonderland

(aka Behemoth Bash)

 

Here's a selection of the pics i took.. hope you enjoy them

Haha. That's me in the second row, riding with some random dude....I think it was the only GP I rode with on the entire trip. Anyway, the guy was really funny. He kept saying how "radical" Skyrider was. Then he asked me if I had ridden Beheomoth and he called in "VERY radical." (I guess that is Canadian slang)

 

Great photos. You really sacraficed a lot of ride time for these, so thanks!

Hanno;

It can't be said enough. Thank You for the pictures. silver comet sunset. The close ups you got on the first drop of behemoth are great. As well as the action Canadian goose landing shot. You even got a really good shot of Brad and I on whirlwind, at seabreeze.

Looking forward to the rest.

Forgot to ask this in all the other TR's... did anyone else have as much trouble navigating the pitch-black Dragon Mountain queue as I did a couple of years ago? I must have hit my knees five times and my head twice just to get down to where it was better lit near the platform!

 

For the record, the sign said "1 Milf" at that time as well. I actually joked then that Marineland would fix it by removing the '1' and putting it in the fallen part of the 'E's place. Looks like I was half-right after all.

The second half of day 4 was spent at Waldameer.

 

Home to Ravine Flyer II.

 

This is one of those days/nights i'll never forget. The storm that hit us during ERT and the bus drive after that was amazing.

 

I did not dare to get my camera out of the safety of the bag to get some pictures of the rain.. but it was amazing.

I also wish i would have been able to describe the atmosphere due to the proximity of lightning and the sound of thunder..

 

Once again.. it was amazing and i'm glad i was part of the experience..

 

Here's a selection of the pictures i took during our visit.. hope you enjoy them.

As usual these are posted in the order they were taken...

Wait...did we ever find out whether they are married or brother and sister? I missed that question on the Behemoth Bash TPR Trivia.

 

So did I... it occurred to me about 4 hours after the fact and I think I asked either Dave or Robb for the answer.

^I think they just hook up occaisionally after downing a bottle of absinthe with the group, but under the influence of such a demonic drink you really start a practical lesson in diminished responsibility.

 

I was born to be Idlewild, the place was so cute, with so many nooks and crannies to explore, every turn was a discovery. If people who like to enjoy hallucenagenic drugs ever get sick of the film Fantasia or Pink Floyd records, I'm sure they'll all head for Idlewild, it's another world.

 

Though I'm still a bit unclear about Mister Rogers, okay I know what Hump'n'Song is now but what is his role in it? A host, a pervy old guy who hangs around in the bushes? I'll have to see what wikipedia can reliably inform me about this.

^ until visiting this park i had never heard of Mister Rogers.. so yeah.. i still don't get it.. But it was fun, i'm had an excellent holiday/time.. so.. i don't mind

 

Anyway

 

The second park of Day 5 was

Lakemont Park

 

Not sure what happened.. but i hardly took any pics there.. (i must have been tired or the heat was getting to me..)

Here's the "usual" selection.
