Photo TR: Hanno (and camera) go Behemoth/East Coast with TPR


Recommended Posts

You didn't get any pictures of our takeover of the super slide of death right before we left? I'm surprised!

 

 

 

Those two hours at Quassy were better than our full day at Kings Dominion later on in the trip! That takeover of the mini carousel took sad and pathetic to a whole new level.

Hanno, despite the fact you always manage to catch me looking tragic (I mean, seriously, I look like a horse on the Mouse!), the photos are amazing! Love every update, and can't wait for more!

 

Funnily though it makes me ever so slightly embarrassed of my photo attempts, lol!

Too funny, Hanno! Fantastic photos...except of me! I hope I don't look that terrified through all of the rides, but that particular mouse was a little on the interesting side. I still haven't quite gotten over photos of the water slide at SFNE as well. I never did get completely dry the rest of that day. But if I had to buy a hoodie, I'm glad it was at the surprisingly favorite park Lake Compounce. I'm happy to have that souvenir! (and I was finally cuddly warm again!!)

 

I really enjoyed Quassy, and I'm still jealous of Jahan's penguin! I'm looking forward to the rest of your PTR. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

Where you the one riding Boulder Dash during the ERT while wearing the Boulder Dash hoodie?!

Nope...I did not have a Boulder Dash hoodie...mine is green and just has Lake Compounce on it. After having ridden Boulder Dash, I would not mind having one of those either!

Well.. it ain't over yet (and with that i mean these updates and the second day of tis trip..)

 

We had one more stop before heading back to the hotel..

 

Lake Compounce

 

Home of Boulderdash which ended up being one of those special days and ERT session.

 

I'm going to say something other will not like... but i prefer this ride (based on how it was during the ert sessions) to El Toro... but more on that when it's time for that update.

 

Let's focus on Lake Compounce and the time we spent there.

 

By the way.. you won't see many of my "standard" pictures for this park.. due to the fact that we arrived late... and well.. my camera needs a bit more light for that kind of pictures

Don't worry Hanno, I liked Boulder Dash better than El Toro also.

 

While El Toro was a great ride, the airtime and speed of Boulder Dash that night was amazing and it is easily my #1 wood coaster now.

 

(Don't worry El Toro fanboys, the bull comes in at #2. )

^Yeah, I enjoyed Boulderdash more than El Toro as well.

 

El Toro was awesome and was a blast but Boulderdash was all that and more.

 

It will be interesting to ride it again once they re-profile or brake the turnaround. My opinion might change after that happens...

Once again, awesome photos. I enjoyed Boulder Dash much more than El Toro too! Well maybe not "much more" but it's certainly no contest.

 

That surprise ERT on Kiddie Coaster was awesome. I was one of the first to hear about it from a park employee, so I got on before the line got too bad. Zoomerang wasI think I'm at 7 now) boomerangs I've been on compared to Hershey's which ranks dead last. Too bad you didn't get any pictures of our TPR takeover of the Rotor right after dinner. That was interesting...

 

 

Lastly, the night time experience of the park and Boulder Dash ERT was truly amazing!!

Oh Boulder Dash, how much do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

 

I swear Boulder Dash did NOT get old to me at all during ERT, well actually during the hour or so I spent riding and reriding it before ERT and during ERT. I came back into the station with the same exhilirated (sp?), generally blown away feeling every single time. El Toro, on the other hand, was a little disappointing to me because there were no surprise moments during the ride. Sure, you have the hill that takes you into RT's infield, but I've read so much about that hill that there was no surprise in that moment. I guess it was a case of reading too much about a ride to give it a fair chance.

^I know exactly what you mean. I rode it with Jenn I think before ERT started and then I randomly ran to people I knew and forced them to ride it in the dark before ERT began. I remember smoking with John and then excitedly telling him that we must ride before ERT.

 

I don't think I quit at all during ERT. That was amazing!

Time for another update..

 

Day 3 started with a couple more hours at Six Flags New England en would end with a "surpise park" (more to that in the next update)

 

But first.. here's some more pics of SFNE and S'ROS. More funny/strange faces and expressions of people anjoying their rides at a park.

 

Hope you like them.
