After the tour, they give you a bumper sticker. Some people prefer to place theirs on some other poor bastards car in the parking lot.

Our unique room is on the right. It is called LUCKY ROCK. We had a chance to see the neighbor's room where the bathroom plumbing was configured to look like an old-time moonshine still. AWESOME!

The pool area. Heated pool and two Jacuzzis. There was also a gazebo and waterfall (not pictured) as well as the fitness room and Day Spa in this area. We would later go in the pool and hot tub after dark.

But first.... Dinner in The Steakhouse!!!!

Wonderfully gaudy! The food was good, but probably not worth the high cost. But, of course, we paid for ambiance.

After dinner we sat in the smoking room and had cigars and brandy (not really), then we hit the hot tub before going to bed.

Mr Bebe ordered a corned beef rueben with potato salad and an add-on of Split Pea Soup and an extra-thick chocolate milkshake (YUMMMMMM!!!) and Lady Bebe got the Half Tuna Sandwich and Cup of Split Pea Soup. There is an option for extras for your pea soup for $2.50 which includes things like cheese, bacon, croutons, ham and scallions. I would suggest any newbie to Pea Soup Andersen's should get the extras!!!! We took our leftovers and headed home....

Oh yeah, that's right!!! I *HATE* trains but love animal butts. Thanks so much for reminding me!

 

This new epic trip report you're working on better be pretty freaking epic to make up for all the animal butts I just had to endure. It better be Jurassic Park themed!

Y'all are the reason why The Bebes post these reports!!!!! Thanks a ton for reading, following, and enjoying our twisted trip reports!!!! Sorry you had to put up with so many animal butts. They were for ILoveRides David because he LOVES animal parts!!!!!

Coasting for Kids Marathon event at Knott's Theme Park

Benefit for Give Kids the World Village

 

 

The charity event at Knott's to benefit Give Kids the World Village was a wonderful experience. We (everybody involved) were able to raise a lot of money to help bring some happiness to terminally ill children.

 

Kara, representing the Village, was enthusiastic and grateful. Jennifer and the rest of the Knott's staff were exceptional and put on a great event. There were some nice surprises like fresh baked cookies for lunch, and they were available until the end of the event. And Jennifer even personally brought bottled waters to the loading station. We were able to keep our personal belongings in the ride op station. Class Acts!!!

 

DISCLAIMER:

The following Photo Trip Report, Round n Round, is a work of fiction based on the premise of riding the same coaster over and over and over. In no way should any portion of the report be viewed as a negative connotation regarding the Coasting for Kids event, Give Kids the World Village, Knott's Theme Park, or Theme Park Review. Enjoy!!!!

Always a pleasure reading these!! Top of the line production as always!

 

 

Full of wins with LOTS of Big Mike shout outs, the vision of Lady Bebe making love, and David picking a great song in Mr. Brightside to sing..... as well as seeing a whole bunch of cool people that I know at the event, and seeing Spears is always an absolute delight!

 

 

Best of all though, Mr. Bebe's genious wit and ability to put together these masterpieces!!!

 

 

With the slight excepton that you could not find a way to insert that magnificent Lady Bebe bikini photo she posted on Facebook the other day somehow into the story, this was almost perfect

 

 

Thanks for the great laughs, but most of all, thanks for the great friendship! Hope to see that whole wonderful gang again very soon!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Is there a story explaining why David and Spears call their place "the Robot Warehouse"?

 

Another great TR, BTW. I love Danielle's increasingly frustrated expressions and how David has the same goofy one with or without SuperShawn.

 

I've really got to hand it to you guys for doing the Coasting for Kids thing. On Jaguar. Jaguar, the perfect blend of pointlessness and uncomfortable seating. I would have shot myself in the head 15 minutes into the first day.

OMG Mr. Bebes, that was effin fantastic! But one question.... you only made love once?.....lol

 

Well, only once that was mentioned in the trip report!!!

 

Thanks for the great laughs, but most of all, thanks for the great friendship! Hope to see that whole wonderful gang again very soon!

 

Awwww shucks, Big Mike!!!!! You're the awesomest!!!!

Perhaps David will explain The Robot Warehouse, perhaps not. I'm just sorta upset that no robots made it into the trip report!!!!

 

And, Tim, you couldn't sum up Jaguar any better. My butt was killing after about 4 rides. Luckily, if you sat alone, there was enough room to find a more comfortable position.

 

We should do it again next year!!!

 

MAYBE.

 

Wow, reading this trip report was a great way to start the day...and really broke me out of my funk.

 

These trip reports take SOOO long to put together I ask myself "WHY DO I DO IT?" Escpecially this one, with it's repetitive nature (99 photos trimmed down from 115 in the original draft; I usually cap a report at 50 photos). But, comments like darklingscribe's make it all sooooo worthwhile!!!!! Glad we could help bring smiles!!!!

That was hilarious Bebes! Seriously well done! I was laughing through the whole report. So many random memories and inside jokes in there too! I loved it!

 

Oh, and I never should've posted those makeup pictures!!!

 

If it clears up some confusion - The Bebes wanted to make this a Groundhog Day themed trip report, which made sense, considering the repetitive nature of the Coasting For Kids event. But I said it was too predictable and that it had to be Jurassic Park themed and have dinosaurs. The rest is history! (But I still want more dinosaurs!)

 

You have left me with a lot of questions though Bebes... Who vacuums the sidewalk? What is this Theme Park Retreat I hear about? And what happened to my dinosaur hat pic sequence from Universal? I feel like there could be an entire part 2 of this TR that gives us these valuable bits of information.

 

Anyhow, amazing TR (as always), it was great hanging out with you guys (as always), and we can't wait til we see you guys again (as always)!!!

Tim - there is a story, but it's sort of boring and long and convoluted, so I'm not going to post it. But feel free to ask me in person!

 

Bebe - next time, robots!

 

We should do it again next year!!!

 

MAYBE.

 

I agree with Bebe! The event was a blast, and it raised a ton of money for an awesome cause, but I must say... I hurt for days and had bruises that lasted for weeks. We'll see!

 

These trip reports take SOOO long to put together I ask myself "WHY DO I DO IT?"

 

You do it because you're Commander Bebe. Captain Bebe Mc. Bebington! It's your sworn duty. And you will continue to do it or else you will be demoted from Bebe to Beh.

Who DOESN'T vacuum the sidewalk???

 

What is this Theme Park Retreat I hear about?

Lies, David!!!! All lies!!!!

 

And what happened to my dinosaur hat pic sequence from Universal? I feel like there could be an entire part 2 of this TR that gives us these valuable bits of information.

It is a sequel inspiring, cliffhanger ending......

 

Oh, and I never should've posted those makeup pictures!!!

Oh, BTW, Mind if I use those ultra embarrassing makeup pictures in my report??? xoxo
