Ok... Hearing that Viper is running really bad from everyone really stinks! I mean It was running the best it ever had this opening weekend!

 

Could it just need a good Oiling? I'm just hoping it won't run like this the rest of the year!

A modern park with a Condor and Jumbo Jet...wow. I need to go there.

 

Does the Condor still run fast enough that the cars swing out?

Sort of, but not really anything you would notice if you weren't paying attention.

^

photos from trips were I don't really keep track of my day at the park

 

 

But I'll try my best to remember!

We got on all of the coaster except Superman and V2. As well as re riding a few of the older rides(Eagle, Demon, Whizzer), and a ton of flats!

 

But remember...When we could have been riding coasters the first 2 hours my friends neck was in hell and we rode things like the train and worked out way up trough the day.

 

 

 

Also. I have never used the flash pass before, because I simply haven't had the need to! If you want to be sure you get on all the rides I suggest you get a regular flash ass and ride the rides with a smaller wait. While you are waiting for your time on a larger coaster you reserved to be over.

So June 6th was a huge day for me. I had been anticipating this day for quite some time as I would finally get to go to SFGAm with Cameron as well as meet some other TPR peeps!

 

 

It was bloody crowded that day, but we had our new crush The Q-bot Gold!

This nifty little device never had us waiting longer than 20 minutes the entire day!(You also get to laugh as you pass the people waiting in line)

 

 

That day was full of laughs and I can't say thanks enough to Cameron, Dan, and JoJo for an awesome day!

 

 

 

Photos!

Nice pics, and those eta cups looks really nice.

 

I have must say that the demon's trains look sexy, not Intamin sexy, but a girl in glasses hot (which I like alot). Second, what is it with the over sized handlebars on Bemon? Viper at SFMM has them too.

 

Shame about Viper though, I've been reading nothing but positive reviews about it--until now.

It was an awesome day. I had a great time with you guys and cant wait to see you all again!

 

Hopefully I didn't corrupt you too much. Am I that dangerous though?

 

It was really hard to focus at work today after having so much fun yesterday. Thanks again!

In keeping with Iron Wolf jokes... L-Mayo!

 

Had no idea you got a full-swing shot of Revolution; I totally forgot to set my long-shutter beyond 2 seconds. Great tilts on some of the pics, too!

^ Oh.. I so hope that happens next year (Ya hear that Robb!).

 

 

Night time ERT on Whizzer with the lights turned off... DROOL! Well that might be getting a bit carried away, but a guy can dream can't he?

I'm interested in a TPR midwest bash. Maybe those of us that live in the area should have our own meet up. It seems like a majority of us already have a pass anyway. Besides, I'm always game for shenanigans.

^NOTHING CAN REPLACE ELISSA BINGO!!!

 

On a slightly related topic, the 2009 Elissa Bingo Instructional Video is DONE. Hopefully it will amuse. We'll see in a few days on the Deep South trip!

 

And on topic, I look forward to visiting SFGAm again some day. I really liked that park.
