Looks like fun! How was Titan? Super intense as I found it?

 

Yes! It is very intense. My vision almost goes completely black on the first helix.

 

Did you notice the smoothness of Flashback compared to other boomerangs? I was actually quite surprized by that (well it was my first boomerang anyways)

 

I did a lot of boomerangs, and this one seems average. Not bad overall.

Day 2, part 2

19-tvcrash.JPG.7f289eb929f5bdf9e48fcf9413da1dfd.JPG

Upon arriving at the hotel, I tried watching some TV, but it seems the TV has crashed.

18-weather.JPG.47651382ea7785caeb9e3e45777479ba.JPG

...the weather wasn't quite cooperating with us. Thankfully the storm passed, and by 10:15pm we were able to grab a few rides on the Bullet before the park closed for the night.

17-bullet.JPG.c16c331a70bea3d820fb8fabd76e0f99.JPG

We came to ride the little coaster called the Boardwalk Bullet, but...

15-yacht.JPG.7312c724b39c3d551c08f851f56485e3.JPG

Some people come to ride roller coasters in style

Next stop: Kemah Boardwalk

More fun on the bus

Just in case you forgot the name of the place

13-itzfiesta.JPG.5073d2e1679bfa27d4980fd8d9d44d62.JPG

They also have a kiddie coaster

Day 3, part 1: More Kemah

 

--Luko

7-stingrays.JPG.12bc8c02957da896cebb46b6738d7619.JPG

We were also treated to a stingray exhibit where you could get up close and personal with these unusual creatures. After the exhibit we had an amazing buffet lunch and the park has shown us a video of the devastation of Kemah by hurricane Ike and the rebuilding efforts.

And this is the after photo.

5-before.JPG.579b306204eef0a4b6e6a51d96e951ef.JPG

Oh, and the ride is designed to get the unsuspecting passengers as wet as possible. This is the before photo.

Then we went to the Boardwalk Beast - a speedboat ride that lives up to its name.

3-bullet.thumb.JPG.b7f26bd8af9eba3a94ad95bef9fb04af.JPG

First we started with ERT on the Boardwalk Bullet. This coaster reaches amazing speeds, and does hairpin turns. Nice!

The back of the bus crew is ready to ride.

Today we had some special treats planned at Kemah.

Was fun meeting up with everyone out there! I'm glad the weather passed the first night and the wet track made from some decent speeds on the Bullet; it much better than the last time TPR visited. Hope you have a great day in San Antonio and New Braunfels, really wish I could have visited Schlitterbahn with you guys!

Looks like a great trip. I went to SFOT in 2006 during an off time of the season so only half the rides were open. Did get to do titan and judge roy scream. But was really looking forward to get the texas giant credit oh well. Probably will go back next summer.
