Jizz Man's 2009 TPR Texas Trip!


Recommended Posts

Hey TPR!

 

So, here's my Texas Trip photo trip report. I had soooo much fun! I can't thank Robb and Elissa enough for getting this whole trip together. I am going to be on another trip for sure next year!

 

DAY:0

 

I got in early Thursday night so I could head over to the park early the next day. I got in late, and headed over to Denny's to meet up with friends Andrew and Erik; and to meet new friends! Like Gary, Wes, and...I forget who else was there at Denny's....it feels like a year ago!

 

Anyways, I headed back to the hotel to meet my room mate for the trip; Luko! Luko is such a great guy. I couldn't have asked for a better room mate!

 

DAY:1

We woke up around 9AM and got breakfast, heading over to SFOT at 9:30am. I'll let the pics do the talking.

So, the first time around I went for the back to see how bad it really is...and wow, it was bad. Godawful. I got beaten up. Then I rode in the front and it was pretty fun, I liked it. But holy hell....never again in the back. Ouch. Please refurb this ride!

 

More to come soon!

It's very nice looking, very pretty...

Station. It was a fun little dark ride. I liked it.

rsz_dsc_3778.jpg.17090ad5e91bc8766bc53d78933e8974.jpg

Upscale Six Flags dark ride? Awesome!

rsz_dsc_3776.jpg.bb9ecf5ecd8c226cdf24c1cd807de517.jpg

Another AWESOME old school Premier! I had no idea it existed. It scared the crap out of me! I LOVED IT. 9/10! Also had GREAT landscaping.

rsz_dsc_3771.jpg.25ced7e19ed805cb2ccb5ef462b3029f.jpg

Mythbusters! Maybe they're here to check out Boardwalk Bullet too ;)

rsz_dsc_3770.jpg.aa2d7149aca8bc9b50bed5bcdcc301ec.jpg

It's Gary and Luko!

Where's your tail?

rsz_dsc_3757.jpg.d9b8c1292c0c022543c10e02bd880419.jpg

I have a trident, so give me some Orbit Gum!

rsz_dsc_3753.thumb.jpg.a273a8b7c45ba36dd2a1515cc83eb6e0.jpg

SFoT was VERY aware of the heat. There were misters all over the park. Good job!!

rsz_dsc_3748.jpg.2ab3fe5986b6699ca4ef2175376394fe.jpg

I wish premier made even bigger versions of this ride. That'd be amazing. Seriously. AWESOME ride. 10/10

rsz_dsc_3742.jpg.8c68444f16880db9e933f019da14d04d.jpg

Mr. Freeze was VERY impressive. A HUGE surprise. LOVEDDDD it. So good.

Tony Hawk is fun...if you get the perfect balance to spin!

Titan. This ride was awesome!

rsz_dsc_3730.jpg.2551cf51d187840f310b23ea28349236.jpg

Mmm....zero g.

Judge Judy: The Ride

rsz_dsc_3726.jpg.50aedbe7e65f3b9b77787d9a31e2cc03.jpg

Gary and Andrew are ready to ride!

rsz_dsc_3725.jpg.dc0060ba586242cfa3b23805cbb6bda8.jpg

Insert you own gay joke! We were waiting in line for Chute Out; which was only running two parachutes, with one operator. These two hooligans were pushing each other in the swing over on the side. WTF?

rsz_dsc_3723.jpg.0edae0e2a329aa715cae3443f1ccdeea.jpg

A fun little ride. I'm glad it was open! Too short, though.

rsz_dsc_3722.jpg.9e7c010c6a09d4876257527891ad19bd.jpg

BEN! Haha, this dude is hilarious.

rsz_dsc_3721.jpg.1208344201ce727e5feb608a23f99b94.jpg

Paul and Joey? Getting ready for the Chute out.

One of the 3 Batmans on the trip. All completely different! This one got second place.

First stop, Gotham City!

rsz_dsc_3700.jpg.d3463a0171ac218c11bf96c980b12b9b.jpg

Ah, the first park of the trip...Six Flags over Texas!

rsz_dsc_3687.jpg.c03a7bcce64e322354af735334b773d4.jpg

SFoT was RIGHT across the street! 10 Minutes to walk back and forth.

rsz_dsc_3686.jpg.3cf030d7c43a69c47be9cbcdb380bf2f.jpg

The Texas Rangers and the Dallas Cowboys are right next door!

Dude your pics are amazing. It was awesome hanging out with you in SA.

 

Can't wait to see more!

 

Thanks Texas! It was fun hanging out at Whataburger and the parks. Hope to see you on some other trips!

 

This PTR is going to be an ongoing update. Be sure to check out Luko Simlesa's photo tr for all the stuff I didn't take pics of. He did an awesome job covering things!

Shock Wave update!!!!

 

This coaster was fantastic. I loved the hell outa it.

 

Mindbender?

 

or

 

Shock Wave?

 

I pick Shock Wave. Though it didn't have as pretty as a setting as Mindbender did, or a unique layout....this ride delivered. The airtime was all over the place on INSANE levels. The loops were very strong and forceful. I'll have to get a few more rides on Mindbender for good measure, but for now...

 

Shock Wave reigns supreme! One of my favorite coasters.

-Zach

And I leave you with my current backround and favorite shot of Shockwave. Enjoy! More to come later!

Shock Wave: As good as bacon.

UGHHH I FEEL LIKE PUDDING

Only lap bars?!

rsz_dsc_3795.jpg.5d5154aec93057ba223df66403f91d5c.jpg

Anyone catch the transfer track? It starts at rusty metal; then white; blue; and finally....green. That's the paint scheme life cycle of Shock Wave!

rsz_dsc_3792.jpg.6961ca01e044a232c71924adb9000198.jpg

Lovely old school trains.

rsz_dsc_3790.jpg.e162d4d2f9a31c75951dc23bac3a4cd1.jpg

Like being thrown off a wonderful airtime cliff.

Showing age and beauty.

360* loops! The first consecutive looping coaster!

Wow dude, awesome photos! It seems like we were at SFOT so long ago! I'm getting my credit on the other Mr. Freeze tomorrow and hopefully it will live up to how great the Texas version was.

 

Great job, I can't wait for more updates!

Its about time you posted your PTR, Zach. I've been waiting ever since you left to see what was going on, but I never saw any updates from the trip at all! I guess there was no wireless in Texas or something....

 

Anyways, Shockwave looks epic! The only real Schwart's I've been on are Whizzer and SDL, so I haven't expierienced any of his GOOD stuff yet. Can't wait for your SFFT update. Still wondering what you thought about Rattler.

Shock Wave: As good as bacon.

 

I haven't ridden Shock Wave, so I don't know how crazy it is. However, I have to disagree with you there. I don't think anything can match bacon. Except more bacon. Looking forward to the rest. So far so good.

You've got a great trip report going.

 

Even though it's almost four hours away, I have to call SFOT my home park. I'm glad to have a coaster like Titan that close to me; it's just such an awesome ride. I'm glad you like Shock Wave. It too is such a great rollercoaster.

 

Great TR and awesome photos!
