The DAMIN8R goes motoring!


Recommended Posts

So when I got my new car last month I decided that it would be the star of my PTR's. The license plate is DAMIN8R and they don't say mini's drive they say they motor thus the title of the topic

 

So I have been to KI and CP with my Mini but I haven't taken photos of either. I was too angry when I left KI but that is another story and I live so close to CP that I will get around to doing it eventually lol

 

SO to start out I captured the fun I had at Waldameer! This park reminded me a lot of Knoebels except it was closer to civilization. The atmoshpere was great and very family oriented. A group of older folks (28-35 ish) actually got thrown out because they kept shouting "You're gay, and You're a Homo" off the mega vortex to their friends. I was glad to see they took the family atmosphere rules seriously!

 

As far as rides they were all great! The only problem I had with this park was the operators. Except for the Ravine Flyer crew the operators couldn't seem to care less about life. I understand it is a mundane job but it is also your job to lie and be friendly to your customers! It was more of a "Get on, buckle in.....Welcome back, unbuckle get off" attitude.

 

Now about RFII.......WOW this coaster is beastly. Very smooth and very fast. I have also never seen a ride that had such a drastic personality change after dark. It was absolutely insane at night.

 

All in all it was a fun day. Here are some photos! Broken up into two posts the second post will be the rapid fire series of RFII.

And in the end the DAMIN8R gets his first TPR Photo Trip report credit and his third park credit!

THIS IS THE FREAKING COOLEST TUNNEL EVER. Seriously this log flume is my favorite of the generic log flumes because of this tunnel.

53.thumb.JPG.09d782d45d8a2109de06c466e3b4082a.JPG

This, for being short, is a lot of fun! The best part is all the people think, since they know it goes right when it gets to the top, they will know get on and look up only to see they can't see the top with the wing that sticks out! LMAO

52.thumb.JPG.47655bd72e32de2f5e690bba5b63bf80.JPG

We spun a lot too because I was always a single rider lol

OK so I went up to CP today to finally take some pictures and here they are. Seeing as CP is a highly photographed park, these are what I got from Telephoto and rapid fire only!

 

Two posts coming first is the TP lens and beginning of RF and then the second post is the rest of the RF.

 

Enjoy!
