Day 5 Part 2 - Scandia and John's Incredible Pizza.

 

It's been a while since my last update but I'm trying to finish the West Coast Trip PTR this month.

 

We've only been about 40 minutes in Scandia. Everyone got their credits and well nothing more. Very small park with one big coaster which hurt.

By scrolling through my pictures I guess some of the trip participants enjoyed it.

 

Then John's Not So Incredible Pizza. The food was quite good, the coaster pathetic. I guess we couldn't close the day in a better way.

 

Pictures.....

And of course lurking for prices.

Day 6 - Part 1 Sea World San Diego

 

We started the day at Sea World. Not a coasterpark but still I enjoyed myself seen some of the animals and did some rides.

 

The only thing that I didn't like so much was the Shamu show..... I think it was too "American" to me.

Shamu, Shamu, Shampoo.....

 

Thank you Sea Word for the free Shampoo Poncho's.

 

On to the pics.

You get some good impression from the park.

I think we've seen him before.

IMG_0001_8.jpg.955f12329fc0bf56c3597a7cf2f6c42e.jpg

At the end of the "show" there was an Ice wall. I'm wondering what they are drawing.

IMG_0001_7.jpg.cede9f23ff04dd059a4df9ebb4e08622.jpg

What else.

IMG_0001_12.jpg.9ab461f3a9a2ca389934e05aba60cf2c.jpg

Next stop Journey to Atlantis.

It wasn't so well themed as I hoped it would be.

IMG_0001_18.jpg.993ad7e4e876099c7ebe4bb24ca5f227.jpg

The most pointless Sky ride in the word. You go all the way over the water and then go back without the oppurtunity to go off.

IMG_0001_16.jpg.3f77af9078c7e814b18f93e5bfd6d873.jpg

It gives you nice views though.

Show that I missed out on due to popularity.

This was more interesting to watch.

The best themed rapids ride of the world.

IMG_0001_27.jpg.b32098fd83f61134d24eff779599c71f.jpg

Well it's shipwreck themed.

The typical American "you will get soaked" part of the ride.

But that's not a bad thing

It's fun to watch.

Dry out place at the end of the ride. Next up Belmont Park with Flowrider and Flat Tire.

Oh Hans, Hans Hans Hans.

Yes, what the hell is the deal with that Chairlift at Sea World?

 

But that Rapids Ride was pretty rock-tacular. I mean look at those turbines at the end, pretty awesome if you ask me. Very Wet, but Shamu kept me dry. Did he keep you Dry Hans?

 

Yeah the Shamu kept me dry and he still does.

Day 6 Part 2 - Belmont Park

 

 

After a very long drive from Sea World (approx 10 minutes) we arrived at Belmont Park. I only took a few pictures of the coaster and a bunch of pictures of TPR members on the flowrider.

 

We had an awesome party on the beach deck. Thank you mr. Flat tire and mr. Corona. after that we had half an hour ERT on the Giant Dipper. Awesome ERT session with the glowsticks and being intoxicated with alcohol.

Day 7 Part 1 - Legoland California

 

 

Can't remember much from this part of the day. Except that it was very busy later in the day. I think we almost waited an hour for the kiddie credit.

 

But I can't forget about Renate who worked at the Lego souvenir/shop... She gave all the tpr members a guided tour and some free souvenirs. Thanks for that.

ERT on the Lego technic ride.

It has 5 options. From 1 - mild to 5 - extreme. I think everyone chose for option 5.

There was an maze where you had to search for keys or something. Inside you had some amazing Lego creations.

I still can't believe that I waited so long for this ride.

Smile your'e on camera.

Day 7 - Part 2 Castle Park

 

This was a nice little Californian park. It was also the park where I did my very first ring of fire. Yes I know it's amazing. We had the most crazy kiddie coaster take over, I never knew I could sit next to somebody on such a small kiddie coaster.

 

There was also a decent sized logflume but some of our fellow TPR members broke it down so I couldn't ride it. Kidding it just broke down with no reason. I think that's quite bizarre for the world's most famous logride isn't it?

 

And there was Pizzahut....

I don't know if any TPR member did ride it.

But I think it's already broken down.
