Your favorite TPR moment (favorite post, trip report, video, whatever!)

I'm having trouble choosing between the nights at Ling Bao, black bike week, and vomiting in Mexico

 

Ooh and TWO Splash Mountain memories... starting "the wave" when we were stuck with some TPR members, and the time-honoured tradition of cramming 12 fatasses in a boat

- Favorite new coaster: Medusa @ SFDK...when I first saw a poster advertising this ride, I was so ready to head up to Vallejo just to ride it.

 

- Favorite new ride: Drop Tower, CGA. I rode it before in 1999 before that accident, and feared riding it again until 2007 (Long gap in not visiting GA), the same season someone had their feet severed on another drop tower.

 

And also Wipeout at Santa Cruz...indoor flat rides with intense light shows and techno music are a must for any park.

 

- Favorite new park: Haven't traveled anywhere, maybe SFMM when I went in 2001.

 

- Most memorable park moment: Probably either Haunt seasons at Great America.

 

- Most memorable coaster moment: Downpour at Discovery Kingdom (Marine World), and having a Roar marathon in heavy rains.

 

- Best ERT session: Made my own ERT at the end of the day (so technically isn't ERT) riging Flight Deck probably a good 5 or 6 times.

 

- Least favorite coaster: Superman: The Escape

 

- Least favorite ride: Not sure

 

- Least favorite park: Not sure either.

 

- Most interesting ride you've seen introduced: Probably V2 at Discovery Kingdom, both iterations of it.

 

- Least interesting ride you've seen intoduced: Not quite sure

 

- Your favorite TPR moment (favorite post, trip report, video, whatever!): Does the forum opening day count? I found out about TPR's forums on my birthday (day after forums opened) so that was a nice little surprise for me.

 

- The decade's biggest flop: Losing a completely unique coaster that I had never gotten a chance to ride - Stealth...and let's not forget Zonga which was a great ride with a short life in the bay area.

 

- The decade's biggest success: Adding a water park at GA was a nice feature especially for those hot summer days in the valley.

 

- The best meal you've had at a park: I usually eat off site so I couldn't really tell. Maybe the giant corn dogs at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk.

 

- The worst meal you've had at a park: Again, I usually eat off site so can't really tell.

 

- Best park turnaround: CGA after Cedar Fair take-over and adding the Haunt events.

 

- Worst park turnaround: CGA in the late Paramount days, as rides (originals/classics) were being ripped out without replacement, loss of the whole 'American atmosphere,' increase in prices (though WOW cards were a great deal) and lack of any real special events (Halloween).

- Most memorable park moment

I really don't think I could single out one...there were so many!

- Best ERT session

I really haven't experienced much ERT, but the Raptor ERT at Coastermania 2009 was pretty cool

 

- Least favorite coaster

- Least favorite park

Kings Dominion

 

- Most interesting ride you've seen introduced

- Least interesting ride you've seen intoduced

- Your favorite TPR moment (favorite post, trip report, video, whatever!)

Some of the 2007 Midwest Trip reports were pretty memorable

 

- The decade's biggest flop

Hard Rock Park was probably the biggest failure because of its size and its expectations. Wild West World deserves an honorable mention.

 

- The decade's biggest success

- The best meal you've had at a park

- The worst meal you've had at a park

Midway Market at CP.

 

- Best park turnaround

Probably Six Flags Magic Mountain

 

- Worst park turnaround

Geauga Lake takes the cake.

 

- What was the biggest trend of this past decade?

I think the decade really had two main trends....the coaster wars in the early years and the trend of smaller but more creative coasters in the later years.
