Hey Benny, I'm here to admit something. I actually thought that Palace Playland and Funtown Splashtown were one in the same park as well. Shhh... don't tell anyone! Haha

 

Anyway, these were a great couple of updates. I loved Old Orchard Beach, and Funtown Splashtown was a blast, minus the bazillion mosquito's that were attacking everybody!

Thanks Jen & Brian

 

Next Park : Canobie Lake park. I've heard of the park, but didn't know what to expect. But it was a nice surprise. Another lovely park.

I wasn't feeling too good that day and not really in the mood for talking a lot so I explored the park on my own.

There was a lake but I don't know the name of the lake ... ;-)

I thought the ride would take me over the lake .... but it wasn't.

I really had a bad day, not because of the park, but it was just me, too much going on in my head :-( I even didn't notice the RCT food stands in the park when I was there. I only saw this on pics of other TR's.

But that's what I like about TPR trips. If you want some 'alone time', that's no problem to have that time on your own.

I went to have a drink in the Italian restaurant near the lake, because they had airco. And when I came out, I notice the MJ show was just starting so I went inside.

1547014530_P1030632Resized.jpg.48d3ea170a28a40dd3c1dbcfa3c8702c.jpg

Not a big fan of MJ, but the show was actually pretty good.

I'm sure he wasn't singing live, because if he did, that would have been the best impersonator ever. But still, the show was really good, even if he didn't really sing.

Last pic. Next up will be the legendary Montreal power outage international alcohol exchange :-) :-) And I was feeling better by the time we arrived at the hotel and I have lots of pictures ;-)

The same evening, when we arrived at the hotel, it turned out that there was a power outage at the hotel. This turned out to be the best thing ever since the amazing alcohol exchange was planned that evening. No power, no hot water, no internet, so immediately after getting rid of our luggage in the room, everybody came outside and we drank alcohol.

So curious what I was drinking in that pic...

 

That was a really fun night but I was so so glad we actually did have hot water because that shower made a huge difference to how I felt in the morning. Thankfully I didn't feel nearly as bad as many people did that morning.

Yeah, the alcohol exchange was a blast..

 

 

If I remember correctly, didn't the buses go too far past the hotels because they were pitch black? I remember there was a U-turn involved. I was also thinking that, because it was Canada and things are strange up there, maybe they don't leave lights on at night. Wasn't it Michael Moore who said they don't even lock their doors?

 

But yeah, the alcohol exchange... lots of booze, crazy conversations with random canooks off the street, a room lit up by the glow of a cell phone, and a shower that progressively got colder.. It was seriously awesome and was slightly more enjoyable than La Roooonde.

I don't even drink and I had a blast at the alcohol exchange! It was just nice to be able to bullsh!t and hang out with everyone at the same time.

 

Not gonna lie, I was pretty bummed when we pulled up to the hotel and it didn't have power, but it was damn fun and ended up being one of, if not my favorite night of the trip. Good times! You've documented it well, Benny!

Great pictures of the Alcohol Exchange, that night ended up being a great night! The one Werner brought was amazing and wish I could get it here. I also worked my way though the hallways with a glow stick only to have Peirs use it for a Gaga performance twice...lol...

La Ronde, it's in fact a lovely park, with great background settings so close to Montreal city. But the park operations, WTF was that ? The operators were really terrible. It's so weird to visit several SF parks and see such different operations.

A Six Flags park, but what a nice park. It doesn't have real top coasters, but the landscaping is so lovely, people are friendly, i really liked this park.

Awww....Roxy was telling Steve and I about this on the way to SFGAdv. Wasn't it his birthday or something?

 

It was quite an experience. I had never done that before, give a kid money to ride a kiddie with us. So Roxanne & me were standing there, not allowed to ride on our own. Roxanne had the idea to give a kid a dollar or 2 to ride with us. Since english is not my first language, and because it was here idea , I let Roxanne do the talking. The kid on the picture was waiting in line and Roxanne asked him. He replied 'I have to ask my mom'. He ran back to his mom and started telling that 2 adults offered him 2 dollars to ride with them .... Well, from the look on the face of the mom, I assume that must have been what het told here. She seemed VERY confused and obviously didn't trust the thing at all. But Roxy, with all her charm, started talking to the mom and explained what we do, etc. But before she could explain everything, the dad was there all of a sudden, and he didn't trust it AT ALL and was looking quite angry to us. But Roxy managed to explain it very well and the parents were ok with our proposal. The older brother of the little guy, didn't dare to ride the kiddie on his own, and he even now had the chance to ride the kiddie with 2 experienced roller coaster riders So we were there waiting to ride with the 2 brothers. However, the older brother was to tall to ride with an adult unfortunately, so as he didn't dare to ride on his own, we were going to ride with the youngest kid. We gave the 2 kids 2 bucks each, and rode the kiddie coaster together with the little kid.

In the meanwhile we had already build up a deep friendship with the parents and kids and when it was time to say goodbye, the oldest kid told us : 'thank you so much, although I didn't get to ride, I really thank you'.

Ok, we are 2 adults, we can cope with that.

But then the little kid said thank you too and how much he enjoyed it, and thank you for the money and blablabla. The 2 kids AND parents were really smiling big time and then the mother said about the little kid : 'And it's his birthday today !!!!!!

We turned around, looked at each other, and there we were, 2 roller coaster geeks with tears in our eyes. Roxy said to me : damn, this was f*cking emotional !!! But it really was.

I hope the above is understandable and not to weird. I'm sure Roxanne would be able to explain the situation much better, but I did my best.

Great story, Benny! I'm not surprised you two were able to pull it off.

 

I've never felt more awkward credit whoring than when I was gearing up to ride Jr. Gemini, probably because the wait was so long. Thankfully, the chosen lady couldn't have communicated better with her child, and she conversed a little with me as well. I'm actually more uncomfortable with the idea of paying (non-TPR) kids than not; to each their own.

Last park of the NE trip and what a beauty it was : Magic Forest !! I really like those small parks and especially this one. Full of muffler men, something of which I had never heard before. Well I've seen those giant puppets before, but I didn't know they were called muffler men.

Time for the add on day to the NE trip : Six Flags Great Adventure.

 

But first I have for you 4 other TR's Trent & Josh (thanks again guys !) had a rental car available and we planned to leave SFGAdv during lunch for some credit whoring at Jersey shore.

We hit 4 parks in not even 5 hours time. I took lots of pics, but since it was a real credit-RUN, most pics are snapshots, I'm sorry for that.

 

First, we hit Jenkinson's Boardwalk.

I actually don't remember whether the coaster was any good, but it must have been quite slow as I obviously had time to zoom in on some attraction while being on the coaster.
