Photo TR: Coaster Palooza Tour


Recommended Posts

I know it has been a while since I posted our Trip Reports. For those of you that know our trips, I hope you like it. Those that haven’t seen these before, I hope you enjoy them too. I will try to update the thread with our trips from last year as well. It depends on how much time I have. I will get this started with West Coast Bash.

We didn’t take too many photos at West Coast Bash, but it was a blast! We had a very good time. I know most of you have seen other trip reports, so I won’t go into too much detail. The photos are below.

The next stop for the 2010 tour was Bay Area Bash. We met up with the bus when it stopped at Santa Cruz on Friday night. I will post the SFDK on another post. I have a few more pictures at that park than I have at SCBB.

 

We had a great night riding Giant Dipper and meeting up with some friends.

IMG_0001.JPG.bebf744808dc379d9673c32689fa6731.JPG

I'm here! I will patiently wait for the bus...and my wife.

IMG_0002.JPG.13196b719b35f8360e2eb4491b580750.JPG

I don't know how many people look at this, but these are boards from the original boardwalk.

IMG_0003.JPG.d668cee384003cfa264c0236f16365a8.JPG

I know it is open now. I wish we could have gone on opening day.

IMG_0004.JPG.7e67a98eb1761aac6b77cd66fd172ffd.JPG

We're here to ride you for a couple of hours.

IMG_0007.JPG.cd3361281f29721a760ce602f416e34b.JPG

As I continue to wait, I thought I would show a little bit of the place.

IMG_0008.JPG.e11b0081443d5ce1b6d0ebcaf91b200a.JPG

This stage will be rockin' on Friday nights!

IMG_0009.JPG.46c5acaa095f906a72f7897b6007c18b.JPG

WOW! What are they setting up for? It must be someone important...

IMG_0010.JPG.dc0878f34067a3147b30be468eec462a.JPG

The bus showed up, now for some ground rules.

IMG_0011.JPG.b6e3fb0c94240ea7f88a6e63144d5b27.JPG

Everyone pays attention to Robb.

It wouldn't be a report from SCBB without a volleyball photo.

This must be where we need to go for food...and BEER!

IMG_5159.JPG.21d4965de8bde41cf4715d21270abc75.JPG

Yep, it is where we get beer. Hi Kevin, I will post SFDK soon.

Alright, time to get the Midwest Trip posted.

We started our Midwest Trip at Cedar Point. Our trip will take us from Cedar Point to Six Flags Great America, Hard Rock Café Indianapolis, Indy 500 (only photos), Kings Island, and finally Holiwood Nights at Holiday World.

It was our third trip to Cedar Point. I am glad we have been there before because Top Thrill wasn’t running that great. It was a real disappointment. We didn’t get on it at all! Maverick bashed us around, but Millennium Force was running awesome! The shows were great too. Those kids work their butts off.

I won’t bore you anymore with the typing. I will start with Cedar Point.

This was a big worry, I'm glad I fit.

This is Sunday, day 2. The crowd waiting for ERT rope to drop.

It wouldn't matter because Maverick AND Millennium Force were down!

We waited out Maverick's line. Finally got on it around 10:15.

WOOHOO! Millennium Force!

After the wait for Maverick and MF, we rode Magnum and then headed to the hotel. When we got back, we decided to see a couple of shows.

On our way to the next show, we stopped off at Shoot the Rapids to see what was up.

Yep, if you're by MF, you gotta take some photos.

Meanwhile, back at MF the wait just gets worse.

My head isn't that big...is it?

IMG_5411.JPG.dc395bdc60abc075da3247f66994590a.JPG

On Day 3 of our trip (5/31), the ERT for MF kicked butt!

IMG_5412.JPG.a8e042dd00d4fa7be9083c002702fe75.JPG

ERT on Top Thrill Dragster sucked though. It wasn't running and had rollbacks for over an hour!

IMG_5414.JPG.716a27892843cafff70234e99e9ff41c.JPG

Hands down! Hands down! Hands down! They must have played that around 8-10 times.

We had family get on-line and save this. That's us in the box.

^The Coaster Palooza Hotel is always open! The beer is always cold...

 

We headed to Six Flags Great America after Cedar Point. There was an incredible storm that we drove through on Memorial Day. I’m glad we weren’t at a park.

We went to SFGam a couple of years ago, but we didn’t have enough time to fully enjoy the park. We set aside a day and a half this time. It was great!

We started out at Dark Knight, they opened before the park opened, then went to Ragin’ Cajun, V2, Whizzer (finally rode it) and continued with the rest of the coasters. It was a great trip to the park and we decided to not go for the next day since we finished everything.

The next day, we headed to Mason, OH (Kings Island) by way of Indianapolis. We stopped at Hard Rock Café (we usually do) and Indy 500.

Once we arrived in Mason there was a HUGE thunderstorm. Oh well, another travel day and no park issues.

IMG_5415.JPG.e231700c6456908770cc254fc05f5f2c.JPG

After a long drive through a thunderstorm, we had to go to the pub outside the hotel.

IMG_5416.JPG.acbb909c18cbf0fc36c7daa00d74fe8c.JPG

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6...Yep, 6-Flags!

IMG_5417.JPG.4dab4e0bfc4a8305bf807122c0defd9c.JPG

I can't believe 6-Flags has a line for no bags!

IMG_5418.JPG.075ad03efa71bf72db1982136b8df8cc.JPG

I have a weird feeling that this park is so familiar...

IMG_5420.JPG.7c6c6391c7705646a7a8863bef3368fa.JPG

First ride on Dark Knight. Everyone else waited for Superman and the rope to drop. We got on this BEFORE the rope dropped!

Stuck on the lifthill. No, I wasn't on it!

I never rode this at Great America in Santa Clara.

IMG_5439.JPG.bf3912c6d26ff47696139f71970ae88c.JPG

I finally got on it here.

IMG_5440.JPG.f715e231f424deea6101ded387827c0d.JPG

Gyendolynne was highly disappointed that she couldn't ride in the Wiggles car.

IMG_5441.JPG.43f3fb3496b126a9ff83865167ff1848.JPG

Do we have ERT on the Bull?

Goofy look from Gyendolynne, while I try to get the shot of the empty queue.

IMG_5444.JPG.193d36c92f9e8593f21f923a29ce28ac.JPG

After 4 rides on the Bull, we went to ride Superman.

IMG_5445.JPG.669c14ee80216903e9d0372af5c8c4b4.JPG

It wouldn't be a complete trip without a beer.

IMG_5447.JPG.dcc34325a553d48625465dccf6aa118d.JPG

The park still has the areas that we used to have at the original Marriott's Great America.

IMG_5456.JPG.ba3ec5c26aeb7fdfa7eea2f96775deef.JPG

I had to ride Iron Wolf too...

IMG_5458.JPG.6acb26c405a081533e35426ae63771c2.JPG

The following day, we're onto Wednesday, we headed to Mason. First we had to stop at the Hard Rock Cafe in Indianapolis.

We couldn't go through Indianapolis without stopping at the Indy 500.

The next stop is Kings Island...see you soon.

We went to Kings Island on Thursday (6/3) with our Club TPR membership cards in hand. The early morning walk back to Diamondback and The Beast would prove to be very beneficial. We were able to ride Diamondback 4 times and The Beast twice. After that, we went around the whole park. It was a blast! The crowds were light because of the thunderstorms, from the night before, and the rain in the morning.

IMG_5478.JPG.5ba3a1e5ad9c08071e4fb4cf9eda0095.JPG

Arrive early and this is what you'll see. It is 9am.

Day 2, and it will be another great ERT on Diamondback.

See, this ERT is just AWESOME.

Our last stop on the MidWest trip was at Holiday World for Holiwood Nights. We had a great time meeting up with friends and riding the coasters. The Voyage is a beast, but The Raven more than makes up for it! Have a look at Scott’s TR for a full review on it. We all can’t wait for the Timberline trains. http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=55592

We also had so much fun at the water park. A BIG thanks to Scott and Shannon for suggesting that we go to it. Wildebeest was so fun. I am so happy that Holiday World has unlimited sunblock and drinks.

Day 2 of Holiwood Nights, after a full morning in the Water Park!

^Sorry about that Matt. It didn't sound like you were going to be around when we talked at West Coast Bash. We'll have to meet up the next time we come through. I really want to go to the Friendly Confines. We have never been there. They were out of town when we came through this time.
