North Midwest Coaster Roadtrip: Day 1 of 3 - Theme Park Review Day at Six Flags Great America!!!

 

What a great way to start the North Midwest Coaster Roadtrip by hanging out with Theme Park Review at Six Flags Great America!  I have been following Theme Park Review about 5 years and finally I was going to get to meet Robb, Elissa, and KidTums!  Of course other TPR well-known celebrity!  It was one of my best days of my life!  Great people and great day with Ted and all of other coaster enthusiast that day!  Also finally met the great geek god from Wisconsin, Patrick aka Traincrossin!  It was definite a fun day.  Have I said it enough?  It was that awesome!  I would definite do TPR trip one day.  Hell with the rain, we got rain out for short time and join the TPR Bridge Party.  Shortly after the rain stop, we got to do ERT on Viper and Raging Bull! O-M-G!  It was PURE AWESOME!

 

SIDENOTE: I have visited SFGAm once and only been on 1 coaster. I was with this girl and she said she like theme parks and going on rides and come to find out that she actually hate it. So I only got to go on Batman: The Ride and the Rapid River ride. That day was a waste...you know the rest of the story with her and I. I dun goofed up! But this was MUCH better trip!

 

We are at Six Flags Great America!

 

OMG! It's Robb Alvey! I can't believe it is actually him! Let me check my pulse... I'm still good to go!

 

Start the day with the famous TPR group shot! (Photo credit: Robb Alvey)

Time to board on our flight which is Superman - Ultimate Flight!

At the end of the great day at Six Flags Great America, it was pouring down. Did we leave the park? Heck no! We stayed and made our way to TPR bridge party! Little Dipper ERT was cancelled but Viper ERT was ON! Shortly the rain stopped, we made our way to Viper. WOW! What a great ride on Viper in the dark and the track was still wet! AMAZING! We did as many laps for about 30 minutes. Next surprise was Raging Bull ERT! It really trash Diamondback off my top 10 list. I was impressed with the amount of airtime in the back of Raging Bull! I love it! In all and all, A HUGE THANKS to Robb Alvey and Elissa Alvey for putting together a great event at Six Flags Great America!
