Photo TR: Hanno and the IntimidaTour


Recommended Posts

Great pictures, as usual, Hanno--and you spelled "beaver" correctly.

 

I think Tennessee Tornado is probably the best ride Arrow ever made (at least in my experience). I remember thinking "this cannot be good" while topping the lifthill, but ended up loving that ride.

^thanks for confirming

i was just a little worried since it was 1 am when posting that update and i remembered another meaning to a word which sounded pretty similar to "beaver" so yeah..

just wanted to be on the safe side..

It's time for another installment of everyone's favorite game:

 

morw.jpg.4fb641e9fbffe5464c66c128307434e6.jpg

We've got a tough one today folks. The beefy frame and hairy arms suggest man, but something about the hair and curvature of the breasts suggests woman. This one may be too close to call.

Excellent pictures (as always) Hanno!

 

I was really surprised with Dollywood. I've heard about how everyone liked it so much, but I didn't think that it would have been this good! The whole day was just a great day. From ERT on and Arrow that kicked butt in the morning to what I think was the best meal a park had given us, to a crazy ERT session on Thunderhead in the rain!

 

I so want to go back soon.

Too close to call? If you can't easily tell you need to get your eyes checked.

You realize the two people in the row directly in front of him are chicks?

Let's see.. it's time for day 3 ;)

 

Basically this was a full day of Pigeon Forge Fun.

Started the day at Ober Gatlinburg and then got to do some zorbing, a quick credit run and Jurassic Boat Ride.

I'll start this update with Gatlinburg and depending on time.. i might add some more.

 

Ober Gatlinburg, during the winter time you should be able to do some skiing there, during the summer they have some other things to do including an alpine slide.

I loved going up the mountain and enjoying the mountain views. It basically made me miss the winter visits to Austria and the skiing i used to do there. I was kind of surprised to see the state the supports ,for the lift, were in.. i guess Austria keeps it a bit cleaner..

 

Anyway, enough rambling, picture time

on the road again, i loved this drive down the mountains.

But wait, there's more stuff that can be done while being in the area.

There's Zorbing.

 

At this moment i steel feel a bit bummed i did not do any of the zorbing and just took pictures of others having fun. The wet looked like so much fun..

maybe next time.. maybe..

 

ok, here's a bunch of images from that part of the day.

This should conclude the Pigeon Forge update, another amazing day during this trip.

DSC_0886.JPG.ff6e57a013c0a07d9dd77f2f74d187f5.JPG

ok, here we go.. it's time for some zorbing fun..

DSC_0887.JPG.13fb8ecb9aa8052441790cfe9ca23534.JPG

if only i would be able to take a picture like this.. hmmm

DSC_1004.jpg.e80daf3f8b9d2a90c732abdb5688211b.jpg

this does look like fun

DSC_1022.jpg.d64083476c49882209a28a4ede0f9b14.jpg

man boobs..

DSC_1026.jpg.f762b69fecd417fe0d574dfb19938c59.jpg

small overview of the setup

DSC_1029.jpg.b997fc1050e4ac0fd4ed2e904c44da56.jpg

so basically ther are 3 different kinds of zorbing.. dry (as you can see in this image)

DSC_1043.jpg.5af5f4e2de3a2f73302d24146fcd5f74.jpg

once you're done they might ask you to do a silly jump for pictures

DSC_1050.jpg.bfab79fae25b85c3a84eb6e2ee9aa69f.jpg

option number 2 is wet (single)

DSC_1058.jpg.346cbd26ae553ffea24b60f1d65e2406.jpg

which looks like a lot of fun..

DSC_1065.jpg.2e3e8fdd8b4bff83ca11f8e564e1159d.jpg

how's it going in there?

DSC_1070.jpg.964b0cd46faa67547b45675573566c42.jpg

just the getting out is not always as elegant...

DSC_1074.jpg.28b50c7b7fcdaf8d6b8d8a8d2139aecb.jpg

jump high ;)

DSC_1108.jpg.5b63366788f9e7356c629076292c888b.jpg

others are waiting on top of the hill for their turn

DSC_1135.jpg.9b3ae889a20300293a6f369a5d786ce7.jpg

dry zorb harness image.. plenty of straps..

DSC_1139.jpg.2c65b7b55678e3ebe68ec339c3b1c157.jpg

option 3.. wet (with friends)

DSC_1147.jpg.50c1e17d119c29572252c7d090548172.jpg

there are 2 people in there...

DSC_1163.jpg.965d2daf32cd3da78f31f1556b9e4b26.jpg

numero uno

DSC_1169.jpg.b977b3585adb709e9125df2786d4584a.jpg

and the second individual..

DSC_1185.jpg.2bc4e72cc38935c0fa18baf38ecb5732.jpg

nice air

DSC_1189.jpg.f1c758c67d3b0b1a635560d83c6a0b05.jpg

side by side wet.. doesn't look nearly as much fun as the previous wet (with friends) run..

DSC_1231.jpg.56952e0d713019db406a0369ace2cb6d.jpg

yeah.. you do get soaked

DSC_1245.jpg.4d1099c57d7879653a228c6bfe85e34e.jpg

looking at the others..

DSC_1252.jpg.58c3be9aca8b7f60485f61ec5e910be4.jpg

different line/track for the different options..

DSC_1261.jpg.5c14932448655bd007e0956386fe1b00.jpg

ehm.. that's some interesting air

DSC_1264.jpg.02da5fe0f8038caa641bb5d6f5a25a94.jpg

overview of the hill

DSC_1268.jpg.741dff80b605bf2c8c1b5ca4b7082f12.jpg

don't worry Robb, i'm not taking a picture of you.. ;)

DSC_1287.jpg.119f8a60b1546fb7ce9a3612ae89a303.jpg

i've seen some weird jumping.. but this...

DSC_1290.jpg.93738d48b4c3ece8664efb1edf15af75.jpg

and yes.. she was "grinding" him.. those hands are there for a.....

DSC_1298.jpg.b72d10bf89663cec26491d0748de6971.jpg

ehhmmm

DSC_1337.jpg.bc062ad7883ecc5ed7cd5a8ed127e7c9.jpg

just a random person.. did the wet with his clothes on.. why??

DSC_1352.jpg.591593ea14db14f7f07c5cb1e00f3861.jpg

doing the dry run.. you can go a bit sideways as well...

DSC_1369.jpg.3ed8b4553eccecf61817d3d1c22c4255.jpg

which gives a very nice dizzy effect when getting out and back on solid ground..

DSC_1475.jpg.b6b365acc11c70d47c1782d7c681922b.jpg

more wet fun..

DSC_1498.jpg.04436a29e9ba44a81127258d5fa1d9f2.jpg

it's a boy...

DSC_1544.jpg.32e2aea94aeba62084a8200a08cca2bf.jpg

ok, that's a different way of getting out..

DSC_1567.jpg.022210cf973b7a1e1be365e25fddf0bb.jpg

trying to flip and flip and flip in the wet..

DSC_1576.jpg.eaa74f5f7cea6383e421810206fbc531.jpg

remember.. feet first

DSC_1600.jpg.c701755cb522a8adfed22b0f2e5276ec.jpg

more fun with friends

DSC_1618.jpg.b06dc652f28615749f556fb77303a56b.jpg

glad to be back?

DSC_1661.jpg.3204b512ab4f7fda826de8c6c67a0169.jpg

yeah :)

DSC_1681.jpg.0f0bddbb3b982d283a1c8eaa03b2fc55.jpg

owh boy, can i please go again??

DSC_1738.jpg.48c9792199149b6a6c4e0f91a1e2da91.jpg

Awesome pictures again Hanno!

 

I noticed one thing with the Nascar Speedpark coaster, aren't you supposed to turn left in Nascar?

 

And I couldn't believe that Zorbing would be that fun! It was a blast. And, we got to take the bus ride to and from the Zorbing place backwards, thanx to our excellent bus driver!
