Thanks for all the comments! It's time for another update!

 

Part One! Today we visited the incredible, Undercover Boss featured, Silver Dollar City! This sister park to Dollywood was amazing! They had absolutely incredible food, awesome rides, and even more incredible food! This was one of best US parks I have been to. The employees were extremely friendly, and the TPR events (ERT and tours) were absolutely amazing! There really is no better way to visit a park than with TPR! Silver Dollar City also has the best collection of double entendre signs I have ever seen, and Russel's answer to the question during lunch was the single greatest answer I have ever heard in my life! Anyway, on to the pictures! (Silver Dollar City was so amazing there will be two updates!)

4FF01.jpg.0db91d7144a3ae193ddb5936721be5b8.jpg

Time for my first ever visit to Silver Dollar City!

4FF02.jpg.daef4ba34f414da82d1bc5f9a4db9d80.jpg

Hmmmm, 1880, 88 mph, coincidence?

4FF03.jpg.3a877342c4258743f17739d2638ced37.jpg

Head to the rides first? Hell no, FOOD! Unfortunately, they weren't open yet :(

4FF04.jpg.435188a26b78f6f5c0b2e5bc4553db91.jpg

Mmmm, getting it all ready!

4FF07.jpg.95adbffcd9326667d9d6b63621e9afbf.jpg

Just a small second breakfast! Delicious Cinnamon Roll, pecan pastry, lemon pastry, brownie and two cookies!

4FF05.jpg.54d4a7e49da079c71addf4c495101fc1.jpg

So we have food, and now a Fatty!!!!! Holy crap, I HAVE A MOOB ;(

4FF06.jpg.0040ccadf906f0c72431c8d8318e4772.jpg

My plot to get Dan in a diabetic coma and let the gAyCErs have their way with him is going according to plan.

4FF08.jpg.b6c215532e49a7ee4527eb46c17e6379.jpg

While waiting for "Fire in the Hole," the ride, not Dan's bathroom visit, we stumbled upon the Firemens Cemetery!

4FF09.jpg.4871c0c5668ef2f7412351d1fac12292.jpg

John has adopted Barry M. Deeper as his official Pornstar Alias, complete with the tagline, "We will be the last to let you down!"

4FF10.jpg.ee26763369956bd93c502f21939103cd.jpg

Fire in the Hole was still getting set up so we decided to head over to Powder Keg! I was really looking forward to this ride and it absolutely delivered. I do not understand why more parks don't have this! It was incredible!

4FF11.jpg.5e93d222ef5bae67bd94fe5c4ae28a89.jpg

The explosive launch building!

4FF12.jpg.c5ee1ce3e4f756f08272f74471ecd7ac.jpg

This was the Ace train. They were too heavy and blew up the ride.

4FF13.jpg.0141e11853160b27482e146e99eee7c1.jpg

Due to all the UFO abductions in the midwest, Fire In The Hole has to make sure that they specify that the flashing lights are strobe lights. Too many people would crap their pants and start crying before this sign was made.

4FF14.jpg.7bc263db4dd17caaa0f19678a852efe5.jpg

Too dark for pictures in the ride, so I give you the outside of the ride!

4FF15.thumb.jpg.abce6cca8ed7f26a12c878fd7b8db921.jpg

They did have this cool dog though! Don't worry Bryan, he is well taken care of and just uses the cage to sleep ;)

4FF16.jpg.c8eeadaf42588a17566876e26b93318c.jpg

Yeah, I'm sure the white trash americans have all used the tongs. I think I'll pass.

4FF17.jpg.e11702ea382a1ec8aa3bc67ba7ab4b35.jpg

Freshly shaved and peeled skin for you to take home! Nothing says American like pork fat that you take home and fry in FAT!!!!

4FF18.jpg.fa68d0633f63a4015b76538506566b85.jpg

Hurry up and finish cooking, it looks delicious!

4FF19.jpg.e69253bcb171a89753e185220b3e4f91.jpg

Even veggies look amazing at this park! (Your welcome for the veggie porn Bryan)

4FF20.jpg.fe5a37d3882d6671db079d0e50b557e3.jpg

I understand the "Low Carb" means no potatoes, but do you really need to add a tortilla? Either way, it looks delicious!

4FF21.jpg.90196f5a8d27728cef85afb560d8a591.jpg

It really is there, just ask Becky Thatcher!

4FF22.jpg.40028a4582425256909cd728254f3dc4.jpg

Barry M. Deeper takes a stroll through beautiful Silver Dollar City!

4FF23.jpg.494d7f80959b12fc2009e254b280ac42.jpg

:)

4FF24.jpg.0d7f9a5ff889c0f18690fbfd4eefe92b.jpg

Please don't drink the water, but......

4FF25.jpg.2be7b1dda66fdca655d2ec0fa7813c34.jpg

...make sure you go down the tunnel and get soaked in our not safe for drinking Disney California Adventure colored water ride!

4FF26.jpg.f77ea39aa00e501340b647878cc0a0b1.jpg

This chef serves up a mean skillet!

4FF27.thumb.jpg.6a9cca74b87bc8a5002c2174a81432ee.jpg

Oh Mylanta, it's going to be one of those days!

4FF28.jpg.37135b0feeb0bf6a57e437c8120e29b5.jpg

Next up was Wildfire! This ended up being a lot better than I expected! Great ride!

4FF29.jpg.eee88dc56d61439cf3b313ac313766b9.jpg

Now compare this flying through the trees ride to Scream at SFMM and tell me that theming really doesn't matter.

4FF30.thumb.jpg.9fa133171ef44a9fbe8fb948fbd5749e.jpg

Watch out for the trees!

4FF31.jpg.90d76fc3bb8be9600271d5f3a5a5bbc7.jpg

One side...

4FF32.jpg.fcb085f7cd329f0968fbb560670cec42.jpg

...and then the other!

4FF33.jpg.4416a0722b7dd8d7ef347fc9ea8814ef.jpg

White shirts, check. Black shorts, che.....crap. Russ!

4FF34.jpg.f7197f6e8ee3629fea2ed52f0dc278a7.jpg

Awesome picture of Chuck!

4FF35.thumb.jpg.9ad361ff452581474729669ce5fb4abd.jpg

TPR upside down!

4FF36.jpg.e498739ac65cf7010dd9597200c43395.jpg

I'm sure he gets all the chicks with that shirt!

4FF37.jpg.4e40096355200bfb825c2fd994c2d4f2.jpg

Crap, now what am going to do with my Bunsen Burner? I'm definitely not going to waste a weeks wages of $1 for a locker!

4FF38.jpg.80ec7952e4581cdd4b1da3c9d1e985ae.jpg

They took off the 'RS' at the end of the sign when they heard that TPR was visiting ;)

4FF39.jpg.de6b4ffacaaedcfc9ae6d6d96e250803.jpg

I swear, the bee yelled "Down with King Alvey and Long Live ACE" before it stung Kevin and tried to kill him.

4FF40.jpg.8527d81c98053dc894279bc2dd88fb0e.jpg

I guess this is part of the now defunct head chopper log ride.

4FF42.jpg.44001a58f6a75853a3d7ba9970ffe0f4.jpg

Just remember to not drink the water!

4FF43.jpg.c94cb867cf8c21fca4c7f07f311e5263.jpg

I don't think that kid likes it!

4FF44.jpg.f7fec9e140f5af345cad1e1d83745c21.jpg

Barry M. Deeper shows the proper hand technique. Squeeze gently, don't pull!

4FF45.thumb.jpg.fbe43affb8964706058f29edf0f44eec.jpg

Catawampus' cousin?

4FF46.jpg.66b1e036564d424f701a13127a9b0697.jpg

Study this picture, there is a pop quiz coming up next!

4FF47.jpg.3142318092465a1bc0ae4228e0655e94.jpg

Ok, GO! You have three minutes to label all the parts!

4FF48.jpg.2c380611d71412272fbed4556d5c60aa.jpg

It's a really fun ride, but it had long loading times and a very short cycle time.

4FF49.thumb.jpg.26293b3de73a4a78caa00767a72c7581.jpg

Awesome, they even gave him a lazy eye!

4FF50.jpg.386a047ac518e5eced265455c43bc2f2.jpg

TPR takeover of The Giant Swing!

4FF51.jpg.5c4dbd970a5b79037ed1088822d00d49.jpg

Weeeeeeee!

4FF52.jpg.8a28afc9b3eb4f661666e6efaa32e097.jpg

Amy tries the Barry M. Deeper technique.

4FF53.jpg.aeec31caa8ddd5fa85fe1dd1fac2bc22.jpg

That has gotten many people in trouble ;)

4FF55.jpg.6ec12130e75093f143a89c9589719380.jpg

Up next was Thunderation, another awesome surprise, but it was a little rough.

4FF56.jpg.f021e5feb04d82cc21f06ea8fda75bca.jpg

Amy and Dan may look like they are facing forward, but they are actually facing backwards!

4FF57.jpg.aaa89843d0fdded3c3b33be277cf7258.jpg

Bryan is still disturbed at having to find all the parts on the previous 'fatty' picture quiz.

4FF58.jpg.7de7e3550cd94c5ca5ee4da4b162d551.jpg

Dan waves goodby before the cars crashed together.

4FF59.thumb.jpg.b59c96f7d1e6836bb21b5937ccda3654.jpg

More parks need to have this!

4FF60.jpg.8244a7591eb12bed3362967991c7cacc.jpg

Nice sign, but I have no clue what it was for.

4FF62.jpg.121facea4a9cdea2155f7b3013788cf2.jpg

Time for some credit whoring on the Grand Exposition Coaster!

4FF61.jpg.f9a4c68bc4edd0bd671d10ca7ef55406.jpg

Look at the intense layout!

4FF63.jpg.db05f2ef0bba36e3717db458d32d9fe6.jpg

;)

4FF64.thumb.jpg.1d608da427b91e87156b93379635b39e.jpg

I grab another quick bite to eat before we head down the cave! Yes, they have an actual Cave you can explore in the middle of the park!!!! Stay tuned!

It's time for part two of the Silver Dollar City update!

5BDay01.jpg.a71aa1b7620a7607ced8cd6e72ba387b.jpg

The cave is huge! There are a ton of places to get lost in!

5BDay02.jpg.f5f6b4f555be43c37f49fb9265e162de.jpg

And exactly 9 months later over 50 children were born on the same day!

5BDay03.jpg.819d16503a7cb80876b55118070a5b26.jpg

This is the portion of the cave we get to visit.

5BDay04.jpg.6fb04aea2bd1e84c6c87873393cd0fad.jpg

About to head down into the cave!

5BDay05.jpg.1116c611ca28c03badab4cd08156dfac.jpg

Pretty small entrance.

5BDay06.jpg.d17df42128c80715ddd849c14f693c57.jpg

With this group, what could possibly go wrong?

5BDay07.jpg.57e04fe9448dba0598d185810a7f4eca.jpg

Unfortunately, the bat didn't attack anyone and cause a stampede.

5BDay08.jpg.251ba3b09dfb530d6efda5684461fc28.jpg

Wow, this hole is almost as big as some TPR members'!

5BDay10.jpg.f3fbf91b6f30029555bd824eb93120f6.jpg

Starting our walk down into the colon of the cave

5BDay11.jpg.906d11c056084808990a740342df8eed.jpg

Amy in front of one of the polyps

5BDay13.jpg.0ba2a33ece77c76b603c3cb98d2604f9.jpg

The point of insertion

5BDay14.thumb.jpg.fe6f7eac278bc47b2df5fd9e9896a4bb.jpg

Reminds me of 127 hours, but unfortunately, no one cut their arm off

5BDay15.jpg.11e76e2c88cc98bc0489d9fabec52d59.jpg

The ceiling here supposedly looks like a shoe

5BDay16.jpg.dc84922cc029db16716fa4eee9ff707c.jpg

I would love to see assault with a tiny ball of clay!

5BDay18.thumb.jpg.779eb3a0583cc7806c0ff5ce4d3eda12.jpg

Pretty big drop!

5BDay19.jpg.2c41b5b0e9121f7e4c0c7caa838ed7b3.jpg

Tour of the large intestines

5BDay21.jpg.e6e8e3e455c3a370d01990137453c30b.jpg

Amy takes a break in the cloud room, where the ceiling is supposed to look like low lying clouds.

5BDay23.jpg.70ef746ff9e1eeeb3382bb071c8b66a1.jpg

Oooh, much prettier than World of Color!

5BDay25.thumb.jpg.c0f0e87c97f84bd0c0e7330799a62a9b.jpg

Looking up the urethra

5BDay27.thumb.jpg.9bfef0821818cfdb735e0928b68ef208.jpg

Too much water for Dan

5BDay29.thumb.jpg.00b167616a7a6a3d9a1a0077edec177e.jpg

Even more pretty lights

5BDay30.jpg.1330ba9491e323ad26966792d1c7c6dd.jpg

A nice Fatty Family Picture

5BDay31.jpg.77da78a9fb71c81aefca08d5d1360579.jpg

Sounds like something at the City Museum

5BDay32.jpg.7e1a2d807cd03bb938c1eab29efa0273.jpg

We're setting Boody Traps!

5BDay33.jpg.e926e7ba704cdb7b1e32a906dbeb2270.jpg

TPR Pool Party anyone?

5BDay34.jpg.5c6454a8b0d9c002dd9d1d7b34235488.jpg

We found Chester Copperpot!

5BDay35.thumb.jpg.7f7550ed62511744bbf1b1a926b6aff7.jpg

Cool looking cave features

5BDay40.thumb.jpg.a52e60b3aded3bc724a56df868e60239.jpg

We almost fell down here, but we were saved by the Pinchers of Power!

5BDay41.jpg.3f6b5c5b2446a2a5dc310739ca2ca819.jpg

On our way back into civilization and 150 degree heat!

5BDay42.thumb.jpg.551c6f56ebe983b8534fd522a730b10d.jpg

Sweating like a pig with my fat towel, I had to get a drink!

5BDay43.jpg.689fa82d9dd19824c3537e2db7b0c300.jpg

And some Apple Cider and CINNAMON BREAD!!!

5BDay44.thumb.jpg.288a82856038ea13d77aec524831acff.jpg

Beverly Hillbillies season 576 is now on sale in the gift shop!

5BDay46.jpg.e8439fc0c5827d14166897dd00ac8062.jpg

Hello....what are you?

5BDay45.thumb.jpg.bdc008b6d71d4428099f6ece780f96e8.jpg

Ok, I'll take one of each!

5BDay47.thumb.jpg.f3fc8f79c7d3fbc897a01db316e4e333.jpg

Even nasty veggies taste delicious here!

5BDay48.thumb.jpg.10fce24d8acbb7aa7317530dc9c8c29b.jpg

Mmmmmmm

5BDay50.jpg.05fa113ab0808564b0de796ae0a3e903.jpg

Dan's theme park find of the year, Diabetes friendly Kettle Corn!

5BDay51.jpg.f45ac1630700c56137ba1b5e6ae98cc7.jpg

Next we took the train ride and got robbed by these Baldknobbers.

5BDay52.jpg.2ae2d79ef04cfbd46e2b5282b889c5d9.jpg

Parts of the Mid-West are still learning about this thing called Elektricity!

5BDay54.jpg.bde864d53dafa78aaf7bde513f347295.jpg

Then it was time for a water shooting jail ride

5BDay55.jpg.e21483d409d870d8363beb041d165100.jpg

Dan realizes he made a mistake when they said to take out your gun and start shooting.

5BDay56.jpg.9a50aa0fe1134aa208a40cf945e6b3fc.jpg

Time for a delicious buffet lunch!

5BDay58.jpg.901e1bea4ec09c1abf2b0af2330917a0.jpg

These fried fat morsels are an ACE staple.

5BDay59.jpg.ec30f13682ceb2e556a362ceca7ddef6.jpg

Looks like a Walmart convention for fat fried fat! (This picture is dedicated to William)

5BDay60.thumb.jpg.4d6d6ef59e83241993bb5d888598300e.jpg

Amy loves looking in holes!

5BDay62.jpg.db74d6cbd5db2d92e0533655cc8e26aa.jpg

What the hell is that thing!?!?

5BDay61.jpg.42f94d8a5d08a6d057b2c0a51e081c78.jpg

Is that thing real!

5BDay63.jpg.b09ed4bc86b9ed0d65d8da4ff64ce73e.jpg

Quick Amy, get in the picture so she doesn't see me and eat me!

5BDay64.jpg.7858efcfca1a84b5f1c334b6756d3bd1.jpg

We are just a little hot. Time for the not safe to drink raft ride!

5BDay65.jpg.0cf9ccdd66deaa3bd2fabf44e9872867.jpg

It was so hot that even Amy decided to join us!

5BDay67.jpg.9bf7c924d3efe37ba3bd0fbafabf69b1.jpg

Not too wet, just a few sprinkles of diseased water.

5BDay68.jpg.522cb10f6628a78b6d3f6e6287ea5bb5.jpg

They had a bunch of interesting jerky flavors!

5BDay69.jpg.40f0b07b59fdf4f11245552a508ff72a.jpg

So of course I decided to try them all!

5BDay71.jpg.cfe20febbe38cf06081adeaf07ee5a23.jpg

Dan's eHarmony profile picture. Still no replies.

5BDay72.jpg.e856d26a60b7801b60bd4afb62c2109f.jpg

Time for some delicious Ice Cream!

5BDay73.thumb.jpg.c2bf6cd1c4f682a7ae50e008ada44ab9.jpg

A simple Banana Split for me!

5BDay74.jpg.7e1b7817d30cc2d61d53c717d02ea00e.jpg

Definitely not Tyler and Robby approved toppings though!

5BDay75.thumb.jpg.90750001ec70fe2f78448f4075a0c467.jpg

Nighttime rides on Powder Keg!

5BDay76.jpg.c031d457d10b630b0bb24916874011c1.jpg

Dan's tough guy or throw up impression

5BDay77.jpg.b7e5fef817318b8d62733c51aa1fa402.jpg

Barry M. Deeper's John Vasquez impression

5BDay78.jpg.816c7645dbb57f3695be401c673d3119.jpg

Amy's, I can't eat another thing look.

5BDay79.thumb.jpg.0564ae1b9ff67ab25ed05f9b8b540189.jpg

Ok, maybe some strawberries and cream.

5BDay80.thumb.jpg.c5472bcd070e3b4395d05dd3bc05d8b8.jpg

Only people in the mid-west would be stupid enough to put their last name with their graffiti!

P1030401.jpg.b139c1b8637f60e99c89a9e07fec5ea7.jpg

Up next is the St. Louis Arch and the City Museum!

You get EXTRA cool points for including the Goonies references.

 

The cave was awesome - before and after my group e-stopped it. When the lights went out and stayed out - it was kinda scary.

That would have been awesome! Stampede, death, blood (Glad you liked the Goonies references!)

^ I thought for sure that we would be too heavy for it and break it. That train ride was the worst part because you were all nice and comfortable in the cool cave and then slowly got pulled into the raging furnace of hell!

Couldn't have explained it better! Although the threat of being left in the cave forever if we didn't get close and personal in the train was a bit scary lol
