Chadster's Vacation Adventures: Final Edition!


Recommended Posts

So someone wanted a little whoring for the third wish that I was granting, so, here it is


This is Kiddieland in Pittsburg Kansas. Kiddieland is located inside Lincoln park where you can find a golf course, putt putt golf, and other park type things you would expect. I haven't located too much info on the park, but the gentleman who runs it absolutely adored the kids that were there and treated them all as if they were his grandchildren. (Yes, he was older) Looked as if he only had one employee and they rotated operations of the handful of rides on property.


So, without further talk, here is a very short whorish report.


Here we are, ready to whore.


But first, lets take a quick look around.


I couldn't fit :(


These were some old school 40's rides


And a do it yourself ride


Do you like to do it youself? Well, on this train, you can't.


Hmmm, what is that back there?


Why yes, yes it is! It's a NERD SHOT!


Oh yeah, and a kiddie credit. So no, I won't show the picture of me riding it. Sorry. Not gonna happen. Cost me $1.50 to get spun around about 10 times. The old man was having a blast with the kidos that were there.


You know, it really was a neat, very small park in a small town that just was peaceful. Who knows, maybe one day I'll settle down in a small town, but just not anytime soon!

Ahem. Chadster, I requested a trip report of this place with the expectation that I would see photographic evidence of you sinking low in your whoring endeavors. Track layouts can viewed anytime. But watching you wallow in the dark side of this hobby, whoring yourself out and doing the dirty work of credit collecting is what we wanted to see.



Okay, actually, in all seriousness, thank you very much for posting this. I requested it because I was planning on stopping there myself this summer (until life events happened and I moved halfway across the country instead) and wanted to see what I missed. This place looks amazing. There were a few ride models I've never seen before (like the planes in the second photo down and those do-it-yourself cars) and it is really neat to see that such rare rides are still preserved and in working order. It's like a step back in time.


So now I'm wondering: will we get to see the rest of your Colorado adventures soon?

While I still refuse to post that onride photo of me, I will say that had someone chosen the Jersey Shore Whore option, I would have gladly posted multiple pictures of myself whoring, but since no one did, you guys may or may not ever see it


^ Eventually, yes! I will run a little wish granting contest again this weekend with more options, so stay tuned, wish granting will continue next week, there *might* even be a VTR option...just sayin'

So here it is, the awesome, the amazing, the epic Deep South Bash trip report! First of all I would like to thank everyone at Six Flags who worked to put on an event that, in my opinion, showed up their sister park, Magic Mountain. Their hospitality was over the top with Melinda, the parks President, stopping to chat with us while she was out walking in the park.


Mindbender still beats Shockwave. Dare Devil Dive I thought to be a little tame versus what I was hoping it was to be, but is still a solid ride that is packing the public in with 2 hour waits. The ride crew on DDD was on their game pushing trains out as fast as the GP would let them. While I'm not a total fan of lockers, this is a ride they may want to consider it on as the ops spent most of their time trying to get people to put their crap up.


Overall, this is one event I would love to see happen again next year. The time of year brought lighter GP crowds and the weather was awesome! If you didn't attend this event, you missed out!


This will be a longer PTR than I would normally do because this place was so awesome and we all had such a good time. I'll start off with the Haunted Mansion tour! Yes, we got to walk up into the scenery and get personal with the animatronics!




Oh, and if you are in any of these photos and would like an original fully watermarked copy for your collection, message me with your e-mail address and I will send it to you!


Up before the sun to attend one of the best TPR events of the year!


The park teased us the night before with Goliath, and they continued to tease us as they added the trains and tested.


These guys are all lined up to get their tickets at the ticket booth.


From the parks newest employee!


The gathering of the geeks.


Robb just asked eveyone if they would like FREE BEER and wine. Looks like majority rules.


"This lanyard has magical powers, is very durable, and if you lose it, no FREE BEER or ERT for you!"


The pearly gates have opened and everyone is running to the breakfast table


Good gravy people!


NERD!! Oh. Wait. That's ME! And thanks to Jake for the assist on the photo!


So after my #400 on DDD, we made our way to a Club TPR Exclusive.


A walk-thru tour of Haunted Mansion! Membership has its privy's


In we go thru the rear entrance




They let us walk anywhere we wanted as long as we didn't cross over. As you can see the ride was drained, but they had all of the effects turned on.


So, since everyone gave me so much crap about not floating through the mansion back in May, I not only rode it twice, but also walked thru it, so there. :p


You float from this way. I think. Basically we entered just after the photo op at the front of the ride.


The middle dude was yanking on the front dudes pants trying put something long and round inside.


This is a really tripped up ride.


This is where we took that group photo posted on the offical DSB thread.


My, what a big tounge you have



We are all still taking it in, trying to figure out who dreams this stuff up.


Open wide and say ahhhhhhh



We got up close and personal with this attraction. But not near as up close and personal as R.D. did with Mindbender. Want to see how close, come back for the next part to see.


This is where you turn and go into the creepy part.





This dragon thingy...


is controlled by all this


Boat lift used to lift boats that are dropped off and pulled out behind those black doors. Yeah, true backstage tour.


We went through the door and walked in here.





This is the crew that sings the monster anthem


Bye! But wait. There's more!


This is the reservoir for Monster Mansion


This boat was too scared to enter the mansion.


Out the back of the Mansion we found Goliath waiting for us!


Bunch of TPR members, I mean dummies.


But not for us! The tour of Monster Mansion was Epic, but the park was just getting started! Part II coming soon where we will have some lunch, go on a photo walk back of the entire park, and more!

Here we go with Part 2 - Photo Walkback


So after the mansion tour we had tons of ERT on DDD, Mindbender, Cyclone, Scorcher, and Batman!


The drop was good.


Looks like Adam was having a good time.


Double shot!


But the real reason we came to DSB was for Mindbender! YAY!


This ride delivers! Ride manufactures today just can't seem to match the quality of what the pope of coasters could do.


Full of Awesomeness!


This is another reason we come to bash events, empty queues!


Empty Trains!


And an empty park, yea!


I just like this shot, so I stuck it in.


Another creation from the Pope. Best. Enterprise Wheel. Evar..


If you look close, you can see an arrow train and an arrowplane in this pic


Everyone lined up for lunch and chowed down on some of the best food at a SF's event I've ever had.


Om nom nom nom


and this is what we had in our backyard while chowing down


So it's photo walkback time. How many Club TPR shirts do you spot?


I gave up counting, but I did manage to get this shot of GASM


Shots you just can't get anywhere else but on a trip or at a bash!




Nerds walking.




Judging by the looks on their faces, the water challenge should be, well, challenging.


GP just hanging out.




Guys, NO! We are NOT touring the food warehouse!


These nerds are waiting for...




They raise chickens in here for that awesome chicken sandwhich we had at lunch.


What's in here? Fresh vegies?


The girl in the "Resource Protection" office was waving to us. Can some please explain what the heck resource protection is? Is it the prevention of employees from leaving? EPA office? Theft?


Except for us!


Wile riding his rocket on the wall of fame.


Line for the mens room?


Dude, you have to have all of your limbs to ride. Too soon?


We got some cool shots of Goliath!


The park let us spread out a good distance as a group to allow everyone to get the shots they wanted. No cattle herding here!


This guy apparently thinks he's riding Mindbender.


Choo Choo. The people on the train were like WTF?


Zach was hanging with the park hotties. But you can see what I mean, they really let us spread out to take nerd shots.


Dive! Dive! Dive!





What used to be here? Hmmmmm.....


Ok, so that's all of Part II. What? No Mindbender Porn you say? Well, I'm saving the best for Part III, the final installment.

Final Installment!


Let's get up close and personal with Mindbender!


I'm talking REALLY up close!




The second train was undergoing some renovations. As a result, the line for mindbender was upwards of 90 minutes.


Through the trees!


Did I mention we got close, close enough to reach out and touch someone!


Loopy! Full of force, full of awesome.


Transfer nerd shot!


Rudie giving this oh sh!t section of the transfer track a complete inspection.


Make love to it!


That's the look of a man who is satisifed. Oddly enough, he had to burn one off afterwards.




This yellow thing makes Mindbender go vroom



They were adding boats to the rapids. I must say, this is one of the better rapids rides I've been on. It got us wet, forceful, and fun!


The Relax-o-nator!


Arrow log time! I think this was the third one built.


I wasn't going to ride Georgia Cyclone, but Sam talked me into it. We hit it in the magic seat and it wasn't too bad. But some of the expressions on these people faces tell me they had worse seats than we did.









Arco was up and running, the park made good on their promise to try and get it up for us, and they delivered!


So it was TPR Quest and FREE BEER time, we had singing, we had theft, we had fried pies and beer, and we had...






This quest business is really screwed up. Want to know how screwed up? You gotta show up!


So quest was over, the park handed out goodie bags that put the icing on a cake that was already iced. Full of awesome stuff. I can't thank them enough for all they did for us!


Now it was time for evening ERT! Ninja looks so good, but is sooo bad. Actually with the arrow trains, it rides pretty good.


So we practiced for the water challenge.


Empty? Go figure. Water challenge was awesome, we all got soaked, Robb was dumping water on people, but later got dumped on by Brad (Six Flags guru who set this whole thing up), but most important, we had fun!


What, that's all? Yep, that's all folks!


Hope you enjoyed reading as much as I did at the park. Next time, join us!

I still call shenanigans on the winning group on the Water Challenge, anyone with anything left in their cup at the end had to have cheated somehow.


Great pictures, it was an awesome event. I was really impressed with Dare Devil Dive. It was somewhat tame but overall was a lot of fun. I heard someone compare it to Cheetah Hunt which was an interesting comparison, both were very similar larger family style coasters that were fun but not that intense. I would probably give the edge to Dare Devil.


I was also surprised by the two woodies at SFOG. Scream Machine was running really well and looked great during the back stage tour. Georgia Cyclone was the surprise of the day for me, a little rough but really a fun ride. The back car was full of ejector air and was the perfect mix of fun old school rough and not painful rough, I loved it.

Sorry about the 400 photo, I had no idea how to work your camera! So different than mine


Fantastic photos man and what an epic day!


No worries man, the crew was really rushing us, which isn't a bad thing at all! And again, appreciate you doing that for me.


It really was the single best bash event for me so far, can't wait to do it again!


And Jo, yes, it was turned on

Wow a rare photo of me! Awesome coverage of the event, it was great meeting you and hanging out


PS, though my phone died I think we were at Lake Winnie at the same time; but we just went in for the two credits (screw the wacky worm) and had to peace. Yes, there were lots of hillbillies present! haha

I wondered what happened! The place was full of hicks, plus it was $5 off Mcdonalds day


@ Ross I agree!


And a Hello Kitty Tat - Winning!

Ok, so since I've had like one person ask me why I haven't done a N.E. trip report, I'll go ahead and do one. Take it or leave it, this is all you get.


Flew in early, whored the shore, blah blah blah. Went to Coney Island, survived getting mugged and beat to death, yadda yadda. Went to the hotel, watched Piers get drunk, blah blah. Headed to Quassy, rode on a train for the news, got boozed, blah blah. Went to Lake Compounce, got boozed then bruised on Wildcat, boo hoo. Somehow ended up at SFNE the next day, drank some more, rode some spinning room ride while buzzed, epic, and threw water on people off a mouse, blah blah blah. Woke up, stumbled to the bus, ate at some greek place that served pizza, bought Piers a drink in hopes he would sing Gaga, it didn't work. Blah blah. Oh yeah, drank some more, went to some ghetto park called Palace Playland, then about got ran over by a parade getting to the bus only to take us to this thing called Excalibur of which my ass is still sore from and where some pac man takeover occurred, yadda yadda yadda. Went to a lake with an effed up dark ride and some caterpiller ride that put a cover over your head, no soda machines, only water in the soda machines, also, no beer. Moving on. Arrived in Canadia, got the anal prob, Robb kinda liked it. Ended up at some slum hotel with no electric, so, we all went outside and drank. Someone slit their neck with a piece of glass, not sure why. Not sure I care, I was buzzed off some whacky drink that fatdaddy gave me. Now I know why they call him "fat"daddy. #wanttoforgetthatnight. Ended up at some unionized themepark where after each train the ops sat on the a$$, wish I had their job. Got on a bus, headed for pizza, and beer. Had pizza and beer, stumbled to walmart, people were buying smurf crap for some reason, blah blah blah. Rode some stuff thats going away at Great Escape, took over a mine train, [in racist chineese voice: thank you for ride boomerang, have good day now], got to roll back on some kiddie coaster at a jacked up mufflerman park called Magic Forest, not sure what kinda "magic" was going on here, but I felt violated when we left. After crying a little, we ended up at some Italian place that Elissa can't stop talking about, got drunk. Stumbled into the hotel, didn't sleep, left at 4am for home. True Story!


Great trip, too bad I can't remember much of it. Wish I could remember who asked if I was going to do a report, but I'm buzzed, and can't, but whoever you are, hope you are happy now!


After Piers drank this, he shoved the pitcher down his shirt, apparently he was affraid someone would take it from him, afterall, it is NJ


oddly enough, my import software gave this picture number 69


Practice makes perfect?


TPR trips are both fun and educational. Here we learned about the birds and the bees.


And here we learned, erm...


Taking it back to the old school.
