Hey TPR members!

 

This trip report is about my very first TPR adventure! Together with a bunch of other coaster geeks, we barrel rolled our way across the country to the keeper of the gate AND MORE! That trip was one of that 'Time of my life' experiences that will always be in my mind! It was really AWESOME and I honestly don't know how to describe that trip with words because Robb and Elissa put so much effort in organizing and making this trip so EPIC! Thank you VERY much! You guys rock and I'm definitely ready for another TPR *Explore the world* adventure! BUT, before going on another trip, I should finish this trip report, so back to the report! I will try to update this thread every day to give you guys an impression of all the fun we had during our trip throughout the UNITED STATES! I'm sorry about not having that many photos of my arrival and my first day in the US, but I just was too lazy in the first two days! Sorry for that! With that being said...

 

Are you ready for some AWESOME coaster goodness and TPR fun? Let's go...

 

Every trip starts with traveling and in my case it started with a nine hour flight from Frankfurt, Germany to Detroit, Michigan where I had a layover of 4 hours! My final destination was Houston, Texas where some other TPR members and I met to have some PRE trip fun with Iron Shark at Galveston's Pleasure Pier and Kemah's Boardwalk Bullet! Arriving in Texas was insane...I got out of the airport and it was like being hit of a giant heat wall! Welcome to Texas!

 

After having taken my shuttle to the first hotel (which was close to the airport) and checking in, I took a nap! I finally arrived in the States but I was just too tired to realize it! The next day, I had to wait for Bas', Werner's and Andrew's arrival. Together, we planned on having some coaster PRE trip fun at the Gulf of Mexico!

 

Galveston's Pleasure Pier is a very nice pier to stay! A good selection of different flat rides and of course the home of the lap bar only Euro Fighter IRON SHARK! It was really fun and since the coaster is almost built in the middle of the ocean, it's a really nice feeling to ride the coaster there! Especially the Star Flyer was kind of scary because the only thing you see is WATER when flying in the air. It's pretty awesome! After some rides on Iron Shark and the other rides there, we made our way to Kemah Boardwalk where Boardwalk Bullet was waiting for us! Since we were not interested in doing the other flat rides there, we decided not to buy the ALL DAY admission wristband. With that being said, we bought a single ticket for Boardwalk Bullet which was $6! It's a nice little woodie that is not too rough! I think after HADES 360 at the Dells during the trip every coaster seems to feel as smooth as Kumali in the UK! I thought it was really rideable and not too bad! We left the Pier after some rides on that woodie. There was a 3 hour car drive to San Antonio we had to take, to get to the first TPR hotel where all the members doing the Schlitterbahn pre trip add on were waiting! Dropping off the car at the airport in San Antonio and taking a cab to the hotel were the next steps to do though!

 

After having arrived at the hotel, we went to Longhorn Steakhouse where the other TPR members already celebrated the unofficial start of the trip!

 

Let's see some photos!

I wish I could have joined you guys on that pre-trip. Since I have to go back to Texas anyways (stupid Six Flags), I suppose a visit to the Houston area should be on the list. I'm looking forward to the rest of this report!

Here's another update of my TPR trip adventure! This time, I will report from our Schlitterbahn PRE trip add on day!

 

First of all, a HUGE thank you to the whole Schlitterbahn crew and Robb&Elissa who made this day AMAZING!

 

Schlitterbahn New Braunfels, TX was my first real waterpark because we don't have those kind of waterparks here in Germany! I liked it a lot especially with all the other TPR members! Together we had an AWESOME time!

 

After having arrived at Schlitterbahn, we got our wristbands and a great welcome breakfast buffet so that we were prepared for a FUN day at the park! Schlitterbahn offered us cabanas which were reserved for TPR only! It was really nice, because Schlitterbahn's staff kept an eye on our stuff, so we did not have to worry about that and could explore the park. We also got the so much needed ERT on Master Blaster and Blastenhoff (Blastenhoff included resort guests). All that good stuff has been a good start! Since the park is divided into two parks (Old and New Schlitterbahn AND there is a shuttle between those two parks) the group splitted after the walkback to Float the Falls, so people started exploring the park by their own!

 

Especially the TPR takeover of the lazy river in the older section of the park was AWESOME! We had EXTREME heat and I loved our SUN DANCE because the stones were so hot you could not stand on it for longer than 2 seconds!

 

After our day at Schlitterbahn we had the AWESOME Welcome Dinner at Grimaldi's where TPR handed out our tour bags, the itinerary and all that good stuff! We ate a LOT of good pizza and had a very good time there! It was a perfect ending for our Day 0!

 

Again, it was so much fun!

 

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them.

 

With that being said, let the photos tell the story!

The next day we visited Six Flags Fiesta Texas!

 

As soon as we arrived at the park, we were given our wristbands, our VIP Iron Rattler wristbands and all the other good stuff we needed to survive a SIXtastic day! We started our day with some ERT on Superman Krypton Coaster and Poltergeist, BUT not only got we ERT on Superman and Poltergeist, we also got ERT on Pandemonium and Scooby Doo Dark Ride which was AMAZING! Thank you guys for having arranged that awesomeness!

 

After Elissa handed out the Qbots, we were free to explore the park by our own, so we got some credits and when it was time for lunch we made our way to the VIP room of the park where a BIG buffet waited for us! YUMMY YUMMY! During lunch, Robb&Elissa reminded us of the opportunity to take the bus back to the hotel, get some rest and come back some hours later! Many people took that rest and went back to the hotel! For those of us who couldn't get enough of the park, Six Flags offered an Iron Rattler backstage tour! We had the chance to explore the backstage area of the EPIC Iron Rattler in smaller groups! In addition to that, the park arranged a Mini Van who brought us to the top of the Iron Rattler area which allowed us to take some AWESOME photos the GP would never get!

 

After the backstage tour we had some more time to explore the park and get the other credits! After the park closed the rides, they showed the laser show ''Lone Star Nights'' where we had VIP seating! Nice show and great atmosphere!

 

Right after the show we got some more ERT! Hooray! Night ERT on Superman and Sky Screamer! Perfect ending for a SIXtastic day, I think! Again, a HUGE thank you to the park and Robb&Elissa who made this Six Flags day possible!

Awesome trip report so far Marcel! Am having Congo River flashbacks.

 

I'm glad he has a picture of me right after I gave up and just walked for the last 1/4 mile of the ride.

 

When looking at that picture I assumed you caused the log jam.

 

Ok, now a bunch of TPR members have tried Grimaldi's in Houston before I've sampled at the the original location. I was supposed to eat there with a friend in 2 days but had to cancel.

Another update of the TPR Texas/Midwest Trip! This time it is NOT Six Flags, BUT Sea World San Antonio!

 

Since I have never been to any Sea World Park, Sea World San Antonio was my very first one and I pretty much liked it! The staff has been very friendly and offered us a bunch of perks!

 

After our arrival at the park, we got our wristbands and we were took over to our first ERT this morning...the Mack Super Splash Water Coaster ''Journey to Atlantis'' which allowed us to take a short break from the extreme heat! Right after that it was time for some Steel Eel ERT! Good coaster which I only like in the front! The back part tried to kill my back and at this time I didn't know that it was not only Steel Eel that was trying to kill my back on the trip. It can be WORSE! *Wisconsin Dells..cough...cough...*

 

Steel Eel was not the last ERT we got. We also got morning ERT on Great White! Not as good as Goliath at Six Flags Fiesta Texas but worth riding it, at least it is a CREDIT Between Steel Eel ERT and Great White ERT, I took a run to the kiddy coaster ''Shamu Express'' because Elissa told us that it can be VERY crowded later the day! Thanks for that hint!

 

During our fabulous lunch, Sea World surprised us with some special guests...They brought three different kind of animals which was a VERY nice surprise! Since everybody got a kind of lot, Robb chose different winners for some Sea World park stuff like stuffed animals! Again, thank you very much! (I know I may say the word ''Thank you'' very often but it is true! All the perks we got is REALLY worth saying it!)

 

After lunch everyone had some more time to explore the parks and to watch all the shows the park offered! In the afternoon the bus departed. It was time to head for Dallas, because Six Flags Over Texas was waiting for us the next day!

 

BUT, when we arrived at our hotel, it was first time to the traditional TPR snack exchange where all the trip participants brought snacks from where they live! That being said, it was VERY multicultural! Hanging out with all the people and eating some snacks from all over the world was AWESOME!
