Welcome to Day 3 at the Point! This is a very sad day, because this is the last day of the TPR trip and the last day at the Point( ), BUT I will keep on posting updates of my private after trip, so be prepared for some more Marcelicious adventures!

 

The last day at the point was as AWESOME as all the other days at Cedar Point, so this update will most likely consist of only some photos, because I'm pretty sure you know how the Point in general looks like now etc.!

 

That's why I would love to write some more private words and summarize my feelings and experiences about the whole trip so far, kind of like toast

 

So, first of all I would like to let you know that my first ever TPR trip was AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME! I mean I did a lot of private trips in Europe etc, but those trips were friends trips and we had a BLAST on those trips for sure, but this trip now was a REAL group trip and I have to say, that it was the best trip I've ever experienced so far! Riding roller coasters with so MANY coaster geeks is so much FUN! It was really one of those 'time of my life' experiences, NO kidding! With that being said, I would love to thank you Robb&Elissa for organizing all that good stuff, letting us coaster geeks ride the kiddies with your daughter Kristen (THANKS KRISTEN! I hope you will ride many more coasters with us!), and having a WONDERFUL time! *Where is the applause button*??? Furthermore I would love to thank all the other coaster friends who made my trip so fabulous! It was SO nice to meet you all and I really loved hanging out with you! I now have so many REAL friendships all over the world just because of sharing the same passion: RIDING COASTERS! That's one of the many reasons why I LOVE my hobby! It connects so many people and so many different characters! That's really EPIC!

 

That being said, enjoy your last day at the Point and keep on reading my trip report!

Arms down, head back and hold on tight!

Hey guys! I'm back! New day, new report! It was time to say goodbye to TPR and Cedar Point and start the private after trip! Douglas was so kind to take Werner and me back to his home town Buffalo where we picked up our rental car for the trip! Since Waldameer and Conneaut Lake were on our route, we stopped at those parks and did some credit run there! Thank you very much Doug for doing that shuttle service! We appreciated it a lot! BTW: Kevin joined us as well for the drive back to Buffalo!

 

Conneaut Lake wasn't the nicest place I've been to, but there was a credit So no time to cry and no more words about the park

 

The next stop was Waldameer with its AMAZING Ravine Flyer II! I liked that park very much, because its atmosphere was really nice! Not that kind of busy, crowded atmosphere like it was at Cedar Point. It was really kind of old school! I love those ''nostalgic American parks' because you don't find them here in Germany. IMO, the atmosphere is really American at all the little parks in the states!

We met Colin at the park! It was a nice little surprise to see him there after he did the TPR trip as well

 

After some hours at the park, it was time to leave and drive to Buffalo! Our rental car was waiting for us! As always...Enjoy your ride and my photos

One of the crappiest and scariest places I've been to! Could be a house in a horror movie!

Sorry for the delayed updates, guys! University started again, so I kinda got busy! Nevertheless, my report about my US trip continues!

 

This time, it's Darien Lake and Seabreeze I'm reporting about! Werner and me went to Darien Lake in the morning and somewhen during afternoon we left for Seabreeze! It's definitely doable to do those parks in one day. We didn't have any problems though.

 

Darien Lake was definitely NOT the best park on the after trip I didn't like its coasters, so I was happy when we got all the credits... I'm sure this park only knows one train operations, but Q's were not too bad Since Moto Coaster had some issues and Predator opened at 1:30 pm, we had to wait to get all those credits.

 

After that little credit run, we decided to leave for the much nicer park Seabreeze! I loved that little park. As I've already explained in one of my other trip updates, I really LOVE those nice little American parks. The atmosphere is just amazing Unfortunately, no kid wanted to ride the kiddy coaster with me (They wanted to ride ALONE, without any adult!), I didn't get that credit (I didn't get the kiddy at Darien Lake neither!).

 

I loved the ''Bobsled'' coaster! It was really fun The park had two more coasters, the woodie (really rideable!) and the spinning coaster (meh...). After our stay at Seabreeze, we had to go on the road again, because we had to go on a multiple hour drive to Canada! Oh Canada

 

With that being said, have FUN watching my photos!

Are you ready to get your mind erased?

OMG. What am I doing?

IMG_7948.thumb.jpg.c30c50617bd43679cb2f318bd6a6216e.jpg

Oh man, this looks like PAIN!

IMG_7954.thumb.jpg.72e4ca73296f2c36c807557cfe680228.jpg

And that park doesn't seem to have a coaster that does NOT try to kill you...

IMG_7963.thumb.jpg.84ad69ade1e01d3ce1e607b446b74e8b.jpg

Oh man, look at that CRAZY Arrow element!

It's time for some more Cedar Fair goodness, because the day after having crossed the border, Werner and I went to Canada's Wonderland! (Oh Canada ) Yup, we wanted to explore CANADA!

 

Crossing the border was not a big issue, but the GPS became a BIG one Since Werner bought a GPS (valid for the US AND Canada) and he was told that it worked in Canada, we found out that it didn't work in Canada That's why we bought an old school map and the MPS (the Marcelicious Positioning System lol) made us find our hotel for the next 2 nights!

 

Canada's Wonderland was fun and I had the impression that it was not that kind of typical Cedar Fair Park like Cedar Point! I mean it was busy etc, but it was not that stressful and loud as Cedar Point (IMO). It was different. Nevertheless we had to get some credits (NOT the kiddy coaster )!. That's why we pre ordered Fast Lane PLUS! Without Fast Lane Plus we would not have gotten all the credits! Definitely worth it!

Leviathan is definitely a FUN coaster (it looks faster than it is!) and Behemoth as well, BUT Shambhala in Spain is better

 

We met Carmine (who also did the Texas/Midwest trip), so we spent the day together! (Thanks for the souvenir discount!) Canada's Wonderland sold almost ALL their hoodies, because it suddenly became really windy! We just needed a hoodie so we decided to buy one! Many others did the same They made a lot of money that day I think!

 

With that being said...enjoy your ride! Next update will be from TORONTO!

^It was definitely a challenge! I was surprised that it hasn't been that difficult as I've expected it to be! Just search the place where you want to go and see which roads are going there I'm happy we found all the places where we wanted to go! And we conquered the Toronto City jungle

Being at university can be VERY boring! Why not doing another trip update?

 

It's time for some sightseeing! No coasters, no thrills, no parks. Only sightseeing! Those were our plans for TORONTO!

 

After we conquered the Toronto traffic jungle (Thanks to MPS ), we started exploring the city! We did some typical things like the CN Tower (I didn't like it too much, it was way too crowded!) or Toronto's Eaton Center (BIG shopping mall). It was a relaxing day! Not too much stress! Just relaxing and walking around! All that good stuff you do when being downtown!

 

I rather show you some photos than explaining all the stuff we did in that city. I don't want to bother you with too many information

 

Are you ready to conquer Toronto? If yes, go ahead! If not and you would like to know all that historical stuff about the city, leave the TR and get some more information about Canada and come back!

 

See ya guys!
