The amazing (real time-ish) adventures of jarmor!


Recommended Posts

Sounds like you had a fun time! You really took advantage of the Single Rider line for RSR, which is usually what I do if I don't arrive early enough for a fastpass. Glad you liked the ride though! I think the bread tour is closed now, and I'm not too sure what they are doing with it. I can't tell if it's being refurbished or removed. Oh well. I usually only do it for the sample anyway. You were lucky to catch Midway Mania with such a short line, because that ride is always a fun one

Ok so its 2015...January 2015 and most parks are closed but that doesn't stop us from visiting. This year, for obvious reasons, carowinds hosted ACE southeast winter warm up. Its an event where lots of parks come together and put on presentations for what they are showcasing that year as well as nostalgia highlights. Its a great way to get personal with the parks and their reps. I figured this shirt would be most appropriate for the day...

We entered near thunder road...

IMG-20150117-01969.thumb.jpg.f01ceb8efa9fc0656f75634f43650fff.jpg

 

Such a classic, would hate to see it go. Thank god there has never been any rumors of its departure. Ahhhh...top gun.

It felt god driving around the lot, looking at these giants in hibernation.

Pretty much all the rides are dismantled in the offseason...

Parks like holiday world, fiesta texas, dollywood, kings dominion and six flags over georgia had presentations. Lots gave free stuff but dollywood and fiesta texas gave everyone free admission! Carowinds GM mike fennel had a special presentation...

Now it was time for lunch! The food featured that day will be featured st the taste of the Carolinas food event. The food was great! I'll just let the pictures do the talking.

Can't wait to see what the bridge will look like! Lol...

I have a feeling this element will be a crowd pleaser!

Since I was one of the only seasoned riders out there, the travel channel decided to give me a shot! Basically they need a ratings boost...

IMG_20150118_00184927.jpg.f19edb28c12f99f7c076c478a13bcc85.jpg

 

This year, the park is getting a flatter and wider bridge...

^ fury colors are pretty badass lol. I couldn't resist!

 

So a week after the tour I was having roller coaster anxiety after being around all those coasters and couldn't ride...so I headed down to busch gardens!

I could tell by the waits it was gonna be a long day...

One of my first coaster friend recent passed away. He loved montu, hence his online name of montumax. I'm gonna miss him...

That's one good tower...

Clocking in at the longest wait of the day. It was actually longer thanks to the latin tour groups who move in hurts like its the walking dead lol...

Tampa-20150129-02147.thumb.jpg.1f56540ff08794945ea39edc52a72e71.jpg

 

Since I've experience my fair share of kumba, I decided to pass and head back to the front. Wish I could Mitch a ride on cheetah hunt!

Tampa-20150129-02151.thumb.jpg.2400fbdbb7f5cb8fa5076044049b4b56.jpg

 

But first...let's become one with nature...

Tampa-20150129-02158.thumb.jpg.09ea51b20520def7bd3601037d0ba6f5.jpg

 

Ok I must confess...the real reason I'm here is to big farewell to gwazi. Its not too often you can say goodbye to a coaster so I didn't hesitate to come down for one last ride.

The market place is a nice touch as well. A big improvement over the game stalls...

I was honored to participate in an effort to raise money to leave a front row seat empty on the first train out in memory of a dear coaster friend, max cannon, who passed away. He was exctied and anticipating his first ride on fury 325.

Man! What a ride. I'm not sure how season or unseason I am (is there some type of sorting hat for that lol lol) but fury 325 was great! Relentless speed, great airtime and just plain ole fun!

After a few more rides, it was time for me to go eat. The park showcased a good bit of what the would be having at the taste of the carolinas accompanied bt a great band.

Mableton-20150523-02839.thumb.jpg.c36a9377ce81fe534d63bced9db88f96.jpg

Mableton-20150523-02837.thumb.jpg.f9a3e8154a06a7a16e64bc7f13a11b43.jpg

 

What a cute little train...well, car.

Atlanta-20150523-02838.thumb.jpg.93dc821ea8e5f73df530a8e4d106739d.jpg

 

It was ok...no mystery mine, but a nice family coaster.

Mableton-20150523-02841.thumb.jpg.2a0466d232724556254aec654a11ce2f.jpg

 

I guess six flags anticipated huge crowds for its new " coaster" since they set up a queue all the way up the hill to the entrance of gotham city...

Mableton-20150523-02843.thumb.jpg.a4ba47263a2aba82a1e4b77dc0d1ffa4.jpg

 

Anyway...I'm here for backwards batman!

Man...these lines...

Atlanta-20150523-02850.thumb.jpg.1e099ffb595fd9634eed95225d822865.jpg

 

I'm a little nervous about doing this bat-wards hahaha...

Atlanta-20150523-02851.thumb.jpg.32b113e280bebd95927ba61524106adf.jpg

 

Pretty intense but not too bad...

Mableton-20150523-02858.thumb.jpg.26d53af76e4e4b18c05bc041f6c0146e.jpg

Man...these lines are overwhelming.

Atlanta-20150523-02864.thumb.jpg.0cd1384d1bda6cf85d5e983cd61f85af.jpg

 

Its amazing how a coaster so old can still remain relevant...

The line for goliath started just at the stairs...

Mableton-20150523-02872.thumb.jpg.5d1d09a527fbdea0837a82c9f0cefa0e.jpg

 

Would have been just in the station if they weren't assigning seats...

Mableton-20150523-02874.thumb.jpg.b73ae19846c6eb88924bce8f50861317.jpg

 

Solid ride. Of course I'm spoiled by fury 325 but still, a great ride!

Atlanta-20150523-02875.thumb.jpg.45ddea68df5d10b1aaef5e0c55b4d708.jpg

 

Gotta love these crowds...

Speaking of fright...think I'm passing this one up lol...

Mableton-20150523-02881.thumb.jpg.26620fb452afd4683ec55f30024b85a7.jpg

 

I'm seeing a pattern here...

Atlanta-20150523-02882.thumb.jpg.4240d81b86d36ba80e3e10ad60092fda.jpg

 

Something new! A water park!!

IMG-20150523-02883.thumb.jpg.f74f8c0ed9e0f16a348d80f167339a3a.jpg

 

Well...its kinda bare but looks like fun for the kids.

Mableton-20150523-02884.thumb.jpg.477758b275241a87d5df2781d1030848.jpg

 

The only multi slide tower...

Mableton-20150523-02886.thumb.jpg.979394a890f3698061db07957223aea6.jpg

 

Then you have this pool and family slide (I think its a family one...)

I just have the best of luck! Even today at six flags america, everything is basically a walk on!

 

Ok, so I left my season pass at home and this is what guest services gave me to get in lol . . .

Needless to say, that didnt work. Then I was given this . . .

This line seemed like it took forever. I guess its the first thing people see.

Kinda rough, but isn't that how woodies suppose to be?

It looks great but one ride was more than enough.

It may be one of the older ones but that launch still packs a punch!

I wonder why more of these weren't built?

In case you're wondering, that's airtime . . .

They look happy. Maybe something changed.

Moving right along . . . I've never stepped into hurricane harbor but since I was done with the park I figured I might as well.

**personal talk** I have a god son whom I introduced to the theme park life at when he was about 3 and from then on he loved it! From then on I created a coaster junkie like myself. He moved away but now he's back so we can go ride coasters! Yesterday, well sept 25th, I took him to SCarowinds. On the way back I asked him if he was game to head to Six Flags over Georgia early in the morning. Of course he said yes! So we headed out.

The topper track really does help out the experience in the first half. Wonder if the rest is going to receive it?

I always thought the placement of the Chutes the chute ride was pretty nice here.

The slight rain really kept the crowds away.

Mableton-20150926-03828.thumb.jpg.9ba5bf9b77a31afbdd1239fd0f9d7801.jpg

 

Now the moment I was dreading would come up . . . he saw ninja and wanted to ride. He has no idea what he is in store for . . .

Mableton-20150926-03834.thumb.jpg.ff272512c954655455f5c60a4aab0255.jpg

 

I REALLY did not want to ride but I figured what the hell.

Mableton-20150926-03835.thumb.jpg.9cd75e45baeca8e4f6f4382ebab355ed.jpg

 

He liked it so much he wanted to go again!

Mableton-20150926-03841.thumb.jpg.f46bb39f9671521fa3ea22f500a549c2.jpg

 

Heading to Gotham City, he freaked out because he is a big batman fan!

Mableton-20150926-03842.thumb.jpg.e0fca189c3a71dfa9881ffcd390a184a.jpg

 

After a few more rides, the rain started coming down so it was time to go! @ theme park, two states, all within 24 hours. Needless to say I was tired!

so . . . Last night I began my #EpicHalloweenAdventure! What's that you ask??? Well, in 4 nights, back to back, I attend 4 of the nations most highly regarded theme park haunts from the east to the west coast. Every night a different park and city. Its pretty exciting and tiresome at the same time! Last night my first stop was Howl-O-Scream at busch gardens tampa! Due to the flooding in south carolina my amtrak transportation was canceled so I had to find another way down and got to the park a little late.

Tampa-20151008-03878.thumb.jpg.2af8e90070e459a8d82711294cb5d8a4.jpg

 

Let me rephrase that, I got to the fright feast a little late lol. But it was still plenty to eat!

Tampa-20151008-03882.thumb.jpg.a025219b6204b7329249821446530773.jpg

 

I do have to say, the food selection isn't as good as years past. And no pumpkin cheesecake was not a good thing!!! After eating and stomaching that fiends show (I think this year is the worst I've seen) I decided to take a trip on falcons fury!

Tampa-20151008-03884.thumb.jpg.19deb76c2258c87250d3bad2c2e33894.jpg

 

It seems kinda slower then most but it is def the scariest of them all! Now, let's head to the first maze!

Tampa-20151008-03885.thumb.jpg.f10fdbeedc9fc74fcdfb63b63e2b27a3.jpg

 

I went they most of this house alone and it was quite anxiety inducing. This has to be my fav here as the theme of death is one that is unnerving to me. Lots of cool scares! Next up . . .

Tampa-20151008-03887.thumb.jpg.2f5d8198b5f299deef7ddcc9785fa50e.jpg

 

Solid house. Loved the bungee scares! Let's move on to the only new house this year . . .

Tampa-20151008-03888.thumb.jpg.382e31de5fb2adf3226d9efb855f4c3e.jpg

 

Never thought I'd be walking thru gwazi again . . .this soon.

Tampa-20151008-03889.thumb.jpg.08d9b5380bc2baa5172db814965d392e.jpg

 

I didn't understand what the hell was going on in that house lol. Lots of animal carcasses, mutated babies . . . Ok. Moving right along.

Tampa-20151008-03890.thumb.jpg.a99e0a7f67d0aefe527ba7bc47cd5c04.jpg

 

I really do hope this is the last laff as this house has gotten old, well to me at least.

Tampa-20151008-03892.thumb.jpg.913040b39e52e592c3192b5111038575.jpg

 

Did the other two house now let's get some rides in!

Tampa-20151008-03904.thumb.jpg.079a9567640758af2a50b6fcdf3ff834.jpg

 

Now that's my kinda line. But . . . Kumba seems to be a little rougher than normal. Still a good ride. Let's head to sheikra. Ut first. We gotta dance our way thru this dance party lol.

Tampa-20151008-03908.thumb.jpg.cdfd1dd888bb5f17acfa7d31b87605f4.jpg

 

Fortunately I was able to twerk, whip and nae nae my way thru the crowd and up the stairs to be greeted by this!

Tampa-20151008-03910.thumb.jpg.18a046ea07b2c3d15295586bc40472e2.jpg

 

To my surprise, they removed the scoops! Caused you to enter the hill and turn with more force. Well there you have it. The first stop on my #EpicHalloweenAdventure! Its pretty obvious where the next stop is . . .
