Showing up as white as your mind!

If you read what Robb wrote you would know that they are coming tomorrow!!

Anyway, Chessington photos are up now, and Coney Beach photos and video are coming tomorrow!

Reading does a mind good!!

 

 

Looks like you all are having a splendid time TPR style!!! Pip pip and cherrio to all you blokes and lasses having a bit of fun there in jolly ol England!!

 

Wow, I totally missed that, because I don't remember that at all. I guess I expected there to be something just because a link was posted at the end of the Chessington series to "the next page."

 

EDIT: Ah, now it's showing up as a standard TPR page w/o any pictures, but it has the "this page has not been updated yet" message, which is a lot clearer. Maybe it was my browser yesterday as well, because this makes a lot more sense than a white screen. With this, it's obvious that Robb's set up the pages beforehand so that all he needs to do is upload the pics and captions when he updates, thus reducing time a lot.

Coney Beach photos are up!!!

http://www.themeparkreview.com/uk2006/coneybeach/coneybeach1.htm

 

This was an "interesting" stop because it was not part of the official itinerary. It was a "bonus" park. I have been here several times before as it is on the way to Oakwood and for some reason I'm always with people who needed the credits, and this time I was with 52 other people who needed them!

 

Coney Beach is, how do you say, a "rustic" seaside park. It's got it quirks, and it has quite a few of them! Needless to say I'm sure this park will weild it's fair share of memorable moments on the trip!

 

We actually managed to break the kiddie coaster! Well, sort of. They had this little tiny powered coaster...and I'm mean *LITTLE*, even Elissa had to squeeze in, and when we asked if adults could ride, they said SURE!!!! (This is not the kind of place that is going to turn away money)

 

The rest of the story is posted in the update. You won't want to miss this one!

 

Anyway, onto a few photos.....

 

Coney Beach - A "rustic" seaside park! (that should be in their brochure)

 

This was a "bonus" park of the trip and everyone appreciated getting the "Pinfari Death Machine" credit.

 

Our sad and pathetic group is really have a great time getting BONUS CREDITS!!!

 

Here is the kiddie coaster that we "broke" sort of....read the update to see the rest of the story!

 

The "slides of death" at Coney Beach were pretty awesome. There were no rules so as long as you paid your money, you could ride forwards, backwards, laying down, etc.

 

On the way to Oakwood, Dan takes over as the coach driver. No one in the UK is safe!!!

 

And to end this little mini-update, we leave you with a disturbing mental image....Barry was the first to use the on-board toilet!!!

 

Enjoy today's installment!

Barry christened the toilet! Nice job! But yeah nice update and whatnot, but for some reason like 3 or 4 pictures arn't coming up for me. And one more thing, was the wobbley willy as great as Lou expected? Or was she let down after finishing it?

I have Java installed and the same thing with some of the pics not showing up on page 2 and 3!!

 

 

Oh ya I distinctly remember Lou saying she wasn't gona rump anyone on the trip right!! But she didn't say anything about a wobbly willy!!! I saw that smile on her face in that picture! You can tell she is thinking "oh I sure can't wait to get alone with wobbly willy tonite"

 

Robb you should set up a hidden cam in Lou's room so we all can have a LOU'S ROOM CAM!!!

 

I would say set up a Derek and Nicole cam but we all know what is going on there!! Besides that wouldn't be true british high class porn!!

ROFL. No wonder Tommy and James came!

 

Nice update! And glad I'm not the only one having a problem with those few nonworking pics.

So you all enjoying the UK?! You came at a great time, the weather has been hotter here than it has been for a long long time. Do you have any exact dates for when you are going to various parks? I will be at Alton Towers on the 29th...

 

Never been to chessington but it looks great fun, I also live in wales and have never visited that "park"! Still, theres time...

 

I was going to join you on this trip, but none of my parents were up for it. Is there anybody there who is under 17?

Anyway, enjoy your time in sunny sunny england - and robb - flumps are marshmellows!!

Yeah the weather has decided to be sunny for once which makes a change. Hope you lot have a great time.

By the way, enjoy Alton Towers, i'd go there if it wasn't a £30 entrance fee. Total rip off if you ask me.

 

In a few years it wouldn't surprise me seeing Alton Towers closing down. I have already heard loads of people who have stopped going.

I'm guessing by the front page with the Photo updates that they are at Alton Today. Drayton manor Tommorow or Wednesday. Depends how many days they have at Alton.
