The Official "TPR 2006 UK Tour" Thread!


Recommended Posts

Okay. If I ever see you posting about bad theming or ugly surroundings, I'll be sure to point it out, because last time I checked scenery was part of the entire experience, and a fairly large part as well.

 

be my guest, if I think a coaster has good surrounding or bad i'll make a point of it

You know...if you're going to be pissed at us because there are no updates, we'll just simply post them in the UK Tour Members Only forum.

 

But if you're actually going to appreciate the hard work we put into doing the updates (I haven't been to bed before 3am yet this trip) we'll continue to post them for the public, too.

 

There will be an update going up tonight from Oakwood.

 

Please be patient.

 

Also, can we please keep this thread to talking about the trip or asking questions about what we're doing etc. I really don't need to sign onto the board after a day thinking "Hey, let's see what everyone thinks of the updates" and instead seeing people bickering about stupid crap.

Robb, don't worry about pleasing a couple of kids who get demanding. Updates are nice, but I don't expect them every day while you are still *on* the vacation! Enjoy yourselves and have fun, and if that means waiting until you get home to post some updates, so be it. The fanboys will survive.

I do find it a bit strange though that no one else that's currently on the trip is contributing much to this thread. I thought people would jump on now and then and post bits about their days. Guess they are too worn out to worry about the internet!

More coming...

Is this an acceptable level of wetness?

14-wetslide.jpg.92baa2d448e7b7577a9b81c037c7b377.jpg

This is the wet/dry slide. There's nothing dry about them though

13-danapproved.jpg.aafa0e15b629c12c041ab5a2bfb76fb8.jpg

He didn't get very wet. Let's ride the wet/dry slides then

12-waterride.jpg.c01da2d479a0461b1d362b2b595fe2d1.jpg

This is the water ride we got Dan onto. It doesn't get you very wet though

11-wetness.thumb.jpg.03e7ad7e3b9e0e319c54eabfd076218f.jpg

Gimme some beer! You will have to see the videos for this

10-mouse.jpg.7c7dbc1d5d242746a58febf47ace2756.jpg

It's a fun wild mouse type ride

The cars on the Jungle Coaster are impressive

Cha-ching!

Legoland has a castle, and it's bigger than Disneyland's of course

04-legoland.jpg.7ef3307dbc78aacdc0c4a0d07aee9dea.jpg

This is the park entrance

03-cinnabun.thumb.jpg.2a95c97d733e0a6549632d7ef1492aee.jpg

At Legoland we stop for some high quality American food

02-buslane.thumb.jpg.45e906d0c2a9132acc0b597501b7be26.jpg

Since we're in the coach, we get to use the super duper l337 bus lane

01-barry.jpg.f02409b0a16c63ea8ad335cd2be8dd74.jpg

With the push of a button, Nigel shuts Barry up

Hey, have a great time! I am so jealous, but then again, you have to put up with Tommy and James (mostly Tommy!!)

 

I went to Dollywood yesterday, and Timber Tower is indeed closed awaiting a one of a kind part from Germany. Good thing they don't have pictures of the ride EVERYWHERE...or wait, they do!

 

Still had fun as evidenced by the attached pics! Next week: PKD!

Day 1: Chessington

30-coaches.jpg.20e779ce7afd5519b4c6e4dd6a17d46c.jpg

I'm suprised Robb didn't go for this coach company

29-tony2.jpg.b1d41f32a188996093c4514d4dd689ad.jpg

The management won't notice the difference

28-tony1.jpg.ceb45079cc6888c1e36245d1d8a359cc.jpg

Tony broke the theming!

27-bigrodents2.jpg.cde2ced18ebd82707e7e0ef8a55efb7c.jpg

They're so cute!

The capybara is the 'world's largest rodent'

...with lots of snakes (who like to eat rodents)

23-creepycaves.thumb.jpg.0443c391970962a922f4d5b7dfee6f0b.jpg

The 'Creepy Caves' is a walk-through attraction

He's still kind of sad and pathetic

Cool shot of the Top Spin

21e-tombblasters.jpg.262e0c226fca573ed1f8cbd5df13d592.jpg

Tomb Blasters is a shooting dark ride like MIB, but instead of shooting aliens, riders shoot little coloured lights

21d-overview.jpg.6f1bd36698f07cda91d920e6b167af71.jpg

Another shot of my #50

21a-welcometpr.jpg.670b8d1f6f3afb8c242a38c22662ebe4.jpg

I suspect that the guy at the control panel on the flume is a fan of a site. Keep up the good work

20-mcdees2.jpg.29e2a2a5b0225366baa145fcd46ed0a1.jpg

This is Elissa's favorite part of Chessington (besides the World's Largest Rodents)

19-ronald.jpg.08917706a8fc92fad28860c6238f49b2.jpg

What's up with this?

17-bwloading.jpg.4c72e68de4c12bf1e245b359b14ac962.jpg

Bubbleworks was a fun dark ride (Jeff Johnson counts it as a credit)

15-donuts.jpg.3fed4488ba3fc6d54803c1566aaeb154.jpg

Time for more quality American style food

13-number50.jpg.3586a5ff808c7b2049ee93d6130a9d19.jpg

Yay! I finally hit my #50 credit. I was hoping it would be MegaB litz, but this will do.

10-reverse.jpg.78567aba229832eacf9cf99d324ef82a.jpg

Barry emerged from the luggage compartment armed with his video camera

03-vekoma.jpg.406ecb3cccd58b4e26ce85e9e1ade97b.jpg

The death slide is actually six credits

09-deathslide.jpg.56ec17073a47d48b9ed3fe7a128379db.jpg

Coney Beach is a very well maintained park. Be sure to ask Robb about the park's safety certifications

07-survive.jpg.787568893b3933425727dfb715fa9d05.jpg

Look at the cute credit whores
