Hey! We don't look too bad in those photos. Now if there had been a video of the three of us climbing in and out of those darn logs that would be a different story, lol.

The helix never bothered me and I don't usually get beat up by the roughness of coasters, more an issue with motion sickness if I don't prepare ahead of time. However, I did have bruises on my thighs from the last time I rode Magnum, need to learn the right technique for that one.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This park has such a great woodie collection. My personal favorite is Screamin' Eagle, but they're all great rides.

I didn't find the Boss rough. If anything, I wish the mid-course trim was off to experience a wilder second half. :lol: However, I understand why they don't do that.

Don’t remember exactly who (sorry to whoever it was but thanks for the pics EDIT: that would be Danrarbc), but someone had posted a pic wondering what the spot lights outside Colossus were for, since the ride already has a lighting package. Well, here is what that was for:

Quite the blue-tiful sight, don’t ya think?


Also, the Boss not being renamed and SFNE having to pay up on their end of the deal (followed by SFDK having to make good on their bet too) is one of the best parts of the Blues win, in my opinion. With a country who loves a good underdog story, even the company behind the universally-popular Skycoaster brand extended their congratulations, albeit in their own appropriate way:

To be completely honest, I’d have to say that out of the arches in St. Louis, mine are still probably the Golden Arches. (I’m a sucker for an Oreo McFlurry)

^welcome back to the forums! Stay a while. The blue lights are really cool. I wish they'd regularly do more with lighting in reference to the ferris wheel.

lol @ the golden arches.

Kim, use coasterbill's seatbelt trick. Emily and I sat in the front car of a middle row. I ratcheted the seatbelt down as tight as I possibly could and the ride was actually really enjoyable. That was the first time I've ever had fun on it.

They actually colored the fountains Blue on Sunday too (the night of playoff game 6). . .we didn't know why until later when someone told us that was why (maybe Kim)?

but we posed by it for our pic, because I thought it was pretty, so brought the photog over to it for the pic.

LOL

Oh that's cool. Worlds of Fun had a blue fountain when the Royals won a few years back. Nice way to celebrate.

Yep, that was me that told you why it was blue! They also dye it red in October for FF which doubles nicely if the Cardinals are in the playoffs. Although sometimes it comes out a little more pinkish than red.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

the Texas Parks all switched to the Ipad photo at the gates, but here? still scanning fingers.
and when I commented that I was surprised they are still using fingerprint, the lady at the gate looked super confused --


SFGAm has stopped using the finger scanners as well, and were taking photos of everyone entering when i was there a few weeks ago.

Paint work on Xcalibur started earlier this week. Work on the gondolas is beginning to wrap up and they should be ready to go back on soon.
