Understood and apologies i did see the price estimate but wanted to double check which relates to which tour. Bit of chicken or the egg scenario as i wouldn't submit an application if i knew we couldn't afford the price.
Can't sadly, have the time but not the money, and though I will probably have the money in a few months wont have the time...the classic dilemma. Though it would be one helluva great experience! Maybe next year. I know in the past you opened up a couple of the parks to others for a single day thing (I went on the Knoebels day of the East tour a few years ago) any idea if such a thing would happen again?
Unrelated, any word on possible WCB again?
Good luck and I hope indeed people don't blow the chance. After so many years of griping "TPR doesnt do public tours anymore!" now's a chance, so they better not ruin for themselves again

Ape has said pretty much everything I could say about this. My wife, kids and I would love to join, ESPECIALLY the Japan trip as none of us have ever been but have been dreaming about it for years... but right now isn't the best time either financially or with our youngest. I hope both of these trips go well for you, Robb, and that nothing happens to discourage you from doing it again in the future.

This creates a crazy amount of work and hassle for us and it's just not something we will do anymore. Sorry, this is the entire tour or nothing.

I am very happy to see that you guys are opening up a few spots on your tours. I really hope no one f**ks it up. I've always been interested in joining one of these, but I still do not have the income to join this year. Hoping next year or the year after I will, and if you are still opening up spaces on a tour, I would definitely be interested!
Hope you find respectful, responsible people to join this year's tours, and I look forward to seeing the pictures!

I would love to be able to do a huge tour with TPR, but my work schedule doesn’t allow me to be able to take off that much time. However it would be cool to meet up with y’all at Carowinds during your trip, my son and I had a blast with y’all at Kings Island during Banshee Bash...
