I wouldn't go that far. but it was a fun woodie, and WAY less horrific in the front than it was a year ago mid train.

I still would ride anything in the park over it, if given a choice (yes, even Corkscrew) :p

Great shots from where the stadium used to be, Bert! They've made it such an open area, for now.
Almost "green park space," which is what a large chunk of the PNE was turned into.

Ah, I definitely missed the "wooded area" of the park. And the bar in there too, lol. :wink:

Great stuff, Bert, all of it. And YAY, more rides on Cedar Downs for ya! :airtime:

P.S. Hope some (if not all) of the crappy physical pain/hurt has started to heal up, etc.

thanks Bill.

oh yeah, I'm back to 100%, it took about 6 weeks but fully healed! That was my own fault, really..I'm who decided to get on things with ejector air back to back already knowing I was hurting. Should have taken a more relaxing day, riding stuff that wouldn't impact me and save the heavy lifting for the end of the day.

I also took a tumble towards the very end of the day at Knoebels the night before.
It didn't hurt (tho I know Alex saw it, and it must have looked bad based on his reaction, as he was concerned if I was OK).
Now that also could have caused some damage that I just didn't feel at the time and helped exacerbate the bruised quad the next day. . but again,that was ME being clumsy :)

regardless, I had a wonderful time, and hope I get the chance to do another TPR trip again in the future!

Just throwing this out there...I was the weirdo that said hi to you at the Maverick station and said I recognized you from TPR, even tho I was a total lurker. I ended up running into a big TPR group with Robb inside Breakers late one night as well. I've always liked checking out your trip reports, so thanks for the somewhat anonymous online entertainment! ;)

The ferris wheel one is really nice, Bert.
I would have bought that one, too. :smile:


EDIT:......and that magnet, too.

Thanks, Andy.

I really did have a wonderful time, and really enjoyed meeting so many TPR folks, yourself included.

I also want to say what a great trip report! I was able to share many of your photos with my family and friends. Thanks for taking the time to put together such an extensive (and awesome) report! It was nice meeting you and going on so many rides!

Take Care, Paul
