Shawn - thanks but I'm going to hold out for a better picture of the ride.

It's a swinging banana, how could no one from TPR have a picture of a swinging banana.

To all you perverts that are snickering right now, I'm talking about ride.

^No problem Larry. I think it gets missed a lot because it is so hidden back there. Hopefully someone else gets a good picture of it for you.

The focus is now going to be on obtaining ride photos for rides that are missing in the index. If the Park Index is lacking a ride sign, we would still like it, but the focus for now is on a more complete ride list.

In the past couple of weeks hundreds of photos have been added for rides that not previously been in the Park Index. Hopefully, this is helpful for everyone in researching for this year's travels.

Below is a list of rides that are known to be missing in the Park Index, if you have photos feel free to submit them, or if the ride is still on the list when you travel to the park feel free to take a picture and submit it.

The best way to submit a ride photo through the Park Index link:
Within the TPR Park Index there is a link at the bottom of each page that says: Click here to contribute your trip report or ride photos to Theme Park Review

Or is you want to download a photo into this thread that is fine also.

Remember photos must be .jpg should not exceed 800x600 (Unfortunately, many people have submitted photos that are too large for TPR to use or in pdf form.)

High quality photos (not blurry, distorted or out of focus).

Lastly, we are not adding kiddie rides or major upcharges at this time, but we are at the point where family rides such: transportation rides, carousels, ferris wheels and bumper cars are being added.

And if you have to ability to scan your park maps, feel free to submit those for the years that all not already in the Park Index. Hundreds have been downloaded over the past 3 weeks.

Of course any PTRs containing superior photos or entertaining captions and a variety of pictures including multiple rides and areas. (Not just one or two rides/attractions) are always valued. Attention has been given to every previously submitted Photo TR, also and don't feel discouraged if we can't include every one.

PTRs should be downloaded onto the Theme Park Review server (not Imageshack, photobucket) that way we know a Red X will never appear to be added to the Park Index.

So here is a list of what we know we needed, if you have photos of a different ride that is not in TPR's Park Index, please submit that also.

Here's what you're missing from Michigan's Adventure and Cedar Point.

If you need any other pictures from Michigan's Adventure, let me know, I have over 6,000 photos from 1983-2009. These are just the ones I thought were good for the index.

Time Warp at SFNE didn't have a ride sign. It was just there and people knew where the entrance was. It was a great ride and will be missed.

^ When I was at SFA over the summer, I didn't notice ride signs for ANY of the ones you have listed. A large amount of the rides there are only named in the park maps, but don't actually have physical signs.

Thanks for the quick response so far to those that sent in pictures in this thread and through the Park Index. About 30 new photos of 15 different rides have been added with your help.

Well, I just looked through my stock of Carowinds pictures and I do have 1 picture of Rip Roarin' Rapids. I don't have any for White Water Falls, or a picture of Rapids' sign, but I'll be sure to get a couple of pictures when I can.
