Thanks again everyone for your replies!

I know I promised the next report would be part 2 of my Hollywood Studios photos, but I figured X Flight pictures were a bit more important :b

So lets take a look at X Flight, and some other changes from 2012 at Six Flags Great America!
IMG_2062.JPG
The Go Karts got a new station this year. Combined with the new coaster as a backdrop, the area looks quite a bit nicer.
IMG_2063.JPG
IMG_2064.JPG
Iron Wolf's replacement sucks just as bad :P
IMG_2067.JPG
Now back to X Flight. It looks awesome.
IMG_2070.JPG
Eagle provides a nice backdrop.
IMG_2073.JPG
The ride is very twisty.
IMG_2075.JPG
This will be a signature shot once it opens, I'm sure!
IMG_2077.JPG
IMG_2078.JPG
The drop is HUGE.

IMG_2086.JPG
Another new thing for this year is the Whizzer! Well, the sign got painted. Looks good!
IMG_2087.JPG
East River Crawler was temporarily removed for the season, and replaced with an old ride from Bugs Bunny National Park.
IMG_2088.JPG
Looks out of place.
IMG_2090.JPG
The Antique Cars are still here.
IMG_2094.JPG
Now time for a bombardment of X Flight testing photos!
IMG_2106.JPG
IMG_2108.JPG
The ride is VERY quiet.
IMG_2109.JPG
There are so many angles to view the ride, since it is so close to the midway.
IMG_2110.JPG
IMG_2111.JPG
IMG_2112.JPG
LOTS of mist shoots out from here.
IMG_2113.JPG
IMG_2114.JPG
IMG_2115.JPG
Signature shot!
IMG_2116.JPG
This will be my view in 6 days!
IMG_2117.JPG
IMG_2119.JPG
IMG_2120.JPG
IMG_2121.JPG
Turned out blurry, but I still think it looks cool.
IMG_2122.JPG
My favorite picture from the day.
IMG_2123.JPG
IMG_2124.JPG
Enjoy your last days as the most popular ride in the park, Bull.
Alright, thats all for now. Tell me what you think of the photos! Thanks for reading! We will return to our regularly scheduled Hollywood Studios report shortly!

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

I'll hopefully be taking in some of those views of the park and X-Flight this summer. It's been awhile since I've last visited Great America and I think it's time for another visit this year. It's been almost ten years since I last visited and I think it's been long overdue, can't wait! ;)

Alright, now it's time for part 2 of the Hollywood Studios report! I don't really have much to say, so we'll just jump right into the report!
IMG_1732.JPG
It's morning at the Studios! I wonder what ride I'm going on first....
IMG_1733.JPG
I don't feel like walking down that way. I have an irrational fear of hats.
IMG_1734.JPG
IMG_1737.JPG
IMG_1736.JPG
Go? Go where?
IMG_1739.JPG
I think I'll go down this way...
IMG_1742.JPG
(That pun was TOTALLY not intended)
IMG_1744.JPG
IMG_1745.JPG
I really like this ride. The waits, notsomuch
IMG_1756.JPG
This ride, however, didn't have a wait over 20 minutes during my visit! Sweet!
IMG_1758.JPG
Trees, through the hole!
IMG_1759.JPG
This is why I am afraid of hats. You never know when they start to glow/shoot lightning/eat people
IMG_1766.JPG
This park is so pretty.
IMG_1770.JPG
IMG_1771.JPG
IMG_1775.JPG
Bye Hollywood Studios! Now where do I go?
IMG_1776.JPG
Epcot! Yay!
IMG_1764.JPG
Stop. Report's over. Time to leave. Leave a comment, that is! Thanks for reading! Next up... City Museum! Yay!

Again, nice photos Griffin! Hollywood Studios definitely seems to be one of the best Walt Disney World resorts.

I have yet to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios, but they have some amazing rides (Tower of Terror, Rock n Rollercoaster, etc) and I really have to visit soon. It reminds me a lot of Universal Studios how the pathways are set up like an actual road, it's really nice!

PS. The Epcot Ball is so photogenic :)

Alright guys, next up in the list of adventures is the St. Louis City Museum!

This was the first day of a 3 day St. Louis trip back in April. I went with my dad, Nathan (kumba830), Jo (Jojo19799) Jon (deathbydinn), his mom, Cameron (Cameron), and his friend Jesse.

Take a look at this place!
IMG_1783.JPG
Any place with dragons in the parking lot is cool in my book!
IMG_1784.JPG
Buses on the roof are just a bonus.
IMG_1785.JPG
IMG_1786.JPG
This face is required when entering the museum. Then you get the gold star, and you're in!
IMG_1788.JPG
IMG_1795.JPG
Boob credit!
IMG_1796.JPG
Nathan then cut off his leg. yay!
IMG_1800.JPG
High five for loss of limbs!
IMG_1804.JPG
Whoops, sorry, avert your eyes children!
IMG_1803.JPG
Big Brother is watching. I probably shouldn't have posted the photo of the peep show....
IMG_1805.JPG
Randomness
IMG_1817.JPG
Meanwhile, in a ball pit....
IMG_1815.JPG
IMG_1819.JPG
Just to make sure we don't have TOO many drunk people roaming the area, they keep a chain on the fridge.
IMG_1825.JPG
The confusion of the place will get you drunk enough. Somehow.
IMG_1826.JPG
Whale.
IMG_1827.JPG
The new treehouse area features this. I don't remember what it is. But it looks like this.
IMG_1833.JPG
I'll just bring this to a close with this organ. Thanks for looking! Up next is Coasting for Kids!

Oh City Museum. The most jacked up place on this planet. To add on to that, it seems they add something new every time I visit! ;)


Great trip report again, Griffin.
