Looks like you had a great time at Great Adventure. Glad to see it, was Joker down during your visit?

P.S. Also looks like Kristen had fun decapitating that Piñata.

Does KT always carry the heads of her slain enemies on the tip of her sword?

Far too often...

KT had a nice time on the trip, to answer some random questions I saw:

- She doesn't like parks and coasters as much as we do.
- Phoenix is still her number 1 coaster by far.
- The noises she made while riding Phoenix GlowPhest ERT were hilarious.
- She liked her first B&M credit's with Valravn being her favorite of the three she rode.
- She hated Mean Streak the same as the rest of us.

Challenge me at Donkey Kong...I dare ya!

I was kind of worried after the SLCs in Europe, but sanity has prevailed. ;)

Impressive video quality in that El Toro video. In the off-ride shots, it's visually as close to "actually there" as you can probably get.

El Toro is so awesome. Having been on all of the major Intamin coasters in Europe and North America plus about half the RMC coasters, El Toro is easily my favorite because of the intensity and how the ride doesn't give you one second to catch your breath from beginning to end. But I'll admit I haven't been on Lightning Rod yet.

You can tell in the pictures and even more in person that Bizarro's old Medusa paint is really starting to show through the purple in a lot of places. Maybe it'll eventually get a sand blast and re-spray like it's New England counterpart. I personally liked the old theme better, anyway.

Great to see you guys having fun, these trip reports are really great to read!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I agree with the person who said they liked Bizzaro's old theme.

Bring back Medusa! One of the best color schemes on a coaster out there.
