When I first glanced at the InvadR station pic, I thought you had switched from rides to some kind of brew room due to the walls and general look of it. Also really like the roaming team of “water misters”.

I've gone pantless!

Thanks for letting me tag along for the InvadR ERT. That ride is much more fun after dark.

While I'm glad people liked Battle for Eire, I was more excited about all the extra beer taps at Grogan's. ;)

Thanks for posting! I'm glad everyone is having a good time (although there was never any doubt that they would!)

Great report! Love the wristband Flash Passes, that's a great idea. Busch Gardens always looks fantastic.

I was shocked when Robb sent them out - that they captured the entire front row of riders on Griffon!

I really thought his camera would only get the central 4 seats. . . I continue to be blown away impressed not only how good the quality of the pics are, but also how wide the shot they are able to capture.

Robb is a genius at getting the camera steady on some coasters too. . it was a joy to witness the process,

I still maintain how impressed I am with the quality and horizontal capacity of the cameras.

Your skill enhances for sure :)

this was such a great trip for me, despite the limping by the end!
so many firsts: 1st Top Spin, 1st Vekoma flyer, 1st stand up, 1st ARM drop tower, 1st Round Up (followed 1 day later by my 1st Super Round Up) only my 2nd Disc-o (and the one at CP isn't really a disc-o anyways, due to the extra "hump" I'd guess). . . .just a great trip!
