Oh. My. God.
It's worse than I thought it would be.
For the people not on the trip, this wasn't my post. This post (quoted above) was my mother under my username. My mother is heavily sedated on sleeping pills at night. I left my laptop with the auto-login feature and I now realize how foolish this was.

Overview of my day:
-Wake up late/get ready to load bus
-Get assaulted by Robb with the camera, get confused
-Get informed of the post
-Get mortified
-Call mom
-Robb announces "Take as many pictures of Bryan as possible"
-Gets mortified again
-Attempt to explain the situation to the crowd
-Nobody believes Bryan

-Bryan "It's all about me" Stoll
-Bryan Stoll

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Today was amazing. The back seat of Cyclops is beyond anything I have experienced. It is, for me, the best coaster at Mt. Olympus.

I've got pics, but am to freaking tired to post them.

Going to bed.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Oh, highlights of my day:

* Riding the Trojan Horse go-cart and while racing another TPR member a kid slams into both of us intentionally and I ran into the wall. (He also ran into other members too) I drove to the ride op and turned him in, earning him a warning (he should have lost his riding priviledges). I told the ride op "You better get him before I do." They almost saw a black man running down the tracks and snatching a 16 year old out of a car (the cars were about that slow) and throwing him over the horse! He had me madder than the lady at Indiana Beach that stood over me outside the smoking section and she got ashes on my shoulder! Then she acted like she didn't do it! She almost went into the lake!

* While I loved the rides, I think a few employees need to work on their customer service. A girl gave me attitude when I asked her, at around 10:30am, when were they going to serve food. At first she acted like I wasn't even there! The park was open at 9:30am and there wasn't a place to get drinks or food! I told her "Nevermind honey. I'll go somewhere else. Your customer service is making me sick."

* Getting another ride in on Hades. Talk about wild rides in the dark!

* Finding more statue credits and several members were helping me! Please note: Find statues... don't ask me to hump the costumed characters! I want to stay in the park for the rest of the day! Sheesh!

* The backseat on Cyclops made no sense! You're not supposed to go down the last hill with your butt perpendicular to your back!

* Avalanche! It's just as out of control as the video! I appreciated the staff bending over backwards to get the coaster running for us after the lightning hit it.

* Today's group activity (heh heh).

Actually Bryan is telling the truth.

You'll find out the how and why later.

Be patient and don't give him a hard time about it.

Yea we have to give a shout out to the crew at Timberfalls.

Last nights thunderstorm fried the sensors on avalanche, and cause some issues with the flume, but since we are here they worked their tails off and got avalanche going.

They brought in all the help they could find and guess what, avalanche is worth it, its an awesome coaster and worth a side trip to get it.
Air time is insane, just a cool coaster.

As for Hades, Cyclops Zeus and the rest of the dells, well Cyclops last row is absolutely crazy, the airtime is beyond ridiculous. what a blast. Hades is a great ride too, the tunnel is so long, and twice over at that speed. This park was also camera friendly when it comes to video, so look forward to that when i return home.

Oh can some one please post the pictures of the several tackles and the wet towel snapping contests too?

Indiana Beach

Postby robbalvey » Tue Aug 07, 2007 11:35 pm

I'm freaking tired so I'm going to post pictures from Indiana Beach and something random underneath them.

Please watch the two videos. One of them is very funny, the other one is a coaster video.

I'm so tired right now I'm seeing penguins in our room.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?
