You know, through all these pages, not one person has mentioned pie.

Did anyone have pie on this trip?

No pie here :)

But Chuck did send our group an Oreo Cookie Icecream Cake at TGI Fridays when we were at Cedar Point... lol

We in turn sent him back a plate with two breadsticks and four oreos with whipcream :-P

I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about Dave. :roll: And it's a free country... everyone who lives in it technically has the right to yell shut up. Anyway, sorry that it's it's two days later and your still bitter about it.

p.s. Next time... read my disclaimer ;)

Well we are back at home and I finally have some time to continue the mini-updates! Sorry they went on hiatus, but we have been working 18 hours a day for the past week and we just had no time to do the updates.

Anyway, today was Little Amerricka where we were given a "sneak preview" of their new junior sized wooden coaster "Meteor." They opened it just for us to get the group excited about this ride. Basically, this coaster has been several years in the making for park owner Daryl as it was purchased from the now defunct Hillcrest Park in Chicago.

After spending the last couple of years re-building the coaster to it's original spec (lots of very classic parts and building techniques were used) it's now open to the public!

Check out our photos and a POV video of Meteor....

Thanks to Little Amerricka for opening Meteor for us today!

Meteor is a "Junior" sized wooden coaster and while it might not be the most thrilling ride in the world, it's going to be GREAT for the families that the park caters to.

TPR members are all "happy happy fun fun" on Meteor.

No matter how old you are, being on a TPR trip it's like being back in summer camp having fun with friends!

Hey look...it's not just the same 10 people! =)

Looking at the excitment you would have no idea the ride isn't 200 feet tall!

Here we are hanging out on the brand new Meteor at Little Amerricka!

The ride is so smooth and awesome for all ages that even Elissa's parents rode!

This is NOT the person you want to have operating your coaster! =)

Oh, yeah, we should get in the other credits at the park as well! Can't forget the Toboggan, which is actually the original prototype version of this ride.
