Thanks for all the kind words Bill it was great spending time with you too. The same goes for Mark, Adam, Tom, Chuck(Great Picture) Brian, Rich and of course my roommate Barry and everyone else too. And I especially want to thank Miles , Shane and Steve to you guys are the best I had an amazing time with you. As for Europe until just today I thought I would do China. But now the more I think about it most of my friends are going to Europe so yes I'm doing Europe next year. :b

Just a quick word to say how much fun I had in Japan. Not only were the parks and coasters great, my fellow TPR people better. Everything exceeded my expectations. Hats off to Elissa & Rob; I look forward to my next TPR trip and sticking my hands in other new bodily fluids.

Today's Park - Kurashiki Tivoli Park - Where KidTums got her first ever coaster "credit!!!"

The group is back on a train headed for Tivoli!
tivoli02.jpg
Don't worry...this is Japan. Those aren't actual people. They are holograms. The train will go right through them!
tivoli2_cfc01.jpg
Ahh, Tivoli....how beautiful, how elegant....let's get the credits!

One of many "escalator rides" in Japan.

I spot a coaster!

tivoli02d.jpg
It's sponsered by Coke which automatically makes it cooler than most other coasters in Japan.
tivoli03.jpg
TPR members take over! Those cooler than the rest of us take the front seat.

"GIMME SOME SUGAR BABY!!!"
tivoli05.jpg
...and boys that blow stuff up take on the back seat.
tivoli5a_tom01.jpg
It's a fun ride, but like most Japanese "Jet Coasters" it's about 100 feet tall, really long, and just kind of meanders back to the station at a moderate speed.

And now the ride KidTums has been waiting for....the "Tivoli Railway!"

Photo by Bob Hoffman
tivoli07.jpg
While Tivoli Railway is technically a roller coaster, this gets REALLY borderline as far as credits are concerend. It only goes about 10 MPH at the TOP speed, and most of the time it goes at "train speed" but it coasts the entire way. There is a "Child Seat" (looks just like a baby car seat) and a baby carrier for infants! The brochure calls it "A slow moving roller coaster that the entire family can enjoy." And they mean ENTIRE family!!!
tivoli08.jpg
Aww....she's too little to ride in the "kids seat" so she'll have to use the baby carrier!
tivoli10.jpg
It's like one of those "Snugli" contraptions for babies, but this one is made for roller coaster riding!!!
tivoli11.jpg
"Hey KidTums! Ready to get your very first coaster credit?" =)
tivoli12.jpg
Here we go! Very slowly, but we're coasting!
tivoli13.jpg
KidTums and mommy are doing OK!
tivol1a_tom03.jpg
OMG! Look at the size of that drop! It's got to be what....FIVE FEET!!! OMG!!!

tivoli15.jpg
Yay! KidTums hits a "Milestone Credit!" Hold up that coaster dork sign!!! (How many coaster geeks had a sign for #1?) ;)

"Hi, I'm Dan. Check out how hot I am. I'm so hot, that if you take a close up picture of my chin, it looks like a scrotum. No, seriously! It does! Ask Lou!!! If you would like to see a photo of my chin as a scrotum, email me!" mrt0ad13@aol.com

There is absolutley no significance about this picture, I just thought "Hot Spoon" was funny.

Wake up Saddam Hussein and the other demons...we are about to ride ***HELL FIGHTER!!!***

Check out our awesome HELL FIGHTER tank! We're loaded with tennis balls and a flame thrower.

Bob liked the log flume, but Brian is all "Meh, it's not as cool as BLOWING STUFF UP!!!"
