^ aaaaaaaah, theming, at least something our European amusement parks can be proud of... I'd say our themings are often better than at US parks, but most of our parks have 1 or 2 good coasters whereas you sometimes have 10 good ones at your parks... Maybe we should start trading: some of your coasters against our theming skills ;-)

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Kerryb- I'm just watching Bring It On and it reminded me of me, you and Luke dancing in the Talon station during ERT when the Talon ERT song came on. Booo, miss it!

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

^^When you find that US park with 10 Good coasters let me know. For me Hershey is the only park close to 10 good coasters and even then I have to stretch the word good.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Yeah, 10 good coasters is a bit of a stretch for any park. Personally, I'd prefer a park like Phantasialand with 3 or 4 really good coasters and a bunch of other solid attractions. Across the board quality, not a bunch of random coasters plopped down in a parking lot.

^^ Indeed, I might have exagerated a bit saying ten... I'm sure you got the point though... Some of my favourite coasters are in Europe: Ex: Khan, but when you look at it, Port Aventura has this wonderful coaster, then, an accelerator coaster you can only sit on half of the seats to enjoy (the other half will kill your back), then a woodie which has been ruined by stupid new trains, and a senseless minetrain. So, yes, Khan is FANTASTIC, but I'd rather have a day in which I can ride Medusa, Nitro, Toro, Kingda Ka, Batman, Superman (well, it's just ok) and still have some other cheesy coasters I don't care much about (GASM, RT and so on). That's still 6 good coasters in one park... But you're definitely right: the park itself is not particularly beautifully landscaped...

Boulder Dash was a prime example, just sat in that back car with Kimmy for God-knows how long, not budging! And then Talon! OMG, the Talon ERT session was probably my favourite, that was the biggest blast ever!

I have no idea why I know this or why I kept track, but we did 14 laps on Boulder Dash together. It was completely and utterly amazing.

Any ERT is better than no ERT. It doesn't really bother me if it doesn't start exactly as scheduled. It's not that big of a deal. Also, I'm on vacation. I don't let too much bother me while I'm on vacation. I save the stress for work.

Day 4, Part 2 - Waldameer Park!

Photos by lots of people - Dan, Hanno, Natalie, Ginny, Erik, Ben, Jes, and lots more. Thank you for contributing them!
The next stop of our tour was Waldameer Park!
We got in the park and they stamped us up good.
This stuff didn't come off for weeks! =)
Now some of you may think we are here to ride the new Ravine Flyer II...well, not quite...
Tonight we will not be roller coaster fans, but instead we are "Retro Active Groupies!"
Trevor was the star of the show...
And Brooke was his #1 fangirl!
Ok, ok, who are we kidding? We're here for Ravine Flyer II!
Just look at that view! Very sexy!
And if you're a roller coaster enthusaist and a bridge fanatic, then you'll never have a reason to leave Waldameer!
Over the bridge we go with a very nice pop of airtime!
Equally as important as Ravine Flyer II was Ravine Flyer 3!
Kiddie Credit! Cha-Ching.
Then there was the evil Log Flume of wet death.
*NOT* Dan Approved! (Give yourself a bingo square)
Winner of the 2008 Expression of the Year award!
Time to get Wa....Wa....WACKY!!!
Yay! KidTums gets a Wacky Shack credit!
"Jolly, Jolly, Jolly...I love the Wacky Shack."
OMG! What are those pig nose mutant creatures?!?! Bring back Trevor!!!
Random group photo! "Everyone go molest the clown!"
"I believe I can fly."
TPR even makes waiting in line fun.
As you can see the kiddie woodie here launched at about 100 MPH!
If Madonna had SLR's instead of cones....
"Hello world. Just when you thought I was strange for eating plain pasta and McDonlads hamburgers, how about a Mustard and Mayo sandwitch? Tyler, would you like some?"
And now a couple funny pictures of's one....
Here's another!
Would you like to see another picture of Ravine Flyer II? Of course you would!
Does this make Wrebbit cry?
What exactly were you girls doing in there?!?!?
KidTums get a Frog Hopper credit!!!
Looks like someone left one of their 900 bags behind...
TPR TAKEOVER on the Pirate's Cove fun house!
"What do you mean no food? Like...EVER?!?!?"
Night falls and things start to get a little spooky!
The sky lit up with lightning and craziness for our evening ERT.
There's a train in all that darkness somewhere.
OMG! He's wet...and HAPPY! Must be a Dan-Bot.
Yay for more scary Dave photos!
It was a great night at Waldameer! Thank you! Our lightning rides on Ravine Flyer II will go down in TPR history!

Next stop....Idlewild.

Nighttime ERT on Ravine Flyer II in the thunder storm was awesome! Best coaster riding ever!

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.
