--Robb Alvey

PS. There are still a *few* spots open for the MidWest 2007 and Spain 2007 trips too!

2007 Trips Update - October 7th, 2006:

Spain Is FULL!
However the "waitlist" is currently open. So if you're still interested, get us your deposit so you can be #1 on the waitlist!

Midwest HAS OPENINGS! NOTE: Only *FIVE* Spots as of 10/12/06
We had so much interest in the Midwest trip that we have decided to do two buses! I can only assure you that this is a GOOD thing! A lot of the US parks are much happier to give us stuff when we have 100 participants rather than 50, and with multiple trains on most coasters you should still never have to wait at ERT. You can ask our UK Trip Peeps...with 53 of us, sometimes the coasters were going half empty! We have 14 spots open for this great trip (with some ERT already confirmed!) so get your deposits in today!

Japan Will Have A Random Lottery!
Keep in mind you still have until October 12th to have a chance at this once in a lifetime TPR Adventure Tour! Yes there will be a lottery, but you'll have just as good of a chance as the others! This will be the smallest of our group trips at right around 30 participants, but it's sure to be amazing!

*A NOTE ABOUT WAITLISTS!*
Please do not get discouraged if you do not make it into one of the trips on a lottery, or if you can't signup just yet, but think you may want to sign up at a later date. We have already had one drop for Spain and two drops for Japan! For the UK trip we had FOURTEEN Drops between October and May...that means FOURTEEN people made it into the trip either from the waitlist or signing up in the Spring!

Please keep those questions and deposits coming!


Hello Theme Park Review Members!!!!

Here is the news a lot of people have been waiting for! Our official announcement of our 2007 TPR Group Trips! (well, at least 2 out of 3 of them.) =)

Below are the links to the 2007 Mid-West USA Trip, the 2007 Spain Trip flyers, and the 2007 Japan Adventure Trip.

If you have any questions please feel free to email me or Elissa.

Look forward to seeing you on our trips next year!!!

2007 Spain Trip:
http://www.themeparkreview.com/events/T ... er2007.pdf
This 10 day trip will take to you the best parks in Spain (and pretty much
all of them) to ride well known coasters like Dragon Khan, Stampida,
Superman, Torando, Magnus Colossus, Port Aventura's new for 2007
Intamin Rocket Coaster, and much more!

2007 Mid-West Trip:
http://www.themeparkreview.com/events/T ... er2007.pdf
This 12 day trip will take you to some of the most well known parks in the USA! Cedar Point, Holiday World, Kings Island, Six Flags Great America, Wisconsin Dells, and MORE! If you are one of our "international" readers this trip would be GREAT for you as the dollar works in your favor! =)

2007 Japan Trip:
http://www.themeparkreview.com/events/T ... er2007.pdf
This 17 DAY Japan Tour will take place September 1st to September 16th, 2007 and focus on the lesser visited southern Japan parks including: Space World, Mitsui Greenland, Kijima, Central Park, Universal Osaka, Expoland, Tivoli Park, Parque Espana, Nagashima Spaland, Hamanako Pal Pal, Lagunasia, Fuji-Q, Tokyo Disney & MORE! There will be 20-24 parks in total!

The Japan trip is going to be what we are calling a TPR "Adventure Tour!" What does that mean? There won't be any main coach or bus, but instead we'll do the trip "Robb & Elissa Style" with bullet trains, busses, taxis, monorails, a bit of craziness and a LOT of fun! It will be a great exciting way to experience what getting around Japan is really like! Think of it as an "Amazing Race meets Theme Park Review" style of trip.

You will need Adobe Acrobat to read these flyers which you can get here:

If you have any questions, this is the place to ask them!

NOTE: We will also update the "events" page:
http://www.themeparkreview.com/events/events.htm

We have posted the transcript to the "2007 Group Trips Q&A Chat Session" please see this thread as many of your questions might have already been asked:
http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/vi ... hp?t=28526

FAQ'S
1. Q: "Do I need to be on the entire trip?"
A: Yes you do. In order to keep the trips more exclusive, at this time we are not planning to offer a "join us for a day, or part of the trip" option. If we did that, we run the risk of having hundreds of people show up on a certain day, and that would defeat our goal of having fewer people in order to get better ERT sessions.

2. Q: "What if I live locally?"
A: You are welcome to come meet up with us for the day, however you would not be able to join in on any "park perks" which includes ERT sessions, group meals, photo ops, etc. Even as a local, these trips should be a good value for your money considering the additional perks you will get.

3. Q: "What if I have a season pass?"
A: At this time we are not able to offer a discount for people who have season passes as the park will still charge us for each "special event ticket" per person (which could include your admission, ERT, meal, etc) which your season pass does NOT include. And even if we did, the discount would not equal the entire cost of the your pass, but a fraction of the price based on an assumed value of your visit that day. For example, a SFMM season pass cost $60 this year. Most people if they buy a pass will go to a park 5 times during a season. So you can assume each visit to the park would be worth about $12. Considering that most parks we visit you will get a meal or ERT worth at least that amount, it kind of makes giving a discount for passholders a little pointless. And when you're paying $2,000 for a trip, if $12 is a dealbreaker, well then, perhaps this isn't the trip for you.

4. Q: "If there is a lottery, are the members of the UK trip in that too?"
A: No. One of the perks for taking our trips is that you automatically have priority seating on future trips.

5. Q: "What about the Italy add-on?"
A: Once we have everyone signed up for the Spain trip we will discuss potential add-ons. The TusenFryd/Liseberg add-on for the UK trip was not part of the initial plans, it was originally just a Robb & Elissa 'side trip'. It just sort of "happened" that it became part of the official trip due to 1. the parks we were visiting (yay Balder) and 2. the reasonable price. At the moment the Italy add-on is pricing out to be about $400 more than UK Trip add-on due to more expensive flights and hotels (we HAVE to stay at a hotel with A/C during August in Italy!) We are looking into a few different add-on trip options, and this will be discussed in the Spain Trip Forum once the deposit deadline has closed.

And I must stress to everyone....please....

READ THE ENTIRE THREAD BEFORE YOU ASK A QUESTION!

It has probably already been asked.

I hope this helps!

Most of the Spain peeps are sending in their deposits via the mail so I'd say we have about 20 people who said "it's in the mail", but we've only received a few via PayPal.

And it would seem like most of the Spain people were on the UK trip so they know they don't have to get theirs in anytime soon! ;)

^It means that you will share a room with someone. There will be two beds in each hotel room.

If you want a room to yourself you'll have to pay a supplement, but that price has not been finalized yet.
