shesaidboom AND 307 GO TO MONTREAL AND NEW ENGLAND IN SEARCH OF THEIR 200TH COASTERS AND A BUNCH OF OTHER CRAP!!! PART ONE OF ... THREE? FOUR? WHATEV.

Witness the thrills! The chills! The spills! The dills!

Okay well I don't think either of us ate any dills on this trip, but we'll just pretend for the sake of rhyme that we enjoyed a good crisp dill.

So anyway this trip was not really planned as far in advance as some of our others, which is to say we still had like two months of planning around it. We had originally envisioned adding Seabreeze to the itinerary, but a lack of funds from Jer's jobless A$$ forced us to cancel.

We have always had good luck on trips, be it with good weather, most coasters being open, generally empty parks and basically not a lot of hindrance to our enjoyment of the trip.

There's always a first one that goes bad, though, and for us - I am hoping it was this one. 'Cause like, if it got worse than some of this trip, boy howdy I'd really be tempted to just give up coaster riding.

Part One: La Ronde [...it's in this post, stupid]
Part Two: The Great Escape
Part Three: Six Flags New England
Part Four: Lake Compost Day One
Part Five: Lake Compost Day Two/Conclusion

---

Stop one on our trip was La Ronde in Montreal, a report which we will present to you - IN THE FORM OF HAIKUS!

Before we begin, I'll give you a reasoning as to just why we decided to report in haikus: Montreal and La Ronde sucked so hard that we were forced to create haikus to help pass the time and keep our sanity.

CanobieFan and sfne2003 - we're both in agreement that you guys are the jerks for having such a good time here whilst we got "le shaft". :x

Without further adieu, let's get to haiku!

I'm curious as to which day you went because most schools started august 28. That doesnt mean ALL of them did. Some started september 1st. It's too bad you had a bad time...but is the reason for it only the lines? Because when I go to a park I know I'm gonna have to wait on some lines...

We went on August 28th. Lines were a big problem, but that definately wasn't the only reason we didn't have a good time. Operations were really poor, dispatch times really long and only one train on everything besides Goliath. It was generally a crappy day outside. There were bees everywhere! People were rude and there was a lot of line jumping, none of which was disciplined. It was a lot of little things that added up.

Don't think that we're upset or anything with you because you said schools would be open, that's not the case at all. We actually appreciated your help and advice. We just thought it would be a funny haiku :P

La Ronde now has a TR in which people went when it was closed, and then a TR with people doing haikus ! It's a unique park when speaking of the trip reports that people make after visiting it :lmao:

I love pickles. No more comments neccesary.

I find your thread quite offensive :

Montreal, the suck
Bad service, bad English too
It smells like baguette

Maybe there's bad english because it's a french city you mo...
And baguette is a french thing from France... very different from Quebec !
And Montreal doesn't suck... maybe you've never visited your own city...

16. You need a sense of humor to view the forums. If you don't have a sense of humor, or are easily offended, please turn back now.


It was all in jest. We make fun of ourselves all the time too. Also, point us to the place where we said Toronto didn't suck? :P

We don't try to offend and it's not like we're personally attacking people from Quebec, so please don't take it as that. [Jer: "Montreal does whatever I say it does!"] Also, from our experience, we found that we disliked Montreal. It's just our opinion. And this is *our* thread :P

Here, a haiku just for you:

Toronto smells bad
At least we're not Hamilton
Rancid Kraft Dinner!

Good to the last drop
