Photo TR: EJ & Chuck's 2007 Mid-Atlantic Adventure

Postby live2tell75 » Mon Apr 30, 2007 2:15 pm

This past weekend I flew up to the Burg to visit Chuck (cfc) and do a quick Mid-Atlantic park tour. I must say that Chuck is a gracious and awesome host! Thanks again Chuck for everything!

After arriving Friday morning, Chuck and I hit Busch Gardens Europe. I had only visited BGE once back in 97', so I was really looking forward to visiting this park again. This place is, in opinion the most gorgeous theme park that I have ever visited. I absolutely love the theming, landscaping and the way the attractions are intergraded throughout the park.

Got to experience 3 new attractions since my last visit: Apollo's Chariot, Corkscrew Hill and Darkastle. Thumbs up for all 3! Apollo's Chariot has cracked my top ten coaster list, smooth as glass! I loved Darkastle, I have heard it wasn't that great especially with the Spiderman comparisons. I thought it held it's own and is a great addition for the park!

Enough talking and onto the photos!

^&^^ Thanks guys. So after we left BGE and had dinner, we stopped by The gigantic Yankee Candle Company store. This was like mini theme park type store. Very themed and it even snowed in the Christmas section of the store!

I've gone pantless!

Hmm--that "Willy Wonka" shot is probably the creepiest picture of me ever. :lolr:

I had a great time, as well, Eric. Glad to see that you made it back safe and sound.

BGE looks really nice. From these pictures, and other pictures I've seen Nessie, Alpengeist, and Griffon all look really close to eachother.

Why do I still have a donkey title???
