Everyone has their sexy hot pink wristbands and we are off to our next park...


TPR has arrived at Alton Towers! A little warm up ERT on Air to start our day...


Ivan is ready to fly!


Brit Crew REPRESENT!


As you can see, Air does some very "funky" things to some people...


If I didn't know any better, I'd say Craig is getting...well... "Ass Raped???"


"Fly fatass fly!!!" Do you know what movie this quote is from? If you do...

EMAIL DAN!!!
You might even be randomly chosen to get a TPR Bag-O-Crap!


TPR is about to take over Thirteen!


According to the park, Thirteen is the most psychologically challenging coaster ever built. They recommend visitors only ride once per day because it is so intense, and they have a suggested age restriction (although it does not seem to be enforced.)


Nerd!!!


"Is everyone ready to be psychologically challenged?" (We know many of you are already mentally challenged!) =)


Thirteen is basically a fun "Extended Roller Skater" or "Tivoli" type roller coaster through the woods with a small "Tower of Terror" like drop at the end. The ride is really tame, but fun, and unless you've never been on Tower of Terror isn't not terribly "thrilling." Thirteen would have been PERFECT if marketed as a runaway mine train for families, like Big Thunder Mountain or Expedition Everest, but it's not the "most psychologically challenging ride in the world." The only psychological challenge you may have is "How long did I just queue for that?" It's not a bad ride by any means, but it fails at being either a great family ride or a great thrill ride due to the way it was marketed. What a disappointment because the ride does have a lot of potential, but I feel the way it was presented to the public was a huge fail.


This is a MUCH better use of the Corkscrew.


NOTED!


Yes we are sad and pathetic.


Cute kid and nice rack = Not sad and pathetic!


Spin KidTums! Spin!!!


Not sure when this was added, but Alton Towers has one of the best looking "Driving School" attractions for kids we've ever seen!


It even had a Car Wash for kids to drive through!


Good thing we had FastTrak tickets...even the Sky Ride had a huge line!
