If you are respectful of others, courteous and slightly overgoing you should have no trouble making friends on a TPR Trip. Just like any other new experience just be yourself. Months before the trip starts there is a Private Forum on TPR just for the participants of your trip to allow people to get to know each other and bond beforehand.

Some people on the trips are hardcore about riding as many coasters/thrill rides as possible, others are more laid back and some do the trips more for the social aspect.

This hobby as a whole tends to be more male dominated but on some of the US trips there has been a surprisingly high percentage of women.

There are no restrictions on rooming. There have been instances where male and female friends roomed together as well as couples.

Thanks for your interest in TPR. Glad you enjoy the site.

^Yeah... Somehow, we managed to connect and then there were sparks!

Taylor, I did my first TPR tour two Summer ago (and roomed with CTU Agent after meeting him on the trip forum) and since that time, I've met some incredible people from around the world. As long as you have an open mind going in, you'll really find yourself loving the trips. If it gives you any idea, I talk to some of my trip friends daily, and one of them (whom I met on that first tour) actually does a "show" here on the site with me.

You never know who you may meet or the experiences you might have, but on a TPR tour, memories and friendships are complementary.

And now I feel like a true hospitality salesman... :lolr:

I'm a little worried thats it's going to be hard to talk to other people from other countries :S. In two years I'll probably go on a TPR trip, is it hard to make new friends on a trip like that?

Hi Robb, I was wondering...do you use any special equipment when on take on ride videos? I have noticed that POV's of rides such as Intimidator 305 seem too smooth to be held. If so what do you use? Just curious. :)

Hi I was just wondering if when you plan a trip to go somewhere (i.e flamingo land) is it a good idea to put it up on an events board and if it is how do you do it ?
