^Oh. Yeah, I didn't actually follow through with the registration process because I didn't see anything listed like in year's past. But now I am seeing us mentioned, so we're all good. Thanks for that! Looking forward to the event.

^ I somehow missed it, glad you enjoyed your visit! Don't think I've seen too many photos from the arcade, so I liked seeing that. For future photo TR's, I'd recommend putting more comments underneath the photos, since that's a great place to talk about some of the more specific details on how your day went.

Wife update! (For anyone still following this saga of my wife who's afraid of coasters/heights, that is.)

This past weekend at this year's Phunfest, she finally bucked up and went for her first ride on Phoenix (or, as my daughter has taken to calling it as of late, "the trampoline coaster"). Managed to talk her into it by telling her the drop was only 2 feet higher than Jack Rabbit's at Kennywood, which she did last weekend. Super happy to finally get all four of us on at the same time! She denies making any noise whatsoever, but she let out yelps over every last hump in that airtime buffet.

It was a great weekend, and I'm sure everyone else who was there will put up full reports with pics at some point. But honestly, it's Knoebels. What more needs to be said?

I was very seriously looking at finally going to PPP this year, but it just wouldn't quite work out, unfortunately... However, I'm am absolutely planning on making it out to Knoebels finally next year, if not for PPP, just for a regular day there! It's definitely more than time!
