You should really not go because filming for TV or commercials isn't, "Enthusiast ERT". But if you let go of your expectations, and just go along for the ride, whatever that may be, you're likely to have a fun and unique time!


I couldn't agree with you more. I have been to commercial shoots, invited by TPR to cover media event's, etc. There is a HUGE difference between the media event's parks invite you to and commercial shoots... and to be honest, you have to be a special kind of stupid to confuse one with the other!

Now every time someone mentions HangTime, all I can think about is BanTime :lmao:
Tigga, please!

SWEET! Did you get to meet Bert?

I enjoyed watching his show when it was on (are they still producing new episodes?)

Through TPR, my wife and I were able to enjoy a film shoot for the Travel Channel a few years ago. We had a great experience that exceeded our expectations and we are still very grateful for it. We appreciated the opportunity TPR gave their members to enjoy an experience that is not common for the general public. I'm sorry that some people don't appreciate these opportunities given to them but I hope that doesn't stop Robb from providing these experiences to people who would be genuinely grateful for them.

Here's a clip from the finished film shoot that we were a part of... thanks again TPR for the wonderful opportunity to enjoy the park in a very special way.

Robb, I wouldn't blame you one bit if you never held another WCB because you just couldn't bring yourself to deal with all the terrible obnoxious entitled @$$holes in SoCal. We're overflowing with them, and it seems like they're multiplying faster than ever. What you do with this forum is exactly what I wish I could do with the 405 freeway on a daily basis. Oh, the relief that would be.

Anyway, it can't be repeated enough that some of us really do love and appreciate everything you guys do, especially the efforts made to include us in your adventures. It's amazing that you're still willing to tolerate humanity on any level after everything you've been through!

Yup! Funny guy! What you see on the show is him, the entire time, even off camera. He had this idea for this cheesy group walk thing, that we all did, and they used that. So hilarious! It was the lone time you actually saw me in it! Lol

Went to the park yesterday to check out hangtime and really liked it. I think knotts really has a winner on their hands and wouldn't mind seeing more of these infinity coasters pop up.

Question for you Knott's regulars, I'm visiting family in Orange County for the 4th of July, and was thinking of adding a trip to Knott's. But the only days that I can do are the 5th or 6th. I figured with it being summer Friday would be busier so I was curious if it would be better to try for Thursday or Friday? Thanks in advance!
