Theme Park Review held an event last weekend--on Saturday, September 17, 2011, to be exact. Some of you may have heard about it. I know I did; then again, I was there. So it would've been difficult for me not to have heard about it. I can't speak for others who were there, but only for myself.
Confused? I am, as well--but not to worry. It's all getting clearer now . . .
Deep South Bash! The latest in my year of Bashes! (Only one more Bash to go!) And what a Bash it was. Robb and Elissa pulled out the stops for the first TPR Bash ever held at Six Flags over Georgia--and the park responded by being excellent hosts. What more can be said about . . .
ERT on every coaster in the park either before the park opened or after it closed; A walkthrough tour of Monster Mansion, the park's classic dark ride, with all the effects running; A backstage tour with views of the park that you can't get in guest areas; EBT ("exclusive beer time"), TPR Quest, and the GASM Water Challenge; and Great weather and great times with a great group!
Yes, Busch Gardens Tampa has its work cut out for it topping Deep South Bash at Six Flags over Georgia, as you will now see . . .
OK! Out of those racks, you maggots! Time for Deep South Bash!
"Oh, darn these wristbands! They're so hard to put on! They're tearing out my arm hairs!"
The hordes await.
"Good people of Theme Park Review! I implore thee! Go forth and enjoy thyselves!"
What the heck is everybody milling around here for?
Oh. Food. Ask a silly question . . .
Through the ultra-double-secret door to . . .
. . . Monster Mansion!
Ladies and gentleman, the backside of monster.
"Your heart may belong to your mama, but in here your butt is mine!"
Fortunately, I was able to escape before this diabolical creature sucked out all of my soul!
Ladies and gentleman, the Cousin Itt Recovering Alcoholic Jug Band!
Ok, admit it. Everybody wants to "hit a human" from time to time. Even other humans.
"Brick-a-braca-firecracker-sis-boom-bah! Hit the human, hit the human! Rah, rah, rah!"
"I shor am sorry for killin' ya'll and eatin' your guts at Gettysburg."
"Well, y'all was hungry. I'd a done the same."
Real men walk through the Monster Marsh!
Be careful not to clothesline yourselves.
"The time of men is over . . .
. . . and the time of the orc has come!"
Let's try an experiment. With flash . . .
. . . and without.
Watch your step there. Those who fall will be eaten!
"Ha, ha, ha! You're out of the marsh, but your butt is mine again!"
OK. Nothing disturbing about this. Just one monster playing with another monster's tongue.
"Hi, y'all! Why, it'd just tickle me to death to swallow y'all's souls!"
Y'all come back now, heah? For the rest of this TR, at least.
The best thing about these trip reports is that everyone has a completely different perspective of the event. (Although all perspectives were extremely positive!) Even though we were all at the same park on the same day, it is still extremely enjoyable to look at each person's pictures of the day. Great report Chuck!
