First off, yes, Iron Rattler and Texas Giant have still been closed, which is a bummer, but if there is one thing I think we excel at with our tours is turning a disappointing situation into something AWESOME! So in short, yes, we have made lemonade in Texas, and it hasn't even been from our own pee! (It's because we're sweating too much to pee!)
Anyway, onto a few photos....
"You guys ready to ride?"
The view from the top of Master Blaster!
We had cabanas for our group the entire day so we could come back any time and relax! (Highly recommend this service!!!)
Our first un-official trip day (or day zero as we call it) started at Schlitterbahn! (I know, I know, the last thing you wanted to see when you opened up this trip report was that much man boob!)
We started the day out with some ERT on Master Blaster...
Then we tube chuted our way over to Surfenburg via "The Falls" - the world's longest water ride!
They had these signs up all over the park welcoming us! That was awesome!
The "Original" Schlitterbahn part of the park has that "Ye Olde Swimming Hole" kinda feel to it...
"Swim up margarita bar? Yes, please!" (They certainly knew exactly where to put the TPR sign!) =)
Elissa sporting her Japanese towel/hoodie! (Wonder when these are gonna catch on in America?)
TPR members know how to close out an awesome day at the park!
Our welcome dinner that evening was some awesome "NYC Style Pizza" thanks to Grimaldi's!
What a great ending to a great day!

Summer Adventures was a huge surprise! Jungle Twist was so out of control, Jake and I spun for a good 30 seconds after the ride stopped. The dark ride was a nice surprise and the water tokens were a nice touch by the park.

Seriously the time at Summer Adventures at Fair Park was awesome!!! Great hospitality and some of the attractions were actually really fun. Plus flow rider ERT! Thanks to Robb, Elissa, and the park for making this happen!
