they really did treat us all fantastic, and Jeffrey really does know how to run a park! Ron did a fantastic job leading our Cliff Walk tour too!

was so happy I got to raise $$ for such a great cause, and have a fantastic time while doing it.
(and since the links stay active, maybe all the participants will get a few more donations in the future, and SFFT can beat SFOT's total . . LOL)


as to the endurance. . WW really takes it out of you since it's so intense in the back! I needed a quick standing break after 4 rides, then after 2 more, then again after 2. . LOL. But it was so incredible that we pretty much had it to ourselves for an hour!

With all 3 trains on the track, it's about 3 minutes total to get one ride complete and to the lift hill again without leaving the train - so we did pretty good getting that many rides in the 50 minutes or so ERT (since we had to leave to walk over to IR).

we certainly got enough rides in that once the park opened to all, I didn't feel any urge to get back on WW this visit :p

Great trip report! I'd definitely echo another commenter who made a remark on how you bring positivity to your TRs even if things don't go perfectly.

Back in March during their busy weekday operation for spring break, I had the fantastic opportunity to spend five days working at the park. Learning how to operate Scream and Batman was a ton of fun, and I think SFFT is hands down the most beautiful of the SF parks. Being from STL, it was cool running into Ron on my way to grab lunch; with his experience at Astroworld, SFSL, and SFFT, he's always interesting to talk to. Thank you for raising money for a great cause and for posting that huge photo trip report!

Bert,
To your pix, to your commentary, to your participation in this so-worthy cause: BRAVO!! :b
P.S. Looks like you had a ball! (I would've probably fainted from the heat on that tour and missed a very special experience! Am glad you kept hydrated! Photos were awesome.) :cool:

aww. .thanks Alice!

that I do a 4 mile walk every day (as part of my exercise program) probably made the Cliff Walk easier for me, tho to be honest I didn't see anyone struggling (or at the very least, no one was complaining) :)

Got a lovely postcard in the Mail from Give Kids the World Village, thanking me for participating (it was my pleasure).

Steven also wrote a lovely personal note on the postcard regarding how proud he was of Team TPR, so wanted to share.

so glad we were able to raise so much money for this wonderful Charity at SFFT for Team TPR

I worried it was tacky to share, but my Spouse pointed out it was on a postcard, so really anyone during it's mailing, had read it, so it wasn't like I was sharing something super personal.

so . . . sharing :)
