Photo TR: PGA 4/1 Opening Day.

Postby Bush985 » Sun Apr 02, 2006 5:46 pm

Well yesterday was the grand opening of PGA's Survivor the ride, well actually "Technical Rehersals." After a long hard day at the park, I joined up Al, Sean and Kelly for some fun. One of them won wristbands so we could stay in the park till 10. None the less, lets get to the pics.

BTW, Survivor really is an awesome ride. I rode twice yesterday, and a few times the day before and it is certainly a great re-rideable ride. Check it out!

Sean "The Money" Menafee knows how to roll at PGA. He actually bought a fat bling necklace.

Sean reppin da Bling! About five seconds after this picture was taken Sean hid the bling in his shirt out of fear of getting his arse kicked.

So RLD Time, now it's Top Gun time. Sean, Al and Kelly pose for a picture while we wait for the front row.

We ended up the night pretty much with a flight on Xtreme Skyflyer, then a ride on Flying Eagles. Good times at PGA.

Ha, You can tell how happy Kelly is to be around my goofy ass. :oops:

It was a really fun day though, and I brought home a little piece of that Bay Area "bling bling" back to the valley. Last but not least, make sure to head up and check out Survivor, it's a really cool addition to PGA's lineup this year.

Edit....

P.S. Drop towers still scare the hell outta me, I know.... I'm a sissy.

well looks like it was fun I was there too :P I didnt wanna go on the sky coaster there because its so small compared to the 180 ft ones. The thing I find funny is when people go up and wont pull the thing. You go up you might as well come down a fun way instead of real slow.

edit: I got survivor 4 times

FYI, The skycoaster is 170 ft. Only 10 feet shorter. So it really isn't that big of a difference. Not like SFMW's where it's only 100ft and you have no free fall sensation. I didn't pay for anyway, I'm a Skycoaster Site Controller, so any flight on a Skycoaster comes at no cost.

Glad you had fun.
