I can't get over all of the priceless facial expressions from everyone! But hey, since you're all members of TPR aren't you suppose to put your arms up and not be scared out of your minds ;)

My face hurts. :(

King's Dominion was easily my least favourite park of the trip.
Just... everything about it was absolutely crap!
And even more annoyingly, the Scooby Doo coaster is supposed to be the best coaster in the park, and I didn't ride it. :cry:

Still, great photos Hanno!

Tue Sep 30, 2008 12:33 pm

Wow I cant believe you got us on Drop Tower! That's awesome!

Tue Sep 30, 2008 12:51 pm

I wasn't ready!

People in the office were wondering why I was belly laughing!

Robb are you trying to drop it like it's hot? That's my territory!

I was looking at the earlier pictures thinking 'It was a shame I missed that drop tower it looked cool.'. Then I saw the last two photos and there is me on the drop tower! :wtf: Then the memories came flooding back. Strange how you forget things.

Great photos as always.

AMAZING pics Hanno especially of Griffon!

Fri Oct 03, 2008 3:36 pm

Nice Pics, do you have any idea why some of griffon's seats have two restraint belts while the rest have only one?

Those seats are bigger to make sure "oversized load" can ride too.

Robb and I are butt buddies....
