Another great Sauce-land report.

Too bad that the Behemoth updates are over, but I can't wait to see the East Coast ones.

I look like Jesus

Great Pictures Hanno.
Adult hand carts! Mister Rogers that was just great with the full trolley. And the Crazy house. wow what a great park. Even the Vekoma mouse was really fun.

Leap the dips was a lot better than I was expecting. (side friction and all) The back seat was great. This was also a x00 coaster for Jahan. But I'll let him talk about that. He could photo shop a sign into that picture.

Sauce what else can you say. They need a sauce tour like Hershey's chocolate world. =)
Hope they get the looping coaster put together some time too.

Originally i had planned to only do the EastCoast trip (after doing Europe off course)
This also due to some possible leave problems with work...

As days went on.. i wanted to join the Behemoth more every day.. and as you have seen in the updates so far.. the rest is history..

East Coast Trip time.

First stop of this trip (and for some of the behemoth people the last one) was Sesame Place.

Here's a selection of the pictures i took this day.. i always try to capture the joy people have while joining a TPR tour and off course the coasters and the effect those have on people.
There might be some strange pictures in these selection.. but don't worry.. it's either because they are just too funny.. or they capture the person perfectly (in my eyes)

Hope you like them

Yay! I'm glad to be seeing these updates finally. Sesame was actually a really cool way to start off the trip! It was a social day for us.

The guy with the map wondering through the lines was a character cause he was in the elmos world show.

Ok.. second half of the first day.. (and the official first stop of the East Coast Trip) was Coney Island.

Before the trip... when i thought about Coney Island i thought about New York and Cyclone.. Has seen some pictures of this ride.. but that's about it..

So being there was surreal to me.. something i had been looking forward to for quite some time.. and yet.. while being there it felt surreal..

Even today.. going back through the pictures and selecting some to put them online.. it almost feels like a dream...

These Trips are so worth the money you spent for them.. and there's so much happening and stuff to see.. just enjoy them cause you never know when you might get back to the place you just visited...

anyway.. enough deep thoughts.. time for more fun..

I had never been to this area before so.. here are some pictures...

Hope you enjoy them..

Day 1 Part 2

Dude awesome! The pic of Allison and I in the front seat of Cyclone is classic! I was bracing for pain (I remembered the back seat ride) and then realized it was pretty good in the front.

Oh and with the pic of Jenn and Trent on the Tilt-a-Whirl, the thing was so slow and never spun, so we all just had conversations the entire time. :shockr:
