I'm almost done with the updates..

So here's another one.

Universal and Halloween Horror Nights.

Looking through my pictures.. i had the feeling that some were missing on my computer... I'll have to do some searching to see where those have ended up (or if my mind is playing tricks on me) I might present them later on in another update.. if they are interesting enough.

Anyway.. Most of the pictures are related to Horror Nights..

Hope you like them..

this walk back was just amazing. Hearing all the stories behind it.. made it even more interesting during the night
DSC_0313.JPG
most of my walkback pictures failed... i just don't like using flash.. and well.. i can only blame myself
DSC_0321.JPG
a park map always comes in handy

The chicks from the HBO series (later movie) Sex and the City. All they do is have sex, buy shoes, and talk about sex.

*Instant Flashback* Dude thanks for taking pics because I forgot to most of the trip considering I was already in Florida earlier in the year. That and I had a new camcorder to play with lol.

Anyway, amazing pics as always. Can't wait for more!

Awesome pictures as always, Hanno. Glad you got pictures of us on the Skycoaster. I was seriously terrified on that thing.

Then I had those monsters surround me in that maze at HHH. I got away then turned around and you were laughing your A** off!

Good Times.....

Brad

Time for another update. I need to finish this report someday...


Day 5: Busch Gardens Tampa

I need to take notes during future trips cause i don't remember much of this visit.
After Busch Gardens Europe is was really looking forward to this visit... but for some reason.. (as i'm typing this update) i do prefer europe to tampa..

Ok.. Sheikra looked way better then Griffon, Rhina Rally was a lot of fun... but it felt like something was missing..

I'll have to check the place again.. someday.. and see if my opinion changes then...

anyway.. picture time..
