Photo TR : Legoland and another HHN evening

Postby Groteslurf » Sat Dec 28, 2013 12:30 pm

Legoland Florida. I never made it Cypress Gardens so this was an all new park to me.

Of course, we arrived before park opening time

The evening before, our good friend Roxanne flew in from Texas and of course she joined us in all the fun.

Photo TR : Epcot

Postby Groteslurf » Wed Jan 01, 2014 12:23 pm

Thanks for all the comments.

Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow, I remember loving the park during my previous visit because of Test Track and the food and wine festival. We knew Test Track would be closed during our visit this year, but we also knew the food and wine festival would take place again.

Right after waking up, EB found this insect at our pool. I swear, if the BBQ would have still been hot, he would have eaten it ;-)

Walking around the lake in all the differente countries is just awesome

We rode Ellen too. We wanted to escape the room after 5 minutes because it was just boring but we didn't find the exit. Went back to this room just in time to move to the next room and sit down in the 'cars'. Man, I was so surprised when the 'cars' started moving.

^thanks.

Busch Gardens Tampa : This was also my first visit to Busch Gardens since we didn't make it up there in 2004.
IMG_2643.JPG
Since we were going to stay late for Howl O Scream, we didn't arrive by opening time.
IMG_2644.JPG
i didn't dare to stick my finger in ... ;-)

Or course we had these passes. And we were very lucky we had because this was a Saturday and the lines for the mazes were very long. 2 hours and more if I remember well
IMG_2715.JPG
IMG_2745.JPG
Also included in our passes, were some tickets to play games. Nice intermezzo
IMG_2747.JPG
We didn't win anything though
IMG_2764.jpg
We found the mazes here SO much better than the mazes at HHN

This one almost gave me an heart attack
IMG_2783.JPG
IMG_2784.JPG
Every maze at Howl O Scream was simply better than the ones at HHN. The event in a all was just better IMO. Better vibe, better scare actors, better mazes, more surprises in the mazes, ...

Looks like HOS was great again last year. Ugh, looking at all these photos just makes me wish it was Halloween time again. Just curious, what filter setting are you using on some of the photos?
