Loved Avalanche, that thing just flew around the track.

I have great memories of getting my ride, then spending a few hours at the Mexican restaurant Pedro's nearby drinking Mug-o-ritas and running into the ride mechanics who fixed it after the lightning storm. Good times.

Omg, it is that time again.

Time for the update about the last day of the trip..

Day 11: Valleyfair

Home to Renegade (and some other interesting/fun coasters)
But mostly Renegade (as far as i can remember at this moment)

Had a blast during the day, loved the ERT session and backstage tour and then the evening arrived..
No pictures (taken by me) and a voice that was gone for a couple of days.

It's been a while since i had such a blast.

Enough talk, time for some photo's.

Hope you like them, feel free to comment and thank you for reading.

Before i forget, thanks to everybody i talked to, interacted with and basically made this trip awesome (yet again)
Let's not forget Robb & Elissa who make sure that all you have to do is don't miss the bus ;)
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Renegade has to have one of the coolest drops on a wooden coaster I've ever seen. Great pictures!
