^ I thought for sure that we would be too heavy for it and break it. That train ride was the worst part because you were all nice and comfortable in the cool cave and then slowly got pulled into the raging furnace of hell!

Couldn't have explained it better! Although the threat of being left in the cave forever if we didn't get close and personal in the train was a bit scary lol
Time for the most incredible and amazing day of the trip! I really have never had this much fun in my entire life! It started off with a stop at a middle of nowhere Pizza Hut, and then a stop at the St. Louis Arch for a little culture! After a culture experience with the temperature being hotter than the sun, we head over to the world's greatest museum, the CITY MUSEUM! If you don't know what this is, then you haven't been browsing TPR enough! It is like a messed up play ground fun house for adults! If there was any doubt left in the world about how good TPR trips are, this single place erased them once and for all. TIme for the pictures!
Now that's called service!
TPR is friendly, open, and inviting....unless your Hanno.
We miss bus time with KidTums!
At the Arch!
TPR Arch takeover! They don't know what they are in for!
Ok, maybe somebody tipped them off.
Elissa hasn't been violated like this since two minutes ago by Robb!
Next up was scale, the ride! Video to follow!!!
"Please stand clear of the doors. Por favor manténganse alejado de las puertas."
Our space capsules to the future.
Looking out the HUGE windows!
I am so excited!
The view across the crystal 'World of Color' blue Mississippi
On the other side, the Old Courthouse and Cardinals stadium.
What the inside of the arch looks like.
I love Kristen's face in this picture!
Robb de-virginizes Ashley's ears with an obscene version of a kids story.
I had to brave 100 degree heat for this picture!
Self portrait since no one else would come out in the heat!
Uh oh! Robb has his murder/rape face on!
Yes, the Tums factory! Very TPR approved!
Chuck and the rest of TPR arrive at the City Museum!
This place looks so amazing and warped!
Nick climbs the somewhat painful rebar tunnels while Mike Austin shakes his fist at the stupidity of the place.
Fat guy is going to get stuck!
Jake does loves him some balls!
Russell just hopes they have some saws available to cut him out if he gets stuck.
I wonder if they have Song of the South in the vault!
Laura tries the hamster wheel!
All we need now is a hand with a flag, and Marc Summers!
Robb loves going down deep on the slides!
Lou was never to be seen again.
Time for the ten story spiral slide!
Looking down from the top you realize you are really high up!
Did I remind you how hot it was? I was sweating like an Acer at a gravy buffet!
At the top they had a really fun and dangerous rope swing.
You could even climb over the top of the rope.
It's fun being a swinger!
They had the Ferris Wheel open at the top for us!
Jason, Neil, and Brad are loving the City Museum!
Nice picture at the top of the City Museum (also, is the ride being held together on the right by a large safety pin!?)
Don't open the door and jump!
Amy's driving the bus to hell and is talking all of TPR with her (ok, so they really all beat her there).
Of course a Praying Mantis and a slide. What else would you put on top of a building? Geez.
Walking through an Acer's intestine.
Another look at the incredible slides!
Sorry it's a fuzzy picture but I had no clue what everyone was hanging around here for.....
Of course! Virtually the only air conditioner in the whole place!
More bizarre and odd stuff to play around with.
Time for that prostate check!
We called these the Auschwitz tunnels. (really bad I know)
You could run around and escape from people, and they got progressively smaller and smaller.
Dan takes a picture for Jewy.
Jason tries to serenade Dave and Jack
A giant human Kaleidoscope!
Time to climb around the outside oven!
These steel tunnels of death were so much fun!
Trent is waiting for that special moment when someone falls to their death.
Jenn said she was reliving her own birth.
Ashley (ash.1111) thinks he just got a job with Virgin Blue, but it's really this airlines.
Welcome, have a seat. Don't mind the bird crap or spiders.
Ready for takeoff!
Climbing down from the wing.
Some nice sweat art. Amy is going for an abstract Domo mustache, and Dan has a nice heart.
Lots of screwed up stuff to climb around!
Will the fatty fit in the tube?
Barry M. Deeper is used to fitting into tight spaces ;)
Barry M. Deeper has made it through!
Robb really has no fear of heights, it was pretty impressive.
The heights scared the crap out of John, literally.
Here you can kind of see how high it really is. It was probably around 50 feet tall!
Robb crop dusts Stephen!
Looking down through the pretty skinny rebar. It definitely didn't feel secure because they all shook quite a bit and were all rusty.
This was a really steep slide, but ended up not being too scary.
Another view of a totally TPR style playground!
This slide was so fast that it would start burning your back and butt so we sent Barry M. Deeper down it to lube it.
Don't worry Dan, it's ok for you to slide down it. That sticky slippery substance isn't water.
Robb gets ready to make love to my camera.
Amy and Dan try out the steep slide.
Barry M. Deeper shows the No Hands Downward Slide Position.
Back inside we see their rat deterrent. Ever since they put this up, they've never had a problem.
There was a lot of creepy random stuff inside.
See you in a few hours Dan...or ten seconds.
They had a giant "10 years of collecting sweat, urine, and feces" sponge pit!
Here lies Robb Alvey. (you can also see all the bits of nasty sponge dust we were inhaling in this picture)
He's alive! Sorry Elissa.
America's first Food and Fatty!!!
So that's why Dan's favorite person is Queen Nefertiti!
Nom Nom Nom!
Noooo, not Jake! We need some Texas grease for the giant slide!
Hello little boys, I have some special candy up here!
Kristen decides who is allowed on the slide. Looking at this sad group I think she will want to re-think her choices.
Some nice Jake quality Texas Sweat Juice Lubricant!
Another group picked by Kristen. Even Mike Austin made it, and he stated that the selection was 'terrible.' ;)
They had a nice human skate ramp park that you could severely hurt yourself on!
One last climb outside before we leave!
And to finish off this epic day, and to gain back the 10,000 calories we just burned off, WHITE CASTLE!!!
Ten for me, three for Amy!
This fatty easily finished all 10! Next stop is Six Flags St. Louis and one of the hottest TPR Trip days in history!
