So someone wanted a little whoring for the third wish that I was granting, so, here it is :p

This is Kiddieland in Pittsburg Kansas. Kiddieland is located inside Lincoln park where you can find a golf course, putt putt golf, and other park type things you would expect. I haven't located too much info on the park, but the gentleman who runs it absolutely adored the kids that were there and treated them all as if they were his grandchildren. (Yes, he was older) Looked as if he only had one employee and they rotated operations of the handful of rides on property.

So, without further talk, here is a very short whorish report.

Here we are, ready to whore.
Schlitterbahn KC 8.14.11 178.JPG
But first, lets take a quick look around.
Schlitterbahn KC 8.14.11 179.JPG
I couldn't fit :(
Schlitterbahn KC 8.14.11 181.JPG
These were some old school 40's rides
Schlitterbahn KC 8.14.11 182.JPG
And a do it yourself ride
Schlitterbahn KC 8.14.11 189.JPG
Do you like to do it youself? Well, on this train, you can't.
Schlitterbahn KC 8.14.11 184.JPG
Hmmm, what is that back there?
Schlitterbahn KC 8.14.11 185.JPG
Why yes, yes it is! It's a NERD SHOT!
Schlitterbahn KC 8.14.11 187.JPG
Oh yeah, and a kiddie credit. So no, I won't show the picture of me riding it. Sorry. Not gonna happen. Cost me $1.50 to get spun around about 10 times. The old man was having a blast with the kidos that were there.

You know, it really was a neat, very small park in a small town that just was peaceful. Who knows, maybe one day I'll settle down in a small town, but just not anytime soon!

I love donkeys more than me.

No, wouldn't get onto that kind of coaster..... :lol:

The smallest I do are Zierer Tivoli - but only in the "Large" variant - and Vekoma the back seat.

Donkeys are my way of life!

Ahem. Chadster, I requested a trip report of this place with the expectation that I would see photographic evidence of you sinking low in your whoring endeavors. Track layouts can viewed anytime. But watching you wallow in the dark side of this hobby, whoring yourself out and doing the dirty work of credit collecting is what we wanted to see.


Okay, actually, in all seriousness, thank you very much for posting this. I requested it because I was planning on stopping there myself this summer (until life events happened and I moved halfway across the country instead) and wanted to see what I missed. This place looks amazing. There were a few ride models I've never seen before (like the planes in the second photo down and those do-it-yourself cars) and it is really neat to see that such rare rides are still preserved and in working order. It's like a step back in time.

So now I'm wondering: will we get to see the rest of your Colorado adventures soon?

While I still refuse to post that onride photo of me, I will say that had someone chosen the Jersey Shore Whore option, I would have gladly posted multiple pictures of myself whoring, but since no one did, you guys may or may not ever see it :p

^ Eventually, yes! I will run a little wish granting contest again this weekend with more options, so stay tuned, wish granting will continue next week, there *might* even be a VTR option...just sayin'

Re: Chadster's 2011 Trip Diary - Deep South Bash Pt. I

So here it is, the awesome, the amazing, the epic Deep South Bash trip report! First of all I would like to thank everyone at Six Flags who worked to put on an event that, in my opinion, showed up their sister park, Magic Mountain. Their hospitality was over the top with Melinda, the parks President, stopping to chat with us while she was out walking in the park.

Mindbender still beats Shockwave. Dare Devil Dive I thought to be a little tame versus what I was hoping it was to be, but is still a solid ride that is packing the public in with 2 hour waits. The ride crew on DDD was on their game pushing trains out as fast as the GP would let them. While I'm not a total fan of fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo, this is a ride they may want to consider it on as the ops spent most of their time trying to get people to put their crap up.

Overall, this is one event I would love to see happen again next year. The time of year brought lighter GP crowds and the weather was awesome! If you didn't attend this event, you missed out!

This will be a longer Photo TR than I would normally do because this place was so awesome and we all had such a good time. I'll start off with the Haunted Mansion tour! Yes, we got to walk up into the scenery and get personal with the animatronics!


Oh, and if you are in any of these photos and would like an original fully watermarked copy for your collection, message me with your e-mail address and I will send it to you!

Up before the sun to attend one of the best TPR events of the year!
Deep South Bash 2011 006.JPG
The park teased us the night before with Goliath, and they continued to tease us as they added the trains and tested.
Deep South Bash 2011 008.JPG
These guys are all lined up to get their tickets at the ticket booth.
Deep South Bash 2011 010.JPG
From the parks newest employee!

The gathering of the geeks.

Robb just asked eveyone if they would like FREE BEER and wine. Looks like majority rules.
Deep South Bash 2011 025.JPG
"This lanyard has magical powers, is very durable, and if you lose it, no FREE BEER or ERT for you!"
Deep South Bash 2011 029.JPG
The pearly gates have opened and everyone is running to the breakfast table
Deep South Bash 2011 033.JPG
Good gravy people!
Deep South Bash 2011 031.JPG
NERD!! Oh. Wait. That's ME! And thanks to Jake for the assist on the photo!
Deep South Bash 2011 036.JPG
So after my #400 on DDD, we made our way to a Club TPR Exclusive.
Deep South Bash 2011 145.JPG
A walk-thru tour of Haunted Mansion! Membership has its privy's
Deep South Bash 2011 039.JPG
In we go thru the rear entrance
Deep South Bash 2011 042.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 050.JPG
They let us walk anywhere we wanted as long as we didn't cross over. As you can see the ride was drained, but they had all of the effects turned on.
Deep South Bash 2011 051.JPG
So, since everyone gave me so much crap about not floating through the mansion back in May, I not only rode it twice, but also walked thru it, so there. :p
Deep South Bash 2011 052.JPG
You float from this way. I think. Basically we entered just after the photo op at the front of the ride.
Deep South Bash 2011 054.JPG
The middle dude was yanking on the front dudes pants trying put something long and round inside.
Deep South Bash 2011 057.JPG
This is a really tripped up ride.
Deep South Bash 2011 058.JPG
This is where we took that group photo posted on the offical DSB thread.
Deep South Bash 2011 059.JPG
My, what a big tounge you have
Deep South Bash 2011 060.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 061.JPG
We are all still taking it in, trying to figure out who dreams this stuff up.
Deep South Bash 2011 066.JPG
Open wide and say ahhhhhhh
Deep South Bash 2011 067.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 070.JPG
We got up close and personal with this attraction. But not near as up close and personal as R.D. did with Mindbender. Want to see how close, come back for the next part to see.
Deep South Bash 2011 074.JPG
This is where you turn and go into the creepy part.
Deep South Bash 2011 079.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 090.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 098.JPG
This dragon thingy...
Deep South Bash 2011 100.JPG
is controlled by all this
Deep South Bash 2011 103.JPG
Boat lift used to lift boats that are dropped off and pulled out behind those black doors. Yeah, true backstage tour.
Deep South Bash 2011 106.JPG
We went through the door and walked in here.
Deep South Bash 2011 110.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 118.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 120.JPG
This is the crew that sings the monster anthem
Deep South Bash 2011 130.JPG
Bye! But wait. There's more!
Deep South Bash 2011 132.JPG
This is the reservoir for Monster Mansion
Deep South Bash 2011 135.JPG
This boat was too scared to enter the mansion.
Deep South Bash 2011 134.JPG
Out the back of the Mansion we found Goliath waiting for us!
Deep South Bash 2011 138.JPG
Bunch of TPR members, I mean dummies.
Deep South Bash 2011 143.JPG
But not for us! The tour of Monster Mansion was Epic, but the park was just getting started! Part II coming soon where we will have some lunch, go on a photo walk back of the entire park, and more!

Here we go with Part 2 - Photo Walkback
Deep South Bash 2011 153.JPG
So after the mansion tour we had tons of ERT on DDD, Mindbender, Cyclone, Scorcher, and Batman!
Deep South Bash 2011 165.JPG
The drop was good.
Deep South Bash 2011 169.JPG
Looks like Adam was having a good time.
Deep South Bash 2011 176.JPG
Double shot!
Deep South Bash 2011 196.JPG
But the real reason we came to DSB was for Mindbender! YAY!
Deep South Bash 2011 182.JPG
This ride delivers! Ride manufactures today just can't seem to match the quality of what the pope of coasters could do.
Deep South Bash 2011 186.JPG
Full of Awesomeness!
Deep South Bash 2011 194.JPG
This is another reason we come to bash events, empty queues!
Deep South Bash 2011 188.JPG
Empty Trains!
Deep South Bash 2011 198.JPG
And an empty park, yea!
Deep South Bash 2011 203.JPG
I just like this shot, so I stuck it in.
Deep South Bash 2011 208.JPG
Another creation from the Pope. Best. Enterprise Wheel. Evar..
Deep South Bash 2011 217.JPG
If you look close, you can see an arrow train and an arrowplane in this pic
Deep South Bash 2011 247.JPG
Everyone lined up for lunch and chowed down on some of the best food at a SF's event I've ever had.
Deep South Bash 2011 248.JPG
Om nom nom nom
Deep South Bash 2011 243.JPG
and this is what we had in our backyard while chowing down
Deep South Bash 2011 264.JPG
So it's photo walkback time. How many Club TPR shirts do you spot?
Deep South Bash 2011 266.JPG
I gave up counting, but I did manage to get this shot of GASM
Deep South Bash 2011 297.JPG
Shots you just can't get anywhere else but on a trip or at a bash!
Deep South Bash 2011 326.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 327.JPG
Nerds walking.
Deep South Bash 2011 334.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 347.JPG
Judging by the looks on their faces, the water challenge should be, well, challenging.
Deep South Bash 2011 359.JPG
GP just hanging out.
Deep South Bash 2011 367.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 368.JPG
Guys, NO! We are NOT touring the food warehouse!
Deep South Bash 2011 379.JPG
These nerds are waiting for...
Deep South Bash 2011 397.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 401.JPG
They raise chickens in here for that awesome chicken sandwhich we had at lunch.
Deep South Bash 2011 402.JPG
What's in here? Fresh vegies?
Deep South Bash 2011 405.JPG
The girl in the "Resource Protection" office was waving to us. Can some please explain what the heck resource protection is? Is it the prevention of employees from leaving? EPA office? Theft?
Deep South Bash 2011 415.JPG
Except for us!
Deep South Bash 2011 417.JPG
Wile riding his rocket on the wall of fame.
Deep South Bash 2011 418.JPG
Line for the mens room?
Deep South Bash 2011 429.JPG
Dude, you have to have all of your limbs to ride. Too soon?
Deep South Bash 2011 433.JPG
We got some cool shots of Goliath!
Deep South Bash 2011 465.JPG
The park let us spread out a good distance as a group to allow everyone to get the shots they wanted. No cattle herding here!
Deep South Bash 2011 472.JPG
This guy apparently thinks he's riding Mindbender.
Deep South Bash 2011 480.JPG
Choo Choo. The people on the train were like WTF?
Deep South Bash 2011 484.JPG
Zach was hanging with the park hotties. But you can see what I mean, they really let us spread out to take nerd shots.
Deep South Bash 2011 493.JPG
Dive! Dive! Dive!
Deep South Bash 2011 486.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 491.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 507.JPG
What used to be here? Hmmmmm.....

Ok, so that's all of Part II. What? No Mindbender Porn you say? Well, I'm saving the best for Part III, the final installment.

Final Installment!
Deep South Bash 2011 523.JPG
Let's get up close and personal with Mindbender!
Deep South Bash 2011 528.JPG
I'm talking REALLY up close!
Deep South Bash 2011 535.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 540.JPG
The second train was undergoing some renovations. As a result, the line for mindbender was upwards of 90 minutes.
Deep South Bash 2011 543.JPG
Through the trees!
Deep South Bash 2011 552.JPG
Did I mention we got close, close enough to reach out and touch someone!
Deep South Bash 2011 561.JPG
Loopy! Full of force, full of awesome.
Deep South Bash 2011 575.JPG
Transfer nerd shot!
Deep South Bash 2011 578.JPG
Rudie giving this oh sh!t section of the transfer track a complete inspection.
Deep South Bash 2011 583.JPG
Make love to it!
Deep South Bash 2011 586.JPG
That's the look of a man who is satisifed. Oddly enough, he had to burn one off afterwards.
Deep South Bash 2011 594.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 605.JPG
This yellow thing makes Mindbender go vroom
Deep South Bash 2011 625.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 629.JPG
They were adding boats to the rapids. I must say, this is one of the better rapids rides I've been on. It got us wet, forceful, and fun!
Deep South Bash 2011 632.JPG
The Relax-o-nator!
Deep South Bash 2011 634.JPG
Arrow log time! I think this was the third one built.
Deep South Bash 2011 638.JPG
I wasn't going to ride Georgia Cyclone, but Sam talked me into it. We hit it in the magic seat and it wasn't too bad. But some of the expressions on these people faces tell me they had worse seats than we did.
Deep South Bash 2011 645.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 651.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 654.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 673.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 664.JPG
Arco was up and running, the park made good on their promise to try and get it up for us, and they delivered!
Deep South Bash 2011 683.JPG
So it was TPR Quest and FREE BEER time, we had singing, we had theft, we had fried pies and beer, and we had...
Deep South Bash 2011 675.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 679.JPG
Deep South Bash 2011 680.JPG
This quest business is really screwed up. Want to know how screwed up? You gotta show up!
Deep South Bash 2011 692.JPG
So quest was over, the park handed out goodie bags that put the icing on a cake that was already iced. Full of awesome stuff. I can't thank them enough for all they did for us!

Now it was time for evening ERT! Ninja looks so good, but is sooo bad. Actually with the arrow trains, it rides pretty good.
Deep South Bash 2011 697.JPG
So we practiced for the water challenge.
Deep South Bash 2011 702.JPG
Empty? Go figure. Water challenge was awesome, we all got soaked, Robb was dumping water on people, but later got dumped on by Brad (Six Flags guru who set this whole thing up), but most important, we had fun!
Deep South Bash 2011 704.JPG
What, that's all? Yep, that's all folks!

Hope you enjoyed reading as much as I did at the park. Next time, join us!

It all started with a donkey
