Hey - well done Jon - I was out and about when the Wild Card game was posted so could only try a few pages to guess on my phone! =)

Whoops, guess the Yeti missed out on this.

Congrats to the person who found it!

I don't know how quickly I could have searched through 700+ pages to find it!
Got Yeti? Expedition Everest does...

Congrats on finding it! As proof that I also found it when I said I did, I edited this old post with a link to the picture at 10am EST. I happened to be looking through the list of Mikestery cards when I found it. I'll have to make sure to complete at least one of the other challenges so I'll be prepared if Big Mike runs the contest again.

However, back to contests I AM eligible for, here is my entry for the 2012 "SUPER EPIC" CONTEST. I hope no one has done Canobie Lake yet. I was doing more shopping on my day off in tax-free New Hampshire, and decided to stop by Canobie Lake. There were construction trucks filled with soil and mulch going in and out, so it looks like they are busy preparing the landscaping for opening day (less than a month away!).

^ Great Job! Way to be persitant! :)


Since you two dominated so much in the Find the Ducky game, you will be happy to know that there will be no other quests in the next contest, just pure Find the Ducky skills, with a twist!


Can't wait to debut "FIND THE DOUBLE DUCKY!"


Peace, Big Mike

Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!!


We start off our 13th week of daily Monday to Friday updates with a bang, a park that no one here on Theme Park Review has ever covered yet!!!


Big Mike had the production staff here at Big Mike World Headquarters double and triple check this fact before we created this episode, and no matter how hard they searched through this massive TPR website, absolutely nothing was found!


Well, then again, who else would bring you these far away parks other than The Mighty Big Man anyway??? That is just what Big Mike does! Plain and simple, the best in the business.


This episode comes to you from South Dakota, where there is a total of ONE coaster in the whole state, and guess who rode it and is bringing back pictures and videos for you to see??


Since this is such a monumental event, letting Theme Park Reviewers get their first glimpse of this previously unseen park, Big Mike went way out of his way this time to actually get a lot of video so to make it extra special!


I hope you enjoy BOONDOCKS in Deadwood South Dakota!!!


Just in case you have not subscribed to The Big Mike Road Show Thread, click the subscribe button on the bottom of the page, Big Mike will be bringing you exclusive stuff like this all year long, as well as awesome things to do other than coasters, and also giving away a free 2013 season pass!!!

It is absolutely crazy not to be subscribed to this thread baby!!!


Peace, Big Mike


PS - Big Mike is giving away a free one week condo stay to one of seven finalists (See them all on Pg 1)! It pays to be a Valuable Big Mike Reader!!!

Here is how the Finals will work:

Everyone has picked a lucky number and it has been logged in on the scoreboard on page #1 of this thread.

Starting Monday April 2nd to Monday April 30th, watch for your numbers to come up on either the Mega Millions, Powerball, or Pick 6 NJ Lotto! You can find all 3 games here: http://www.state.nj.us/lottery/home.shtml

That is 25 drawings for the Finals and the person who has the most points after all 25 games is the Grand Prize Winner! There will be a game every day except Sunday.

If your ball comes up, you get 1 point. If the Powerball or Mega ball matches your number, you get 3 points. If you get both balls in the same drawing, you get 5 points.

That's it, any questions, let me know!

I totally geeked out over that Spider ride. Thanks for posting a park I'd never heard of Mike!

Why do I still have a donkey title???
