After seeing the water they splashed down into, I really hope everyone has been vaccinated.

I gotta say, I thought the High-Five element looked very, very cool, but these two shots go WAY past my expectations for its awesomeness. Yeah, want dat bad.

"Music Virus" = "Disco Fever" ?

Fantastic updates!

If that first photo is not in Gravity Group's IAAPA booth this November, I will be very shocked! :)

Jason - Unfortunately, after riding many of us have concerns about how time will treat this coaster, we'll see shortly hoe Fireball held up.

This might be my favorite coaster photo ever.

Really hope I get the chance to try this some day. I highly doubt any US park would build one, given how scared everyone here is of everything.

Yes!

Also, I've never been on a TPR trip, but I feel like these high-five shots sum up how awesome the trips are (especially from everything I've read/seen in so many TR's). These pics totally capture the ultimate "we're having a blast on this ride" expressions!
Top 5 Steel: Bizarro (SFNE), Top Thrill (CP), i305 (KD), Kumba (BGT), Cali. Screamin' (DCA)
Top 5 Wood: El Toro (SFGAdv), Boulder Dash (Lake Compounce), Lightning Racer (Hershey), Beast (KI), Yankee Cannonball (Canobie Lake)
Total Credits: 141

TPR had an awesome visit!

Image
While we were on the Knock-Off SLC, we noticed something across the street...another looping coaster!

Image
We talked to the people at Florland, and they told us that the original park was "Phase 1", the new water park that just opened was "Phase 2", and this third gate which will open sometime in 2013 is "Phase 3"

Image
We got to walk around the park that is under construction.

Image
There is also going to be what appears as a Roller Skater type of coaster.

Image
One of these crazy flats was under construction.

Image
This looks like some sort of spinning coaster.

Image
More of the new Floraland third gate construction.

Image
Pirate ship and other stuff.

Image
More construction pics.

Image
The giant ferris wheel looks pretty complete.

Image
More of the double-loop, double corkscrew coaster.

Image
It's a small coaster, but it's totally gravity driven fun!
