Fitting in the scambler was epic. We were not all flat on the seat!

One of the nice things on these reports is seeing pictures of some of the things I missed.

Getting caught up on this. Excellent so far, Garbles! Cannot believe you got three people in a scrambler car. And lived.

Time to update this thread! Now that I am settled in with school I should have a lot more free time! Tonight I'm going to start with Martin's Fantasy Island and start part 1 of Leviathan Bash at Canada's Wonderland, the highlight and main reason behind the trip!

After Darien Lake Robb and Elissa worked it out that we could stop by Martin's Fantasy Island to at least get the credits, which is greatly appreciated. The park was also nice enough to backdoor us on to Silver Comet! Thanks guys =) . As we were there a short time I didn't get too many photos, but here is what I did capture!

And here we are at Martin's Fantasy Island! Located between Buffalo and Niagara Falls on the grand...you guessed it...island!
DSC_0070.JPG
This is what you see when you enter the park. It's very interesting...you can go to the left through a sort of main street area, or head right and...
DSC_0074.JPG
..take a nice leisurely walk on a path kind of far out there. Also I can't remember the gentlemen in the hat's name, but many thanks for greeting us, giving us info about the park, and walking us back!
DSC_0076.JPG
This is our ultimate reason for coming here, Silver Comet!
DSC_0078.JPG
This is where the journey begins!
DSC_0080.JPG
The Crouse family is very excited for their ride =)
DSC_0082.JPG
Silver Comet is actually one of the, if not the smoothest CCI's I have ever been on!
DSC_0084.JPG
Which is kind of surprising, as the layout is very unique and focuses on a wide variety of turns and lateral forces. Good ride!
DSC_0087.JPG
The park did have some wild looking flats, but we were on a mission.
DSC_0088.JPG
heading down the main midway...
DSC_0090.JPG
This is the line for the wild mouse...ught oh...
DSC_0091.JPG
But I have to give the ops credit, they were pushing out trains really fast.
DSC_0094.JPG
After about 15-20 minutes, it was almost our turn!
DSC_0097.JPG
A group of TPR members enjoys their ride! This mouse is kind of middle of the pack for me. Not bad but not super crazy! And with that we had the last stateside credit of the trip.
DSC_0095.JPG
It had a huge line, but isn't this log flume famous on TPR for some crazy amounts of wetness?
DSC_0098.JPG
And if I'm not mistaken, I think this was one of the first star flyers to go in anywhere.
DSC_0099.JPG
Since we were the last riders on the Wild Mouse we didn't really have time for any other attractions, but I heard some people got a chance to ride this!
DSC_0100.JPG
I did manage to sneak a few shots of Silver Comet though =)
DSC_0103.JPG
DSC_0104.JPG
This last ground hugging turn was the crazy point of the ride!
DSC_0107.JPG
Amber isn't trying to hop over the fence...but just showing off her skills ;)
DSC_0108.JPG
The park really does have a weird mix of nicer areas and regular theme park midways.
DSC_0109.JPG
However it was time to leave through the other side of the park near the entrance. I would definitely like to come back and explore here another day and give Silver Comet a few more spins.
DSC_0110.JPG
Back on the bus...and off to Canada!!!

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Amber where is all that flexibility you have, can't see it in this photo. All that money wasted on dance!

Thanks Garbles

Ok, time to finally post Canada's Wonderland!

As many of you know this was the main event for the Leviathon trip and the day was open to any TPR members to make up the amazing Leviathan Bash! I took a ton of photos this day (and Derek used my camera for a bit, too ;) ) so I will break it up into 3 parts!

Part 1: Morning ERT and 16 credits before Lunch! (BELOW)

Part 2: Scavenger Hunt and Backstage Tour

Part 3: Leviathan Porn and Night ERT!
DSC_0111.JPG
On the short bus ride we were handed our AWESOME event badges!
DSC_0112.JPG
Here you can see all we have in store for today. TPR events are simply unbeatable in the Theme Park Industry.
DSC_0113.JPG
Just follow the giant *** B&M!
DSC_0117.JPG
I'm not going to lie, I was just as much excited for Behemoth as I was Leviathan.
DSC_0121.JPG
However, Leviathan is just massive. Pictures don't do justice!
DSC_0126.JPG
First ones here!
DSC_0132.JPG
I thought the park was beautiful right upon entering. This opinion never really changed ;)
DSC_0137.JPG
As soon as we made it over to Leviathan she was already running and ready for us! Got to love parks who have everything together =)
DSC_0138.JPG
Longest lift hill in existence. Check.
DSC_0141.JPG
This is why TPR events rule! No line for a brand new B&M giga coaster. 3 trains runnings. UNLIMITED rides!
DSC_0146.JPG
As for the ride, I really liked the drop (one of the best anywhere) and the first 2 or 3 elements. We will wait until night time to make a final decision ;)
DSC_0147.JPG
Wild Beast was having issues in the morning...so the park opened Bat for us! Love getting them credits out of the way.
DSC_0149.JPG
Fly was also up and running. Cha-ching!
DSC_0152.JPG
We also were able to "swing" by Vortex ;)
DSC_0153.JPG
Not many of these left. Enjoyed a nice forceful ride in the rear
DSC_0160.JPG
Oh yeah, did I mention this thing dominates the park?
DSC_0161.JPG
How about a 5th credit for morning ERT???
DSC_0166.JPG
Awesome indoor mine train!
DSC_0175.JPG
Back over at Leviathan ERT...holy crap look at all the GP coming!!!
DSC_0176.JPG
At the end of ERT Robb had a surprise...MORE ERT! Silver Streak was open just for us.
DSC_0198.JPG
Coaster #6 of the morning.
DSC_0201.JPG
Good news! This was the best Jr invert I have been on that still has the original restraints!
DSC_0185.JPG
Not knowing about the perk later, a few of us got the Taxi Jam credit with KT :)

#7!
DSC_0190.JPG
This was also right next door. They have an impressive collection of kids rides!
DSC_0195.JPG
These jr woodies are really cute, good fun, and perfect for kids.
DSC_0202.JPG
Now lets move on to the big boy rides...I thought this path was interesting.
DSC_0203.JPG
What the hell is this???
DSC_0205.JPG
It looks so innocent! And luckily it was actually pretty fun! Number 9 and we are already halfway home!
DSC_0209.JPG
LOL! I can't even imagine...
DSC_0211.JPG
Skyrider's queue also provided one of the only views of Vortex. Pretty
DSC_0214.JPG
Time to ride the Mighty Canadian.
DSC_0215.JPG
Coaster #10!
DSC_0218.JPG
And this is about all you can see from the park...but it was neat how it ran through the water park. Not a bad ride!
DSC_0221.JPG
Moving on to the 'far end' of the park.
DSC_0222.JPG
Sledge Hammer was open! I was pretty much expecting this one of a kind attraction to be closed but it ran great all day!
DSC_0227.JPG
While not the most insane ride, it was definitely unique and I'm happy I got to ride it. Nice break from the coasters.
DSC_0223.JPG
We will get to you later Windseeker.
DSC_0230.JPG
Being credit whoring professionals, we went to Time Warp next (it wasn't on Fast Lane)
DSC_0232.JPG
I can almost feel the pain from here.
DSC_0235.JPG
Nice transfer track! Anyways after about a 20 minute wait, coaster #11!
DSC_0239.JPG
Should we ride Behemoth next?
DSC_0241.JPG
Nah, how about Stunt Coaster first. Look at the line we just skip!
DSC_0243.JPG
I bet you haven't seen this picture before ;) 11th coaster of the morning.
DSC_0245.JPG
Lets just skip the 1 hr line for Behemoth too!
DSC_0250.JPG
Holy CRAP! Behemoth was amazing as far as B&Ms go. Definitely my favorite ride in the park.
DSC_0254.JPG
But then it came time to do this...we have no choice.
DSC_0255.JPG
At least it looks really nice :P
DSC_0258.JPG
We also waltzed right by the line for this one. 14/16 in the books, 2 more to go!
DSC_0264.JPG
Dragon Fire! Deja Vu moment.
DSC_0270.JPG
Yeah, Leviathan pretty much craps all over Dragon Fire...but I like it!
DSC_0278.JPG
and drumroll.....Wild Beast was now open! This completed our full circle around the park and all 16 coasters before lunch!!!
DSC_0280.JPG
Just skipping lines all day. I can't stress it enough...BUY FAST LANE!!!
DSC_0284.JPG
We were pretty stoked by our accomplishment...new credit record? Try doing this at CP or SFMM LOL. Our unstoppable team was me and Amber, Chad, Bob, and Soupy!
DSC_0285.JPG
Leviathan looks pretty boss from here, we will get back to you soon.
DSC_0287.JPG
Oh yeah, Wild Best won crew of the year for Drop Tower? The rides are alive.
DSC_0289.JPG
It was around noon and Leviathan was still the busiest area of the park. Eats the GP up!
DSC_0291.JPG
There was also some sort of trampoline show going on. I love tramps ;)
DSC_0293.JPG
Munch munch munch, time for lunch!
DSC_0296.JPG
Would you choose Leviathan or food?
DSC_0299.JPG
We ate and played TPR quest!
DSC_0300.JPG
"Get me away from this nonsense!"

That is it for part 1, more coming soon!!!

I've never not seen this park be anything but insanely busy, so hooray for Fastlane! I really wish every park would add some sort of system like this, it just makes a day at the park so much easier and stress free.

I've been curious to hear someones review of Leviathan. I mean I have an idea of what people think about it since I heard some talk about it while on the Hotness tour. But I have not really heard much on it.

I also agree, fast lane is the way to go.
