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!
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...
..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!
This is our ultimate reason for coming here, Silver Comet!
This is where the journey begins!
The Crouse family is very excited for their ride =)
Silver Comet is actually one of the, if not the smoothest CCI's I have ever been on!
Which is kind of surprising, as the layout is very unique and focuses on a wide variety of turns and lateral forces. Good ride!
The park did have some wild looking flats, but we were on a mission.
heading down the main midway...
This is the line for the wild mouse...ught oh...
But I have to give the ops credit, they were pushing out trains really fast.
After about 15-20 minutes, it was almost our turn!
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.
It had a huge line, but isn't this log flume famous on TPR for some crazy amounts of wetness?
And if I'm not mistaken, I think this was one of the first star flyers to go in anywhere.
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!
I did manage to sneak a few shots of Silver Comet though =)
This last ground hugging turn was the crazy point of the ride!
Amber isn't trying to hop over the fence...but just showing off her skills ;)
The park really does have a weird mix of nicer areas and regular theme park midways.
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.
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!
On the short bus ride we were handed our AWESOME event badges!
Here you can see all we have in store for today. TPR events are simply unbeatable in the Theme Park Industry.
Just follow the giant *** B&M!
I'm not going to lie, I was just as much excited for Behemoth as I was Leviathan.
However, Leviathan is just massive. Pictures don't do justice!
First ones here!
I thought the park was beautiful right upon entering. This opinion never really changed ;)
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 =)
Longest lift hill in existence. Check.
This is why TPR events rule! No line for a brand new B&M giga coaster. 3 trains runnings. UNLIMITED rides!
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 ;)
Wild Beast was having issues in the morning...so the park opened Bat for us! Love getting them credits out of the way.
Fly was also up and running. Cha-ching!
We also were able to "swing" by Vortex ;)
Not many of these left. Enjoyed a nice forceful ride in the rear
Oh yeah, did I mention this thing dominates the park?
How about a 5th credit for morning ERT???
Awesome indoor mine train!
Back over at Leviathan ERT...holy crap look at all the GP coming!!!
At the end of ERT Robb had a surprise...MORE ERT! Silver Streak was open just for us.
Coaster #6 of the morning.
Good news! This was the best Jr invert I have been on that still has the original restraints!
Not knowing about the perk later, a few of us got the Taxi Jam credit with KT :)
This was also right next door. They have an impressive collection of kids rides!
These jr woodies are really cute, good fun, and perfect for kids.
Now lets move on to the big boy rides...I thought this path was interesting.
What the hell is this???
It looks so innocent! And luckily it was actually pretty fun! Number 9 and we are already halfway home!
LOL! I can't even imagine...
Skyrider's queue also provided one of the only views of Vortex. Pretty
Time to ride the Mighty Canadian.
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!
Moving on to the 'far end' of the park.
Sledge Hammer was open! I was pretty much expecting this one of a kind attraction to be closed but it ran great all day!
While not the most insane ride, it was definitely unique and I'm happy I got to ride it. Nice break from the coasters.
We will get to you later Windseeker.
Being credit whoring professionals, we went to Time Warp next (it wasn't on Fast Lane)
I can almost feel the pain from here.
Nice transfer track! Anyways after about a 20 minute wait, coaster #11!
Should we ride Behemoth next?
Nah, how about Stunt Coaster first. Look at the line we just skip!
I bet you haven't seen this picture before ;) 11th coaster of the morning.
Lets just skip the 1 hr line for Behemoth too!
Holy CRAP! Behemoth was amazing as far as B&Ms go. Definitely my favorite ride in the park.
But then it came time to do this...we have no choice.
At least it looks really nice :P
We also waltzed right by the line for this one. 14/16 in the books, 2 more to go!
Dragon Fire! Deja Vu moment.
Yeah, Leviathan pretty much craps all over Dragon Fire...but I like it!
and drumroll.....Wild Beast was now open! This completed our full circle around the park and all 16 coasters before lunch!!!
Just skipping lines all day. I can't stress it enough...BUY FAST LANE!!!
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!
Leviathan looks pretty boss from here, we will get back to you soon.
Oh yeah, Wild Best won crew of the year for Drop Tower? The rides are alive.
It was around noon and Leviathan was still the busiest area of the park. Eats the GP up!
There was also some sort of trampoline show going on. I love tramps ;)
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.
Always trying to keep YOU entertained! Now with more Ice Bat!
The world would be a better place if Dave programmed our iPods - Derwood
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.
