I believe the winning name for the 'name the train' contest RMC hosted on facebook was "Gen 1", and plan on changing the numerical value as new editions of the train are made (ie. Gen 2, Gen 3, etc),

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

Really? For a company with such inspiration in their designs, that name is leaving me scratching my head.

Thanks for giving my crew such an amazing experience at Maverick Thursday night. It will go down as one of if not my favorite memory as a ride host.

Thanks to you and the MaveShark crew for working late to give us the amazing ERT. I will never forget it.

Ok, so lets get another mini-update done - Six Flags Great America!
image.jpg
TPR's day at SFGAm started out with some ERT on Raging Bull!
image.jpg
And then we rode the parks newest coaster, X-Flight!
image.jpg
Our awesome day at Six Flags Great America was made even better by Flash Pass!
image.jpg
We were given a backstage tour and got to see lots of "ride stuff" and quite a few unique photo ops of the parks attractions.
image.jpg
Yay for backstage tours!

Current wait 60 minutes? Not for us! :)

KidTums got on her first 4-looping coaster!
image.jpg
That is Viper going totally backwards!
image.jpg
TPDave's interpretation of "Having a Six Flags Day!" :)
image.jpg
Since TPR is into a lot more than just roller coasters, we had Flowrider ERT after the park closed!
image.jpg
Night ERT was great! The park brought in lights and a DJ and we has "Disco Viper!"
image.jpg
Our night comes to an end, and it was an awesome visit to Great America!

TPDave has the right idea, a Six Pints Day makes a Six Flags Day even better, though SFOT would have required a whole lot more pints than SFGAm did to be really enjoyable. Good thing you guys came up with that awesome contingency plan that day ;)
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

And the Texas/Mid-West trip comes to a close with a 3-day finale at Cedar Point!
image.jpg
We have arrived at the final park of the tour, Cedar Point!
image.jpg
And within a few hours we were on a backstage tour of Millennium Force!
image.jpg
Coaster geeks doing what they do best!
image.jpg
Our first ERT session on Maverick is about to begin.
image.jpg
The Maverick... I mean Maveshark crew was freakin' AMAZING!!!
image.jpg
This was easily in our top ten most amazing, energetic ERT sessions ever!
image.jpg
The next morning we were allowed to get VERY up close with Gatekeeper during a backstage tour!
image.jpg
Love the "plinko" game to try to win front of the line passes!
image.jpg
KidTums helped many TPR members get that elusive Jr. Gemini credit!
image.jpg
Gotta love the classics!
image.jpg
I wonder if Kings Island's new Banshee will be as intense as Raptor?
image.jpg
Keyholing across the front entrance of Cedar Point!
image.jpg
To ride or not to ride... That is the question!
image.jpg
The final ERT of the tour will be on Millennium Force!
image.jpg
We are going to add some Illuminocity to Millennium Force in our own special way!
image.jpg
Time to "glow up"" Millennium Force!
image.jpg
It was an amazing final ERT session!
image.jpg
Strange things are happening on Millennium Force tonight!
image.jpg
The red lights in the MF station makes everyone look like a Toaster Strudel!
image.jpg
What an AWESOME way to end the trip!
image.jpg
As a nice bonus, the mechanics were working on Top Thrill Dragster as we were leaving the park, so we all got a peek inside the hydraulic room!
image.jpg
And like epic trips to Cedar Point, they always end at Friday's!
image.jpg
What an AMAZING end to an awesome trip! Thank you to everyone at Cedar Point for the perfect finale to our Texas/Mid-West Tour!

I really enjoyed my time at Cedar point. The ERT was phenomenal on both Maverick and Millenium Force. Thanks to all the ride ops there that made both nights so amazing!

I also have to say that after the Dells Mean Streak was rather kind in comparison. I rode it twice in the front and both times had a relatively smooth if forceless ride. I can now see that while it's layout isn't the best it could be a fun wooden coaster if only they took off the PTCs added some topper track and let the new trains run at full speed.

That's awesome that SFGAm setup the lights and DJ at Viper. Really nice touch.
