Sorry about not having photos from last night, we were having WAY too much fun in the pool....but you'll have to buy the "adults only" DVD to get that footage!!! :lover:

Anyway, so we started the day off at Cypress Gardens and then ended up at Busch Gardens and their Howl-O-Scream event. GREAT DAY!!!!!

Onto some photos.....
"Hey guys...what park are we at?"
"Um...not sure.....Michigan's Adventure?"
First Aid station with skull & crossbones flags. Heh! Glad to see they have a sense of humor!
Yay! Roller Skater credit!
Everyone gets a woodie credit!
How many hurricanes was it again?
Cameron "I don't ride kiddie coasters" was the biggest whore of us all!!!!
The had one of them spinny, spinny raft ride thingys.
It spun so much it made us all stupid...even MORE stupid!
They are smiling now.....but not for long!
Cypress Gardens was dressed up for their Halloween event "Phobia." Next year, we'll add this to our itinerary!
On the way to Busch Gardens, we found a "note" that entertained us all for the next two days! =)
Yay! Busch Gardens!!!!
Kumba had a nice new paint job.
Still one of the *BEST* Roller Coasters in the world!!!
You gotta be an "ArrowFanMan" to appreciate Python.
SheiKra....Awesome! Busch Gardens Tampa has one of the best selection of coasters ANYWHERE!
Jahan has "Kumba Hair."
"Two free balls for buying the VIP passes....." Reed's balls are blue.
Control-Alt-Deseased kept us entertained until the park opened. And we kept talking about it for the next two days. It left quite an impression on us!
Martha Stewart? "It's a MAN baby!!!!"
TPR was very color coordinated tonight!
Elissa was our un-official tour guide for tonight. "Everyone cough up an extra 5 bucks!"
Death, destruction, and despair...people dying everywhere!
Scorpion at dusk makes Joe quiver and shake...oh, wait a minute...he does that anyway!
Don't worry guys.....scare actors don't jump out if you're wearing a pink shirt....
There can never be enough T & A at Halloween events!
Keep the hot chicks coming!!!!
The TPR gang says "Thanks Busch for a great night!"
Full photo update and videos coming soon!

Looks like y'all are having a fun time. So... I'm curious... what was the Control Alt Deceased show about? Looks pretty good and interesting.

Hey, we just got home and wanted to say we had an awesome time! Thanks for all the planning Elissa and Robb, it was another great Orlando Halloween weekend. It was great to meet some of the other members as well as to see some of our old friends. Later tonight I will post our pictures, but until then have a safe flight gang!

begin photos

Day 1 - Disney
Day 2 - Universal
It wouldn't be a Florida trip without a stop in Gainesville.
Here I am in front of Disney's shopping district, the Mall Kingdom
I suppose we could ride this...
omg, a pic of me with Soren NOT in the German Pavillion =)
The Yeti caused me to grow an exhaust pipe
yea, no new credit for me since we rode the right side again
Loading a train with Robb and I on the same side made me a little uneasy
At one point, we hoped over to MGM and did several things. Sweet car show included.
one of the best movies ever!
now only if they could replace that with a saturn =)
oh yea, btw this part is from EPCOT ;-)
It was Soren's birthday.. HORRAY!
I love meat... don't misinterpret that.
The lighthouse, as never before seen publicly
here is what it would look like with my face instead of the IOA logo... scary, eh?
What am I doing in Camp Jurasic?
yeah, I finally got my flyers credit
YAY the Dragons are running! I'll sit back here for a while waiting for the others to catch up
This is why I managed about 8 rides in the morning
They don't look TOO wet!
yea, it may not be our Dino, but he does have a bigger mouth than me
mmmmm.. Mythos
pretty awesome
horray for new credits ;-)
The trolley ride was only AWESOME!!
If only I had time, it would be funny to make it look like Dave is swallowing hte water
Hulk is still really sweet
Meanwhile, in another Marvel Superhero Island location, Melanie found some balls to play with
I skipped Ripsaw, even though its very awesome
... and totally a credit ;-)
I've never taken that shot, so its at least exclusive to me!
I still choose Fire
Cameron chose Ice... he sucks
I didn't take many photos at HHN, but I just wanted to comment that Bill and Ted's was awesome.. and horray for new friends
Goodnight Universal! And that concoludes the first 2 days of the report for me :-)

Howl-O-Scream is much better that Halloween Horror Nights. I went to bot and HHN was crowded and u couldnt get in the haunted houses or some of the rides, but HOS on the other hand was very open and much scarier(I almost pissed my pants :omg: ). I rode all the rides 4 times and walked all the haunted houses at Busch Gardens Africa. Overall, Howl-O-Scream is much better, hands down.

I don't think many people would agree with you. The actors at HHN work so much better than the ones at HOS.

I mean, yea its crowded, but being from Florida you can be a little more selective as to which night you choose to go, and damn them for being popular :Pr
