Hey everyone! I apologize for the delay in getting an update done. Some of you may have noticed we've had some minor server issues in the past 24 hours. Everything is fixed and posting photos works once again!

So our next park was Himeji Central Park....
During our server down time we have changed the site name to "Them Park Review."
We are cruisin' Central Park's East Sieeed.

We started our day off with ERT on Hurricane. Jeff is counting this as 4 credits.
The first drop and the loop were REALLY good!
Then it was somewhere in the corkscrew section you got that really good Donkey Punch!

This is the happy face BEFORE the Donkey Punch.
And here in the middle of a BATMAN CLONE!!!

"Yup, it beat the crap out of me....but I LOVED it!"
Any ride where they give you a shotgun is cool with us!

Next up was the Jetcosater with comfy seats but no legroom.
Ryan rides by himself because he has no friends. No, seriously....I'm not joking. Look at him. Would you be friends with a guy that has hair that looks like that?

The "Shoking" horror museum. Yeah. "Shoking." No, that's not a typo, it's pronounced "Show King"

Photo by Chuck CFC
First encounter in the Shoking Horror Museum was DAN!!!! OMFG!!! TERRIFYING!!!!
Dan sees himself in a mirror in 10 years.
Joey! DO NOT PULL A "Chuck!!!"
"GRRR!!!! I'm CRAZY SCARY WESTERN ZOMBIE GUY!!! Gimme a banana...oh wait, I already got one...."
CAPTION CONTEST!!!! Why does Lou look so bummed out, but Richard looks so happy? Best caption wins a bag of crap!!!
"Hello, Wes....I really really am sad we didn't see you at Central time you should be here....we will sneeze on you!

Photo by "I hate water" Dan
Back on the coach to head to our next park....which we will post at some point soon I promise!!!

Caption contest, eh? I'll give it a shot.
Lou: Why didn't he look that pleased when he was riding me? What ever will this do to my high-class British Porn Star reputation?

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

^^ Lou: "When they told me I was going to get to ride something that was really long, this ISN'T what I had in mind!"

(sorry, Lou :br )

I immediately wondered what was wrong with Dave, so I appreciate Robb clearing that up. Now he IS like the other Dave Thomas.


Why do I still have a donkey title???

That panda looks like it's making an OOOh face. THat might give some sort of indication why Rich is so happy.

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

Central Park was the first park we visited that had, I remember, Our Very First Rastafarian Gift Shop!

Eh, mon? :br

Batman clone was fun, green tea (not pea, I learned my lesson, k?) soft serve was nice, that rifle shoot-up RUN THRU was insane, and what were they burning there, outside of the park? I have a pic of it, I will post later.

Also, glad to see it wasn't me that was f-ing up posting pix here last night. I tried to get started on my Top Ten List but blah blah blah, no pix could be posted. Thanks for making me feel much better about that (I thought) posting mistake (ha) on my part. (whew)

In the meantime, I will start to post my The List in a separate thread, then you can gather it together with the other eventual TRs everybody else will be posting, under one main page, in time.

Thanks again Robb for the awesome updates. And now, GO TO BED! :wink:

(P.S. I also want to give a shout-out to all closet Scary Teddy lovers around the world! I am a closet ST fanboy and Tokyo Disney Resort gave me ample stuff'n reason to add to the collection/insanity that is loving the little lightbulb-chomping fella, lol. See proof below...)
Here we are! All ready to get going on that personal Ten Best List of the Tour. Note that Teddy has his own ST here? Only the best for the best!
And for proof further... My entire collection of NBC-ST pins on a single lanyard! Mmmmmm, Teddy.
Talk is Cheap :idea: Action is Pricele$$


Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!

Well, I do like contests. Especially when the grand prize is a bag of crap! Ah crap, our most renewable resource.
After careful consideration, the judges inform Lou that riding a four-foot-tall animatronic giraffe doesn't count as a "plushie" credit. Richard, meanwhile, is just happy to be getting some kind of attention. Poor Richard.

I know more about donkeys than women!

Who doesn't like a good caption contest?

Lou: My head still hurts from getting donkey punched on the Hurricane. At least I have that panda to ride later...

Richard: Not if I keep you trapped on the on the Hurricane! ::insert evil laugh::

Lou: Watch out on next year's East Coast trip where you will have an excellent time on Hypersonic...

What's up with the shotguns? Can someone explain the game/ride/attraction/whatever? (laser tag? break the targets?)
