Postby robbalvey » Sat Aug 02, 2008 10:46 pm

Hello everyone!

We have started TPR's East Coast and Behemoth/Ravine Flyer trip! Guess what? We have some updates for you.

Just like Europe, it will be mainly photos only. It's 1am here and don't have a lot of time to chat.

Got into PHL yesterday. Had a good night with some old friends and new, took off this morning heading for the Buffalo area with a stop at Seabreeze.

Now on to the photos....

Day 5, Part 1 - Idlewild

East Coast Trip:

Day 3, Part 1 - Quassy Amusement Park
Day 3, Part 2 - Lake Compounce
Day 4 - Rye Playland
Day 5 - Six Flags Great Adventure
Day 6 - Six Flags America
Day 7 - Busch Gardens Williamsburg
FYI - It takes at least 14 giant bags to run a TPR trip!
We tried to go to dinner, but they kept shutting the power off on us. They must have read the website and knew we were coming....
We ended up back at the hotel bar...which is where TPR can usually be found anyway!
KidTums ads a new random element to playing pool.
This is what the group looked like for the entire 6 hour journey to Buffalo.
Well, ok...some people slept....
The rest of us watched The Muppet Show (Star Wars episode to be exact...OMG Mark Hammil CANNOT act!!)
Our first rest stop included "Robb's Meat Sale." Yum!
Hanno or Danny decide!
TPR Takeover at McDonalds!
BOOOO to those who went to Subway!
Dan just came.
"Hi the dollar store we found Bobble Head Jesus. I hope the Elissa Bingo prizes are as good as this!"
Rich just came!
Yay! First park of the trip!
COASTER!!!! GO!!!!!!
Congrats Rich for your #40 coaster!
Just a little bit of enthusiasm there John? =)
Congrats Rich on Coaster #40!
Stalker alert!
Onto the Bobsleds...or Bobselds...or "Ghetto Matterhorn"
This ride was totally funktacular!
See, here's the used to be a fully wooden coaster similar to Leap the Dips. And then they decided to convert the wood track to steel and make a bobsled.
The ride is REALLY bizarre but totally fun!
The girls of TPR agree! (Yes, man is an honorary TPR girl...")
Whole lotta spinnin' going on....
Natalie is the ultimate whore....CREDIT whore...."credit"
Next up was the highlight of the day!
Whirlwind is a Mauer Shone spinning coaster and OMFG were we all delerious when we got back to the bus.
They have no idea they are about to have their insides re-arranged.
For some reason it spun faster with two girls on one side and two dudes, one with a blue tounge, on the other. Weird, huh?
Jahan and Dan spend a romantic evening together on the bobsleds.
Robb & Dave use the Casey approved "Clench & Squish" technique.
It was nice of them to close the ride early so we could have our ERT. Thank you Seabreeze!!!
This was a GREAT start to the trip!

More updates will be coming soon!

Hey I've seen those bags before!

Glad the trip got off to a good start, Seabreeze looks like one of those "interesting but really fun" parks like Beech Bend!

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!
