Photo TR: Behemoth/Ravine Flyer Trip

Postby natatomic » Mon Aug 11, 2008 9:45 pm

It's official, I'm hooked on TPR trips.

I realize that there have already been about 87 TRs started for this trip already (and how weird is that, since there were actually only about 50 of us there?), so I won't go into too much detail here in the actual report for now. I think that's pretty much been done.

But let me be another to say how INCREDIBLY AWESOME the TPR trips truly are. I tend to favor Disney/Universal/Busch parks, with their intense levels of theming/ambiance/technology/general awesomeness/etc., so I wasn't sure if I'd find these smaller parks as enjoyable, but - oh my gosh - NEVER in my life have I underestimated something SO MUCH. My eyes have been opened to a whole new world of amusement parks thanks to R&E, and I'm already looking into selling my eggs so that I can afford another TPR trip for next year.

You read that right. And it'd be totally worth it.

Day 1: Seabreeze
Day 2: Darien Lake
Day 2: Martin's Fantasy Island
Day 3: Canada's Wonderland
Day 4: Marineland & Waldameer
Day 5: Idlewild
Day 5: Lakemont Park
Day 5: DelGrosso's

But yes, here are the photos for Day 1: Seabreeze. A charming park, as are most parks that size, as I came to learn. Enjoy.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 024.jpg
I didn't take a picture of the entrance of the park apparently, so let's just jump right into it with a coaster shot. Yes, jump, perhaps as a Jack Rabbit would.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 236.jpg
Oh, that's the name of this ride? For serious? Wow, talk about coincidence.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 033.jpg
Ooo, I'd like to pull that ride-op's lever.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 035.jpg
Here's a first for one of my trip reports - a photo of people who were actually on the trip! And even more rare - a photo of ME on the trip!

Man, what a time to be alive.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 040.jpg
I finally got to meet the women of Tums.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 030.jpg
As well as this weirdo.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 039.jpg
That girl in the middle seems rather petrified, but come on lady! YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT FEAR IS.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 045.jpg
My first spinning Maurer Söhne, and it did not disappoint.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 046.jpg
Honestly, these coasters put spinning wild mice to shame.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 079.jpg
I think life would be a lot more exciting if actual cars spun like this.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 091.jpg
Day 1 - Seabreeze 100.jpg
Man, I loved going down backwards.

Yeaaaah, your mom liked going down backwards last night. (that was for you, Neil)
Day 1 - Seabreeze 133.jpg
This ride was cute. Note the lack of other adjectives.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 127.jpg
See? Cute. I'd like to gut one of these cars and convert it into a crib for my future children.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 123.jpg
If you just glance at it quickly and don't think too much about it, it kind of looks like a real ghetto Expedition Everest.

But, really...don't think about it. It just won't work that way.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 134.jpg
I don't think construction gets much more slapdash than this. Seriously, did these people never hear of a level?
Day 1 - Seabreeze 185.jpg
Yes, you know what kind of shot this is.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 159.jpg
Okay, I'm probably not giving this coaster the credit it deserves. It is fun. Exhilarating? No, but fun? Sure.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 209.jpg
Don't be fooled by this log flume's short stature - this was one of the most intense drops I've ever been on, flume-wise.

Hah... "flume-wise." That's a word I need to start incorporating into everyday conversation.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 233.jpg
Screamin' Eagle. [/caption]
Day 1 - Seabreeze 239.jpg
I dunno...I liked this photo...
Day 1 - Seabreeze 244.jpg
Two TPR credit whores in this photo, and only one got a fun kid. I can't say much though, my stolen child didn't hold his arms up either.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 254.jpg
Oooo...nighttime, slow-shutter magic!
Day 1 - Seabreeze 260.jpg
televisedconfession took the remaining photos in this TR. He didn't want to ride the Himalaya, so I let him play with my camera while those of us who weren't little sissy girls went for a ride.
Day 1 - Seabreeze 264.jpg
Day 1 - Seabreeze 275.jpg
And there you go - Seabreeze and the start of the B/RF trip. Darien Lake up next, but knowing me, it's gonna take a while.

Great photos and great TR. I want to go on one of these trips but I don't have the money to do so. I like the slow shutter shots and the sun silhouette station shot. :airtime:

Yep, all it needed was a paddlewheeler at the bottom.

Flume-wise, I'd have to say I am really enjoying this TR!

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Your mom's got a slow shutter, if you know what I'm saying.

The picture of the Screamin' Eagle reminded me why I chose "Ice Cream: The Ride" instead. SCARY!
