The way the trains run, I'm not convinced that being able to see the layout would help that much. Like others have said you need to try one of the hard core Vekoma brace positions (either Turtle your head and get the hell away from that restraint) or slam your head to one side and fight to keep it against one side of the restraint.

It's just a rough as hell Vekoma. I would almost accept it at another park, but I can't believe that Disney would allow people to ride that, it's just that terrible.

Wow, I was going to say "It can't be TOO bad."

I guess I'm wrong. It's a shame. I can't tell if Rock N' Roller coaster is showing any age in DSP, but at DHS it's actually relatively smooth. I think it's aging rather well.

Disneyland Paris - Part 2
Our second morning at Disneyland Paris started with some ERT on Big Thunder Mountain.
It was kind of creepy walking through the park when hardly anyone was there.
Robb gets everyone together so we can walk over to our ERT session!
Wandering through Frontierland before it's open was just TPR members and...well...that was pretty much it!
Let our Big Thunder ERT begin!
Whee!!!! This is easily the BEST Big Thunder of any Disney park.
Lot of sexy Big Thunder curves.
In this tunnel is where all the craziness happens!
So very much better than all the others.
"Raise your hands....if you're sure!"
"Sorry, you cannot come in yet...must wait until all the TPR dorks are done with the ride...."
Big Thunder ERT = HUGE success!
We decided to head over to Disney Studios Paris for some random fun.
KidTums wants to go on the tram tour first.
Catastrophe = Good!
Water = Bad! (At least on the Dan scale!)
Somewhere mcjaco just died a little inside.
This attraction gives some good dinosaur head!
More fire + Horizons props = Better than Florida!
It was time for a little Aerosmith action...French style!
Hi Lou! How are you? Ready for Rockin' Roller Coaster? Me too!
Wait...are we still in Paris?!?!
Riding Tower of Terror...TPR style!
Time for the newest Disney Paris coaster - Crush's Turtle Twister!
If you could spot the TPR members in this line, you must be a stalker.
Spooky lift hill!
It has some clever theming and a small dark ride part, but once that's over it's the same model that you can find at Lagoon, Waldameer, and other parks.
"Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine!"
These guys never get old.
Our TPR Europe Trip farewell dinner was at Cafe Mickey.
It was like one big party with TPR members and Disney characters!
Looks like Lou found a lover on this trip!
...and so did Chris! =)
It was a great night of food, friends, and corporate mascots!
That night at the bar, things got a little heated up...
Steve was the star of the show!
When you've had seventeen beers, what's one more, Steve? =)
"He's actually DEAD! I'm controlling him 'Weekend at Bernie's' style!"
Now that is HOT!
Well, this pretty much brings to a close our mini-updates for TPR's Europe Trip 2008....
C'est dans la boite!

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

I am still seriously amazed at our BTM ERT. That was BRILLIANT! Yes, definitely the best of the BTM's by far.

Thanks again Robb & Elissa, anyone who helped with this trip, as well as any peeps I had the pleasure to hang out with who made this trip so incredibly fun. I can't wait to do another!

It was an awesome tour.

And BTM/ERT was just an amazing cherry on an already great cake of a tour.

Thanks Elissa and Robb. It was another wonderful tour.


(So when is the Scandinavian tour again, wink wink nudge nudge?)

That picture of the spooky lifthill of Crushs Coaster makes me feel so good. I remember that awsome ride in that coaster. But when I see the picture showing an empty mainstreet, it makes me so pissed off. An empty mainstreet?!>? I have some confusing feelings about this update :lmao:

Why do I still have a donkey title???

It was empty because the picture was taken during extra magic hours. Despite the resorts being very full very few poeple were there during the start of EMH. On day one it was basically only TPR peeps at the gate waiting for the park to open, which I found very odd.

The parks did get much much more crowded later in the day.

Another good update, but I am not going to say I like it, because it is another nail in the coffin of this trip. :( I had a great time. Thanks Again.

^Well, the extra hours were 2 hours long and I noticed that the crowds started to pick up in the 2nd hour of the extra magic hours. Also, there wasn't all that much open during that time, so if you were staying for multiple days you really didn't need all that time.

Too bad they opened crappy Space Mountain early instead of Big Thunder Mountain.
