When I was there this sign read "1 Milf". Apparently they fixed it.
This is my signature. Deal with it.

Forgot to ask this in all the other TR's... did anyone else have as much trouble navigating the pitch-black Dragon Mountain queue as I did a couple of years ago? I must have hit my knees five times and my head twice just to get down to where it was better lit near the platform!

For the record, the sign said "1 Milf" at that time as well. I actually joked then that Marineland would fix it by removing the '1' and putting it in the fallen part of the 'E's place. Looks like I was half-right after all. :lol:

The second half of day 4 was spent at Waldameer.

Home to Ravine Flyer II.

This is one of those days/nights i'll never forget. The storm that hit us during ERT and the bus drive after that was amazing.

I did not dare to get my camera out of the safety of the bag to get some pictures of the rain.. but it was amazing.
I also wish i would have been able to describe the atmosphere due to the proximity of lightning and the sound of thunder..

Once again.. it was amazing and i'm glad i was part of the experience..

Here's a selection of the pictures i took during our visit.. hope you enjoy them.
As usual these are posted in the order they were taken...

Neil's face on X-Scream is absolutely priceless. It looks like he's not sure whether to scream, cry or throw up. :lol:

Nathan and Bethany are brother and sister, who don't come from Alabama, so aren't married. ::)

So did I... it occurred to me about 4 hours after the fact and I think I asked either Dave or Robb for the answer.

^I think they just hook up occaisionally after downing a bottle of absinthe with the group, but under the influence of such a demonic drink you really start a practical lesson in diminished responsibility.

I was born to be Idlewild, the place was so cute, with so many nooks and crannies to explore, every turn was a discovery. If people who like to enjoy hallucenagenic drugs ever get sick of the film Fantasia or Pink Floyd records, I'm sure they'll all head for Idlewild, it's another world.

Though I'm still a bit unclear about Mister Rogers, okay I know what Hump'n'Song is now but what is his role in it? A host, a pervy old guy who hangs around in the bushes? I'll have to see what wikipedia can reliably inform me about this.
