Nice pics, Hanno! I wish I had taken my camera into the park. I let myself be intimidated into leaving it on the bus, so I only got a few pics on my phone.

The expressions of the riders on Cyclone are pretty funny, although I thought that the ride was rough in a good way. I guess it only seemed good because of the extra, extra, extra thick padding inside the seats!

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Hanno,

you never cease to amaze me. All of your photos are BEAUTIFUL, but the shots of our crew enjoying S:RoS ERT are very near and dear to my heart. You did an incredible job of capturing the essence of Superman. Thank you...and just...WOW.

Superman was as good as those pictures showed. I think I had about 8-9 rides in a row, but could have stayed on all day long.

Amazing pics as always... Sadly I didn't appear in any of them :cry:

Still Superman was about the only ride to leave a serious lasting impression... OMG I my ankles were bruised from ERT! It wasn't visible but the second day it was painful! Every airtime hill hurt but it was still amazing.

You just saw someone in the row in front of you get stapled in by the ride ops and you realized you're their next victim. ;)

Those leg restraints are the reason Superman isn't my #1 coaster and Maverick still beats it out.



Looking forward to seeing more Hanno! Not as many pictures of me in the water park as I expected since our group there was so small, but that one of Tornado will do. Quassy and Lake Compounce were awesome afterwards! Reliving these memories has really brightened my day. :)

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!
