Where you the one riding Boulder Dash during the ERT while wearing the Boulder Dash hoodie?!

^There was a few of them. I know Jenn was as well.

Awesome pics again Hanno! I love how you take amazing photos of people not looking, unlike someone else that was just creepy.

Nope...I did not have a Boulder Dash hoodie...mine is green and just has Lake Compounce on it. After having ridden Boulder Dash, I would not mind having one of those either! :airtimer:

Hanno!!! I've currently been traveling, so thus unable to see your photos until today and let me just say--I LOVE THEM!

Especially the one of Kristen grabbing my nose. I adore it!

Thank you for sharing these!

Well.. it ain't over yet (and with that i mean these updates and the second day of tis trip..)

We had one more stop before heading back to the hotel..

Lake Compounce

Home of Boulderdash which ended up being one of those special days and ERT session.

I'm going to say something other will not like... but i prefer this ride (based on how it was during the ert sessions) to El Toro... but more on that when it's time for that update.

Let's focus on Lake Compounce and the time we spent there.

By the way.. you won't see many of my "standard" pictures for this park.. due to the fact that we arrived late... and well.. my camera needs a bit more light for that kind of pictures :-(
Yes.. i guess we are almost there
and here's the park map..
let's get in and have some fun in this park...
this building just looked nice..
By this time i started to realize that these rides are the only ones (except spinning flatrides) which can make me alittle sick (so far)
Interesting paintjob..
Zoomerang... and yes.. i've been on worse.. (as far as i can remember)
while being in the area.. i might as well check the kiddie... denied...
i'll be back...
there's still more to see..
there was areason.. but i guess i'm getting old (well not als old as the old man) but.. you get the idea??
the name and rides look don't match.. but it was fun...
This is the only decent picture of somebody enjoying Boulderdash i have from that day :-(
it's almost one big blur... that ride was flying.. and ERT had not even started yet...
thank you, free fills
some familiar faces on Wildcat
The way to "paradise/heaven" for some...
going up the hill
but there's more... this just looked nice..
especially with this kind of attention to detail...
wait a second.. you don't get wet on this logflume??
or did you??
just chilling...
no single riders on the ferris wheel.. resulted in a nice chat with the female ride-op of this ride while enjoying some "laps" Thanks for that.
and off course some pictures as well
time to check out the light effect on the entrance...
by this time.. i could only use a flash.. or play with long shutter times.. and see what would come out of it...
zooom.. zoom... zoomerang
spin baby.. spin..
you can get some interesting result when playing with shutter time...
and this time.. with the lights on...
isn't this just pretty??
time to check the ghost hunt
time fo ert... ehm.. wait.. aren't we supposed to go to Boulderdash??
no.. we got some surprise "ert" on the kiddie.. and created the longest line of that day?!?!?!?
Have fun guys (and girls) i'm heading over to Boulderdash..
it's dark outside...
heading into the forrest.. that's it for this update...
I'm dutch.. not much i can do about that
My coasters/parks and other stuff photo's

Don't worry Hanno, I liked Boulder Dash better than El Toro also.

While El Toro was a great ride, the airtime and speed of Boulder Dash that night was amazing and it is easily my #1 wood coaster now.

(Don't worry El Toro fanboys, the bull comes in at #2. ;) )

^Yeah, I enjoyed Boulderdash more than El Toro as well.

El Toro was awesome and was a blast but Boulderdash was all that and more.

It will be interesting to ride it again once they re-profile or brake the turnaround. My opinion might change after that happens...

Once again, awesome photos. I enjoyed Boulder Dash much more than El Toro too! Well maybe not "much more" but it's certainly no contest. ::D

That surprise ERT on Kiddie Coaster was awesome. I was one of the first to hear about it from a park employee, so I got on before the line got too bad. Zoomerang wasI think I'm at 7 now) boomerangs I've been on compared to Hershey's which ranks dead last. Too bad you didn't get any pictures of our TPR takeover of the Rotor right after dinner. That was interesting...

Lastly, the night time experience of the park and Boulder Dash ERT was truly amazing!!

I roomed with Tony and lived to tell about it!

Oh Boulder Dash, how much do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

I swear Boulder Dash did NOT get old to me at all during ERT, well actually during the hour or so I spent riding and reriding it before ERT and during ERT. I came back into the station with the same exhilirated (sp?), generally blown away feeling every single time. El Toro, on the other hand, was a little disappointing to me because there were no surprise moments during the ride. Sure, you have the hill that takes you into RT's infield, but I've read so much about that hill that there was no surprise in that moment. I guess it was a case of reading too much about a ride to give it a fair chance.
