By now it was time to say goodbye to SFNE.. i had a great time there and well.. a great time..

Time to continue with the tour and check out the next place..

I'm not sure what was going on with my mind by that time.. but i only got on one coaster.. and did not bother getting in line for the other ones..

I guess i was too tired at that time...

Anyway..
Here's the selection for Rye Playland with a lot of crappy captions..
DSC_0007.JPG
now that is nice...
DSC_0014.JPG
First aid and a coaster.. how convenient
DSC_0016.JPG
First stop of this visit.. Dragon Coaster..
DSC_0021.JPG
everybody.. please get in line and get together...
DSC_0024.JPG
so we can get into the backstage area in the mean time......
DSC_0044.JPG
here they come.. do i see a smile??
DSC_0047.JPG
hands up.. baby hands up..
DSC_0050.JPG
Happy faces..
DSC_0057.JPG
Back into the light...
DSC_0082.JPG
spot the coaster enthusiasts..
DSC_0084.JPG
hmm, i just spotted this.. and tried to capture it.. i would have looked better with a train in the picture.. but this will have to do..
DSC_0091.JPG
time to focus again.. because there's the next train..
DSC_0095.JPG
more happy people..
DSC_0108.JPG
Playland.. fun for everyone..
DSC_0110.JPG
looks like a full tpr train...
DSC_0122.JPG
there they go again...
DSC_0127.JPG
but wait.. there's more.. another train..
DSC_0131.JPG
worries, fear, joy.. this one has almost everything i guess..
DSC_0138.JPG
look.. there's the reason they call it dragon coaster...
DSC_0158.JPG
keep those arms up...
DSC_0166.JPG
curious to see how this one came out...
DSC_0183.JPG
this reminded me of something i had seen before.. but can't remember precisely what/where/when..
DSC_0197.JPG
waiting in line...
DSC_0209.JPG
you are allowed to smile...
DSC_0215.JPG
that's a little better...
DSC_0225.JPG
that's it..
DSC_0230.JPG
i wonder which is more disturbing... robb "chocking" Elissa.. or the lady in the background giving a thumbs up.. like she approves the action.. hmm or is the the "mouse" looking.. well looking..
DSC_0232.JPG
yeah.. i agree.. the previous picture left me speechless..
DSC_0254.JPG
it looks so innocent..
DSC_0262.JPG
more brainwashing going on??
DSC_0278.JPG
smile...
DSC_0283.JPG
at least it looked like evrybody had a great time on this one..
DSC_0315.JPG
just chilling.. and not worrying about getting wet...
DSC_0341.JPG
Random people on the logflume..
DSC_0361.JPG
looked like some bumper cars
DSC_0366.JPG
i should eat something..
DSC_0398.JPG
after "Time Warp" i decided to skip this ride (and the line) instead i tried to capture the "joy" of others..
DSC_0413.JPG
screaming dave..
DSC_0484.JPG
Have some fun today.. hmm.. i did have.. looking at other people... or is that just mean??
DSC_0509.JPG

DSC_0519.JPG

DSC_0532.JPG
and somehow.. this place does look gorgeous...
DSC_0538.JPG

DSC_0546.JPG
dragon coaster..
DSC_0554.JPG
the ride op created a big party around this ride...
DSC_0566.JPG

I love those shots of the looks of terror / pain of us on Super Flight. Nice shot of my back standing in about to be locked in the cage of death.

Playland is one of those parks that will always be remembered on this trip for all the wrong reasons.

OMG! Look At El Toros Running Wheels! More space between the track and the wheels than any Vekoma out there! But thats not a bad thing!

Great photos, I see my penchant for wearing shirts that are out of synch with the park is in evidence again, SROS (New England) shirt on El Toro this time.

Your commitment to capturing the trip in it's glory is much appreciated, and allows us all to enjoy the great memories of the trip long after it's over, mucho thanks Hanno.

This shot from Rye Gunplayland scared me, that's no moon it's the death star.

^Jason, I can't tell whether you are yawning or having an orgasm?

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

Hanno, amazing. Thank you for doing this. I can't believe we did all that together not even a month ago?
