I'm pretty sure I was the only one in the group who wanted to stay for ERT... I got almost 20 rides in that night though, so I won't complain too much.

Good to the last drop

I love Wildwood, it was one of my favorite places to go when I lived on the east coast. Dante's Dungeon is a really good dark ride with a couple live actors and it's been recently overhauled with all new tricks, next time make sure you try it out!

Very impressive photos, by the way. Shooting lightning is NOT easy!

I think ERT would have been pretty nice, as the ride was starting to get faster as it got darker outside. That last ride when it started raining and there was lightning in the distance was pretty awesome.

Great photos Hanno...I think you have seriously captured every single trip participant. I look forward to the rest.

Nice pics of Clementon, despite the bad lighting.....from what I hear, it is hard to make that park look good :lolr:

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

OK I know im a few pages too late to respond to this but im going to anyway...

On the Kings Dominion update, a picture raised the question of 'why is everybody's hands on their legs?" Well, from personal experience, I find myself doing this...especially on floorless and standups, to attempt to keep the contents of my pockets IN my pockets.

Nice! Hanno you got my one ride on Hellcat... And I was in one of the two seats that wasn't attacked by motion blur ;)

I was really disappointed that we didn't get ERT on that honestly. I kinda did the rest of my rides and food that night based on the assumption we were going to be on it later.

Hanno seriously can I just say a HUGE thanks for all the pics. It is so much fun reliving the trip. Besides that I have no idea how you got in any rides with the amount of pictures you took. This thread has been so much fun.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?
