Ready for another Deep South Trip update? That's right! It's time for CAROWINDS!!!

The text version of this update will be short because it's late and I need to get to bed, but I just wanted to send a huge THANK YOU out to the crew at Carowinds for hosting a great day for us!

We started out with some ERT on Afterburn (Thanks Pufferfish for dispatching us), and then onto Nighthawk, Carolina Cobra, Vortex, and the Carolina Goldrusher. That's right *FIVE* coaster for ERT!!!

And on top of that we did the Scooby Doo dark ride challenge (to which Martin proved to be the sharpshooter of the group!)

Anyway, we had a great day. Onto the photos...
A few years ago we went to Carowinds and this photo of Elissa's boobs, one in each state, was created. It is STILL to this day the BEST PHOTO EVER POSTED TO TPR!
Our day started out with some ERT on Top Gu....err...Flight Dec....Err...After Burn. Yeah, that's it!
After Burn is actually one of the better B&M inverts.
TPR agrees. We like B&M inverts whose name comes eating too many Buffalo Wild Wings!
Oh! Its from FIGHTER JETS! I get it now...
"Ok TPR! Are you ready for the most awesome coaster in the Carolinas?"
That's right! Caroline Cobra! The best named Boomerang EVAR!!! (no, really, we actually think it's great and has a kick ass logo too!)
So you might be thinking "Yeah, I've seen Boomerangs before, what's the big deal?"
Yeah, but have you see one with trains like this? Noooooo!
That's right! Now you can ride a Boomerang without having to worry about bashing your head into small peices of floating goo.
Oh, yeah, don't let me forget to give a shout out to our favorite Carowinds ride op, Pufferfish!
Hmm...there seems to be a lot of dirt here.
I have always wanted to know who invented liquid soap, and why.
My "sources" tell me this is a 4-across, prototype looping Vekoma woodie. Anyone hear something different?
KidTums credit!!!!
You can only ride this coaster if you are at least 36 inches tall, but less than 40", or have an adult, or have ridden a pogo stick in the last 27 minutes, and are holding two monkeys and a flamingo, and the flamingo's name must be "Harold", and a bee keeper had recently attacked you with a multi-purpose spoon.
And now...for SCOOBY DOO CHALLENGE!!!!! (No bee keepers or their bees were harmed during the Scooby Doo Challenge)
Elissa says "I have a green gun and I don't like beans!"
The man in this picture who is trying to catch bees in his mouth may be the winner of this challenge. Or he could just have a serious problem with his jaw. Who knows.
Woah...what's this with Adam in the front seat...WITH A GIRL (oh, sorry, that's his wife) and Bryan takes the BACK SEAT to Adam? hmm...
Borg ASSimilator got the "Nighthawk" treatment during the off-season.
Yeah, it lost the giant orb thing...
But it sure looks purdy!
Drop Tower...yup!
Yup, Mr. Bee Mouth Jaw Guy won the challenge! (Thanks Dani for setting that up!)
And now...Ice Bat presents the "Most Insane NC/SC Photo" contest. Simply respond with the photo you like the best and the winner will receive something random from Dave's office!
#1 - Random group of sad people.
#2 - Chick cut in half by the stateline pole.
#3 - Nick and KerryB in ACTION!!!
#4 - A Threesome across two states.
#5 - and Bryan show? (Adam is standing on the left!)
#6 - Nay recreates the "Classic Elissa Photo!"
#7 - Stefanie and Wagner across two states.
#8 - Robb recreates the "Classic Elissa Photo!"
#9 - And finally TPR points to their favorite Carolina. VOTE NOW!

Thank you again to Carowinds for a GREAT DAY!
EDIT!!! #10 - Brooke's (dcody) ass cheecks - one in each state.

Yay! I was in the update! Seriously though, I'm glad you all had a great day at the park. It was very cool meeting up with you guys and hanging out for a while. Come back anytime you want, Carowinds welcomes you.
Just keep swimming...

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Great update Robb. I really want to go on one of these trips.
Carowinds seems like a nice small park.

Enjoy the rest of the Deep South!


I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

The photo of Robb, recreating the infamous Elissa pose, made me literally laugh out loud at 1AM, here in the nurses' station. My coworkers are now watching me carefully for suspected drug use, I think. ;)

I know more about donkeys than women!

Looks like everyone had a great time! Awesome! A cedar fair park that seems well taken care of.

I vote for photo #9.

Photo #8 made me puke in my mouth a bit.

Looks like you are all having a great time! I absolutely can not wait until next year when I get to go on a TPR trip!

Dollywood was the last park on my own little coaster expedition, so I can't wait to see your report from there. It's such a nice family park; it'll be interesting to see how ya'll defiled its sanctity. LOL
