It's time for a TPR style credit run pit stop at the Oakland Zoo!
30652_397029703565_194340658565_4118805_5501140_n.jpg
We are here to ride the biggest, baddest coaster in Oakland!

Oakland Zoo has a really nice kiddie area that is a throwback to small traditional amusement parks.

And since the Oakland Zoo isn't just about coasters, let's check out some animals!
30652_397039298565_194340658565_4118985_3751848_n.jpg
There's a lion in there somewhere!

The Oakland Zoo has an awesome sky ride for a birds eye view of many of the animals.

Things like the elephant Tug-o-War are what help set TPR apart from other enthusiast clubs who care only about the coasters. Keep up the awesomeness R&E.

...V2.5...
30652_397106063565_194340658565_4120683_1360239_n.jpg
...and of course the Tony Hawk water challenge!
30652_397106283565_194340658565_4120687_1259711_n.jpg
But first...a little bit of credit whoring!
30652_397106723565_194340658565_4120690_7972630_n.jpg
It's called the "Thai Five!". (no really! It is!)

30652_397107928565_194340658565_4120745_5368459_n.jpg
The rules are simple...hold a cup if water and see how much is left when you come back to the station!
30652_397108133565_194340658565_4120746_5847795_n.jpg
For one night only Tony Hawk becomes a water ride!!!
30652_397108413565_194340658565_4120752_3578207_n.jpg
But what you're not told us that Robb is in the station with an unlimited amount of water to pour on the riders!!!
30652_397108543565_194340658565_4120753_7656453_n.jpg
Wearing ponchos = easy target for Robb!!!
30652_397108688565_194340658565_4120759_7559073_n.jpg
"Down with the poncho team!!!"

Great TRs so far, looks like everyone is having a great time. ...Elephant tug of war and Tony Hawk water challenge = awesome. Once again I have to say that SFDK is one of my favorite parks in the SF chain and it appears they definitely know how to throw a kick arse bash. ...along with Robb and Elissa of course.
