Time for the next update:

Day 3: More Worlds of Fun (and especially Prowler)

After getting in most of the credits the night before today was a nice and relaxing day for me. There was a nice walkback for Prowler with some very unique photo ops (i feel)
So there will be plenty of pictures for all the fanboys.

Personally i love these walkbacks, the more time i get to spent in backstage areas the more i appreciate all the effort that goes into running parks (and coasters) and yeah.. i could spent the entire day just taking pictures of people having a great time while riding coasters. Trying to find that one amazing/unique angle/picture is always fun and challenging.

enough said, here's a selection of the pictures of day 3.

Hope you like them

The holes in the track on Patriot are where a trim used to be located. The holes are where the mechanics of the brake would have been held. They're put there because the track B&M uses for brake runs is more expensive and unnecessary to make for just a trim.

Awesome pictures of Prowler :airtime:

Thanks again for your trip reports Hanno! The Prowler walkback was a lot of fun, even if it was roughly the temperature of the surface of the sun outside ;) . I've never had so much fun while melting as I've had on a TPR trip. Now I miss my TPR friends again :( .

Holy air! Great job getting that shot. Also, when I saw the pics from Adventure Land, I remembered this footage of The Outlaw I had favorited on YouTube.

Miss you to.

It's like life goes from one TPR trip to the next one.. and everything in between.. doesn't matter..
or does that sound just wrong?

Going through all the pictures for these updates makes me go through all the emotions again.. and darn it.. i wish i could do all the trips that are offered..
At least there are still some pictures left...

It looks like Robb is giving Jon and I the sex talk. I can only imagine how fudged up that talk would be coming from Robb. Elissa, you should probably head that one up when Kristen gets about that age, unless you're planning a career in porn for her. LOL.

Time for another highlight (for me) on this trip.

Day 4: Silver Dollar City.

This place was simply stunning, some awesome coasters a very nice looking park and friendly people.
There's also a possibility for a cave tour (which i missed/did not do (another reason to go back)) which is a lot of fun(i've heard).
Another fine weather day (aka hot) but so much fun. Don't forget Fire in the Hole while you're there. Such a fun ride.

There was also a nice treat for some Powder Keg walkback pictures.. Which (by the way) was one amazing ride. Had a blast and i have a feeling that next time i'll be riding it a lot more ;)
Hope you like the walkback pictures.

Feel free to comment or just tell me to to shut up and post the pictures ;)
