Niiicolaaah's TPR UK Trip Photos

Postby niiicolaaah » Sun Jun 25, 2006 4:18 pm

Originally I wasn't going to make a photo trip report, but as you can see, I changed my mind. This trip was all kinds of hilarious fun. I really enjoyed hanging out with people I've been talking to online for many months, as well as those who I did not know previous to the trip. The coasters and parks were great, but I would not have had nearly as good a time had the people not been so awesome.

Day 00: London
I flew over with Paul. At the airport we met up with Jay and went for a little afternoon sightsee. It was a billion and a half degrees that day and we were all drenched with sweat. How pleasant! lol.

Welcome to the tube, please mind the gap

"This train is for Cockfosters." Tee hee hee!
TPRUK2006012.jpg
Our first stop was St. Paul's Cathedral
TPRUK2006028.jpg
It provided us with a beautiful view of London, and the stairs scared the heck out of me
TPRUK2006029.jpg
We're so awesome
TPRUK2006014.jpg
Paul, I didn't know you opened a patisserie in London!
TPRUK2006032.jpg
Next, we went over to the Tower. My main goal was to see some torture.
TPRUK2006038.jpg
I love visiting historic places like this.
TPRUK2006039.jpg
It's really nice, but I didn't get to see anyone being tortured. :(
TPRUK2006043.jpg
I did get to see some cool armor though
TPRUK2006053.jpg
Other cool stuff we saw: Big Ben
TPRUK2006057.jpg
Globe Theatre

And the London Eye! Next up: Legoland!

Day 0: Legoland

Legoland is a fun park that has the best teacups I experienced on the trip. I also got my #50 coaster credit: Jungle Coaster. In addition to Jungle Coaster, Legoland has two kiddie coasters by WGH Transportation: Dragon and Dragon's Apprentice.

Despite all the cool stuff at Legoland, I managed to take startlingly few pictures!

Miniland was really neat, and had a few hilarious things
TPRUK2006075.jpg
Like this murder scene and shoving the dead body in the luggage compartment!
TPRUK2006045.jpg
That night, we had dinner at the pub across the street. These are Elissa's "Nachos"

They're Doritos with random lettuce on top. WTF

"Hmm, I wonder what this sauce sounds like."

Day 1: Chessington World of Adventures

Chessington is a park that believes strongly in the use of stairs. Stairs going up, stairs going down, many for no reason at all. They have a really cute zoo section, which we checked out after conquering the park in less than two hours. Well, the morning ERT helped.
TPRUK2006089.jpg
Morning ERT started off at Vampire, an Arrow suspended with Vekoma floorless trains. The station was AWESOME!
TPRUK2006088.jpg
I found the ride to be boring, but I guess no suspended can beat Vortex at PCW. ;)
TPRUK2006083.jpg
Next up: Dragon's Fury, a Maurer Sohne spinning mouse
TPRUK2006111.jpg
And boy, did it spin us good!
TPRUK2006085.jpg
I LOVE this ride!
DerekGetsRobbCredits.jpg
Finally, Derek decides to grab somebody else's boobs for a change! ;)
TPRUK2006091.jpg
Up next was Rattlesnake, mouse with very cool theming.
TPRUK2006103.jpg
House Bastard!
TPRUK2006102.jpg
We watched the Sea Lion show. There was one sea lion that just swam back and forth and didn't do anything; we named him "Robb"
RunDerekRun.jpg
In the zoo section, we found out that Derek runs faster than a skunk (and smells better than one also)!
TPRUK2006081.jpg
Burnt Stub???????
DerekPrivate.jpg
Why did I take this picture? You decide!
TPRUK2006093.jpg
Tomb Blaster is a fun dark ride that you have to climb up two flights of stairs, and then back down two flights of stairs, to get to
TPRUK2006095.jpg
Score on the left = mine = 10800. Score on the right = Derek's = 800! Ha ha!
TPRUK2006115.jpg
Chessington has a cool log flume also.
DaveandMare.jpg
Finally, after searching all day for the entrance, we rode the monorail

No disco dancing on the monorail!

Hey Nicole! I'm glad you decided to do a Photo TR for the UK Trip. I'm encouraging everyone who took photos to post their photo TRs because I think it's GREAT to see everyone's different perspectives from the trip.

Everyone has something different to offer which is why, at least for me, I want to see as many photos as possible!

When I'm done with the TPR updates, I'm going to make a page that will tie together everyone's updates so people who are interested can see all the photos and reports from all the different points of view.

Great TR, keep them coming!

Day 1: Coney Beach

What can I say about Coney Beach? It was pretty ghetto and scary. But I got two credits, which compensated for the two coasters that would be closed at Southport later in the trip!
TPRUKday3to5020.jpg
Welcome to Coney Beach, be sure to wash your hands after touching ANYTHING
TPRUKday3to5001.jpg
Credit #1: Megablitz, my first ever Pinfari
TPRUKday3to5013.jpg
I was expecting it to be a lot more painful than it actually was. The sandbag theming was a nice touch.
TPRUKday3to5009.jpg
Next up was Nessi, a lovely kiddie coaster
TPRUKday3to5006.jpg
Jeff and Lou risk their lives for a credit!
TPRUKday3to5010.jpg
Look at all those credit whores.
TPRUKday3to5016.jpg
Then a bunch of tools valleyed the powered coaster
TPRUKday3to5015.jpg
I feel so safe!
TPRUKday3to5023.jpg
Some lovely theming.

Day 2: Oakwood

Oakwood was one of my favorite parks on the trip. New for this year is Speed, a Gerstlauer Eurofighter which I LOVED. The vertical lift hill felt very cool and odd, and the airtime hill was INSANE! It gave me a bruise on my right shoulder that didn't go away until the add-on.

Another cool thing we did at Oakwood was the Crystal Maze. My team won even though the computer crashed during one of our games. Go team Lady Gay! :) I also rode my first alpine slide, but refrained from the vertical slide cause I didn't want to die just yet.

I thought Megafobia was awesome, but we only had time to ride it twice.

Oakwood was a really cool park; I will definitely try to get back there some day.
TPRUKday3to5027.jpg
We had morning ERT on this delicious creation
TPRUKday3to5028.jpg
On the first ride, we heard someone yell "WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?!?!" at this point. This saying was repeated many times throughout the trip and became its theme
TPRUKday3to5026.jpg
Here come a train full of happy riders. Check out what Speed did to Bill's beard! :)
TPRUKday3to5030.jpg
Oh how I love this ride.
TPRUKday3to5029.jpg
Helix of awesomeness... I seriously LOVE this ride. We need some in the US (closer to me than Dollywood!)
TPRUKday3to5032.jpg
The only person who looks excited in this picture is Paul!
TPRUKday3to5037.jpg
This does not qualify as credit whoring.
TPRUKday3to5039.jpg
Treetops is a fun ride!
TPRUKday3to5038.jpg
Either Tom is hungry or he's about to hurl!
TPRUKday3to5031.jpg
Mmm... Megafobia
TPRUKday3to5047.jpg
We got a photo walkback and had lots of poo to avoid stepping in
DerekTreeII.jpg
During the Megafobia walkback, Derek discovered he has the power to turn into a tree
TPRUKday3to5055.jpg
Signature shot!
TPRUKday3to5059.jpg
Here are the Coaster Sheep that created the minefield of poo
TPRUKday3to5062.jpg
Tom yells at the sheep, but they are too far away to be frightened by him!
TPRUKday3to5044.jpg
Yo yo yo, it's Homie Clown Bill!
TomYellingAtHisShoe.jpg
Why is Tom so mad at his shoe???
TPRUKday3to5064.jpg
Oakwood has a vertical lift, more than vertical drop, vertical loop, vertical slide, and vertical water ride!
TPRUKday3to5063.jpg
Bye bye Oakwood, we had a lot of fun inside you today
