Photo TR: Six Flags America Meet

Postby jackskellington101 » Sun Apr 22, 2007 12:02 pm

The meet, in my assumption, was an overwhelming success. It seemed every aspect of a true TPR meet was there: coasters, minimal wait times, overwhelming numbers of stupid cheerleaders, Vekoma "fun", everything you'd need to a TPR trip. Not only that but Batwing still opened even though the sign said it was closed. I consider that ERT. Unexpected ERT, but ERT non the less. Here are my set of pictures.
01 DFC takeover.jpg
This is a foreboding sight. Too...many...cheerleaders!
02 Revolutionaries.jpg
Take on the revolutionaries!
03 Batwingloop.jpg
Batwing opened?!? Awesome. The loop seemed to be extra forceful today. Take that pretzel loop!
04 Jokerless Jinx.jpg
Batman defeated the Joker's Jinx, so it was closed all day. The trains were sitting off the track, which makes it moderately difficult to ride.
05 Twoface enter.jpg
My 100th credit. Woe is me. Well, let's get this over with.

07 Wild One helix.jpg
The Wild One, a classic coaster, but one that really could use the fancy technology of banked turns.
08 Bridge to nowhere.jpg
The SFA lagoon...yeah.
09 Kiddie credit.jpg
Everyone's getting their kiddie coaster credit.
10 Great Race.jpg
Didn't know you drove Robb. ;)
11 Meat time.jpg
My lovely meat sammich, in which I waited a half an hour for. Longest wait for the day too.
12 In splash zone.jpg
"I think you're in the splash zone" - Robb Well, everyone was thinking it.
13 SFA Tap.jpg
The lovely SFA tap water. I know I shortened my life span by drinking this.
14 whats a twicket.jpg
What's a twicket?
15 SFA face.jpg
The ever present SFA graffiti

Nice little TR. I'm going to SFA for the first time in two weeks. And a Twicket is a two day ticket!

a twiket is something that you can buy for a small extra cost that allows you to come back the next day for a couple dollars (I think its about 15 dollars or 20)

Can I park my donkey here?

I can't believe you drank that water and ate that sandwich!
Ewwww!

Now I can what your talking about when you bring up lack of shade.
Sad that Joker's Jinx was down... that would be the only one I would be interested in riding.

Very good pictures though.

Packing up and heading out. And a gratuitous shot of Robb's Nindo underwear.
32 splashdown water.jpg
While waiting for my family to pick me up, I saw that Shipwreck Falls was running again. I love to picture the splash. First, here's the water. Yummy.

SPLOOOOOOOOOSH. Not Dan approved.
34 lonely characters.jpg
On the way out, they had a bunch of characters all conglomerated together. They look bored.

And when I got home, I noticed I got a little sunburned. Damn your giant ball of fire in the sky! Damn you SFA and your lack of shade!

Is it just me, or are Vekomas actually really smooth?i went on Two-Face, and Mind Eraser opening day, and I thought "Hey, Vekomas are actually pretty smooth" can you define "rough"? or define "owch" Where does it hurt.. SERIOUSLY! Two Face was as smooth as a B&M and Mind Eraser only had one spot that I guess you can say was rough. And ggrrr you.. SROS was closed opening day, I really wanted to go on it. And Joker's Jinx was testing opening day.... and now the trains are.. off the track..wonder why

The hurt was in my head, as it got battered by the over the shoulder restraints. The shattering of my spine, with Two Face in mind, where my feet started to tingle.
