TPR's 2009 Behemoth Bash Tour

Next park of our trip was Lakemont in Altoona, PA. Another park in our small park tour, but it had a LOT of charm. It's a place where you can go, hang out, have a family picnic and ride some cool and classic stuff...

...and when you're talking about classic stuff it doesn't get any more classic than Leap the Dips.

And as the sign suggests, yup, it's the oldest coaster in the world!

For you lift hill geeks, not only will you love it's double chain method...

...but the anti-roll backs are doin' it old skool!

Don't let the age or the size of it fool you...Leap the Dips is AWESOME!

Here you can see some actual Leaping and Dipping!

I don't think I've seen riders without smiles plastered on their faces.

And yeah, you can see this *IS* the ultimate in old school! No upstop wheels, all side friction...all awesome!

Everyone hang on!!!

Guys! Don't look so worried...it's a lot of fun....

...and even a baby can ride it! (Yes, this was KidTums' first woodie!)

This is where all the other Leap The Dips cars to go sleep.


And yes, some awesome Leap the Dips POV will be coming your way to a TPR DVD soon! ;)

"Are those things really smacking the car in the butt???"

This dude is going to get a little extra workout today! ;)

Especially since the park fed us well! (The chicken here kicks ass!)

"I can ride Leap the Dips again, right?"

"Leap the what??? Dude, I'm here for the candy!!!"
