  4. Hey everyone! We have just finished up the Maverick segment from our new DVD "Roller Coasters in the RAW!" For you coaster footage and POV fans this is probably the most comprehensive video of the ride ever! It includes tons of offride shots from just about every angle and a complete POV from the lift hill to brake run totally unedited! Enjoy the video!!! Yup, that's Maverick with that more-than-ninety-degree drop! It's got lots of twisty gooeyness. It's got lots of airtime that makes grown men go "WHEEEEEEEEE!" Download the Cedar Point Maverick Video HERE! Order
  5. Here's just a little update on TPR's 2008 trips - Spots are still open for East Coast USA and Mainland Europe. If you're interested, get your deposit in now! Initial deposits for the China trip and Tokyo trip are due on November 15th, 2007. We have made paying the initial deposit even easier! You can now pay your trip deposit via the TPR Store: http://www.themeparkreview.com/store/index.php?categoryID=84 For more information about these trips, download the flyers here: http://www.themeparkreview.com/events/events.htm People who have been on a TPR trip say they have had the "tim
  6. See that's what I don't understand. We've been doing MNSSHP for the past 4 years on a sold out Friday night and it's never a problem. They limit the number of tickets to WAY lower than your average day at MK and the lines are never long. We walked right onto Space Mountain 3 times, Splash, Thunder, Mansion, Pirates, etc. It was an awesome night! Glad you guys all liked the TR! --Robb
  7. We made a run over to Busch Gardens Tamps for some floorless SheiKra It's pretty much the same, which is cool because this coaster is awesome! Kumba is still my favorite of all B&M's! OMG!!! Construction update!!! We headed over to Cypress Gardens to check out Starliner. This was a pretty "average" coaster at Miracle Strip and it's pretty much and "average" coaster here too. Fun, sure, but I doubt this will "save the park" from all the trouble it's had. In fact, the park was just purchased by some "real estate processors....so I wonder what that will mean for th
  8. Next up was Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! Magic Kingdom was decked out with lots of Halloween stuff. Hey look! Magic Kingdom's castle is doing it's Disneyland impression! =) The shirt says it all! =) The TPR group does a Haunted Mansion take over!!! I've always wanted to know what she's got on underneath that dress... I see the free candy, but where's the beer?" Space Mountain - 10 minute wait...which was really a walk-on...I love this event!!! Once again! Another TPR take over!!! How many people can you get in one Splash Mountain boat?
  9. On our way to Sea World we made a stop at Waffle House. I get my hash browns Smothered, Covered, Chunked, Peppered, and Topped! New credit for all of us.... ...with an AMAZING view! =) GRRR!! I'm Kraken. I'm not a sock puppet. I'm a real EVIL monster!!! Kraken was pretty awesome! Why must we always molest inanimate objects? This is a REALLY bad idea! I can't tell if that's a look of terror or a look of "special olympics" on Jow's face! WANDLESS SPACESHIP EARTH!!! "I just came!" This is what Gary says to Wes in the bedroom! . HA HA!
  10. Hey everyone! If you have followed Theme Park Review over the past few years you'll know that each year we take a trip to Orlando to check out many of the Halloween and other seasonal events. This year we visited Halloween Horror Nights, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Epcot's Food & Wine Festival, checked out Cypress Gardens' Starliner, Busch Gardens' Floorless SheiKra, and LOTS more! We produced TWO videos. The first is an interview with Universal Creative Director Michael Roddy where first he walks us through the "Nightmare on Elm Street" maze and then chats to u
