What a great park. I love all the little countries. It is very clean and very beautiful. I headed over to Apollo's Chariot. I was a little disappointed, not because it's a bad ride, but because it's not a Nitro. When I first entered the parking lot and saw the coaster there, I thought that it was going to be another Nitro. It is still a great coaster though and I rode it a few times. I like the back the best.

Next was the Big Bad Wolf. About the same kind of thrill as you get from ID at CP, maybe a little better.

I went back to Alpengeist but it was closed so I hit the Loch Ness Monster. Another good Arrow looper.

I walked around and took a lot of pictures. Then I went to the stable to see the horses. I can't believe how big they are. WOW. Then I went to Beer School. Free beer! Just little sips though. :( I bought a shirt and took my diploma and shirt back to my truck (I love having the trams) and headed back to Alpengeist. It was running now nad about a 45 min. wait. Increadable ride in the back. I rode it later in the front and got another increadable ride. I just love B&M coasters. More line jumping though and I told the ride op about it and pointed out the people who jumped. He told the ride superviser and he said that they couldn't do anything unless they witnessed it. That was the only line jumping that I saw at BGW, but it still upset me a little that they didn't do anything about it.

Escape from Pompeii was well themed and I enjoyed it. Corkscrew Hill was also good.

I had a great day and took in some of the shows. I got a sampler plate at Oktoberfest and a few beers. Great shows and good food. It was hard walking through the park with all of the food aromas in the air as I'm trying to diet.

A few more rides after the shows and back to the hotel.

Sounds like you had an *incredible* time. :)

BTW, which other B&M inverteds have you been on. How does Alpengeist compare and which is your favorite?

I've been on Raptor, Talon, Batman The Ride, Great Bear and Alpengeist. I love them all but maybe Alpengeist is now my favorite, it's the longest, with Raptor a close second. They are all great. *** Edited 6/8/2004 10:20:31 PM UTC by CP ismyhome***
