My sentiments exactly...

Take a look at this picture. Notice the kid in the front seat. Not only does his Dad have a chokehold on him, but his expression is an exact representation of how I felt on my first ride on Voyage. It's priceless!



I actually took that pic and thought the same thing. I was taking 3 shot bursts at the time and in each of them the dad continued the headlock.

I found it amusing but didn't think that anyone else would spot it.

I don't always crop the shots down but when I'm processing them I like to zoom in on individual faces. The Voyage has produced some of the best expressions I've seen. :0

Great pic!

You know, after waaaaaay too many years of looking at/taking coaster pictures myself, I have found that they are only interesting if they capture people's reactions and expressions.

I hope the headlock is to make sure the kid doesn't go flying out. I love when parents pull crap like that: "Don't worry, boy, if that restraint fails, I've still got you!"

Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!

It's more like, don't worry boy, if the restraint fails, I'll still have your head. ;)

I think it's more like, "I love you and I'm glad you're sharing my hobby. It is something we'll always have in common."

It's more like "Damnit, Voyage made me piss my pants again, here I'll just wipe it on junior's shirt, he'll never know the difference."
1st trip: "Dad, hold me in"

2nd and all consecutive trips that follow: "Cut it out, Dad, people will think I'm a sissy..."


Dad: Smell the Magic Armpit, junior! Smell it!
Kid: (thinking) Where's the nearest BellTower and an M-16???)

Sort of reminds me of taking my kids for their first rides on CLP's Blue Streak. Pics like that are priceless.
