TR part 1-PKI 8/12
Well this is my first TR ever. I am an Acer’s but I am not one of those people who obsess over coasters. Yes, I have spent many hours huddled in front of my computer playing RTC and checking out coasters sites. However, I ride coasters for the fun of it. The same reason I am writing this TR. In my TR’s you will get my feelings and observations about the parks and rides I visit. I will throw in a little humor on the way and if I poke fun at some of my fellow coaster fanatics well get over it. Some people take this stuff way to seriously. In my reports I will not rank the rides or unfairly compare rides or parks to one another. Well on with the report.
Well, after a 9-½ hour drive from Richmond, VA and checking into my hotel I arrived at PKI at 5 p.m. on Sat. This is the first time I have been in a park on a Sat. since I last worked at PKD in 93. This is also the first time I have been to PKI in ten years. A lot has changed. My jaw drops as I get near the park and there is SOB standing tall. It is so cool to see that wooden structure that reaches to about the halfway point on the Eiffel Tower. So of course I went straight for WATER WORKS. Yes the coaster fanatic went to the water park first. Why? Well first off something that will come up a lot is the fact that I hate waiting in line. Do to my work I could only get off Sat.-Fri. so I had no choice. The second thing was that I was tired and just wanted to float around the lazy river for about 2 hrs. So I did just that. I do hate how they make you get out and get back in at some parks like this one. Hell, I was so relaxed the last few times I fell asleep on my round trip. One thing I thought the charge for the lockers was a little bit steep esp. if you want to go to the water park for a few hours. Well after that I walked around to see the park. I was hungry so I went to the Festhaus and had some pizza, fries and a drink all for 6 bucks. Not a bad deal and the pizza tastes 攀琀琀攀爀 琀栀愀渀 倀䬀䐀ᤀ猠⸀ 䠀漀眀攀瘀攀爀Ⰰ 䤀 搀漀渀ᤀ琠 欀渀漀眀 眀栀礀 琀栀攀礀 挀愀氀氀 椀琀 琀栀攀 䘀攀猀琀栀愀甀猀 愀渀礀洀漀爀攀 琀栀攀爀攀 椀猀 渀漀 猀栀漀眀 渀漀眀 樀甀猀琀 瘀椀搀攀漀 猀挀爀攀攀渀ᤀ猠 眀椀琀栀 䌀漀欀攀 氀漀最漀猀⸀ 䤀 琀栀攀渀 爀漀搀攀 吀漀瀀 䜀甀渀⸀ 吀栀攀 氀椀渀攀 昀漀爀 琀栀椀猀 椀猀 猀栀漀爀琀⸀ 吀栀椀猀 椀猀 琀栀攀 昀椀爀猀琀 猀甀猀瀀攀渀搀攀搀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀 䤀 栀愀瘀攀 爀椀搀搀攀渀 戀攀猀椀搀攀猀 琀栀攀 圀漀氀昀 愀琀 䈀䜀圀⸀ 䤀 琀栀漀甀最栀琀 椀琀 眀愀猀 愀 昀甀渀 戀甀琀 猀栀漀爀琀 爀椀搀攀⸀ 䤀琀 椀猀 渀椀挀攀 琀漀 爀椀搀攀 漀渀攀 眀椀琀栀 愀 搀椀昀昀攀爀攀渀琀 氀愀礀漀甀琀⸀ 一攀砀琀 椀猀 琀栀攀 刀愀挀攀爀 昀漀爀眀愀爀搀猀 愀渀搀 戀愀挀欀眀愀爀搀猀 愀 挀漀甀瀀氀攀 漀昀 琀椀洀攀猀⸀ 䤀 栀愀瘀攀 爀椀搀搀攀渀 愀氀氀 琀栀爀攀攀 搀椀昀昀攀爀攀渀琀 瘀攀爀猀椀漀渀猀 漀昀 琀栀椀猀 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀 栀攀爀攀Ⰰ 愀琀 倀䬀䐀 愀渀搀 倀挀眀椀⸀ 䤀 搀漀渀ᤀ琠 欀渀漀眀 眀栀礀 戀甀琀 䤀 氀椀欀攀 琀栀攀 刀愀挀攀爀 琀栀攀 戀攀猀琀⸀ 吀栀攀 漀渀氀礀 瀀爀漀戀氀攀洀 䤀 栀愀瘀攀 眀椀琀栀 愀氀氀 琀栀爀攀攀 椀猀 琀栀愀琀 琀栀攀 爀椀搀攀 漀瀀猀 搀漀渀ᤀ琠 猀攀攀洀 琀漀 戀漀琀栀攀爀 琀漀 洀愀欀攀 猀甀爀攀 琀栀愀琀 琀栀攀 ㈀ 猀椀搀攀猀 爀愀挀攀 氀椀欀攀 琀栀攀礀 甀猀攀搀 琀漀⸀ 圀栀椀挀栀 椀猀 愀 猀栀愀洀攀 戀攀挀愀甀猀攀 眀栀愀琀 椀猀 琀栀攀 瀀漀椀渀琀 漀昀 爀椀搀椀渀最 愀 爀愀挀椀渀最 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀 椀昀 椀琀 椀猀 渀漀琀 爀愀挀椀渀最⸀ 䠀漀眀攀瘀攀爀 椀琀 椀猀 愀 昀甀渀 爀椀搀攀 琀栀愀琀 爀愀爀攀氀礀 栀愀猀 愀 氀漀渀最 氀椀渀攀⸀ 䄀昀琀攀爀 琀栀愀琀 椀琀 眀愀猀 琀椀洀攀 昀漀爀 ㈀ 渀椀最栀琀 爀椀搀攀猀 漀渀 琀栀攀 䈀攀愀猀琀⸀ 圀栀愀琀 挀愀渀 䤀 猀愀礀 愀戀漀甀琀 琀栀攀 䈀攀愀猀琀 琀栀愀琀 栀愀猀渀ᤀ琠 戀攀攀渀 猀愀椀搀 戀攀昀漀爀攀⸀ 吀攀渀 礀攀愀爀猀 椀猀 眀愀礀 琀漀 氀漀渀最 戀攀琀眀攀攀渀 爀椀搀攀猀⸀ 䤀 氀漀瘀攀 琀栀椀猀 爀椀搀攀⸀ 吀栀攀爀攀 椀猀 渀漀琀栀椀渀最 琀栀愀琀 挀漀洀瀀愀爀攀猀 琀漀 愀 爀椀搀攀 漀渀 琀栀攀 䈀攀愀猀琀 攀猀瀀⸀ 愀琀 渀椀最栀琀⸀ 䤀 挀愀渀ᤀ琠 戀攀氀椀攀瘀攀 琀栀攀爀攀 愀爀攀 瀀攀漀瀀氀攀 漀甀琀 琀栀攀爀攀 眀栀漀 爀椀瀀 琀栀椀猀 爀椀搀攀⠀夀漀甀 欀渀漀眀 眀栀漀 礀漀甀 愀爀攀⤀⸀ 吀栀攀爀攀 椀猀 渀漀琀栀椀渀最 氀椀欀攀 椀琀 愀渀礀眀栀攀爀攀 攀氀猀攀⸀ 吀栀椀猀 漀渀攀 爀椀搀攀 椀猀 眀漀爀琀栀 琀栀攀 瀀爀椀挀攀 漀昀 愀搀洀椀猀猀椀漀渀⸀ 䠀漀眀 洀愀渀礀 爀椀搀攀猀 漀瘀攀爀 ㈀ 礀攀愀爀猀 漀氀搀 猀琀椀氀氀 栀愀猀 琀栀攀 瀀漀瀀甀氀愀爀椀琀礀 愀渀搀 氀椀渀攀猀 琀栀愀琀 琀栀椀猀 爀椀搀攀 栀愀猀⸀ 䤀 栀愀琀攀 氀椀渀攀猀 戀甀琀 䤀 眀椀氀氀 眀愀椀琀 栀漀眀攀瘀攀爀 氀漀渀最 椀琀 琀愀欀攀猀 琀漀 爀椀搀攀 琀栀椀猀 爀椀搀攀⸀ 吀栀攀爀攀 椀猀 渀漀琀栀椀渀最 氀椀欀攀 猀瀀攀攀搀椀渀最 琀栀爀甀 琀栀攀 眀漀漀搀猀 椀渀 渀攀愀爀 瀀椀琀挀栀 戀氀愀挀欀 搀愀爀欀渀攀猀猀 愀渀搀 琀栀攀 栀攀氀椀砀⸀ 䐀漀攀猀 愀渀礀 漀琀栀攀爀 爀椀搀攀 栀愀瘀攀 琀栀攀 昀椀渀椀猀栀 琀栀愀琀 琀栀椀猀 漀渀攀 搀漀攀猀⸀ 夀攀愀栀 椀琀猀 爀漀甀最栀 戀甀琀 最攀琀 漀瘀攀爀 椀琀⸀ 吀栀攀 栀攀氀椀砀 椀猀 猀椀洀瀀氀礀 愀眀攀猀漀洀攀⸀ 吀栀漀猀攀 漀昀 礀漀甀 漀甀琀 琀栀攀爀攀 眀栀漀 搀漀 渀漀琀 琀栀椀渀欀 琀栀椀猀 爀椀搀攀 椀猀 最爀攀愀琀 愀渀礀洀漀爀攀 挀愀渀 栀愀瘀攀 礀漀甀爀 䌀䌀䤀ᤀ猠 愀渀搀 䜀䌀䤀ᤀ猠 ⠀渀漀琀 琀栀愀琀 䤀 搀漀渀ᤀ琠 氀漀瘀攀 琀栀攀洀 琀漀⤀ 䤀 眀椀氀氀 琀愀欀攀 吀栀攀 䈀攀愀猀琀 愀渀礀 搀愀礀 漀昀 琀栀攀 眀攀攀欀 漀瘀攀爀 愀渀礀 漀昀 琀栀攀洀⸀ 䤀昀 䤀 挀漀甀氀搀 漀渀氀礀 爀椀搀攀 漀渀攀 爀椀搀攀 椀琀 眀漀甀氀搀 戀攀 吀栀攀 䈀攀愀猀琀Ⰰ 攀渀甀昀昀 猀愀椀搀⸀ 䄀猀 䤀 栀愀瘀攀 攀瘀攀爀礀 渀椀最栀琀 䤀 栀愀瘀攀 戀攀攀渀 愀琀 倀䬀䐀 䤀 最漀琀 琀栀攀 氀愀猀琀 爀椀搀攀 漀昀 琀栀攀 渀椀最栀琀 漀渀 琀栀攀 䈀攀愀猀琀⸀ 吀栀攀 琀爀愀椀渀 洀愀礀 渀漀琀 愀氀眀愀礀猀 戀攀 昀甀氀氀 漀渀 琀栀攀 氀愀猀琀 爀椀搀攀 戀甀琀 琀栀ere is nothing cooler.

When I was there I liked the beast better then SOB. I like the layout the intensity, how overall smooth it is. It is right under a CCI in my book. I would say my third favorite woodie, after villain and ST. So what is the overall census on SOB. To me it was not rough, how was it for you??
Closing Time: 5:30
CP Arrival Time: 5:50
Whose Line is it Anyway?

I agree, the Beast is still a marval. I like to stand by the queue and watch people as they come off, especially first time riders from all over the country. The looks on their faces are priceless.
