HERE ARE THE PICTURES

Image
the adventure started Friday night I had to get my Go Bananas credit in chicago. yeah i showing off my hat

Image
he already got the credit so he sat out

Image
yeeah

Image
only mature people will get this joke :wink:

Image
i still see jeepers

Image
ended up only getting 30 mins of sleep because we were having a RCT2 play off...and we got up around 7

Image
im locked in the back seat for the next 9 hours of driving :twisted:

Image
windows were to dirty

Image
the GPS aka "Nancy" didnt have a charger that worked so we were lucky that it didnt die and we only had it on when we needed it.

Image
we passed this car, pulled off so I could put oil in the car (was 2 quarts low) :shock: then we passed it again about 45 mins later

Image
this was Jeepers #1

Image
anyone find it interesting that there slogan is "food, fun ,and a monkey". Yet the ones near detroit do NOT have the "and a monkey" part

Image

Image
I let Aaron use my video camera so I could take pics

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
CREDIT!

Image
i see a big ball

Image
Michigan is like a mirror image of home up in Wisconsin

Image
Jeepers #2 see the slogan change? Also the closer we got to detroit the cheaper the tickets got. Chicago was $3.75 yet these were all $1

Image

Image

Image
woohhh!

Image
yeah I cant wait to go on it again!

Image

Image

Image
ghetto

Image
the anticipation is building the closer we get to detroit

Image
bored...

Image
Nancy...please dont mess up!

Image
its like were going into hell

Image
were NOT going in there without a weapon...yes it was THAT scary in the mall. It was a Saturday aswell so it was packed. We got so many evil looks and comments we just wanted to get out of there

Image
this credit was AMAZING. Fast Lift, trimless, LOW ceiling. I actually hit my head on it.

Image

Image
this one had strobes in the tunnel

Image
notice the slogan?

Image
we already had got pulled over in Michigan because they had suspicion of drugs...and now were getting into Canada. The border patrol didn't understand why we would go ride a kiddie coaster and stay for the night so they had to search our car.

Image
this is where we stayed. It was part of the resort of "Wild Zone"

Image
there looking at the breakfast billboard like it heaven

Image
to bad it ended up sucking and being overpriced

Image
we can drink, go swimming, ride rides, smoke, whatever...where in Canada. But of course someoene had to credit there Crapper credit.

Image
i got the cot

Image
we also made legal Krantom Tea

Image
the "BEER RUN"!!

Image
I really loved it here

Image
looks more like "weeds"

Image
I guess cigarettes in Canada are all white filters. I had American Newports (the brown filters)

Image
its too early and im not with it

Image

Image
lol

Image
we then played pool

Image
they also had a roller scooter maze

Image
intense game! I kicked ass

Image
then we played shuffle board

Image
i love the Canada Dollar

Image

Image
wooow

Image
thank god, I did not want to exchange another $20

Image
the operators though we all had wrist band and they never took out tickets (we even asked and they didnt care)...the Jew was happy

Image

Image

Image
we had to ride everything

Image

Image

Image
theres the Tivoli small

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
this coaster was fun, too bad we broke it :lol:

Image
it had a tunnel

Image
they also had a big ass mirror maze. This was when the supervisor asked for tickets. The 1 op that operated the rides and rode with us got yelled at :( She was even giving me looks ;)

Image
they will never know where back here

Image
leaving

Image
back into the car

Image
WEEDS INN

Image
Canadian McDonald's

Image

Image
Canadian walmart

Image
look all the way to the left...you can the the "?" sign

Image

Image
at the border

Image

Image
back in Detroit...its a ghost town

Image
back in Chicago at 11:00pm had a 2.5 hour drive back to Wisconsin. and I snapped this

Image
and I leave you with this

If you tell the border agents you are entering or coming back from Canada specifically to ride roller coasters, you are labeled in their minds as up to no good, and they will search your car inside and out. Every time I used amusement parks to enter Canada I've been searched. Last few times I just said, vacation/sightseeing and they tell you to enjoy your visit to Canada and let you cruise right on though :)

Also Canada trades with Cuba, so a lot of people try and smuggle Cuban cigars back into the US from Canada which is illegal, so coming back into the US you are more likely to get searched anyways, especially if you give them a hyper-specific answer on why you are crossing the border.
Favorite Wood Coasters: The Voyage, Ravine Flyer II, Thunderhead, Balder

Parks visited: 222, Coasters Ridden: Steel: 822, Wood: 178, Total: 1000

Gee, I didn't know making complicated and distorted sex jokes equaled maturity.

Well it started with "we are going to a indoor theme park/resort"

then they asked:
-what is your purpose
-whats so special about this place
-where is it
-why
-why
-why

he was just being a real dick to us. I was texting on my phone and he was like "WHO ARE YOU TALKING TO"? Then when they searched out car we parked and the people where like "park over there" and we said "oh well they told us to park over here". Then the person was like "WELL IM TELLING YOU TO PARK OVER THERE"!

We also had kratom tea in our car but we didn't know where it was. It is legal in Chicago and it looks just like weed in the baggy and everything. Turns out it was sitting under the seat, which they checked. When we got pulled over in Michigan for using the left lane on the interstate, you cannot drive in the left lane unless you are passing, the cops gave us a hard time for the tea because they though it was drugs. And the tea is just a depressant that is like a buzz off of pain killers and a few beers. But it is legal almost everywhere.

Strange, when I went up there we told him we were going to theme parks and he was like.."um, well enjoy your stay in Canada?" and let us through. Whole thing took maybe 2 minutes.

The US people on the other hand total dickweeds.

It's why I don't drive that much and when I leave out of state I ALWAYS fly. Hate driving anyway. That coaster looks awfully familiar...

I think that it depends on where you cross. Niagara Falls is more of a tourist area so they might be used to it. We crossed in ghetto Detroit.

Fun time, haan :?
Next time, tell them you are going on vacation/sightseeing. And when they say enjoy your visit, then tell them, we going roller coaster too. Will they search the car then?
