Cedar Point - Magnum Dorney Park - Dominator Dorney Park - Talon

Magnum XL-200 - Cedar Point

July 2001

me, Greg G.

This picture is the first on-ride photo I ever purchased.  I am in yellow and my friend Greg from Michigan is next to me.  I have no idea who the goon choking himself is.

Magnum was the first 200+ foot steel coaster.  I remember the year it opened.  I waited nearly two hours to ride it.

Dominator - Dorney Park

September 2001

Dan, Brian, me, Dominic

It's kind of tough to see us, but here we are on Dominator at Dorney Park.  We are the side that shoots you down, as opposed to the red tower which shoots you up.

Talon - Dorney Park

September 2001

me, Brian

Next to me again is Brian, my friend Dan's boyfriend.  I think this photo was taken on my 6th or 7th lap on Talon that day.

Dorney Park - Steel Force

Steel Force - Dorney Park

September 2001

me, Brian

Steel Force is the sister coaster of Magnum.  They were built by different companies, but the design, styling, and colors of the two coasters are almost exactly the same.

I'm wearing the t-shirt that says "Skippy" (duh..... I love that t-shirt :)

Roar - Six Flags America

July 2002

me, Adrienne

One of the best wood coasters I've been on, this photo is from Roar at Six Flags America.  Adrienne has struck her usual pose here.  Not because she's trying to be a smart ass, but because she doesn't want to get my elbows in her face. :)

Superman: Ride of Steel - Six Flags America

July 2002

Adrienne, me

A sort of "baby-brother" to Millennium Force, Superman: Ride of Steel at Six Flags America is a fast and fun Intamin hypercoaster.

Power Tower - Cedar Point

August 2002

Brian, Dan, me

It looks just like Dominator at Dorney Park, but the Power Tower is 40 feet taller for a whopping 240 feet.  What a difference.

Mean Streak - Cedar Point

August 2002

Stephen, me

Mean Streak gets a bad rap nowadays.  In its first years, it was a killer fast and intense wood coaster.  Unfortunately, time hasn't been kind to Mean Streak, but it is still a fun ride.

Millennium Force - Cedar Point

August 2002

Dan (front); Greg G., me (middle); Len, Stephen (back)

Big.  Farking.  Fast.  Roller coaster.  Where to even begin to describe Millennium Force.  It's 300+ feet and 90+ mph and one helluva ride.

Nitro - Six Flags Great Adventure

June 2002

Janko, me, Adrienne, Stephen

Thank god this photo doesn't show how hot and sweaty we were on our trip to Great Adventure.  This Nitro on-ride photo was taken in the evening, after the sun had set, but certainly NOT before the heat and humidity had let up.  It was nearly 100 degrees all day, and the humidity had to be around 150%.

My former roommate Janko is sticking his tongue out.

Nitro - Six Flags Great Adventure

June 2002

Janko, Stephen, Adrienne, me

Same people, different seats, same coaster, different time of day, same freakin' heat.

Steel Force - Dorney Park

October 2002

me, Adrienne

This was the last weekend Dorney Park was open for 2002.  Don't even ask what the hell we were doing.
