So last year I decided it was time to bring my camera back to the park for some photo-taking fun. It's so much fun finding spots and taking great pictures. Of course I had to bring my camera on a couple dreary days, but since everyone seems to enjoy those pics, why not?

This year I plan on snagging a few more great pictures. :)


One of my favorite parts about the skyride. This was my FB profile banner for the longest time.


No punch backs!


Can't wait to hang out with some of you this Friday.
RE: I heard you guys like photos

I really like all of these, great shots!

The Griffon one is very nice. The Sun really enhances the picture and timing it with the train hanging over the edge was great. Plus, Griffon probably has the coolest sign in the whole park.
RE: I heard you guys like photos

Ready for part 3?


I hope you got my good side.


The cheetah in its natural habitat.


What are your chances of getting three ride vehicles in one shot?

Yesterday's concert was totally awesome and totally worth the long wait. Me and a few friends basically stayed for the whole show, despite the slightly annoying drunk heckler behind us and the meh seats halfway across the amphitheater. Instead we were treated to a nice view of the coasters.

Griffon went down, so we got to see the ride's evac platform in action going up the lift. It was nice.

Part 4: Follow me on Instagram @bananasnbacon - I should be uploading more photos to deviantART soon enough.


Happy 35th anniversary to the Loch Ness Monster

In honor of Verbolten's one-year anniversary, I decided to post some Oktoberfest pics.


I hope you aren't afraid of a few ghosts. Especially ones as cute and huggable as those.


This place is almost like my second home really.


The Black Forest is dangerous. Please mind the warning signs and stay out of the forest.

Happy Birthday to Verbolten, one of the best rides in the entire park. I've logged probably over 120 rides on the thing and it still never gets old. The coaster itself is fun, fast, and intense. Not only that, but the attention to detail put into the whole ride is unbelievable.

- If you haven't ridden it yet, I HIGHLY recommend it.
Its been a while since I updated this thread with pictures so here's some more from various places I've been.


I take better Instagram shots than the park does lol


Three trains. One shot! The lighting would've been better but I wanted to get the perfect shot and it was a little rushed.


The Boardwalk vs. the Lightning. I like how Lightning Racer sits up against the beach themed water park. Just wish it wasn't too crowded.


I'm sure you all know what this is.

Bonus random shot

I actually liked Great Bear a little more than I liked Alpengeist.

No, it used to. Then that guy was given a lift and became Mr. Happy Demon. The heat is on here at Illuminights' Howl-O-Scream's reimagined France!

Contrary to what the park wants you to think, this is NOT the last night of Howl O Scream.


Despite looking crappy during the day.


Demon Street looks amazing at night.


Contrary to what people think.


Quick! Somebody call the Doctor! There's a murderer loose in Banbury Cross. Or is it London?


Turns out, he's really a vampire. And he doesn't sparkle.

Sometimes I wish Howl O Scream would last forever. :(
Time for a thread bump!

Christmas Town has started. Every day is merry and bright!

Who likes penguins?

I don't have as many Christmas Town pics online right now, so here's a few leftover HOS shots.

This is what happens to the drunk unruly guests.

It's still technically fall so this picture fits.

How may I serve you?

Stay tuned for more Christmas Town stuff.
Now THIS is Christmas

Beautiful Festhaus

Fire and Ice

I hope you look even more beautiful next year

Were you naughty or nice this year?

(seriously all of you guys seem to criticize Scott over his tackiness, yet Christmas Town and HOS both looked fantastic)

I was heading out when I took this picture. It was shortly after I dropped my camera, so the image didn't turn out as well as I hoped. I still think it looks great. I'll probably edit it and post it to Instagram later.

Today's my birthday too! What a good day!
Happy Birthday netdvn!! We missed you opening weekend. We didn't see you at your hanging spot the few times we went by. Happy Holidays, too!!!!

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! First pictures of 2014 to come. I still have more great pics waiting to processed from summer through CT, so expect to see more in the coming weeks.


Waterfall at the park entrance

If only they put this much effort into HOS decorations

I think I might've went a little crazy on the Instagram filters lol

Actually no, I went a lot crazy lol

A great looking light show. Yeah I know it's not, but people seem to crowd around it like it is.

Don't forget the true meaning of Christmas! It looks almost like a painting :D

Thanks for another beautiful season at Christmas Town and a fantastic 2013 season. It was filled with its fair share of ups and downs, but it was overall a great year.

All three shows were fantastic and the park looked as beautiful as ever. Miracles became my favorite show of the year and Gloria a VERY close second place. Deck the Halls was about as good as it was last year.

- See you in 2014
I can't believe we're nearing the end of January. Super Bowl is coming up :D Weather's been a bit too crazy lately though.

Alpengeist - I've been toying around with filters lately, sticking them on images to see if they'd work. This picture was already kinda dark when I took it. I like the way it turned out.

Food & Wine Festival collage. I have pics of a few more booths lying around.

Do you prefer a Styx concert or a ride on Griffon?

I already miss the warm weather :(
