I hope I am posting this in the right place. I finished my blog on the Insider tour that was taken this past Saturday. Our little group had a blast and here is my overview:

I am sure Zachary is working hard to put together an amazing extensive all-out sweet report. Zachary, I understand how time consuming these reports are- I still have no idea how you can keep up with everything.

Do you hire magic gnomes to run the site when you sleep? If you sleep at all. :)

Thanks everyone for the kind reviews. I had so much fun being a part of the tour. I, as well as the rest of our group, were completely in our element- our natural habitat.

We were Born for Busch Gardens! :D

That post can also be considered the most extensive collection of pictures of me available anywhere.

I do have more! I always enjoy taking pictures of my friends in photos. It makes the experience more real when you look back on them years later.

The heights in that first picture are horrifically distorted. Second one is a ton more accurate.

Might jump on that. but I've been on the roller coaster insider tour before. Is it really worth it? I guess the only differences here would be we'd get to see behind the scenes at pompeii and darkastle. We get the bakery tour as well. I'm not sure what the landscape tour of the italian gardens is. and I've already ridden all the rides and have seen Nessie's maintenance bay.

Should I do it?

Yes. Behind the scenes of DarKastle and Escape from Pompeii are well worth it. Especially at $40 per person. They give you a platinum meal voucher for lunch too which, in itself, is worth a good chunk of cash.

The Coaster insider tour allows you to be transported up in the maintenance car and walk along the platform on the very top of Griffon. Honestly, that in itself is worth the cost of the coaster tour. Seeing Nessie's Maintenance Lair as well as Alpie's domain is an added bit of awesomness.

Wonder if one person can use this deal and just do the tour twice?

If anyone does the Ultimate Insider tour anytime soon, please let me know- I have three or four picture requests. Smartphone pictures will do- no need for anything fancy.
