13 Times on the Tower of Terror on Friday the 13th (July 2007)
A much needed day of Fun.The Tower of Terror –one on my favorite rides in bothFloridaandSouthern California–gets a moment to shine today.A myspace friend ofmine and fellow micechatter –Cat –threw together an awesome day of13 Times on the Tower of Terror on Friday the 13th
"Rikes" Scooby Doo
"Rrr no "Scoobyshakes his head indicating no
"How about forScooby Snack"Shaggy
" Rrr ah"Scoobystill shakes his head
"Two Scooby Snacks" Shaggy
Now that we have convinced Scoob to go on the ride –Here is the photo blog mainly from my pictures of the day–
(I will indicate when the pictures are not of my own taking)
I meet up with the group of folksatthe La BreaBakery--right outside the park.This is one of the few places in all of the Disneyland Resort that I hadn't eaten before."Umm breakfast"
After breakfast and introductions --having never meet anyone there in person before the day begin.We all headed off to Challenge the Tower.(LuckilyI had myTiki God to ward off the evil spirits )
As we approached the Tower loomed over us mocking us if you will
The wait time was short and appropriately 13 Minutes (coincidence I think not)
A Bell Hop menacingly glared at us as we approached for the first time of the day
The Great Tiki Impresonating the Brillant Rod Serling
This is a Service Elevator "Yada --Yada --Yada"
Right before the first ride of the day
Survivng the first drop we headed back around the corner to go for number 2
The line was non existent
"Fast Passes --We don't need no stinking Fastpasses"
Here are some random lobby shots --(They really need to clean this place--they were cobwebs everywhere)
Now randomness from the library
The Service Elevator waiting area
The Cruel shoes Evil befalls those that wear them
On the 11th Trip the Elevator Shuttered and broke and was closed after our ride. "A warning perhaps?" Was the ride trying to give us the Shaft? (If you know what i mean)
We tried to convince one of the Bell hops that we had seen numerous times to join us for number 13 (this photo courtesy of Cat) -
"Gobble Gooble Gobble Gooble --One of us --one of us" (Freaks he must have thought)
Anyway --something happened on the 13th ride
" I kid I kid"
No we survived it .
Goofy was outside ---Just being well Goofy"
Here is a group photo --I'm Python style --Sir not appearing in this picture
Oh I'm in this one (Props again to Cat)
I call this one ---The Ocean's 8 Plus one behind the camera shot
After finishing up early with the Tower thanks to short lines. We hit Screaming--and Haunted Mansion--Pirates --and Indy--Star Tours and Space.
Thanks to everyone that went for a wonderful day. There were ups and downs and ups again and some more downs ---(Well you get the picture)
--the longest amount of time I've spent in the park since the line for Nemo (knee slapper alert)
