Obviously there is no weight limit on this ride!:wow:
I love the Red X ride!!:thumbsup:
Aww look they brought Cody along with them.
The roller coaster had to have slowed down to a crawl with that much beef riding on it.
Thead Hijack here....
I miss the old log ride from the old Elitch's - with the goofy animated lumberjacks...
and the bubble gum tree?
I forgot about that! I am trying to remember if I put any gum on there.....
I don't know why that tree sticks out to me, but it was the first thing I thought of when you mentioned the log ride.
Ow. My eyes are blinded by the white. I'll never complain about the Nike jersey again.
And which one gets to be the coverboy on the charity beefcake calendar?
Me too. Do you guys know the fate of that tree?
Rep to whoever can come up with the name to the log ride at old eliches
The Splinter (I googled it though:smile2
I want to say it was the Lumberjack, but it could have been the Splinter. Too many wasted braincells since then to remember correctly.
It's nice to see the big boys have fun :smile2:

Yep it was the splinter. I loved that ride. I really miss old Elich gardens.
Man, those boys need to get out in the sun more? How long did it take Elitches to re-water the ride when they were finished?
Yea I also like how it was nestled into an urban neighborhood, kind of like the old ballparks. I hate to see stuff like that go away. :sad1:
At least they kept some original structures around like the carousel and the theater, although last I heard the theater was just sitting there decaying and not being restored. It's too bad that places like Ebbets Field or Shibe Park have not even a trace of them left standing. I love what they did in Pittsburgh with keeping a portion of the original outfield wall and flagpole in place.
Beats tubing down the Boulder Creek.
So who's who?
Miller and ...? in the front
Bahr and Givens behind them
Can't tell who are in the next two rows but think that's Adtkins in front of the little kid and then Cody and Mohler in the back with a kid..
I thought the kid was Cody.
I was wondering who'd be the first to swing at that softball I threw out there. Well done. :lol:
Well I swung earlier in the thread but I must have fouled it off. :smile2:
I think you got 'em both...being the obtuse one I am, missed the first one.
i got it the first time. i laughed.
i also agree with the poster above there seems to be a bit of a shirtless "beefcake" angle to this year's fall camp photos. :huh:
That looks like Daniels in the front row with Miller.
Miller is yoked. If he gets any bigger his head is going to look like Beetlejuice.
It could be worse:
