Well, it's not part of the Live, but it's part of my trip, so **** it!

Jerry and I went to the New Jersey State Fair last night, after watching the NYC 4th July fireworks, which were AMAZING! Not bad at all considering I'd just got into the country, had it in my head that we were waking up ridiculously early for the first day of the Live, so wasn't expecting to be doing anything.

The fair was pretty cool, much bigger than anything I've been to in the UK (though I've only ever really been to very small local fairs).

There were four CREDZZZ there, but we didn't bother with the go-gator or Wacky Worm, just the spinning mouse and the Pinfari.

Jerry has a lot more pictures, which I'm sure he'll put up later, but here's a few that he's put up on Facebook already:

Second day was fun as the day was good at the Hersh. Besides being 100F and 95% humidity.. the lines were short and sexy. Also.. Gavin and the kids without the credit had fun on Rollersoaker.. :lol:

If you sit backwards you don't get wet at all. We drenched a group of kids when we rode. Was AMAZING. That ride rocks. <3

Cheers Jerry :p

As long as you beat Taylor every time, I'm happy ;)

Did you teach her the shark fin method?

Enjoy King's Dominion, another park I miss :(

It was really cool to meet all of you at KD today! It sucks I didn't get to stay long but I had a great time while we were all there.

Hopefully I can join you all for more of these things in the future

Ditto! We all enjoyed you around Dan.. we missed you when you departed. Hopefully see you again soon buddy.



As for the day.. KD was okay but not spectacular. Got all my credits.. lol.. but disappointed with almost everything besides Volcano (which is epic) and Dommy (which has always been epic). 305.. the reason for the trip anyway.. disappointed much more then I thought. Without the trim? Top 3 coaster. With the trim? Barely top 30.

BUT! Tomorrow is BGW.. yumm.
