The Season Pass




Sept. 1, 2014

Happy Labor Day, Americans! And Happy Monday, everyone else! Part Six, the day at Nagashima Spaland, has been added to the Japan Trip Reports! That takes us past the mid-point; there's a few more to go before it all winds up with the Disney Resort grand finale. Which you will certainly enjoy in your Mars colonist living pod.

There are plenty of reasons why I've been so slow getting the Japan trip reports done; one of the biggest time-burglars has been this I don't know what else to call it but personal art project with music and some writing and some design: Audio Enematron X. You have my sincere apologies.

The Behemoth

The Nagashima Spaland trip report is coming next, in August. I'm almost positive.


July 13, 2014

Today we've got a special guest review of Six Flags Great America's new Goliath, by CM Venom! MUST. GET TO. CHICAGO!

Feb. 12, 2014

Hey, the first official update for 2014! About time, right?

So here is Part Four of the Japan Trip Reports, featuring Hirakata Park, a Shinto temple that will blow your mind and more Kyoto randomness. Enjoy.

Happy Holidays!


Dec. 22, 2013

Check out the new Season Pass website; it is extremely fetch.


Nov. 3, 2013

Now that the Halloween season has drawn to a close (I'm kind of suffering a little bit of withdrawal...), I'm going to get back to the Japan trip reports. Here's Part Three, for Universal Studios Japan.

Also, have you been listening to all The Season Pass Halloween insanity? There's hours and hours of it, and it ain't over yet.


Sept. 18, 2013

If you haven't seen it over at Theme Park Review yet, here is Part Two of the Japan 2013 Trip Report. Brace yourself for some hot and heavy love for Tobu Zoo's Kawasemi.


Sept. 8, 2013

It begins: the first of many reports from the Theme Park Review Japan 2013 Trip is up, with a load of Tokyo photos, including the Senso-ji Temple, Hanayashiki Amusement Park and more! Enjoy!

July 16, 2013

The Season Pass interviewed Tony Baxter earlier this year and he graciously allowed us to do so in his home. Here's a photo report.


June 21, 2013

Did I mention that I'm going to Japan? With Theme Park Review? I think I did. Anyway. I leave tomorrow HOLY FREAKING DAMN. I cannot wait.

Before I go, here's a little report from the Knott's Berry Farm media day for the Timber Mountain Log Ride and the new Boardwalk attractions.


March 24, 2013

Finishing up the trip reports from last summer's Season Pass Southern sojourn, here's the Six Flags Over Georgia write-up, with TPR Deep South Bash backstage tours of Monster Mansion and the SFOG boneyard, too!


Feb. 9, 2013

Outlaw Run, at Silver Dollar City, making test runs, and looking completely off the hook sick:

I can not wait until Rocky Mountain gets their hands on Colossus.


Jan. 17, 2013

First update for the New Year! And before the first month of the New Year is over! Woo-hoo! It's the Carowinds trip report, the second edition of reports from last summer's Season Pass voyage.


Nov. 25, 2012

I hope everyone who lives in a place that celebrates Thanksgiving had a great one, and a long weekend, as well; I most definitely did. Part of what made my weekend so swell was finishing up a 20-page photo trip report of last summer's visit to Dollywood. What a place. That report is finally complete and posted for your consumption.

Coming next will be a look at Carowinds.


Nov. 4, 2012

As long as the Halloween season has become, it's still over far too soon for my tastes. *Heavy sigh* Regardless, please enjoy this report from Six Flags Discovery Kingdom's Fright Fest.

What a day.

If you haven't heard, this one company bought this other company. And this transaction got a few people a little excited.

Okay, so first there's the news that more Star Wars movies (plural!) are coming, soon, starting in 2015. And they won't be directed by George Lucas. Then, there's whatever Disney has cooked up already and will continue to cook up for its theme parks. I have no clue what those things are or will be, but I'll bet that some of them are going to make Star Tours look like a Wisdom Astro-Liner. (Which, by the way, first debuted in 1977, the year Star Wars opened and how's that for some useless trivia?)

All I can think to do is to republish here some of my tweets from earlier today:

"The Disney/Universal theme park war just went thermonuclear. IT'S ON."

"If Harrison Ford even cameos in EP 7, my brain will explode."

"How is it possible this deal remained a secret until officially announced? INTERNET, YOU FAILED BIG TIME."

"We can't even BEGIN TO IMAGINE the stuff they're going to do. Good grief..."

"Okay, okay, okay... still trying to catch my breath... But what if... DEATH STAR TRENCH RUN ROLLER COASTER OMFG?!?!?!"

(I got more than a little excited, obviously.)

Suffice to say, today is a red-letter day for geeks of many different stripes. To paraphrase that beautiful Sound of Music song, we must have done something good.
