What they are saying

The first day of each tour is a great opportunity. For some, it's a chance to look forward to upcoming coasters but for everyone it's an opportunity to meet new friends and reunite with old ones. My first day of my first trip in 2006 was different though. We were driving down to Florida. I knew some people already because my brother, cousin, and my brother's friend were all on the trip, but they were all older than me. In fact, I was the youngest camper on tour and there was only one camper that was entering the same grade as me. I had met some people at orientation and my brother and cousin knew people from 2005to introduce me to. Still, I wanted to make friends of my own, meet new people. I will never forget the first time I made my first real friend at TCT. I was sitting by myself making sure that I was close to those I already knew, it's funny how insecure you can feel around so many new people. All of a sudden a girl whom I had never met before who had ! gone on the first week sat in the seat next to me. "Are you new here," she asked with a soft smile that made me forget how lonely I felt. "Yes," I was surprised I could make out that much. "Don't worry, you're going to make amazing friends, ThrillCoaster is an amazing experience." She didn't lie, that first friend I made gave me confidence to go and make new friends. I met so many people that would change my life forever. ThrillCoaster Tours is a wonderful way to make new friends. While bonding about your love for coasters, you meet tons of people and Ira makes sure that no one is left out. I have made countless friends at this camp that I hope will last for a lifetime. I will never forget my first TCT friend. -- Camper 2006, 2007

Tomorrow evening, all the campers and couselors will meet up and prepare to head out to California, for two incredible weeks of nonstop thrills. I had the time of my life on this tour two years ago, and this year's tour promises to be every bit as amazing. This year, the tour will be more interactive than ever. In addition to the daily photos, you will now be able to follow us live on Twitter, (@thrillcoast) in additon to daily front-page blog entries.

For those of you who have been closely following the TOURnament, don't fret, it will continue to run throughout the summer, and the updates will be mixed in with the tour updates. The TOURnament is really heating up. Last week featured an absolutely amazing matchup of two coaster titans. Drawing a record number of votes, X2 triumphed over Maverick by only one vote. This week features another good matchup as the dueling, racing Lightning Racer faces off against it's southern brother, Thunderhead. Whether you prefer the near misses of Thunder and Lightning, or the twisting, dropping sensation Thunderhead delivers, check out each ride's page and choose for yourself.
