Six Flags Over Georgia and the RCDB page

We started with the Georgia Scorcher which is a Stand up looper with some very nice pacing. Then went to the Mind Bender which is a Schwartzkopf looper – 2 verticle loops, one other horizontal loop) which was so much fun we ran around and rode it again. Ahhh, the brilliance of Anton. Too bad he is gone and so few places see the value of rides that are just plain FUN.

Batman the Ride is like all the others but nice enough. We then went on Thunder River (White Water Canyon) and it was COLD but fun. Deja Vu (boomerang type but huge) was down all day (as of August it still says 'opening later this season' .. huge track with vertical tails). So, off we went to the Great American Scream Machine which is a nice out and back woodie made by John Allen (who made Beastie and Racer at PKI plus Yell and Scooby at PKD). Very nice ride (out around a lake with some nice bunny hops and skids).

Then to Superman Ultimate Flight which is a flying coaster and a VERY nice one. I think I have to ride the one at Great Adventure and this one again to really decide between them (the things I will do for ratings). Very large and swoopy, unfortunately, due to power problems from storms in the area the rides were up and down a bit.

Then over to the 1908 PTC Carousel with HUGE horses (some of them are larger than Dancer was). The features were slightly coarse for a PTC and I didn't notice any PTC trappings but the expressions were darling and the forelocks amazing. This is the first carousel that I have ridden with 4 separate armor horses. Cool! Then we got some food (pizza) and tried to ride the tiny coaster but it was down.

Off to the Mine Train which was rather excellent and the Georgia Cyclone which has TINY seats but a nice ride. The flume was reasonable but wetter than we anticipated. Off to grab the camera and take pictures (from the train among other ways). Then a storm headed our way and we were in-line for Superman (after the power had been up enough to get it running again) and were next to ride when they closed the ride down (we later heard that there were tornado watches in Georgia), discretion being the better part of valor (esp. with the camera with us), we left before the worst of the storm hit (got in the car and SPLAT fell some large drops on the windshield). Off for dinner and I couldn't remember where the CrackerBarrel was (oops), had a nice dinner (when we finally found it), and headed back to the hotel to pack and relax before coming home.

I really liked the rides at this park and wish that the storms and power problems hadn't made it difficult to get some of the re-rides I wanted. I also wish I had time right after the trip to write the whole thing up but alas, it wasn't meant to be. We started write ups while on the road but were sometimes too tired.

Day 9 - trip to Atlanta.
Leave at half past dawn from Houston hotel, and get to Dallas half-hour early despite a little bad traffic (after 4 hours of driving). Turn in rental car (very easy) and take shuttle to airport. Again, very easy, no real lines to get boarding pass or to go through security. Got lunch (little personal pizzas) and played a couple hands of Magic while waiting for the plane.

Plane trip started late due to inclement weather, and the trip had a few bumps, but nothing major. Snoozing and reading were the primary flight activities. Landed in Atlanta at 7pm (Eastern Time), got the rental car (Ford Taurus), and drove to the hotel (Holiday Inn Express again). Passed the Atlanta Six Flags on the way. Also stopped for dinner at a little fish place – fresh fish, but really slow service.

June 5 - Day 10
Georgia Ren Fest Day 1

long description of the day )

Some notes on the site and attractions:
The site is well laid out, easy to get from here to there in a few minutes, despite the generally large size of the place. Very attractive site, with well-kept buildings of interesting and unique designs. The site is of rolling hills, with a generous scattering of trees throughout providing much-needed shade. The entrance features a very nice pond/garden with sculptures of anthropomorphic frogs. Food was bountiful in good variety and at reasonable prices (esp. with the package we got). Sodas were in ice cold 20oz bottles for $2.50. Beer was a little pricey but not outrageous. Lots of rides for kids and adults, including various barrel swings, a twirling ride, pony ride. Very nice petting zoo (goats, sheep, ducks, chickens, potbellied pigs, horse, and even a highland cow (well, heifer). Lots of crafts, though nothing really stood out as unique compared to other faires though I did like the dinosaur eggs (geodes) and some very nice work. A few games and rides for the adults. They had a near-to-life-size jousting horse figure which patrons could sit on for pictures (for a price). One art shop featured framed reproductions of fantasy art (Waterhouse, etc.). They had a very nice print of "The Funeral of a Viking" by Dicksee. A very nice sword shop was housed in the aft half of a washed up ship. Very cool but a little crowded. There is a little wedding area near one stage. I think this is a bad idea. Just imagine "do you take this man to be your husband?" "what, I couldn't hear you over the crowd next door!" "I said, do you take this man…" "what?" There was a wedding going on while we were watching the Tortuga Twins. I can't even imagine… though at least the show we saw had a wedding march included (while the wedding area was being used).

Also, large number of hexagonal picnic tables with shade umbrellas. Programs were big and colorful, easy to read, with stage schedule on the same pages as the map (though the music throughout the village mentioned on the web site was not included in the schedule). The program also lists food and crafts, with all new items highlighted, and demonstration crafts tagged (and there were a lot of demos available). Unfortunately, actors are not given credit in the program, and the intro to the day is brief and vague ("welcome to 15th century England" is most of it). They also had a (very popular) misting bridge over the drainage area. The signposts (which were fairly frequent) pointed to stages, privies and drinks rather than being roadsigns.

Kids Stuff
The free kids' area was very thorough: swing set (with slide and mini-climbing wall), free craft area, right next to the petting zoo. They also had a Mother Goose (complete with live geese) just inside the front gate. Kids games/rides were throughout the site and seemed to be somewhat integrated to the site.

Notes on the characters:
King Richard and Eleanor of Aquitaine were the ruling monarchs for this 15th century fair. A Robin Hood storyline infused the village. A couple of street scenes during the day set up the plot: the Sheriff plans to eliminate the whole village, and Robin plans to stop him. The scene prepares for the Combat Chess game later in the day, in which Robin and the Sheriff will battle it out. We encountered a few characters on the street but it was rare. When we did, they were fairly unspecific greetings though we did see a big bit with 2 ladies getting love letters from the same duke. Very friendly though.

Notes on the day: Very hot and humid. Lots of sweating, sitting in shade, drinking Sprite.


On the way back to the hotel, lots more construction traffic. Sigh. Stopped at a local mall to check the movie listings (next showing of anything was 9:35, too late for us), so we got dinner at the food court, checked out Borders, then went to Krogers (major grocery chain) to get aloe gel for our sunburned necks and faces (since we were in too much of a hurry to sunblock in the morning … d'oh). Also got a few snacks for the plane ride home on Tuesday. Unfortunately, realized too late that the aloe gel also has menthol which I got to quickly wash off due to my allergies (menthol becomes mint-like when absorbed).


June 6, 2005 - Day 11
We saw the first part of the Robin Hood Story and it was cute (I loved the puppy). We caught the end of the Hack and Slash show (which Java has never had a chance to see) and stayed to watch the Zucchini brothers (juggling some weird stuff but good humor). Music wise I heard some of Melody Baird, some of the Lost Boys (Ren Rock and Roll except they are doing modern songs with period instruments but very well and have a strong following). One of the groups was Three Quarter Ale and I bought a CD. Nice voices and good interaction with each other and the crowd.

We saw a little of the Washing Well Wenches (fabulous costumes but the show didn't appeal to us ... we are not into harassing the audience). One of the highlights was the auction at the ship, every day at 4:00 they raffle off some swords and auction some stuff and put on a pretty good show ("Who Trusts The Pirate?" "Who will give me $15 for the next item ... then you find out what the item is). We caught the Condor show (beautiful bird) and the end of Dexter Tripp's Firewalk show (very cool ... well warm actually) and I ended up doing Privy Duty by pointing out (when I needed to use them) that some were available.

Vacation Day 7 (6/2/05)
Drive to Houston
A long drive but we had music and each other to talk to. We finally saw some oil derricks which were not working (another thing that just says Texas). We did see some more longhorns grazing (but mostly 'normal' beef cattle like Hereford crosses of some sort). There is a trend to put things on very large sticks to advertise them. We saw trucks, cars, jeeps, and a piano on a stick.

Found the hotel in Houston and had our Anniversary dinner at Olive Garden where we had a friendly, lonely, talkative waitress who gave Java small tastes of a couple of wines before he chose one (the house white) to go with his shrimp canaloni (I had the chicken alfredo.)

Vacation Day 8
Six Flags Astroworld

My navigation abilities were really bad for this section of the trip, we kept driving around the park, dodging construction (and the interstate) without finding a way in. It turns out to get to the park you park your car at the stadium and walk on a footbridge but the signs for the parking are not real clear from the direction we came in. Ooops. We got a locker for the camera near the front of the park and set off to RIDE.

SFAW rides )

We then grabbed the camera and took the Sky Ride (saw what was probably originally a marine mammal show then a diving show but currently closed), took pictures of the carousel (of course) and some other things, rode Greased Lightning 2 more times (I did mention it was FUN), the train, Viper, and Cyclone (which had a horribly long and slow moving ride, I don't know why it took about 2x as long to go the same distance compared to the morning and that was by the clock, not just perception). Did some shopping at 25% off (premium pass works down there) and hit the local burger chain (Whattaburger) for dinner and had some very tasty food.

Six Flags Fiesta Texas

This park is built in an old quarry so that the walls of the quarry surround the park. It makes the area feel rather unique. Since it was a hot day, we brought our stuff into the park right away and headed for the water park to drop stuff in a locker. The locker set-up here was very nice. You put your credit card into the machine and told it what size locker you wanted, it would charge you for the locker and assign one to you, you then chose a 4 digit code for your locker and it would unlock the locker. You put your stuff in and it automatically relocked the locker after it was closed for a certain amount of time. By doing things this way, we didn't have to worry about losing a key AND either of us could go to the locker whenever we wanted without worrying about having the key with us.

Then it was time to hit the rollercoasters. RCDB.details )

Off to change, empty the locker drop at the car and get the camera. Java graciously took pictures of lots of things for me (including the beautiful flamenco dancer near the entrance). The shots from the ferris wheel did not come out well (not a great location and getting dark). We did a re-ride on the flume and just missed getting a re-ride on the Mine Train. Then we visited customer service to make some comments (mostly good, one or two minor negative ones (like not closing the entrance to the line when closing at the end of the day) and found out about removal of jester/joker (a coaster that showed up on some maps of the park on the net). The park has nice statues, nice theming (especially the boardwalk area which really looked a lot like I imagine OC does ... all the rides were themed (the mini-tea-cups were tugboats). I was tempted by the sling shot ride but didn't go, the antique cars were 50s style. I did deliberately NOT ride the boomerang coaster since I strongly suspect I had been on enough siblings to understand its ride without a first hand (and painful) experience. The park is fairly clean, nice ride ops, fast loads, minor line jumping, VERY cute kiddie frog jumping ride (w/western saddles), kiddie rides throughout the park (in addition to a small kids section). Souvenir refills are a GoodThing

Scarborough Ren Fest Day 1
The day dawned cool and cloudy, the radio said 'afternoon thunderstorms likely' and off we went to the Scarborough Renaissance Festival. We had pre-ordered tickets (discount) so we didn't have to deal with the ticket lines (and saved some money). The parking lot is huge and much more friendly than I am used to. The rows are numbered (it would help if I actually paid attention to the numbers) and between the rows are some very pretty wild-flowers.

Walking up to the opening gate (we missed part of it) I was impressed with the size and design of the gate. It has the normal (to me) bridge over the gate proper but it also has a couple of towers, one of which has a jutting window for people to look out. When we got in hearing range, they were talking about hunting something more challenging and someone was sent into the crowd to pull people forward. A fair amount of the Opening Gate at that point was down on the ground level (instead of up on the bridge) and was rather hard to hear (partially due to crowd noise, partially due to participants pulling the crowd forward, partially due to lack of projection). The king (who looked fabulous and rather like the pictures of Henry) and queen (Anne Boleyn) were up top. After the regular show, some of the stage acts were called forward and allowed to do a fast (30 seconds or so) bit to encourage people to come to their show (basically a series of commercial breaks). Then the cannon fired (from a tower) and off we went. The season pass holders have their own line which could be better marked. They do give you little programs for free and sell larger ones. The problems with the little ones are that they can't fit all the stage schedules on one page (2 sheet faces) so you have to keep turning back and forth to check all the options at a given hour; the map is also a grey printing of the large color map in the large program so it is rather hard to read (as in the shop numbers are pixilated and medium grey). I would have preferred to see the schedule rotated 90 degrees so that the hours were on the top of the page with the stages going down the side. They may have been able to fit them all on one page that way. We did look at the larger program and it had a lot of really nice pictures (including the 4 winners in the photo contest from 2004 in color, the little ones had the B&W bitmaps). It also included short (3-4 paragraphs) explanations of the shows, some history and so forth. I did like having the faire divided up into sections that were marked on the map and on the schedule so it was easier to plan how to get from Point A to Point B.

We got in, watched part of music and dance just inside the gate then started wandering around a bit to orient ourselves to the site (which is spacious) and then the rain came (maybe 15 minutes after the gate). The joke is that everything is larger in Texas. Well, their 'scattered showers and thunderstorms' were larger than I am used to. It was a serious frog strangler with some fairly close lightning strikes (to the point that I was feeling the thunder … and it was affecting the power). So, we started checking out the shops. We saw some very nice stuff for sale but due to lack of space in the luggage didn't buy much. We watched the glassblowing show. Very nice arrangement with seats under a roof (which unfortunately leaked in places), 2 gathering places and 1 glory hole. One gathering place had colored glass, the other clear. Not as much explanation of what he was doing but some. Unfortunately (due to rain et al), he couldn't show us the finished piece in his hand. I had fun watching the resident cat getting around and being highly offended at water in HIS domain. There were some interesting shops throughout the site such as a pepper shop (with such interesting names as Dragons Breath and Phoenix Fyre), a bakery, a carved antler shop, etc.

I appreciated having the performers encourage us forward and their determination to get some fun out of the day. Duncan (of London Broil) was offering to do posed pictures, blurry pictures, etc.. The Corsairs (4 members today) were singing wonderfully in the downpour, gathering water in their hands and throwing it at each other. The stage they perform on (PegLeg stage) is a flat area in front of a rigged ship. The rain really didn't seem to faze them much at all (but they are sailors). Queen Anne's Lace (6 women, acapella) were wonderful with tight harmonies, friendly teasing among the members, playing in character between songs and while singing. We did buy a CD.

At the joust there were 4 knights (and their 4 squires) and the master of horse (also on horseback). The joust was not one of the best that I have seen though they did do some cool stuff. I did NOT like being encouraged to boo; booing is rude and it seems wrong for an emblem of chivalry to be booed. Since it was a scripted show, the knights weren't in full armor nor were the horses (the horses trappings were strictly cloth). I was worried about the horses wearing polos in that slop (sometimes when polo wraps get soggy they can slip and start binding in bad ways). The horses were beautiful and well trained. The knights saluting their sections with each knight on the outside was very well done (each would salute his section then drop back and maneuver to the inside while the other 3 moved out). Having the games set up so that 2 knights at a time could ride was cool (and having the rings being on the straight and on the diagonal was also cool). The rings were held by the squires in the early portions and in the later sets of rings the squires would throw them up and the knights would catch them in the air. The rings were rather large maybe 10 inches in diameter with an 8 inch target area (though the lances were not gaming lances with fine points). I did like how each knight was riding for 2 ladies (young girls) and the kids put their colors on the lance (with a lot of safety help from the squire who held the lance tip in case the horse shifted). The criss-cross jousting pattern was interesting (each jousted the other 2 bad guys multiple times on straight, diagonal, straight, diagonal). The falls were too scripted for my tastes (though having the horses know that the squires had nummies made things fairly easy with regards to catching the horse. The script was not that good (and again, we had some trouble hearing it in places). All in all, one joust was enough for me but I am spoiled by the Free Lancers.

Unfortunately, due to my blister (which was very tender and sore) and the rain, we didn't see too much the first day. We saw Corsairs, Queen Anne's Lace, London Broil, a joust, glassblowing, and the pub sing. We also saw part of the afternoon court dancing instruction but in an attempt to keep me off my feet, we did not participate and it was a little hard to hear the person. The pub sing was interesting. They have a set of tables near a pub but not in the pub. They are partially covered but not completely. The court wasn't there (except for the Royal Astrologer). A group of musicians and singers were standing on a bench and top of a picnic table at one end of the sing, others were along the sides or in the middle area. They apparently encourage dancing during Spanish Ladies. The songs were fun (Johnny Jump Up, Spanish Ladies, McIntire, Viva). The talking was fun and had a lot of teasing without being too crude. Anyone in the audience (apparently) could make a toast or call out for a song. Some of it seemed scripted, some not. The participants who were not 'on stage' seemed to really enjoy it. The music was quite nice. The cast members made limericks to tease each other with as well as toasts (and the Dominican refused to translate some stuff). There were maybe 50 people total at the Pub Sing.

London Broil is now 3 members (I remember 2 from when they were at Maryland). They have some very nice tricks and are very silly. The 10 club passing pattern was impressive. The fire trick on Rolla-Bollas was also impressive. They did some drumming while juggling but not as much as I remembered and no singing this time.

We saw part of a knife throwing show and while it was well done, it wasn't that amusing (to us) and it didn't really grab us (or at least didn't grab us enough to want to listen to the begging pitch).

One thing we saw was the "Lowland Games" (not to be confused with the games that Sally Sly came up with several years ago). The key game (ok, the only one we saw) was the distance slide competition. Someone drew a line in the mud and marked it (with those paper umbrellas from a drink). Then each contestant backed away from the line, ran forward, jumped onto their belly and slid in the mud. The goal was distance. The first guy had a bit of a handicap in that just as he was taking off the King walked by and he was doing everything he could to avoid muddying the King. They decided to give each person two attempts. (Marking each attempt with another paper umbrella). This seemed to be quite amusing to the few patrons I saw and the participants. Chris had been worried that we were in the splash zone and he did have his camera but we managed to not get muddy in spite of our front row seats (well, until someone went by and inadvertently whapped Chris with a muddy cloak). It may have been some "actorbation" but it did amuse me and some of the by-standers were explaining it to us so it wasn't complete actorbation.

Back at the hotel, we finally managed to get a hole in the blister (from Friday) so it could drain (followed by a shower to get it as clean as possible). The next morning we bought some antibiotic infused band-aids to keep it under control and it really hasn't caused any major problems since though it may when the chunk is ready to fall off.

Friday at Six Flags Over Texas
The goal of the vacation was Ren Fests and Six Flags Parks. The first park was Six Flags Over Texas (Official Page) which was the original park in the Six Flags chain (the flags refer to the six different flags which flew over Texas during its history including France, Spain, Mexico, Texas (republic), Texas (state), and the United States. While the Stars and Bars did fly over the state, it wasn't for very long so they aren't counted. The park was formed in 1961. The waterways in the park are mostly original and they are trying to keep the ecology as stable as they can (Java saw turtles sunning themselves) and I think I saw evidence of some beavers. The park is HUGE.

Ride geeking )

One thing that I kept commenting about throughout the day was the theming and the landscaping of the park. Each area had a definite theme and the rides fit the themes as well as possible. The names of the booths, some of the games, the name of the ride, the queue line, the costumes of the ride-ops, etc. would make a surprisingly solid whole story. Some (like Titan) don't really fit in well but the ride area fit its theme. There was a lot of waterways, plants, trees, bamboo, etc. everywhere. They also had some nice little nooks to sit and rest, out of the way of the traffic and just be peaceful. One little grotto area was surrounded on one side by trees, one side by the back of a building, one side by water and the forth was a small path that led back out to the main path. They also had (throughout the park) these GIANT fans that blew mist out over the pathways … usually not enough to get really wet (even if you stood in front of them) but kept it much cooler. There were misting stations where you could get misted harder and the occasional place to stand and get quite wet. Given how hot and dry I suspect it gets later in the season these are probably literally life-savers. The staff was very helpful (at one point while we were looking at the map trying to figure out what to aim for next, one stopped and asked if we needed help), there was a distinct lack of stapling us down, smiles, thank yous, etc. throughout the day. They also had signposts every now and again that would point in general directions to a group of rides/attractions.

My main complaints about the day are primarily little things. The fact that the little map they give you didn't quite seem to scale was bad, the fact that you couldn't be sure where some of the paths on said map was bad. The prices were horrendous (I can deal with $1 for a 12oz soda but $3 for a 20oz one is really pushing it). The fact that you had to go a LONG way around several sections was obnoxious though necessary for the environment but bridges would be nice. The lack of postcards (I did eventually find some but it took some serious sleuthing). Even if we had gone up the tower early, I doubt it would have helped much.

I am sorry that we didn't ride the train (we kept just missing it). I would have liked to re-ride a few more things, and I would have liked to ride the rapids ride (esp. after seeing it from above) but didn't want to put more stress on the body of soaking wet pants and shoes (which turns out to have been a GoodThing since I had a rather impressive blister at the end of the evening).

We took a long dinner break and went to Texas Roadhouse and had some fabulous steak. If you like good beef and find one (they apparently are in Indiana and Texas), it is worth a stop.

Thursday we got up unreasonably early (poor Java didn't get much sleep since he had to pack after we got home from the show and a long day at work). Made it to the airport a little later than I had planned but there was no line at the ticket counter and essentially no line at security (phew). My portable CD player and CDs caused some concern at the x-ray stations but other than that, we had no problems. Then off to breakfast.

The flight went well and we had a lot of fun looking for things out the window. The topography of the Appalachians is amazing from the air. It is truly beautiful up there and for most of the flight I had at least SOME idea of where we were. We did see the Six Flags from the air as we came in. Drrooool!

The flight got in early and we got our first car (it is an impala). Nice car. Off to visit our first park via lunch. Unfortunately for us, it is closed for a private event (and given our schedule it will now be skipped.) So we find the hotel, hit the room and head out to see Star Wars III (that review/commentary may come in a different entry). Played some games, saw the movie, got dinner and then time to sleep (what a novel concept).

The theatre we ended up at is very close to the hotel and has fabulous prices (the matinee price was $2, evenings are $4). Given those prices I was not expecting a nice theatre but I wanted to see the movie. However, the seats were very comfy, the bathrooms were clean, the projector clear, the screen fairly large and it's only flaw was not that big a one and was very low on the screen so it didn't mess up the movie.

Hobby store and magic
After we bought the tickets, we went to a hobby store in the same shopping center and bought a beginner's set of Magic the Gathering so we could try it out. Java was into the game when it first came out but I had given it a try and didn’t like it. A friend was letting me use her deck against another of her decks and I suspect that the decks weren't at all balanced. So we played the 'teach you the rules game' then headed out to the movies. It was fun and we will continue playing during the vacation.

I took Wednesday off of work so I could get some stuff done and have a nice relaxing day prior to leaving on vacation. Having been 'grounded' by Dr. G. for 2 weeks from riding meant that the timing was impeccable. (Apparently, the old rotator cuff has led to arthritis in the shoulder (great) and it was inflamed, so I am on 800mg of 'Vit I' to decrease the inflammation and strict rest for the arm for 2 days then gradually increase the stress on it and start doing exercises … *sigh*). Anyway, that meant I got home early on Tuesday (since I couldn't dance much, I didn't want to stay that late, just for the debriefing from the gig on Saturday).

So, I get up on Wednesday and start realizing how much needs to be done before we leave and how limited I am in what I can do safely. Mom and I GoBarn to visit Echo and see her get worked (my lesson was canceled due to the shoulder). I had arranged for Echo's work to occur after we got there. She was getting new shoes when we walked in (so I could pay him immediately). She is working with one of the newer people at the barn and this was the second day for the two of them to work. She is just slightly off to the right in the right-fore, however, she does work out of it some of the time. Peter is concerned but not worried. She is not exhibiting any Don'tWannaWork behavior which we can assume now is a pain response. Like her mother, she usually doesn't want to slow down and stop. She can do an amazingly slow trot (to avoid switching to walk) and even when she would walk, it would only be for a few strides before trying to trot again. Silly girl, she needs to learn to be more prompt in her transitions (part of it is that we all handle her slightly differently since we are all different so there are no absolute commands yet). She was very nicely behaved and looks wonderful (when Josh's mom saw her the previous week, she didn't recognize her due to her filling out with work).

We run some errands (including shipping my saddle off to be re-stuffed and partially re-stitched). And I get back home with about 2.5 hours to shower, change, finish laundry, pack, and eat lunch. I get most of it done in a timely fashion, and then it was off to see Cirque du Soleil – Varekai. The group was Mom, Pete, [livejournal.com profile] javasaurus, [livejournal.com profile] blueeowyn, [livejournal.com profile] terlan, C, and [livejournal.com profile] squire_liz. My friend J had to cancel at the last minute. We were in the center of the stage a few rows back from the mid-level aisle. The show seems to have changed a bit since I saw it in the fall. I don't remember seeing 3 guys being twirled in the segment where someone is upside down in a special chair and using his feet to flip another person. They also in the background added 2 more chairs with people doing contortionist type stuff. Fabulous show (even the second time). I highly recommend it.
