Last Call- Whoop-De-Doo Edition

Norway’s Atlantic Road permits travel between the nation’s coastal communities. Voted Norway’s Construction of the Century, it also appears to be an E-Ticket* ride.

* For most of its existence, Disneyland required individual tickets for each ride, and guests could buy them in booklets. The quality of the rides was reflected by a letter grade, and the most popular rides (Pirates of the Caribbean, Matterhorn, etc) required a ticket with the letter “E” on them.

    Damn, Graverobber, you're out to get me today. First you start the day by eliciting the graphic image one my childhood heroes (Mr. Hooper) with a boner, now you're reminding me how old I am by having to explain what an e-ticket is.

    Contemporary reports of the Porsche 930 describing it as an 'E-ticket ride' always left me scratching my head. Thanks for clearing it up.

    I wonder if the local geology dictated the design of that bridge, or if the engineers and architects just decided to give everybody a thrill just for the hell of it. Man, that's graceful. Must be a joy to swoop up and over it.

    I went to Disneyland at the beginning of the month. Got cheap tix on eBay and then used the Ridemax program to maximize our fun time. And a fun time it was. Kinda nerdy way to approach Disneyland but it works.

      I am obsessed with the Buzz Lightyear ride.
      It's like the dream every guy's ever had about Disneyland (no…not that one involving Belle): to go through one of their stupid "ride in a box and look at diaramas" rides and shoot the scenery!.
      It's a ride with a score. A ride you can win.

        If you like that ride, you'll love the Toy Story ride at California Adventure. Same concept as Buzz Lightyear but you shoot at a 3D screen instead of physical objects, and you get a score. It was so cool we decided to wait 30 mins in line to ride a second time.
        This ride, plus California Screamin' and Soaring Over California make it worth while to get the park hopper ticket and visit California Adventure too.

        The way I look at it, Belle would be a ride with a score too. And it would have win written all over it.

    I've been to Norway. Beautiful country and I want to go back. My wife's best friend is Norwegian, so all we really have to pay for is a plane ticket there. Which is good since that country is freakin' expensive.
    I learned a few things while I was there, including their insane approach to road construction. We took a ride up a mountain near Drammen and half the drive was in the huge tunnel with other tunnels feeding into it. It was crazy. I also know that they spent most of the last century in fear of a Soviet invasion. Which leads me to my point — this road is very Norwegian. Insane enough to confuse the invading commie hordes.

      On of my dad's (god, muthalovin talking about his fucking folks again) was a ship captain from Norway. He always had great things to say about Norway. And seeing this, it makes me want to take a holiday and visit. The tunnel tunnel you speak of sounds about as awesome as this bridge.

      Awesome place, but damn near bankrupted me the last time I was there. $8 for a freaking beer? And this was at cheaper places. How the hell am I supposed to pull a Norwegian chick if I can't even buy her a simple beer? And she thought I was cute too, but felt I was a cheap skate or something…
