What should be Theme Park Insider's t-shirt slogan?

I need a catch-phrase for our shirts. Whoever submits the winner gets a free shirt, too!

From Robert Niles

Okay, I'm putting together the design for the batch of Theme Park Insider t-shirts I'll be having printed up soon. (Team TPI members get the first run, free.)

But I've decided I really need some catch-phrase or slogan to go along with the logo and site name. I'm blanking, though.

What would be a great one-liner that really sums up the theme park experience for theme park insiders? I suspect that it should be a touch snarky, but ultimately enthusiastic (kinda like, well, all of us around here).

I'm taking suggestions in the responses. Winner will get one of the shirts, too. Thanks!

Jeff yours are quite hilarious!

Oh and Rob you should make some shirts that everyone can buy, kind of like the ones that say "You know you are a blank if" or "Best Ways to Enjoy a Theme Park" and list that list you posted a couple weeks ago about how NOT to have fun. I would pay money for one of those and wear it proudly with a TPI logo on it!

You know you are a TPI if:
You are at Rope Drop
You can ride every ride in the park before lunch
You know what "fill in the blank here" is (Kind of like a secret path or area in a park. Kind of like The Alice in Wonderland BLVD between Space Mountain and the old ToonTown

You know you are a TPI if:
- You have driven over 1000 miles for 3 roller coasters and a funnel cake.
- You know what a B&M, Vekoma and Intamin are.
- You haven't been to your local amusement park for years but have been to 10 out of state amusement parks.
- You know how long it takes to run from the lighthouse to the Dragon Challenge roller coaster
- You will only leave the park after it has been closed for more than 45 minutes
- You have ever taken a picture of rust or peeling paint
- You know who Dick Kinzel, Joel Manby, Pat Koch, and Angus Wynne are.

FWIW, I also loved "happiest place online," but that has a bit of a complicated trademark background, so I left it out of the running. (Disney registered the mark, then abandoned it, and now it's listed as dead. But Disney's used it in commerce in the past.)
