The motorcoach transportation finally arrives in Orlando, Fl on Dec 19, 2001 at 8:52 a.m. Many students then buy discount tickets for a price of $38 to the Tangerine Jam which included free admissions to Universal Studios, Universal’s Island of Adventures, City Walk, and a Pep rally.
Around 11:39 a.m students lined up to receive their wristbands for the Tangerine Jam and left the Ramada Inn Resort.

Couple of PPC members enjoyed the ‘Spiderman’ ride and felt the ‘Hulk’, a roller coaster was a total surprise. Brother and sister, Jeremiah Miller & Jenny Lin Miller also enjoyed the ride.

While people were enjoying the rides and sight seeing, many decided to go to Sinbad’s adventure show to see Sinbad, Amoura, and Shish Kabob perform death defying feats. Later, they posed for audiences to take pictures and sign autographs.
