I'm voting real VIP.

Great report, Grona Lund is a park that I really want to get to, but have no idea when I'll be able to get to it.

Oh, and that video of the Haunted House was awesome. :lol:

Wildfire Back Seat POV! Watch this!!!


Image
Look where we are at now!

Image
Photos do not do this ride justice. #Wildfire @Kolmarden

Image
Image
Image
Image
We have been riding #Wildfire over and over this morning @Kolmarden. Holy crap this ride is just INSANE CRAZY!!!

Image
Another shot of the amazing #Wildfire @Kolmarden!



Image
Image
Image
Image
Kolmarden is more than just Wildfire! They have some amazing behind the scenes animal encounters!

Image
Image
Image
Image
It was cool being able to get so close to the Tigers @Kolmarden!

Image
Awesome sign @Kolmarden Zoo! Very good advice, too!

Image
Image
Image
Image
And just like with the Tigers, @Kolmarden has a cool behind the scenes tour for the lions, too!

Image
Image
Image
Image
The Safari ride @Kolmarden was great! 25 min gondola ride over the Savannah! And they are gonna let us feed animals!

Image
Image
Image
Image
The girls are dropping food down to the giraffes!

Image
Image
Image
Kristen is going throw some meat down to the lions... Although they already are eating an entire horse!

Image
Want some more awesome pics of #Wildfire @kolmarden? Here ya go!

Image
This ape is all "anyone got some children they want to throw my way?"

Image
Image
We got to see some Marmosets @Kolmarden which is a really really small monkey!

Image
Image
Image
Image
The gondola safari ride is a fantastic way to see all the animals!

Image
How's this for an awesome photo of #Wildfire?

Image
When Peter isn't making rides for Grona Lund or Kolmarden, apparently he sells boots! :)

Image
Image
Image
Time to get the kiddie coaster credit in the Bamses World area!

Image
Image
There is also a dolphin themed Vekoma roller skater in the marine area. Plenty for kids to do @Kolmarden!

Image
Image
Image
Image
A few shots from the Wildfire station. Great effort by @Kolmarden and the RMC trains are great! (Photos by Andy Hatzos)

Image
Image
Image
Image
Checking out some other animal exhibits @Kolmarden Zoo.

Image
Image
Image
Yay! They have a "dolphins doing tricks" show @Kolmarden!

Image
Image
Image
Image
For lunch, the owners of @Kolmarden took us to a hidden "lodge" within #Wildfire's structure! Awesome!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Inside the lodge @Kolmarden are some photos of the Wildfire team, great views of the coaster, and of course beer!

Image
I was give a special #Wildfire "axe" that they only made for the team and those who helped with the ride! Thank you!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Hanno took some awesome pics of #Wildfire!

Image
Image
We ended up taking 26 rides on Wildfire during our morning and evening ride sessions!

Image
Hanno captures the "haritime" of Wildfire!

Image
Another awesome Hanno photo of #Wildfire!

Image
Would you believe this shot was taken at the start of our "evening" ERT? lol

Image
Image
Image
Image
We did a total of 26 laps on #Wildfire today @Kolmarden! Each was just as good as the first!

Image
Hanno captures some more "hairtime" on #Wildfire @Kolmarden!

Image
Even Kristen ranked #WildFire @kolmardren as one of her favorite coasters in the world! She's been on hundreds!

Kolmarden put together an amazing video sharing with you all my "review" of Wildfire!

I know this whole Europe trip has probably made you super tired of people asking you to compare coasters but I've got to ask after you said one of the best in your review video... is this now your favorite RMC or is it still to close to call compared to Outlaw Run, Medusa etc?

I honestly don't want to compare them. I mean it's up there... REALLY FAR UP THERE... but really I like all the RMC's almost the same. My favorites of the company are: Wildfire, Outlaw Run, Medusa, Wicked Cyclone, Texas Giant, probably not in that order, and I'm not sure I could rank them if you asked me to! ;)

Love those clear close-ups of the 'holy crap!' expressions on riders faces... Why I love rollercoasters!

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Even tho I am in the UK, I still haven't done most of the parks in Europe. Must admit we do find it quite hard with a 3 year old in tow.
Troverland is one I certainly want to do. We are off to Europa this year for the first time in 8 years.

Get photos from your trip. Hope you really enjoyed it :)

This looks like such a beautiful park...and the close-up and trams are both such unique concepts for viewing animals - how cool is that?

And Wildfire just looks freaking amazing...wow.

I have got to get back to Germany and to Scandinavia soon!
