This morning our coaster riding adventure starts in Belgium @bobbejaanland!

Image
Love that @bobbejaanland has a great mix of rides for families and thrill seekers!

Image
We are working with @Giroptic to bring you some cool 360 degree roller coaster POVs!

Image
Got to try the new VR version of Revolution @bobbejaanland! It's awesome! New theme works really well!

Image
Kristen loved the VR version of Revolution! @bobbejaanland

Image
It's official! We have found "Bench: The Ride" aka The El Paso Special

Image
Image
Image
Image
The indoor kids area @bobbejaanland is super nice! Wish more parks in America had stuff like this.

Image
Looks like there might be a #ChanceOfReign here @bobbejaanland today! ;)

Image
Image
Image
Image
European parks just have a different look and vibe to parks in America.



Image
They have one of those super kick A$$ giant Frisbee's here @bobbejaanland! Runs a great program!

Image
Image
Image
Image
We shot plenty of POV video today @Bobbejaanland! Lots of new videos coming soon!

Image
There goes @ElissaAlvey & Kristen on the pedal cars

Image
I'm pretty sure Revolution may have the longest rain in roller coaster history!

Image
Taking a ride on @bobbejaanland Wild Mouse, Speedy Bob, and with light brakes it IS speedy!!!

Image
Some celebratory beer on the way back from @bobbejaanland! Had a great day at the park!

If you think that coming on OUR PAGE and challenging my rant with uneducated factoids trying to "prove us wrong" about the international tour business we ran for over ten years is going to be met with a positive response from me, that's where you are VERY wrong.

Your posts have been deleted and your accounts have been banned and you are just another reminder of why we stopped doing tours and why I posted the rant in the first place.

Thank you for helping us justify our decisions.


That's very unfortunate. I always wanted to go on one and maybe some day far off into the far flung future I will. But if you weren't happy doing them and dealing with the fallout I respect the decision not to do them.

Been enjoying the Live tweeting so far. If anything, it's nice to experience these trips from afar. :)

I'm rather intrigued by the VR version of Revolution, as that coaster is the perfect candidate for that treatment thanks to its long spiral lift and layout.

Rude Moronic People are Everywhere unfortunately, but even when I Still Smoked I respected people enough to ONLY SMOKE in Designated Areas. As I Have said on your posts on Facebook Several Times Robb...You Can't Fix Stupid! However, the Fact that I Know you Will soon be Riding Wildfire Makes Me have Less Sympathy for you than I Normally Would...Lucky Stiff...Just Sayin.

I also got to try the VR in Mount Mara. Although I had 2 major complaints:
1. They open the ride without VR and reopen the ride at 1 o clock with. Which is okay if they still played the video at the lift, they're now better off to go full VR.
2. I'm not a fan to see ride ops collect the VR glasses and then distribute these to the next riders without any cleaning.
Other the that the VR is great. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one to enjoy it. looking forward to the next Trip Report.

Trip report is looking amazing so far, Robb. Super jealous; would love to do a Europe trip with my family, but it doesn't look like it's in the cards any time soon. Hope you guys and gals are enjoying yourself to the fullest and tuning out all the negativity. Looking forward to more updates!

Is Dreamcatcher any good? It always looks like a pretty decent coaster with it's setting and layout but ya never hear much about it positive or negative. Also, I've always wondered why none of North American suspended coasters have ever converted to the floorless suspended trains, I know many of those rides have been taken out of service but it seems like the ones left aren't going anywhere for a while.
