Either you're joking or you consider the north-east part of the Efteling as 'the world'.

Today we are @toverland in the Netherlands. This seriously is one of the more unique and fun parks in the world!

Image
Image
Image
Image
There are so many awesome open playgrounds for kids to have fun in!

Image
Image
Image
Image
The park also has a really cool collection of roller coasters!

Image
Image
Image
Image
The park @toverland is also extremely well landscaped & themed. Far better than 90% of US parks!

Image
Image
Image
Doing some filming on the Booster Bike @toverland! It might not be Tron but it's still awesome!

Image
Image
Image
Just some of the super cool theming on @toverland's Bobkart ride!

Image
Look! Europe has adult-sized rides that go fast with no seat belt at all! Shame we couldn't have this in America...

Image
Image
This "email my on ride photo to myself for €2" kiosk was super cool! Great idea!

Image
Image
Image
Image
They have a really good "reversing log flume" @toverland! We may or may not have recorded another "log flume" video!

Image
One example of how Europe parks are more trustworthy & guests are less sue-happy than in the USA. Never in America!



Image
This is what we call the "triangle of death" (or should it be cone of death?) Either way it's totally nuts!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Not only does @toverland have awesome playgrounds for kids, but they have them for adults, too!

Image
Image
Image
Image
The park started off mostly as an "indoor park" and then expanded outside!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Really had a great day @toverland! Nice to see this remains one of our favorite parks in Europe!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This park reminds of me of what Mt. Olympus could be...if it didn't suck.

I find your lack of more Bobkart photos / videos disturbing. Everyone needs more Bobkart in their lives.

Actually, thinking about it, I feel like a Bobkart would totally work in the US even though it's not that "appealing" to developers. Wiegand sells plenty of Alpine coasters, and people seem to control those just fine.

Excellent trip report so far, Robb! While I'm going to miss the group tour reports, and long wanted to go on one myself, I think I like the return to small-group TRs. Somehow I think it helps the focus and feel of the report. :)

Challenge me at Donkey Kong...I dare ya!

Well, personally, we weren't having fun on the "tours" because all the asshole people ruined it for us, so we are back to having fun again at the parks, and I hope that shows in the TR's!

In short, these are REAL trip reports from *US* actually enjoying the parks and having a good time, not just a bunch of "ok, everyone, smile for the camera because I have to put your stupid annoying asses in a report when I get back home..." pictures. ;)
