Well, personally, we weren't having fun on the "tours" because all the a$$hole 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. ;)


Amen to that! Like others have said, I was saving up $ to one day go on one of these tours but I completely understand why they had to be stopped. Amusement Parks are about having fun, not bitching about every little thing. By doing that you're totally missing the point of an amusement park and should definitely find a different hobby.
I hope at some point I can talk you into letting me come on one of the tours :lmao: but seriously... just go out and have fun riding rides and screwing around.

If you're not enjoying what you're doing, you're doing it wrong. Great to see/hear that you guys are back to just going to parks and having fun!

Toverland really was a pleasant surprise and I wish we could have parks like that in America. I stopped there thinking it would be a smash and grab for the creds, but we ended up spending hours there with a 2 year old bouncing off everything. :lmao:

It's such a fun place to visit :)
Should be going there more often as it's just a good hour drive for me.

Or even just watching other crazy people injuring themselves. ;) Toverland is a lot of fun.

I can't believe how cool Toverland is! Definitely have to get over there some day and check it out. I love ropes courses and jungle gym stuff, anything that would never be allowed in the US, Bobkarts and a backwards log flume is the cherry on top. Having a good group of people always makes things more fun too. Thanks for posting!

Toverland really is the park of surprises, I wasn't expecting much from my first visit back i 2013 but when I came there I had more fun then some bigger parks I visited.

And Robb I totaly understand you, while yes I like to meet you some day, if that required you to be around that kind of people I rather never meet you at all.
Have fun the rest of the trip.

The Catacombs in Paris were a huge surprise to us when we went a few years ago. It is probably as close to Skyrim as you'll get in real life. Very eerie and weirdly split into two sections - I think the first section was unfilled, and one of the builders years back even carved a model of the port town he called home all those years ago. The second, as you've seen from the photos, is where the bones were (and no, we most certainly didn't touch any).

Of course, for those interested, it is a LONG walk down - and, of course, back up again!

If you're in Paris it's definitely something to do, and we found it pretty easy to get to (hint - if you're staying at Disneyland Paris, you can pick up an RER/Metro ticket that gives you pretty good access to the trains. Can't recall if the train from Disneyland Paris goes to Paris, but you could go to Serris / Val d'Europe and go from there. Another hint - if you're flying into CDG, the CDG airport actually has a train station and you can catch a TGV that goes straight to Disneyland Paris in roughly 10 minutes)

Efteling is another beautifully landscaped and well-themed park which we don't have in the USA.

First the show then an amazing dinner! Highly recommend Raveleijn!
