  1. Hey! So now that I'm back in Colombia, I finally got to go to the park and meet face to face with Yippe. Yippe is great for family fun, and it really takes advantage of the terrain (it reminded me of Dollywood's FireChaser). It launches out of the station (a first in Colombias by the way) and then does a little turn before climbing up the lift hill. It has a good pace and heard a lot of parents and kids talking about "how fast" it is for a family coaster, which is good. It surprise me that it have about four interactive fountains - one right out of the station, second one just a regular fountain that shoots as you pass by, the third one is really cool since is kind of a "water tunnel" just little fountains that create an arch around the track and the train and the last one is a splash down little the one in Shambbala. Overall, the park its pretty well keep, beautiful as always, nice staff and rides looking shinny. I'm glad to see that the management does a great job with it and they keep putting more rides. Hope you enjoy this mini photo trip report. So this is the view from the upper part of the park This is the Coffee museum and of course the Colombian flagship Coffee store Juan Valdez This is the map of the park in case you're wondering how is the layout of the park. (Ignore my breakfast) There is a new skylift right by the entrance to get people to the lower part of the park.This new one seems faster than the other 2. So we are down at the main plaza, and they have this jeeps on display, basically YIPPE is theme to who these jeeps were used to transport coffee from the countryside to the cities. So finally I got a glimpse of Yippe and Is right there next to amazing Krater. Number Boats got a little expansion and the lagoon looks bluer and have more boats now. So this is the view you get for Yippe. Selfie next to Yippe Yippe propelling out of the station. The fountain starts splashing just as they conquer the hill Krater looking shinny and awesome as always One last look at Yippe and you can see the interactive splash down at the end Broca aka Montaña Rusa aka Zambezi Zinger looking good too. Photographers around the park are place to get these cool shots of you and your family. Of course you have to paid for them.
  2. New Family Coaster coming to the park! I just stumbled across their post in Facebook and announcing the new rollercoaster "Yippe", inspired by the old jeeps that are sometimes still use to transport the bulks of coffee from town to town and growths. the coaster will be opening on march 23rd.
  3. It happened during the weekend, the guy who felt doesn't have both legs, so he shouldn't have been allowed to ride. He is still in the hospital. His wife was on national news in Colombia, she said she ask the operators if it was safe for him to ride in his condition. She also caught the accident in video, as did other visitor.

  5. Boomerang at Knott's. It's the only coaster that has make me feel really sick ( very dizzy). So I won't be trying any vekoma's boomerang anymore. Deja Vu didn't do that at all though, I though it was a blast.
  6. Hey! Finally I went to the park and rode Krater!. I was actually invited by the park to go and try Krater on the opening day, but sadly I got sick and couldn't make it. So I waited after the holiday because I heard the park has been packed most of december and january, with long hours waits, they were even opening at 7:00AM due to the crowds, and warning people on facebook not to get too late to the park, or they might find the doors closed due to the park reahcing full capacity. So I went last thursday since most schools and some universities are already back from the holidays break, and the park wasn't crowed at all, most rides were a walk.on or very little wait time. Krater was my first Euro-fighter, and I was thrilled, the ride it's short but it packs a punch. So if's anyone it's interested in visiting the park and need help or something, feel free to contact me, I will be more than happy to help. Here are some photos: It was raining when I got to the park, so I waited a few minutes and the rain stopped. Most of the day was chilly, so I didn't get in any of the water rides So sexy Operators at the station were encouraging riders to raise their hands. Some riders chose to hold on to the back of the headrest rather than the lap bar which I found kind of funny. You exited the ride walking right beneath the the first drop and the lift hill Lift hill porn. By the beginning of the day the ride was a walk-on so I rode several times in a row. They were running one train, I notiec Krater has 3 trains. I'm guessing later in the day they ran a second train. Cool sign right?. Definitly the coolest in the park. There it is!! You're definitly will get wet on this one. Went to do a quik checkout of this area of the park. Mostly kids and family rides. Here's the park map. Krater should be next to river rapids, it doesn't appear here, but it does on the maps they hand you with your tickets at the entrance. Of course I didn't forget about Broca. Since it was a bit of a cold day, Broca was running a little slower. That "rocky" path next to this sexy curve is the tunnel at the end of the coaster. It's VERY loud. Here I Am Train station. Have I mention this it's the slowest train ever? Some kids rides. This area of the park was empty. Barco del Café which mens "Ship Of Coffee" View from the upper part of the park. Bye!
  7. Krater has been testing, but the park hasn't announced the exact opening date yet, although they have confirm that it will open in december. They release a "trailer" on their facebook page:
  8. False. I''ve never tasted them. The person below has done something embarrasing while drunk.
  9. Both in 2008: X2- Six Flags Magic Mountain Pony Express - Knott's Berry Farm
  10. Krater seems pretty much done, although the park has yet to announce an openning date. October 23: October 29:
  11. Visited the park yesterday. We got there by 9:00am because we knew the park was gonna be packed since today it's a holiday lots of people chose to travel. It was a sunny warm day, by the middle of the day the park was crowded, fortunately we were done with the rides with wanted by them. The park has a bunch of kiddie rides, I realsie now I didn't take many pictures of those, since I'm the younger of the group and I'm 22 with didn't stopped by those, but next time I make sure I will get them for you. Krater terrain preparation seems pretty much done, track its on site, but no sight of vertical construction yet. There isn't a specific opening date yet, it's only being advertised as "coming soon", on the park map, but it's aiming for a december opening date. I haven't follow any eurofighter construction so I'm not sure if they have enough time to get it ready by december. Acording to the park's facebook, Krater features a 95° degree drop, has an 80Km/h speed aprox., a loop, a "cobra corkscrew", and a 360° corkscrew, this are roguh translation from the spanish name of the inversions, which aren't very clear, acording to rcdb it's the same model as "Iron Shark". You can get many on-ride photos as there are many photographers spreading around the park, they take pictures of you and then give a number for you to check out your group photos. So there aren't actually on-ride cameras but you get great on-ride photos, they have them for Broca, River Rapids, Log Flumme and Bumper Boats. Here we are Chairlift station Chairlift takes you to the "Bolivar Square", then from there you can walk to the four areas where the rides are spread. We see you Krater construction site. Wee see you Broca, althoguh that's its oficial name, now it is listed as "rollercoaster" on the park map, and everyone refers to it to as "rollercoaster". I hope they change the name back once Krater opens. Broca was running two trains since the vry beginning of the day. We were soaked after riding the log flumme. Go-karts were running only half-circuit to avoid long lines, it gets packed even thoguh you can only ride then once. Then we headed for "Cumbre". Cumbre and River Rapids are in front of each other separated by a bridge. they're both newest rides on the park, and Krater will be next to River Rapids River Rapids were next. They were a great addition to the park, not only because they're first ot its kind in Colombia, but because the park was in desperate need of a high capacity family ride. Krater's sexy red track! Another shot at Krater's construction site. So 3 of the 4 areas were the rides are are connected also by the slowest train I've ever seen. And this is once of the tran's stations, each of then resembles an actual train station of the region. We're heading back to Bolivar's Square now. Here's another look at Broca, which by this part of the day had 1 hour wait. Log flumme was pretty busy too, I'm glad we got here early. This is Bolivar's square, there's the chairlift station, a foodcourt, a chapel and this train station. This it's the park main show called "Show del Café" (Coffee's show), it's all about coffee and dancers. I haven't seen it yet. This its what the upper side of the park looks like. That's the Museum of Coffee and Juan Valdez it's right there too. This it's the view from Juan Valdez. Hoe y'all enjoyed the Photo trip report, let me know if you have any questions about the park.
