  1. I'm 100% convinced most people would agree that rides on which you get eaten by any sort of animal are the very best kind. But where in the world can you find such rides?


    Here are a few to start off with:


    Hansa Park, Germany - Nessie Superrollercoaster


    Everything's going well, the ride feels like it's going to carry on, and then...

    Heide Park, Germany - Krake


    You get eaten by Paul the Octopus at the bottom of the first drop!

    German Fairs, Germany - Wilde Maus (Göbel)


    Surely the very best Wild Mouse ride out there (even better than WIlde Maus XXL!). A mixture of thrill and great fun!

    Please help by adding more - let's make this the reference point for rides on which you get eaten by an animal. Thanks!

  2. TP - you've clearly not been following our GeForce Weekend trip reports - we've been meticulous in detailing the changes to the park year on year! Ha ha Yes - Holiday Park has been reworked to the max in recent times!


    I confirm that the padding on GeForce's lapbars is so much firmer than on other Intamins I've ridden - the year where the 1st trim was taken away and the negative Gs were through the roof left us with pain in our upper thighs for a long time afterwards, we got so much airtime! Not a complaint, Holiday Park / Plopsa Germany / TüV - please take the trim away again!! It's not just due to height - I'm nowhere near as tall as Hans!

    Intamin : The Intamin Pre-fab Wooden Coasters such as Balder, El Toro, T Express are undoubtedly some of the best in the world, yet there haven't been any new such coasters since 2008, possibly as a result of the high price of the pre-fabrication process, and the advent of other, competitively priced, modern wooden coaster products - is there anything they can do to bring down the production costs sufficiently to make them competitive enough for parks to build more?

  4. ^ Whilst the one at Hansa was a lot of fun when we rode it, we really spun out of control on the one at Parc Asterix! With several 'is the raft going to stay in the slide' moments!


    Here is my Europa Park summary:


    We had a really good day at Europa Park - it's difficult not to!


    Blue Fire - a great, great ride!

    Silver Star - a great ride! (shame about the trims)

    Wodan - a great family ride! (when the queue is open)

  5. We all had a great time at Parc Asterix.  Goede Gezelligheid!!


    Oz Iris is easily as good as Nemesis and Katun!  I absolutely loved it - especially right at the very back.  A great first drop, some forceful bits, some nice floaty bits, and fantastic theming all combine to make a brilliant ride!  I would strongly encourage you all to go and ride it!


    Tonnerre de Zeus wasn't overly rough, although it kind-of fizzled out as the ride went on.  Disappointing!  It certainly didn't hit the break-run with enough speed to shake it violently, as it has done in previous years.


    L'Oxygénarium has to the best Spinning Rapids ride I've ever been on - ultra spinny, ultra fast, ultra intense!  It was a great ride to end a brilliant day!


    Oh, and of course Goudurix was very re-rideable*
