  1. Expedition GeForce varies wildly depending on the weather - the most amazing rides are generally delivered during the summer on a hot, sunny, wind-less day... It is often reported not to be running so well at the start of the season. If you're ever nearby when it's 21 degrees C plus, don't let your first experience put you off from a re-visit!

  2. All of those parks can be reached via public transport, yet if you can drive then you may find that easier logistically - it would certainly give you more flexibility on hotels and where to store luggage etc. That said, here are the public transport links:

     

    Heide Park : bus from Hamburg ZOB

    Phantasialand : bus from Brühl station

    Holiday Park : bus from Haßloch (Pfalz) station

    Europa Park : bus from Ringsheim station

     

    All of the parks can be entered as destinations on the Deutsche Bahn website.

     

    Also don't forget Hansa Park : bus from Hamburg ZOB

     

    These parks are in a straight line north-south pretty much, so ideally you'd start at one end and travel to the other to avoid doubling back on yourself, whether by car or train.

     

    Plus by car you could even stop off at some smaller parks on the way - e.g. Go via Metz and hit Wallygator for a couple of hours, or hit Movie Park Germany on the way to/from Hamburg. If you time it right you could even hit Olympia Looping / Alpina Bahn / Teststrecke / Höllenblitz at a fair...

  3. You'll be able to reach Thorpe Park easily from London (as well as Chessington if you wanted) - there's an easy train / shuttle bus combo from London Waterloo (or Clapham Junction) to Staines and then on to the park for Thorpe Park, and you can similarly travel from London Waterloo (or Clapham Junction) to Chessington South which is a short walk away from Chessington.

     

    For Alton Towers, take a look at the details here (and possibly also dotted around in other places on the forum) : TPR Thread
