  1. Time for a new thread.

    It's been a while since I posted, but found some time again, so here we go and finish last year's Scandi TR's.

     

     

     

    Feel free to visit my previous TR thread.

    Hansa Park, the only park of the Scandi trip I visited before. Very nice welcome with some nice souvenirs

    Still the coolest Eurofighter I've ever ridden.

    We had an hour or so of ERT on this coaster :-)

    IMG_9357.thumb.JPG.777203b17c54718843bfc7f0469cfccd.JPG

    It's spinning too fast so I've never been on the ride, but still it's my ride picture ever because of personal reasons.

    Always great fun. It must look quite different now with the new coaster in the back.

    From Hansapark, we drove into Denmark again to our hotel in Aarhus. Next morning we visited Legoland

    IMG_9387.thumb.JPG.26b312c6cb19d660884e69d7bb35c8cc.JPG

    I'm way too old for Lego but still like Lego a lot. Working in the shipping business, I liked this Maersk Lego vessel a lot. Over 200 euro and considering I was going home after the trip by plane, I couldn't buy this one. The great news is that I'm a client of Maersk and my contact at Maersk ordered this Lego Maersk vessel for me for free now :-)

    IMG_9392.thumb.JPG.102884cc32899537b989dfd3d37f0506.JPG

    I loved Legoland Billund. The aquarium is really nice.

    I just love the BBQ places in the Scandinavian parks; People bringing their own meat to the park and put it on the bbq. I love Scandinavian habits.

    In the evening, R&E arranged that Tivoli Friheden, normally closed that day, would open for out group.

    Because of the 2 ponchos R&E packed for all participants, the weather during the whole trip was really the best we could wish for.

    Hidden in the rocks, an amazing darkride. Not at Spiderman level, but still it 'rocked'.

  2. Kidzania looks incredible.

    I have a trip to London planned end of August with my 12 year old daughter and just had a look with her at the Kidzania website.

    And although we had already a lot of things planned to do in London, we just adjusted our schedule and will visit Kidzania the day of our arrival in London

    Thank you so much for finding and sharing Kidzania.

  3. Scandinavia has always been on my to do list so I decided to join the TPR Scandinavia trip last June. It promised to be an amazing trip but it exceeded all my expectations by far. From the first to the last day, everything, every smallest detail was so well organized by our amazing tour guides. The parks were all really good and welcomed us like VIPs. There were tons of ERT at every park. I met a lot of old friends from previous trips and made a lot of new ones. It's really awesome to have friends all over the world because of TPR. The weather, I still can't believe how perfect the weather during the whole trip was. And I'm still sure this was because R&E packed 2 poncho's for every participant. I loved all the bonus parks. How awesome can it get when during a long drive, the lunchstop is at a bonuspark ? And all the food that was included !!! I was warned that Scandinavia is expensive. I budgeted quite some money for lunches and drinks but ended up not even spending half of my budget because most of the days breakfast, lunch AND dinner was included. Everything on this trip was amazing. I'm really glad I was able to explore Scandinavia with TPR.

    On to the pics

    IMG_9265.thumb.JPG.bff9e2ab663e88cfed9c5891f8edcc00.JPG

    As from the first picture, I realize my memory is not as good as Thad's memory (if you haven't read his TR, just go and read it). I don't remember why I booked my flight arriving at noon and missing out on the bonuspark. So in stead of being at the bonuspark, Ken and me used the spare time we had in the afternoon to explore Copenhagen by bike. I'm really glad we did. I was nice to bike around the city and visit some of the landmarks in the city. Oh yeah, I also got 'robbed'. When I left my bike unattended for a few minutes, my bottles of water (1 full, 1 half empty) got stolen. Oh well, I'm glad I helped out a thirsty Danish person.

    IMG_9267.thumb.JPG.fa3576d2cfd8ed2274959a099406dc65.JPG

    I was standing in the direction they were going, so I moved out of their way after taking this picture. I still wonder what would have happened if I hadn't moved.

    IMG_9268.thumb.JPG.aa45ae061bba38899eeb4af454811ea4.JPG

    I had seen pictures of this street before but didn't realize it was in Copenhagen so it was a nice surprise.

    First official day : Bakken. I didn't really know much about the parks we were going to visit, let alone about the coasters in the parks. It was fun to be surprised day after day by the parks and hear all the info about the parks and coasters from Robb on the busride to the park.

    IMG_9272.thumb.JPG.d5f4154c9d1449587ecbdd73ec1a45fa.JPG

    Bakken welcome was awesome. The rideops gave us a lot of interesting info and facts about their wooden coaster.

    IMG_9273.thumb.JPG.1d8e648673d8fd22e5ed0c29cf19c3ea.JPG

    Not being prepared at all, the Tornado lifthill gave me one of the biggest WTF moments of my life

    IMG_9275.thumb.JPG.142f031893db13f11bd3873cb31adf71.JPG

    Bakken is located in a park. It was great to see the locals coming to the park with their families to relax and enjoy the sun and the park.

    In the evening we spent a great evening at the extreme rope course hall. Since a have a weak back, I joined as a spectator only. I was a great evening though seeing the group on the ropes. In the same hall, the Eurovison contest took place a few weeks earlier. To be honest, I didn't even know it was held in Copenhagen but it was a nice detail being at the place it was held. It was too dark inside so I don't have any pictures of the course itself.

    P1120612.thumb.JPG.639e9e7b80fe2377f4ee88beb274b557.JPG

    Oh yeah, it was also the spot where the metal fest Copenhell took place a few days before we were there

    Tivoli Gardens. Again a hartly welcome by the parkmanagement

    IMG_9281.thumb.JPG.beb088a986c3908d5e6294034639acec.JPG

    This was one of the coaster I knew we were going to ride. I knew it was a short ride, and it was short. I heard the lady who welcomed us saying that we didn't want to ride Daemonen for a long time and that we would quickly move to their better coaster. Being a B&M fan, it was weird to hear her say that, but she was right. Not that Daemonen is a bad ride, not at all but ....

    IMG_9282.thumb.JPG.39a7728f06407c82ebfc7157f4e845eb.JPG

    this coaster was so much better.

    IMG_9283.thumb.JPG.63479004608a6648efd855d4a1de3351.JPG

    We got a backstage tour through the complete structure and ended up at the roof.

    IMG_9284.thumb.JPG.b1cb0d8bec1e9439cc9314106f828565.JPG

    This rideop was so great. The info he gave us was very interesting and entertaining

    IMG_9285.thumb.JPG.1c0ad48575583551a5a729cfb38275bd.JPG

    The moment he told us that we would go down from the roof by coaster train, I had goosebumps everywhere.

    Bye bye Bon Bon Land

  4. Great update Bill.

    I very much enjoyed Legoland.

    I wasn't feeling too well that day either, but I had a terrific day at the park. I spent most of the day on my own (that's just me, I like to be on my own once in a while when I'm on trips with a group) but I really enjoyed the park. The weather was just perfect and I realized I should be taking my kids to one of the Legolands next year.

    Keep up the good work Bill

  5. Love this TR.

    I'm really into these VIP experiences. I remember when we were going to visit CP, I was considering this too, but it was quite expensive and eventually we didn't do it, also because we were visiting on weekdays in May and didn't expect a packed park.

    How much does it cost nowadays ?

    Looking forward to the rest of your TR

    Also congrats to reaching your goal.

  6. Hi, wise choice not going to Walibi Belgium:-). While I haven't been to Bellewaerde since several years, not that much has changed over there lately, and I would highly recommend going to the nearby Plopsaland in stead. Especially with kids of that age. It's really a very nice park with great theming and a lot of attractions. The attractions are themed to the tv shows the parkowners broadcast and you'll not know any of the characters or shows, but even without knowing them, I would definitely rank the park higher than Bellewaerde.

    For side visits, I can only think of visiting Bruges or Antwerp. The old city centers are quite famous and enjoyable if you're into that.

  7. Wow, this is challenging. My favorite songs Spotify list contains over 160 songs

     

    I tried to make my top 10, in random order though :

    Schism - Tool : the best concert I have ever seen, shortly after the release of Lateralus

    Plug in baby - Muse : amazing live band with so many great songs

    Touching me - Finnebassen : my favorite EDM producer

    Sheena is a punkrocker - The Ramones : my favorite band of all time. I could have filled my top 10 with Ramones songs

    Landslide - Fleetwood Mac : I love Stevie Nicks

    Money don't matter 2 night - Prince : inspiring artist

    2 bands which HAVE to make my top list :

    You're my best friend - Queen : like many others, I think their Live Aid concert was the best concert I've ever seen. But not only that. They have so many great songs. I've chosen You're my best friend because of the special meaning to me

  10. Yesterday, Plopsaland De Panne was in fact closed, but not really. The park was rented by Telenet, from which I managed to get a hold of 4 tickets. The park was going to be packed because Telenet handed out some 13000 tickets, so we arrived well before opening time to at least do some rides without waiting too long.

    P1120435.thumb.JPG.d5966bd55b3d62bdf5740933399fd526.JPG

    I hadn't been to Plopsaland since Mayaland opened, so I was anxious to discover this new area. Also note the sky and clouds and sky in this pictures. That's the hall in which Mayaland is. On days like yesterday, you hardly notice this.
