  1. ok, will take the Dorney waterpark in our planning. Driving in a big circle would be a good idea but we would need some additional parks in our schedule. We would prefer a direct flight out of Brussels or Amsterdam so Nyc would be the most suitable airport to enter the Usa. The order we would do the parks would be Sfga, Dorney (+ waterpark), Hershey, Paramount, Cp, Geauga. Btwn Hershey and Paramount there is approx 450 miles. Are there parks on the way which are worth while so that we can do this distance in 2 times ? After Geauga, which parks are on the way back to Nyc ? We would start our tour btwn 7 and 11 June 2006 for about 10 days. How are the crowds in the parks at that time ? Can we expect short rows during weekdays and medium rows during the weekend ? Or will the parks already be packed ?
  2. we plan to visit next June during a 10 day trip Sfga, hershey, dorney, Paramount, geauga and cp. In our opinion, best is to fly in via Jfk, rent a car and then move up to Ohio and fly back from Cleveland. Other suggestions are welcome. Above 6 parks are on our must do list. Are there any other parks worth to visit ? What about the waterparks some of the 6 parks have. Which ones are the best ? Any suggestions on hotels or motels we should look for ?
  3. too bad i won't be able to HHN either this year. In stead i will spend halloween in port aventura in spain and i hope they'll still do the universal halloween stuff, now that they are no longer under the wings of universal. Last year i was at the HHN on 31 Oct in Orlando and this was definately the best themepark event i have ever been to.

  5. my favorite ride is still Expedition G-force in Holiday park : amazing first drop, my favorite coastertrains and restraints, great airtime, ...
  6. nice TR. Looking forward to the others. For me, it was very cool to shortly meet you guys in WB. It didn't seem appropriate to me at that time to join you for the rest of the day. But after reading Robb's tr's , I felt really sad i didn't stay with you the rest of the day (and also 2 days later in WW). Hopefully you will visit belgium again in the next years and you can count on it that i will guide you around in the belgium themeparks. In the meanwhile i know how bumpercars in the usa look like but believe me, in europe every bumpercarride looks like the one in WB (most of the bumpercars are even going faster than the ones in WB) -benny"like Robb's new avatar very much"huygen
  7. as soon as this coaster opens, i will visit Phantasialand again. The artwork really looks promising :shock:
  8. you got a point there but, hey, halloween is halloween i'm not only comparing the Orlando halloween parties where the difference is really huge but also the difference btwn the halloween events in europe (dlp and upa) is also significant. And in paris the halloween event of disney is not called 'not-so-scray' but just 'halloween'.
  9. i think the universal parks are better than the disney ones. Also the Horror nights at universal are better.
  10. the onride pictures PA sells on HC are the best. You can really see how high HC is. I will be going to PA for 3 days during Halloween and really look forward to try out HC.
  11. I visited bpb for the first time 2 months ago and it has become one of my favourite european themeparks (together with Portaventura and europapark) Hereunder some pictures I took during our visit at bpb. (from the car we could spot the big one from quite a distance) (the first drop is not as steep as the one of Expedition G-force and i expected the speed of the ride to be more faster, but what a location :shock: The seabreeze in yr face made this ride brilliant !) (the steeple chase is by far the craziest coaster i ever did so far) (Irn Bru revolution : short but nice airtime (space invader and big dipper were closed during our visit) (Rollercoaster dd 1924 and NO safety bars :shock: ) (Grand National : no pictures of that duelling woodie but like to mention that this has become one of my favourite woodies. It is not that fast but brilliant airtime) (some darkrides) (Ice Blast) (Valhalla is my worldwide favourite boatride now. Very, very, VERY wet, brilliant effects, very long) (Wild mouse : OMG ... old, no trim brakes, 90° turns at full speed, ... Since my visit to bpb my number 1 wild mouse ride) (btw, i love bpb giving their rides such simple yet effective names : Wild mouse, Rollercoaster, ...) (double booster Spindoctor) (Ghost train : brilliant old dark ride) (Avalanche : short-but-heavy-and-with-airtime bobsled) (Bling)
  12. it is strange that during the last 3 weeks you were always in the neighbourhood and now you guys are back to the Usa We miss you already I have quite firm plans to make a 'Usa tour' next year June with for the moment still only a small group of friends. We would like to visit Sfga, hershey, Dorney, Paramount, Geaugau and cp + some bonus waterparks in about 10 days and perhaps we can meet over there again. I will certainly revert to you on this soon as i will have a lot of questions in organising this in a proper way (do i throw my questions on yr forum or shall i send you a pm ?) -- Benny
  13. abnormal boomerang : why don't they operate every boomerang like that. This seems to make the ride a bit more enjoyable.
  14. yeah, this is an awful coaster. I rode it for the first time this year in May and i thought it was still moving into position for an incredible launch when we entered the station again and had to get out. I couldn't believe the ride was finished already. But even worser i find Gouderix in Parc Asterix. I rode it once and never ever again although i will be in Asterix again for 2 days next month.
  15. yes Soren, plse post the rest aswell. Sorry but only just discovered this thread and i'm anxious to see the rest !
  16. don't know the name but plse don't tell me you liked it :shock: Such an irritating eurotrash song. And they are playing it all day long. I really don't understand how those spaceshot ops can bear with that all day (season) long
  17. nice to read that the park's operations director took the time to guide you around here's the picture I took fm you in WB
