  1. awwww it all looks sooooo TPRish! Sorry I cant be there with you guys this year! But I'll be keeping up with the trip reports! great to see a large British contingent and the Scandi t-shirts look ace! Hope you have a good time. Elz
  2. awesome photos divv and great videos Craig! really enjoyed the trip must do it again soon! Glad Chrissy got so much video time, she's an official TPR geek just like the rest of us! E
  3. Awesome photo report Divv - miss TPR trips sucks i cant make one in 2009. Walibi Belgium... the best advertisment for contraception ive ever seen!
  4. thats like Eurosat, only with the lights on do you realise just how close you are to banging your head and losing your arms, you also discover that someone needs to invent a "car wash" for rollercoasters.
  5. ^ the party train was one of my favorite moments of the whole trip!
  6. nice TR Chuck really enjoying it, my head seems to appear in lots of your photos lol
  7. its such a shame I was in mixed thoughts before we got there becuase id heard good and bad things about the place, but its hard to say i wasnt disappointed by it. The rapids ride was decent, but the place was abandoned and it just seemed like a place that was being left to die such a shame for a place that could have been full of life.
  8. Extra Extra Extra ERT on EGF was amazing. The guy running the ride was a maniac! A stunning ride, even with the 'trims' that first drop, quote Lou quoting Dave (TheBat), really is a religious experience because you'll be needing the messiah to calm you down after it! Best coaster of the trip and a quaint little theme park to boot, again they let you put six in a flume boat, which we took serious advantage of. That vekoma could do with... well taking down really but the Star Flyer was insanely good and the Intamin drop tower was fun. Great fun on a great day.
  9. ^ I completley agree with you Norman. I remember talking about this to a few people on the trip, specificly Brad (mammut was his 100th!). I think Mammut 'fits' Tripsdrill amazingly well, ive already said that I think Tripsdrill was the most beautiful park ive probably ever been to, and it is a 'family park', its not necessarialy intended to be the most thrilling, hair-raising park in the galaxy, its intended for families to come and ride all the rides together and for that fact Mammut works. Sure, compared to Troy, Colossos and other woodies we rode on the trip it pales in comparison, but this new rollercoaster company who've built the ride have done themselves a credit by building into the aesthetic and cultural value of the park, im sure the mothers, fathers and young children love the place and i can't disagree with that.
  10. ^ Not as bad as the 7 year old boy dressed as Little Red Riding Hood on the Michael Jackson ride at Phantasialand. Sure the boy hasn't reached puberty yet, but his scream was so shrill that im sure most of our ears were bleeding! and yes Tripsdrill, in my opinion the most naturally beautiful (even over Efteling, who must spend millions on their gardening bill) park, surrounded by vineyards and luch countryside. On the way to Tripsdrill we drove through what I imagined rural Germany to look like, houses with pointy roofs, lots of BMWs and thin streets it really was amazing. Tripsdrill also let you sit 6 in a Log Flume boat, which we took to our advantage putting Steve, Brad, Erik, Jes, Divv and Russ in (probably the heaviest log flume boat in the world). And one of the funniest moments of the trip when a small boy started playing with one of the sprinklers just outside the flume, then turned round and fired it at Lou full pelt. Awesome park, definitley worth a visit, even if just for the wine-tasting!
  11. nice to know that my participance on the Spain 07 trip was worthwhile...
  12. Zeus was an awesome ride! The airtime was insane! I really enjoyed the rapids ride, and i mentioned this on the Europe 08 board... that it wasnt necessarially the ride, but the social construct of the ride (only 1 of you will get soaked, which one will it be!) makes it so much fun when you've got a boat filled full of mates. Its probably the same with any ride, in sure the TPR ERT on Troy made it even better than if i was there by myself.
  13. who took the photo of the Brits with the Phantasialand character underneath the Berlin looking monument? and its MY signature move now.... mwahaha
  14. awesome tr chuck, and the RCT comment got me laughing too. Agreed with everyone else that Toverland was just so much fun, sure the hospitality we got from the park was amazing, but they too were genuinely thrilled to have TPR there. Troy was defo my #2 coaster of the trip and defo #1 Woodie. Great night, loads of fun! BEER!
