    Speaking about the next update....

     

    I finally found some time to post the PortAventura pictures. PortAventura is such an amazing park. They may not have the best coaster selection in the world but now with Shambhala which is probably my new #1 steel coaster. I still need to ride Geforce this year and who knows what the TPR Texas/Midwest trip may bring.

     

    Being such a great park it's a shame to see that the operations aren't always that fast. Luckily for us the park offered a quickpass for only 54 euro's per person for the whole stay. So for us that was three days. Quickpass included front of the line for most of the big rides except the droptower and 1 frontseat ride on the three big coasters.

     

    I really do think that PA has a winner in their park now. When the temp is 30+ degrees Shambhala really rules. I never experienced so much ejector airtime on a B&M before. So when you do plan to go to this park pick a very hot day to fully enjoy the Shambhalalalala experience. Dragon Khan is still ok but now with Shambhala over shadowing him.... well.

     

    Let go to the pictures!!

    Hey Woody!

    Yes that's right... The parkmap.

    Q-ing times. It was really busy this day but no queues for us.

    First of to Baco!

    IMG_1636_1.jpg.2b153c430ee175439f2a639f8870bb24.jpg

    What a disappointment. I tried several seats. Outside front, inside second and yes outside last row. I guess there isn't a good seat on this one. Don't get me wrong the launch is very, very, very good after that it just tries to kill you.

    Barrel rolling all the way.

    IMG_1693.thumb.jpg.abcf4b0c3142b46c2f70609732d7f795.jpg

    Coming down the first drop. Airtime from top till bottom.

    Going through the massive turnaround.

    IMG_1653.jpg.336572f414f55e399a9b10edfdf244c4.jpg

    That little speed bump after the turnaround produced massive airtime too.

    IMG_1653_1.jpg.98c33345554cefe7cc5211566276101d.jpg

    Yup.

    IMG_1691.thumb.jpg.04248b2416f971912f8adbdaaed3f84f.jpg

    Thanks for reading and make sure to visit this place some day.

  2. Hi everyone,

     

    Last week Benny (groteslurf), Michael and me made a trip to spain. Our original itinerary contained the both Madrid parks, Terra Mitica and PortAventura. Unexpected the both Madrid parks and Terra Mitica seemed to be closed on the beginning of the week. So our park visits were shortened to only Parque Warner and PortAventura. We had a great time though in Pinto, Benidorm (It was Bennydorm during our stay) and Salou.

     

    I forgot to bring my camera to Parque Warner so no pictures from that place. The park was a bit of a let down. There are two good coasters but park operations were really bad. Luckily it was not too busy. Oh and surprisingly Stunt Fall was down for the day.

     

    Actually this report is all about PortAventura!

     

    We arrived on wednesday june 12th and we stayed on property at Hotel Caribe. The Hotel is awesome, really a great atmosphere.

     

    Will post Hotel Caribe pictures first.

    IMG_1612.jpg.4fd3ebd9fecb224613694878f9eaba12.jpg

    What do I spot over there? More in next update.

  3. Hi everyone!!!

     

     

    It was time for my first park visit of 2013. Phantasialand offered a great deal... visiting before april 30th will give you a free ticket for the summer season! Hooray. Too bad many more people had the same idea. The park was packed but Phantasialand was kind enough to extend the opening hours till 19:00. So we still mananged to do all the rides. I also shot some pictures of the new waterride Chiapas an amazing project!

     

    Anyway let's just go to the pictures....

    IMG_1459.thumb.jpg.652736cdb092fea2bf6f827001be873f.jpg

    The first thing when entering the main entrance.

    IMG_1456.jpg.5a9b1e6decd2ec0ac1cd27363523abc2.jpg

    but we waited 35 minutes maximum.

    IMG_1457.jpg.cfd8f5be846e937066d79a828d06933c.jpg

    IMG_1449.jpg.30c5a242d217687e86dc6d18e7e9b01a.jpg

    The queue of Michael Jackson started all the way back here.

    IMG_1450.jpg.3deb69b58928d0e39238efa1d16b4290.jpg

    and all the back there. The queue moved fast though. Great job Phantasialand.

    IMG_1451.jpg.2c87f470d11ffc0caa4863818d620b21.jpg

    Looking forward for the final result.

    IMG_1488.thumb.jpg.b081f6da75c344de5b7e3d1c2ba6b485.jpg

    Can't have a report without a Geldautomat! Thanks for reading.

  4. So it's been a while since my last update.....

     

    This next park on our trip was Plopsa Germany Holidaypark. This park is also known as Geforceland. This trip was the quest for the best train and seat on Geforce. I think our final choise was the non X train left backseat. Or maybe it was the X train. Can't remember anymore... Well maybe it's not that important. Just go and ride Geforce you will like it anyway.

     

    I think it's about time to go to the pictures.....

    IMG_0706.jpg.76e41f45a93e07fa444f064fa719a658.jpg

    The new entrance area.

    IMG_0709.thumb.jpg.78b71d89de6996207c4e463b665ce30c.jpg

    Robin was afraid he couldn't make the height requirements.

    IMG_0778.thumb.jpg.4b390c15b8446bcf6770ee2d2f7585ca.jpg

    After all that excitement he had to text home.

    IMG_0714.jpg.8aa2ad5001a128e8859b1fc9e53eaf40.jpg

    But first the celebration of Super Wirbel!!

    IMG_0718.jpg.0a2df3ac22f95e870fa58c42443c49c2.jpg

    It was it's third consecutive season without derailing.

    IMG_0716.jpg.f2d70d8488915bc15d3eb1a0d1699f45.jpg

    I think this is the most important rule... Hinter die rote linien.

    IMG_0715.jpg.b6850ce47fcba094619800020be30fa3.jpg

    I don't know what happens if you cross the rote linien? Did somebody already tried?

    IMG_0717.jpg.aa708a3354f3b3128d089a359665cb7b.jpg

    I see pain.

    IMG_0787.thumb.jpg.50cccac4a8cdb9984d04ec8b69272f92.jpg

    This is the X train. This way you can recognise the good train.

    IMG_0723.jpg.c3b82464cf0677d9088abda2946ea668.jpg

    The problem is.. I can't remember which the better one is.

    IMG_0771_1.thumb.jpg.7e133b4aacb93938f15f0cfad205c989.jpg

    Well I gues it's great anyway. X or non X.

    Two dorks and Holly. Thanks for reading!!!

  5. I will inform the San Francisco Giants that you drafted them when I go see a Giants game in California in a few weeks!!!

     

     

    We are almost through the draft!

     

     

    Medusa1861 is now on the clock for 3 selections!!!

     

     

    This will get the draft up to date with the exception that we are waiting on Jomisaca for 2 picks and Zingoman for 3 picks, and whenever you guys read this, you can make your selections at any time.

     

     

    UPDATE - Big Mike sent out 4 private messages today to the last 4 people we are waiting for in the Not So Epic Contest! We will give them a full week, Tuesday, July 3rd at Midnight to enter a picture!

     

    The following Wednesday is also the day Big Mike leaves for the Northern California Leg of The Big Mike Road Show 2012 World Tour!

     

    So either way, with 6 players or 7 players, the next Round of the Not So Epic Contest will go up on Wednesday!

     

     

    Peace, Big Mike

     

    This will be a mission impossible for me!

    Sorry Larry. Luckily I still got my memories!

     

    Europapark self was quite busy but still got plenty of rides in thank to the single rider lines at Wodan and Blue Fire. Wodan is a good fun GCI coaster with great interaction with Blue Fire and Atlantica maybe not the best GCI but that area of the park is now just amazing. It broke down quite a few times during the day but they still were able to keep open the ride.

     

    Europapark is the best themepark in the word, let's go to the pictures!

    Our ride!! No seriously it's the new theming of the Silverstar station.

    IMG_0641.jpg.fb603d951c1d2def5ef9c65dc492242c.jpg

    This happened quite a few times.

    IMG_0629_1.jpg.a10dfabb08d3634789f76bcb085e03f2.jpg

    But this happened also a quite few times! The drop is really good.

    We also used the normal queue which was a mistake. The line was about 2 hours while the single rider line only was about 20 minutes.

    Hey!

    IMG_0675.thumb.jpg.fbbae23b3809f32292ae2fc9f84c2c93.jpg

    At least we could see all the theming and understand the story of the ride.

    IMG_0677_1.jpg.d39aae7a60a01555561bf84f6af4de06.jpg

    and take some more pictures of the ride.

    And we we're able to pick the backseat which is prpbably the best seat on the train. We love row 12.
