  1. Ofcourse the last seat is the saet for the most egf freaks. Make sure to hit the left seat on the last row since thats gives you the most effect on the drop. For the rest of the ride i prefer the front row to have a great view and speed feeling. Just Enjoy
  2. I've been there last week and must say that we had a great time there. I get there every year at least once. If you need some more pics then i suggest you should go to: http://www.turbolaaf.nl/nieuwforum/viewtopic.php?t=1188 I'm a bit to lazy to make another tripreport so anjoy the 98 pictures
  3. Damn looks like i'm going to miss a credit. For the first time i'll be traveling to Sweden and Norway in the next two weeks and we planned Liseberg on tuesday Since it should be one of the better coasters around there so poor old me.... Still a bad thing to happen and i'm sorry for those who injured.
  4. Nice report (again) so it seems you enjoyed it. Anyway I can tell ya that the wooden coaster isn't comming on the open space what should block the view from the boosterbike. On that part there will rise the Wiegand flyer (like the bobs but suspended) in 2007 or 2008 so.... The wooden coaster will rise behind the Boosterbike near the station. But thanks for the pics and fun
  5. Looks like you had a great time over here I live near the Efteling adn i love the park a lot. Seems that you didn't do Toverland ? Anyway i hope you liked Holland and Belgium a lot. Must be the same like me since i like America also every time i get there.
  6. Nice to hear that since I know the most of the crew that works there. Rene is one of them and he also works with me on my site. Together we travel a lot to other parks included florida and acros Europe. Since i know him i also know Lianne and your boss Caroline where all the info comes from. Next time i get there i will look for you. So far off topic For those who do not know what the other ride will be : http://www.wiegandslide.com/produkte.html Then have a look at the wiegand wieflyer.
  7. Trust me i can get there faster then you think And i'm also in a good contact with the parks staf and press relations. So far there hasn't been a release for a layout however some people did released what the second attraction would be and thats a Wiegand inverted bobsled. I keep you informed as soon when i know more.
  8. Robb went there last summer and did liked the park. Keep in mind that its a small park that mostly is indoor. Its also more for children then for adults but still its a great park
  9. Hey everybody! This thread is simple!

  10. The wheel is not allowed to turn since the thing has been checked. What i understand so far is that in urgency there is not enough time to evacuate everybody on the wheel. Thereby its also a fact that it gets the capp. down so they just don't want to use it. I did it once when it opened but its not such a major part for that ride. They also looked for other options like a transport band to roll the boats up to the slide but that was also impossible. So far i suggest that you just forget it
  11. I've been there on 1-06-06 and i must say its a great coaster. However Nemesis is still better in my opinion. Off course I did take some pictures and also in the station. The pictures can be found here: http://www.turbolaaf.nl/nieuwforum/viewtopic.php?t=987 And some wallpaper formats: http://www.turbolaaf.nl/forumpic/bm1.JPG http://www.turbolaaf.nl/forumpic/bm2.JPG http://www.turbolaaf.nl/forumpic/bm3.jpg PLease select save target as.
  12. No its not a part of the queue but you will be able to walk trough it. The themed part of the park (africa) will have two parts to enter it. The first one is near the mine train entrace witch will guide you trough the loop. The other one begins with a bridge over the road between the park what brings you to the middle of the section near the small buildings. You could see www.phantasialand.de for a parkmap to understand what i mean.
  13. They also has changed their restaints with smaller ones so your head is no more a basketbal. http://www.coastersandmore.com/pic/eas06/sitzg.jpg
  14. Looks freaking nice. I'm lookin g forward to met up with tom again when he will be traveling europe. Anyway i'm comming over in just 12 days so lets hope i'll have the same fun. Thanks for the pictures they look awesome. (n.g.t. phone home lol )
  15. Seems like you're having a great time. Only 16 day's left till i get there
  16. Jup I was there today and seems that someone else had placed the link to my pictures Anyway not much has changed but its still something that is great to see every day. The biggest changes are the main building that has some more paint and some more concrete on diffrent points of the construction site. The Chinese guys where still working hard to get the theming done. I think that next weekend there will be more parts under a roof (helix etc).
  17. And there is a undate again. When you have a close look then you see that the tunnel where the train will fly into als has been covered and closed with some wood. The inside has changed a bit with the lights and some steel parts for the gates to the boats. Anyway looks fine by me so far The tunnel is the entrace with the boat to the dark ride part. When entering the station you will walk behind the windows on the first floor of the houses. The side view
  18. Drievliet will take you a hour if your there for the coasters. Its not just dat the park isné small but the driving distance between Walibi and Drievliet taks also 1.5 hours. The park has 4 coasters but there is only one that is a bit smooth. The maurer spinning is the worst i've ever done so do not go to the park for that. If you like some flat rides like a enterprise, breakdance and afterburner then you've got some more time to spend over there. The whole park can be done in 2 hours. If you would like to combine this with a other park then i suggest you to take a smaller park near the coast like Duinrell. Toverland is just to far away for driving over there just for the afternoon. A second option is combine Slagharen and Hellendoorn both 2 smaller parks but verry near to each other. Hope i helped you a bit. Anton van den Akker
  19. your planning: Day1: Ariving and Amsterdam Dungeon. Day2: Walibi world / Toverland Spending the night in Amsterdam Day3: Drievliet / Efteling Day4: Bobbejaanland / Walibi Belgium Spending the night in Belgium Thats a bit difficult to combine these parks in such a few days. My advice: Day 2 only Walibi world then travel over to direction of the Efteling and Toverland. Take a Hotel near the Efteling for this night and use the next day for the efteling. Travel further to Toverland and use a Hotel near Toverland. Next day (day3) you should spend the morning for Toverland (will take you in about a few hours to see the park). Then near afternoon drive over to Belgium (its a easy drive for about 1.5 hour) and visite the rest of the afternoon Bobbejaanland. In the evening you should travel to Walibi Belgium to a hotel over there. The next day (day4) will be used for Walibi Belgium to Enjoy. The crowds on the road are bussy during some times but you will travel in the evenings when you take my advice and then the roads aren't that full. On this way you will not see Drievliet but that park is not really something to look after If there is anything that i can help you with then just let me know by email or PM. Even MSN is possible

  21. And thats why i ask people for their pictures But youre free to use my pictures on the way you like it. http://www.turbolaaf.nl/fotoboek/index.php The pictures i'm looking for are for the information part of the new site that is being nuild @ the moment. Thanks so far. Anton"hoping on pictures" van den Akker
  22. The online use will be a website. I never place a © on my pictures because i hope that people enjoy them. So thats why i do not place any pictures with ©. Its still up to you yess but there is nobody so far that has send me a picture from a train or restaint. Even on other American sites they did not response to my request. A bit a shame I would say since the most European sites do like to help people out. If there is any picture that you would like to share with me about a train or what comes near that then please mail it to me. Its just a 2 minute job we really need some diffrent train types.
  23. Hi, I'm looking for some pictures from diffrent coaches for online use. I prefer pics from the seats and complete coaches without people. Like Riddlers Revange or X etc etc. They must be taken by your own and not have a © when possible. Is there anyone that can help me out ? Maybe you Rob ? Use my mail adres or this topic for placing regarding the pictures. Thanks so far, Anton "hoping on your support" van den Akker
  24. Thx again maliboomer for your reaction and input. Do not worry about the stress in our trip because we have 15 day's to do 10 parks and we have 2 day's to travel to and from the US. Between the 15 day's we also have planned some rest days to relax. My little group (4 persons) are all themepark diehards so thats not the problem. To adjust to your timezone would take one day but thats the day we will take a simple park. I've been in America before and its not that hard to adjust so.... When my complete planning is done then i will put it up here so you can see it. Anton"thx so far"van den Akker
  25. Now thats a reaction thx For the parks we are doing: alvey hits 2 parks a day in europe so to much....i don´t think zo. This is a themepark related holiday and thats what we have planned. The villa is on waterviewloop in Haines city. Old town is something we will do in the evening so thats no problem. That it will be crowded is something i expect right now..... The waterparks are also a time for us to relax and not slide the whole day around What i really would like to know is what day's are the best for some of the parks with less crowds. I can believe that BGT is crowded on a saturday but what about on a weekly day like tursday ? Thx so far Anton" hoping on youre reaction" van den Akker
