  1. Oh I`m so happy that finally one of my Videos (Andy Korb`s Park Asterix) has made it to this contest. Thanks for the critics so far - This is really one of our slower paced videos, because I wanted to show some of the other aspects of the park and the fun you can have. This video is part of our coasterfriends dvd, and so the park coverage is split in two parts - but I just sent this part as something different. So I`m sorry that Barry is missing some coasters. By the way, I really appreciate that my video is among those great other videos, made with so much talent! I`m really happy th
  2. The constructor is a german company called "Holzbau Cordes". They recently did the wooden constructions for Colossos (Heide Park), Balder (Liseberg, sweden) or El Toro (SFGA) - but not the technical things or the track. This time they did all the things! Just the cars are from Gerstlauer. The ride was calculated by Stengel Engineering. I`m a little bit split if it feels more like a classic or a "speed woodie". The coaster is really calm, you really can hear him only if he passes by. It doesn`t shake to much - just enough for a classic coaster feeling. And in these early days nearly ev
  3. Today was the official opening of the new wooden coaster "Mammut" - built in this lovely green park "Tripsdrill". So I don`t want to bore you guys with lame introductions about the construction, because you`ll find all the facts somewhere in this forum. But I can tell you, that this coaster is a great addition to the parks line-up of lovely attractions. The speed is not awesome at all and airtime is just as little as possible but this coaster makes a lot of fun - especially if you think that we don`t have that amount of wooden coasters here in old europe. The park wanted to have a f
  4. . What do you find most useful about the front page? Forum Updates 2. What do you find least useful about the front page? 3. Is anything on the front page confusing? I think the first Nav Bar (what`s new, park index....) is really to small. I`ve often searched for some of the informations which are linked their. 4. How far do you scroll down the front page looking for updates? I only scroll down if I`ve too much time to spend - and that`s not very often 5. How often do you look at the front page? daily 6. How often do you click on the "whatsnew" link? Never - it
  5. Thanks for the awesome pictures. I think the park looks pretty themed! And I`m sure that HRP will be a big hit!
  6. Thank you very much for the report - Brilliant TR. My last Orlando visit was just 4 months ago, but now this TR makes me wanna go back as soon as possible But I`ve also to say, that the highly advertised "dolphin slide" looks pretty lame.
  7. you can count the coasters at coaster-count.com. All the travelling coasters are in their database.
  8. Ya, money is definitely a big issue - because it`s not the cheapest thing on earth to have a great day at the Oktoberfest. Hotel prices are steep - if you want to do a lot of rides you`ve to spend a lot of money (prices are between 5 to 8 dollars each) - and of course the beer prices are at the moment 7,90 Euro ( that`s 11 US dollars per litre). Buuuut: You also can have fun just walking the streets, enjoying the atmosphere, watching people and just buy some food at some food stalls. That`s really inexpensive. If you want to see more hammered people I`ll try to locate some people i
  9. Last part... thanks for reading this report - maybe see some of you next year! 9 from 10 after 5 liter of beer!!! (that`s about 1,25 gallon of beer) after a fun filled night at the 10.000 people tent, it is time for some outdoor fun (if you can stand it after the beers) and he tried to mess with the natives Josh from Texas is our gentleman with the rose can you guess why I love Dirndl? ...or you`ll drop your pants! ...you need some pills for your headache... another tip - dont`t drink too fast - otherwise... it can get very loud here
  10. and we go on with our virtual trip... Eurostar - the largest transportable Inverter one of the countless flat rides Toboggan - this slide has a long,long tradtition - and it`s funny to see the people using the very fast conveyor band to get to the top - and guess what happens if the people are drunk? Yes, you`re right! another great ghost ride by the way: it`s called "Hoellenblitz" - translated: "Hell`s lightning" but way too expensive - about 8 dollar for a ride great fun with fire and water effects inside - and a lot of spinning the biggest transp
  11. Oktoberfest 2007 is now 5 days "old" and we`ve had a great starting weekend with more than 1 million visitors, just this first weekend. Now I`ve some minutes to share some of the great photos from these years Oktoberfest here in munich. After last years great fun with Derek and his whole gang, we highly recommend every themeparkreview fan to visit us in 2008! you know this one! that`s the Bavaria and you`ll get a big smile! give a heart to the one you like You see some nice Dirndls here - a Dirndl is a dress for a woman - it`s also a nickname for a cute girl e
  12. All I can say about this poll is, that Derek is 100 % right (page6). I like all you guys in the states, but hey, there are a lot of good parks all over the world, like in Europe or Asia. This Amusement Today poll is so focused on the states. Polls in general are always hard to trust, and this one is no exception. I used to be a AT reader, but this newspaper is far to uninteresting to pay such a high oversea price.
  13. How far north are you starting? If you will be near Lake Compounce (CT) make sure you check out their Halloween event. I`ll do most of the parks between Montreal and Orlando (with two flight segments in between), so yes, I`ll do Lake Compounce as well.
  14. Oh man - I`m so excited! 35 days until my 4 weeks Halloween trip through some 22 parks on the US east coast - ending with the greatest of all: HHN on the 31st october and the 1st november - Oh I can`t wait anymore....
  15. Thanks for the great TR and the pictures. Now I know that I miss Japan so much since my 2006 trip. Tokyo and all the cultural sites, the food (yes you can have great food on every corner), the nice people and of course the parks. There are so many great memories - and if I look at your pictures I still can remember the awful day at Fuji Highland - just the kiddie and indoor coaster worked on that day - but so I`ve an excuse to come back again - and again and again Japan is great!
