  1. 1. No. 6. Not very important, but I do like new gadgets. HD is good enough for my dodgy eyes. 7. I currently have a 3D television which I very rarely use for 3D. Glasses are too uncomfortable to wear and use for extended game playing. I hire 3D movies but they are more of a novelty than something I really need. When I replace my TV (in a number of years time) I would rate 4K as a higher priority than 3D but would probably get both if 3D is still going. - James.
  2. 1. Both auto-play off. It annoys me when a video I am not interested in starts playing. 2. Very rarely. If I am in the video or even more rarely if I have been on or will be on the ride. (Will not make much difference as I only have 87 friends ) 3. Videos / Photos. See 2 above. 4. The entire video. (Fast forward the lift hill....) 5. Important. Draws me in. 6. I just flick through the news feed two or three times a day. Due to the clutter I often miss stuff. 7. No.
  3. Great bonus video! Only complaint is that I am in it and I have a speaking part. I hate hearing myself on videos. Only joking Keep up the great work. Thanks. - James.
  4. 1. Blue-Ray from LoveFilm by post. 2. Amazon Prime Instant video, very rarely. Only use it as I get it cheap as I used to use LoveFilm Instant. 3. One or two. 4. Nope. 5. Full length, never. Occasional short videos mainly from Facebook news feed. - James.
  5. There was not any comments but I will post the rest of the photos from the Zombie dinner anyway!! Zombie dinner was an additional charge but (obviously) included food. As we visited during the week the dinner was after the parks rides closed. WARNING SPOILERS: For anyone planning on doing this dinner I would recommend not reading this report. As the park was closing we gathered outside the Russian themed building. Bjorn meeting one of the locals entertaining the queue. Time to head inside. Some of our hosts borrowed a camera and did a selfie. Very cool!! Selfie with Bjorn. During starter the curtains around a square stage in the middle of the room fell down to reveal a street dancer. Pretty good but not as good as people seen in TV talent shows. This was followed by a poll dancer Bjorn and Holger supplied a lot of poll dancer photos I have picked just a couple. Bjorn enjoying a beer. Another selfie. A Russian (ish) style dance with audience participation. Holger enjoying the main course. It was very good! The meal was a set meal, pasta, chicken and a tomato sauce. During dinner a projection effect on the stage showed a vortex which occasionally morphed into a scary face! Half way through dinner, there was an attempted break in by the zombies. The hosts protected us and walked around telling everyone to remain calm and enjoy our meal. (They told us this in Belgian, which I do not understand, so the affect was even better for me). The back lit screens were very effective. The zombies tried to break in through the main door. Lots of rattling. One Zombie did break in and was caught by a couple of the hosts and placed in a cage near the stage. The Zombie was taunted for most of the night. Zombie attack repelled, back to the show with some magic tricks. Bjorn joining in with some dancing. Desert, which was very good! The main host of the event was a drag queen. He/she spent the whole night drinking the bottle of vodka (water) and was flirting with a number of guests. He/she took took to the stage and sang a version of 'The show must go on' by Queen. As the song came to an end the Zombies broke into the room. At first a couple... The hosts tried to repel them... Then some more... The host were starting to be over run... Then a lot more... Too many !!! (Probably most of the Zombies from the entire park!) The lights failed and the hosts told us to run for our lives!!!!! The mood was slightly dampened as they told us to ensure we grab our coats and all our belonging first, but it was very effective! Not next (this) year but I would like to go back to Walibi Belgium's Halloween event! It was very good!
  6. Great trip report Divv. It was a real shame that I missed this trip. - James.
  7. Great trip report Bill! I find it amusing to see a group of us (including me) riding a swinging log rather than a mega-lite. - James.
  8. Fantastic trip report so far... Brings back lots of happy memories. I make a great Gorilla - James
  9. The pictures do not do the trip justice. The trip was even more EPIC than the pictures. This trip had stand out moments daily. To name just a few: - Eclipse tower climb, - Extreme ropes course, - SCAD tower, - TPR Grand Prix, - Random ropes courses, - Bouncy things of death, - Liesberg, - Grona Lund, - Loads of incredible flats including free booster (at Power Park) - and loads more. Not to mention loads of ERT and BEER!! A huge thanks to all the people I hung out with, the park staff and a bigger thanks to Robb and Elissa. EPIC!!!!!!! - James.
  10. Yay for EGPT (Exclusive Goofy Pool Time). A great welcome to Hong Kong Disneyland resort. Although Goofy was a bit too friendly for one person - James.
  11. Great trip report! Brings back lots of memories. My favourite ride at Amazing World was the amazing but strange 'half JCB' flat ride. - James.
  12. Lots of scare actors wandering the park. New for this year, Villa 13, as seen from the queue to the rapids ride. This is a house owned by Walibi Belgium converted into a horror maze. An extra fee was required but it was included as part of the RIP Pass. A very good horror maze with: - Lots of scare actors. (Almost too many, as every room had at least one scare actor and after a while you walked into a room expecting scare actors.) - Small groups (Five people in our group) - Video projections. Final horror maze, Project Z. This was my favourite horror maze. SPOILER: The main reason for this is that you go around the maze on your own. The maze was an obstacle course featuring tunnels and slides. At one point a scare actor stood right in front of me shouting. I had no idea what he was on about. Eventually I realised he was holding a pair of safety goggles that he expected me to put them on. Around the next corner it started to get a bit windy. At the end of the next corridor was a big industrial fan and you had to fight your way into the wind. Half way down this corridor (while I was busy fighting against the wind) a scare actor jumped out on me. (I almost **** myself) He has seen better days. Time for a drink at the Zombie bar. The girl kept turning around and telling us off for not dancing. Dancing in the bar. Time for a cocktail. (Actually, a plastic cup of wine, water or coke) I think they could have been slightly more inventive with there choice of cocktails. From the Zombie bar you can see a horror lurking behind the trees. It is horrible. Bjorn getting attacked by a Zombie. Very atmospheric. Zombie bride. Obligatory scare actor with chain saw. Sad scare actor as he does not have a chain saw. Hol Ger I am not sure if he likes having his photo taken. I was right. Running in the wrong direction. The lighting made the theming even more impressive. That its for Walbi Belgium day time. When there are a few comments, I will (eventually) post some photos of the Zombie dinner.
  13. Me with horns from Psyke Underground. Enjoying the view on the big wheel. Even more pictures of Loup-Garou. Where too next??? Next ride was Gold River Adventure, rethemed for Halloween to Zombie River. Pretty. Spooky. Skulls on sticks, Very atmospheric with the setting sun. Would of been even better in the dark. Enjoying the cruise. It was a bit of shame that the boats were so close together as you could see the boat ahead of you and it spoilt some of the scares. (Not much they could do about this without halving the throughput) Zombie in the hut.. Extra passenger on the boat. One Zombie distracts you while the other jumps out. These Zombies are sneaky blighter's. Next Horror Maze, Virus Z1. Themed to the out break of the virus. They supplied the medical masks. Another scare zone. Death from above. Cute bunny rabbit getting torn apart by a scary woman. The sun is shinning, why so sad? Clowns are scary. Continued...
  14. Arghhh... Zombies. Graveyard around Mad House 3D. Mad House 3D was a semi 3D psychedelic muli coloured maze. It was good but the one at Park Asterix was better. I think we have left Bjorn too long in the coffin... He's behind you... Next credit Loup-Garou / Werewolf. This was a great fun Vekoma wooden coaster. Not a lot of airtime, but a fast non brutal ride. Notice the queue going outside the queue area. RIP Pass saves the day again. Arghhh... An SLC. Why do Vekoma SLCs look so pretty but ride like rubbish... People in pain... It looks great... Vintage car ride with pumpkins.. and cobwebs... Lots of pictures of Loup-Garou from the big wheel. A full car park in the background.. Overview of this section of the park. Back to Loup-Garou Continued.....
