  1. Edit: Guys, I'm sorry... I did something wrong and now the pictures are in the wrong order! You have to start at the bottom, although I started with the last picture when I was making the thread... Can somebody tell me how that happened? Okay, this photo TR is not gonna be fantastic but since it's my first, you gotta give me credit... Here's the setting: we went on a family-holiday in The Netherlands (in Sevenum, to be exactly) where we rented a house at a Landal-resort. We do this almost every year but this time we also went to a theme park with the whole bunch (yes, I admit: under my pressure). The kids (5, 3 and 1,5 years old) loved Toverland, so did I (three credits!). Although I spent most of the time watching the kids, I found some time to ride the rollercoasters and also some other attractions. Boomerang was fun (for a Vekoma) and riding indoor was new to me. Booster Bike was also fun, again a good coaster for a Vekoma. Maybe a bit rough in the turns but not that bad. Troy was fantastic! Good work, GCI! Really fast, this one (IMO). And it doesn't lose his speed at all! Overall the park was really great. Nice atmosphere, friendly people, good food. The weather wasn't good, it rained almost the whole day, but as you all know (or don't know) this is an indoorpark (except for some rides) so that wasn't such a big deal. Anyway, I'm not much into words, I'll let the pics to speak for themselves. Not much pics, I know. I was too busy watching the kids! Next week I'm going to Phantasialand without kids, I'll try to make more and better pics... Comments are more than welcome, good ones and bad ones! Our not-so-little house at the Landal-resort, less than a mile away from Toverland Let me introduce to you: my family! They may look normal but I can assure you, that's only for the picture... Here are two kids: Myra on the left (5 years old) en Liam on the right (3 years old and a Disney-fan Another kid (1,5 years old)! Everyone, meet Ella! Everyone: "Hi Ella!" Ella, meet TPR! Ella: "Leave me alone, I want to play!" The fun already starts at the resort! ERT in the ball pit for Myra and Liam! "Gotta concentrate to get these thingings at the other side!" Here we are at Toverland and this is a rollercoaster. Thank God it's a rollerskater and not a boomerang, although it's called Boomerang... Strange name but pure fun! Over the applecore it goes! Wheeeee! The kids loved the applecore ride better, btw This thing goes really fast for a kiddie coaster! Myra came out crying, she was scared to death! Eh, maybe that was because it's a Vekoma... Luckily she recovered soon. Here she is at the Miracle Route, although she keeps calling it "the forest where Snow White lives" Ah, Booster Bike! Quite good for a Vekoma. But remember kids: always take a good stretch before launch! Tracks, turns and grey skies as far as you can see... Bunny hops! And still stretching... Yes, you have to be in good shape for riding Vekomas Vrrrroooooom! Back Stroke log flume and GCI woodie Troy! All log flumes go "SKLOOOOSH!" Swampie the crazy mushroom is all "Uh-oh, another empty boat... I'm outta here!" Our day at Toverland had come to an end! Back at the resort, Ella's practising her TPR-skills at the arcade
  2. Aha! Glad that I found this thread Nice to know that I'm not the only one here interested in Formula 1! Bahrain was indeed very boring, maybe next race will bring some more suspense...

  5. Hi guys! Before I start, I want to apologize for possible grammatical (or other) errors... So I'm new here, that's for sure. And I'm also a brand new coaster enthusiast... I've always liked coasters (who doesn't?!) but it is since last year that I became "obsessed" And now that I've found this site, with all the great pics and videos, it's getting worse with this obsession... I'm already dreaming about coming along on one of your trips but no money for that right now, alas (I'm a poor student)! But I'm going to Toverland (The Netherlands) next week, and with some luck I'll be posting my very first trip report soon! Phantasialand (Germany) and Efteling (The Netherlands) are also already scheduled, hooray! Anyways, about my coaster credits... I have no idea! Around 10, that's all I can say. Not much but I'm working on it And my first coaster ever was a Vekoma corkscrew - Tornado at Walibi Belgium (may he rest in peace). That park, a.k.a. "Vekomaland", is just around the corner from where I live! But the park has lost a bit its glory... What a shame! I hope it will be better this year! Uhm, that'll be all... Don't have anything more to say for now (I think it's already enough)! Greetings to all of you crazy coaster-people!
