  1. I did find another video of the VR Coaster: It belongs to this article: http://vrjam.devpost.com/submissions/36324-vr-coaster
  2. Something with a name like "Extra-schnell-lösliche-achterbahn-track-schutz-plastik-polymer-folie"
  3. I guess, if you make an auction for "Give kids the world", you would find some nerds like me to help it unwrapped for the first ride on Taron and climb around that structure. Exhausting but interesting
  4. Hey DoinItForTheFame! Funny! Phantasialand quoted you in this article and explained why everything got wrapped. Reason: to make sure nothing of the technic and track gets damaged while working on the theming. Here is the German article: http://magazin.phantasialand.de/verhuellt-wie-christo-achterbahn-taron-eingpackt/
  5. Oh man, amazing news! And even greater for the park and perhaps for Europe... The first RMC in Europe could mean the challenge starts.. I'm looking forward to get some old coasters worked out by them. Maybe they start with Bandit around my corner in Movie Park Germany, that would be very obliging My personal question is now, how will I manage it to go there in 2016!? I would like to do that with TPR, but doing a second trip besides (maybe) China might not be possible ;-/ Time to save money after this Scandi Trip Good luck to the park so far!
  6. Thank you for the report James! Great to remember the fun we had. See you soon! Can´t wait to see the rest of our trip in this PhotoTR. Go on
  7. WFChris; that´s because I merged two photos together Sorry for beeing silent for so long, had much to do besides sitting in front of the PC This is just a small update of the rest of my stay at Abu Dhabi. I´ll try to upload the next pictures of Dubai and the amazing waterparks in the upcoming days. OK, on the second day, we did the BIG BUS TOUR through Abu Dhabi and the Yas Island. It wasworth the money. You can hop on and off during the day on specific sightseeing points. On the third day, I planed to do a half day visit at Ferrari World to get as many rides of Formula Rossa in the front row I would be able to. I didn´t take much pictures there, because nothing special has changed there and there are already many Ferrari World Photo TRs in the forum; I did one too in 2010. look here for more about Ferrari World. In the evening I was looking forward to few rounds on the real Formula One Track on Yas Marina Circuit by bicycle. It´s an offer by the Yas Marina Circuit called Train Yas. You just have to register one time and you get the permission (for free) to train between 6pm and 9pm every tuesday . You can either run there or take the track on your bicycle. They offer many bicycles to rent for free and when they´re out of stock, you can rent them for a small amount of money. It was amazing to cycle around these track and we had so much fun, that we did that for the complete 3 hours Today on the list, the Big Bus Tour through Abu Dhabi and Yas Island There is the Waterpark Yes, Ikea is here since the beginning in 2010 The Grand Mosque Next day, was Ferrari World day Of course I had many rides on Formula Rossa in the front row! What else should I do here Nice idea to practice your pit stop abilities Still closed and there, waiting to be removed? Yummy Looking forward for tonight! Yeah! Free cycling through the circuit by TRAIN YAS! 3 ours are possible form 6-9pm enormous fun, but exhausting Even my mom couldn´t stop cycling around the track for the complete 3 hours and had fun. see you in a few days for the next update! [coastertube]http://www.themeparkreview.com/coastertube/play.php?vid=IMG_20131205_090743_pq23[/coastertube] And that´s the youtube video in 3D HD
  8. Same for me. I like Option 1 because of the Twitter feed or any actual feed, to see what´s going on at the moment.
  9. I gave Google Translate a go, and came out with, well, something close enough to make sense out of! You did it in the described, official, correct way. It´s more enjoyable when you put it directly in your mouth. BUT, there is an unofficial adult-way Combine it with 2cl vodka instead of water! Either in a glass like you did, or my prefered way... put the content in your mouth, take a shot of vodka, shake your head and enjoy your "mouthdrink" ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Oh, and by the way... Great report!
  10. I really love to visit the UAE just because of their amazing Waterparks and this one is the next high rated after Aquaventure and Wild Wadi! It´s a perfect addition for Yas Island and Ferrari World and I´m sure with it they´ll get more tourists on Yas Island... wait for the Mall and they´ll have a filled park. The good thing about this 3 waterparks is, that everyone has it´s own unique speciality. Wild Wadi with it´s great connected ways of Masterblasters and Slides, Aquaventure has the perfect Lazy River with the rafting sections and this park now is a more typical Waterpark and has great and special slides, a beautiful theming and this funny Bandit Bomber wich interacts with the crowd and slides around the Pearl Mountain. Same to you, Dan! I enjoyed the time, sadly it was to short. I saw you had some great days during christmas and the new year. The firework was amazing! - Absolutely and best description! ^^^Elissa, I can´t wait to visit the park with you!
  11. I just use Facebook and Youtube. Facebook for The Social Connection; especially to stay in contact with my Themeparkreview friends from the Trips. And YouTube for my HD and 3D videos and to watch your amazing coastervideos etc. It's all about Themeparkreview - at least this was the main reason and beginning I went into those 2 portals Oh, now I remember, what I need to do now! Buy the new "Rollercoasters in the Raw" Blu-Ray!
  12. Hi there! I wish everyone a happy new year! It took me time to prepare this report, so sadly I wasn´t ready in December after my Trip. This was my 3rd Trip to the UAE. The first was at the opening of Ferrari World on Yas Island in 2010. During my plans for that Trip, my mother asked to join the Trip and we had a great time doing our first mother and son Trip since 20 years or so. That time we said we´ll do that again. My second Trip was in 2012 with TPR, totally different and a huge fun - what else would you expect, when you do a Trip with great participants / friends and being on a Trip organized by Elissa and Robb! - I´m looking forward and hope to be on the next UAE Trip sometime in the next years Since I had enough off days in the last winter and still enough money after this years Trips, I made this last minute plans to Abu Dhabi and Dubai, to check out the new Waterpark Yas Waterworld, cycle around on a Formula 1 Track, see the new additions to the Waterparks in Dubai and try to meet some friends. Let us start with the first days of the Trip in Abu Dhabi. The main reason I came back here is "Yas Waterworld", the new Waterpark next to Ferrari World on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. The complete Yas Island area has changed a lot since I was here in 2010. The Hotels over there have now a beach, free Shuttle busses to every attraction on Yas Island and a good connection to the center of Abu Dhabi. When the big Yas Island Mall is finished in around 1 year, this location ist really amazing - and don´t forget the plans for the Warner Brother Movie Park next to Yas Waterworld. The ground was already cleaned to start the work. Great thing about the new waterpark, you can buy a combi ticket for Ferrari World and Yas Waterworld. Spaceship Ferrari World Say Hello! Yeah, IKEA is everywhere... [coastertube]http://www.themeparkreview.com/coastertube/play.php?vid=Yas_Waterworld_-_Rundgang_-_3D_HB_-_links_xx4u[/coastertube] Nice cabanas...

  13. I forget to post some pictures, after it finally opened. Karl and I visited that strange sculpture last month.
  14. Hey Larry! I got some outside pictures of "El Secreto del los Mayas" from Port Aventura: Feel free to use them; by the way. If you need the higher resolution, just let me know; rezized them to 800pix for the forum.
  15. Great Report Dubaidave. Sadly I wasn´t able to come around in the last month and I´m not sure, whether I can make it at the end of the year. When I´m around, I won´t forget to call you. Since I don´t have any other photos of Hili Fun City and didn´t shoot enough photos for a PhotoTR on the Dubai Trip - it was a really amazing Trip - I hope you allow me, to upload these Photo of the Park Map to your Photo TR. Greetings, Ledgy
  16. Hi there! Finally great things happen at the old closed ground of the (Gertrude approved) CentrO Park at Oberhausen. I made a PhotoTR in 2010, look here. Like I informed you last time, MERLIN Entertainment bought this Park and it´s located next to their Sealife Center at the Oberhausen CentrO Shopping Mall. A half year ago MERLIN made this press release: (translated with google) Today I spent Oberhausen CentrO a visit and tried to capture some progress. Sadly I couldn´t get that good pictures, but the area is taking shape. Oh Gertrude! Do you want to check out the building ground, too? Nice to meet you again. That´s an overall view of the new building ground. On the left is the lifthill of the waterride "TEST ZONE" On the right, the finished building of the Lego Discovery Center. Logos are installed, too. I tried to zoom in a bit (A picture of the Sealife Adventure Park Facebook Page1) (A picture of the Sealife Adventure Park Facebook Page1) (A picture of the Sealife Adventure Park Facebook Page1) (A picture of the Sealife Adventure Park Facebook Page1) The Park Map of the Discovery Center (a picture of the Lego Discovery Center Oberhausen homepage2) Lego Kingdom Quest (Shooting Ride) Lego DUPLO Dorf (DUPLO Village) Lego STUDIOS 4D Cinema Lego FRIENDS (with Karaoke) Like I mentioned in the pictures they launched a new 1. "Sealife Adventure Park" Facebookpage 2. "Lego Discovery Center Oberhausen" Homepage where you can find some of this pictures. The Sea Life Homepage has an cheaper offer for the Adventure Park and some additional information about the park. (like before translated with google) What I could see today and have heard before the most attractions of the old park concept are removed (incl. Spinning Mouse, Ferris Wheel, Pirate Ship). The Maze, the Playgrounds and the huge Slide Tower still exist
  17. I would like to see the videos in HD, either as a download or a Blu-ray. For me it's simpler and faster to use the streamed or download option instead of the Blu-ray, but I normally order them after a while, too
  18. ^^ I made them with my phone and used some additional apps; one of them was an app to get a model effect - it's called "Tiltshift".
  19. Thank you! ^ I'm surprised that you even try to debate about this with your "Maurerpipi" Alster and Holsten Lemonade (just kidding)

  21. HI together! Today was the last day of North-Rhine-Westphalia´s largest Fun Fair in Düsseldorf the "Rheinkirmes"! It´s not that big than the bavarian Oktoberfest, but still one of the best Fun Fairs in Germany and compared to the Oktoberfest, the most important difference are the large beer tents which are missing there. There are just a few of it, but that doesn´t matter, because next connected by two bridges and a ferry connection you can reach the the old town of Düsseldorf with "The longest bar of the World" and our tasty dark beer ("Altbier"). The attractions are similar; there are 4 coasters - the only one which is sadly missing this year was the best of them - Olympia Looping. The coasters over there were Alpina Bahn, Höllenblitz, Spinning Racer, Wild Mouse. Alpina Bahn was the most surprising thing for me, because they spent all Trains new axes and because of that it´s a really smooth, but more intense ride again and the track is totally silent like at Teststrecke or for example Shock - The Steam Machine at Rainbow Magicland, etc. I really can recommend a new ride on it! Let me show the pictures of this year in a different kind of view; I like this unsharp and colorful view at night. Let´s start... Spoiler for next weekend! Füchschen Alt Beer More Beer, traditional Schlüssel Alt Good Old Alpina Bahn... Even more amazing and intense with new axes on every train... ... and it´s silent like Teststrecke or Steam at Rainbow Magicland - worth another ride!
  22. Etnaland Facebook Page presents some new photos: Seems they finish the building process... time for Testruns on "STORM" and they show us the next coaster project (a S&S Mine Train says RCDB.com): I find some rumors about an "Haunted School" Darkride by Gosetto (on "THEPARKS.it" homepage):
  23. And I´m still not sure, whether I should present the video of Steve and TPDave´s stunt show ... Thanks Divvv! I loved Vuurvogel´s TR and your TR freshes up the hype about Japan now! And,... ... you´re not late... I still work on all my videos I took, maybe I´ll post one TR of Japan next year
  24. Wow!!! Great Photos of an amazing coaster! Can´t wait to ride it in July! Thanks Hanno. So jealous...
