  1. After pretty much finishing my 2023 season I started looking for the next trip. Currently I'm thinking about a trip to America in 2024 or 2025, but having no idea what this is going to cost me I want to do it right. That said there are just to many parks in America that I really want to visit for one or more reasons. I do have some rules though, I don't want to have more then 1 inland flight during the trip, I'm planing to go for 2 or 3 weeks and I don't want to move that much. This trip will most likely take place in End of July early August of the given year. I also like to see somethings form the country, I mention this because maybe you can tell me to combine a park with a tourist attraction. Also if you have tips and tricks I'm open to hear them. So here is the list of parks I really want to visit: Cedar Point: Do I need to explain this one? A lot of coasters, and Top Thrill 2, Steel Vengeance, GateKeeper, Maverick and Millennium Force are some coasters I really like to try. Kings Dominion: This one is perhaps the weakest but still worth a mention as it has Intimidator 305. Kings Island: I really would love to get to ride the Beast. Also Coasters like Orion, Diamondback and Banshee really look good. Busch Gardens Tampa: Montu, Kumba, Iron Gwazi and Cheetah Hunt are some of the reasons, but here I also have a non coaster one in Falcon's Fury that just looks good. Busch Gardens Williamsburg: Griffon, Loch Ness Monster, Verbolten And Pantheon jump out for me. SeaWorld Orlando: Mako, Kraken, Manta and Pipeline. Disneyland: Space Mountain and Incredicoaster on the coaster side, but also I'm a huge Star Wars fan and visiting Galaxy's Edge seems like a must for me. Disney World: Expedition Everest and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train for the coaster side and Epcot's Test Track sounds extremely fun for some reason. Universal Studios Florida: Revenge of the Mummy, The Hulk and Hagrid's Magical creatures are some of the rides I want to check out but obviously VelociCoaster is enough of a reason alone. Six Flags: Great Adventure: Would love to ride Kingda Ka as it still is the world's tallest coaster (Yes I know this ends soon) that said Nitro and El Toro also jump out to me. Six Flags: Magic Mountain: Just the amount of coasters make this a must for me, but X2, Tatsu, Revolution and Full Throttle are also rides I really like to try. Keep in mind I'm not limited to this list for instance, I can combine SFMM with Disneyland and add Knott's Berry Farm to that list. So if you see a park that doesn't really link to another but can be combined with one not on the list feel free to tell me about it. Also Florida seems so obvious even for me that said, Disney World seems like a park that is very expensive and takes a large chunk of the trip with 4 parks, and Universal having another park on the way seems like its worth the wait. that said if it really is so good there I'm willing to take the bet. Curious what comes out of this.
  2. I've been curious to know how they added Toutatis to the park. I was there last summer for my first visit only to realize the ride was actually behind Trace to Hourra. So can you tell me anything about that? I have seen a picture that suggest a relocation of the queue line and you enter the area form underneath Trace, so I checked the map on the website and this seems to be the case. It's seems logical to me, because when I was there the only option I thought was a thing was a long dead end path around Trace to get there. But I haven't been able to find anything to really make me understand what they changed to open up the area. Also I am planning a return visit for this year, because I really like to try Toutatis myself. Also love to get some extra rides on OzIris. Also I cannot recall if last year was a bad as you said about Tonnerre 2 Zeus, I remember it being a bit rough and me regretting going on it backwards though.
  3. So just came home from watching: The Super Mario Bros. Movie. First impression: I really liked the movie. I do have some issues with the movie, there is a overuse of popular songs in the movie that really felt out of place with the Mario music, that said when it did use Mario music it was also really good even going as far as using songs I didn't expect them to use, most of the soundtrack has been really enhanced for the cinematic use that is why it bothered me whenever a popular song came. Although I did roll my eyes every time and laughed when it happened. Also some of the voices aren't a great fit, it isn't something that gets me out of the movie but yeah it might bother some people. The story is a bit basic but it doesn't feel like the point of the movie, it's another Mario adventure going to fight Bowser, who is just a big goof-ball and I loved that, and safe the Mushroom Kingdom. So the movie just feels like this big fun adventure. So like I said not everything landed for me but that said but I had fun and that's all I asked the movie to be, fun.
  4. Europa park has posted a onride on their streaming service Veejoy. It is the exact lay-out as reported in April last year only the triple launch is a double launch instead. It also shows a bit of the theming and I have to say I like it. Really can't wait to ride this ride.
  5. ^ I can only agree with your statement of Lego coming up with some awesome sets lately. I've been into lego for years, while most of the time I stick to Star Wars as I love it to death I have some sets outside those because they are that good, I have gotten good at restraining myself to buy everything I like but sometimes I have regrets later, like the red roller coaster that came for this one. It also something me and a college share and we even spend time outside work to enjoy this hobby. Also for those interested here are some notable sets I own: 71374 Lego NES (I like Nintendo but don't like the Mario sets). 75192 Millennium Falcon (the most expensive set to date). 75308 R2-D2. 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina. 40346 Legoland park set (Only available at a Legoland theme park). And also 10303 Loop Coaster (I may have missed the red one but I wasn't going to make that mistake twice).
  6. As someone who has been following on the sidelines, I did not expect the surf coaster to be this. I'm so confused right now, I believed stand-up coaster where a thing of the past. That said I never done a stand-up coaster and I do want to try this out, here is to hoping one day I might.
  7. Double Post but it has been months so. I wanted to give another update on the park as things had been better but are worse again. Also I have taken pictures also from the last day of Spookslot but I have a new phone and cannot link it up to my PC so a satellite image has to do. First the latest things not marked. 70th anniversary stuff has come and gone and the rebuilding of the fairy tale that was suppose to be complete in winter 2022 has already warped up. Now what is marked down, every ring I marked down is currently inaccessible for visitors as major constructions are going on there. Dark Red: This is the area blocked for the construction of the hotel, currently they are working on the foundation. l marked with pink how guest get to the main pathways what is basically going over the new dock of Aquanura. Orange crosses fairytale forest: Two fairy tales are undergoing heavy maintenance right now, Rapunzel and Little Thumbling both covered in scaffolding. Yellow: This used to house the Alice in Wonderland display for the 70th anniversary but is now taken down to make room for the winter area opening November 15th, this will see the return of the ice-skating ring for the first time in 3 years. Purple: Is for Danse Macabre, yes all of it. While the bit at Spookslot makes sense as that is the place where the ride is going to be placed, the lake will be used for a different purpose, namely to supply the site. Currently the lake has been dried up and filled with roads these roads go through the the trees what makes me think that the current gap will be placed next to the lake in the future and they close the current one. The dark yellow line is a new path to avoid having to go all the way to the bridges to avoid the construction work. The lavender line is the current queue for Fabula. Red: Save the big one for last. While not the biggest area but George and the Dragon is closed again. It has been open this year now and then sometimes only blue track sometimes only red track sometimes both. But this time they are going above and beyond. The ride will be closed until December 23th to undergo retracking work, currently pieces for track have been removed allover the ride and will be replaced with Iron wood rails, this is however temporary, as George and the Dragon will become a full on Hybrid coaster soon, when the ride reopens in December the corners on the Python side will be replaced with Titan track form GCI, with the idea that all track will be replaced in the coming years. Also Edna the dragon after 3 years will get her movement back, however no water splashing and no fire, just neck movement and Growls for now. Also for people wondering what is with the grassy area next to the Python, this is where they drop the removed track for now. Grey: This is just closed off because of everything going on behind it. Future: So we have all this going on till at least November 15th with only the Yellow area going open. Currently we have 4 other rides closing for maintenance soon: Symbolica 10 October till 21 October 2022 Villa Volta 10 October till 14 October 2022 Aquanura 16 October till 23 October 2022 And another big one: Droomvlucht: 31 October 2022 till 3 March 2023 Yes all four will overlap with the current stuff (except maybe the fairy-tales idk), and I have no idea what will happen to Flying Dutchman and Piraña November 15th as they usually close and get maintenance done during the winter months but they are not on the calendar this year, so maybe they want to compensate for other rides being closed. That was everything going on right now, lots to cover so yeah.
  8. Whiteout going into details too much, this has to be my most weirdest birthday ever, having to visit family instead of getting them over, because on one side we have a funeral upcoming. I already mis him dearly and will go see him now I still can.
  9. Goldrush Slagharen. Today, hoped over to ride this coaster as it was the only coaster in the Netherlands I felt like I had to do but still had not.
  10. An Infamous one. Goudurix after years of trying to get on this coaster after hearing how bad it was I finally did it. And then it disappointed by being not as bad as I expected, It's far form good but it only caused a slight discomfort, I have a feeling I've been on worse.
  11. So small rant warning ahead. A little over a week ago the park has announced the closing date of Spookslot, September 4th, and this has reawaken the whole discussion of closing the ride. At first I say I did enjoy hearing people asking for it to remain in the park, To see some genuine love for the ride and because we didn't know what the future held on that moment a bit of fear of what will come for it's place. The petition I really rolled my eye's on, like what did they expect kind of way. Then what I thought went a bit to far but still whatever was that heritage groups where thinking about giving the ride monument status to prevent the building being demolished. Like it's not a real castle guys, I know the ride meant a lot to the parks history, but it's a 44 year old building that slowly becomes a hazard to even be inside of (it's far from it but it's getting there slowly). But this didn't seem serious. This past week however we had 1 news article basically begging the park to reconsider and one of those heritage groups is actually trying for real to fast track the monument status on the building to prevent the destruction. Now I'm really like, come on guy's it's over just accept it. I think having a hard time accepting the news is one thing, but after six months still going so far to basically trying to turn a attraction into a monument is getting way, and I mean way too ridicules. This also would have made more sense to me if the new ride was something completely different, but we're basically getting an upgrade of the old attraction, same theme and if rumors are true same principle just interactive and old elements will return in the new ride, and these rumors seem to be very legit. Again I'm sorry bit I just cannot wrap my brain about this. Like for sure I will miss the ride when it's gone but you can go too far if you ask me.
  12. That adventure Trail looks really cool, can't wait to try it out. I also wanted to tell about my last visit around a month ago now. I stayed at the hotel for the first time for this park and it was so worth it. I don't usually sleep at the park hotels but this was something that felt like an experience and oh it was. The area looks amazing at night and to be able to watch that from close by was a treat. F.L.Y. has worked it's way as one of if not my most favorite coaster ever, I feel like each visit the ride gets better, no it's not the most intense or crazy ride but for me the whole experience counts and boy does F.L.Y. deliver on that front. I had some fears before hand, I come to the park every year at least once so a two day visit was a bit much, but at the end I really didn't care day two had only rerides because I love the park so much. I'm already thinking about doing it again next year but after seeing the plans for the rest of the year and the next one maybe 2024? Also for people that wonder what room number I had: Gate C Level 4 Room 64.
  13. I just came back from a Denmark coaster trip. Now I have over the last couple of years a lot of luck getting to ride coasters I never did, but this trip has literally the most lucky and funny moment (for me) I ever had. Polar X-plorer was broken down all Thursday except for 1 ride and I sat on that ride, and I shouldn't have. I just caught a glimpse of testing the ride and when I got there it was still closed and at the moment I turned around I saw somebody coming to open the ride and I was at the front of the queue and got my ride. When I got towards the end I saw the next train go up the hill and heard it going around when I was at the exit, I heard the special effects during the drop section and saw no train walked around the mountain and there it was stuck above and there it remained. I still find this extremely funny.
  14. ^ Saw it this morning. Honestly I cannot tell how suitable this is for children, like nothing is too adult orientated, I can only think of one joke involving 2 of the rangers that might cross the line, but that said it is a meta movie along the lines of Ready Player One and Free Guy but this time related to movies and the industries, so most younger children won't get half the jokes. So sorry cannot help you with that. That said, I do want to share some opinions about the movie, keep in mind I knew the show when it aired years ago but never was a dedicated fan. I did like it, this movie could have been a easy flop but I laughed and had a fun time, but it could have easily been called anything else then Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers. Yes the duo are the main stars but you can easily replace them. I mean the only reason it's them is because it is a Disney movie that needed a duo in the lead that hasn't seen the spotlight in a while, but I am fine with it, Chip n Dale are among Disney's most iconic characters and it has been years since I last heard of them in a new show or movie. Also with Disney owning Fox, Star Wars and Marvel, you think they wouldn't reference other movies as they did, I mean there are clear references to Nickelodeon, Warner Bros, Paramount and Universal movies and characters, and those are but a couple I saw. Take away is this movie surprised me and was fun.. I am also curious how actual fans feel about the movie because like I said, they could have easily been another duo and still work for me.
