  1. Flashback of the 2020 Season The 2020 season started a bit more than 2 months late on June 6th. Right on the opening day, you got to experience the new train for Cobra, built by german manufacturer Sunkid-Heege. Those new trains feature 3 2x2 cars, where the riders face each other. The front and back row are both facing forwards. The restraint consists of a lapbar with some straps over the shoulders and around your waist. My Opinion: The new train improves the ride experience a lot, but it still felly a bit rattly. I like that you cane ride Cobra now backwards and watch your friends during the ride. Winter Season 2020 Since the owners of Connyland couldn't run their famous winter circus "Zirkus Conelli", they had the idea to make a winter season in 2020, the "Weihnachtszauber". This Started in the mid of November and got stopped in beginning of December, due to new covid-regulations from the government. New Ride for 2020 delayed The new for 2020 ride by swiss manufacturer RES got delayed (before covid hit) and construction has started this winter. It is an indoor tower ride from RES, with the name Crazy Professor". I visited the park last weekend to check out the work progress. As of then, the old dolphin lagoon now completely got removed and some ground works are in progress, but no footers or anything of the new ride was visible from the parking lot. The park itself looks good from the outside. The S&S Tower fits well next to Cobra.
  2. Cobra @ Connyland The most generic coaster name after Rollercoaster.
  3. I haven't planned much at all, but few things are already for sure. Definitely: - Connyland - Europapark - Phantasialand - Efteling - Walibi Holland Probably: I have a few trips in mind to do but I'm not sure yet which ones I'll be doing. (Poland, France, Netherlands, Denmark, Australia, UAE)
  4. Thank you. Yeah wildlife is the biggest part of Kolmården for which you need a lot of time to see everything, but I didn't watch a lot at all of the animals, I was just focused on Wildfire. Yes I rode it once in the front (morning) and once in the back (late afternoon), but it still wasn't that impressive IMO.
  5. Thank you. Yes it is, especially from the lower area where the kiddie rides are, it just looks sooo massive. Thanks. Yes Sweden is a must do for all coaster enthusiasts. Nice to hear, yeah Kolmarden has a lot to offer, but I was just lacking on time, otherwise I ould have done the cable car as well. Yeah it was a great trip. And it was as well our summer vacation together and we both had a good time.
  6. August 9th: Tivoli Gröna Lund On the 8th of August we have visited the Vasa museum, located on the same Island as Gröna Lund, so we took the ferry onto the island and got a first great view of the park. After the Vasa museum we continued with some sightseeing through Stockholm and finished the day with some ice cream. On August 9th it was finally time for the last park of this tour, Tivoli Gröna Lund. This day I went alone to Gröna Lund because it got a bit too much parks for my mum the last week, so she then visited some more museums in Stockholm. But since almost all museums are on the same island as Gröna Lund, we traveled together there again by ferry. We arrived about 15mins before the park opened, so I got my admission and all-rides wristband and got in line to enter the park. When the park opened I went first to Ikaros, the new Intamin Sky Jump. A very fun ride with a breathtaking view over the bay of Stockholm and over the park. In my opinion I enjoyed Ikaros more than Falcon`s Fury at Busch Gardens Tampa, because the seats swing a lot more and the brakes are set way better, so that you fall almost into the station before you stop, unlike FF where you stop like 80ft above the station and are going down the rest very slowly. What I also want to mention is that I have ridden Ikaros A LOT this day. If I would have to guess I would say about 50 times. Why? Because it had the shortest line with 5-10mins in the day and 0 in the evening, while the other rides had around 15-45mins. Then I always could stay seated if there was a group of 7 who came, so I filled up the empty seats like a single rider. (Single rider line was closed that day) And after several times the ride ops knew me and already told me if there were 7. And the evening was just like ERT. For this I also want to say thank you to the awesome ride ops at Ikaros, they were fantastic. I also got to talk with the ride ops, when they had to stand at the entrance to check tickets and they told me that like every minute a GP asks them if this is the entrance to the blue coaster (Jetline), but as soon as they told them it is the entrance fore Ikaros and pointed at the tower, the GP was like "OMG, no, I will never ride this in my life!" I also rode the other rides, not just Ikaros, so I give a feedback to some of them: Insane: "What the hell was that" is the perfect description of this ride, or "INSANE". My first ride was compared with the others I had later nothing, but even this ride was crazy. The second ride was even crazier, as you can see in my POV below, but the most insane ride I had was in the afternoon, where I rode it together with a mother on my side, while on the other side were her two daughters (around 10 years or so), so we were hanging diagonal down on the lift, but what then happend was just sick. We were spinning like crazy just doing one flip after another on the whole trip down. And we both couldn´t stop laughing. That´s a ride I will never forget! Twister: Fun, small and twisty woodie, but I didn´t enjoyed it as much, since it had some rattle and didn´t deliver what other people have told about it. Jetline: good old Schwarzkopf classic, smooth, an inside a huge spaghetti bowl with Vilda Musen, Twister and Kvasten. My favourite part of Jetline is the twist down after the first MCBR, wich was very well done and some nice G´s afterwards in the valley. Pop-Expressen: I am a big fan of Huss Break Dance like this is one, but Pop-Expressen wasn´t really good for me. It looks very cool in this hall with the fog and the lights, but if you ride it you know what I mean. First of the lapbar, which wasn´t just your standard pole like a normal Break Dance, they added a second pole under the first one, so if you are a person with a bit more than the average waist size, your stomach gets squished! And the ride program is also very slow, compared to all the Break Dances traveling around on the funfairs. I really liked the visit at Gröna Lund and I will come back as soon as I can. I kinda felt in love with this park and was so sad when I had to leave. It really has it´s own special atmosphere, or even magic, especially when it gets dark and all the lights switch on. And now the photos and two POV´s from this day at Gröna Lund. Insane: Ikaros: And the photos: ...INSANE I tell you... ...but why the hell is there a yellow coaster in the blue coaster?... ...I need to air my head with a flat... ...some more flats to relax... ...cause that´s not the blue coaster... ...oh not again one of those towers... Approaching on the first day with the ferry ...oh and another one back there... ...and another one... ...this makes me Insane... ...and another one!... ...but I´d rather stick to this tower... But we went to the Vas museum ...and ride it all day long... ...I´m getting out of here... ...finally the entrance to the blue coaster... now we take the ferry to go to Gröna Lund ...oh no I forgot where the entrance to the blue coaster is... A tower... And the wristbands I got ...I give up, I´ll leave... And the other hand Thank you a lot for reading my Trip Report, I hope you liked it. I wish you a nice week Bye <3 And at the airport waiting to fly home. ...bye you too many towers... Bye Sweden, you were so awesome. ...until the next time you make me Insane...
  7. August 7th: Kolmården The day started early in the morning in Götheborg. After a short night we packed our stuff and went to the train station, where we took the train to go to Kolmården. I was very excited for this day since I could ride my first RMC, but also that it was on my birthday. The train departured on time, but stopped about two miles after we have left the station, because the train was broken! So we were sitting around for almost an hour until the train started moving very slowly, but it only went as far as another mile to the next station, where we had to get off and take the next train. So finally with not getting our connecting trains at the stations we had to change, we finally arrived at Kolmården at 1pm instead of 11am. And unlike the other scandinavian parks, Kolmården closes at 6pm and the rides at 5:30pm, so it was even more annoying that I had 2 hours less to spend there, but in the end I still had a great day. So after arriving we put our luggage in the locker and started by getting up the escalator. We then approached the first kids area, where I quickly got the credit and then continued right on. Since my mum also wanted to watch the animals, we split up and I headed of course directly to Wildfire. After about 10mins of quick walking a not so tall wooden coaster appeared. But after walking the path down the hill, the coaster looked taller and taller and finally you are standing in front of it's entrance and look very excited at this sign: WILDFIRE. I walked underneath it and then had to wait 4 trains for my turn. They were just running one train, which would have been fine, but the operations were slow, so it took them 15-20mins to dispatch 4 trains. One problem was that the lapbars only opened after pushing them down and you had to push quite hard to open them. And the combination of a seatbelt around the waist and a lapbar costs time as well. But now enough of the grumble, let's ride it. I could choose my row, so of course I headed directly to the back row. The ride started with a turn and then you climb up this giant lifthill. At the top you take a 270 degree turn to the right which pumps you up with maximum excitement , and then you drop. Well you get pulled down the drop and out of your seat. After the drop down over the rocks you fly up into the zero-g-stall, my new favorite element. It is so weird but awesome being upside-down, but feeling 0g! After that you continue with a wrong banked turn which I really liked as well. After rushing through a tiny and fog filled shed the ride continues with several airtime hills, some twists and turns and two rolls. In the last third the ride looses a bit of it's momentum and misses a great finale. But it is still a very good coaster and I really enjoyed riding it. After some rides I went down to the other kiddie area and got the last credit and something to eat. Then I met with my mum and we made a ride on Wildfire together and she loved the ride as well. She then continued with watching the animals and I got some more rides until the park closed. In the end I got 7 rides on Wildfire. To end the day we ate a Pizza in the town and then took the train to Stockholm, our last stop on this trip. And now the photos from this day and my POV of Wildfire: [youtu_be] [/youtu_be] And from the inside And now the other kiddie credit Yep Backrow I wish I was riding this coaster right now (no I don't mean the one with the dolphin on the frontcar) And the station from the outside And into the brakes And (afternoon) lunch with Wildfire Some facts But you can't miss Wildfire from there Ahh look at this <3 Just getting the credit, nothing more to see here Another lifthill shot from the Q This ride looks soo massive and beautiful as well Weeee Going up the lifthill We are on the lifthill.... Finally I am here I have no idea which park will be next on this trip, do you have any idea? End of this part. I am sorry it took me so long to continue with this photo TR, but this late summer/autumn has been very busy for me. But I still hope you enjoy reading this photo TR. Onride photo of my mother and me. (I'm the one with the Expedition GeForce T-shirt and the wristbands)
  8. Space Shot Tower now open Two weeks ago Connyland finally opened theis new S&S Shot'n'Drop called Space Shot Tower. I visited Connyland last Saturday and made a few photos and an offride Video. [youtu_be] [/youtu_be] New vertical Darkride to open in 2020 During the Euro Attractions Show in Amsterdam, the owner of Connyland Robert Gasser announced a new vertical darkride from the swiss manufacturer Ride Engineers Switzerland. It will cost around 2 million swiss francs and should open in the 2020 season. Source: Parkerlebnis Dino Attack Upgrade The interactive darkride Dino Attack got an upgraded electronic system, so the counting of the guns is back working. They also finished the front gate of this attraction, which now has two dinosaur animatronics. Pictures:
  9. Well it's not in the list but Pegase Express at Parc Asterix is still missing some photos, so I have a few here.
  10. After a while I continue with part 2 of this trip report: August 6th: Liseberg After arriving in Göteborg in the evening of August 5th, we took the tram from the train station to our hotel and went directly past Liseberg, in fact, our hotel was almost next to Liseberg, just on the other side of the highway. The next morning we went to the supermarket for breakfast and had a great view of the park. With a satisfied stomach we then headed for Liseberg. After getting our wristbands, we headed to the back of the park for Balder, because the park was already open for 30mins by the time we got there and the major rides in the front had some decent Q's. After about a 10-15 min wait we sat in the train. The ride was good, but nothing spectacular. Don't get me wrong, I like Balder and its great airtime, but that's it, there is just nothing else there, just the airtime, and the boring curves, it is just so repetitive. We then took the rear escalator up to Aerospin and rode it, since it was a walk-on. My Mum made a gently view flight and I, well, everyone knows Unfortunately the flip-counter wasn't working, but I'd guess around 10 flips, I still wanted my stomach to get through the other rides. We went over to Helix, but decided to do the Gyro Drop first, since the Q for Helix was around 50mins. Atmosfear looks very impressive with it's height and theming, but it's just your standard Intamin Gyro Drop. After a great Burger from MAX we went down to ride Lisebergbanen, a fun, tall, long and smooth Schwarzkopf classic. I love how it interacts with the terrain and the other rides. We continued to the back, heading for Valkyria. It was now doing a lot of test runs and there went a train over the track like every minute. But on this day it kept closed for public, since the opening was on 10th and here it was the 6th. It's sad, but the ride still looks impressive, especially the overbank. Here I made a video of a test run. By now I hadn't made Helix, so it was time to ride it. The board said 20-30mis by now, but it still was a 45min wait we later realized, but it was worth it. Probably the wrong displayed Q was due to the new seat belts, which had slowed the operations down. At least you could hear the phenomenal music from IMAscore, which sounds even better in the q-line than if you listen to it at home. And now, let's take a ride. The ride starts right out of the station into a corckscrew. After a long turn you reach the first launch, or how I like to call it: straight uphill track with constant speed. It's so weak, probably your standard everyday car accelerates better than the launches of Helix. Well, then you hit some more inversions, two camelbacks with some nice air, and you twist down into an helix. After the second straight uphill track with constant speed you get to the highest point of the ride, the inverted top hat with some good hangtime. After that comes my favorite element, the 3rd camelback with some insane airtime . After a rather pointless s-curve you get to the finale with a good Mack heartline-roll. It is a very good Mack coaster and also ranking high under my ridden coasters, but sorry, Taron is just better. After some more rides on Helix my mother went back to the hotel, since she got tired. I then made the kiddie credits, made some more rides on Balder and Lisebergbanen and finally some Helix nightrides until the park closes. While the line for Helix closed around 20mins earlier, I then made 2 more rides on Atmosfear after my last Helix ride to end the day. It was a great day, even though it was raining a little and Valkyria wasn't open, but I had my fun. On the way to the supermarket And Valkyria I see some wheels on a transfer track Well here I don't need to write which ride this is Lisebergbanen Jukebox Helix Q Hangtime And a Schwarzkopf classic Straight uphill track with constant speed Station of Valkyria Weeeeee Balder Looks good And this small and peacful looking camelback in the back delivers you some insane airtime <3 Atmosfear And some more Q. To be honest, even though the Q is mostly steel an concrete with lights, it feels good with the music from IMAscore Bye you guys, have a great ride. And here comes my train Oh and I almost forgot the kiddie credits Same And Valkyria looks so epic with it's colors in the grey clouds And so does Helix Goodnight Liseberg, I had a very pleasant day and I will come back some time in the future. End of part 2, soon I'll continue with the next park on this trip. A small hint, even though probably all know it already. It is in number of rides the smallest park, but the most anticipated one for me.
  11. Hey Guys About two weeks ago on Thursday August 2nd I started a vacation with my mom to Denmark, but mostly Sweden. It all started in Switzerland, we flew from Basel to Copenhagen with Easyjet. After the landing we went to our Hotel and then to Tivoli Copenhagen. We arrived at the Tivoli at around 6:30pm, but it was open until 11pm. I choosed to go on this day since we already had to leave the next day at 3pm by train... So we went in and first I took a ride on their old woodie with a brakeman, Rutschebanen. Man this ride is very good for it's age! Smooth, good theming, cool ride ops and some great airtime, especially in the front seat. The line for Rutschebanen was full, but it has very good operations, so it was just about 5-10mins. Next up we went on Daemonen, it is a small but good B&M floorless. But ONE thing annoyed me there a lot! The veeeeeryy long dispath times due to the VR! While all other rows were ready to dispatch, they were just starting on getting out the VR goggles for the few VR riders. But this is a problem of the VR and not of the park, but it still annoys that they need like 3-4mins per VR train while they could get a non VR train ready in 1min. Continuing the circuit I rode the kiddie coaster for the count, and this thing just makes 7 laps, oh and it has like crazy airtime in the backrow! The sun started going down and we went to eat something. I had some fried fish fillets, where you just tasted the crust, but not the fish. But one thing made it probably the best food in this trip, the fries! Man I couldn't belive that fries can be sooo good. Crunchy outside, but soft inside, and a perfect taste! With a satisfied stomach I went on riding Rutschebanen again. Then continued with the Starflyer, the powered coaster and then we wanted to ride Daemonen again, but we were too late, they closed the line at 10:15pm. So I then went quickly to Rutschebanen to get another ride on it. They then closed this line as well while I was riding it, so that every ride was closed and empty by 10:30pm. It was a short but still nice day at Tivoli Copenhagen. On Friday we made some sightseeing and then took the train at 3pm to go to sweden. We went to a friend of my mom who has a little restaurant in the woodlands of sweden. There we stayed for two nights before our journey continued on Sunday evening, where we took the train to Göteborg. Enough of talking, here are some photos I made: Flying over Germany That's my flight In the train in Switzerland from my hometown to the airport in Basel. Arrived at Tivoli Copenhagen Their under construction mondial shake Loopdeloop And a pretty small but fun zero-g-roll Especially in the sunset Daemonen, this drop was neat, first a helix and then the drop Suspended flying carpet Sweet ride And the powered coaster over a kiddie ride It is right in front of the central station The landscape in the park is just beautiful Some more Rutschebanen, and it's getting dark Starflyer And a quick shot of the powered coaster from the Starflyer Q Smørebrød (translated it means butter bread) And at Juvengard in Sweden, they had a beautiful lake there, where we went swimming. The first few days were nice, but the big things are just about to come up, so stay tuned. End of part one. Bus through the woodlands of Sweden (and yes this is around rush hour)
