  1. Photo dump from Tripsdrill (with metting with the TPR Europe Trip) in June 2022! As promised, here are some random photos of our Tripsdrill trip. We slept in their Cottage Cars, had one (rainy) day in the animal park and two days in the park where we also met with the TPR Europe Trip. Cottage: Animal Park: Amusement Park:
  2. Thanks everyone for every reaction and every word. We appreciate it very much! 13 hours until Gothenburg - we'll hear from each other!
  3. Dear followers, we had a rough patch in our lives since our last post. At first, we bought a house which was pretty cool, but cost us a lot of time that was missing for going to parks and also a lot of money to do the same. We only had one really cool trip to Tripsdrill in June 2022 where we were able to meet a lot of you folks during your TPR tour. We weren't able to post a report yet, but I will post some photos in the next post. Secondly we've lost my father early in 2023. Due to these circumstances, going to parks wasn't our top priority in the last year. As a result, we also weren't in the mood to be participating a lot over here on the forums. I'm sorry for that. Espacially for not keeping in touch with the awesome girls and guys we learned to know last June. But it was very sad feeling for us to talk about the things we do not have a serious possibility to participate in. But right now today, that changed. After reading the news over the parks annoucing their 2024 hotnesses, our interest in theme parks came back! Today, we made the decision that the grieving period is over and we need to focus on our mental health - and a very important point for us is travelling. So we just booked a ten day trip to Gothenburg where we will sleep in Lisebergs all new Grand Curiosa Hotel! And this time, a trip report is coming for sure!
  4. I know by reading here that is breaks down quite often. But I also have to second John: All four days we spent at CP, the downtime was close to nonexistent. If it had oopsies, they maybe lasted some minutes. On our third day, it was down for about half an hour close to park close. But they repaired it and let the about 50 people in line ride it way after park closure. So yes, it was down, but it didn't affect the total riders of that day much.
  5. The park reopened today without the Alpenexpress/log flume attractions.
  6. Just wanted to post a quick thank you for ayur updates! Such a great trip you had!
  7. Yesterday ran a very popular German tv show called "Wetten, dass ..." (I bet, I will ...) where the participants bet curios things and the best bet wins the show. One woman balanced with her bagger on one chaine and tipped a hole in five eggs using the bucket. Two guys betted, that one can throw a mobile phone and another guys catches it. What sounds less than interesting was spiced up by the fact, that the sat on the first and last row of Silver Star which was running in the night. They hat six phones to throw and attempted it at the airtime hills during two laps. While it's something, that is completely forbidden during normal park operations, I think ist funny enough to post here. But I need to say it again: It was a stunt by professionals in a save environment! Do not attempt to do that yourself! Here is a video (you might need German VPN to watch it. It's not on Youtube yet): https://www.zdf.de/show/wetten-dass/videos/wette-achterbahn-102.html
  8. So, apparently Silver Star had an Oopsie today: https://bnn.de/mittelbaden/ortenau/rust/silverstar-im-europa-park-bleibt-stecken-fahrgaeste-zu-fuss-evakuiert (German) Got stuck on the lift hill. Evacuation lasted almost two hours. Didn't went up again. It was an chain clutch failure. (Not my informations, that's what the news said).
  9. Well, you were in Rhineland-Palatine (our home state).. It's famous for wine and beer. And you were in the wine region. I'm actually surprised this was a big one. Could have been bigger! The glass is also not called a tumbler, ist a "Dubbeschobbe". So the dimples are called "dubbe". They help to keep grip on the glass when it's wet.
  10. Thanks, Bert! It really was an amazing day for us, meeting you guys and having some ride with you! I think, you may be the winner with Paul not riding with you, since he didn't want to go high in his car But I'm sure, next time he will not be missing out on the opportunity to share a ride with you!
  11. Yes, that sounds better then the operations last year. And joining the extended front row queue on Taron is fair. You skip about an hours wait on a normal day. The front row queue should be around ten minutes. Seems reasonable. I'm glad that you had an awesome experience, Bert. Reminds me to finish my Tripsdrill report!
  12. Last time I checked, their Fast Lane option didn't let you go on the front ride. Therefore sadly a no-go for me. I hope it changed "after COVID".
  13. They don't need announcements. Just some fences, some markings and three garbage cans next to it and the fanboys will go full crazy.
  14. No. This is the predecessor for the Dorney Park "New for 2023" announcement.
  15. We were at Holiday Park yesterday. It should have been mostly a kids only trip, so don't expect a trip report. But there were some things, I want to share with you. Mostly, because I'm usually a bit critical with the operations there. The park was open until 8 pm, so after 6 pm and the kids were done, we planned on going for Sky Scream, GeForce and end our day there. Sky Scream had, on a hot summer holiday day, no line at all, so we were done with it in no more then ten minutes. On GeForce, the line emptied out the entrance because of a breakdown. As the kids were happily locked at the playgrund, the four of us went to the station anyway. As most people went home, we got a ride, two of us in the front row, two in the very back, with a four train wait. The ride itself was awesome as the sun downed behind the mountains. But the best thing for us occured after the ride: Our compaignons agreed to sit the kids for another while, as Sarah wanted to do a front row ride with me. So we waited another three trains when 8 pm passed and the line was closed. We were the second to last couple to board the front row and were already restrained when again a system error occured. We already thought, that this would be the end of our day, but the OPs pleased us to wait it out. After five minutes three technicians arrived and fixed the sensor that made the train stop a couple auf centimeters late in the station. So at 8:15 pm, we boarded our train again and had another sundown lap. And when we arrived at the staion, there were five more people to board the train and so the OPs allowed everyone to reride, as long as the waiting people got their reserved seats. So Sarah and me got out the front row and found two seats in the middle row and had the luck to be an the two last trains of the day! SO SHOUTOUT TO HOLIDAY PARK AND THE GEFORCE CREW FOR AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE AND A VERY FUNNY END OF OUR DAY YESTERDAY!
  16. Interesting. At least someone whose climax at a CP trip is (at) a ride in the ferris wheel.
  17. The longer I look at the enhancement, the better it gets. CP - for me - is a multi day experience. And an area, where I can sit down, take a beer, enjoy the day and the lake and which takes me away to boardwalk style envorinment is well appreciated. The fact, that the Wild Mouse is called Wild mouse, but is not some standard model, but CPs approach how a CP wild mouse looks, is a good try. I hope it will be as good as I imagine it. Personal note: From my last visit in 2017 (before MELT and BBQ) a food enhancement was deeply needed. Is it too much now? I don't know. But I never heard someone mutter about Europa Park having too much restaurants. An there a way more than at CP.
  18. Of course. You may ride everything without it. But count the half hours together you will be not standing in lines, but eating, strolling, reriding, enjoying the park, ... I will always recommend it everywhere where you are not a lot of times and everytime you are there for a limited amount of time.
  19. I tried being sarcastic. If you see the responses below the tweet, dozens of people think that it means Magnus is giong to go.
  20. I'm kind of disappointed,, Just read the tweets from Tony and CP about the announcement of an announcement of an announcement, followed by a kind-of-farewell-looking Magnum video. So I made a kettle of pop corn and got ready for the hype here and - NOTHING? I'm in the mix between being worried and proud of you all!
