Photo TR: Attractiepark Slagharen & Hellendoorn


Recommended Posts

Last weekend I went on a two-day trip to the Netherlands with my family to do some family parks, the parks were great and so was the weather, and the crowds were light to. I've never before taken the time to make a TR here on TPR so this is my first one, enjoy!

 

Day one: Attractiepark Slagharen:

And to conclude day one, a nice pic of Looping Star's lift hill taken directly into the sun (originally not on purpose).

Here's a pic of Slagharen in the good old days.

See? Still a good ride though.

Wild West Adventure is an indoor boat dark-ride, with boats used in rapids rides but just no rapids.

The fast hill at the end, with a little bit floater airtime! Good ride!

The turnarounds, and the train in the loop.

The twisted first drop.

The long Main Street connecting the two seperate parts of the park.

1913894949_ElTheatro.JPG.2ebc3a4be7f9af26f04da3e6048b9611.JPG

El Theatro was actually a regular cinema playing a movie about a haunted mine, much like the one they're now building somewhere in Tennesee, only this one sucks.

774330538_SkyTower.JPG.5c81e17666f49616ca44a52203e5fabf.JPG

The Sky Tower was a good oppertunity to take some good pics, and of course i managed to not even make 1 good pic up there...

1054581375_FreeFall.JPG.cbc61f62da03b85da6e1f319ef2e7755.JPG

The Fabbri freefall (like the one at Thorpe), these thing actually launch you down to the ground to give you some awsome airtime!

609832344_RipsawFalls1.JPG.d6233092754870242e5744f382e1f22b.JPG

The little splash before the big one... how cute!

572454235_RipsawFalls2.JPG.9e3825fabbe01b08d486faab5bcb182a.JPG

The Log Flume ("Ripsaw Falls").

The "Schwarzkopf giant moon swinger ride"!

174323646_MineTrain-TreinopLift.JPG.2545e121241c8b676d5f839e081aa9cc.JPG

The ride was actually pretty nicely themed.

2133902207_MineTrain-Overview.JPG.9c69d03fb47db2058e2102876a4b3e4c.JPG

Yay! First kiddie credit of the trip!

Nice shot of some of the rides near the entrance.

1987970188_IngangFontein.JPG.ee8b15795f30a4f685cd40374c8586b2.JPG

Upon entering the park the first thing you see is this nice fountain with a horse stuck in the middle of it.

Avonturenpark Hellendoorn was a beautful little family park, and the main ride, Tornado (Vekoma Looper), was a great ride and very smooth! Personally, i liked his park just a bit more than Slagharen, especially the whole "mood" of happy families and nature all around.

 

EDIT: I uploaded a POV video of Tornado to TPR here: www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=30564

 

Anyways, on to the pics of day two: Avonturenpark Hellendoorn

This turn was the only rough spot, and that is only when you sit in the front and even then it isnt really painful.

Corkscrew with lots of hangtime!

Apparantly, this is what happens when you get to the park a half hour early.

Donderstenen is like the most random rollercoaster name I've ever heard

 

Cool report! Is it me or does Attractiepark Slagharen looks alot like a RCT park?

 

Donderstenen means Thunderstones.

 

Yeah, Attractiepark Slagharen looks a lot like an rct park.

 

Cool report, I've visited both parks a little while ago and I liked them.

^ In Belgium, most people have Dutch as a first language so they know what Donderstenen means.

 

And not only that, but in holland the word donderstenen also translates as brats. Since it's a kiddie the name Brats doesn't sound that random to me...

Nice to see those two parks again. My parents used to take me to these two parks when I was little. One year Hellndoorn, the other year Slagharen. My roller coaster addiction started on Hellendoorn's Tornado. I see that both parks have done some theming over the years, that's nice.

 

Last year I visited Slagharen for the first time in years. The park looked a little crappy to me, but I enjoyed it. I like the "Droomboot" (dreamboat). That's a huge ship which makes loopings and stops upside down. The ride makes such a nice noise, you should hear it!

 

This year I'm going to pay Hellendoorn a visit!

Nice parks, pictures and great POV, where in Holland are the 2 parks..?

 

I want to move to Holland within the next 6 years, I'll try to live 2 hours drive from Walibi World, De Eftling and Toverland. I can buy a season ticket for all 3 Parks

Central Holland, close to Zwolle, both are 1 hour east of Walibi World, Hellendoorn is not far south from Slagharen (30min. drive). For a detailed map, just type in "Hellendoorn" or "Slagharen" in a route-finder site like this one: ViaMichelin.
