Photo TR: Avonturenpark Hellendoorn, 04-06-2007


Recommended Posts

Well, kinda felt guilty for only watching other peoples movies and photo's, so I just have to give a contribution to the site as well! Here's a TR of a small familypark in the north of the Netherlands. I used to go here when I was little and the vekoma Tornado was my first roller coaster with inversions ever (back in 1990). Enjoy!

Just a little something to ease the nerves. Tomorrow we’re going to “Avonturenpark Hellendoorn” (Adventure Park Hellendoorn)!

Menghini driving. The park is located 50 miles east-north-east of Walibi World, real close to “Attractiepark Slagharen” (attraction park Slagharen). Slagharen and Hellendoorn can be done in one day.

We were the first. Forty minutes before park opening. Tha park is located in a large fores called “De Veluwe”, so lots of trees in and around the park. I like that.

The log fume. Nothing special really.

Ooh…

02-C.jpg.0d34884131e1915772be91eaee75a763.jpg

Splash!

03-A.jpg.638fc0c7f6ac114ecad191e97f113e60.jpg

What does this button do?

03-B.jpg.aa5984fae599812a9c58376ebe9b46af.jpg

It unleashes Vekoma-Tornado -Terror.

03-D.jpg.33514ddbfec2c0099aa1ae95e8331ae2.jpg

This one has two inversions, a loop and a corkscrew.

03-E.jpg.3a72ace54e0cdf31913744a1f09f0f92.jpg

It wasn’t that bad. It was not so rough, it had a nice first drop and a smooth loop. But the other credits in this park were better.

04-A.jpg.48ecaa3197c72132e515137b4939562a.jpg

Whee!

05-A.jpg.df2f447b7f951f4ff40fa1b163786fe3.jpg

Whee!

06-A.jpg.1ee25398e151d7f7839028b0c9b19a48.jpg

Haha, there are forces inside, far beyond your imagination!

07-A.jpg.49a8f4413d4d43177c1df9ec46e2873a.jpg

The oldtimer ride

07-B.jpg.ef795213b8394477d701dc10a6ec389a.jpg

Yes, we did went on the oldtimer ride.

07-C.jpg.54193dda07f3360ae6f6b208dcce0e9f.jpg

And the exhilarating – 4 inches per second – boat ride!

08-A.jpg.da1b5e790858c5e07e9ea288e038cf68.jpg

The “Rioolrat” (sewer rat) had a freaky q-line.

08-B.jpg.a16509f8593efa507dfdd9e5f1dd125a.jpg

08-C.jpg.e5f0d93f6be2620d7c4c33910383d449.jpg

“Ooh, it’s dark and freaky in here!”

08-D.jpg.d4c9b9fc0c64bcd3345c6bdcadbadb9e.jpg

This was a real nice feature. A turn outside the sewer with some mist. Inside there were some other cool features…

08-E.jpg.bd6c44be7f05508967b13a5eadf37daa.jpg

Nice vekoma junior coaster. Out of the sewer, let’s grap some chow!

09-A.jpg.977e2a5333737bfaf13c567c757aca68.jpg

“You know what they put on French fries in Holland in stead of ketchup?”

09-B.jpg.c72843c87753943fa4d36751280e8bc9.jpg

“Mayonaise!”

09-B.jpg.5e1b148ec82af3c54638e5505ae68232.jpg

“yak!”

09-D.jpg.d80d617a3885ec4e36c441878631fb4b.jpg

“I’ve seen them do it man, they fucking drown them in that shit!”

10-A.jpg.948f5090e4662a56b85f08951be1d903.jpg

Slide

11-A.jpg.d85f043a41967839b7b1f5d5e67e9a93.jpg

Of to “Donderstenen”. A very cool sounding name, at least in Dutch. For non dutch speakers it’s probably an unpronounceable at random sequence of characters.

11-B.jpg.eecdc3bb2c1cd614c0ad87fc357ffd21.jpg

A nicely themed first car.

11-C.jpg.a0af9ce4519bf1bcfc80069173ecd7ca.jpg

Donderstenen means “Thunder Stones”.

11-D.jpg.7ddf74b8de28a6453e302e55f8cde279.jpg

Quite a descent credit.

12-A.jpg.0020059bb30aab7fda3b8c99654a2f81.jpg

There was an interactive dark ride inside this mansion.

13-A.jpg.505c9abb0b35921b2c4e37374f17d3a5.jpg

“Dino Sky Pedalo”. Did I mention the cool sounding names already? It has some alliteration in it.

13-B.jpg.9744ce227923d74b2ab3c9080f8c04ea.jpg

Ooh! I want to ride the dino ride!

13-C.jpg.f581e93308024bc10c8f8f9479b6286a.jpg

This happens when you put granny in front…

13-D.jpg.b1b1e9cc867220be8afed5485a5cec7e.jpg

“Dino Sky Pedalo Pile-up!”

14-A.jpg.fdee07402455227d39855da6e88c29a9.jpg

That’s me, lost.

14-B.jpg.ecc91b2a8548e9811134e4644bbf3124.jpg

Darn! Menghini beat me to the tower!

14-C.jpg.d3ebbaeced51f889948f6e351ab62afc.jpg

Quite an extensive maze. Too bad you don't come across them more often

15-A.jpg.b229cbb4b61017764513e6eb4c29c233.jpg

Moby Dick. With bizarre looking cars. Those large eyes...

15-B.jpg.6888f5f95f2b2c398c8265e2dfc9be0d.jpg

It has wheels, it has rails, it has this tiny bit of airtime too… Credit?

17-A.jpg.4f845b12c45c9bf9950a0de3d1b338ad.jpg

“Sungai Kalimantan”. Another cool name. It’s almost poetry in this Park.

17-B.jpg.36829f4b22ecca41e6be8ed6867c6e46.jpg

The aqua duct, and yes….

17-C.jpg.3f83e9741024dec7cdcf2363413e44ff.jpg

The q-line Is that close to the rapids!

17-D.jpg.09665e2fc880f437dacdd2472723fbb6.jpg

There should have been more waves in here.

17-E.jpg.9154ef07d42f61c69f4f402f405f7bf9.jpg

But an awesome rapid ride. One of the best I’ve been on.

17-F.jpg.dc30ab310492c5e193cedd689604fd17.jpg

Too bad “Montezuma’s Revenge” (how does that sound?) was down today. The left motor needed to be replaced or something. It looked very well themed though, I would have loved to ride this one.

18-A.jpg.7f790b11322cb0ee3e4eef58bbcb107b.jpg

And to conclude the day…

18-B.jpg.13d68ff69661c33d5d88989d150664a7.jpg

The elephant ride! This brings back some fine childhood memories… Thanks for reading and watching!
