Photo T/R: Codona's Amusement Park, Aberdeen


Recommended Posts

I was generally miserable because I was travelling all over Scotland but visiting neither M&Ds or Loudon Castle which at the time I thought were the only parks there.

 

However, whilst in an Aberdeen Tourist Information I saw a leaflet with a Pinfari coaster on the front of it. At first I thought that it must be for M&Ds but then I flipped it over to discover that there were credits just around the corner! I immediately ordered my family to scrap whatever they had planned and arrived at the park a few minutes later.

 

The park isn't anything special, in fact it's really a load of indoor attractions with a small amusement park outside but it should be said that it's by far the cleanest British seaside park I've been to.

 

If Flamingoland can be described as Vekomaland, this is surely Pinfariland (which is worse I'll let you decide) as it has it has a ZL42, a Mini Apple and a Mini Mega coaster.

 

The Mini Mega was actually pretty good and was a very powerful ride for a family coaster, particuarly in the back seat. Looping star was pretty much what I'd expected, aching ears and a headache for the next two days and the Mini Apple was like any other.

 

Anyway, on with the pictures

And to finish, the Mini Apple coaster

Once again, the UK shows its sense of political correctness

I think that this photo pretty much sums up my life

There's me really looking forward to riding my first ZL42

They tried to hide it up on the roof

Looping Star- a coaster so bad, they used Gouderix on its logo

This photo does not make sense. It says Pinfari on it and I'm smiling!

This helix was verging on forceful

This coaster has some great head-choppers

The Wimpy Burger Crazy Train!

It features Blackpool-esque blue dye water

Wow, I remember this park from a short visit several years ago, before they had the mini-golf course. I thought the place was loads of fun, especially the Looping Star. It's a crazy place though, what with the playground scenery in the log flume and the garden themed waveswinger called 'Shockwave', but it's still fun.

Man i've not been their in so long! Can only spend at max. about 2 hours their till you've done everything the complex has to offer but still a fun little place. The new mini golf looks pretty fun though

Boo to the lack of photos of the Super Fun Happy Slides!

 

Cool photos, I was pleasantly surprised by this place when Tom and I visited last September. It doesn't have much space but packs a fair bit into the space it does have and keeps up everything pretty well.

 

The Crazy Train was another pleasant surprise there too quite a fun little ride. Even the roof top Pinfari wasn't as bad as I expected it to be.

 

Tell me did all the coasters still make huge loud "clunk" sounds on the lift hills?

Yes, the coasters still clunked, particuarly the Crazy Train.

 

To be honest, Looping Star probably isn't as bad as I made it out to be. I came off it thinking that it a pretty average coaster with not much wrong with it apart from a few violent headbangs in the last few corners. It certainly wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

 

It was only later when I got a throbbing headache that I started thinking it was a bad coaster.

 

So overall, not a coaster that I would ride more than once but worth it for the credit

Cool TR!

Looks like a nice place, always thought I might visit some time, being the only park in Scotland I haven't been to.

 

Everyone seems to say how clean and tidy it is though! Good stuff!

 

Have to pick you up on something though, there is only one Pinfariland - M&Ds.
