Recommended Posts

Today was Queensday in Holland. This usually means lots of drunk people an busy parks. Since it also means a free day... i decided to go to Germany and check out a new coaster (and test drive my new camera)

 

As you might know by now Tripsdrill has a new woodie

 

So this morning after driving for 5 hours i arrived at the park at 10:40am. The original plan was to spend all day there.. but the evening before i kind of changed my mind...

 

but first things first.. TripsDrill pictures

Now i guess i should tell how i liked the ride..

 

Here's a short story.. looking at the video on the internet.. it looked slow and boring..

It is not crazy.. but speedy enough (you will see hair flying)

airtime?? yes.. it has.. floater like

rough?? not really.. back was very smooth and the front a bit bumpy shakey (sideways)

sound?? not what i expected from a woodie.. way too quiet (in my opinion)

 

owh yeah.. the change of plans...

 

ehm.. i realized that Holiday Park was not that far away.. home of EGF.. so...

What kind of camera did you get?

Since i'm having issues with my Nikon D50 at the moment i got myself a Nikon D80..

That way i have a backup if something breaks during the coming trips.. (lens or camera (body) itself)

 

Thanks for the comments so far

Okay question...Who made Mammut, it looks like GCI, but the 3 bench trains look Vekoma ish. The Trains are sick looking though.

 

Google helps in this case

 

The ride has been designed by the Werner Stengel bureau and was built by Cordes GmbH, the company responsible for the prefabricated track as well as general construction of Colossos, Balder, El Toro and the roller coaster under construction at Everland, Korea.

Rolling stock by Gerstlauer.

Nice report, Hanno!

 

Your pictures are gorgeous as always. I'm looking forward to riding G'Sengte Sau again, and checking out Mammut. I also need to ride the loooooooooong Zierer family thing, I missed out on that (and basically everything else) last year because I wasn't feeling well. Can't wait to get back to Holiday Park either!

 

See you in a few weeks!!

Hey Hanno!!! No boobies pics for me and the rest of "Tits a bounce" lovers??? Have you ridden the log flume??? This is not a complete review!!! For a complete test of your camera you are now forced to go back to Tripsdrill for taking more pics!!! Ahahahah...!!! ...and what's about driving a little bit more till... Gardaland here in Italy... for "another" Mammoth???

^ No logflume for me indeed.. it opened just as i left the park.. and on the otherside... i guess i value my camera too much to let it get wet

 

After driving 1100 kilometers that day.. i guess Italy is the next "challenge"

Personally I think your trip was a waste of Queensday, It's a traditional party and you should be in holland getting drunk.

I guess I made my point here. If not, it is here:

 

Very nice foto-update, love the new coaster!

 

-Yeh I'm strange
