Heide Park Photo TR

Hi everyone,

 

I visited Heide Park Soltau in Germany last sunday and it was awesome, busy but awesome.

 

I really didn't know what to expect from this park. The only thing I did know that there was some Intamin wood that needed to be ridden.

 

There were parts of the park that were themed very well and some other parts that didn't had too much love. After all I liked Heide Park very much.

 

The (main)coasters:

 

Colossos broke down early in the morning and after it opened up again it was only operating one train. Later in the afternoon they put up the second train again. Nevertheless the ride was great. Not as awesome as El Toro but it had plenty of air. The only thing that it made less enjoyable was the roughness through the turns.

 

Desert Race was operating one train the whole day. So that line was about an hour. The ride itself did disappoint a little. It was some good fun and there was some air but I found it too short or at least too short to make it a number 10. I do like the Intamin Mega or Mega lites better.That launch was pretty awesome though.

 

So enough blah blah on to the pics.

Last turn. The blue train was too shy to come out of the garage.

Desert Race station.

Wow through the station pic.

Leave you out with some more Desert Race pictures.

Why do all the germans have beer bellies?

IMG_0001_50.jpg.b9b1433187773955bec372a4925042d8.jpg

Another small weenie guy.

IMG_0001_47.jpg.570839448677902beaf7ecbdd77c46aa.jpg

For all you monorail fanboys.

IMG_0001_49.jpg.ce15e37aa00a88cd0af35c1f6cdae25d.jpg

Last turn into the station.

IMG_0001_49.jpg.63e088c178b73fb7991640b192787bff.jpg

First drop.

Kiddie credit time. Lifthill shot.

IMG_0001_45.jpg.3d9d883317bd498b84ec8f1817fd8249.jpg

We got lucky with the weather.

IMG_0001_40.jpg.d5e1bd46da7b45fdd469387a8b1f91fe.jpg

Obvious station pic.

IMG_0001_39.jpg.3de0fd23cccf49d45806b4acb56ce8ac.jpg

Yep I count powered coaster.

IMG_0001_21.jpg.6d50d80f14699885fd5878eeb449d12c.jpg

Easy decision.

Last Colossos pic.

IMG_0001_11.jpg.e1a2bdfe5a9929fd46c959751ff32032.jpg

The worst part of the ride is probably the helix.

IMG_0003.thumb.jpg.e13e35a5774142c23b1ac9c68a043a62.jpg

I don't believe that!

IMG_0001_20.thumb.jpg.e3b16dcecfc7f97517ef7d4220c36059.jpg

Yep she is huge.

IMG_0001_55.jpg.e3f37cd226b1c64a0ccb505b4cab8640.jpg

Back to some more Colossos pics.

IMG_0007.jpg.527b6f45247c746e7c0e820338f227c0.jpg

I never thought a SLC could look so damn sexy.

IMG_0001_16.jpg.93487c324d798ae056f969f5c6d933e5.jpg

Actually this part of the ride was... well smooth for a SLC.

IMG_0001_13.jpg.d43f775c2471bb04772aec9de1ffe422.jpg

Dark clouds are gathering.

IMG_0001_15.jpg.be35b6c86f71fed151ff9436a56a2fce.jpg

Couldn't get it on camera. Those rides are so damn fast. ;)

IMG_0001_14.jpg.eb6c7719e9d17ea3276b23ca4cd1fb0a.jpg

Ah another Vekoma top model.

IMG_0001_17.thumb.jpg.3cac5c066eb6285b07e62c67ea8e2977.jpg

Double loop, double corckscrew and a helix. But this one has a much smoother ride and I love the old Arrow trains.

IMG_0001_23.jpg.7b489e3aef6f7405d36473b98b6f2e44.jpg

Cause it has the same elements.

IMG_0001_22.thumb.jpg.828f00526d4d4e3a04d505a84bbcaf9f.jpg

Noted.

IMG_0001_19.thumb.jpg.070e1d70c5a007789c87cdcb0d06ecb1.jpg

The dutch GP will call this a Python clone.

IMG_0001_38.jpg.784d98c76594e7c34f545cad901b18f1.jpg

Up to Vekoma land.

Small sausage.

IMG_0004.jpg.dce76b42fa53f74b656211efc6e3ee5f.jpg

Big sausage.

IMG_0001_43.thumb.jpg.635d37a54995ff59d26ce5eaf3512a89.jpg

Mr. ALi-B N Gator wants to be in this great report too.

IMG_0001_37.jpg.8ef72d96abb647fa86cb16cc5d0c547e.jpg

There was a nice little beergarten.

OMG they are growing grass on a roof.

IMG_0001_33.jpg.d8a76708f2fdeafc69d8f0f49774a7bb.jpg

It got a great indoor part.

IMG_0001_34.jpg.19c0617c83e5bf42f50d4537358c95fa.jpg

But hey that's just my opinion.

IMG_0001_35.jpg.f3b18715adf8bafbbd80faf9fef62698.jpg

The best Bob in the world IMO.

IMG_0001_31.jpg.0ed00318a252374959441c48ffbbada2.jpg

Yeah thats much better. Look how train behaves through the helix.

IMG_0001_30.jpg.9235bcde751499385317de990b4e6a45.jpg

This picture is better with a train in it. (credit 180).

IMG_0001_27.jpg.5bc2b4c9e6b070cacf6e27bb03b9875a.jpg

The Mack Bob was great. Just like the station building.

IMG_0006.jpg.e5a05bdcea848a0bbc1543ea95f45348.jpg

See. It look liked they got it synchronised.

IMG_0001_32.jpg.44ff5372f359a8ad213b252c2a7a4d3c.jpg

The best part of the ride. You didn't get too wet from the splash but on your way back to the station you get soaked from the splash of the boat coming down.

IMG_0001_29.jpg.3ad0b40fbfdf04b1f90c5a59fa889b4e.jpg

And a owl up front.

IMG_0001_28.jpg.e58aa56f7c4874d910d465a2c39ba1da.jpg

The ride itself rocked. It had a monkey on the back.

IMG_0001_25.jpg.fbb594557665493fb8148b4feccbc9ce.jpg

The left guy reminded me of another crazy german.

IMG_0001_24.thumb.jpg.d54f8b4a00b5616d1126f5f83c1f79a0.jpg

Queue line for Wildwasserbahn II (nominated for the most original ride name ever)

IMG_0001_26.jpg.4f6281f885f837fb2d225f0299fc75cd.jpg

And the gyro drop tower Scream. Well I forget to take a picture of the ride itself.

IMG_0001_18.thumb.jpg.2b91c38c14ffc40e873de88462f700c0.jpg

And some crazy germans striking their national colors.

IMG_0001_6.thumb.jpg.6d46c236df87cf22c02c522687328e32.jpg

There are some other rides too. Like an observation tower.

IMG_0001_4.jpg.2428e01bbbaad1c1fd5a2d64cf197b73.jpg

As I mentioned that launch was pretty awesome.

IMG_0001_3.jpg.88e3d386e5b85dbda595ae6cf1298ae1.jpg

Right next door was Desert race.

IMG_0001_9.jpg.fbb7cf55de347625d392bff3f1216e8c.jpg

This was not so awesome.

IMG_0002.jpg.43053bbdb4c1730582083777c0bc8f41.jpg

See happy faces.

IMG_0001_12.jpg.d784f4ae1291fd18bd664ae2bf20f2d1.jpg

Back to the happy thoughts again. After it opened up it ran awesome.

IMG_0001_53.jpg.8523c02d19763fd17d63eb1bd4558c2f.jpg

The next thing they did was running it with emptt trains.

IMG_0001_52.jpg.6aacfdaf9fc296eabe29fa26e3540349.jpg

That train got evacuated later on.

IMG_0001_2.jpg.def62cde70547e284fb2fd0282362dfa.jpg

This was the first thing we saw that morning.

IMG_0001.thumb.jpg.1a62a8b959fd20e429d0a3cdb0112784.jpg

Safety first. So we had to check the height guide.

IMG_0001_1.jpg.9147f87e32f21d73f1287dadf41b2797.jpg

On arrival. We had to drive for four hours so we had to leave home at 6 am.

I liked Heide Park. I went in Colossus' second season, so there was no roughness at all, not even in the helix.

 

Still..... I didn't like it much.

 

The Bobsled, though. OMFG, that thing ROCKS! The indoor section took me completely by surprise and I wish I had bought the hysterical onride shot of me on that ride with the look of shock on my face. The entire ride, I just kept thinking "this is a freaking BOBSLED???? Are you kidding me???"

 

Best bobs in the world, absolutely.
