I have to say those are some awsome photos! I was at the park yesterday and I saw you in the queue for Saw! I should have said hello, but alas, I did not. I was even in one of your photos of the queue line. If I'm not mistaken, I think I also saw you in the Stealth single rider. I was right behind you. Again, I should have said hello to a fellow TPR member. Hope you had a great day!

Hanno I'm always amazed at how you capture the wheels not touching the track. I've never seen anyone else come close to capturing that, not even in published books. Amazing!!! As always thank you for sharing.

Those are some really great photos!

I someday (soon hopefully!) would like to make it to Thorpe to ride Saw because it combines my two favorite things... roller coasters and horror films!

Thanks for sharing!

I went on this a few weeks back (before the easter break for the schools), and whilst there were some technical difficulties resulting in the ride opening late, it really was worth the wait. A great addition to the park...plus it takes some of the queue from Stealth!!!

For the people that have not read/looked at every update so far.. it might look like i'm jumping from one week to another.. but yeah.. that's how it is.

 

Today i would like to present to you some more pictures from my 2 day stay at Europa Park.

 

I feel like i'm repeating myself but this place (to me) is just amazing and every hour spent there is worth the entire trip. I can't wait to go back there sometime..

 

As you've probably already seen they have opened up a new ride there called Blue Fire but i would like to give you some more pictures from this place.

 

below are the links to the previous update..

Blue Fire update 1

Blue Fire update 2

Europa Park Day 1

 

and the following is Europa Park day 2.

 

Hope you like them and feel free to comment.

Your Trip pics are really insane... so whats next!? insane????

 

When i see your photos i really want to join your trip. You really visited nearly all new coaster in Europe. Just 5 ones to do.... when will we see the pictures of Rick`s Delight, el toro, i-speed, Fluch von Novgorod and Insane.

 

And really loved to see your pictures from my Homepark "EuropaPark". Really sad that i hadn`t the time to visit it till now this year. Every time I saw your photos i realized that i can`t wait to go there, especially riding bluefire. But my time will come soon...

 

 

And about SilverStar. Have you riden it? There are many people that say that it will get better and better every year. Some say this year the trims were not recognizable and the airtime is much better than ever. The new train paintings look good by the way

Hi Kooky, happy to hear you like the pictures.

 

about the other rides in europe:

 

El toro's update is already in here link

Insane will happen during the Scandi trip

Rick delight probably as soon as it opened (middle of may)

i-speed that's in italy.. i'll have to leave that to somebody else

Fluch von Novgorod Scandi trip as well

 

and don't forget the new high speed coaster at the Nurburgring... that one is still coming sometime this summer..

 

So yeah.. a fun year so far.

 

Regarding Silverstar.. it felt like it was less shaky (rattling) compared to last year.. but it also felt slower (to me).. but that might have been me.. i guess it's one of those rides where ambient temperature has an influence on the ride..

EEeek, Hanno, you've made me so excited about finally getting to Europa Park this September!

 

A little worried that I'll only have one day to try and see as much as I can... but, we picked September for the quietness, so... here's hoping!

 

But, awesome report! I'm sure I'll read it a few times between now and when I get there!

so can`t wait till you do the next trip.... its everytime much fun. hope i can show you soon some pics of my EuropaPark trip. And forgot that i saw the pictures from el toro on this post. When i have time and the money i plan to go on one america coaster trip. And how could i forget the Nürnburg ring, just found a 3D-Rendering of the trains with the wind shields on it. (I`ll post it in the Ring coaster thread).

 

And what`s about a mini EuropeTrip like you did it the last time!? Is this not planned fpr this season!?

I remember hearing about those bumper cars when they were first announced. Don't think I've ever seen any photos before now, though. Seems like a really cool idea.

 

Awesome photos, as always.

A while back i did a quick update regarding El Toro. The new GCI at Freizeitpark Plohn (Germany) link

 

Well this park has more to offer then only a new GCI. The following will be a quick impression of the park and it's rides there.

 

It is an interesting place and for me personally well worth the trip there...
