Hello TPR-friends!

 

Here's already my next trip report! But don't expect one every week, it's only a coincidence that I visited two parks in a few weeks...

 

So we went to Bobbejaanland on a weekday. We = myself, my brother-in-law and his two kids. The kids are 4 and 6 years old so our visit included some other rides than I would normally do (more kiddie rides were I just watched them having fun).

 

The kids had a day off from school so we thougt the park would be quiet... WRONG! It was packed with Dutch families! Appearantly it was a holiday in the Netherlands. Luckily the lines were ok, only the Dreamcatcher and the Typhoon were a 30' wait.

 

Well, onto some photos! Enjoy!

Liam agrees!

Wheeeeee! This thing is good fun!

Through the trees!

1962797668_Bobbejaanland090(Small).jpg.5d83d1fd762e70bdac8cd79209512a6c.jpg

The lift hill with the cutest train ever!

1196490080_Bobbejaanland089(Small).jpg.a7bc5d5f80efc9f068beb14e3148554b.jpg

Time for another coaster, this time it's Oki Doki (a.k.a. the clown coaster)

1196835624_Bobbejaanland088(Small).jpg.59e0b16d63943d5bfc0be5dca21934f8.jpg

Someone forgot to use the spellcheck...

1671368326_Bobbejaanland087(Small).jpg.d788ae01d30ba53644a963c55ab1e699.jpg

...others are absolutely not!

1511621451_Bobbejaanland085(Small).jpg.e48d673882ed0a3cec9ebf7c0ab87085.jpg

Some scenes are really peaceful...

350176995_Bobbejaanland083(Small).jpg.ef48643c2da3b1d03721f5d359185a35.jpg

Aaaaagh...

390483341_Bobbejaanland081(Small).jpg.f2fe66f74a3a0bf666b374bd5b1cc5ef.jpg

Liam was taking it way too serious!

1197805244_Bobbejaanland080(Small).jpg.621afc2befa0bdb3bdbfb0bb2d4d4bc8.jpg

Ah, time for the El Paso Special! One of the kids favorites!

1751992875_Bobbejaanland078(Small).jpg.a6ab8ca4e299847c204d1123a0bf2f7d.jpg

Phew, it was only a blurry pic... He's still normal!

1128214498_Bobbejaanland077(Small).jpg.6470f3278263134ff235e5aa87bf95fc.jpg

OMG! The flumes transformed Liam into a small orange ball!

1223140209_Bobbejaanland073(Small).jpg.2d71c12275914fdfaedac8fc27bbcf31.jpg

Seppe is rowing with imaginary paddels...

1273508385_Bobbejaanland068(Small).jpg.658eb0479d2497ca4603b508aeff9299.jpg

The Wild Water Slide (a fancy name for log flumes...)

1649935885_Bobbejaanland067(Small).jpg.bd1c3876e4abdc14a239a588470c7e5c.jpg

Myra is dreaming while eating...

1020644082_Bobbejaanland066(Small).jpg.63504bb799ac468d65c707ae3b7d9310.jpg

Lunch time! Liams sure enjoys his fries (drowned in ketchup).

496230854_Bobbejaanland076(Small).jpg.cec2e80e9f40e3bf1d6c2d245689f7fc.jpg

Liam yelled "Wheeeeee!" right here! He's becoming a real coaster enthusiast...

134529958_Bobbejaanland075(Small).jpg.461497cea4bedb12ed85c89942bbb27c.jpg

It's a fun powered coaster, it's pretty fast and wild but Liam loved it!

516532003_Bobbejaanland069(Small).jpg.61c0f2b796dd816aab254ffcdd282116.jpg

Here's Bob Express with a log flume boat in front.

771166727_Bobbejaanland062(Small).jpg.efbd6fe5da5f4de566ed4374c873b524.jpg

Liam and I went for a ride on Bob Express and this is what the station looked like! ERT!

491307471_Bobbejaanland057(Small).jpg.674dfdfc869f10a998c1416af749553e.jpg

The monorail (with the crazy ride op)!

2023449624_Bobbejaanland056(Small).jpg.b4405a97d5adb69b85da8ad9ea895e9f.jpg

Seppe and Liam on the dino ride!

Myra and I on the dino ride!

1456285933_Bobbejaanland053(Small).jpg.8710faa717858735523dd59c9dd3353b.jpg

Some boats were still covered, that's a pretty stupid sight...

1978644781_Bobbejaanland052(Small).jpg.38b580f2c3a5348612809cc2eade1f6d.jpg

The boat ride again

1282479524_Bobbejaanland060(Small).jpg.66e788578d92ebf30de7d9094b47e683.jpg

Here she is, enjoying the ride!

1640683039_Bobbejaanland059(Small).jpg.84eeb1acc3b3143e8f43cc9d4f2776d5.jpg

Nice and quiet, perfect for Myra ( she's not that into thrills, unlike her younger brother...)

824112744_Bobbejaanland058(Small).jpg.37f8bab661cc2c5aa1edc9587e26f966.jpg

The entrance of the boat ride.

309752539_Bobbejaanland051(Small).jpg.4461448fcc6395682c74f6a2adf4d67d.jpg

Here comes the fiesta train!

333112650_Bobbejaanland050(Small).jpg.417ed3ec6f52c5eeaa8ab152f295bccc.jpg

SKLOOOOSH!

1569443192_Bobbejaanland049(Small).jpg.95c2c85f2bee47e1014e52d773802c61.jpg

Bob Express (coaster) and log flume

1939462992_Bobbejaanland044(Small).jpg.2ce9ba16299230ce422f08963b35e21f.jpg

This is Kinderland (an indoor play area for kids). It was actually really nice inside, the kids had a great time there.

1253077897_Bobbejaanland042(Small).jpg.41a2fcc101d8fba6e5b72db5741e6249.jpg

A nice fountain (I like fountains...)

906453226_Bobbejaanland041(Small).jpg.74646dcc086839e8ce118c73f472b1fa.jpg

Liam and Myra on the monorail.

We wanted to eat some cookies (as Myra demonstrates) while riding but the ride op yelled at us that it was prohibited! She coul've said it much nicer, the kids were a bit shocked...

1665908470_Bobbejaanland040(Small).jpg.a7dc9f61377503d2804b59c6802390e9.jpg

It looks cool but I can't tell if the ride itself is fun...

1091841749_Bobbejaanland039(Small).jpg.f5d97c041a3e1fc732a6b203cc7a1123.jpg

King Kong is on fire!

1432449337_Bobbejaanland038(Small).jpg.109d12df473bf4f5879a584bd795926b.jpg

A gigantic monkey holding a train car... Who invents such things?!

1687530974_Bobbejaanland037(Small).jpg.9c761f6210cd09f79d59e7301351336f.jpg

Here's the new ride: King Kong!

2072648138_Bobbejaanland034(Small).jpg.3fdf2dabdc654a7574289c97a5aa4d58.jpg

Slegdehammer, as seen from the monorail.

144006897_Bobbejaanland032(Small).jpg.b124748665e29d2a1fdd9157ba8f9004.jpg

Typhoon looks like one big mess...

1247007912_Bobbejaanland027(Small).jpg.307773003dd9493fc7d3ee998a46d495.jpg

A few seconds to enjoy the view!

1769078841_Bobbejaanland024(Small).jpg.0df80d5ce8160fb2045f96bf31b059ce.jpg

The loop with the cheap looking letters.

1805977861_Bobbejaanland023(Small).jpg.3304f581569a1a95622e04d1cc0cde03.jpg

The strange vertical lift hill. It felt like I was falling out...

824273385_Bobbejaanland022(Small).jpg.2cf7f496bd74d79e425404b18cb4f108.jpg

Ah, here's Typhoon with its beyond vertical drop...

938202568_Bobbejaanland020(Small).jpg.ea15c5fb79bab9b72497c0d0913e127a.jpg

Liam and Seppe, ready to become seasick!

1304086014_Bobbejaanland016(Small).jpg.9c8397c2ee66db6f87e7d3cc14d55258.jpg

We're flying high! We're flying right up to the sky!... (90's songs are cool)

1564149079_Bobbejaanland014(Small).jpg.800e5e8f66b7584e214b33d5911519fa.jpg

The next ride were the little planes (we had to do the rides in this order because the ride ops were working on two rides at the same time...)

1775042515_Bobbejaanland006(Small).jpg.1ca72ffdf9f4dc1ce0903facab5511b1.jpg

Myra says "Watch your speed!"

2068682003_Bobbejaanland005(Small).jpg.1e661a1a160749f40b2ffecb7d70fbef.jpg

First ride of the day: the trucks!

1420811333_Bobbejaanland004(Small).jpg.8e522701f517fe2ba201943cca82322c.jpg

The park has its own wind mill and its own beautiful clouds!

5524626_Bobbejaanland002(Small).jpg.fe8e67bbece6b2427ce8aba6b6e7d42b.jpg

Liam checks out the giant mutant tree at the entrance

1696487032_Bobbejaanland139(Small).jpg.0732437e5b8518d883c347ff871ffc81.jpg

Here's the entrance (but the pic is taken when we were leaving)

1063622326_Bobbejaanland001(Small).jpg.42206506e9fbb92416bea1350df3dc89.jpg

Looks like we're heading the right direction!

Part two!

1815900170_Bobbejaanland141(Small).jpg.c5a65e894320f28b33820a9b31f6544c.jpg

Ah, our day at the park had come to an end... Out last ride was the picknick-in-trunk ride! Bye bye!

1013597233_Bobbejaanland126(Small).jpg.adcd91d4d48096565783bd867732a8df.jpg

Or is it because of this slide? But it's defunct now! Too bad, actually...

1246343639_Bobbejaanland124(Small).jpg.94428341238408801894fb878d49c879.jpg

The whirlpool. Is it because of this gadget that the kids can't ride?

1581602918_Bobbejaanland119(Small).jpg.5496db45b6208c092a2122042f646ca3.jpg

The entrance of El Rio, the rapids.

We didn't ride, the kids were too small...

1970851072_Bobbejaanland138(Small).jpg.b8c9dba05121017ee462efc14f65a899.jpg

Liam waits for the longest train in the world!

664667215_Bobbejaanland036(Small).jpg.f747cff666720e283b2c6c182fb287a3.jpg

It's Evolution! The best indoor coaster ever!

352896977_Bobbejaanland137(Small).jpg.c24a316179c0d9a9b79f384f0132cdf1.jpg

King Kong sees something on his left, I wonder what that is...

2008581865_Bobbejaanland136(Small).jpg.d263372e912993b96865d729fd69919a.jpg

I must admit that it looks cool but I think the ride itself is nothing spectacular...

124393085_Bobbejaanland135(Small).jpg.2f4f41a47bbfff1de98f8bc073a53d13.jpg

We didn't ride it though, the kids were a bit scared...

1202278280_Bobbejaanland134(Small).jpg.68b25fb58083877d47702fb4a48b983d.jpg

Om nom nom nom nom...

585075548_Bobbejaanland133(Small).jpg.01ef518baa5aaec667adf6a4da927dae.jpg

Oh god, he's really furious!

1993241938_Bobbejaanland132(Small).jpg.e037f5846da7d837c1853096d90da54a.jpg

Here's King Kong "agin" :)

1302070847_Bobbejaanland131(Small).jpg.4f21e4a807f8db568cea2e2eb824b1e7.jpg

Something's missing here...

1049515083_Bobbejaanland130(Small).jpg.59e4d084fab030f774132e0b41569793.jpg

Wheeee! I'm having fun! Alone...

241659514_Bobbejaanland129(Small).jpg.39ace27e7170e9576241011566e51689.jpg

Look out below!

1420623868_Bobbejaanland128(Small).jpg.d00eb00e3b1ebabf9b6e0fe05588ccac.jpg

Bump!

1417552746_Bobbejaanland125(Small).jpg.c30d5e35757aca5ea656010d1fb943e9.jpg

Here comes a sharp turn!

1320359801_Bobbejaanland122(Small).jpg.3eb7278d7e58b8cfee1e1a5e77302f6b.jpg

Speedy Bob's lift hill

2102280939_Bobbejaanland120(Small).jpg.0e9534f5d1bba38fed81a744d92a3c77.jpg

I have no friends... (actually Liam and Seppe rode it while I was with Myra and then I rode alone)

1614349825_Bobbejaanland118(Small).jpg.9acd71120a2f0f2a74087cb4f3e8a3d2.jpg

The Speedy Bob coaster!

166131197_Bobbejaanland117(Small).jpg.a691caf3d9f2f71f12800ce6fa83171b.jpg

Peek-a-boo!

This creep is the entrance of a ride...

686392517_Bobbejaanland115(Small).jpg.9ef2c8a1dd88818c668a0cf6ac752200.jpg

Myra on her own horsie (she was so proud that she got to ride it alone)

880932549_Bobbejaanland109(Small).jpg.309049c474d27b8c9c76a9b4daaa73d9.jpg

Not for Myra though, her legs were to short...

1585801210_Bobbejaanland111(Small).jpg.79e831ae905ed8ce44500a992a572b07.jpg

The Horse Pedalo ride is amusing yet also tiring...

1505847249_Bobbejaanland108(Small).jpg.e04f1a605e5f80ae3d9446c16b4c4d64.jpg

The Aztek Express was pretty fast and wild, especially when it goes backwards!

1312971517_Bobbejaanland107(Small).jpg.310248f91158aae4605c9d8d7d227c68.jpg

Nice turns!

1667567620_Bobbejaanland106(Small).jpg.a0782915f033264975434610a856c53a.jpg

Please remove the OTSR restraints... They're unnecessary and painful!

1597279481_Bobbejaanland105(Small).jpg.2a8223539b8fa46f414c5bc08106ffb0.jpg

The train climbs the slow lift hill

Dreamcatcher theming

879497329_Bobbejaanland098(Small).jpg.357b01cfdfec5dfcbce3b7ce218baf28.jpg

I like the contrast in this pic...

1754816270_Bobbejaanland097(Small).jpg.949eda72ac7531b8c63b799bf741e48f.jpg

At this point, everyone can smile again. Or should I write "agin"?!

1028746481_Bobbejaanland095(Small).jpg.123eac36a8e5c7d07fa9310f04186631.jpg

It's a Vekoma suspended and it's horrible...

558436296_Bobbejaanland043(Small).jpg.f676db8cb3e275aeae27879fe8af3951.jpg

Time to ride the Dreamcatcher!

Great TR!

Even if i've seen the King kong ride before, still it's so pointless yet awesome because of it. It looked like you all had fun which is always nice!

This is a bit weird, but Bobbejaanland looks better everytime I see a new update of it, dunno why really, lol.

 

Also, I'm going to Antwerpen and Brussels after 9 days, mght hopefully visit the park or Walibi Belgium (haven't decided which one yet).

^Definitely choose Bobbejaanland over Walibi Belgium!

 

As for the King Kong ride, it's such a bad idea. It's like the stupid Stitch ride at Magic Kingdom. Tame, and supposed to appeal to kids and families, but it terrifies children!

How does the whirlpool work? It looks like the raft's going to go down the drop towards the middle of it, does it go underneath the rest of the whirlpool there?

 

As for the "slide", was it working for long at all? This page seems to suggest that it "hadn't opened yet" in 2001, so was the bypass track built from the start? They can't have had much faith in the slide if that's the case!

Awesome Trip report, By the way, Didn't Speedy Bob used to have another wild mouse that ran next to it? so they duelled pretty much?

 

Yes, but it has been relocated to Parque de Attracctiones in Madrid if I'm not mistaken.

 

Again great TR Beeja.

I rode the El Rio rapids a few times when the lift and slide were still being used.

It's been a long while ago, but i can still remember that the round lift where the rapids go on, were very slow, and the capacity of the ride was not that high...

But it was very cool to go on the lift, and go up slowly, to come at the top, and you would never know which person would get totally wet when sliding of that bog slide...

Too bad they don't use it anymore, but i still like this rapid ride... However, the best one is the one in Phantasialand in Germany

^ You just have to ride the lift and slide on the rapids at Legoland Billund instead

 

Can't wait to go to Bobbejaanland next weekend, and all your great images just made the wait worse...

 

I'm fairly sure Phantasialand's "River Quest" utilizes a similar Hafema ride system and still has its full sized drop intact.

That is correct. I saw it myself at Parque de Atracciones last week. The cars still say "Bobejaanland" on them, too. (They'll probably address that before the ride opens to the public, though.)
