Thanks AussieMum!!!! The Bebes were actually right behind you in line a couple times at WCB! I caught you / your daughter's Aussie accents and it piqued my interest. Then, I kept seeing you guys all over. But, sadly, no words were exchanged.

 

The Ducky Hunt is part of a contest that Big Mike puts on. For a few years he's brought a rubber ducky to parks with him, then placed them in random photos while at the park. Then, during his Photo TR, readers would try to find how many pictures had "hidden duckies" in them. THIS YEAR, he has gone a step further and actually left the duckies behind, for us all to find. The CONTEST outline can be found in his thread, You can link to it below. Sadly, I don't think he's gone abroad at all yet this year, and not sure if OZ is part of his trip plans (He's prepping for the TPR China trip).

 

If you've read our thread, surely you've seen a "Manly" pose. The Bebes took a 2010 trip to New Zealand and had a long layover in Sydney. Here's the Manliest of Manly poses from Down Under.

You should have said Hello. As only arrived the day before WCB and didn't know anyone. You could of guided us around SFMM for a bit . I actually did not feel very welcomed that day,could have been a bit jet lagged as well.

 

However doing the backstage tours at Knotts on the Sunday got us interacting with others. Then at lunch Penny called out for the Aussie Mom(hence my Name) and Penny, Danny & Richard included us for the rest of the day. Really enjoyed that.

The Bebes were at SFMM recently and Yolo-Coaster was Up and Running!!!!!

 

OMG!!!!

 

We decided not to ride it though, since everyone aboard looked like they weren't having ANY fun at all (see pic below).

 

Also, the track up near Superman comes AWEFULLY close to pedestrians (no joking!!!).

NOBODY on this ride is having fun!!!!

The Bebes took an EPIC trip to Italy from Dec 16,2012 to Jan 11,2013.

Here is the ONE Theme Park Trip Report from our MONTH in Italy!!!

 

SUNDAY Dec 23, 2012

Italy

Rainbow Magicland

1183836846_01Termini.jpg.41d492d060d3e94ba578a20784002b16.jpg

We had checked the train schedule the day before and headed toward Roma Termini with plenty of extra time before our train to Valmontone departed

1993607334_02TheTime-trainNOTat835amAT800am.jpg.5df22e588799d6ff80606a368ca8620b.jpg

When we got there to purchase our tickets, we found that the SUNDAY scheduled train was 8am, NOT 8:35am! We now had 5 min to make our train (THIS photo was taken BEFORE we found out that the train left at 8am!!!), and the next one was at 1pm.

432013682_06Freeshuttlescheduleattrainstation-NOT.jpg.9626c004268aa414edc76963e4930dab.jpg

Our one hour train ride through the countryside was nice. We arrived at Valmontone station and waited for the FREE shuttle to Rainbow Magicland at 9:20AM.

Around 9:45am, another patron called the park to see where the shuttle was. "The first shuttle will be at 11:15am". SAY WHAT???!!!!!!

1413541540_08WalkingtoMagicland.jpg.1d669e1abb473b69ccf9e3f542160a57.jpg

We had been conversing with a local (In Italian!!!) and she said we could walk. It was only about 20min away. So we followed her, along with another Asian couple. As soon as we got on the road, our guide stopped to ask some men "how to get to Rainbow Magicland??" Uh oh. They shook their head and waved her off. UH OH!

1221416276_09WalkingtoMagicland.jpg.6995b5d0061025eb13008613d6c3fce7.jpg

She continued on and so did we, through a treacherous stretch along a highway with no sidewalk, and deciphering roundabouts. Our guide would stop and ask each person we passed where Rainbow Magicland was. OH NO!!!!

2081683721_12ONEHOURlater-WalkingtoMagicland.jpg.db2b49e1cc7e7d75601a16bb3fa6c76c.jpg

We kept following traffic signs toward Rainbow Magicland, and about an hour later, we finally made it!!!! It was 10:45am, so we still beat the first shuttle!

1104069094_15Wemadeit.jpg.dd86f25f0df5a8d6397f0474ee9ebf14.jpg

Rainbow Magicland!!! The nearest theme park to Rome and the newest in Italy (opened in 2011). We would later learn that Rainbow is a company that produces popular children's programming in Italy (they're like the Italian DISNEY), so this is sort of like Italy's version of Disneyland, complete with Rainbow characters such as Bombo, Monster Allergy, Winx, and Huntik.

1956189913_23Theentrance.JPG.4317f56806cc3c2850ec2049a9f1128a.JPG

The theming was VERY elaborate and interesting. AND, since it was the holiday season, it was all decked out for Christmas!!!!

221838674_29bVAG.JPG.25f50a275e5dac5d7557c9d7bd23c1fe.JPG

TOTALLY shaved theming!!!

2101296020_33ANOTHERthemedshop.JPG.89bf32d35a9cc6ebdab630e2c64ebe56.JPG

There seemed to be scary creatures overtaking everything, like the giant serpent on the tower.

1082500110_36LadyBebegetspecked.JPG.f58f5c3acae601086600b9e13effed96.JPG

Even Lady Bebe was attacked!!!!

1067459583_38ItaliansLOVENutella.JPG.0b431e9aa9404b30c4dc1048ed1c35ea.JPG

Italians LOVE nutella! NO, SERIOUSLY! They would serve it EVERYWHERE with EVERYTHING!

1404759541_39Bringonthecredits.jpg.53689afec62f17414e9746a191e94db3.jpg

The main courtyard with a christmas tree in the center and SHOCK, the "big" rollercoaster to the right. Shock would turn out to be a special ride for The Bebes.....

1525707820_41SHOCK-number200.JPG.c03bb90459e88b5e8d99a376f4259e38.JPG

Our 200th credit!!!!! We had skipped a few kiddie coasters on our recent Bay Area trip to make sure that this would be #200.

977462676_46SHOCKfromatoptheflyingisland.jpg.2b36589c46ad94b6c5f0b99897dc7bb0.jpg

Shock was a very fun launched coaster with a few inversions and a lot of zipping back n forth. Short. But sweet! We rode a few times in a row.

47 L'isola volante SHORT.wmv

VIDEO! L'Isola Volante (The Flying Island) was a sort of rotating observation tower. Not thrilling, but a good view of the park, the mall next door, and the Italian countryside.

2146163372_48Themedeatery.jpg.2123423de9992423bb67a61f7dfd776a.jpg

Even the eateries were heavily themed!!!

1958430294_50HungryHungryHippo.jpg.db057575d533dea8d8f3715a6f3ac7a2.jpg

Mr. Bebe was snacked on by a hungry hungry hippo

763125666_51Bombo.JPG.d3839252a480153848efef77fb842291.JPG

Next, we hit up Bombo, a small junior coaster.

260611866_54Bombophoto.JPG.6557fccde0d04c7f2b8d62f05542ffeb.JPG

They had on-ride photos. They weren't selling them, just displaying them, and everyone was snapping screenshots. When in Rome.....

55.JPG.d5b7cb4eee257bbc05dc67ef02c72135.JPG

They had this nice carousel.

467817247_57MaisonHoudini.JPG.384dedf7468d8d581471abe6eb079343.JPG

Maison Houdini - A neat rotating room effect ride. We rode one similar in Holland called Merlin's Castle. I believe SFGAdv and SFNE have a similar ride.

1238267906_58KiddieLand.JPG.e91a161f3e3ec820542780b6706a8be9.JPG

The Realm of the Small (aka Kiddie Land!!!!)

695331958_67RonnieIlRagno.JPG.2f6dc3043dc02c9245903e5f8df84fac.JPG

This spider was named Ronnie! We rode Ronnie.

1516502970_69IlBruco.JPG.a49ae5a25ad9fa5ac9a8d6f9fc6e5e60.JPG

Our third credit of the day.... Il Bruco, the kiddie coaster.

70.JPG.179a2a4805272c15d1140226da44275d.JPG

Another fantastically themed eatery. This place was more of a cafe, with gelati, dolci, cappucini, and small panini.

447256931_71Viewfromtheoppositeside.JPG.e872bcf52745c0dcb7ec764099ed67c1.JPG

A look across the lake that inhabits the center of the park. It was very cold and overcast today.

1224469450_77Cagliostro.JPG.9404397d923a9bfba01875b6e1533f80.JPG

Cagliostro. An indoor spinning wild mouse ride IN THE DARK.

Mr Bebe is a pretty pretty princess

968918292_83TheMENU.JPG.43c36eecafac8b443fde2a456ced6dc3.JPG

We chose to stop for lunch at the Domus Aurea. Not because of the authentic Italian food options.....

825430073_84TheAlternateToilet.jpg.043111796a47c1f24b3ff312bca1aa9a.jpg

.... but for the "Turkish" toilet option!!!!

193457310_85c-Food.jpg.25b7af9cae34034837313b9dde150d5a.jpg

The food was incredibly good for park food!!!

Lady Bebe joins the cast of Winx

74075935_88Huntik5D.JPG.2e01c2c83e4b907329d0daa266d72f8f.JPG

Huntik 5D, a 3d blaster ride. Lady Bebe won.

1268410549_89AwesomeHuntikTheming.JPG.85da16889eb0598779cee87d9722a32d.JPG

The AWESOME Huntik theming.

587257409_91OlandeseVolante.JPG.f1ca59f84abee923a842f127ede8390d.JPG

Our 5th and final coaster credit was Olandese Volante (Flying Dutchman). This was an ODD coaster. It wasn't particularly fun and was quite rough. The front of the train was a big heavy ship hull, which I think lead to the poor traction of the train.

978179782_93IlGatoBaleno.JPG.b60a4c5f07c3a51c2e599d975d0e8be6.JPG

Gato Baleno, the Magicland Mascot

928683407_96Bebegetsattackedbyagiantlizard.JPG.6813c16028ab93bc37abedff1c5bf225.JPG

Mr. Bebe was chased throughout the park by, what the Asians referred to as, Gozirra.

1581943923_98LadyBeberefusestoridetheRapids.JPG.8d751d1578ce1e7a31201587bcbcdbd1.JPG

There were two water rides: A large Splashdown & The Rapids. Lady Bebe would have None of THAT!

Another look across the lake from the front side of the park. Merry Christmas Rainbow Magicland!!!!

971022027_102Waitingontheshuttletogobacktothetrainstation.jpg.324fcf3e6ab7248cddc22e5a36a295e3.jpg

We hopped on the shuttle that takes us back to the train station.

1332935642_108asleeponthetrain.jpg.9927e622e705dc92b128b90a7d5a48a1.jpg

And we slept all the way back to Rome!!!!

Excellent Photo TR. Your photos make me want to go back to Rainbow Magicland, and the rest of your Italy trip seemed awesome as well.
