Duinrell - Wassenaar - The Netherlands


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

The last time I visited this park was in 1992 so it was a long time ago for me. I did remember a lot and not much has changed since then.

 

The obvious reason for me to go again was the new Eurofighter Falcon. It was my first ever Eurofighter and it wasn't too bad I actually liked it.

 

The setting of this park is awesome. It's located in the "seaside area", you can't see the sea but there a lot of trees and dunes.

 

There were a awful lot of schooltrips but it was manageable.

 

If you get bored during the picture part you can go count the frogs. I don't have a price for the winner but you can kill some time.

 

On to the pics....

Bye... Note the kid who obays the safety restrictions.

You can send out your kids and never seen them back again.

Lifthill. The setting is uber awesome. It runs through the dunes at insane speeds. I should come back again soon to ride it.

IMG_0001_90.thumb.jpg.c2a795c2d8b9018d1821bbcb0d2f7cdd.jpg

But they were closed today due to the weather.

A strange kiddie flatride.

IMG_0001_74.jpg.87b518402c204a2e646f0689775624cc.jpg

It's a restaurant with a carrousel inside.

IMG_0001_73.jpg.1e400849118ad27d6421d491f085e6f8.jpg

Wow.

IMG_0001_72.jpg.766af77821602c3e7ad9725ee35199a7.jpg

There's a Pancake restaurant.

IMG_0001_96.jpg.a180e9f613297c53944607cbbd87c8f9.jpg

In my memory this one was much steeper. Does anyone know if it is adjusted when the higher slides were installed?

IMG_0001_71.jpg.ec165174f8e59cc39d976aef8df827f1.jpg

Tikibad has a lot of slides.

IMG_0001_70.thumb.jpg.95ca7cd1aaa0eb4c567db30fbabd50c8.jpg

In the centre of the park is a huge water park. In Holland Duinrell is famous for it.

IMG_0001_54.thumb.jpg.8db9cb094202f0b33b51516008313a78.jpg

My niece came off soaked and wasn't too happy with that.

IMG_0001_53.jpg.aedf67298622c2210978d609f152b1de.jpg

The ride is nice to view and take a couple of pictures not to ride it.

IMG_0001_44.jpg.54450e1e7ed8204f4ae0a5670eafd3e7.jpg

Soaked.

IMG_0001_29.jpg.7ad408368db6cdf99556193081232c94.jpg

and...

IMG_0001_43.jpg.6883d03bebc9aa4b034a06149fd0e588.jpg

There it comes.

IMG_0001_42.jpg.373b0526db45334be92d4a00b920b29f.jpg

Brave kids waiting for the wave to come.

IMG_0001_39.jpg.662f1a4d3f8767fe337e1dcd3b878e8a.jpg

Luckily I stand in the safety zone.

IMG_0001_38.jpg.97b9561f13966df10d741244c1a7349c.jpg

Boat coming down.

IMG_0001_30.jpg.9521af32862c876941c13c11a1011a16.jpg

There is a bridge were you can catch the wave.

Boat coming down.

IMG_0001_40.jpg.0b9cda356ce98dc60afa186439332d50.jpg

It ended up that you got soaked on the enclosed boat and almost dry on the open boat due to this raincoat system.

Here is the open boat.

IMG_0001_35.jpg.88ca4ec8999518fbc70c892f84836e18.jpg

You can choose to ride the enclosed boat or the open one My sister + family choose to ride the enclosed boat. I chose to take some pictures instead.

The Waterspin has to share it's entrance with Splash.

IMG_0001_41.jpg.e873836b163e85e13baeea99a81c46e9.jpg

That boy got a great time.

It's my sister going nuts.

IMG_0001_68.jpg.c87a77d19dde056ff8df9cfb34627b67.jpg

What is that in the back.

IMG_0001_65.jpg.dd7488da0dc360ea29755ed03cd7f362.jpg

Almost put my camera on the track for this one.

IMG_0001_67.jpg.b5188a7aad24a6478770a2fc57c469d3.jpg

This picture made me kinda proud.

IMG_0001_62.jpg.d20e57db18c68904fe6baf3fa1ef64d5.jpg

It has a perfect setting.

Great fun for the kids who stayed on property cause the park never closed for them. Don't know if they closed this ride but I don't think so cause we were still there about an hour after closing time.

IMG_0001_131.jpg.afaae7bc65180f3ae6dbba158d553e23.jpg

Oh no don't look down.

IMG_0001_130.jpg.746871de442a1b1f833058d5319be9e3.jpg

Made it to the top.

IMG_0001_129.jpg.ed3c9b8fe3dd0d4ec5fb70117d11145a.jpg

In most cases those slides are great but these were a bit slow.

IMG_0001_128.thumb.jpg.cb98be30716b97d4ca72d45eaf10dee3.jpg

Fun slides.

IMG_0001_121.jpg.450580fa87f54c3a02311eddaac827a0.jpg

The coolest thing is that they display your speed. I managed to go 42 km/h.

IMG_0001_122.jpg.ad0f62cd15a138c55c3ae3ae16ce82a4.jpg

Swoosh.

IMG_0001_120.thumb.jpg.f0da3c6f827d7d6e698c5dccf2c9cba7.jpg

The only negative point about this ride is that you have to bring your own boat to the top.

IMG_0001_119.jpg.bd6496dae8cc92f1ab5b6df587e3130d.jpg

Concept is simple. Tower and two slides.

And let's not forget about the Katapults.

Small ships means more airtime.

Going through the Immelman Jr. Which is not an inversion IMO.

It's a great job to provide nice pictures for the Park Index.

The frog is indeed the park's mascot. Duinrell uses it a bit too much IMO. You can't look anywhere or you see that damn frog.
