After an awesome overnight ferry ride (as in i slept most of the time) it was time for our drive to Power Park.

 

Why? because it was the next stop on the schedule.

The long drive was a lot of fun and the park (and evening ERT were sweet as well) being so far up north was very interesting (since the sun did not set).

 

Glad i did the trip and visited this park.

 

I'm not good at telling stories.. and it's been..

 

anyway.. picture time

 

Day 12: Power Park

 

After this.. TPR Grand Prix and more Power Park fun..

time flies (yet again)

Sorry folks, i guess i've been too busy with other stuff lately.. i'll try to improve and get some more updates coming during the next couple of weeks.. (still have plenty of things i could post..)

 

anyway.. back to the Scandi trip of 2009.. (that does sound long ago.. and yes it kind of feels that way as well..)

 

Day 13 started with the TPR Grand Prix at PowerPark in Finland, after the Grand Prix there was some time left to spent in the park before another fun bus drive..

 

Enough rambling, picture time.

The ERT session on Thuderbird was, indeed, epic. I really enjoyed Power Park--it was the biggest suprise of the trip for me.

When speaking of Power Park, I always add that Thunderbird can claim to be Northernmost Roller Coaster in the World

Wonderful pictures (as always) and the post is timed perfectly with my anticipation for our upcoming UK / Europe tour

Two more days and I'm leaving on a jet plane...............

This is a pretty cool looking park. Those go-carts look amazing! In fact, I'd almost say that looks like the best thing at the park (since I'm a go-cart junkie, if you didn't know)! I'd love to to a TPR Grand-Prix on the next trip to that park that I can afford. See if a 14 year old could beat a whole bunch of grown men.

ok trying to get this report finished before heading out for the next big trip..

 

Day 14 was spent at Sarkanniemi, home to Tornado and other fun stuff.

 

This time i don't have that many pictures to show, this due to me spending most of the day trying to keep the camera gear dry.

sorry folks.

 

After this there should be one more update and then it's done..

I really, really love this park and was very bummed that it rained that day which always kind of brings a bit of a damper on your day. At least the European parks understand that rides can be operated in the rain and we didn't miss any credits!

I feel like i have to go back there some day in the future. Despite the weather i had an awesome day and yes.. rain and most european parks is not a problem

Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but do the Tornado trains glow in the dark? It would be awesome if they "recharged" in the sun all day and then glowed at night with that insane paint.

Even with the rain, I still rode Tornado four or five times--the world needs more Intamin inverts. I really liked their goofy/gory ghost train, too. Overall, it was a very good day.

 

This was my first ride on a Volare, too--this is the coaster the Spanish Inquisition would've built if they had the technology.

I do know it's late (like really late) but yeah.. i feel like i have to finish this before starting a new trip report.

 

So here we go.

 

Final Scandi trip day:

Today we visisted Linnanmaki which is smack in the middle of Helsinki.

 

I'll let the pictures do all the talking. Still love looking back at these and thinking about all the fun things that are part of a TPR trip. Looking forward to a future Scandi visit
