Last week, it was time for our long planned Germany mini trip.

 

Together with Hans (who will also post his report and pictures in this thread), my brother-in-law Filip, and my schoolfriend Michael, we planned to visit 6 parks in 4 days. First thing we told the non-TPR members in the car is something we learned from R&E on the WCT : 'Don't be late. The car will leave at the agreed time. We will not count heads.' And it worked. We always left with everybody in the car on time

 

As Ring-Racer is obviously exploding in stead of riding, we skipped the Nurburgring park and stayed and extra afternoon at Europapark.

 

What will be in this TR :

1. Klotten

2. Holidaypark

3. Tripsdrill

4. Europapark

5. 'Baby makes her blue jeans talk' poll (you'll see)

6. Aventure Parc (Fantasticable).

 

Let's start with the pictures of Klotten.

40 minutes after entering the park, we were already on our way to the next park.

Although this part was awesome too.

My favorite part of the ride.

Since there was nobody else near the coaster, we even got ERT on the coaster. We rode it 4 times in a row.

1825474658_DSC06998(Medium).JPG.d32c58c49c83703dd5d452a53138474e.JPG

I'm glad we included this park in our schedule because it's a very nice coaster.

1139663458_DSC06997(Medium).JPG.accf8b2db3c8f2b984c14e73faea1a72.JPG

The real reason why we visited this park.

Flying boat

Hans' turn. It's so weird that there isn't a ride-op.

1025346275_DSC06994(Medium).JPG.359436458b83a8f9f010b436ec6eb78c.JPG

We only felt safe once we were out of the water.

76568652_DSC06993(Medium).JPG.ed8de0146bd87449496aa83c560c3b04.JPG

It's such a crazy ride.

Going up

895330645_DSC06991(Medium).JPG.6823ad9a46fc2607fb4762092323bf62.JPG

I felt much more unsafe than on any rollercoaster I rode so far.

First ride of the day : the amazing flying boat.

After a lot (and I mean a LOT) of roadworks on the German autobahn, we arrived at our first stop at about 11 am : Klotten

Day 1 part 1: Wild und Freizeitpark Klotten.

 

This a kids friendly park with a lot of rides for the smaller kids.

 

The coaster in the park is great though and it was the only reason we visited this park and for the boat jump thingy of course.

 

Like Benny mentioned we only stayed for 40 minutes cause the park was just dead but we didn't care cause there was a much better coaster to ride that day.

 

picture time...

There you go Benny hold on tight.

The park is situated on a mountain near the Mosel river.

Is it me, or did I just read two different versions of the same trip? Either way, that coaster looks super fun and I really wish I get the chance to go one one (of that style) at some point in my life. Thanks for posting!

It's time to post my part of Holidaypark.

 

Expedition Geforce was running great almost the same as last year except for the bunnyhops which were ruined by the first trimbrake nevertheless it's still my number 1 steel coaster.

No that's not true. There are some rapids in europe that are very wet but nothing like the rapids in SFMM.

In fact in Germany everything is made out of kurbis.

Kurbis sheep.

They don't only got the best steel coaster they also got the worst.

"It almost looks like a themeparkreview ERT session."

 

Now, that`s EXACTLY what I thought...It`s so great to see, that the germans finally learned how to ride a rollercoaster. Everyone of those was watching Robb on TV at least once I guess...

I wanted to ride this. But as they were only running 1 side, the waiting looked like taking forever. So we skipped it.

Great idea. However they should have put in somewhere in the middle of the ride with some smoke and fire and explosions and chainsaws and naked women and ... Sorry about that ;-)

261190328_DSC07075(Medium).JPG.ae83d45d267dd33f2ad9e695428931ae.JPG

So in stead of riding the coasters over and over, we decided to first do the 3 coasters and then see what others rides we would do before leaving for Europapark.

592225316_DSC07074(Medium).JPG.1cad6cb68bbdf44953ba04ab64fcb33d.JPG

We arrived well in time before parkopening and to our surprise the parkinglot was already filled for about half. We expected heavy crowds in Europapark because of the fact that in this area, schools were still closed for summerholidays, but we didn't exprect large crowds at Tripsdrill for some reason.

Day 2: Tripsdrill

 

This was my first visit to Tripsdrill and I was amazed by how the park looked like.

 

The landscaping was beautiful and it has that nice german atmosphere.

 

Due to the fact that the schools hasn't started yet in this part of Germany and the very warm weather it was way too crowded.

 

Anyway nice park and worth a visit again in the future.

 

Pictures....

Klotten is a nice little park, they wanted to build a log flume in and around the coaster and the plans looked really cool, but it was depending if the coaster was really successful or not, and it sounds like that hasnt been the plan which is a shame, the struture around the drop was to be a volcano, and the main drop was to come out of it, such a shame its not going to go ahead.

Tripsdrill is also a lovely park, I was really suprised by the place when I visited, lovely themeing, good rides, such a nice park to chill out at, The Log Ride was very good for the indoor scene, and the ladies toilets are good too he he, lol

Day 2, part 2 : Europark.

 

I obviously took lots of pictures at Europark so there will be 4 updates in total for Europark. From me that is, Hans will add his pics aswell to this thread as you know by now.

 

My updates will be :

1. Afternoon visit day 2 with focus on Blue Fire

2. Evening/morning at the hotels

3. Day 3 visit with pics of most of the rides

4. 'Baby makes here blue jeans talk' poll.

1893903343_DSC07211(Medium).JPG.7a93fe75f51e40d9125a9e9ef6523c9c.JPG

Europark is SO awesome. It's really one of my favorite parks in the world. Anecdote : my boss at work, knowing that I'm frequently visiting themeparks, asked me in the beginning of the year where he should go to with his wife and 11 year old daughter. I recommended him Europapark and I so scored points ;-). They totally loved it and wondered why almost nobody here in Belgium knows this awesome themepark. Next update : Europapark Hotels. The most awesome hotels in the world IMO.

Well, we only saved about 10 minutes by using the single riders line, while it could have been 60 minutes. But the ride on Blue Fire was really, really awesome. It's such a nice coaster and ride. I would really be very surprised if Mack doesn't sell a bunch of it in the coming years.

557007889_DSC07207(Medium).JPG.a8db82f6ffbb92a4152d3f2301a73b42.JPG

Almost there. After 45 to 50 minutes waiting, there was a single riders line. Why, and I mean WHY, isn't that line right at the entrance of the waiting row ????

When you don't put your hands up during the ride, your heartbeat is measured constantly during the ride and shown on a display in front of you. Mine was about 70 before the launch and about 80 after the ride. No idea what is was during the ride, so you know where my hands were ;-)

Piraten in Bavaria. Is it just me, or did they shorten the ride ? Also, there was a kind of Blue Lagoon/Bayou restaurant at the end of the ride now. Or my memory is letting me down, or it is new and the ride got shortened.

Day 2 late afternoon + Day 3: Europapark - Rust - Germany.

 

What can I say about Europapark. It's great, amazing and indeed better themed than Disney.

 

For you out there who've never been to Europapark before just go on next years TPR's europe trip and be amazed.

 

I'll cut it in a few parts.

 

Pictures...

Thank you both for sharing...and looking forward to the rest of your reviews.

Did I get it right that you rode S.S. somewhere in the middle ? Why (as the front or last row is much better on that ride...) ?

Day 2/3 : the Europapark hotels

Bar Mille Miglia. If only we knew how awesome that bar is. We wouldn't have been to the Castillo bar the night before. I didn't have my camera with me when we went to this bar, but I can tell you, it was an amazing night.

After dinner we went to have a drink at the Castillo bar. This bar is quite small but nice. And a lovely, dutch bartendress was serving us. But we didn't stay up very late as the next morning some hotel ERT was waiting for us.

The buffet restaurants in the Europapark hotels must be the best themepark value for money dinners in the world. Food is excellent and the price is only 25 euro per adult.

1259066669_DSC07218(Medium).JPG.b0081e8288e4224b6273662be6ac65e9.JPG

Filip usually drinks beer. So as we were drinking wine during dinner, he by mistake lifted up the carafe a few times in stead of the glass. Well, I admit, I did it too. And I hardly drink beer.

When I went into Mille Miglia for the first time, all the doors (to the balconys) were open, a warm breeze floated through the bar (sorry for the bad english) and I really couldn`t imagine a better place to take a beer in the evening...just one of these few moments when you think : I really don`t wannbe anywhere else in the world but here at this moment...

Small Blue Fire note:

 

Some say it's better than the Expedition Geforce. I'll just say that it's a great coaster and very different than the Geforce so in my opinion they are incomparable.

 

Let's just hope this model will pop out in many parks around the world.

Nice report...I LOVED Europa Park! Wish we would have had more time there, but I was ecstatic that we even got there during our trip to Germany! Quite a long drive from Munich...

 

Look for my photo TR soon!
