I wish I was you.

And that's just 2009?

Damn you.

Heck, I wish I was you! I don't particularly want to face puberty for a second time, but your potential credit count is so much higher. I'll probably have to stop riding in 30 years, but you'll get to ride all of the coasters built after 2040 that I'll never see!

Great Photos,

 

But the Phantasialand Photo is not from 2009

 

I'm not getting the smiley...Do I know the poster? Yes, it is 2009. We moved to Holland on January 2, 2009, and a couple of weeks later, the great Leon S. of TPR Tokyo Trip 2008 picked us up at Breda Station and drove us to Bruhl, home of Phantasialand!

Gardaland... Firstly, where is that located? More importantly, I have a roller coaster book from, eh, 2008. It mentions the idea of a screaming squirrel prototype. I'm assuming the coaster shown in the picture is the final product of the screaming squirrel? Like a wild mouse that flips you upside down.

Gardaland is in Castelnuovo del Garda in northern Italy, right here on a Google map, approximately equidistant from Milano and Bologna. We flew into Bologna so that we could go from Mirabilandia (in Ravenna) to catch our return flight.

 

Yes, that was the Screaming Squirrel prototype, named Sequoia Adventure, and if you look at the Flamingo Land picture, that is the current generation of that coaster, Mumbo Jumbo, which is S&S Power's El Loco model. Indiana Beach has one called Steel Hawg.

 

Unfortunately, both types are lacking, IMHO. The Screaming Squirrel was braked so much that you're spending a lot of time hanging upside down. Quite slow. The new version has some of the same problems: a bit too slow and upside-down hang time embeds the restraints into your shoulders. But it is a nifty ride nonetheless, just not my cup of tea. Sequoia Adventure is definitely nice to look at, with every round support painted to look like a giant California redwood.

 

Incidentally, there's a fantastic review of Mumbo Jumbo in First Drop Magazine.

Happy Holidays, everyone!

 

It's that time of year: Every park that we hit in 2010...71(!) parks...one photo per park, and excluding Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels, Texas, as it's exclusively a water park.

 

Overall, I think the quality of the photography is lacking this year, maybe just because we went to too many damn parks.

 

Notable this year that two of the parks we visited no longer exist, although one was really just an FEC.

 

Anyway, thanks for checking it out.

 

(Just added a forgotten park at the end!)

Nice Martin - now just waiting for another Photo TR to read your opinions about Wiener Prater.

 

I could have sworn that I did a Wiener Prater report but I can't find it so I guess I didn't! Prater was okay...we loved the scenic railway and the nature park and the atmosphere and the food. But the park is definitely run down. The Zamperla flying was down because of the accident but we couldn't find any physical evidence of the accident even though 3 people were injured. I'm having deja vu because I thought I wrote about all this already.

 

Anyway, thanks for looking Larry. This 69 photo thing took a long time.

First, thank you so much for checking out the report. Last year's got so many looks so I was hoping for similar results this year. Oh well. But thanks for showing the love.

 

Second, that's a good question about which parks were new...almost all of them except the Texas parks, USH, and every park on Middle America was new except for Holiday World.

 

DAMN I forgot a park! I feel so stupid but now I realize that I forgot Efteling because I didn't see a photo in the 2010 collection. Gotta look...thanks guys!

2011 Edition. We're still going to hit one more park in 2011, Xetulul in Guatemala, but not until next Friday and I thought it better to post sooner. I'll add the Xetulul photo later.

 

Thanks to Cheryl for providing photos from our mini-Scandi trip. My laptop zapped my memory card (has this ever happened to others?) and my photos were lost. Cheryl was very good at taking pictures of the signs for every credit.

You cannot comprehend how jealous I am of you and this epic list of parks... wow.

 

Thanks very much for checking out our report. It was a fun year, and we still have one park in Guatemala to do this year.

 

Just fyi, our first international theme park trip was the 2008 TPR Seoul-Tokyo trip, which was amazing.
