End of October, together with some 23 colleagues from work, we joined to run the Ekiden Marathon in Brussels. It's a teammarathon. Each team holds 6 runners. The first runner runs 5 kms, the 2nd one 10 kms, the 3rd 5 kms again, the 4th 10 kms, the 5th 5kms and the 6th runner runs 7.2 kms. Together each team runs the marathon distance.

3 weeks after the U2 concert, I was at the same place again.

It was a great edition and a very nice afternoon with colleagues. We all got a medal and all of our teams finished within the same 3 minutes at approx 3h50''. Already looking forward to next year's edition.

October 31, 2010, I didn't spend Halloween at the themepark this year.

In stead we went to an indoor festival called Sinner's Day. Punk and new wave heroes gather together to relive the late 70s-early 80s.

135063954_DSC01102(Medium).JPG.853386a70ac0ac86bd26a428231e3418.JPG

The place to be was right next door to Plopsa Indoor.

Unfortunately it's only 1/4 the original band, the singer is a weird dreadlock goth, but still it was one of the best concerts I've ever seen.

Not only on coasters this is my favorite row.

I've never been a big fan of Echo, but the concert really kicked ass.

Happy Halloween !!!

 

Ok ok, wrong time of the year but I've been tied up quite a bit lately so 2 months after we went to Walibi Belgium for their Halloween event, here is the report.

1227656378_DSC01442(Medium).JPG.c6a3cfd014de54cb4cda422016815e25.JPG

Not Six Flags but Walibi flags.

Great coasters ;-(

1060289669_DSC01444(Medium).JPG.55d042cf15ba88aa814dae8af2758c0b.JPG

There isn't that much to do at WB to be honest, so we arrived only by 5 pm. Parking lot was quite full.

Halloween show. We didn't bother to watch it. All shows I've ever seen at WB were really awful so no doubt this show wasn't much either.

1432473026_DSC01475(Medium).JPG.4c1eb8e19614fa9571a3e5f28f58b9fe.JPG

Best ride in the park

1799922205_DSC01476(Medium).JPG.22065f9a27fbf37b78a8fda814287b82.JPG

With our R.I.P. passes we were allowed to ride 3 attractions with no wait. And the mazes of course.

Time for our first maze .... we thought. Much to our surprise the scare zones and 2 of the 4 mazes were already closed !!!!

909211631_DSC01489(Medium).JPG.398df176199de53227ae643a31e77853.JPG

So we moved on the mazes which should still be open.

It's a nice maze but the could have done so much more with it.

1644510391_DSC01493(Medium).JPG.a302d48678f8a5d3e5c243c19a5fc059.JPG

I think we came across 2 or 3 scareactors at the most.

It's quite a long maze though.

1907259606_DSC01506(Medium).JPG.eba3b9bb9ccfa3d3d7454d9b4aa4445f.JPG

But they really could do a LOT more with it.

762192621_DSC01466(Medium).JPG.adc3370592b4755292d7df399b918508.JPG

Second maze : Zoo Terror

Zoo Terror is in the Turbine/Sirocco building

234232105_DSC01513(Medium).JPG.a5f0b2326ef0f94911f04e2f2374f774.JPG

The concept of Zoo Terror is quite unique I must say. Some 100 visitors enter the building where there are cages with 'animals' in it. Then hell brakes loose and the animals exit the cages to scare the visitors. Great concept but in stead of animals they should have used real halloween scare actors. Now it was a little bit pathetic to see an actor in a monkeycostume (which they probably used once in a show) try to scare the visitors. To give you a better idea of the concept, see the short video in the next post.

I expected Halloween at Walibi Belgium a lot worse but according to your pictures they did quite an ok job. Of course it's not the same level as Walibi World and Moviepark Germany but I guess you can have a great time at this Halloween event.

I started running 3 years ago. It's very addictive and excellent to keep control over my weight. My favourite runs are when weather is not really run friendly : hot in the summer, rainy in spring and fall or snow in winter.

End last year we had a lot of snow out here and on X-mas day 2010 I took my camera with me.

2049489273_DSC01588(Medium).JPG.5f244ee3b6305d169d264b3e9b65eda1.JPG

My running gear. The technical running clothes are really amazing. Even if it's freezing like hell, 2 thin layers of technical running gear are sufficient.

1705486616_DSC01589(Medium).JPG.156f2160503cffcf822131657ab80a91.JPG

It's not really cheap. I estimate the clothes you see on these pics to have costed about 1000 euro

1858932579_DSC01596(Medium).JPG.5e19ae6ae261aa669abcd6bb54ad4109.JPG

Me fully equipped and ready to run. I'm always running with my Ipod with a Nike+ connection.

1954416963_DSC01587(Medium).JPG.07250262b62773b6a5678095952a0b24.JPG

This makes my Ipod connect to the sensor in my running shoe.

669875106_DSC01597(Medium).JPG.e96a16498713fd308eb0d914d2bc6bc2.JPG

1 km from where I live, there is a huge park. Excellent place to run.

I totally love running in the snow.

It's feels to great to be completely alone at a place like this.

My 2011 themepark season is going to start soon. And beware, the plan is to visit between 30 & 40 parks this years

 

In the meanwhile, here some pics of our annual company party I organised with some colleagues.

The location this year was actually on the water, although we didn't really sail out.

Because of the location on the water, we thought a Captain's dinner party would be a nice theme of the evening, so we rented our suits and a photographer and we welcomed everybody arriving on 'our' ship that evening.

You look really good Benny. All that running was to get you into this suit?

 

Just kidding, are we obliged to wear something similar in September, because then I have to start running too

It's been a while since my last update. I still didn't make it to any themepark this year, but in stead, I have an update about a giant container vessel I have been on a few days ago. I'm shipping containers as a job, so I was invited for a reception on board of the maiden voyage of M/S Zim Antwerp. It's a 10000 TEU vessel, approx 48 meters wide, 350 meters long, 100000 horsepowers engine, ... well it's huge.

That's it. Hope you liked the pics. Next week I'm normally visiting an even bigger vessel.

Nice. Are you still working for K&N? I work for Panalpina now. It's nice to get up an close to what our jobs are about, rather than sitting at a desk.

Yes, still working for K+N.

 

Actually being on board of such a vessel, is indeed much nicer than sitting at my desk.

 

In a few days, if everything goes as planned, I'll be visiting one of the UASC 13000 TEU vessels.

Normally I would have been at this very moment on the 13000 teu vessel but it got delayed on its way to Zeebruges till the weekend so no reception on a vessel today for me.

 

In stead some more pictures of the Zim Antwerp vessel (from the Zim Belgium fb page)

Yesterday evening, Hans & me had tickets for the Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg show. Although the weather wasn't too promissing, we decided to hit 2 small nearby themeparks during the day.

First, we went to Billybird Park Hemelrijk, for me the first themepark of 2011.

1.jpg.57ec6bd0d08422ee71969fed1b50755d.jpg

Huge park entrance

2.jpg.f7ad7839ca242478587373032d76e94a.jpg

There is a lot of water in the park. In the back you already can see the reason why we visited this park.

Due to the high winds, the coaster was still running test laps

19.jpg.28a271adbbd5c96620d2d75a3ec46fd4.jpg

Too bad the wind only got stronger and the coaster didn't open.

21.jpg.878431121b0e91d59b7bc56e8d3b1a8a.jpg

The station to get in is at the top of that tower.

The station to get out of the coaster.

27.jpg.bc6d81e61b7365ce3a83b2bf9e0c8700.jpg

We decided to wait some longer for the weather to improve.

28.jpg.7da71abae2c5737660832e9ef2dc4df7.jpg

And took some more random pictures

29.jpg.3ee873dd33a15fd6e98728f9087ae27a.jpg

32.jpg.0e1b534465964e943a8fb1d089d305ab.jpg

We decided to go and check with the operator for the chances the coaster would still open.

33.jpg.7162c072a65a0f4a0d3c91084168b3da.jpg

Unfortunately not much chance so we decided to leave for the next park.

Ending with the parkmap

Oh yeah, maybe I forgot to mention the most important thing about this themepark. At the topleft on the parkmap you see 'naaktstrand' mentioned. 'Naaktstrand' means 'nude beach' ..... this must be the only themepark in the world having a nude beach in the park
