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

 

I'll never believe that without photographic evidence.

Thanks for the comments.

Sorry, no pictures from the nude beach. I don't think anyone was there either because the weather wasn't like summer should be.

 

The park is indeed not in Belgium but in the north of the Netherlands, close to Eindhoven.

 

The coaster must be custom designed, I didn't do my research though. But like Robin wrote, Hans explained me during our visit that it indeed a energy free coaster. That also why the exit is on the ground so that the lifthill doesn't have to pull cars with people in.

Thanks for reading and viewing. Next up : Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg

Main reason for our day out was the Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg concert in Tilburg that same evening. I've always been a fan of the Ramones and since MRB is the closest one can get to the Ramones, we didn't want to miss this concert.

The singer is now the ex-Misfits leadsinger Michael Graves.

76.jpg.a1435d1b4e7c0f5fbf8d8e04b90b5ed5.jpg

It was still about 4 hours before the concert started when we arrived in Tilburg so a lot of time to eat and drink.

77.jpg.2ebd6f1e8c627857077911d7ff8e1eee.jpg

The concerthall was rather small, which turned out to be excellent because the place was really packed and sold out.

  • 2 weeks later...

Last week, my kids, wife & me rented a villa in the South of France.

I saw on the internet that there was actually a themepark in the same city as we stayed in but I couldn't find anything back anywhere on coaster nor themeparksites.

By accident I saw a flyer of Lunapark in the supermarket, so the same evening I went to check it out. It turned out to be closed though but it didn't look like a dump so I assumed it would only be open in the evening and so it was.

 

Lunapark website : www.lunapark-frejus.com/

 

It's actually only open during summer, so it's more of a funfair than a themepark I think, although it's there 3 months a year.

102.jpg.a7339525b55dadab4058d390777e3b09.jpg

First some pics of the villa we rented.

We also went a day to Cannes

1903979484_foto4d.JPG.2b55e05ef29906eaaa459297da7b9deb.JPG

I assume this is the building where the yearly Festival of Cannes is taking place

246.jpg.b0fb3ecf3759eea94b961a5b1b752640.jpg

And we went for a day to St Tropez as you could have noticed on the kids' tshirts. Actually we bought those 2 'cheap' shirts to wear in the pool because the kids were sunburned the first days

ok, time for Lunapark

106.jpg.672dd8b1593cc028448c2e68dab228b1.jpg

Next to Lunapark, there is a waterpark

107.jpg.82a618990210e32747f84c606bde0d84.jpg

A nice selection of rides ...

108.jpg.e7fd038d4ee23ed05bf09d1661127bcd.jpg

But since we had our own private swimmingpool, we didn't go to the waterpark

111.jpg.8a2138eb72aaac2cfa650e59f4399af1.jpg

Lunapark is a pay per ride 'park', so no ticketbooths at the entrance

A few weeks ago, it was time for another holiday in the Usa. I signed up for the TPR NE trip, but we arrived a few days early so we decided to rent a car and drive South to revisit KD and BGE. In fact the main reason for us doing so was I-305, which wasn't there yet during our last visit in 2008.

1.jpg.7df3760c65fbccf5f5d2b4fbfa80c661.jpg

I really hate the intercontinental flights. To comfort myself a bit, I bought a Gordon Ramsey lunch at Heathrow, where I would meet up with Hans for our flight to Newark.

2.jpg.234aa13f2cc79b0df5092d0fb3ed378d.jpg

The food was very good, but after finishing this, the flight lunch was served and it all was a bit too much

3.jpg.d259e8f3fae450e2c97283724490f7d7.jpg

After a long travel day, the next morning at 6 am we were ready for the drive to KD. Our rental car reminded me of Pulp Fiction for some reason.

6.jpg.e9ff53be57e530ca4816c5a6e80ea9d8.jpg

Lots of space. The handling of the car after every slightest road bump was very special though. The car seemed like jumping after every bump and we had to correct the wheels after every jump. Well, we got used to it quite fast so no problem.

7.jpg.7919fc385db9ea23c869094c0c06ca2e.jpg

I love to be in the USA for all the soft drinks we can't get out here.

9.jpg.b67e6fb9fc95e9c065c4b82986c93d10.jpg

Pulp Fiction car requires a Pulp Fiction t-shirt. It was 6 am and I was already sweating. I only got used to the heat after 2 days.

11.jpg.b5391215c631cbecb887e52d7d13a0a6.jpg

On the road to KD

17.jpg.056d002b158ec51bcff22840477e7778.jpg

We arrived at KD shortly after opening

18.jpg.20c60465cf10171377a4dde636b2e043.jpg

We were going to meet up with Dennis & Werner at KD. After some texting, we found out they were already riding I-305 which came in extremely convenient because that was exactly what we also wanted to do.

Looking sweet

21.jpg.acb20c27ee999ad9cdb766e22f49a5f2.jpg

I really enjoyed riding I-305. It is sooooo fast.

25.jpg.8b2e7ac1ee160daa25342023a92da27e.jpg

Even the 'grey out' over there was, euh ..., how shall I call it, well it was an experience.

26.jpg.e0d24b243181fa1f5bf7e7d884ea39a9.jpg

It is by far the most intense coaster experience I have ever had. I think the expression of the lady on front row perfectly explains what most of the gp thinks about I-305

Quick ride on FoF

28.jpg.be190fadc3d8271a8ff30296be3c747d.jpg

Since I had all other credits, I didn't re-ride this Arrow goodness

29.jpg.2c39560015431a91fb45c30569dce3a3.jpg

Although I admit the settings are beautiful

31.jpg.b03c3acd6b2384fdeeb8debcd8297089.jpg

R&E wouldn't be very happy if I brought one of these on the bus I assume.

32.jpg.5c1a5906e806d1ebc2c63332ffa0b4f6.jpg

Volcano was running with one train only. Although crowds were fairly light during our visit, of course there was a considerable row for Volcano because of that.

Hans, Dennis & Werner

36.jpg.4c37c52684e1e7b34d446c1ea47b3cea.jpg

It's not a good coaster, but I like it.

I didn't remember exactly which woodie at KD is the worst. I still don't remember because I didn't feel like remembering and re-riding all the wood they have.

62.jpg.968cce73cf5f78c87a70c827216efa5f.jpg

Hans, Dennis & Werner did ride and got some blue souvenirs.

64.jpg.613af099f2728ca3e816ae1513705cc2.jpg

Sitting in the shadow, and I started to sweat even more. It must have been more than 200° that day.

The sky wasn't looking too good, so we quickly rerode I-305 a few more times.

76.jpg.f016e49dc7ef7d09d619fb8ca25cae3e.jpg

And took some last pics of it

While Dennis and Werner were going to stay till closing time, we left the park at about 6 pm and headed for Williamsburg. Just after Richmond, we ended up in a giant a$$ thunderstorm, one we've never experienced before out here. The only thing we could do on the highway, was staying close and follow the rear lights of the car in front of us. As we also didn't have too much fuel anymore, we decided to play safe and get of the highway and park somewhere and wait for hell to end, which soon happened and we enjoyed a nice evening in Williamsburg. TR of BGE coming soon. Thanks for reading.

^^Wow, you certainly know your hotels !!!!! I had to look it up, but that is exactly the hotel we stayed at

 

Steve, that's right, it was just before the NE trip. And I agree, that KD is not the park to visit during a heat wave. There is almost no shade at the park. But despite the heat, we had a great day at KD

 

EB, Robin, thanks for the compliments.

LOL. I really don't haha. I used to deliver food there all the time when I worked as a pizza guy, so I am very familiar with that particular hotel.

Thanks everybody.

 

It's a bank holiday out here, so I have time for the next update : Busch Gardens Williamsburg. Crowds were rather light so we decided not to purchase their front of line pass.

I liked the colored glitter things

For the first time, I didn't suffer from the usual jet lag. Not sure about Hans ;-)

3.jpg.f3cef6feabb52046c2474195c8d72bd4.jpg

The flight simulator. Not sure whether it was already there in 2008. We didn't ride it then in any case. This was one of the worst simulators I have ever been on. Total waste of time.

4.jpg.cf0b7e910692402be8ba791702e374b6.jpg

I recovered from the simulator while watching some birdies.

Rapids

61.jpg.7f378f94d0c4bd8e0463a8c9c046b501.jpg

Most rapids in the USA get you rather wet ....

Love their expression

This doesn't get you really wet though

66.jpg.07c61986e7aa4b8ce973763bfd1ebe75.jpg

Almost there

Sesame street

There are some great kiddie rides.

In a bar with this name out here, there WILL be hookers. So I have an idea where the Busch people got their inspiration.

Oh yeah, this ride is called Griffon in case you didn't know

97.jpg.f4dafd44c745f73f82f12aceb24dd5b5.jpg

I had to take a picture of this because the water is so clear. You will not find this in Western Europe.

In a weird way, the Festhaus kept on attracting us.

Et voila ! This concludes our own pre add on days to the TPR NE trip.
