Photo TR: Eric's European Theme Park Journey


Recommended Posts

too bad it wasn't as awesome as we had hoped it would be. But at least 3D glasses were involved!

 

I know I am late on posting this, but we got screwed on our ride! Like straight up! I can't believe we waited all that time for a 1 minute spectacula of failure. Gah, I'm still not over the disappointment. As always, great pictures and I look forward to the next update!

^Thanks Jordan! You are so right. I still don't know what happened in that Terminator thing. It was so weird! It was such an epic fail, so much possibility. I'm not sure what was more disturbing - the shortness of the "show/experience" or at least in our group's pre-show room a dozen school kids started to laugh uncontrollably during the part where the earth gets nuked!

Once arriving in Germany, we stayed at a fantastic resort for 2 nights, the Hotel Colosseo at the Europa Park Resort. It was funny now that I think about it, we left Italy, arrived in Germany and now was staying at a Italian themed hotel! But what a gorgeous hotel to stay at! Every inch of this hotel was gorgeous. Along with Europa Park, this was probably my favorite stop on our tour. This photo update is just for the amazing hotel, next update will include lots of photos from Europa Park. Stay tuned!

After awhile we then moved to the lounge for a few drinks.

Hotel Colosseo was fantastic, a top notch resort! Next up: agazillion photos from our 1 & 1/2 days at my favorite park of the trip, Europa Park. Stay tuned!

After all these pictures and trip reports, it makes me wish we had more time at all the destinations. I didn't even have time to check out the pool, and I was quite looking forward to this pool and Gardaland's pool. Next time? Regardless, I really liked this hotel!

 

Can't wait for the park update!

^ I really wanted to check out the Gardaland Hotel's pool too! I guess it gives another reason to come back someday!

 

When we arrived in Germany, we spent a day and a half at my favorite park of the trip, Europa Park. This park was gigantic! Featured gorgeous gardens and agazillion attractions all themed to many different European countries. I highly recommend this great park and resort. Words can't describe the awesomeness of this place so I'll let the photos do the talking!

Europa Park really rivals in my opinion as being one of the most beautiful parks in the world!

BlueFire1.jpg.cb4c484e522f77e0704fd91f99180ad6.jpg

The first morning at Europa Park, we had ERT on the awesome Blue Fire coaster.

BlueFire2.jpg.0b2ea74421742c76c864eb5410e7f3de.jpg

Blue Fire features a small dark ride portion, then an incredible launch, multi inversions and lots of speed!

BlueFire3.jpg.a43547afc72ec6ad2767779eed5cbda3.jpg

I fell in love with this coaster that morning!

Next up, another favorite coaster of the trip, the awesome Euro-Mir!

EuroMir1.jpg.4aa92764c6481c1181f680e2cf785b4f.jpg

Euro-Mir is this weird but amazing spinning coaster like no other I have ever ridden.

euromirsign.jpg.d3d7cd2e62061e92e4c3ff1263b3c4b8.jpg

The techno Euro-Mir song stays with you long after you get off the ride!

Next up was Eurostat, the park's space themed indoor coaster in the dark. Another highlight of our time at Europa was on the second morning at the park, we had ERT with the lights on Eurostat, it was great!

EuroStat2.jpg.83afe666068fd9b8c5574ba076c80173.jpg

The queue for Eurostat was pretty trippy.

dino.jpg.cec3ead5af1f20e3cb7385b3a48a5be3.jpg

The park even had a dinosaur themed ride named Universe of Energy. Sound familiar? It was actually pretty good.

lunchcounter.jpg.f00118bbb675268027c12d64bedc8af9.jpg

We grabbed lunch at a cheese counter.

lunch.jpg.69df45441977bcd42fee63de22214322.jpg

Even though the cheese shop/counter smelled absolutely gross, it was really good. And the best part was that they had ice for the drinks! =)

Atlantis1.jpg.9eed5989f36e8d436c08073ee320c02c.jpg

Heading over to the Greek section. This area featured a Atlantis themed shooting dark ride.

posiden.jpg.80a96c050ead0249e818e566cabb1bf6.jpg

But the main draw for most people in the Greek section is Poseidon, a pretty good water coaster.

Splash!

Since it was really hot out, I wish we could have gotten more wet.

silverwalk.jpg.2773f859f85a6813ed2ceb82f4992c74.jpg

Another awesome perk of our time at Europa was on the second morning we had unexpected ERT on Silver Star. It was great! Thanks again to Robb for aranging this fantastic surprise!

Europa Park Continued.

We now head over to Portugal for Atlantica Supersplash.

Animated scene in Atlantica's queue.

Supersplashdrop.jpg.9e7806fe846f7b08e800fc9fc8850467.jpg

The drop was pretty cool.

supersplash3.jpg.43933a3bc006927ad2f72df0a4eec5af.jpg

Other than the drop and the little backwards part, I guess this and Journey to Atlantis at SWT aren't that exciting to me.

Supersplash4.jpg.c04041f6f85047613b4d605581d6c23e.jpg

The theming on Atlantic was nice, just wish there was more to the ride.

Pirates3.jpg.0bb5873112d8e2b9bd47a42f0e9ba79a.jpg

Pirates in Batavia was a great Pirates knock off boat ride.

pirates1.jpg.ca651449bd6c8e0b39145c512b7b9cab.jpg

Pirates in Batavia was well done, but I got to give it to Gardaland's Pirate boat ride for being my favorite.

More gorgeous theming.

ghost1.jpg.8551f115a9d7f5c81407fbcac7ec628c.jpg

Ghost Castle was the park's version of the Haunted Mansion.

ghost2.jpg.9b14d0dad6be8cd241345b0546173b59.jpg

Ghost Castle was pretty elaborate. Am I the only one that swears they saw 3 KKK figures in one of the scenes during the ride?

ciao.jpg.9146c20e52a98a417c921f606de608e3.jpg

Ciao Bambimi is a cute small world like dark ride.

Usually I don't care that much about riding bumper cars, but how cool are these!

Fjord-Rafting river rapids ride - will Larry and Andrew get soaked on this ride?

Or will this side of the boat get it?

Actually none of us got too drenched.

Unfortunately this concludes our stay at the Europa Park and Hotel Colesso. What an amazing time!

As always Eric, you've delivered another fantastic trip report. It is great to see so many familiar, friendly faces from the TPR trips, and truthfully, the report has only made my jealousy that you all did this trip even greater! But I guess there's always next time!

 

Keep up the great work with this awesome report, and hopefully we'll catch up state side sooner or later!

Europa Park is awesome, despite what some terrible Brit Kids may try to tell you!

 

Is it time to go back yet??

 

Quoted for truth! I love this park! That walkthrough cave that interacts with the powered coaster and the log ride is one my favorite spots there.

I was a bit hesitant to tell you and all my UK trip buddies how much I loved Europa since I was afraid I would overhype the park. I am glad that everyone that I know seems to have loved it as much as I loved it in 08!

The World of Diamonds walkthrough was a true "gem" attraction. There is so much to explore in this park, I probably could spend 2 full days there!

Our next day Robb & Elissa, arranged for our group to visit The Wurzburg Fair in a small German town. The main perk was that we had ERT (extra ride time) on Olympia Looping. Olympia Looping is one of the largest traveling coasters to ever travel in the fair circuit. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever ride this coaster, so it was a great surprise to have this added to our tour! After ERT, we enjoyed a couple of hours in the festhaus-beer tent. Lots of yummy German food and entertainment. This was opening day of the fair so the town's mayor was on hand to kick off the opening ceremonies. It was a lot of fun and it was nice experiencing a true German activity. Onto the photos!

After ERT on Olympia Looping it was time to spend a few hours in the festhaus beer tent for some festivities.

And then Ben.

Then some of the locals decided to show us how it's done.

They formed a human ladder.

Awesome so far. I really should have tried to sneak onto this trip using your name. Maybe next time!

That reminds me of the time when we were going into Universal right after each other and the Universal team member did a double take after reading our annual passes. She gave us a look like are we trying scam her!
