Yup, Hans took a picture of me. Much mahalo (Thank You)!

 

Hans, I believe you will not hear the end from this night! "Are you American? Are you nice?" This will continue like Chris' "Is that a real Space Shuttle?" comment and Chuck's "Push the Red Button" (Japan!!!).

Hahah...Hans, don't worry about it pal. Like Mike said, you'll pretty much be immortal to everyone who reads this report! (and everyone who was on our bus)

 

First off, this forum is very dog-eat-dog, isn't it? You gotta keep up-to-date if you want to keep the readers flowing in!

That being said, here's the part you've all (probably) been waiting for: the visuals!

This picture depicts what this ride will temporarily do to your vision.

Hmm...this looks familiar...

Walking adds years to your life.

You call it scenery, I call it technology used to find interplanetary species.

We all know what this is, right? :)

For those who don't know, this is Euromir, the crazy spinning coaster with an annoyingly catchy theme song!

Follow this link (

This ride writes its own joke.

Swimming anyone?

*gasp*

What could that be?

Why, it's Blue Fire, Europa Park's newest thrill ride! Check out that sexy loop...

Ohh yeah...you know you love it.

Twisty goodness.

More twisty goodness.

P7010142.JPG.baf8930e1805dd67fa082edecd134e9d.JPG

Easily the best part of the ride.

Culture time! Here we see the beginning of the beer tapping ceremony.

Blah blah blah...where's the beer??

Is this what I think it is?

Almost there...

FREE BEER!!

P7020161.JPG.e9ea6f14e052497deb50ade19b8e1dff.JPG

People desperate to receive free German beer.

 

On a random note, I wonder what the two in the foreground are looking at?

Our group enjoys the atmosphere and the food.

In the fair itself, we find another big @$$ wheel.

Even German kiddie rides are a bit odd.

P7020169.JPG.bd8090cede54887b73d2fd3f6d0ae34c.JPG

This is the most pedophilic ride I've ever seen. (so far...)

So many helixes in this update!

P7020178.JPG.263e1de571524ffefde085133c357707.JPG

This ride did have awesome airtime, but it turned my stomach a wee bit.

P7020179.JPG.320ddc96932b2878243545fe19ccde16.JPG

Oh yeah, this ride is totally original.

Total mind****.

This ride was broken for a while before it opened.

P7020185.JPG.73c76320f871ae7f6a783bfbbfcd27a3.JPG

I didn't trust it enough to ride it. (I also didn't have enough time or money.)

I'm actually quite proud of this pic. =)

I'll end this update with a wee bit of Würzburg culture.

 

Thank you for sticking around, and I hope you keep your adhesion long enough for the next update: Phantasialand!

Hey Davon!

 

Thanks a bunch for taking the time and effort to put this TR together. You managed to get photos of some cool things I didn't even see. The football bumper cars at Europa Park in particular.

 

For the record, I slept in the horsey bed in our room. I'm grateful for the tail, since I was sure it would keep me from taking a long spill to the floor (yes, it has happened).

 

I didn't leave the beer tent at the fair, so thanks for detailing the rides like you have. I like how Germans seem to perceive America. Hans definitely helped create an unforgettable bus ride. Later, I recall randomly waking up to the looping EuroMir theme over and over. It was a very Twilight-zone like time.

 

Looking forward to the rest!

Totally love how you guys "celebrate" EuroMirs Music and Theming.

 

And because some of you seem to relive their (positive) Europe experiences here...I`d like to post EuroSats Theme/Music, too.

Though maybe not as catchy as EuroMirs song...I think this Song is also outstanding.

 

Enjoy :

First of all, LOVING the TR! You took a lot of great pictures!

 

Second of all, I apologize for using your shoulder as a pillow! I did not realise this and hope my huge head didn't crush you're shoulder!

Oh, and what is "pseudo arguing"? And if it was with Karl I'm sure he was just being a little bitch!

 

Looking forward to the Phantasialand update!

Hello everyone! I apologize for leaving this thing to gather dust, but I'm at college doing at a summer program (not like summer school) so I havent' had much free time lately. I will definitely be responding to your comments and posting a new update as soon as I can this weekend though! Hang in there! Thanks!
