PTR - Drouwenerzand - The Netherlands


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I visited a park that was new for me... Yes there are still new parks for me in The Netherlands and this one has a credit too.

 

The admission price is very low. For only € 11,50 you get admission, free drinks, free Ice cream and free FOOD. Like the thread description says the park is very small and filled with "old" carnival rides.

 

There are two "remarkable" rides A credit, it's a small spinning coaster!!!! and a very insane flatride, I could only ride it twice that day.

 

It's just one of those relaxed family parks with a great atmosphere.

 

 

Pictures....

Of course we travelled in good old "dutch" style.

Park entrance.

Always read the park rules before you enter.

And the lovely admission list.

You can't start a report without the park map. Sorry but this was the best map I could find.

IMG_0001_107.jpg.0a919ed5e8c23e06a16e16ec799c9f88.jpg

And don't forget about the directions. Very important too.

IMG_0001.thumb.jpg.3b302140acea5368ec6398eb0a5aae6b.jpg

Let's head to the first ride. It's a Disney Rip-off.

IMG_0001_1.jpg.e6dcf4498483554403d89ce18b07390c.jpg

A totally out of shape Donald.

Ride in action.

It's like Goofy, Superman and the statue of liberty had sex.

IMG_0001_3.thumb.jpg.31e686468b792748b03113718190f089.jpg

Next ride.

IMG_0001_4.thumb.jpg.4194c9e9bf3a5aaf058164e0b85c610c.jpg

You had to use pedals to let it go around.

IMG_0001_5.jpg.99d36085481c94d95259a1165d57b24c.jpg

IMG_0001_6.thumb.jpg.adb5fedaadd102f339f20263871058f1.jpg

Twister twisted.

IMG_0001_7.jpg.5e52bf494d386ea22f08151f9752b8b5.jpg

All of the rides were taken right of the fair and put in here.

IMG_0001_9.thumb.jpg.3f4859afecb7f732aaf211b516745202.jpg

For all the Carousel fanatics.. and I know they're out there.

IMG_0001_8.jpg.4ec1ea80b32f4b2d4ca93115a3506ccc.jpg

Tissues!!

IMG_0001_10.thumb.jpg.53f965dd72588895feb358a6fb569563.jpg

And now the spinning coaster with two names. Spinning coaster and Jungle.

IMG_0001_92.jpg.d4530ebc589f2dd35829e013df8fd022.jpg

So would it count for two credits too?

IMG_0001_15.jpg.0a392e37576fe2f27c2693c6435feb50.jpg

The little man could almost ride everything in this park.

IMG_0001_17.jpg.f87e76b413b1b0f3c98a41364bcf2390.jpg

and the big man too.

Rockin tug.

IMG_0001_22.jpg.c2a3cdbadf000be79d77e20cefa41aaf.jpg

I'm not sure if this one was a fair ride but it probably was.

IMG_0001_23.jpg.4f702b94fbf6e112bc8c480dec11b8ee.jpg

Time to fresh up a little.

IMG_0001_25.thumb.jpg.c3d0ca2cf608135c4c8721ffcf443fcb.jpg

Yeah free Ice cream. Some people will be so jealous right now.

IMG_0001_24.jpg.7c48b0d0f8c9263c4e1156b174eac823.jpg

and free drinks. Ok no soft drinks, no beer only lemonade but it was refreshing.

IMG_0001_27.thumb.jpg.38824a2080b98ed241090d4cb1bc2552.jpg

Next up the Oldtimers.

IMG_0001_26.jpg.0fa35a271a262d3d30933dd653f48245.jpg

Pirate ship.

IMG_0001_44.jpg.d61e3aa8554746d9f17c3c919e1f1364.jpg

It's one of those smaller models.

IMG_0001_45.jpg.1c44037e1790dd840110c5796f937bc1.jpg

But it has great airtime.

IMG_0001_35.thumb.jpg.2f46fb6a233c0a729cf0583f5228271b.jpg

Strange.

IMG_0001_31.jpg.ecc25e9ab9157a46303e6703aabb30b6.jpg

What's better a Superkick..

IMG_0001_37.jpg.db58b84d6d6e6b7f64ff70aad6efa6fc.jpg

Or a Top-Flight Deck?

IMG_0001_50.jpg.aea5f017fcf7ba4eda8306fcee5877ea.jpg

It's all free you know.

IMG_0001_53.jpg.841d1b48b2dc230d9b1d580ac0bad127.jpg

There are fries, Frikandellen, Kroketten and burgers.

IMG_0001_49.jpg.3db4fbae1f0bcf1b8baa4d6432c42211.jpg

I've learned on the Europetrip that it's important to document your food.

IMG_0001_106.jpg.691dce1697e2ec6649bb75a8e8990fec.jpg

There are some playgrounds too.

IMG_0001_33.thumb.jpg.a583b69eb4c31b847533f8370576de1f.jpg

Now the most insane flatride!!

IMG_0001_34.jpg.bdad81fcb6ee38ecb879a5f45f06d347.jpg

Looking harmless?

IMG_0001_38.jpg.04bd1635446caa171fb09e935ca874da.jpg

It was very disorientating.

IMG_0001_40.jpg.f8e4b09724d2f668fb667b71b9a26186.jpg

I'm still suffering from back problems.

Newest part of the park.

IMG_0001_80.jpg.de9b44b6ee8b72fd0429f022f4ee2bb7.jpg

It's a big square with only one ride on it but I gues this i where they plan future expansion.

Last ride of this report and I think there aren't any more rides at this park at all. Donkey Track!!!

IMG_0001_55.thumb.jpg.2c0aaee5656240b698efcbb3a15e02cc.jpg

There you go Larry!

IMG_0001_56.thumb.jpg.0da697567c021f315bffe7b62409ec1f.jpg

He will shoot you.

IMG_0001_59.jpg.b19f2d2f02af7560ea336686caffd4e2.jpg

This ride is so TPR approved.

IMG_0001_60.jpg.f41ca865ed2a722454cc4773a6342933.jpg

It's self operated too.

I wish the US had a small all-inclusive park like this. This looks like a fun place and I would spend my whole day on the Para-Jumper

 

When you said spinning coaster, I didn't expect something so small! However it does look like fun. Wouldn't be a bad backyard ride

Yes I think adults can ride the Donkey Track none of the adults did ride it but there were no operators near so I assume it is ok to ride.

 

Larry I know you are American and Nice..... How could 1 night drinking with TPR cause this? I think I will never hear the end of this!!!

 

Thanks Larry

This report made me laugh out Loud twice!! First your quote Hans that all food must be documented and then Larry's response.

 

And as further information. I thought the Rocking tug was special fabricated for Drouwernerzand to look like a Hunnebed. They are very proud of it.

 

(A hunnebed is a tomb made of large rocks that can be found all over the North East part of the Netherlands. Just for you Nice people to understand what a hunnebed is )

Geen dank Robin it's been my pleasure.

 

Are that all of the Dutch words you know. I thought that you could order someting in Dutch?

 

And the ticketprice is a bargain with all the free food, icecream and drinks.

 

 

It's even cheaper than going to McDonalds.

LETS DO IT!!

 

I've learned on the Europetrip that it's important to document your food.

 

See now we all got to experience what you ate, and our lives are much better off! Good thing you learned from the best! Anything else I/Mike/Chris can help you with?

 

Thanks for posting this report, it looks like quite the little park! Looks like there is a lot to do next time I head across the pond.
