Last bit of this Midwest trip in 07 was spent at Kings Island.

Beast at night was a lot of fun.

It was kind of challenging to get fun pictures from a lot of rides back then.

so you will have to do it with these ;)

Thanks for reading, should i continue with updates like this or is nobody interested?DSC_0567.thumb.JPG.90cccd79797a21545061e4c2fd660373.JPG

Backlot stunt coaster is such an underrated coaster. That upwards helix is intense!!

  • 1 month later...

Sorry for the delay, it has been a crazy busy month :(

 

Anyway.

The next Trip i joined was the Europe trip in 2008.

Lots of new parks (and some familiar ones) with a fun group of people :)

Fun times.

First stop on arrival day was at Le Jardin d'Acclimation

DSC_0062.thumb.JPG.7d9d985b6df824f0990582554e337cfa.JPG

this was a very nice coaster with a fun "tunnel" feature

DSC_0101.thumb.JPG.36c3f3cc9ffc0a4cac465d8cd1b2dfdb.JPG

fun for all ages

DSC_0147.thumb.JPG.bfaeab5675efecd0ea1d95496fd079c3.JPG

and yes, there was a powered coaster

DSC_0342.thumb.JPG.bf00c4277d304ac6933768b8ecc63fbe.JPG

and the spinner.

 

There also was a zoo area and other fun things to look at (or play with)

 

i'll try to update this 3 times a week, fingers crossed ;)

Next stop was Walibi Belgium

Looking back at the pictures it was another hot and busy day at the park (must have been a heatwave in the area at the time of the trip)

Somehow i managed to not ride the awesome shooter at the park (actually still have not done that) and we had a lovely look at that weird coaster/zipline/contraption thing that was built and torn down pretty soon after that. It was closed at that time.

 

anyway, picture time.

DSC_0016.thumb.JPG.b026504f2622eb1577cb616adb863291.JPG

welcome to Walibi Belgium

DSC_0020.thumb.JPG.6dd0904d869c21aaf6dd52c3828e041d.JPG

DSC_0055.thumb.JPG.741e9b9c834ae6f65a7edd73675936cc.JPG

first ride of the day, shuttle thing

DSC_0067.thumb.JPG.6fba9ff9bf20023465dda8d18f5addc8.JPG

i guess we can ride the kiddie ;)

DSC_0165.thumb.JPG.5d572b917edec4fe698f5717c3ca75d3.JPG

i've been told this is an awesome shooter. somehow i still have not been on it :(

DSC_0179.thumb.JPG.692cdee511fd266093d3ed644fd3bbe7.JPG

drop towers are fun

The afternoon/evening was filled with a fun activity close to Walibi Belgium.

Lots of climbing and ziplines :)

 

DSC_0711.thumb.JPG.1bc67f67e22e88d2f3a0f5646aa869a4.JPG

welcome to Aventure Parc

DSC_1080.thumb.jpg.f1d07b7658f4f85aa574b8cb868dadea.jpg

some rules/info

DSC_1112.thumb.jpg.589ad7e294691207526a72c2e8553122.jpg

after getting dressed people were released on the course in groups.

DSC_1126.thumb.jpg.e8d12ef91c80fa9edd1d0b9108fa0e40.jpg

starting small and low

DSC_1166.thumb.jpg.aed14e0f91f18ff9838199b7f227c3ad.jpg

things got more difficult over time

DSC_1240.thumb.jpg.9abc5ed71c89b8a15ba75e89f9cf3f10.jpg

some people looked in despair over the different challenges (or just felt old)

DSC_1291.thumb.jpg.f9a218941cc876735e1d65b063fc937d.jpg

and others made it look easy.

DSC_1320.thumb.jpg.efd8e08e4bbf1b3bb39c46a31d005313.jpg

but the ziplines got bigger each level and so got the reward/stoke

DSC_1492.thumb.jpg.1735f36b2aca34f4ae9268e21f69b614.jpg

Not sure if the place is still around, but if you get the chance to try something similar, go for it.

Lot of fun with a group of friends.

The next day we started at Bobbejaanland.

fun park, not too big (back then) with some fun and crazy rides.

DSC_0075.thumb.JPG.7523f481aeda510f3183d867c22dfba1.JPG

DSC_0234.thumb.JPG.811979d5faceb2dcfc06939578b2fa4a.JPG

and then we noticed this thing...

DSC_0459.thumb.JPG.ab364254bb68809f7897c2e33d8ad212.JPG

i guess a picture says more than a thousand words is pretty accurate in this case (i skipped it and am happy about it)

DSC_0600.thumb.JPG.0ec8736e024c89788372a8c7618fde94.JPG

Next stop during the 08 Europe Trip was Toverland.

Such a fun place (and they got some great new rides since 08)

Looking back at these images it reminds me that i should go back there sometime during the next couple of months for a relaxing day of picture taking and riding.

anyway, we arrived sometime during the afternoon, had time to explore the park a bit, got some food and then had part of the park to ourselves (with the group)

fun times

Next day started at Efteling.

Plenty of changes to the park since these pictures in 08.

lots of walking and sore feet after a day at this park (and we had another park to visit later that day)

let's talk about the next park.

Drievliet.

It's a small park in the Netherlands with a set of "standard" rides and something a little different.

plenty of flat rides and fun things to do.

we got there at the end of the day, had time to do a fun lap and check out the rides at the park and finished with a bit of time on the new addition (back then) at the park.

DSC_0018.thumb.JPG.6d413b547f553d3449561c5fbb4e0fe4.JPG

first things first, this spinner was crazy

DSC_0079.thumb.JPG.bf09de0708a0d94c349bf675ab5d1704.JPG

for the people that don't mind going up in the air

DSC_0262.thumb.JPG.c5f3dc730351aa1143d287e76962c1b4.JPG

logflumes are always a nice touch
