Gorgeous pictures, Hanno! I love that the rooftops of the buildings at Europa Park are all covered with grass. And that's something most people probably wouldn't see since ordinary guests don't get to go the places that TPR people go for photo angles. Great job!

Gorgeous pictures, Hanno! I love that the rooftops of the buildings at Europa Park are all covered with grass.

Only a few in Iceland... because it's typically Icelandic.

But I can see why you would think that, because in Hanno's report, 90% of the photos are of Wodan and Bluefire.

Next stop on this tour was Heide Park.

Home to a fun B&M dive machien called Krake (their latest coaster addiction) and don't forget about Colossos ;)

 

The entire day it was clouded and either raining or close to raining.. so the pictures are not the greatest.. but should still give you and idea of the fun we had that day :)

Next stop was Schlossbeck and Movie Park Germany.

 

Schlossbeck home to some very awesome "do it yourself" rides and "never in the US" rides.

It's more of a small kids family park but adults can have a blast there as well..

 

Movie Park Germany.. home to Bandit and High Fall...

Van helsing is their latest addition (and i totally forgot to get pictures of that ride).

regarding Bandit.... i'm so happy i got the credit when the ride was still somewhat decent (wild Wild West time). Going through the pictures from this day i'm very happy (again) that i did not bother giving it another chance.. Yikes.

 

Enjoy ;)

There used to be some rather odd stuff in the yellow building at Schlossbeck--did no one have the courage to venture within? Was that yet-to-be-opened ride some sort of alpine coaster? If so, that would be perfect for that park.

Some saw an aline disco party with a crocodile. I saw something far more sinister: http://themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=617989#p617989.
