-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

So now that haunt season is over and my time is freed up I figured I should sit down and start putting together the trip report for my 2 1/2 weeks in Europe and the two TPR trips I joined.

 

My venture from Pennsylvannia all the way to Rome was uneventful.... did learn something though, never eat airline food EVER!

 

I got to Rome early in the morning and breezed through immigration and customs with just a quick glace given to my passport (obviously vastly different than I would experience when I was returning home). After dodging the line of taxi drivers and getting some toiletries I made my way to the airport shuttle to the hotel to meet with TPR.

 

Trevi Fountain

Pantheon

Spanish Steps (Quick drive by)

Gelato stop!!!

Piazza del Campidoglio

Colosseum

Vatican

 

And of course a credit whoring stop at Parco Morelli! (Thanks Robb and Elissa for squeezing it in)

 

And now onto the photos...

 

Day 2 will be up in a few days101_2178.thumb.JPG.5943c7023bd8c78254b70e577ea59288.JPG

This was my view for 8 hours....

 

You should've taken Europe in the Air out of Busch Gardens Williamsburg. It only takes them five minutes to get to Rome.

This just might inspire me to post mine, too!

 

Might...I only have 4 days until I hit the road for my job again.

 

Edit - BTW, Ken, the Parthenon is in Greece. That's the Pantheon we went to. I still get the names confused, myself, haha.

Those "random ruins" are the Forum, probably the most historically significant site in Rome. Yeah, they aren't much to look at these days. Great pictures. I can't believe how crowded the Trevi Fountain was. Guess that's why I travel off season these days.

You can never have too few pictures of that horrible airport though

 

Dude, that was the first airport that I have chosen to carry my bags rather than roll them because I was concerned about what may have been growing on those floors...

 

Well here is update number dos. AKA DAWN OF THE WACKY WORMS

 

The second day of the trip would bring us to real coaster riding with 4 parks across Rome.

 

The day started with breakfast than meeting up in the lobby to get into the convoy again and make hast for the beach to try and beat the crowds that would soon descend on the area. We started by taking the scenic route and found out that when in italy you dump your trash along the roads... so we turned it into a game and tried to find everything you would need to build a house. Well we found everything but the kitchen sink .

 

 

Finally we arrived at the first park of the day and the first "Real" park of the trip Zoomarine!

 

I did some mild research before the trip but still wasn't sure what to expect. The park was very clean and well taken care of and featured a waterpark, wildlife park and an amusement park all combine and was small but felt very spread out. The two coasters are Vertigo (Don't worry this one didn't fall over....yet) a schwarzkopf and Squalotto a wacky worm.

 

We made our way to Vertigo first but found out it didn't open till later so one of our drivers started to negotiate with the employees as we went back and got our wacky worm credit before being told to head back to vertigo. Robb than talked to the park owner and he ended up opening it exclusively for us to get a ride or two! It was smooth and fun just like any other schwarzkopf.

 

We than had a little time to explore the park so we all spread out. A group of us made our way to hit a few flat rides and than we braved their Dinosaur walk through. It was really weird and it didn't help none of us know italian to listen to the employee who randomly stops and talks to everyone about what they are seeing. It was dark and had some props and animatronics including one that decided to assault a member of our group while the rest of us we able to duck the large tail coming at us from the darkness however one was not so lucky... but he lived and we made our way to meet with the group to depart. I highly recommend a visit to Zoomarine if you are ever in the area.

 

Next up was Fantasiland which was just a block away.. however when we showed up the park was locked up. Robb was able to find an employee and try to bribe them to open the coaster for us. Well after a few minutes and a price of 3 chickens a goat and two women they agreed to open the coaster for us. We drove into the park and were lead to the coaster where they just pulled the tarps off and started loading people. Luckily we all survived.

 

We than left and made our way back towards Rome for our next park Oasi Park. Not sure what to say about this place but it just seemed like they tried to fit in any IP they could find and didn't care how it mixed. The park however was very clean and well kept and seemed like the perfect park for kids. Well we rode their Mini Mouse and posse for a group photo before leaving for our last park.

 

Eden Park was the last park of the day. It was another very small park aimed at children.... however this one had a bar and a casino! We were here for the coaster however... Brucomela which is another wacky worm. Got the credit than left to head back to the hotel it was once again another great day and alot of fun! But now it's time for pics!

Alright here comes day 3... RAINBOW MAGICLAND!

 

Located just outside Rome this park opened just last year and it was a pleasant surprise. It had a feel of Islands of Adventure meets Hard Rock Park but the theming was half-a$$ed in places and the park lacked shade however it was still a nice park with some ... well... interesting theme songs.

 

We got there a little bit early and waited to be let into the park for our ERT and were guided through the very Islands of Adventure entryway to Shock... but shockingly (Get it? Ehh) it was down so the lead us to Cagliostro for our ERT and even gave us some lights on rides. It was a Maurer Söhne spinner which wasn't bad but it wasn't no Winjas. I ended up with about 12 rides throughout the day.

 

After our session we were lead back to Shock for what we expected was a ride or two since the park was about to open but the park gave us our full session (Almost an hour) exclusively to us even though the park was open at this point. Before the session though we still had to wait a few minutes as they were still working on it so we seeked refuge from the heat in the gelato shop and got to watch their opening show which was interesting.

 

Shock was ready for us at this point so we headed back and I grabbed a back seat for my first ride. To go through the awkward pre-launch section you hit the launch immediately and shot over the hill for a nice pop of air than into the non inverting loop followed but the intense tiny over bank turn followed by breaks than a few more twists than the inline twist which had some good laterals than the breaks. Its a great ride and would love to see more of these built (And no not HRRR).

 

Now I just share my thoughts on the rest of the park rides.

 

Bombo Run Wait was Typical Vekoma roller skater.

 

Americo (Bruco now) It is just an ordinary Wacky Worm with zero theming. It felt out of place.

 

Continuing around the park we grabbed lunch which was a pretty beefy meal of lasauna salad bread and included wine and other things.

 

Olandese Volante which was a family mine train like Eagles in the fastland at HRP.

 

Huntik 3-D opened at 12. It has a very impressive exterior, however the ride is not that great. It uses cars that reminded me of Spiderman (Not sure if its the same company) but some really crappy visuals it is a shooting dark ride but I was able to lag several of the screens and I couldn't figure out the story.

 

Mystika This drop tower had a great view but I hate hate hate drop rides and the fact it held us up there for a while didn't help at all.

 

Believix (Winx Club ride) We actually missed this the first time around as I didn't know it existed. It had a similar ride system as Peter Pan but was much more scarier just due to the fact of what this one was themed to. The ride emptied into a play ground thingy which I thought was weird.

 

Drakkar After another ride on Huntik we decided to cool down on the rapids. I was surprised to see people standing on the ride in sight of ops but would learn that this is a common occurence in Europe. The ride had some nice scenery and got you very wet which was good and very needed that day.

 

We hit up shock again before meeting to group which all agreed on another two hours at the park.

 

Maison Houdini Next up was the Mad House. This one was interesting in that it was actually built under the park. Most people didn't even realize that till I pointed out the vents and skylights between the buildings.

 

L'Isola Volante The flying island would be our last ride today.

 

My final thoughts are that the park was very nice and upkeep seemed well. More shade and trees are defiantly needed along with more locations to buy drinks. Can't wait to see what the park does next.

We'll start off with this neat structure we passed on the way to the park.

Americo (Bruco now) It is just an ordinary Wacky Worm with zero theming. It felt out of place.

 

Huntik 3-D opened at 12. It has a very impressive exterior, however the ride is not that great. It uses cars that reminded me of Spiderman (Not sure if its the same company) but some really crappy visuals it is a shooting dark ride but I was able to lag several of the screens and I couldn't figure out the story.

 

Believix (Winx Club ride) We actually missed this the first time around as I didn't know it existed. It had a similar ride system as Peter Pan but was much more scarier just due to the fact of what this one was themed to. The ride emptied into a play ground thingy which I thought was weird.

 

Agreed about the Wacky Worm. The kiddie area wasn't great, but it was at least themed and permanent...other than the Wacky Worm!

 

Huntik was odd, it should have been good but like you said between the blurriness and the guns not working right it was just ok. Maybe if it was 9D instead of 5D it would have been better.

 

Nothing weird about the Winx Ride emptying out into that awesome kids playground! KT spent most of the day over there. It's one of those new Japanese style play grounds and we only have one in all of the USA, hoping to see more soon!

Oh I forgot to mention the game of Frogger we had to do to cross the street to the hotel with the crazy italian drivers about when we arrived the.

 

Here is day 4 Fiabilandia!

 

After a pretty fun night at the local bar and some exploring we woke up in Rimini and met up to leave for our next park Fiabilandia. Originally we planned to be at this park till 4 but since it was a pretty small park we all pretty much agreed to cut that back which turned out the be a good thing... we'll get to that later.

 

We boarded the bus and departed to the park. We arrived and got our tickets and went into the park.

 

il Castello de Merlino Our group decided to hit the dark ride first since it was the first thing you seen when you entered the park. After a short wait we all boarded separately. This wasn't a "good" ride but I thought it was charming in a way. But I did like one of the final tricks (Which unfortunately was ruined by a open exit door on our second ride) I won't spoil it but I do applaud anything that can manage to scare me.

 

Space Mouse Next we hit our first credit the spinner... something I noticed was that this park limits your rides on the "Big" rides. Not sure if it was only once but that is what we were assuming since they stamped our park tickets. Anyway one was fine but the coaster was fun though.

 

We found out the powered coaster was gone and a log flume was being built in its place.

 

Valle degli Gnomi What is Valle degli Gnomi you ask??? Well its the worlds longest wacky worm! It goes over a spread out landscape with a few little "dark ride sections" pretty neat but only worth one ride for us.

 

Nolan wanted to do the Adams family show but that didn't go on till after we would leave.

 

Continuing around the giant lake this park is built around we come to our next credit.

 

Miniera d'Oro This would be the last credit of this park. It seemed like a BTMRR knock off in some ways and had some cheap theming. Their was one drop that scared the poo out of us but the rest of the ride was meh. Kids loved it though.

 

Jurassic Cars We found this drive your-self ride so we had to do it.

 

il Lago del Sogno Running into some more of the group we all took over the last darkride. This is a weird boat ride goes through a little outside area before being swallowed by a giant worm? And some how ending up in his stomach that is growing these huge magical plants??? I don't know at this point our boat was struck by the rock work around the ride.

 

After another lap on il Castello de Merlino the group met up and decided it was time to leave. Rimini is up next!

I find Shock's cartoonish entrance amusing for some reason.

Rather "Jules Verneish"--I guess they were going for some sort of "steampunk" thing?

After leaving Fiabilandia a little early we had some free time around Rimini before a surprise credit run that night and dinner after that.

 

Several of us went out to get some food and ended up at this buffalo restaurant (Can't remember the exact name). Than walked around town and checked out the beach well anyway here are the photos of one of my favorite places we visited on the two trips.

Continuing on we come to day 5 which was Mirabilandia!

 

We arrived early as we had ERT on Katun and Ispeed and when we arrived we found out the park was not selling Qbots that day however they gave us VIP wristbands for direct boarding to most of the rides!

 

After getting our tickets and stuff we headed back to Katun. My first ride was in the front and wow I was surprised with this one. I had heard it was a good ride but it was a really good ride! Its too bad B&M don't make inverts like that anymore. During Katun ERT we could see the park warming up Ispeed so after about 7 rides we headed to the other side of the park.

 

We arrived at Ispeed and after a short wait I got my first ride in the front. The first ride I thought was going to rollback but unfortunately it didn't but the rest of the ride was alot of fun. It kinda reminded me on Maverick. After about 5 rides the GP caught up and our session was over. After splitting up a group of us made haste for Phobia but grabbed the kiddie coaster first as did everyone else it seemed.

 

After finding out Phobia didn't open till later we grabbed the shot towers followed by the mouse and the powered coaster which were both fun.

 

Next we did the Shoot-the-shoots and Rapids.

 

Passing Katun we grabbed another ride and tried to get Master Thai but it was down and they in the middle of an E-vac. Next we hit the Himalaya which had a caterpillar type canvas which I thought was neat. We continued back and tried to get Master Thai again but no luck so we headed back to phobia which was about to open.

 

We arrived at Phobia to see a large crowd already gathered at the entrance well at this point we were confused whether it was free or an upcharge. Finally after finding the hidden ticket booth I picked up the 5 Euro tickets for the group and we returned to wait with the crowd. Well luckily where we were standing was where the staff decided to open the queue vs the normal spot so we ended up the at the front of the line behind two other girls. Their paired our group up with the girls where we were brought into a small room where they explained the rules in Italian to the girls and english to us (Kudos on the great acting here). We were set up in Conga line style (Which I am not a fan of) and we headed in. I won't give away too much but it was pretty good and the girls were very entertaining... I even managed to scare them a few times (On accident of course )

 

At this point we headed back to DiVertical which we were supposed to have ERT on that morning but it was down so we set a time later to meet up at the ride. It was actually alot of fun! I don't understand why everyone complains about it over there. We only grabbed one ride before heading to the shooting dark ride.

 

Reset: Anno Zero is the shooting dark ride themed to an apocalyptic New York City... unfortunately it was really dark and alot of times you were shooting at nothing.

 

Grabbed another ride on Ispeed and the logflume before heading to the stunt show where we had VIP seating. At this point I learned that Master Thai was back up and opted to skip the show which I would later regret. Hurrying back over to the other side of the park we did find a working Master Thai! Patiently waiting we managed to score the credit it wasn't anything great but was a credit (Or two? since you ride on both sides in the same cycle)

 

We than hopped on Katun one last time before heading to the front of the park to leave. It was a great day and I loved the park... well besides all the random dead ends.

After Mirabilandia we headed north to Lake Garda to stay at the Gardaland Hotel. It was a really nice hotel besides the annoying midnight dance hour where they load kids up with caffeine and have them run around the hotel lobby/courtyard. I did feel bad for their parents those nights though haha.

 

The next morning we woke up and grab breakfast before heading to the bus for our next stop Movieland Studios!

 

Passing Gardaland on the way we arrived to find a very USO feel to the park with the Hard Rock Cafe knock off along with the midevil show. We got to the front gate where we were than taken on a waterpark tour by our host Alberto. He walked us all around the waterpark giving us a good idea of the layout even showing us the death slides which we will get to later.

 

Next we headed into the main park for the first ride of the day on Magma 2... This ride was all kinds of sketchy from the tattooed up ops smoking next to the cars before speeding us off into the backlot. Flying past ride supports and just a whole lot of never in the US stuff. It was alot of fun though.

 

Hollywood Tower was next. It is your typical Intamin 1st gen freefall that tried to be a clear knock-off of disney's tower of terrors but minus the ghosts and dark ride.

 

The group than headed down to Bronto Jet the park's newish Schwarzkopf it was ofcourse fun. Next was Broto 'O' Ring the parks powered kiddie coaster where some people couldn't fit and got to ride with their lapbar up... another never in the US.

 

U-571 was next. I didn't know what to expect with this ride besides that it was a water ride. We were directed into the show room where it starts with a little skip before we become under attack and were quickly ushered into the sub. We arrive in the main compartment and are told to sit on these very loose "Missiles" on either side of the room. The back door shuts and the actor starts screaming at us in italian before the ride starts and we begin rocking for a little bit before it we rock faster. At this point the we start to get water boarded and the compartments open rushing water at us I had a cold waterfall going right down my back the entire 5 minutes of the ride. It was alot of fun especially with a group I don't think anyone had a single dry spot on them after.

 

Next we headed to Terminator which I was expecting to be like Universal's but it wasn't instead you are the one the ones fighting back with the guns and a score keeper.

 

At this point was Lunch where the fun really began. Our meal consisted of an open tap so knowing Robb planned to film us on the death slide in a bit we loaded up. Also I noticed a mechanical bull in the corner of the seating area so they opened it for us so a bunch of us tried to see who could stay on the longest some only lasted quite a bit some didn't make it two seconds... Kidtums ended up lasting longer than anyone else.

 

After this we heading to the water park where we quickly changed and got in line for the death slides. Robb put me with Nolan for our first ride which was bad since we found the weight restrictions after we rode. It was Nolan in front and me in the back. The operator started the belt and we shot off over the edge we didn't touch the slide for a while down but when we did the tube punctured and sent us up on the side of the chute. Nolan stopped at the top of the bunny hill where I rolled back over the cheese grater type drain grates. After tearing up my back I shot back up the first drop before sliding back down where at this point Nolan was doing the same and we ended up crashing in the middle. After collecting what was left of the tube we exited the flume where the lifeguard meant up with us and had a shocked look when I handed her the tube I don't think they see that often. I was fine but I wasn't doing it again. Nolan did and that is the famous slide wipeout video.

 

Heading to the other side of the park we did the Water jump slides which were very fun but sadly we won't see them in the US anytime soon... or ever.

 

At this point we had a little time to kill so we did the action river before heading back to the studios for the Rambo stunt show.

 

Earlier in the day me, Kyle, and Nolan were asked if we wanted to be in the Rambo stunt show so ofcourse we said yes. We meant with Alberto who lead us into a back door to seat us in special seats. The show started off with some general speaking to the audience still not sure what he said but than his soilders started filling the seating area some repealing in. We were than instructed to stand and put our hands behind our head and were lead down front. At this point we realised that the actors didn't realize we didn't speak Italian so it was pretty amusing to the crowd as we struggled to understand their directions but once we did we had to do squats for a while before being taken away to change into our prison outfits. After some stunts we were lead back out to more squats before being loaded in the back of a truck where Rambo tried to save us but failed. I just hear hold on so I did before the drive slammed the breaks and almost sent Nolan and Kyle flying. We were than taken behind the stage where we got to see some of the workings of the show which was cool than we were taken to the cell to sit out most of the show which consisted of alot of fighting, water craft, and ofcouse pyro. We were than lead to a tiny raft where after a short delay we were than "Rescued" after Rambo kills the general we than get rushed about before the staff and us where introduced to the audience. Still we had no idea what they were saying but they gave us some cold drinks and another set of bows before running around the stage and into the costume room to change out of our outfits. It was alot of fun and kind of funny trying to figure out everything and everyone else got a kick out of it.

 

After this we did Magma 2 again than did the Police Academy simulator. Once again no clue but we did the chicken dance...

 

We than did the Back to the backlot tour which was a very slow monorail with some stops. No idea what they said but I don't think we got to 88 MPH let alone 8 MPH...

 

Some did U-571 again while I watched our stuff than headed to the front of the park and did Tomb Raider which was the most intense Top Spin I have been on, I ended up with 11 spins. At this point we headed back to the bus to return to the hotel before doing Gardaland later that night which I will get too later.

 

Overall this was the best and most random day of the trip for me and I loved it! I really hope to get back to this park someday.

Cool, haven't been to Movieland for like 6 years and even more to Aqualand (8 years I believe). Aqualand seems almost the same as it was back then (only the highest slide appears to be modified), but Movieland has really changed. For example there was no themeing in the (now) flinstones area, all the ride's names started with X (X-splash, X-speed...), there was a powered Pinfari in the place of Go-gator, and also the Tower of Terror was still being constructed (or was it already constructed, but technical problems kept it away from opening to public)

^^ Thanks! I'm feeling the same way.

 

^ Haha Honestly wouldn't surprise me.

 

This next update is Gardaland which is also the last park of the Italy trip. This update is actually from two days as we had two day passes and with Gardaland extending their hours till 11 a group of us decided to head over and get a head start after Movieland. To save time I am combining the updates.

 

I really wasn't sure what to expect with this park since for a while I didn't even realize it was in Italy. The park really surprised me in alot of ways like the beautiful landscape, friendly staff, and some really unique rides for every type of person.

 

Raptor This was our first ride of course. After riding Wild Eagle earlier this year I was looking forward to comparing it to the original wingrider. I enjoyed Raptor alot more just the way it interacts with so much. Still these wing riders are nothing extreme but are just fun to ride.

 

Blue Tornado We decided to the SLC done and over with on the first day. Nothing to say it's an SLC, If you really want to know our experience just take your fists and repeatedly punch yourself in the face from both sides.

 

Space Vertigo Shortest Intamin drop ride ever.

 

Mammut This was a fun mine train and was very long.

 

Ice Age 4D We only did this because it was the "NEW" attraction but it is nothing more than clips from Ice Age 3.

 

Ramses Seriously WTF this was like Terminator meets Aliens and Egyptians it was amazing and had an awesome soundtrack too.

 

I Corsari I didn't even realize they had a copy of Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean and I especially didn't expect it to be so huge. The neat thing is that this one is built under a very large section of the park.

 

Our second day starting with a filming session / ERT on Raptor before being walked down to Sequoia Adventure.

 

Sequoia Adventure Definitely on of the weirdest rides I have been on and one of the most uncomfortable and we had to ride it twice so Robb could capture our pain.

 

Magic Mountain No not the one in California this was a double loop/corkscrew coaster. Not too bad.

 

Ortobruco Tour Was our last coaster and was another giant wacky worm type coaster.

 

The rest of the day we spent exploring the park and re riding our favorites. It was a long but fun day but sadly it was the last for the only Italy folks. But the Europe Trip was next so that will be the next update so enjoy the pics.

With Gardaland over with that brought us to the end of the Italy tour and it was time to say goodbye to some of the group and to meet new ones as we stopped in Milan to pick up the Europe people and make our way north through the very beautiful Switzerland and into southern france to take over a very charming motel in a tiny town.

 

The next morning we woke up and made our way to Walygator!

 

After a prayer we arrived at the park to hangout at the park gates before heading back to ERT on Monster

 

Monster or Raptor (Cedar Point) as it call also be related to since it is an almost exact copy minus the Mid course (But CP don't use it either). The ride was pretty smooth and alot of fun and was without a doubt the best ride in the park.

 

Anaconda LOL, well what to say bout this ride. It really wasn't rough but it wasn't great. I mean with anti rollbacks your used to hearing click.click.click this was like click..... click..... click..... definitely amusing and some of us were expecting it to pull a Hades at any moment.

 

Family Coaster Nothing more than a wacky worm.

 

Space Comet Typical vekoma looper...

 

The Terror House This haunt was... interesting. It had a nice facade but that was it. After the queue (Which we had no wait) they send you through a short black light maze with very short walls. Than you exit where you entered and the attendant handed us a piece of paper with your standard haunt house rules (Don't touch actors, ect) he had us read it than pointed us to a door which lead to stairs down into the actual haunt. There were several girls we caught up to while they were being chased around by the lone actor with a chainsaw. It was very amusing but there wasn't much else to this haunt.

 

At this point we headed to the front of the park to meet the group as this was only a credit stop but that was all we needed as there wasn't much else to this park and we had Expedition G-Force to look forward to!
