Here you can see Europa Park's newest hotel, the Bell Rock Hotel which literally opened up just DAYS after our visit.

All right. Fast foreword to the next morning, we're taking the Monorail for we have a special treat for us at Europa Park before we go.

eurosat4.JPG.3ea5741fa631e12fadd9f3ea5022c3e7.JPG

ERT ON EUROSAT WITH THE LIGHTS ON!!!!!!!! =)

eurosat5.JPG.be4695f707460957289fe62182694df8.JPG

Euro Sat is very interesting. Imagine Space Mountain, if it had a long snake train, had a spiral lifthill, was super fast and twisted everywhere, provided lots of laterals, and blasted techno music.

eurosat6.JPG.8fe142e7ff2ebb2a5345cfab7e22f566.JPG

LIGHT SPEED!!!!

euromir8.JPG.c46a62394fe5d14cc6a5f4cc2ab9b592.JPG

And a group of us decided to sneak in one last party ride on Euro-Mir before we head on back to the bus so we can drive to our next park.

^^This is seriously one of the best parks in the world. IMHO, the only park that beats it out would be Tokyo Disney Seas.

 

Nice trip report, it's great to see all the parks again.

 

Agreed, Europa is an awesome park. I think I like it a little better then DisneySea but that could be because I only have been to Europa once and DisneySea a few more times.

All right. Time for the next park on the trip. After all the amazingness of going to Europa Park, you'd think that nothing would be able to top that. And you're absolutely right. Europa Park was the highlight of the trip. But we were still off to a great park. Fort Fun. This isn't a park that gets talked about often since its only got three roller coasters and none of them are that good. But trust me. Coasters are the last thing on your mind at this park. There's the alpine coaster thats absolutely insane and if you ride with no brakes, is a ton of fun. There's the zipline that gives you a great view of the German Mountains, and there's a ton of fun stuff including crazy slides, fun fun houses, and of course, the BBQ they hosted for us was just fantastic. I'd really make sure you check out when you're in Germany cause it really is a great park. Anyways, onto the photos.

After our Lights on Euro Sat ERT this morning, we had a very long bus drive. And yeah, I'm having a very healthy lunch of PrinGOALS!!!!!!!!

germantown.jpeg.ec95cc055e8085c7e005c98eeb15ba4b.jpeg

Ooh. Driving through a cute little German town.

Are we really going to a theme park today?

fortfun2.JPG.e8b644f995516d0a8f7f9cff712560a8.JPG

Yeah. Todays park is this screwed up little park called Fort Fun.

devilsmine.jpeg.b0686f1bcb586f51c39fe6b7973ac79d.jpeg

All right. First up, lets get our Vekoma Roller Skater credit while we're here.

devilsmineline.jpeg.fd956d7edf31c1b67bfea1b27653a4f5.jpeg

Whoops. It appears we entered the Fun House by mistake.

devilsmineline2.jpeg.dfb9969b9cd4e1dc7f9137ad54a5434b.jpeg

Nope. Turns out that Devils Mine has the COOLEST LINE EVER!!!! Yes, that includes Dueling Dragons line. This is better. =)

devilsmine2.JPG.48a6df9fd62afb618c5047d67b114261.JPG

Dude, that line was better than an actual roller skater.

devilsmine3.JPG.69d29729dd4684cd910df4cf440088e4.JPG

WHOA!!! Look at the custom layout!!!!

devilsmine4.jpeg.65e6bf4a7c347e0fe5a47a6f24d2229b.jpeg

In the back seat, theres actually some ejector air on this Roller Skater. =)

devilsmine5.jpeg.d5d70e5448500a9f8020d9a99cefc0b5.jpeg

After the insane first drop, its mostly just helixes.

devilsmine6.JPG.c62bc50f7e082587d9cee6ecd4116f92.JPG

Still by far the best Vekoma Roller Skater I've ridden.

crazywashhouse.JPG.b6e1add0fd81cc1fb4ce16fac3e843b4.JPG

All right. Lets go check out their fun house.

crazywashhouse2.jpeg.139829f09a2e3210e8fabf12d02361c8.jpeg

Is there a roller skater at the end of this fun house as well?

crazywashhouse3.jpeg.ef47598255350d4fa21562666b7e8097.jpeg

Going crazy in the Crazy Washhouse!!!!

secretstageofhorror.JPG.88643919e28d76df59197b86a614598e.JPG

All right. Lets see just how scary their horror house is.

secretstageofhorror2.jpeg.a974cae1b34bf16bd277b333eb0db5c6.jpeg

This isn't scary. Go see my friends who work at Fright Fest and come back to me.

darkraver.JPG.62c387adf7d3c080bcac2ddf7175da92.JPG

I have no idea what this is. Lets find out and see if its cool.

darkraver2.JPG.4f9fc6703bc663e479efa7f6b6ade94c.JPG

DUDE!!!! IT'S AN INDOOR ROUND UP!!! THATS SO BADASS!!!!!

playgroundFORTFUN.JPG.2a0e294db80da7bfae720e01c42939ab.JPG

These things were designed for people of my size. =)

slideFORTFUN.JPG.45c4e7e19f26b944f8a2b342e8b9ced3.JPG

Ooh!!! More insane Slides of Death!!!! Must check out!!!!

slideFORTFUN2.JPG.ffd8b9f959fee241fd540aaa5b70fce9.JPG

No, we are not being immature right now. These were designed for us.

Yep, this slide was super fast and I flew off at the bottom.

wildwasserbahn.JPG.0513bbe33cb5a479e99f9a772898a40e.JPG

Hey, anyone in the mood to get wet?

wildwasserbahn2.JPG.56552109526af0cf2c92615b8a152f78.JPG

It was a really good log flume. The first drop was underground so there was an entire underground section, and it was just fun.

tomahawk.JPG.3b7dd4de07aa95608c001580971fb5b5.JPG

Dude!!! A park that has Magnum!!! Awesome!!!! It ran a good program and is themed to Native Americans!!!

slideFORTFUN5.JPG.9af2f6ac6b0e625e67cb4fa84f9b5b99.JPG

Hmm, do I want to take the stairs down or slide on down to the lower level? Gee, such a hard decision. =)

blueseamonster.JPG.b4a73d45b8ea77aa5a4e9e2d1e76b3e2.JPG

Hey Patrick!!! Its your favorite ride!!!! =D

marienkaferbahn.JPG.cca234e7851b9f7fdebd427c4ad52ea5.JPG

Ok, lets just get the Tivoli credit out of the way since its the only coaster not on our ERT schedule.

marienkaferbahn2.JPG.e28792b64cde424aee93e28cce9749ea.JPG

Hey, just be glad that this is the smallest coaster in the park.

marienkaferbahn3.JPG.59224a6477d58b5109657237d0601c99.JPG

You know these Tivoli coasters are just a ton of fun.

marienkaferbahn4.JPG.1c4a9e2f99cea0c64bf553106d9e96b0.JPG

THROUGH THE TREES!!!!!!

marienkaferbahn5.JPG.740a9ae6149e2432f00be40eb8aabbfb.JPG

Watch your head.

marienkaferbahn6.JPG.2a742843a8d5a2d9f9b708d85626a7f1.JPG

The operator was awesome, sending us around over and over and always giving us high fives.

speedsnake.JPG.c775aa1533cd41f9189bd3e412e81455.JPG

All right. This is the last coaster we need here.

speedsnake2.JPG.24337e8c4d2a9f77fb3e87f8d9b773f2.JPG

Ugh. Its a Vekoma Corkscrew.

speedsnake3.JPG.817bbce4d1ea745689474c17c4fd0e26.JPG

You know I've never ridden the Whirlwind model before and I've loved everything in the park so far. Maybe this'll be a fun ride.

speedsnake4.JPG.3a1dc49ee98c5532db8b86e075d47e82.JPG

HOLY CRAP!!! THIS RIDE IS HORRIBLE AND ROUGH AS HELL!!!!!

slideFORTFUN6.JPG.2697f908a7ae690f5d019982849144a8.JPG

You're gonna need some rope to get up to the top of the hill.

wildeagle.JPG.1ea753671bd3ca12cd09ff2ab46a26b0.JPG

Our ERT has begun, and first up, we'll be hitting up the parks Zipline. Wild Eagle.

wildeagle2.JPG.6322d8dfd4918aec407ba1f805188150.JPG

Lets get suited up for this thing.

wildeagle3.JPG.a6d509c95002da33f8a53c0afb287e87.JPG

This thing is PRETTY high up. Better not have a fear of heights.

wildeagle4.JPG.69721f94a3c0646ca7de45fb9b76fa01.JPG

While its not really scary, its very fast and very fun, giving you a great view of these German Mountains.

trapperslider.JPG.e19f785f8f6b74cd956b31482ce3d5f7.JPG

And now, we get to the parks star attraction. The Alpine Coaster.

trapperslider3.JPG.ccb74998eae7f8faee2f3d07ab5a6298.JPG

I'd never been on an Alpine Coaster, so this was a really exciting treat for me, especially after hearing that it is one of the better ones.

trapperslider4.JPG.b2a7b7e8b7f622dd735633c10675bd8e.JPG

"THIS IS F*CKING AWESOME!!!!!!"

trapperslider2.JPG.450df1eb51a485863d26524e1dfb665b.JPG

Hope you like lifthills, cause this ones 3.5 minutes long.

trapperslider5.JPG.e795f9c3c86e9f7ce1aa98e903e4983f.JPG

Its a long way down. Lets make this fun. =)

wildeagle5.JPG.0acdb6fd8668f3a8ce75d3dd054a94da.JPG

Hey guys!!! Hows it going!!?

trapperslider6.JPG.d69fd0547d53da4b4bdbf38d76d8a8af.JPG

Yeah. When you ride without any brakes, this thing is totally INSANE!!!!! (As seen by this blurry photo).

trapperslider7.JPG.fba5cfaae330bc3c7e9916c40713a1af.JPG

I'm gonna stay here for the rest of ERT.

horseshoeBBQ.JPG.e1fcd703502addc3c86745ddab014a76.JPG

ERT may be over, but now we get our Group Meal.

horseshoeBBQ2.JPG.f83abc0eb8bce856d653f41e514f7396.JPG

You'd think that you wouldn't be able to top ERT on an insane brakeless Alpine Coaster, but nope. Fort Fun topped it with our meal. Now normally they just give you food, but not here. They let us cook our own food. Not only did they let us BBQ an unlimited amount of meat, but they also gave us unlimited beer and sodas. Yeah. It was insane.

cocksauce.JPG.384cf3a0b023e68ea2db2da20b4d444a.JPG

Yes, I'd really like the juice from my cock on my meat please.

horseshoeBBQ3.JPG.e39b2bd3fd5f3d82588d30b743bb0d4d.JPG

Ugh, all this happiness just makes me want to kill myself.

horseshoeBBQ6.JPG.fe4c29f9e331b1716afb535112eb1e6f.JPG

Would you like your meat well done or burnt to a crisp?

hanging2.JPG.b7aa3a97651507155c393a8b58ece1e4.JPG

We have thrills, meat, women, and beer. The only thing missing from this Male Fantasy was violence. So we fixed that and hung Colin.

Is that part of the meat you're giving us Fort Fun?

After our amazing day at Fort Fun, we just had to get stuck behind the Ass-Man's truck. Thanks for reading. Heide Park will be next and please leave any comments you have.

Cook Your Own Awesome Meat is among the greatest things at a park EVER. More parks need this. Though the US is full of dopes that would incinerate themselves, so it will never happen here.

 

Fort Fun was a cool little park. Hope to visit it again some day.

Great you guys loved Fort Fun! The park itself is charming, but the most interesting part of it all is their Season Pas. For 48 euros you can visit all the CDA parks (all the Walibi's, Asterix Parc, some random French parcs) once for free, that's the best deal here in Europe I think!

 

By the way, sadly enough, the Magnum and Pirate ship are gone for the 2013 season. It's replaced by a Top Spin .

 

Thanks for your trip reports, fun to read!

All right. Moving onto the next park of the trip. After all the awesomeness of Europa Park and the fun and quirkiness of Fort Fun (Thanks for putting that on the TPR Front Page BTW), it was time to move onto the next park, Heide Park. While not quite as good as Europa Park, Heide Park was still a fantastic park with a great balance of things to do. It has great coasters with an Intamin Woody, a B&M Dive Machine, and an Intamin Launcher, great rides, and great theming. If any of you are in the area of Northern Germany, I highly suggest you go and check out Heide Park as it really is a great park that you all should visit at some point in your lives.

hotelportroyal.JPG.d0ec12e6f7243be8958ec3f49293c7fd.JPG

All right. We have arrived at the very awesome Hotel Port Royal for the night.

hotelportroyal2.JPG.c0c28cdf689d1daf34f1cc1d221fd19e.JPG

No seriously. This place is so well themed that the toilets are well themed.

heidepark.JPG.dc9f770f73e3298f6268aab8928ec83a.JPG

Check out the awesome view from our hotel room.

krake.JPG.b605bbe854fb22e6121143bdbda90482.JPG

Why yes. I would like to start out the morning on Heide Park's newest coaster, Krake.

krake2.JPG.62b217bb0115545f0a7e41f36bbee2c9.JPG

Krake is one of the new B&M Dive Machines.

krake3.JPG.7fb361168e4f0ce5e0258a520d050ce4.JPG

Yeah. This isn't quite as good as Sheikra.

krake4.JPG.99f904a8ce663f041a82245449fd4f89.JPG

But its still a really fun ride and a great fit for Heide Park.

desertrace.JPG.f066a1e14c76726bdc5f229d9a7140f5.JPG

Our Morning ERT continued on Desert Race.

desertrace2.JPG.88537d5be897813a20d072df0c34ad4b.JPG

Desert Race was a very interesting ride.

desertrace3.JPG.8c845ce26b8805bbcbf2ed685e8f7416.JPG

It was fun and had a lot of twisty bits, but there was just something that felt missing, but I don't quite know what. But hey, its still a really fun ride.

limit.JPG.2b46eab16f59b065a9a9af46894dfcdb.JPG

Yeah. Lets just get this out of the way.

limit2.JPG.391a63bf8e40982094b8483611762657.JPG

Hey, you knew that we were gonna ride this sooner or later.

limit3.jpeg.f82b13d2316acf21d848155567dff9f0.jpeg

While it wasn't one of the worst SLCs ever, it certainly wasn't one of the best either.

schweizerbobbahnHEIDE.JPG.1425632f11b94cad5916514d3ef308f6.JPG

Well since the bobsled isn't on the the parks Flash Pass system, we decided to get that credit out of the way.

schweizerbobbahnHEIDE2.JPG.0351b93d6ff2b239f184b35ed93d9feb.JPG

Hey, these Mack Bobsleds are really fun rides.

schweizerbobbahnHEIDE4.jpeg.b2c9b9ed3e0ba55361731eb70834431f.jpeg

Hey, this bobsled was better than the one at Europa Park.

hotelportroyal3.JPG.a34f53348db85630bd6fc7351dadcb1a.JPG

Have to head on back to the hotel to grab something quickly. (Yeah. Thats our hotel. Nice, isn't it.)

collosusHEIDE.JPG.5995a3eb01a198c4abcd7d8448fee61f.JPG

Yeah. Its good. Really good.

bigloop.JPG.2205bba66fd817feec7c111da16b9ded.JPG

All right. Time for us to get yet another credit.

bigloop2.JPG.cb7886278181c51701e256bd6d063010.JPG

We were REALLY lucky to have fastpass for this ride since it not only had a long line, but was only running one train.

bigloop3.jpeg.572b687dd0ef194e3292edb4c49b0892.jpeg

And hey, it was running well. Smooth as glass.

What is it with all these European Parks having great powered coasters?

I see Cliff is going through withdrawls again. We better stop for more beer.

That kiddy coaster is only 100% politically correct.

Hey, the park actually has a really well themed Wild West Area.

All right. Who's the dumbass who thought it'd be a good idea to ride the log ride in this weather?

Ooh. Lets all slide down this twisted mess of slides.

All right. We're getting into Flat Ride land. They have a Top Spin, an Enterprise, a Round Up...

ladymoon.JPG.61ce02b7ba124678c943ceace7ed1b84.JPG

And this very bizarre flat ride that was a lot of fun.

Yes, I would like to slide down more of these twisted mess of slides.

Basic obstacles to get to the slide.

Warning. Your ass will catch on fire going down these slides.

slideHEIDE6.JPG.7b2fcde9fcf350869522116a637af814.JPG

Why can't any of our local playgrounds have slides like this?

collosusHEIDE3.JPG.37bfcc1a3978afa780b42492cfd63bbc.JPG

Dude, there are so many shots to get up here.

collosusHEIDE4.JPG.79eaf84ef904af602cab8c26ee31c8de.JPG

All that ejector air looks so beautiful.

Now you should really get an idea of just how big Krake's splash is.

Even the Big Loop shots are beautiful up here.

Anyone else wanna take a ride on the Kanalfahrt.

kanalfahrt2.jpeg.efc3daf14f576b680b8364bae241a76a.jpeg

Hey, this stupid boat ride takes us inside the Grottenblitz building. I'm really glad to see Heide Park really taking advantage of all that they've got.

collosusHEIDE5.JPG.0184f0a5e73334a1f5af649bc1d38ab5.JPG

And now we have Colossus ERT!!!!! =)

collosusHEIDE6.JPG.fc1a87ff3d6c21f864153047ee3ffaf9.JPG

It's not quite as good as El Toro, but this is still one of the best wooden coasters ever!!!

collosusHEIDE7.JPG.cf59d4178e1579c05bc5b09ad69ced47.JPG

I mean, just look at that airtime!!!! =)

collosusHEIDE8.JPG.dc533869ff186df7bcf9c34e9514f939.JPG

Towards the end of our ERT, the sky just opened up and it began to pour down on us.

collosusHEIDE9.JPG.98cc892e2768ac45597f640fa6027605.JPG

I got soaked and I loved it. Definetly one of the craziest ERT sessions I've ever experienced.

collosusHEIDE10.JPG.2a0e88021f74c71fbf794c3dacc085c4.JPG

Yeah, you can see all the rain in this picture.

dinner8.JPG.592fcad2800d15bb5ea6073fd7aa3527.JPG

And after our insane Colosus in the rain ERT, we went back to the hotel, warmed up, took a shower, and went down for a great dinner the hotel provided for us.

Whatever you've been drinking, thats where you pee. Funny thing is that I saw a urinal for cocktails, whisky, brandy, coke, wine, wasser, water, but there's no urinal for beer!!! Which means we're all screwed. Thanks for reading leave any comments you have, and Schlossbeck Photos will be up soon.

All right. Moving on with the trip. The next park on the trip that we decided to hit up was very interesting in the fact that its barely a theme park and has more in common with my local playground than a place like Disneyland. This park I'm talking about of course is Schlossbeck. The only reason this park gets mentioned on sites like RCDB is because of the kiddy coaster they have. But trust me, thats the most boring thing in the park. The real insanity of the park are the do itself attractions such as the boat jumping, the do itself zipline, the Luna Loop, and of course, all the crazy playground attractions that will sadly never be found in America. It makes me wonder how many small crazy parks like this exist throughout Europe but never get talked about on coaster sites since they lack a kiddy coaster like this one. Anyways, onto the photos.

schlossbeck.JPG.8633a6128478fe04d853b5233e2d3d09.JPG

Another day on the trip, another park to visit.

schlossbeck2.jpeg.753fab1ca81ae921e580fc90f7618873.jpeg

Today, we're starting out our morning at Schlossbeck.

schlossbeck3.JPG.8825a5963d937aa4dc7b193162544f59.JPG

Schlossbeck is a very bizzare park in the sense that its far more of a playground than an actual theme park.

coinhorse.jpeg.30f126952a96005e43a3525a31a6caa7.jpeg

I'm riding off on the horse to my happy ending, oh wait, I'm on a TPR Trip. My happy ending is already here.

familienachterbahn.JPG.0fff7eb3b72de7a988b0a8cb0816e2d2.JPG

All right. Time for us to get the only credit there is to get in this park.

familienachterbahn2.JPG.1c8d27868885d9f176194100776694cb.JPG

With the fact that they only have this little Tivoli as their only coaster, you'd think that this place was nothing more than just a credit whoring stop.

familienachterbahn3.JPG.aa9903226a291e7832da6e69f8fc0d26.JPG

Trust me, this is the most boring thing here. We're just getting the credit out of the way so we can get to all the good stuff. =)

boatjumping.JPG.b2a5c287355a67453a0f870b9ac1cf1b.JPG

Now that we've got the credit out of the way, we can focus on the real star attraction of the park. Boat Jumping.

boatjumping2.JPG.932dc1cae894f0d22ac4d9ddab6e8670.JPG

What is Boat Jumping, you may be asking? Well, first you get pulled up this spike backwards like a Boomerang...

boatjumping3.JPG.0fb0cd70de6ebf205ef4c3ceae69fbf8.JPG

Then you drop all the way down and fly off the track.

boatjumping4.JPG.bfbb5771d79c2a55fbd4424b4087e974.JPG

And SPLASH!!!!! Land straight into the water.

verticalslide.jpeg.9d4ee71b8cd0f20618996dbd09e59a1d.jpeg

Among the other bat-sh*t insane things they have here, they have a Vertical Slide.

verticalslide2.jpeg.529e29023944a45e8e83c0f86cab456b.jpeg

I really want to see these things popping up at more playgrounds.

slide2.jpeg.137501716d883a8bcd738a40858de9a7.jpeg

Make sure you don't run out of room and slide onto the main path. ;)

lunaloop.JPG.71ea047ca85f6f0907820ad9481e4429.JPG

Continuing the tradtion of crazy bizzare rides at Schlossbeck, we tried out this ride they call the Luna Loop.

lunaloop2.JPG.4c1002572b51303dc20003ba3d18ef12.JPG

You just get inside, go around on a track that just goes in a circle while you control the flipping.

wetndryslide.jpeg.9f0ff1722f3c6eac21af399bec35ae3a.jpeg

New at Schlossbeck were these Wet'N'Dry Slides.

wetndryslide2.jpeg.49a3bd18e76cbef51b551c3c03a353c1.jpeg

They weren't that crazy, but they were a lot of fun.

ziplineSCHLOSSBECK.JPG.bb5eaeaf1b6dae18ebe656af21ef3539.JPG

Now this self operated Zipline on the other hand, yeah. Its pretty crazy.

This haunted house wasan't that scary, though it was certainly...intersting.

Umm, guys....I think we're breaking the rules here.

Yeah. Boat Jumping is freaking awesome.

All right. After the insanity of Schlossbeck, we moved on to the next park of the trip, Movie Park Germany, which is just right down the street from Schlossbeck. This park, while not bad, I do have to admit was my least favorite park on the trip (But then again, its competing against parks like Europa Park and Heide Park, so thats not a fair statement.) The coaster collection is decent. It has some fun rides (Van Helsing), but almost nothing stands up, and the stuff that does stand out stands out for the wrong reasons (Bandit). On the bright side, the kids area were really well themed and really stood out as one of the best out there. All right, moving onto the photos.

movieparkgermany.JPG.34c7a783b9e7865fbf24614b0b956e84.JPG

After the insanity of Schlossbeck, we went for a 2 minute drive and were off to Movie Park Germany.

lunch23.JPG.26062545e4efaa44e956408c1a061e20.JPG

First off, lets get some freaking lunch!!! I'm starving!!!!

mpxpress.JPG.c79878ee073684b5ade8309f1a1fd96c.JPG

Oh joy. Our first credit here is an SLC.

mpxpress2.JPG.be64f3329d65ba8a6c0523029dcbaa09.JPG

To be fair, it wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting.

mpxpress3.JPG.f9a966400096d5ebadbf2af4b4fda65e.JPG

"Whats that? The SLC isn't painful enough? Well, then let me kind enough to show you the way to our next ride." *evil laugh*

bandit.jpeg.bcf7bb6e314564e70c7fdc2e33ebaa34.jpeg

If MP-Xpress didn't hurt you, allow Bandit, this hunk of sh*t to do the job for you.

bandit2.jpeg.b464ab4ad36676f328117fd14f2f7e86.jpeg

This ride shuffles like hell, tries to grate your ass like cheese, and continously smashes the back of your head into a hard plastic unpadded headrest violently throughout the entire ride.

bandit3.jpeg.0cde05f6a47357894d3dae85535c6378.jpeg

It seriously ranks up there as one of the worst coasters I've ever ridden.

sign244.jpeg.f5ba6173f002f98443b70b5a61e72b93.jpeg

nickelodeonarea.jpeg.401dc3b4a5abfa118d649d62314cfa23.jpeg

All right. Time to check out the parks Nickelodeon Area and get all the kiddy credits there.

backyardigans.jpeg.239210255c7f0854e047fdfad167a707.jpeg

All right, lets get started with the Vekoma Roller Skater.

backyardigans2.jpeg.5eef77095ce14f69a542600fd3345260.jpeg

After Bandit, this felt like one of the best rides ever.

backyardigans3.JPG.f42d5769936e0b03a3546338e5b0434c.JPG

Hey, its a Roller Skater. And like all roller skaters, is fun.

ghostchasers.JPG.b49f00c0a1dbfc649e54f135217beb3d.JPG

Up next was the Wild Mouse, Ghost Chasers.

ghostchasers3.jpeg.83bf300805b8f0d9f91c2d46120ac0a2.jpeg

Now I know that a Wild Mouse is not a kiddy coaster, but its still in the kids area, which makes this kids area pretty damn cool.

ghostchasers2.jpeg.02ffea4e8d6d5fb449e4a54340a712fc.jpeg

Dude, this thing was completely trimless. I actually got some good airtime on the main drop.

dorasbigriveradventure.jpeg.3df65ec11da50a2a59c19afaba1c7e25.jpeg

Anyone interested in the Dora the Explorer Log Flume?

wristband3.JPG.61a6e2f8536456dfefecc0d0d700fe2c.JPG

You see this wristband, this is the parks All you can Eat Pass, or as I like to call it, the Gluttony Pass, which allowed us to get as much food as we wanted. And it rocks!!!

jimmyneutronsatomicflyer2.jpeg.8a32bee48f959205b647dfda4fce90f0.jpeg

Yep, now we're gonna ride the Inverted Roller Skater as well.

jimmyneutronsatomicflyer.jpeg.16d0c91ea514877ffd18889ab5d7e88c.jpeg

"Ugh. Sick of all these god damn Vekomas."

jimmyneutronsatomicflyer3.jpeg.4b1bcccbaa02a2905db8ba75dc1e309d.jpeg

Dude, this thing was awesome. Smooth, fun, overall very good ride. =)

iceageadventure.jpeg.7ee019791f66d0ad6bfb47ad03c86a6a.jpeg

We just had to check out their Ice Age Dark Ride. I mean just look at it!!! Look at how high quality these animatronics are!!!

iceageadventure2.jpeg.dde9d2a8207d853c2fe2bad98f19e795.jpeg

"Ooh!!! Your ass is so tender!!!" =)

iceageadventure3.jpeg.525d7c81dc7bfd05a7213a7ae6ac83a7.jpeg

All right. After the ice, there comes this funky surprise drop...

iceageadventure4.jpeg.db855ae9fda1de827461f7dde3a9b2dc.jpeg

And boom!!! Just like that!!! Tropical Paradise!!!!

mysteryriver.jpeg.83141538aa59750be2cd951951196abd.jpeg

Their rapids ride was on crack!!! The ride is themed to fairies, it has no drops, but the entire river flows at like 20 mph and it feels like it'll soak you at any possible moment!!!

alienencounter.jpeg.bea8386be5957dcd912bbc6530d4f939.jpeg

And yeah. We had to check out their more well known water ride. Alien Encounter.

alienencounter2.jpeg.55f2e9ae9f286d10efc2840a263e0f5f.jpeg

It was a fun ride and all, but the water is just disgusting. Worst water in any water ride I've been on.

movieparkgermany2.JPG.3814749bb75ed34907129601cff6ad03.JPG

Oops. Looks like went through a wormhole back home.

pierpatrol.JPG.36b7500d08b11c67790db3c746814dc3.JPG

Hey, this water whip ride was a lot of fun!!! I really hope to see these pop up in more parks.

movieparkgermany3.jpeg.25db84d1f94f6cde4306c93d143d20d1.jpeg

"No!!!! Don't eat me!!!! I'm not included on the All you Can Eat Pass!!!!!"

crazysurf.jpeg.82339addc6df0de38e29cb2d51686a3b.jpeg

This may sound weird to say, but this is by far the worst Disk-O I've ever ridden.

crazysurf2.jpeg.a5f8fc1d12499f8f8de86ae520a2fe30.jpeg

I know its weird how a Disk-O can be horrible. I mean its just a Disk-O. Well this Disk-O is rough as hell, vibrates a ton, gives you an unpleasent ass massage, and felt like there were bumps and jolts in it.

closedline.JPG.dde4862851ae7132569fcf5f51e883e4.JPG

If theres one thing about the park that pissed me off, it had the La Ronde rule of closing all the lines before the park closed. Not cool.

hollywoodfilmmuseum.jpeg.7f1dcb6d58c8e16fbca5e78a3fd560c8.jpeg

Well everything else is closed. You wanna check it out?

dinner9.JPG.e23def8422e3303af0cf56a74fa0c106.JPG

Well, we still had an hour till our ERT and all the rides were closed. So we just hung out in the cafe and took good advantage of our Gluttony Pass.

vanhelsingsfactory.JPG.124675d69a19644084d22e7093f54b84.JPG

All right. Our ERT started out with us getting on their newest coaster, Van Helsing's Factory.

vanhelsingsfactory2.jpeg.a7328d0b25f6044b5cd06a5e4eaee9d7.jpeg

Ooh. Nice theming in the line.

vanhelsingsfactory3.jpeg.e79bc76a93fe95ccea5e570aca4a6226.jpeg

The ride was ok. There wasn't too much to it. I know it has some REALLY strong laterals. Strong to the point that some people thought they were too strong. I personally loved them, but more importantly, I felt that the ride was too short. It ended just as it was starting to warm up. Oh, and this'll scare you in the exit.

highfall.jpeg.59ca5325172cc75ed0b4fe7822b539bf.jpeg

We also had ERT on High Fall. Which is indeed an Acrophobia Clone.

highfall2.jpeg.eaf66e28d1b2450298a0c29aec0015c2.jpeg

THIS THING IS F*CKING INSANE!!!!!!

highfall3.JPG.9bda33b3dbff061a87d29748887b1ac7.JPG

Really hoping that more stand up floorless drop towers pop up in the future. Thanks for reading and leave any comments you have. Phantasialand Photos will be up next.
