Recommended Posts

So this weekend I had the opportunity to visit Holiday park and see what was new for 2014.

 

Sky Scream is the new big ride for this year, but the park has also added some small things which are pretty awesome.

 

This Premier Rides Launched coaster goes 55meters high, has a top speed of 100km/hour and includes 3 launches (forward and backwards)

For those that have been to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom it might look and feel very very similar to Superman: Ultimate Flight .

 

The park also updated their waterski stunt show which is now named: Hollywood's Talking Dead.

The darkride Burg Falkensteing has live scare actors in it everyday from 13 hours

 

One more awesome thing, they have added a fastlane system at the park for their major attractions.

This includes unlimited rides on: Sky Scream, Expedition GeForce, Wickie Splash (the re-themed devils water ride), Donnerfluss and the Free Fall Tower.

 

Sky Scream appeared to be a hit with everybody, fun ride and a great addition to the park.

I really like how this is a plopsa park that caters for all ages and not just small kids and their parents.

 

And then there is Expedition GeForce. Still an awesome coaster that is a lot of fun.

 

During this visit I focused on Sky Scream and GeForce so here are some of the pictures I took:

 

Here is the Sky Scream POV:

Is that a piece of Super Wirbel that has been left behind?

 

The dimensions of Sky Scream are the same as for Superman Ultimate Flight at SFDK but they look different. Is that an illusion or are the coasters exact copies?

 

Great report, thanks Hanno!

Great photos! I'm happy that you enjoyed your visit at my local park For people who come visit the park from far away, the Holiday Express pass is really worth it I think, but for those of us like me who know where to go at which time it's not necessary at all, especially because crowds at the park always look more than they usually are.

 

The live actors aren't scary at all, and there are only 3 or so inside the castle (at least it was the case when I visited the park last year) and the world famous BOOB scene was taken out. The woman is not undressing herself anymore Sorry folks, but maybe this is just temporary???

 

However, the park improved a lot thanks to Plopsa, and the mixture of thrill and family rides is just amazing. I'm really excited about how the park will look like in let's say 10 years or so. If they constantly invest, the park will be a Plopsafantastic park here in Germany.

Thanks for the PTR! Can't wait for my visit in June. Since I'm only going to have about 5 hours in the park I am definitely going to splurge on the express pass! Do you know if you merge in the station and get to choose your row, are assigned, or get to sit before turnstiles are open?

The express lane has a separate entry point to the station and you basically get to sit where you want before the turnstiles are opened for the other people (or at least that's how it looked like during my visit)

Thanks for the excellent photos, the new coaster looks so much better than the Maurer Sohne skyloops.

 

Love they have fast passes now, I'm very tempted to drop by, but GeForce has a habit of breaking if I even think of going there. I fear I'll just get another evac credit if I go.

Wow, that sounds like an easy way to get some great rides on GeForce. Thanks Hanno!

^Maybe, the trains seem quite "tall" so it is possible that it isn't quite hearlined. Still, I'm not sure if, at that speed, it will make much of a difference (unlike blue fire's roll)
