Yes, it was her first Disko and she loved it! Too much spinning at that park for me. Where were the pictures of the dead rats?!!?

 

Sadly my camera was left at the bottom of the slide! But no one wants to see pictures of my rolls squeezing out of that thing

Some great on-ride pics in there Jake - I think I was too nervous to take my camera on anything but the tamest kiddie coasters! I had a lot of fun at Bon Bon Land, including figuring out how to properly unbalance the spinning mouse for a very intense ride.

 

Nice pictures. For those who rode it, how do these zamperla Giant Discoverys compare to Huss's Giant Frisbees?

They are fantastic, felt very high and fast and plenty of airtime at the top!

Update time!

 

Our quick trip down to Germany brought us to Hansa Park. Honestly,this was the park I knew the least about beforehand and wasn't too sure about it and therefore, it was my least anticipated park. Little did I know that it is AWESOME and was probably one of my favorite days!!!

 

On to the photos

Welcome to Hansa Park!

02.thumb.JPG.169243827182c849c1c93499ee49f6f9.JPG

The park gave us lots of goodies...always a nice touch

03.thumb.JPG.866f126463cae198131e86b35e786c38.JPG

Printed sign? Yup these guys tried to put on a nice show for us :)

04.thumb.JPG.d6e9ed627f9da1c067f72ce5fbaf2773.JPG

The park is interesting in that the park opens at 9, but the rides open at 10. Also, customer flows for the date each day. Awesome.

05.thumb.JPG.5894e8b26cd2f73d8def9436dec74619.JPG

The park is just beautiful.

06.thumb.JPG.d66e37def0e8954c420e6a6380947d4d.JPG

Our morning started off with the park's awesome indoor/outdoor coaster, Fluch von Novgorod!

07.thumb.JPG.34d6cd3ea3bccb551057a82a8a8af5ca.JPG

The queue is creepy...

08.thumb.JPG.d75a3fc829317570ab006a523fb1dfaa.JPG

Cool effects

09.thumb.JPG.105386d392a290ac25d667da313d54a4.JPG

And this is all you see before you ride! Impressive theming once the ride begins.

10.thumb.JPG.38f909aa28cb14700730567543834c95.JPG

Even better? You can ride a slide down the exit instead of taking the stairs.

11.thumb.JPG.f34965975b122afee2bc38c812144cf2.JPG

Sexy Gerstlauer track for the nerds

12.thumb.JPG.c9d0242a367ba9686ce1587f2c0ca259.JPG

The airtime hill provided airtime...

13.thumb.JPG.08bec7f8689ad46cab452e1cb8eb2f74.JPG

And the turns were fun too

14.thumb.JPG.6269319f7d2472f55dc8dcb52658c90c.JPG

The solo inversion is nicely done, kinda Cheetah Hunt style.

15.thumb.JPG.a22a52f9ccb25f10d4d16d5a79690534.JPG

Another round of riders go!

16.thumb.JPG.7a69159718265d15f8297f4b8656b258.JPG

The ride did surprise me a bit though. It was fun! Especially the launch was quick and the indoor parts.

17.thumb.JPG.1cfb9ea96e918885217dca6512f68f01.JPG

Once the park opened, we began to wonder. Getting eaten by an animal!!! Nessie was fun and I'll have more pics of it later.

18.thumb.JPG.9447d7d719d67f72464a69ed2ce4c4a2.JPG

Our first drop was the insanely long roller skater.

19.thumb.JPG.64969dd9baf20e186fd9d4ddf8088671.JPG

Through the loop!

20.thumb.JPG.d111dca9eb241fa42ee71e76e650a618.JPG

We got a Nessie train to go by as we went through!

21.thumb.JPG.215545f81167d5bfd0bf1d5b62a6353b.JPG

Next up was the killer mouse, or so we thought.

22.thumb.JPG.ebc0f126e2b642c762e762f2fa0d4e30.JPG

It turns out it has breaks now! We didn't die.

23.thumb.JPG.3b812fe62b36dbebb2f562ef2db9b199.JPG

Last was the new kiddie coaster...which was awesome! It had a mini dark ride section to start

24.thumb.JPG.739ff65b2d6f0071dfcff7b6eba14ba9.JPG

And the theming outdoors was certainly impressive.

25.thumb.JPG.67949b13036dd5456a5dcaa5d7d4f513.JPG

Doing coaster stuff!

26.thumb.JPG.28a69fc522c73e8cd68f12a0770d23a7.JPG

Do you think KT liked it?

27.thumb.JPG.07fb8d614b156af21acdd967eddf3297.JPG

For the nerds, again.

28.thumb.JPG.69795e5ecc45f6104295f8cfdaafbb89.JPG

One last overview. Just can't believe how nice this place is.

29.thumb.JPG.bde79399b50ce8289f13b786d892c37c.JPG

Parks look just like this in America, right?

30.thumb.JPG.23818ee5f6070e6e8b41c439f513432c.JPG

Oh yeah, the rare bell ride was running! Didn't have the patience to wait in line though (it was the only ride with one!)

31.thumb.JPG.5f5f122e29b9f19408199913e78bb691.JPG

More TPR members enjoying the awesome new kiddie coaster.

32.thumb.JPG.14ef42c0edf6357e0303a071c6b17ae0.JPG

Another park, another giant bouncy thing to kill yourself on.

33.thumb.JPG.9f9a8de83aa3e497d8bb8dfc39ed1353.JPG

My favorite part is going down.

34.thumb.JPG.ed5ff8922ee381587d799ecd8d2d9529.JPG

Smells like a new coaster over here

35.thumb.JPG.27857300a149110a825910af4b1cf185.JPG

The park is kind of on the sea! Germany's only one?

36.thumb.JPG.ba0617e620b74545785afc10ea94df62.JPG

We also gave the double bayern curve a courtesy ride.

37.thumb.JPG.eb4881fd4af4efe33c36f42337d7155f.JPG

I love slides.

38.thumb.JPG.9ffce3bdb1a672cf99c6f067ec6b1274.JPG

How about we cook our own breadstick? BEST PARK ATTRACTION EVER

39.thumb.JPG.6bcffe2e1d712d5c92c65f01c68967a7.JPG

Back to the coasters...thread the loop! This seem to happened quite a lot.

40.thumb.JPG.6a72aa4b7115a8000098a7b80e13dac2.JPG

Airtime!

41.thumb.JPG.985c30a3ad86d3f30bed3b8247d54f81.JPG

Take a break for a crepe (see what I did there)

42.thumb.JPG.fd1fcc81247a7c5035a37329ca0f1f5e.JPG

But seriously, such yumminess. Cinnamon and bread yo

43.thumb.JPG.3e6bd98ffa3eb8796fc112d1516cee59.JPG

This is what my meal voucher got me. This trip had SOOO much good food!!!

44.thumb.JPG.4deb994815ead33910279392db2d6bc6.JPG

We finished the day with a ride up the observation tower.

45.thumb.JPG.f52ab1f0df6a0f8b3649d32813fb115e.JPG

And a look over to the other side.

46.thumb.JPG.f1f086cc81a7566f13151cbb3101b53f.JPG

Found these in the gift shop. Awesome!

47.thumb.JPG.b7146b85115018982af5da954362fd7a.JPG

Just kidding, we rode Nessie one more time before heading out. Great day! Next up is LegoLand Billund!!!

I thought it was funny, to myself, that so many people were getting a bit of "opera" thrown at them

in the dark ride section of Fluch. Probably from The Ring Cycle by Wagner too, lol.

Nice Photos Jake. I must admit, Hansa Park really exceeded my expectations, which considering how high my expectations were for the park, really surprised me. Looking foreword to seeing your Legoland Photos.

I think all of the ice cream photos are on my phone. Whoops. Should probably check to see what ones I have on there for each park to include in my report.

 

Legoland tomorrow!

Next we moved on to Western Denmark and started our 3 day stay with Legoland Billund! This is the original park and my second Legoland after the new one in Florida. This place (like most parks in the region) is in the middle of nowhere but still gets huge crowds! And I can see why...the park was really nice and had a lot of cool rides.

 

On to the photos! I think this only marks 1/3 of the trip

01.thumb.JPG.77fa1a9f4745ec26cee337fa857b551b.JPG

Welcome to Legoland!

02.thumb.JPG.cc94b77d11c9fcd32756ba65630f369b.JPG

The Lego figures start outside the park entrance. Yes we are in Denmark!

03.thumb.JPG.e82cea6a97867119d4ba07c1a922f4f9.JPG

Our day started off with ERT on Polar X-Plorer!

04.thumb.JPG.2c93fecbdcbe98c0ff049643b3fa68d4.JPG

Thank goodness we don't have to wait in that.

05.thumb.JPG.4b35ccb1a2007e59fb5cf5304e999963.JPG

The first train of riders takes off!

06.thumb.JPG.9a3edbed87a95766793f875be4bc385c.JPG

And here we go!

07.thumb.JPG.3b1b814ef3594ba8ca8eebd52dba0575.JPG

Love the mid ride drop scene!!!

08.thumb.JPG.cae1833f056559cfed16a2da3e65784f.JPG

First drop fun. This is going to be a kid's ride right?

09.thumb.JPG.4d5ba4540f5eabe27ace442918cdf80f.JPG

Nope! This coaster had airtime and some fun G's!

10.thumb.JPG.6fa85be5dc3d2026fd37f110f4f7b004.JPG

Airtime curve through the rocks!

11.thumb.JPG.5c8d9b6e3b3a70b9575ebe1721df3795.JPG

The ride has a peaceful ending with some Lego animals.

12.thumb.JPG.af919670bd4aa3b5b69de1d759146712.JPG

You can see most of the attraction from up here.

13.thumb.JPG.0acb900cd7c95361e06bf4bbebb75b6b.JPG

KT approved!

14.thumb.JPG.13d24db6102bf03d64603c13df45edce.JPG

Ready guys?

15.thumb.JPG.06ca1b58329d01d86c7fde5e11061df9.JPG

Helix fun! It was actually forceful :)

16.thumb.JPG.5cde407df75539d325580cec43bbfa2a.JPG

The brake run is next to a penguin exhibit! Take that Antarctica

17.thumb.JPG.76ae60a2d6075276a381a6aa2a83b7a2.JPG

Next up, the park took us to Ghost to be first in line for this new attraction.

18.thumb.JPG.f27ef1c01e97aab15b3e302d9961d854.JPG

The queue is a huge walk thru area with some cool scenes!

19.thumb.JPG.ce12906e3cc6c507ce1bf4398ac6e302.JPG

The mirror maze was super long and confusing!!! best one I have done

20.thumb.JPG.b922ca6a6da7181edf30b6e29865fdd9.JPG

The actual ride was pretty short, but a cute little ride/drop

21.thumb.JPG.dff6629bd943a5db886676a98fa2b435.JPG

Credit time

22.thumb.JPG.74eaa60b255f082d4c09461769bfa03f.JPG

Typical Lego mouse. Be prepared for a squeeze larger riders!

23.thumb.JPG.e01ff4e679a9f7e504c701f9b725ae2e.JPG

In typical TPR trip fashion, we were handed express passes

24.thumb.JPG.f56e59ef75014f2df07c8a3d56e905f6.JPG

Dragon time

25.thumb.JPG.c709809dac4f9c81840aac5ed05ff800.JPG

Includes your typical awesome theming and show scenes

26.thumb.JPG.83930e40d3f9a5345ee49cfac75f0a6f.JPG

The ride is pretty well hidden, but fun for what it is.

27.thumb.JPG.24fb441c948a3c2f765ad9e34fa13c53.JPG

How about a boat ride?

28.thumb.JPG.2d28bd2d7cd14e55b8efd83d64c07b5f.JPG

The loading dock.

29.thumb.JPG.9c9694fa024bf19c2678499571b75e4a.JPG

Bigger than Disneyland's castle?

Turtles!

31.thumb.JPG.521cce0b8c570b25e474fe8cf391faab.JPG

Remind anyone else of Pirates?

32.thumb.JPG.80f20c112af57ae6382e99404e95d83e.JPG

Just a shirtless guy taking a shower.

Love the lego fries!!!

35.thumb.JPG.b5a400d3783b8993e89ea23b6b75bb82.JPG

Another wonderful buffet in Scandi ;)

36.thumb.JPG.38d1261eaef545547059ce9b85fe2452.JPG

They do have an observation tower but we passed

37.thumb.JPG.ac16abed26acc8c3489d664f1241bc0a.JPG

The Legoland hotel is right on site, if you feel like selling your limbs for a stay

38.thumb.JPG.6d50c7fee3e6150d728fcbb5b7a96eab.JPG

Driving school is such a neat idea.

39.thumb.JPG.4de5d5651a8577f8c271833a5ecd9691.JPG

But Sealife is included in admission!

40.thumb.JPG.0bdbe5a9c930617cd02d1b75cbe5861f.JPG

They have legos and fish. Winning!

41.thumb.JPG.58327c9afc48e966e9b23b265d0b2f74.JPG

Luckily we did not get crabs.

42.thumb.JPG.8a3524be69adbc084351c64a701b8722.JPG

Another park, another open fire.

43.thumb.JPG.08b5c1ec87dbc870e3986d78b3642668.JPG

The log flume looked rather wet...

44.thumb.JPG.cdfebf0ad4ad13ece87d69c385898a32.JPG

Thoughts confirmed.

45.thumb.JPG.307335f908e02c531cb850f8842aac01.JPG

They had another unique water ride in the form of a rapids ride with vertical lift and drop. I opted to remain dry

46.thumb.JPG.6974e95a8740ec21d20e9358f753dd5f.JPG

Should I go for the 10 scoop ice cream???

47.thumb.JPG.7e6c9de8abfff73bf5d92ae4e627ced9.JPG

Back over at Polar X-Plorer, still looking good.

48.thumb.JPG.6e413c62c2b9c89d08d1fd12bfd5027f.JPG

It was time to create a robo coaster ride!

49.thumb.JPG.9ca87bc20ba26f6d8d8d123c6de20832.JPG

Insane flipping in nonsensical directions happens here

50.thumb.JPG.ec0b757e148ca3af043790bb20448555.JPG

One last look at the loading area. There was 2, so 8 arms total. Line moved pretty quick!

51.thumb.JPG.3e95f10792029b9b82ca1ee9bc6ebe26.JPG

We did use our pass for another ride on Polar X-Plorer. Awesome coaster and I hope to see more!!!

52.thumb.JPG.bcabe932149e6d575a2b70e02a5a7417.JPG

It was time for the TPR Fire Academy showdown!

53.thumb.JPG.8c08987bef3f4dba32af7600197fbf9d.JPG

The competitors take their marks...

54.thumb.JPG.e1f19f5c42d546fd43a3246f9d12ff81.JPG

and they are off!

55.thumb.JPG.323e7a87bc614706da6b699284d846ee.JPG

PUMP PUMP PUMP!

56.thumb.JPG.15dd77f43e443bc4a0a1363cc607e543.JPG

The winners...

57.thumb.JPG.7876b980d80b548d2a27cb63916d0947.JPG

...and the LOSERS

58.thumb.JPG.ff01d5dcbfb062d4215634c53797f3d6.JPG

This is Thad. He sucks and so does his trip report.

59.thumb.JPG.632bfe8f8d285839bcb5f90029b2a6a8.JPG

The next round takes their place

60.thumb.JPG.8fa45d79d8f59a2b596a4be5f93ba163.JPG

Run through the gates!

61.thumb.JPG.27d7461c5769ba65e8584929650367b8.JPG

Who can pump the hardest?

62.thumb.JPG.044def8648e30039b17bf52586fe60e4.JPG

Apparently these guys

63.thumb.JPG.23c33c3c326481d9ffdc126ffb70516a.JPG

The rest of our visit was spent with a nice stroll around MiniLand. DONG

64.thumb.JPG.08e311a16ef262d7d0ffc9ba60b44974.JPG

Not sure which countries these are...

65.thumb.JPG.660ae4653a5fd96e14ae5d1aef85c807.JPG

...but they sure look nice.

66.thumb.JPG.d80f22c14e1b2995057567fa3bba1c05.JPG

Airplane nerds rejoice...

67.thumb.JPG.8578808f4ee365567b174eff1e5a8588.JPG

Yup, this is pretty much what Europe looks like.

68.thumb.JPG.043b5cb5868f9a4b2f46cbc4840e32bf.JPG

Beautiful.

69.thumb.JPG.093a8b3a48b90d6344bb44514bab94e2.JPG

The working water lock elevator thingy actually worked and was super cool.

70.thumb.JPG.95366b94f3d1b9ea5f2d97e67d3c930f.JPG

And I'll leave you with one last shot. Thanks for looking! Next up, Djurs Sommerland for some Intamin goodness!

Great photos again Jake. I loved Legoland. By far and this park just managed to take a giant dump over Windsor and make it look like crap!

 

I will say even though everyone loves it the Fire Academy almost gave me a heart attack! Polar X-Plorer was just all kinds of awesome and totally surprised me, I really loved that ride.

IMG_2472.thumb.JPG.bbbc745fccd067a588c51c6a1acf2ef1.JPG

This is my best memory of that day though. "Wake up Jake!"
