Part One: Halloween in Bobbejaanland

 

This is my first trip report I'm writing and my English isn't perfect, so don't mind any spelling mistakes.

 

Today, I decided to spend an afternoon at Bobbejaanland. The weather was good but kids have vacation, so the park was pretty crowded. The most wait times on the most popular rides were between 30 and 60 minutes. For the mazes, you had to wait about 30 minutes. I didn't do all the rides because I didn't had time to do them all, so I do not have pictures from everything.

Now, let's go to the pictures.

 

The first thing I did was 'The Doll Factory', a maze themed in hospital style. It's pretty scary if they send you in on your own.

Then I went to the Typhoon, a Gerstlauer Eurofighter. It is quite rough if you are sitting in the first row. 7/10

Up next was the Dreamcatcher. 6/10

Here is a simulation I made of how this coaster was when it opened (it was called 'Air Race back then.)

 

After that, I went to Oki Doki, the kiddie coaster of the park. It has some air time only if you're on the back row. 5/10

The next maze that I did was Sonar. This is the newest maze. It is themed like a submarine and all the people on board are infected with a virus.

Then I went to Sledgehammer and Naga Bay. This coaster was rethemed during last winter, therefore it was called 'Dizz'. 5/10

I ended my day with the last maze 'Bazaar Bizarre', a mirror maze full of clowns. Before you enter, you need to put on 3D glasses because there are some 3D paintings on the walls and the clowns have 3D paint on their costumes and faces.

Here are some pictures of the scarezones:

zone 1: Plaza de Los Muertos

IMG_20171102_140134.thumb.jpg.2c8baa79de057e8f41726d8c399f5029.jpg

zone 2: Haunted Woods

The third zone 'Childhood Fears' is only open when the park is open until 9 PM (not today). You need to walk through Kinderland, where actors are dressed up like big babies, toys, bears, ... It is everything but a classic maze or scarezone and very funny.

Two girls are dancing on the stage. If the lights are out and the black lights are on, the only thing you see are the dancers and 'whatever you do, don't fall asleep'

 

The Aztek Express was closed due to the accident last saturday (If you don't know what happened, click here.)

I still don't understand how you can fall in it.

Great report! Bobbejaanland has always looked like a fascinating park because of the oddball theming.

 

Dizz's track looks very odd for a Maurer spinner. The track is a lot beefier than their other spinners. I took a look on RCDB, and their other ones doesn't have the extra spine. Does anyone know why this installation specifically may have it?

Part 2: Disneyland Paris: The Season of the Force

 

I went to Disneyland Paris on Monday and Tuesday. It was quite calm in the parks. Most wait times were under 30 minutes, except Crush's Coaster (about 50 minutes.) Around 10 am, it started to snow for a couple of hours. All the rides remained open. Around 8.30 pm, it started snowing again. It was still snowing when we drove back home the next day! On Tuesday, Indiana Jones was closed due to the snow.

 

Because it is Season of the Force, you could find some recreations of vehicles from Star Wars movies in the Walt Disney Studios Park. At closing time, there was an "intergalactic celebration" on the Tower of Terror and 45 minutes later Disney Illuminations in the Disneyland Park.

 

I didn't plan to make a trip report, so I do not have a lot of pictures. (Actually, I only took pictures because it was snowing.)

Before the show started, it looked like the hotel was still "open"
