Great Yarmouth and Joyland

38-flag.thumb.jpg.1e5b4e91cc9af9b688544c51514f5db3.jpg

We got Nigel something for the coach

37-goldenticket.jpg.23f2c377b17b2a7287dd6366cee6fece.jpg

"I got a golden ticket!"

36-james.jpg.44e50fa64460fc6694df53f42d850dc6.jpg

James won a prize

A horse racing game

Another view of the Roller Coaster

33-mature.thumb.jpg.220797ec92759cd53817c7dd43ebe8fb.jpg

Suprisingly they let us in, even without a "more mature paying person"

32-slides.jpg.38e85d9b9762678580bd0d436dbbc798.jpg

Inflateble attractions were all along the beach

31-simulator.jpg.e9d8992ccdf7dd025d47b283269644a0.jpg

Perhaps the most realistic Arrow ride simulator. The car literally shook back and forth going up the lift hill

30-flume.jpg.c361f3e75bae96b43fb1f758df0e724b.jpg

This was an unusual "flume" ride in that it had no drops, and had clear water

01-joyland.jpg.7e743a06fde4e2d98cfd502d31a71e54.jpg

We left Joyland and headed to the pier

29-chris.jpg.c8cb66b6f5ec1e0a922d1e3a68a4d5e7.jpg

Designed for kids, of course

28-ride.jpg.5eee1a95d743c77b2a8a6da8f4991eaa.jpg

This was one of those "WTF" type rides

27-tubtwist.thumb.jpg.aaf6061c6a41b5f4469c41bac273f5a9.jpg

Tub Twist is a powered "Virginia Wheel" ride. It spins a lot

26-joyland.jpg.ccb7222b0602ab2f08d8488181ced4ba.jpg

Joyland is a small "kiddie park"

25-credit.jpg.6f0a93db84444198dceeb50eaae4b7dc.jpg

Time for a 'real' credit

24-hills.thumb.jpg.c1d63c36a69a34655fb2b3e80af44424.jpg

It's powered

23-snails.jpg.0773588754a412e5563d407a570d0955.jpg

The snails ride over at Joyland

21-golf.jpg.a210d19769bd7ddfc76b04ea304b6675.jpg

I wonder if Arnold Palmer actually endorses this mini-golf course

20-circus.jpg.2ca974134a98c66131bce94fff03612e.jpg

I thought this place had an Arrow multilooper

19-glow.jpg.434ed7ff3c011e24e5ac516b364c0b45.jpg

While there were no 3D effects, there were plenty of blacklight effects

18-3d.thumb.jpg.13672e5eaf32542d1efd24753b7add5c.jpg

Another "3D" attraction

17-hauntedhotel.jpg.43cb1ff35d2ed03340239a1a8a49664d.jpg

The Haunted Hotel was a funhouse type attraction

16-wackyworm.jpg.8a11e793ba4737801ac0ef01e736691b.jpg

As mentioned above though, the Wacky Worm was the main draw

15-drops.jpg.bb1bbda7795a5b4ea62cbf360e5a98b8.jpg

Some of the drops are fairly large

14-greenlight.jpg.1015ae126b97c0e568c6ebafc5af981d.jpg

Fortunately our brakeman did not run any red lights

13-tree.jpg.c92850d74092f771d69adee5313a2bb7.jpg

The inside of the facade does not reveal much, besides this tree

12-view.jpg.5077d98f09ac0faf27fa7c6b734c9c57.jpg

View from the top of the lift

11-lift.thumb.jpg.55c9c7c2333608c6a3b2e1d6b8f2ad9c.jpg

Even though it is a scenic railway, the ride uses a standard chain lift

10-litter.thumb.jpg.1c4d11fde9d69a07c7e795f79acbad25.jpg

We did not get the chance to litter

09-brake.jpg.4971b87dab71d175191519b668b89ab4.jpg

This is where the brakeman sits

08-push.jpg.82e38b5875b0f98fd2d3f67bb0c8809c.jpg

In addition, the ride ops have to regularly get out and push

07-track.jpg.2f1e423f5dfdacb6311a5d0db3c4822f.jpg

While Vekoma rides have an inch between the upstops and the track, this ride doesn't even have upstop wheels

06-rollercoaster.jpg.e5504519c9e951caea78cf8909d83079.jpg

Roller Coaster is an old Scenic Railway

05-onride.jpg.f513499ed10aadc623c98846efedefc4.jpg

Cha-ching!

04-wackyworm.thumb.jpg.4f96f9aa77fd7040213866ae8d418f6a.jpg

But what we were here for was the Wacky Worm!

03-pb.jpg.93c9aeac3d5fc0158d8fee5d385dc86d.jpg

It's a traditional sea-side amusement park

02-pleasurebeach.jpg.e5e1336c7091567284b3a35364b60844.jpg

Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach was our next stop.

Thorpe Park

 

I had visited Thorpe Park in the past, back in 1999. Back then, the park was a disappointment. All the rides kept breaking down, and the only true credit was X.

deadbird3.jpg.c59140d76e0761d1ae5868c6946a37dc.jpg

I wonder what's on the menu now?

deadbird2.jpg.fa7954f1679f5612c7d02c1b2abaaa39.jpg

deadbird1.jpg.07d2ae6aa77658bd5d852fa9455ec816.jpg

Of course, being an Intamin ride, it's not without a fatality

47-launch.jpg.532e6087577ef41df9814acdacfda282.jpg

Zoom zoom zoom!

46-stealth.jpg.9ec232eddd798cb781b61ef000c49ed4.jpg

Sorry, you can't ride yet. Some guy just took a picture and the ride went haywire

45-cameraofdoom.jpg.391996c272a06a7519178419775203aa.jpg

So far: One stabbing, a broken Intamin Rocket, a minor B&M inverted breakdown, a day without power, a dead bird...have I missed anything?

44-tpr.jpg.18c53133386a7eea239bdc5d3b0619f1.jpg

ERT on Nemesis and Stealth

43-seat.thumb.jpg.ef5c96c13e514a1a3b985efe130843fb.jpg

It's an Intamin ride. Anyone can fit on one, right?

41-poundit.jpg.211eb24ad1a6970f3cafdfda42b1de3c.jpg

"What was that?"

"Some naked guy with a hat on"

"What did he do?"

"He pounded me!"

40-waterrides.jpg.0aef66ed64be52d55a718312283a6515.jpg

Back in 1999, Thorpe Park was known for its water rides. Tidal Wave was still under construction at the time

39a-pound.jpg.a971e313269eadd1c731768f69472a58.jpg

Somebody looks like he was pounded

39-intamin.jpg.c10646bef0df12481a4595cd86e408d7.jpg

The sign of excellence

38-sadandpathetic.jpg.06d49076ebeb31f303ca017394369fae.jpg

Another ride on Colossus, this time through the "sad and pathetic" line

34-train.jpg.7e99921d9c66ff764ae75d78783525eb.jpg

Since there were no donkeys, we took the train back to the park. (I unintentially caught Stealth on the top-hat while taking this shot)

1436561410_33-g.jpg.6984a5f1524dfe7f47f8ca252b8bd2ef.jpg

Here's one for Elissa

32-cow.jpg.cfa7ccc26f3f9aecdee58ece43b80d18.jpg

We were unable to get our cow-tipping credit

31-cow.jpg.d3c851fa792a02897dc3cb2e94326e7e.jpg

This is where McDonalds comes from. Got milk?

30-park.jpg.132e4d10e2ff78e083589f0ffc374934.jpg

The park skyline

29-cows.jpg.adc238731c22c89631a994cdd64d5655.jpg

The farm has cows, sheep, and goats

28-train.thumb.jpg.7f93d5c65c60360469711d07e0222a47.jpg

27-dummies.jpg.b3e0b7f9a49c97e2a8a42801e914020d.jpg

These are the poor dummies that have to ride the coasters every morning

26-gap.jpg.0ac7ab5e8cd804b1150a0750ad20a208.jpg

The park has a train ride to the "Thorpe Farm"

25-dip.jpg.e5ea4d93a850f332007baea99ba367f1.jpg

The flume has a double dip drop

37-accident.jpg.c5462c238bfa6351649cc7a72e72ff01.jpg

Somebody had an accident on the flume ride

36-wetness.jpg.121bd78608d7a776e0695ab3c93c726f.jpg

You don't get very wet on this water ride

35-flume.jpg.b27b49b821cac82a59d7bd3129917157.jpg

This is the "Wildest ride in the wilderness". At least when Robb is on board.

24-flume.jpg.482d42818a2c17e3ba5f5432eef3a878.jpg

The flume was the same as it was seven years ago, only this time it didn't keep breaking down

23-swatter.thumb.jpg.eae6a32bf4538bfe2413ef7e3847c20d.jpg

The Sky Swatter was another S&S flat ride

22-carousel.jpg.0e32e8f8cee8a1375fc54b46128d04ae.jpg

Pay no attention to the people on the ride; the Carousel will be open later

21-rocks.jpg.e51f00eaec6224d3be95bdb8e777af25.jpg

The signs really help to prevent people from climbing (or putting wet clothes) on the rock

20-coke.jpg.54b2495d33c461f046ae989758c30959.jpg

These people have the right idea

19-pepsi.jpg.cd63fe2751c2cb063a6c8edf9a0c5808.jpg

Bad news: Well, there is no bad news!

18-buffet.jpg.7fd5538e7ec2ec47101ad527a99b1314.jpg

Good news: The buffet price has been reduced today

17-rush.jpg.d38805e8e46e2a662c2d3bb1843099d4.jpg

Rush is an S&S Screaming Swing. They were only running one side, and the program was weak (at least compared to the ones at Wild Adventures), but we had our express passes.

Being in the Navy, Chris is right at home

14-poopdeck.jpg.59235d1f23f6433147f896a021d589d4.jpg

Ha ha ha! It says "poop"

12-x.jpg.1c387ef9bc73667c14afc5765d9852d6.jpg

More Intamin goodness. I wonder of people flying out from Heathrow can see an "X" on the roof of building in the background

11-throne.thumb.jpg.1db1c732b93a3188a4f263a854c955ae.jpg

Kids are great for getting those hard to get credits, and getting to propose to each other too. She said no! (Great idea Chris!)

42-throne.jpg.422df87517a2d8f419d184aeaa04c7df.jpg

Is this supposed to be some sort of "gay marriage"?

10-chris.thumb.jpg.08a8e72343a5fa75bd1905490e1e4377.jpg

I thought Chris was already married

09-heartline.jpg.732b55b38f1aa274939beb88a2d98c2d.jpg

There is a lot of "hang time" in the heartline rolls

08-loop.thumb.jpg.0d65426f13e76e5c43f056e6eccbaada.jpg

Vertical loop goodness through the trees!

This staff member was holding up the queue for the first ride of the day

04a-sign.jpg.a646761024b3e499face95a7a47c4115.jpg

This is what happens when you take your phone on the ride

04-stealth.thumb.jpg.fb11f6bc66fe38b00e28ed19078b0cbd.jpg

First new credit: Stealth.

If you want to ride, you need to get a hands free kit for your cell phone, and don't drink and drive.

03-queues.jpg.d513ec942412494d7bc62a6d4e560ebc.jpg

Elissa warned us that this place would be just like a Six Flags park

02-credit.jpg.4a1f462e23ab960cc1b1793fcf01549d.jpg

Where do we go to get on that ride?

Next stop: Balder (and the Banana!)

39-explanation.thumb.jpg.3eaebcecc45a9122301d12a1e4016bc5.jpg

One of the staff members explains that the balance of pressure in the tanks was off and that it would take a while to fix. At least we got the credit though

I remember riding one of these in a fast food restaurant in Auckland

Is this an acceptable amount of water?

Does Utgang translate to "Danger: Vekoma Ride"?

Will, please do! When I complete the "park index" pages I will link to ALL of these UK Trip Reports.

 

So just because they might not be getting immediate response here in the short term, there will be a greater opportunity for them to be viewed in the long term!

I've still got more to post to this. I've got the rest of Liseberg, some of London, and other bits and pieces. I've started posting the images at lower resolutions as I don't want to fill up a single page with ten of my posts all containing large images

It doesn't matter where you sit, there's air in every seat

It looks like they have a third train too

31-ert.jpg.b117fca130fc8b540296c85e6b699862.jpg

This is what ERT is all about, even with the second train removed

It's got more steel in it than a regular woodie, but it's got more wood in it too

26-transfer.jpg.6d123252d1f680d6d9cb172fdb430224.jpg

The lines for ERT were so short that they actually removed a train from the track

25-kanonen.jpg.a5ef3f77441490c8f333599a3f7a8a09.jpg

Riding Kanonen meant pulling ourselves away from Balder for five minutes

The low capacity of the Cherry Picker Ride meant that many us didn't get to ride

23-banana.jpg.b69e42a5caefd5c7ab0930483172cbbb.jpg

Hi Joe!

22-lift.jpg.9787a2c95b2d2e7dd43b33224fd07985.jpg

The lift is steep for a woodie

21-transfer.jpg.44b6776a2abc86bb4e6c90ec71eaeaf4.jpg

Exclusive transfer track shot!

20-balderqueue.jpg.4ffb4a11a02eaac8b6e69672b93a5d74.jpg

Any coaster geek would recognize these coasters

19-barry.jpg.6e44cbcecbdbcfa558df57ff2ff9f3f1.jpg

Instead he went looking for more beer

18-loo.jpg.db2bfbcae06355f61d04afc41e9d87de.jpg

A nice touch. Hopefully Barry didn't use it

17-TPR.jpg.766d5b374e5aba86b6ac0f0a9f93566c.jpg

16-fanboys.jpg.c53677a9ae08bcc6a1e255820ac663c9.jpg

Here's one for the Robb fanboys/fangirls out there

15-testing.jpg.0a17318d96189b0038e7fc54543cf71b.jpg

They were testing the ride while we were still working on it. What ever happened to Sweden's "Zero Vision" initiative?

14-elissa.jpg.04450ce0447b5609e25ff0cae57d8eff.jpg

So who was it that impregnated Elissa anyway?

13-hammer.jpg.b6f19754ab4410dcfd7242d891c07a70.jpg

Hammers, nails, and Sharpies!

12-robb.jpg.3658bab50ff748aa888c19d77f11042c.jpg

Robb + hammer + beer = Bad idea!

11-hammers.jpg.9a4284d3cb5da616fe7abd564a632117.jpg

"The Intamin Curse hit us and we need your help putting this ride back together"

10-breakfast.jpg.2bd62a193f2dc694524f0136757b4171.jpg

Who wants breakfast?

09-welcome.jpg.237d0c6446d6ac594df35dfacc5ab369.jpg

Welcome to Liseberg

08-house.jpg.71c6556ed1d6897ad5881c5a972c50a4.jpg

This is the house within the ride's structure, built as a tribute to Bakken

07-rides.jpg.b960c1d473c33c97d6d70c27cad7a30e.jpg

We had ERT on three rides, Balder, Kanonen, and the Cherry Picker ride

06-aholes.jpg.e67dd95f3f8a814d378623ca4d539966.jpg

Can you find

Several A-holes?

A Plopp sign?

A Banana?

Shockwave?

An Intamin Rocket?

Joe?

05-jacko2.jpg.9a55f206394d2b2cea7c497ec52066af.jpg

With or without a Michael Jackson star, anything goes in Europe

04-jacko.jpg.dae805446a4307ffe3f6940fd5a2f0fd.jpg

Wacko Jacko had one too

03-al.jpg.d42a2a75ef9984603894e3c4282341c7.jpg

Good old Al had a star here

02-urban.jpg.ed9fdf33bf58fb912176b9dbe9fc1bb2.jpg

Liseberg is in an urban setting, and within walking distance of the hotel

01-elevator.jpg.1d11064f2737e7adf3db77763df1c169.jpg

The hotel we stayed at was interesting. For one thing, our room keys were actually keys, and there was also this creepy elevator. I think I'd rather ride ToT at MGM

I finally got round to posting the rest of Liseberg. There's a few little "surprises" in this one. Comments are appreciated! If anyone is interested, I can post my London pictures too

100-robbshaves.jpg.15301c11db829141be35cdda1221d1bf.jpg

BINGO!

99-ddr.thumb.jpg.a1bcf17f3c9007d0951595eaa679d123.jpg

I'll finish my DDR Trip Report sometime too

98-dump.jpg.bcbf66e1a05158d237ccc50397e0042e.jpg

"Dump the Ump"? I need a bathroom

97-pinball.jpg.d59ddee5939d893bfe3329d08587e5b3.jpg

Pinball machines for Cameron!

96-rainbow.jpg.d97de5ff3bdcf60173dad22d66f45635.jpg

Up above the streets and houses

Rainbow climbing high

It looks like a tame ride, but it's not at all

Slide from side to side on Rainbow!

95-escalator.jpg.b5a0fb5d13da0885f2ced5a012ed9f32.jpg

Yet another Escalator ride

94-dlcar.jpg.84f05c8af1ba6b344562ed7f04b9d80e.jpg

Don't you wish you could ride Peter Pan, Joe?

93.jpg.4ce90f85cdfb3c96c8f3acc0635f6ab1.jpg

The Dreamland looked like a Disney type ride

92-hotel.jpg.513ae681f126789d8a3b8db4ada1a575.jpg

The haunted hotel is a walk-thru attraction, which was fairly well done with live actors

91-icecream.jpg.12d41d91e5954419d3fffa62b9476f16.jpg

More Swedish patriotism

90-afterburner.jpg.06a896309776af8fcef7e0528cb24fa2.jpg

Yay for more Gator colored rides!

89-lift.jpg.8e82b978e9e907fbac4ea5a2425a2282.jpg

...which explains why we got stuck on the lift

88-intamin.jpg.15c565e4d33865216e84077ffcec647b.jpg

Our boat contained the seal of excellence

87-again.jpg.14d18ad6583fe1a99d7d69a35f0e5b41.jpg

So we ride again

86-exit.jpg.69635ae4deceb7ddd08033667f899bf9.jpg

"That's not an acceptable amount of wetness"

85-wetness.jpg.ecd7b6495f3aa08fe19397cbd68b3c5e.jpg

84-overtake.jpg.966f2ec188d471223b672b6e55b708a8.jpg

They were dispatching boats fairly quickly

83-standup.jpg.701c29fd10abccc29c6bc59347187e53.jpg

Especially when you stand up to avoid the waterfall

82-rapids.jpg.dd82dd070839ffdba7725920c7703492.jpg

The rapids ride wasn't very wet

81-flash.jpg.f6102e2967e164968ca1324d34632b61.jpg

I thought people only flashed on Splash Mountain, but then again, this is Europe

dandryer.jpg.29032bcda39caf123a99bc8f533e065f.jpg

But even it wasn't, there's always the Dan Dryer in the bathroom

80-wetness.jpg.5b52cf596eea10fac9c25aea5eaa4f0e.jpg

I would consider this a Dan Friendly water ride

79-flume2.jpg.62c28ccd403573b83da052fc978ea0f1.jpg

And this is the part where we have to jump out

78-flumelift2.jpg.fa6fc3c69b285de3b55ccf5ab69a054f.jpg

The flume also follows the terrain well

77-flume-banana.jpg.161ed5208a109eb8d0ee954059b83061.jpg

Passing under the Schwarzkopf ride

76-flumelift.jpg.0dbb4bf6b6e9557aa46a58860f4504bf.jpg

The flume ride

75-flume.jpg.656d1202b7ca76c9144a76f59a40560f.jpg

74-banana5.jpg.754784b4bc5d56096685b88ff545a246.jpg

73-banana4.jpg.73914e0370d532eeff6477a620f16d22.jpg

72-banana3.jpg.0da56532ebb37bb4f252ae105305e919.jpg

Every few seconds, they would dispatch another train

71-banana2.jpg.460c33563e42f5c46226d2924c005ecc.jpg

70-bananalift.jpg.aced7d3439aa26f16044dba672e94566.jpg

The top is a good place to get lots of shots of the LiseJoeBanan

69-escalator2.jpg.6adabe7975f66a557b4c5d5d3ce67d9c.jpg

At the top is...another Escalator Ride!

68-escalator.jpg.f3f8d1798056beab5ad0d451107554aa.jpg

Liseberg even has an Escalator Ride

57-banana.jpg.6a63a0ab795bb4d28836f2f12a5ee374.jpg

Another shot of the Banana

56-tshirt.jpg.dde0a63d71ccf19e790e156668a45bf8.jpg

I can understand them mis-spelling my name in my high school senior year yearbook three times (which was actually coaster themed), but this is unacceptable

55-paul.jpg.2c47b54a6291d78a5168f4be3128acf9.jpg

Sweden's got World Cup Fever too

54-fart2.jpg.5f648bf064b1564276676bc42a1c49ce.jpg

But it looks like the Banana and the Rapids ride are farting rides too (Schwarzkopf rides were sometimes distributed under the Intamin name)

53-fart.jpg.ffeaefa3974d63a02ba3b530a2430af1.jpg

Proof that Balder is in fact a Farting Intamin Woodie

52-birdfeed.jpg.53b3842ba8586806d066a433d30cefde.jpg

Don't feed the birds - They're not interested

51-dryck.jpg.8e3bab48e561170526c87bd83ae6dc41.jpg

I'll take the Whopper Value Meal with a medium Dryck

50-bk4.jpg.343913c86577f1e43dcf4795052bd051.jpg

Time for lunch. There are four Burger Kings at Liseberg

46-ducttape.jpg.799587ad65df96df8609f7ba6f90bd52.jpg

Robb's duct tape comes in handy again, making it easier for everyone to identify their Balder bags

45-kids.jpg.827c676ccdd5fea7bcbd05ebd9621f08.jpg

Some of the looks of the Swedish kids are priceless

44-kiddie2.jpg.c2dd4ff1005e59eb95af73d533198b2b.jpg

43-casey.jpg.10f4c6ebad9d5f3f9fab2a38b2d44a4f.jpg

Casey fits!

42-kiddie.jpg.62f48123f819f2f3b1d2867308efacb3.jpg

Of course, we also had to take over the kiddie coaster too

41-spiral.jpg.d3560c1c51638be43af40bc043c8f41a.jpg

It's a well designed ground-hugging terrain coaster

40-goingup.jpg.863df6ed0ab8897443d369bda17b57c4.jpg

Be sure to buy Robb's DVD to see all of this

39-lift.jpg.5bc9b74dc4e9a714fc4f05cdba6cb6dc.jpg

Going up the lift

38-backwards.jpg.235d3e176fa304ea9b9bce2b99a76188.jpg

...backwards???

37-load.jpg.415c33cb20ea793d722969fb69d2f9a2.jpg

The first train is loaded up an ready to go...

36-banana.jpg.82269e6a7882874acde6562d52a41854.jpg

Such as a complete takeover of the Banana!

35-endert.jpg.d822201c6f0a9831bdd21d95aae0f753.jpg

All good things come to an end, but there's the rest of Liseberg to check out
