Wait. What?! :lmao: That would seriously scare me so much.

Will the clowns be on other cars, or running around?
Note to self: don't be stupid...

Current top coaster = Expedition GeForce.

Other cars, running around would most likely be deemed too dangerous to do by the park.

So IIK!WEEK is done, and it was amazing

There were zombies roaming around, scaring people, the ambience was changed, new horror theming, horror themed food, etc.

I didn't get to do the specific for this event horror maze, only 2 people were let in at once and the queue was 2 hours long.

The permanent horror maze Linnanmäki has "kammokuja" which usually has you go through with 3d glasses, the walls being painted in uv colours and the uv lights lighting the halls, well this time they had turned all the lights off, added fog, zombie actors and you had to walk through carrying only a lantern for light. It was amazing, atmospheric, scary.

The "Taikasirkus" family circus ride was now just called "Sirkus" and the entrance looked like this:

20160910_152448.jpg


The inside had a corrupted version of the usual soundtrack with all the clowns being somehow clearly dead yet alive, the audience pictures had either their eyes or mouths crossed out and there were dead dolls scattered across. Live actor clowns would come and shake your car, laugh at you, etc.

The witch train was the usual witch train but there were a few live actors there to spice things up.

The scenic railway had something done to it as well actually, at the end of the ride the train enters a tunnel, the tunnel is filled with fog and red/orange lights to make it look like the tunnel is burning, after that a forest demon of some sort comes out.

The Linnunrata Extra VR Coaster had a special horror VR animation, which was AMAZING. You and everyone else ride in an old antique chair and a sorcerer lifts you up and takes you through a haunted mansion, but demons kill the sorcerer and you fly above a forest, a village, in a cave, etc.

There were some more mentionable things, but this was really quite something and ill be sure to come here again every year for the event!

Translated to english:

-"All good things come to an end, so does Kieppi's career in Linnanmäki. Come enjoy the last kieppi's (kieppi is an untranslatable word for a flip) during september-october."

So apparently Linnanmäki is getting rid of their HUSS Booster, which is odd because:
A: It's only 13 years old
B: It's extremely reliable and has barely any downtime
C: It's extremely popular

I wrote the book about donkeys!

Linnanmäki has now closed, and the season ended in (now traditional) Carnival of Lights. This year there were even more custom lights, and the event has grown a lot in popularity in the last couple of years! I'm bummed that Kieppi is leaving, but I tried to get as many last rides on it as I could. Linnanmäki closing also means the beginning of off-season for me, so it's time to fire up NoLimits again ;)

Anyway here are some photos I took. This year I bought a DSLR (used Nikon D5100 for those of you interested) and I have to say; it's a nice leap in quality to finally have a DSLR on a tripod =)

This is what you see upon entering the park

Those are some really awesome shots!

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)
