^ Well that's better than I believe we went through. And that ferocious (to guys) drop tower ride. Quite the park. But I did get my #300 there (Backyardigans: Mission To Mars, YAY!), and The Best Pic of me on any ride, any where, has to be the one below. Genuine terror on a wild mouse, and not for the camera either, LOL. Fun times.
Thank you Robb (?) for taking the pic! (o: TPR 2008 Europe Tour.
Has anyone updated pictures of the Area 51 ride? I read some tima ago that that volcano has disappeard, but I like to see the new theming. And: How is the park in general? I read mixed reviews, from awful up to "do it if you are in the proximity". None of them said, the park would be worth a single trip. And I'm not sure if the coasters alone are worth four hours of driving.
The volcano is still there, only repainted. In the queue lots of new signage, and new movies on the TVs. During the ride, a couple new vehicles, and all the projections have been updated to match the new storyline. You now visit Area 51, whereas before you went on an expedition to the Bermuda Triangle. There's also a new soundtrack.

It's not awful, but it's all very average. There are 7 coasters, but only 2 are "good". Not worth 4 hours of travel imo.
Movie Park Germany's operations are awful (early closures, one train ops, slow ops, etc), but the park has good theming. Star Trek and Van Helsing are nice coasters, but not destination coasters. Their water rides/dark rides are quite good though.
I also have some photos of Area 51.

^ Thanks for the quick replies. I even saw that first picture. But I was so sure that I read the words "we get rid of the volcano", so i assumed that they will put away the mountain and make some other building for the dark ride sections. So I thought, this picture was "old" and before the renovation!
Okay, and that's what I get to hear when people are talking about the park. Too bad.
I agree with what others have said. It's a good park, but with so much other greatness nearby it would be hard to recommend going there over another park. Now, they're on the right track with Star Trek and if they can RMC that god awful woodie then it all of a sudden really becomes a destination!
^ A Dark ride to replace Ice Age or Walking Dead Maze would also be great.
