Why can't America have all the good stuff? We're just as smart as our cousins in Europe and Japan (or at lest approaching that.) Not all Americans are bumbling apes of carelessness...
"Official" Cedar Fair fanboy!
Favorite Steel: Maverick|Favorite Wood: El Toro, Goliath is close behind|Favorite non-prefab/RMC woodie: Hard to say. Probably Shivering Timbers or Georgia Cyclone
Favorite Flats (in no particular order) - MoA NU Brain Surge, Chance Chaos, Flying Scooters, drop towers
I take a stand against unnecessary neutering of rides. Restore Revolution, Blue Streak, Dorney Thunderhawk, Raging Bull, etc...

Portugal needs more old-school B&M's!!!

What's with those walls around the coasters? Noise?
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

We are live tweeting the entire trip! Follow us on Twitter @themeparkreview http://www.twitter.com/themeparkreview

Today's update! Farup Sommerland!

Image
Today the TPR Scandi Tour is at Farup Sommerland. Yet another fantastic park in Denmark!

Image
At Farup Sommerland, we had an awesome two hours of ERT on Falken, Lynet, and Orkanen. All solid, fun coasters!

Image
Reindeer run!!! Falken is attacking!!! (love this poster!!!)

Image
Lynet seemed to be the favorite of the group! It's a fantastic Gerstlauer launched coaster!

Image
We had a Danish film crew come out to Farup Sommerland and interview out group!

Image
The Danish film crew even interviewed KidTums about going around the world riding roller coasters.

Image
Love how even small Danish parks have digital wait time signs at each ride.

Image
Give Craig a gun and he turns I to a serial killer!

Image
Craig actually managed to hit the target!

Image
More awesome play areas in these awesome Danish parks!


I have a feeling this is going to end VERY badly!!!

Image
KidTums loved the spinning coaster at Farup Sommerland... Elissa... Not so much...

Image
Farup Sommerland is TPR famous for having the monkey bars over water that Joey refused to do in 2005.


To my surprise many TPR members made it across the monkey bars just fine!

Image
For a custom Vekoma Roller Skater, Farup Sommerland's is very good!

Image
Tons of trampolines and things that go bouncy bouncy at Farup Sommerland!

Image
Farup's amazing obstacle course starts with this maze.

Image
TPR going through Farup's obstacle course.

Image
Some of our members made the monkey bars look so easy!

Image
The sinking steps were more of a challenge as we had some people fall in!

Image
Teamwork, guys... Teamwork!

Image
Moments before some shit was eaten!

Image
Four lane zipline on the obstacle course! Yes!!

Image
KidTums went through the obstacle course and got her certificate of completion!

Image
Riding the hedgehog themed kiddie coaster at Farup Sommerland!

Image
Doing a little more filming on Falken at Farup Sommerland.

Image
Should be able to get some good shots from up here!

Image
Falken is one of the few S&S woodies that were built.

Image
It's a classic out and back layout with some good airtime on the hills.

Image
It was getting a bit rough and shuffley around the turns, though.

Image
But overall, Faklen is a fun ride!

Image
Hi, Soupy... You're on a kiddie coaster... Congrats!

Image
Fantastic day at Farup Sommerland! How are there so many great parks in Denmark???

It is likely there is at least 2 available cameras for each person in the group photo, I'm sure more will turn up in good time.
((53 + 112 + 17 + 24 + Scandi + Mid America + North East + China so far + other = >4??) - (powered = bah + humbug)) = Happy Fun Time
