Update time! Our first city and park visit brought us to Copenhagen and Bakken. The city was wonderful and being able to stay there for 3 nights was just fantastic! Super easy to get to from the airport and everything. So much for the talk, lets just take you to the journey and the beginning of the official tour!
Departing Frankfurt to Copenhagen! My plane from the previous day (SQ A380) is taxiing to take off below
1 hour later and I was in Copenhagen! Amazing how quick it is to clear these airports.
Spent a few hours walking around Copenhagen. Awesome city!
We had our welcome diner at Wagamama's near Tivoli. I really enjoyed the potstickers.
The view from our hotel in Copenhagen at night!
The next morning we were on our first bus ride of the trip! Gotta love the sights of Copenhagen ;) (look closely)
And we have arrived at Bakken!
Bakken is hidden within a park of Copenhagen and you can't see much from the outside. Pretty neat!
Our first stop of the day was Rutschebanen, a retrofitted side friction coaster.
Jens, who takes care of the ride, shared a lot of the ride's history and gave us a lot of information about it!
First ERT session of the trip!
Gotta love those old lift hills.
And here we go!
The coaster is a lot of fun with random pops of airtime and double downs everywhere!!!
Best tunnel entrance ever?!?
Went for a back seat ride for good measure.
The other star attraction of the park and next ERT coaster was Tornado!
While it may look like a lift hill, this really feels like a launched Intamin spinning coaster!
The first corner is deadly in the best way possible. So extreme!!!
I love how the ride just flies in and around the building it sits in.
Amazing reactions on this ride. Couldn't help but laugh
Just spinning out of control!
The ride is super fast, compact, and forceful. It's hard to catch a normal moment!
Next the park opened, and we hit all of the coasters. Love the station on this mouse!
Pretty standard ride, but everything is better in Europe.
Flitzer's are a lot of fun!
Just flying by
Another one for the lift hill enthusiasts
Take the tunnel?
Honestly these are great little rides. Quick and smooth!
Of course, there was also the kiddie coaster. Behind the scenes of the POV ;)
Good job making the line long guys :)
Last but not least was the Intamin mine train!
It is known as "Outdoor Skull Mountain"! Lots of fun.
My favorite part was the tight turns next the ground at the end. Good stuff!
The park had a lot of cool flat rides. This was one of them!
New from Gerstlauer, the seats are super comfy and the ride system is great!
We wandered around the park hitting random attractions for a few hours.
I think it is a rule that every park in Europe has to have a fun house!
Slide or stairs? The theming was cute on this one.
A park visit isn't complete without a few midway games.
Craig shows off his dart skills (he fails)
Giant candy floss!
Cool old bumper car racing ride thing
Never seen one of these outside LegoLand!
The dark ride was also interesting.
How about one more spin on Tornado before leaving?
This ride is seriously kickass. Hope we see one somewhere else soon.
After our day at Bakken, we headed to Urban Ranger Camp which is the highest indoor ropes course in the world! It took over an old shipyard building.
While I didn't have the skill (and balls) to complete the high ropes course, I did get to hang out with this insanely cute puppy. Thanks for reading! Next up Tivoli Gardens :)
