BRB moving to Sweden...
Norwegian does have cheap flights from Orlando to Oslo (ca. 450$ roundtrip) and then you can get a cheap bus ride to Gothenburg.

Thread revival time! Needless to say this has been an insanely busy and tiring semester for me, but I want to keep this thread going and finish sharing my photos from the trip.
For tonight, here is a quick small update of Skara Sommerland! The park is located right dab in the middle of Sweden and a nice little stop between Gothenburg and Stockholm. However it will probably be tougher to hit once Kolmarden jumps on the map with Wildfire on the "southern route" across the country. Anyways, the park is home to one of the most unique coasters in the world in Tranan and is a nice place to spend a few hours. Apparently it gets very busy here which is great and hopefully this means the park will be able to grow!
On to the photos
Welcome to Skara Sommerland!
Our morning started out with ERT on all 3 coasters (how nice)! The first stop for us was the appropriately named Spinner.
Not sure who makes this mouse, but it was my first time on this model. Reminded me of what the Chinese ones looked like and kinda scared me!
Finally, it was time to head over to Tranan.
Oh my god what the hell is this thing???
It was seriously the most bizarre sensation ever. And it felt like you were going to fall out!
The park is centered around a nice lake.
Beware of the bouncy bridge!
At the other end is the park's powered coaster. Enter if you dare!
Had no idea you had to walk through an insanely dark tunnel to ride it! It was really cool. I had to use flash to even get a glimpse of it it was so dark!
Then once you get into the station, let the ABBA dance party begin.
It's a cute powered coaster with a slightly themed indoor helix section.
How about another ride on Tranan?
It's really crazy how different the two sides are. I think one was a lot more "thrilling" and it was the left side if you are facing forwards.
Time to explore the rest of the park. Water features to play in!
Exactly where I would think to go for a Mexican buffet!
Somehow I managed to avoid being forcefully rotated in this thing.
Another awesome large playground in a European theme park!
This cannot end well.
"I came in like a wrecking ball!"
Of course, we had to take a lap on the Texan!!! AWESOME!
The park is supposed to have a really nice waterpark that is the main draw. It was WAYYY too cold to check it out today!
They also had a cute area full of flat rides for the kids. Perfect park for cute little Swedish families!
We ended our visit with a western themed lunch.
And we played a Shark game before we left because Sharks!
And we won :) but still have to deal with Soupy on the long bus ride to Stockholm. Next up is Grona Lund!!!
