There are few European parks that intrigue me more than Grona Lund. I give them such credit for being inventive with their limited real estate for attractions.

Another great report Chuck! Thank you for sharing!

Re Kolmarden: With such upper-class wildlife - Chauncey, Edgar and Cyril - I'd LOVE to meet them after the gondola ride for High Tea. (Perhaps I'll exclude the lions tho...even if they ARE humming Hakhooman Matata.   Yes, Chuck, I think you've correctly sized up their body language.)

Great pix!  Great report!  Thanks!

The sad thing is, I have absolutely no memory of what I was even taking a picture of.

Sad to see this report come to an end, but what a fun place to end it. And I'd never dare go up against either Larry or Elissa in whack-a-mole, unless I wanted to lose!

Great report, Chuck!


I don't want to face Elissa in Whack-a-Mole. but I did have a good day between this, finding the pizza place and the most awesome picture spot ever.

Was that Kathy Griffin's brother sitting in one of those coaster cars??

Why, I can't imagine which two. ;)

Yep--that's a good one. :lol:

Please say it was named "The Evert Taube Experience."

My thanks to everyone who took the time to read my nonsense and enjoyed it--and to Robb and Elissa for yet another amazing trip!
