That looks awesome so far!
No. 1 Water Park guy!
The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

Finally a great sunny day to visit this years Spring DOM. Sadly no Schwarzkopf coaster this spring which is quite a letdown but some nice flats compensate at least partially for it.

A walk-through attraction themed to pirates and sharks? How can you go wrong with that?

I'm always shocked to see a Wild Wind that's actually operating. I'd love to ride one of these one day just to say I did it.

I love donkeys more than me.

^They even let one do two spins for one admission. The loop and helix wasn't that bad but the entry into the final brake gave me some back pain. The operations was also unique: The coaster was run by one Italian guy not really fluent in German or English and just ordered "Alle Zu!" ("All Close!") and not even checking if restraints were properly closed... ;)

Glad I'm not a credit whore so I can skip this one the next time I am at a German fun fair.
