I think it's a really nice ride. The Hydronauts side at LEGOLAND California can get you really wet when there is a strong ocean breeze.

Today's update! Djurs Sommerland!

Image
Today the TPR Scandi Tour is at Djurs Sommerland for some Piraten and Juvelen ERT!

Image
Our ERT at Djurs Sommerland started on Juvelen, the parks new Intamin family launched coaster.

Image
Going "off roading" on Juvelen at Djurs Sommerland!

Image
TPR loved Juvelen! Fun family coaster and very well themed!

Image
Our two hour ERT began on Piraten... And it was epic! Absolutely EPIC!!!

Image
Our Piraten ERT was insane!!! Why aren't there more of these amazing coasters built?

Image
Piraten is one seriously kick ass ride! It's better than like 99% of roller coasters in the rest of the world!

Image
The amount of airtime and the volume of hands up fun is almost unmatched by any other roller coaster!

Image
We popped a lot of mega-lite cherries today and that was a very good thing!

Image
The mega-lite has been called a "mini-I305" and in some ways it's BETTER! More airtime!

Image
Djurs Sommerland not only has some amazing coasters, but there is plenty of random "fun" to be had, too!

Image
Dear USA parks, kids don't have to be segregated to lame kids areas. Play areas near big rides is simple & effective!


We had just as much fun doing silly things at Djurs Sommerland as we did riding coasters!

Image
They gave us raw dough and we cooked our own bread over an open fire. NEVER. IN. AMERICA!!!

Image
The bread was totally delicious!!!

Image
It warned up a bit later and some of us even went to the water park!

Image
Djurs Sommerland still has an operating Topple Tower! One of the last in the world!

Image
Djurs has a full sized ropes course... A REAL one! No harnesses, nothing... NEVER. IN. AMERICA!!!

Image
The theming for Juvelen is very nice! Great themed queue & even has a dark ride section before the coaster launches!

Image
There are many amazing ways to injure yourself at this park... Again... Never in America!

Image
Chico Jungle Safari is slightly politically incorrect, but very fun boat ride about animal poachers in Africa!

Image
Now THIS is how you ride a rapids ride!!!

Image
Off-roading across Denmark on Juvelen!

Image
I still rank Piraten in the top ten steel coasters in the world!

Image
Djurs has chair swings that go backwards. I don't think this happens at many parks!

Image
The ropes course is absolutely amazing! And it's not just for kids! It's tough for adults as well!

Image
Can't forget about Thor's Hammer... A super fun Gerstlauer Bobsled/Wild Mouse!

Image
Once again, Garbles is having a small ice cream cone.

Image
Having a bit too much fun on the Chicos mad poachers ride!

Image
First you get a bag of dough...

Image
Next you put it on a stick and cook it over the open flame...

Image
Then you eat it up... YUM!

Image
"FIRE! HOT!!!"

Image
I feel I need to share another photo of Piraten, just because it's so awesome!

Image
Oh, yeah, I can't forget the Mack Supersplash! I really liked this one!

Image
"Hop aboard and start farten!"

Image
Bouncy bouncy bouncy...

Image
I had never seen one of these tilting frog hoppers before...

Image
It was seriously a lot of fun!

Image
Taking over the ... um ... big, black log!


This is how you rock the big, black, log!

Image
We played "pass the sword" on Piraten, until Doug lost it and was banned from ERT sessions forever!

Image
...and taste worse with Pepsi.

Image
Pass the Sword is a never in America thing! And this is why we love doing tours in Europe!

Image
We had just an EPIC day at Djurs Sommerland! An ERT that will go down in history at an amazing park!

Looks like you're having some serious fun!
And that bread looked...... aaaa..... delicious
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.

Yeah...I'm admittedly jealous about all of these "never in America" things. Makes me think I should move to Europe or Japan or something...

The TPR Scandi Tour made a quick evening stop to Tivoli Friheden after Djurs Sommerland. Here are some photos of the visit!

Image
The next stop on our TPR Scandi Tour was Tivoli Friheden where we had entire park ERT!

Image
Tivoli Friheden is home to "Cobra", a completely messed up looking inverted roller coaster!

Image
Cobra's layout is extremely compact and totally nuts!

Image
Check it out! We have the entire park to ourselves!!!

Image
As for the other bigger coasters at the park there is a spinning mouse...

Image
And a looping Pinfari roller coaster.

Image
But the real star of Tivoli Friheden is the SCAD tower. You drop 40 meters into a net. Nothing attached to you!


The SCAD Tower at Tivoli Friheden is a true "free fall" experience. Nothing but you and the net for 13 stories!

Image
You free fall 130 feet into the net below you! It's terrifying great fun!

Image
This is usually the look on most faces right before you drop!

Image
But the reaction is always thumbs up! It really is an amazing ride!

Image
Hang on tight!


Here's what free falling 13 stories at Tivoli Friheden looks like from the ground!

Image
Is it just me or does it look like Gary is holding on to "something?"

Image
You guys ready to drop?

Image
The SCAD Tower is an amazing experience & not many are left in the world. Check this out next time you're in Denmark!

Image
While some rode the coasters and dropped to their doom, the rest of us were in the fun house!

Image
Soupy in the tilted room! Like the old days of Knott's Haunted Shack!

Image
Garbles had only minor brain injuries from the slide!

Image
Was a great evening at Tivoli Friheden! Thanks for the full park ERT!!!

Is the Elses Hotel dark ride still there? That one was pretty good.

The SCAD Tower is, indeed, something one should try at least once. Still can't get into the idea of bungee jumping though. ;)

It is, but it's been converted into a shooting dark ride with zombies on 3D media screens.

Wow, still a great report so far. Looks like you guy's had a blast. We have been in Djurs a few weeks ago and had a great time.
Piraten was as reported here one of the greatest coasters out there. Intens and hugh airtime made it become one of my favorite coasters.
Juvelen also was a suprise. Family coaster? after the second launch it was a blast. Sure, kids can ride it but it was a ride with some good forces.
The Mack (a watercoaster (not a supersplash like reporterd) was a great smaller version of Poseidon in EP.
The park itself was bigger, a lot bigger as we suspected. We couldn't be more suprised by the rides and atmosphere within the park. Every employee was in a good mood.
Djurs will certainly see us again in the nearby future. Thanks again for your great updates and pictures from these great parks. Hope you guy's will enjoy everything over there.
