Hey, everyone!
On 12 Sep 2014, I went to Toverland. Toverland is kind of like saying Magic Land or Wizard Land in English. It's a nice little family park with a few good thrills. The last couple of years, they really invested in adding some thrill rides. One of these additions is Troy, a GCI Woodie that is considered as one of the best wooden coasters in Europe. But that's not the only good ride out there. Let’s check it out!

When the park opened in 2001, it was all indoors. Toverland did a few big indoor and outdoor expansions over the last couple of years. This is the entrance of the park, that leads to the indoor area.

Once you come in, you'll see this eye catchy Swing Ride. It's called Sim Sa la Swing - don't ask me why, but it made me laugh. lol

The park is really well themed. Hey, look there! It's Boomerang! No, not the Vekoma Boomerang, although it's still a Vekoma. But this is a custom junior coaster. It was rough, but still a good ride.

They do not have just one slide, they have two of them, woohoo!

The wait for the logue flume was pretty much straight on. Okay, it actually was straight on!

It goes outside for the main drop. As i said, very well themed.

Once you come outside, you'll see this green track. It's a Vekoma Motorbike Coaster, and yes it has a name! Booster Bike.

More green track! This really is a good ride. It has a great launch too; 0-75 km/h (0-50 mph) in just 3 seconds.

You can get some really nice pics of this ride.

The new themed area of the park, Magic Valley.
DSC_0071.jpg
This area is really magical! More parks should do things like this.
DSC_0073.jpg
Even the Rapid River is very beautiful.

I really like how this park puts so much effort in details.
DSC_0077.jpg
What do I see there?
DSC_0085.jpg
It's the new Mack Spinning Coaster called Dwervelwind. It's the same one as Twist in Le Pal, located in France.
DSC_0097.jpg
Even the station is awesome!
DSC_0089.jpg
Dwervelwind in all of its glory.
DSC_0088.jpg
I probably should mention that the weather was really great that day.
Naamloos4.jpg
No, it's not the S of Superman. It's the S of euhm.. Spinning Coaster I guess??
DSC_0093.jpg
Mack makes some really good coasters. I really loved this ride.
DSC_0107.jpg
Yes, they have a pirate ship too. But this one was - just like almost everything in the park - very well themed.
DSC_0045.jpg
Ow yeah! Troy is waiting for us!
DSC_0099.jpg
The entrance to the Troy themed area.
Naamloos5.jpg
Even the Trojan Horse looked amazing!
DSC_0060.jpg
The station of Troy.
DSC_0059.jpg
With a height of 32 m (100 ft) and a speed of almost 90 km/h (55 mph), this really is an awesome coaster!
Naamloos6.jpg
Random people having a really good time!
DSC_0102.jpg
This woodie is definitely the best woodie I've ridden.
DSC_0105.jpg
It even has a station fly-through!
DSC_0098.jpg
A last pic of Troy, to end the day. I hope you liked it! =D

I've been considering going to this park during my trip(s) through Netherlands and Germany this year, so it's nice to see an up-to-date report :) Looks fun!

Troy has always been one of my favourite wood coasters. Still is.

Thanks for sharing your trip to Toverland. :)

I really need to get back to this park. They have done so much since my last visit on 2008 and I really enjoyed the park back then.

Awesome report! As much as I miss Orlando and want to go back again next year, I may have to prioritize a trip through Germany and Holland as my 2016 "big trip". So many great parks I want to visit, and Toverland is definitely high on the list. I knew the park had some good theming, but I didn't know it was so extensively themed. Looks beautiful!

Thanks for sharing! :)
