Photo TR: Duinrell, The Netherlands

Postby JordyC » Sat Jun 20, 2015 6:39 am

Hello, everyone!
On 18 June 2015, I went to Duinrell. Duinrell is a family park located in Holland. It has a few good thrills to offer, and it also has a great water park with thrilling slides. I didn't visit it this time, but the previous time I went to this park, the slides were absolutely brilliant! Duinrell is very popular in The Netherlands, especially for its water park. The last years, the park really invested in adding some thrill rides and coasters. The latest addition of the park is Dragon Fly, a really good Gerstlauer Family Coaster. Enough talking, let’s check it out!

Welcome to Duinrell!
DSC_0229.JPG
Rick The Frog, the mascot of the park. It's not the last time you'll see Rick in this park, believe me.
DSC_0231.JPG
First ride of the day, Aqua Shute. It's a fun little water slide. But don't be fooled, it goes faster than you think.
DSC_0234.JPG
Like most little parks in Holland, this park was also very well themed!
DSC_0240.JPG
They have a little free fall ride, where you have to pull yourself up. It's themed as a candle, don't ask me why..
DSC_0243.JPG
Unfortunately this was closed.. I really like these kind of rides.
DSC_0244.JPG
The pirate ship was closed too, apparently they were working on the wheel that powers the boat. One thing for sure, it's better themed than most other pirate ships.
DSC_0250.JPG
There is a really good atmosphere at the park.
DSC_0252.JPG
This is the water park, called TikiBad. It is located in the middle of the park.
DSC_0256.JPG
As I told you, they have some really good slides.
DSC_0259.JPG
No park without a ferris wheel. It's not that big, but it's very nice.
DSC_0268.JPG
The swing ride of the park, called Aqua Swing. I don't know why they gave it that name ^_^
DSC_0271.JPG
Duinrell also has a Toboggan.
DSC_0273.JPG
It's a really long way up. 2-3 minutes, at least..
DSC_0274.JPG
But it's worth it, it's really fast!
DSC_0290.JPG
The first coaster of the park, a Tivoli Large from Zierer. Do you have any idea why it is called the Frog Coaster? ;)
DSC_0295.JPG
I wonder what kind of ride Splash would be?
DSC_0318.JPG
Oooow, it's a water ride. This park puts so much effort in choosing the names of their attractions, it appears..
DSC_0370.JPG
A special pic for those lift hill enthusiasts out there.
DSC_0345.JPG
It's not such a big splash.
DSC_0348.JPG
Okay, THAT is a big splash!
DSC_0325.JPG
Next up, Mad Mill. One of the thrill rides of the park.
DSC_0327.JPG
It's a Frisbee, themed after a mill. Very well done, in my opinion.
DSC_0329.JPG
Even the details are great!
DSC_0335.JPG
It is a beautiful ride.
DSC_0338.JPG
You don't get to see this side of the ride all that often.
DSC_0353.JPG
Duinrell also has a Top Spin, called Waterspin. Probably because it spins, and there's water..
DSC_0361.JPG
The ride looks really good.
DSC_0366.JPG
Just chilling, and a bit hanging around.
DSC_0376.JPG
You can take some really nice pics of this ride.
DSC_0379.JPG
Now it's time for Dragon Fly. The latest addition of the park. It's a Gerstlauer Family Coaster, the same one as the coaster that's coming to Belantis in Germany later this year.
DSC_0385.JPG
I really like the trains.
DSC_0310.JPG
The coaster is not that big, but it's got plenty of airtime.
DSC_0324.JPG
Dragon Fly meets Frog Coaster.
DSC_0381.JPG
I always loved track piece 31. I don't know why, but 3 & 1 makes 4, and 4 is almost 5. I know, that doesn't make sense.
DSC_0393.JPG
It's definitely a great addition for the park.
DSC_0444.JPG
She had the ride of her life, I guess.
DSC_0459.JPG
Dragon Fly climbing through the woods.
DSC_0388.JPG
What do I see there?
DSC_0508.JPG
It's Falcon, the biggest ride of the park! It's a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter, the same one as Untamed in Canobie Lake Park (USA) and Rage in Adventure Island (UK).
DSC_0526.JPG
Just like the rest of the park, this ride was very well themed.
DSC_0403.JPG
The ride fits very well in the park.
DSC_0421.JPG
I don't know why, but I noticed this. Don't get me wrong, the ride is very well maintained.
DSC_0427.JPG
Vertical Loop, viewed from underneath.
DSC_0522.JPG
Another special pic, this time for chain dog enthusiasts.
DSC_0473.JPG
Random people having a good time.
DSC_0518.JPG
What goes up..
DSC_0416.JPG
..Must come down!
DSC_0425.JPG
Brace position. Not the Vekoma one, of course.
DSC_0468.JPG
The cutback of the ride.
DSC_0496.JPG
It's really nice that the park is located in the middle of a forest. It's such a great atmosphere.
DSC_0512.JPG
Zero G at the top of the loop.
DSC_0504.JPG
A last pic of Falcon, to end the day. I hope you liked it! =D

Duinrell looks really cool! It looks like the supports for all of the attractions are trees.

This was a really nice park to visit, back in 2010, end of the TPR Europe Tour.
And glad to see they have added another coaster to their collection. When
did they take the roof off the Splashdown ride boats? There was definitely a
cover on them, that last visit. And if you sat in the back, all the water welled
up and drained on the back row! It was great. :wink:

There are 2 types of boats, one with a cover, and one without a cover.

This is the boat with the cover.

^This is the first time I've seen one of those covered splash boats outside of Japan.

I enjoy these quirky little European parks--thanks for the photos.

Cool trip report, thanks for sharing! I really like how the various rides and rollercoaster supports are painted to look like wood, really nice touch!

^I didn't notice that, but now that you mention it, I like it. They blend in with the setting nicely.
