Photo TR: Drievliet Family Park, The Netherlands

Postby JordyC » Mon Jul 27, 2015 5:26 am

Hello, everyone!
On 26 July 2015, I went to Drievliet. Drievliet is a family park located in The Hague, Holland. It has a few good thrills to offer, but it is definitely more a family park. The park does have some good coasters, especially Formule X - a launched Maurer AG X-Car. Enough talking, let’s check it out!

Welcome to Drievliet!

You see this fountain when you enter the park.

Like almost every Dutch park, they have a water slide. It's really fun!
DSC_0824.JPG
Love the theming.
DSC_0801.JPG
There is a great atmosphere at the park!
DSC_0811.JPG
There are a lot of kiddie rides, but every single one of them is amazingly themed.
DSC_0808.JPG
The whale even blows water!
DSC_0813.JPG
The park has a lot of standard flat rides, but every ride looks very good and unique. Unlike some other parks..
DSC_0821.JPG
I really like the fish theme.
DSC_0823.JPG
Even the breakdance looks great!
DSC_0816.JPG
The frisbee of the park, called Nautilus.

In this area of the park, everything is just so well done.

They did an awesome job with the theming of this ride!

The Enterprise of the park is themed after a jellyfish.

You see this small parks?? Check this out! More parks should do things like this.

Those animals on the top of the tractors made me laugh. I love it!

Tea cup ride.

First coaster of the day, Twistrix! It's a bizarre Maurer AG coaster where you spin. And that's all, actually..
DSC_0847.JPG
But it was kinda fun. And at the end of the day, another cred.
DSC_0850.JPG
I like how they even put so much effort in theming the slides. Well done!
DSC_0984.JPG
The monorail of the park.
DSC_0985.JPG
Hmm.. This looks familiar..
DSC_0993.JPG
Of course, they also had a log flume.
DSC_1000.JPG
All the other rides are so well themed, I think they could have done this ride better..
DSC_1003.JPG
Troika!!
DSC_1008.JPG
I really love these rides.
DSC_1013.JPG
Another ride..
DSC_1014.JPG
The park's Wild Mouse.
DSC_2005.JPG
This ride has a mine theme. After experiencing an other coaster themed after a mine, located not so far away from this park *wink wink*, my expectations were very high. Of course, you can not compare both.. But this was still nicely done!
DSC_2008.JPG
The Mack Powered Coaster of the park, called Dynamite Express.
DSC_2011.JPG
It's a really good themed area.
DSC_0855.JPG
And now, the highlight of the day!
DSC_0859.JPG
Formule X, the launched X-car coaster.
DSC_0920.JPG
The launch was actually pretty intense. 0-70 kmh (0-45 mph) in 2 sec.
DSC_0884.JPG
Hairtime!!
DSC_0874.JPG
More little parks should have a ride like this.
DSC_0909.JPG
One word, AWESOME!
DSC_0957.JPG
What a beauty.
DSC_0947.JPG
All happy faces. (Maybe a bit too happy??)
DSC_0929.JPG
The first inversion is really crazy.
DSC_0973.JPG
Formule X launching.
DSC_0978.JPG
This ride is absolutely awesome!

One last pic of Formule X. I hope you liked it!

Wow, that Maurer looks seriously awesome for a small ride. Great report and pictures, the Dutch parks all seem to have very nice attention to details.

Awesome report! Drievliet looks like a very nice little park, the theming is very well done. Ride selection also looks very good.

Seeing the pictures of Formule X reminds me of this wonderful clip. If you can watch this video without smiling you have no heart.



Oh, and anyone care to explain what the heck is going on here? LOL!

Very cool report and great photographs! I absolutely love the theming that's prevalent throughout the park, the stylized cartoonish characters. That might be the most adorable Enterprise I've ever seen :)
That coaster dad [273] and that coaster kiddo [154]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Intimidator 305. El Toro. Skyrush.

Kiddo's faves: El Toro. Lightning Rod. Goliath (SFGAm). Wicked Cyclone. Thunderbolt (LP).

Awesome report, and great photos! I love the amount of theming in the park!! I love how they even themed a ride that typical parks don't.

Always enjoyed this park, whenever I went there. And they have themed everything up so much now!
I remember the Enterprise being part of a Lunar/Space Theming thing they had in that part of the park.
This looks much better and more fun for families. And Twistrix was pretty crazy when we rode it, back then.
And Formule X is great. Fast and zippy. I loved it!

Did they clean up or re-do their dark ride facade at all? And inside the ride itself, too?
Last visit, it really looked like it could use some Drievliet loving care.

Great TR, thank you for sharing your visit there. :)

Wow what a neat little park they have. The themeing of the flat rides looks like it's right out of Roller Coaster Tycoon 3. I would love to see some of this kind of detail in some of the small parks here in the States.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Honestly I don't know. It was the first time I visited this park. Indeed, this ride didn't stand out as nicely as the other rides. It was still nice, but compared to all the other rides in the park, this dark ride could definitely use some care.

It just seems like this ride does not belong into the park..
