Part One: Halloween in Bobbejaanland

This is my first trip report I'm writing and my English isn't perfect, so don't mind any spelling mistakes.

Today, I decided to spend an afternoon at Bobbejaanland. The weather was good but kids have vacation, so the park was pretty crowded. The most wait times on the most popular rides were between 30 and 60 minutes. For the mazes, you had to wait about 30 minutes. I didn't do all the rides because I didn't had time to do them all, so I do not have pictures from everything.
Now, let's go to the pictures.

The first thing I did was 'The Doll Factory', a maze themed in hospital style. It's pretty scary if they send you in on your own.

Then I went to the Typhoon, a Gerstlauer Eurofighter. It is quite rough if you are sitting in the first row. 7/10

Up next was the Dreamcatcher. 6/10

Here is a simulation I made of how this coaster was when it opened (it was called 'Air Race back then.)


After that, I went to Oki Doki, the kiddie coaster of the park. It has some air time only if you're on the back row. 5/10

The next maze that I did was Sonar. This is the newest maze. It is themed like a submarine and all the people on board are infected with a virus.

Then I went to Sledgehammer and Naga Bay. This coaster was rethemed during last winter, therefore it was called 'Dizz'. 5/10

I ended my day with the last maze 'Bazaar Bizarre', a mirror maze full of clowns. Before you enter, you need to put on 3D glasses because there are some 3D paintings on the walls and the clowns have 3D paint on their costumes and faces.

Here are some pictures of the scarezones:

zone 1: Plaza de Los Muertos

zone 2: Haunted Woods

The third zone 'Childhood Fears' is only open when the park is open until 9 PM (not today). You need to walk through Kinderland, where actors are dressed up like big babies, toys, bears, ... It is everything but a classic maze or scarezone and very funny.

The Aztek Express was closed due to the accident last saturday (If you don't know what happened, click here.)

I still don't understand how you can fall in it.

Great report! Bobbejaanland has always looked like a fascinating park because of the oddball theming.

Dizz's track looks very odd for a Maurer spinner. The track is a lot beefier than their other spinners. I took a look on RCDB, and their other ones doesn't have the extra spine. Does anyone know why this installation specifically may have it?
Top 5 Wood- Phoenix, Boulder Dash, Wildfire, Balder, Voyage
Top 5 Steel- Expedition GeForce, Iron Rattler, Fury 325, Twisted Colossus, Shambhala
Top 5 Parks- Europa Park, Cedar Point, Disneyland, Phantasialand, Knoebels

I've only been to Bobbejaanland once, and I enjoyed it quite a bit--such a wonderfully odd park. Thanks for the report.
