The Official "TPR Europe Trip 2008" Thread!

Postby robbalvey » Mon Jun 23, 2008 5:20 pm

Hey everyone!!!

TPR's Europe Trip 2008 has officially begun! We will be doing trip updates as often as possible.

For starters we have posted the arrival and "credit whore" day as some of us visited a few bonus parks prior to the official trip starting.

Check out "Park Saint Paul" with some WEIRD Pax coasters and Mer de Sable with too much "Western" Theming.

Please post your responses here!

Wow, very interesting report, especially those PAX coasters. Would love to see a POV - but it looks like it might have been slightly dangerous to make one!

Thanks for sharing!

Just some random thoughts:

*The Kyle cutout is great!
*Love the hanno photo....Lou seems so dramatic.
*Some pretty interesting coasters.
*Already sick of seeing Big Mike ;)
*There will be far too many responses that say "Looks like you guys are having fun", "Wish I were there", and "Where are the updates?"

I want a tally of those who lose their luggage!

^No lost luggage, that's pretty good, I thought Charles De Gaulle and Heathrow airports were like black holes that the world's luggage just vanishes into.

That Pax coaster looks outrageous.

There is no way on this planet that any of those PAX coasters would ever make it here in the U.S. I think they'd have "lawsuit" written all over them.

But that green-tracked thing looks...interesting.

Can't agree more about those PAX coasters. Formule 1 looked really good from what I saw and Wild Train, well it looked wild. How did they compare to more common compact coasters like wild mice or galaxies?

Since you've already covered all that, I say someone should delete all further similar posts!

Can't wait for the Telepherique POV. I loved those zip-line sort of things when I was a kid, but now that I am 6.5 feet tall, it is hard for me to find adult sized ones!

Oh my cherries!

I'm SO sad I'm not out there with you guys! I'm at home, sick, and sorting thru stuff, deciding what I want my parents to take to Tennessee with them.

Those Parc Saint-Paul coasters look amazing. I love how the rides everywhere in Europe are so different than what we have here in the states.

But...I'm not gonna lie, I'm already sick of seeing the same 10 people in every update! :P

Damn Robb, looks like fun and you have certainly way out done yourself with the comments in the Photo TR, those are F*&^ING hilarious. That mine train coaster is way messed up, almost like they dug it up and unearthed it and went "what the hell, let's see if it still works?"
Who was that again?
