That park reminds me of Disney w/the Monorail & Pirates. But I always like all the pictures of Robb. They're hysterical!

"Emo Group", I think not. We were having a great time watching kids run through the fountain with play-by-play commentary and laughing our butts off whenever a kid fell and had to be carted off the field.

^ I think it was just because you guys *looked* like the emo group. You all totally looked like the sad and dejected high school group disassociating yourselves with everyone else! The funny thing is, that I noticed you all up there looking that way so took a picture of the group, only to find that Big Mike and Hanno ALSO took the same picture!!! So apparently I wasn't the only one who thought you guys looked emo! :lolr:

Europa is also my favorite non disney park in the world. I loved that place and could easily go back today. Great resort, great park, great fountain.

^^^We do look upset. :lolr: We probably looked emo because the real fountain show was going on and there were no kids running through the fountain hurting themselves at this time.

Seriously most of us had a blast sitting up there. It was initially a group of about 10 people and we probably had half the TPR at one time.

That Hotel was a blast.

I absolutely loved Europa Park - it was my favorite park of the entire trip (which is saying a lot, considering some of the amazing parks we visited). Gorgeous theming - great collection of rides and coasters. (Now if they'd just do something about those pesky trim brakes on Silver Star...) Good food too - the fish sandwiches in Scandinavia land were delicious. I'm so glad we got to spend two days (and two nites) here!

Hotel Colosseo was breath-taking, one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. Everything was great - the theming, the coliseum seating with the torch fires, the food, the ice cream, the fountain, the delicious drinks at the bar - and a special thanks to our lovely waitress Katja for taking such good care of us all!

I noticed Europa Park was clearing ground for a new coaster (2009?) All the more reason to go back! I could seriously spend a week at this place.

I know EXACTLY where my passport is!

There's a topic on it somewhere, basically a launch coaster with "loop-de-loops" (a strange concept for Europa!). Hopefully it'll live up to the high standard of the rest of the park :)
