I completely LOVE those rides like Bouncy Bouncy. I rode one last year at the CA State Fair, and they say they're just a kiddie ride, but they have some crazy ejector air at the top.

And about Ramses, I build things like that in Rollercoaster Tycoon all the time. Peeps love them. :)

Wow, they're really covering the country, aren't they?

I keep forgetting how easy it is to cover one country (if not more than one) in just a few hours sometimes, over there. (Depending on the country, 'course...)

PORTAVENTURA IS FREAKING AMAZING!!!!

I'm totally serious! I was expecting a park on par with the Busch parks or Alton Towers, but PortAventura is easily on par with Islands of Adventure, Disney parks, Europa, etc.

The theming is AMAZING, the rides are great, the operations are top notch, I can't say enough how great the park is.

Since it's 1:36am and I'm posting this from the bar patio I'll make this quick.

- Furius Baco - OMFG. This ride beats the living hell out of you. Rapes you and steals your children. But it's FREAKING AMAZING! It goes in that "It's amazing but I hate it" category.

- Stampida - If the ride was smoother it would be great. I think the new trains could have really hurt this ride. But we had an hour of ERT on it this morning and we all had a really good time.

- Dragon Khan - Don't ride in the green train! It's awesome! Some of us like it better than Kumba, some of us think it's REALLY REALLY close. Overall, great ride!

ok, time for photos and videos....

It's 1:36am, we're at the bar, and we're posting the update!

The entrance to PortAventura....what...what else am I supposed to write? It's a freaking sign!!!!
portaventura_02.jpg
Furius Baco - Yup, another sign. So this ride is themed to drunken monkeys in a vineyard. Yeah...these monkeys will KICK YOUR FREAKING A$$, but you'll totally enjoy every second of it.

Heh heh.

I take it the "Retard Yellow Hat Club"

is a new group of Tpr-ers to be reckoned with? (WTF is 'reckon'?)

Like Ye Olde BOTB Clube?

:wink:

Baco looks freaky. In a good keg-like kinda way, lol.

Nice trip report! I loved the stampida pov! Sucks that the trims on the firdt drop are magnetic, (it suck that they are there at all too!) but atleast regular ones can be turned off most of the time.
