^ Comments like that probably scared her off from doing trips. ;) :Pr

Anyway, Furius Bacon looks really sweet. Too bad it's rough, because it looks like it could be totally amazing. I LOVE the launch followed by the drop, totally insane.

That baco ride looks sweet, even if it is rough i'm sure riding outside of the track must be awesome. :P + it's launched! Anyone care to tell me what's going on in this picture???

Nice update again.

In exactly 3 days, I'll be part of the TPR gang for the afternoon in Toverland. I'm really really looking forward to this.

To conclude : Big Mike ! Big Mike ! Big Mike ! Big Mike !

Today we were at Tibidabo which is a smaller park located on top of a mountain in Barcelona. The views from the park are AMAZING!!!

The park itself was kind of odd, since it was built on 6 different levels of the mountain which you could even take an elevator down to each different area.

They also seemed to be known for some of their "home made" rides like the "plane on a stick" ride where you climb on board an actual (looks like) 1920s plane and fly around in a circle. The propeller of the plane ACTUALLY powers it's motion!

They also had 1 credit there, a very odd looking "Galaxi" type coaster.

And beware of the people in the elevators....they are very odd!

Onto some photos....

The entrance of Tibidabo. Exciting, huh?

And yup, the credit whore always gets his coaster! (CLOSE YOUR MOUTH JEFF!!!!)

We are about to ride the scary plane on a stick. Seriously, we're freaking terrified!

The inside looks like it hasn't been touched in 50 years....creepy!!!

But the view is totally awesome if you can enjoy it in between crapping your pants.

Seriously, this ride is totally freaky!

Now for the "It looks like a ghetto Skyscraper, but it's really just a bucket on a stick" ride.

I still have white knuckles and blue balls from this ride!

We're coaster enthusiasts....of COURSE we need a tray full of hot dogs!

STOP CHEATING!!!

Oh, I see....they wanted the collection of blow up animals. Put that Zebra to good use! ;)

Yay! Random coaster shot to appease the fanboys!

More credit whores doing their thing.

Rich finally found a group he fits in with.

The elevator operators....more frightening than the plan on a stick ride!
tibidabo_18.jpg
So long from Tibidabo....where the view is great and the rides are BIZARRE!

AWESOME-O-SAURUS!!!

Robb, after introducing Kidtums to furries, now you introduce her to cosplayers. Parent of the year! :P Also, the arcade at my local Bowling alley has that same exact mini basketball game. Good fun to cheat with :P .

Great update about Tibidabo, probably the craziest park in the Spain trip by far!
-My butt has touched 112 roller coasters, how unfortunate.

Enjoying the hot Scottish summer!

We did Tibidabo in 2003 with the ECC and that Plane and "Booster" are really, really scary - but the views from that park are stunning!

Looks like you all have fun - which is good to hear.
