Aww, I knew it had to happen eventually....the last of the "mini" updates!
We will do FULL updates (4 or 5 pages of photos for each park) very soon!
Our last park was Phantasialand (which we actually visited over 2 days, but for the sake of this update just pretend it was all the same day, ok?)
Elissa and I had been to this park before, and it's a really nice resort. The park is fun and the hotel is GREAT!
New to us was "Black Mamba", which we really liked, but I have to be honest it was a little disappointing. The themed area was AMAZING, but the ride itself just lacked the *punch* that it would appear to have.
Oh, well, there is always Winjas! I still think Winjas is one of the "coolest" coasters ever build. It's weird in that same way that Europa's "EuroMir" is weird. While on the surface it might look like a well themed spinning coaster, but it does these "weird" things that can only be described by riding it. It does things that NO other coaster does! We didn't tell anyone about the surprises and I'm glad we didn't because it really took some people off guard!
Then there was Talocan, the new top spin that opened this year. While it's kind of enclosed, it's really only half "in a box" while the other side is insane fire and water effects. More more intense than any of the US "themed top spins" I've seen.
And the program was AWESOME! We flipped like 7 times!!!
Anyway, enough rambling on.....
