^^ Me, I would just plan a super Germany trip - there's at least twenty parks that I would deem of interest (something larger than a Kiddie coaster.) Since the country is half the size of Texas, I can definitely say that Germany has a very high "coaster density" - and driving between each one shouldn't be too bad in terms of length - not accounting for traffic.

Driving between each one involves the Autobahn. That's almost like a ride unto itself! I loved it!

Europa Park is one of my all-time faves. None of the rides are really must-do rides by themselves, but there are dozens of rides that are above average. Many of them are unlike any ride in the US, and the park's landscaping and look rival Kennywood or BGW. It's a beautiful place.

The can't-miss coaster in Germany, though, is Expedition GeForce. I could justify the price of a trip back to Deutschland even if that was the only coaster I got to do.

True and I second what texcoaster said. But I already did Germany multiple times and there are so much more parks in the world! So I only visit parks which build a new ride. ;)

And it's also true about speed on the "autobahn", but unfortunately the dutch insurance doesn't pay out when you are driving faster than 130 km/h and you're in some kind of accident... Not that I had experience with such a situation... ;)

^ In my experience, driving as slow as 130kph is likely to CAUSE an accident on the Autobahn!!!

Much like someone going 30mph in the fast lane in Los Angeles....

A trend with wooden coasters with twisty drops.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

The new pictures are great! Thanks for sharing.

^I don't see it as a trend. Twisting drops have been around for a long time.
