Jardin was a great update! Almost every caption had me laughing. Nice Indiana Jones reference.

Can't wait to see this Coaster Expedition DVD later. Cheers and best everybody. =)

Great Update! Kept me laughing as usual! Its always cool to see pictures of a couple of small European parks that you usually don't hear about.

Have fun at Parc Asterix and the rest of the trip!

Robb, no more pics of Big Mike please. TPR is inundated with enough of them in the "I adore myself Big Mike Roadshow" thread. :lolr:

Day One - Parc Asterix

I've not had much time for full updates so I'll get everyone caught up on these mini-updates.
asterix06.jpg
Theme Parks based on cartoon characters is sexy!
asterix65.jpg
Our first group photo! Yay!
asterix15.jpg
Time for some bobsled that "Isn't themed to a bobsled" ERT.
asterix13.jpg
Poor, poor Jeff. We gave him a good burial.
asterix19.jpg
Oooh....we see you evil vekoma death machine! We will get to you later.
asterix23.jpg
But first some woodie ERT!
asterix25.jpg
Zeus looks pissed off with us.
asterix20.jpg
Ahh, this is why. He's secretly a cross dresser and wants to hang out with the panthers.
asterix81.jpg
Tonerre de Zeus was running very well!
asterix97.jpg
Here is the "credit whore" group.
asterix46.jpg
Young Jeff adds another one to the count.
asterix47.jpg
Steve is getting all the credits in quickly so he can get back to the bar.
asterix103.jpg
"Beat you there Steve!"
asterix108.jpg
Time for lunch....
asterix107.jpg
...KidTums is old enough to get her own seat!
asterix114.jpg
TPR takeover on the new mad house!
asterix115.jpg
First get your picture taken....
asterix03.jpg
And they turn you into one of Caesar's soldiers!
asterix117.jpg
Many faces of the TPR army.
asterix89.jpg
It was a great day at Asterix...on to our next stop on TPR's 2008 Europe Tour. Walibi Belgium!

These reports have been so awesome so far, I so wish that I could be there...and as I always say, "Maybe...someday, I'll get there!".

- There are so many things about this trip that have been so much fun to see so far. Never get tired of seeing Zeus in panties! It's sounds like it could be another movie, I mean we already have Men in Tights! :lolr:

- Plus, I love the way so many parks are starting to incorparate photography and visual imagery to get the riders involved, (such as the mad house and the Simpsons, and to some extent the Dark Knight coasters).

- Kidtums has been adorable, and the pics at the Eiffel Tower are classic. :lolr:

- And as I said in an earlier comment, some of these parks have been so unique and crazy, they are almost irresistable.

Day Two - Part One - Walibi Belgium or "Wobbly Belgium"
walibibelgium_04.jpg
Mr. Wobbly himself was there to meet the group!
walibibelgium_57.jpg
A little bit of woodie ERT makes the group VERY happy! (Even if it is a Vekoma woodie.)
walibibelgium_54.jpg
See! Happy! =)
walibibelgium_58.jpg
And for a Vekoma, you would think it would be rough, but it's really not. Loup Garou is a really fun coaster!
walibibelgium_78.jpg
For ERT we also had Cobra - Cha Ching!
walibibelgium_07.jpg
But the ERT favorite seemed to be Turbine!
walibibelgium_64.jpg
A whole lotta love for this classic Schwarzkopf shuttle loop! (Thankfully we didn't get stuck upside down!) =)
walibibelgium_66.jpg
Hello everyone. Meet Bob. He makes the ride awesome.
walibibelgium_67.jpg
Now it was "Sad and Pathetic" kiddie coaster time.
walibibelgium_68.jpg
They allowed us to ride provided that 1. We rode only two adults per train and 2. we had to say to the camera "I'm Sad and Pathetic." (Wait until you see the footage, it's AWESOME!) =)
walibibelgium_70.jpg
"Hi, my name is Steve and I am sad and pathetic."
walibibelgium_37.jpg
"Is that a bird on my head? Um, yeah...why is there a bird on my head?"
walibibelgium_25.jpg
Here's a very good Vekoma mine train!
walibibelgium_23.jpg
It's exactly the same as the new one at Hard Rock Park, but this one has some nice theming!
walibibelgium_27.jpg
We met up with some friends of Theme Park Review!
walibibelgium_28.jpg
We love it when the local TPR hot chicks meet up with us! (Big Mike loves it too!)
walibibelgium_33.jpg
These are the photos that make men cringe!
walibibelgium_46.jpg
Noted!
walibibelgium_60.jpg
Damn you!
walibibelgium_61.jpg
Yeah, Turbine was awesome.
walibibelgium_88.jpg
"Cow Room"
walibibelgium_90.jpg
A cream-filled snack before heading out of the park.
walibibelgium_49.jpg
On the bus there was a bit of hot action.
walibibelgium_101.jpg
Except for the old people. They missed out.
walibibelgium_98.jpg
The hotel bar was rockin with beer and billiards.
walibibelgium_99.jpg
Even KidTums got in on the action!
walibibelgium_01.jpg
Here you go Kristen, this is more baby friendly.....what are you spelling with your Legos?
walibibelgium_02.jpg
Awwww....

Next up the Adventure Parc ropes course!

The classic!
