robbalvey wrote:^ I think it was just because you guys *looked* like the emo group. You all totally looked like the sad and dejected high school group disassociating yourselves with everyone else! The funny thing is, that I noticed you all up there looking that way so took a picture of the group, only to find that Big Mike and Hanno ALSO took the same picture!!! So apparently I wasn't the only one who thought you guys looked emo! :lolr:

LMAO! Hilarious Rob just great. Like was said a few times this park also reminds me of Disney. And that spinning coaster looks fantastic! Thanks for the Photo TR Rob!

Dare I suggest...

Europa = Heaven.

Feeling better near the end of the tour, the amazingly laid-out Europa Park and the magnificent Colossos Hotel surely bolstered my touring spirits, lol.

And Euro-Mir DID NOT DISAPPOINT. I was so thrilled to be riding this coaster in the tour. It was one of The Ones I'd always wanted to ride, never knowing if I ever could get the chance to... until the TPR Tour.

It did not disappoint.
At - all.
Hey, I even bought the CD of the attraction's soundtrack, LOL!

Great update once again!!

It's been awesome to follow the trip, needless to say I would've loved to join. Still it's cool to see many Spain trip participants and 'new' people enjoying Europe and having a blast :)

Oh and that hotel and food looks tasty.

Interestingly enough I don't think Euro Mir was that special, good?, oh yes... maybe because I only rode (got to ride) it once, the weight distribution/spinning wasn't really in my favour then.

Yeah, Europa Park is a awesome place, also it's looking even better with the new coaster coming to fill the sort of 'gap' it had in the coaster department.

Have to go back there.

with TPR.

Ah, Europa... one of my home parks! I didn't know Europa Park was considered to be one of the best in Europe! I really like the picture of the 'inside' of the Euro-Mir mirror towers. I've never seen that before! I agree, Euro-Mir is one of the most unique coasters ever. Although, I do think the techno spiral lift is a bit long!

Did you guys happen to try the Greek food near Poesidon? It's quite delicious and I recommend it for the next time you go there! Also, did you guys also happen to try the Bananenweizen (Banana beer) there as well? It's one of my favourites because it's so sweet!

Nice pictures, looks like you guys had much fun!

Day 11 - Walygator Parc
Well, we spent more time at Europa in the morning/early afternoon and then hit Walygator as a 'rest stop' on the way to Disney....
waltgator102.jpg
Do we ever get sick of group photos? Not as long as you guys don't get sick of looking at them! =)
waltgator55.jpg
Walygator was a very "strange" experience in that it seemed like we were the only people in the park...but it seemed like not only were the only people, but could we have been the only people to have visited in MONTHS?!?!?
waltgator58.jpg
Parts of the park just looked deserted....
waltgator61.jpg
Other parts just looked abandoned!
waltgator62.jpg
We weren't sure if this plane crash was theming, or if it was an ACTUAL plane crash, but nobody was around to notice!!! =)
waltgator75.jpg
Oh, what does it matter? There are credits here!
waltgator77.jpg
The real whores don't care what the park looks like! Just give me a coaster!!!!
waltgator87.jpg
All the boats going like they should be filled with riders...but NOBODY around. Very creepy!
waltgator78.jpg
Oh, no...what is that?
waltgator117.jpg
Yes! We have found it! The SPACE COMPUTER!!!
waltgator79.jpg
I never knew that the Space Computer was in the form of a Vekoma death machine!
waltgator96.jpg
Yup! There are credits! And once again, we are the ONLY people riding it!
waltgator111.jpg
Odly enough, it really wasn't THAT bad!
waltgator67.jpg
"Please come ride my ride...I haven't seen another human since 1984."
waltgator107.jpg
So THAT is where everyone is!
waltgator121.jpg
"Please do not leave me alone in this creepy place! They will EAT ME!!!"
waltgator88.jpg
Ahh, very interesting....apparently the inhabitants of this park are GIANTS!
waltgator119.jpg
PLEASE DO NOT LET THEM EAT ME!!!
waltgator112.jpg
OMG!!!! They....they.....THEY ARE ALL GIANT BIRDS!!!!
waltgator131.jpg
This must be their leader... "Fatal Bazooka?!?!?"
waltgator130.jpg
Crap! They've captured Chuck!
waltgator129.jpg
NOOOO!!!! The place is overun by GIANT REPTILES!!!!
waltgator82.jpg
Oh, the irony! "Terror House" could be the name of the park!
waltgator85.jpg
Is there where Fatal Bazooka lives?
waltgator127.jpg
Big Mike says "This isn't a prop! This is an actual park employee still on payroll!"
waltgator83.jpg
Aha! It all makes sense now..."Space Computer", mutated reptiles, Fatal Bazooka....this place is run by ALIENS!!!
waltgator101.jpg
It LOOKS like a Go Kart track, but really it's the space port where the aliens fly in and out of.
waltgator113.jpg
Good thing the aliens knew how to build a wood coaster!
waltgator104.jpg
The ride kind of reminded me a LOT of Great America's Grizzly!
waltgator124.jpg
OMG! This is where they are keeping all the people! They are forced to ride Anaconda over and over again!
waltgator73.jpg
"Be careful not to get captured on the exit platform!"
waltgator114.jpg
Ahhh, darn. Chris, Hanno, and Piers didn't make it...
waltgator126.jpg
"....this was the last picture we ever saw of them...."
waltgator97.jpg
It *looks* steep.
waltgator56.jpg
Everyone was tagged with these neon orange stickers to keep track of the prisoners.
waltgator68.jpg
OMG!!! Just moments after we rode this GIANT MUTATED SNAKE ate the wooden roller coaster!!!!
waltgator110.jpg
Did we mention that the employees were zombies?
waltgator98.jpg
Head chopper! No, no...REALLY...that actually *IS* a head chopper! DUCK!!!!!
waltgator90.jpg
No! We were all captured and forced to ride this giant tortue device for hours and hours!
waltgator99.jpg
Ok, ok...Hi...This is Robb & Elissa. In all seriousness, the park was FINE! We just happened to hit it on a REALLY empty day which made for some GREAT photos and a really funny story to go with it! We hope you enjoyed this little bit of TPR fiction.....Or WAS it? Maybe the alien zombies have BRAINWASHED US!!!! MWHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

I'll have red wine with my slice of donkey.

Oh dear, I don't think I'll ever go on a TPR trip now, for fear of zombification.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I don't believe that the aliens actually have the *real* Space Computer. The Space Computer would have designed a much better woodie than Anaconda.
