EEeek, Hanno, you've made me so excited about finally getting to Europa Park this September!

A little worried that I'll only have one day to try and see as much as I can... but, we picked September for the quietness, so... here's hoping!

But, awesome report! I'm sure I'll read it a few times between now and when I get there! :lolr:

2 + 2 = donkey!

I remember hearing about those bumper cars when they were first announced. Don't think I've ever seen any photos before now, though. Seems like a really cool idea.

Awesome photos, as always.

A while back i did a quick update regarding El Toro. The new GCI at Freizeitpark Plohn (Germany) link

Well this park has more to offer then only a new GCI. The following will be a quick impression of the park and it's rides there.

It is an interesting place and for me personally well worth the trip there...
