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:

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.
