Our next stop on the "real add-on trip" was Linnanmaki near Helsinki, Finland....

Robb's farts knocked out everyone in the car!!!

Oooh!  Pretty rainbow colored sign is the next park on our trip.

Any park that has a statue of a baby holding a GIANT FISH is ok by me!

Our first credit of the day!  Vuoristorata....or um....we'll just call it "Roller Coaster" for short!

"Before I ride any roller coaster, I need some battery drink to recharge my old man body!"

Which way do we go?

So, it's a wooden roller coaster, just so that's clear.

It's one of them "old fashioned" type coasters sometimes called a "Scenic Railway."


The brake man always sits behind the pink haired girl.

"Hey, it's those people from the TV shows!"

See, on an old-school Scenic Railway, there isn't any "upstops" or the wheels under the track.  So the brakeman keeps you from flying off!

Not sure what the big deal is about El Toro's cable lift hill...this one has had it since 1951!

Here's the park. Like it?  Love it?  GOOD!

Oddly enough....this ride looks strangely like Balder!

It just don't have the crazy airtime that Balder has!

But for a Scenic Railway, it's actually quite a wild ride!

Oooh!  Double Down!

Oooh! Tunnels!  I like tunnels!!!!

"When's my break?"

So all the brakemen have their profiles on the ride!  They're FAMOUS!!!!

(nice sugar cubes, BTW!)

Here is something that Dan will never be able to eat!
