OMG!!! I learned about El Ave in Spanish class. It's one of the fastest trains on the planet, i believe it goes around 200 km/h. It was named after a spanish bird, which is why the logo has a seagull like graphic. I can't believe that you guys were on it.

As for the drop tower, my spanish tells me that they run programs at different highs(all the way, middle, and low) and goes up and drops a certain amount of times. Probably to meet the thrill standards of everyone.

200 km/h is nothing. Almost every country with developed high-speed rail lines has trains capable of at least those speeds or greater. Heck, even the USA with its pitiful national rail system even has Acela, which tops out at over 200 km/h.


Looks fun, but that seems like quite a bit of travel just for the one small park in Seville.

The drop tower levels are actually refering to "emotional" levels, if you take another glance at the picture, not the height that the ride goes to. It also uses the symbols that ski areas use for beginner, intermediate, and advanced trails.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

Great stuff so far! Makes me really wanna make it to one of the trips next year.

Funny how an SLC seems to be more popular when it has an extra helix.
