Also known as Tibiyabbadabbado, when the bus finally made it's way up the tiny winding streets to the top of the mountain, we were told we couldn't go all the way up in the bus as there was no where to turn around. So we all had to get out and walk up the rest of the way, if you've ever been to SFMM it was basically was the equivilant of walking up "the hill" twice.
Sitting high above Barcelona, Tibidabo is a small park covering six different levels on the side of the mountain. They have two coasters, and many family flats spread about.
Montaña Rusa, which is Spanish for Roller Coaster, was built by the park, and it looked like it! A fun coaster made extra thrilling with the view from being on the highest level of the park. The other coaster is Tibidao Express, a custom Zamperla Super Express featuring a very dark tunnel and some VERY sharp turns which if you're not ready for, will slam you from side to side.
Other rides include a log flume that was fun, but gladly didn't get us wet. A haunted house/ fun house which was REALLY fun as it had a lot of darkness, a couple scenes and a lot of basic fun house stuff (moving floors, stuff you have to push out of your way and such) The plane on a stick was great. It was a real plane just attached to the tower and it even had a bathroom in there. Ed played a funny trick on Lou with the window. There were these little knobs that turned to roll them down and Lou's was right behind her seat and Ed slowly turned it and it kinda freaked her out as she could not figure out what was going on with her window.
The bucket of death gets it's own paragraph. It was really funny as the bucket you're in swings freely (think of any booster, just really slow) so when it stops to let the other end of the arm unload/ load, the sudden stop swings the bucket a bit, which is terrifying in itself. So we get up to the top and I get my pics of the view and I say "Hurry up and get on this side of the bucket so we can get a group picture before it starts moving again." There must have been microphones because the second everyone let go of the sides it started moving!
A few people decided to break off from the group and head into the Barcelona on their own, I decided it wasn't nearly enough time as I wanted and it was extra cash so I stayed at the park and just headed back
The Drive up was scary so I put on my seat belt incase we went off the side of one of the cliffs!
Beautiful chruch on top of the mountain.

It's kinda like RCT, everything's on top of each other.

Robb tried on Lou's graduation cap.

LOL at this whole Photo TR, so awesome!!! Makes me wish I actually remembered to take my camera with me (and, well, use it) every day on trips, but hell, who needs to when you have friends like Hector who take better pictures of you that you can leech!!
Thanks for telling the "Lou thought the window was possessed" story... I'm not even sure what I thought was happening, but at least you didn't tell the "Lou almost got killed by a cyclist and it was all Robb's fault!" story!!
Can't wait for more Hector, I'm loving it!!
Oh, and this picture/caption combination cracked me up! =)
Sweet Photo TR, Hector. I wish I had been on the Plane instead of infront of the control booth when Lou saw the window going down and freaked out LOL
And I'm glad you wrote something about the Wave Swingers, because I think that they are pretty damn fast too.
BTW, the Buckets on a Stick are not as deathy as you make out hahaha you just have to be used to the height and the tilting of the bucket
It was a nice opportuniy to meet some of you (those who came to the Plane Ride ) though you spent little time in the park Well, maybe you could come back when the Vekoma Terrain Coaster opens next year.
