Beautiful pics as usual, Hanno. These parks look like a hybrid of a cheesy carnival with hefty theming mixed in.

(And only TWO pictures of the LoopingStar?????)

Next stop on this trip..
Day 3: Mirabilandia

Home to some of the greatest coasters in Europe..
iSpeed and Katun.

It was a hot day and the parks latest attraction (Divertical) was a welcome addition to the park as it managed to cool me down a little (for a while)
Last part of the day we got to see the local stuntshow, but more on that in the next update ;)

Anyway. Here's a few pictures from this day in the park.

enjoy and feel free to comment.

So to end the awesome day at Mirabilandia we got to visit the local stuntshow.
This show today was more awesome then usual.. due to Robb and Elissa being part of it.

Nobody anticipated (i think) they would be doing this many things in the show.. but i'm pretty sure they enjoyed it ;)

I tried to get as many action pictures as possible of them and the show.. so here we go.
A "few" pictures from the Mirabilandia stuntshow ;)

This was the most terrifying and amazing thing I've pretty much ever done at a theme park!

They pretty much spoke no English, I spoke pretty much no Italian, it was a lot of pointing and "hold here".

Still picking pieces of rubber off of me though.

These are amazing photos. This is seriously one of the craziest things I've ever seen a park do with guests. NEVER IN AMERICA!

That stunt show looks insane! I don't think any park in America would they allow someone to do that and without anything safe equipment on. Great update!
