Trip Report Movie Park Germany 2015

Postby JordyC » Thu May 21, 2015 2:50 am

Hey all!

Let's get straight to business. This was my first time to the park. I was told that it was a nice park, but it could be very busy in the high season. So I went in April, and I must say the park was not as crowded as I expected, and that's a good thing! My general opinion about the park; it's a good park for family's, but for thrill seekers like me? Nhah, not really. Don't get me wrong, it's a good park. Okay, enough talking! I'll show you around the park with some pics.

Here we are! Movie Park Germany.

I really like the fountain thing when you come in.

I went straight to the first attraction of the day: Alien Encounter. A Dark Water Ride themed after the Bermuda Triangle.

Sklooosh!

After our alien experience, we went to the newest attraction of the park. It's a 360° simulator, called The Lost Temple. I must say that it's pretty impressive, altough the attraction broke down and we were stuck for about 20 minutes. I'll give you a hint: it's not the last time that will happen during my visit.

Sadly, Avatar Air Glider was closed.

Our first coaster of the day. A Mack Wild Mouse Coaster. Nothing special, just another credit ;)

Splat-O-Sphere. It would've been better if we didn't get stuck in this, for about 10 minutes.

Backyardigans Mission To Mars, a Vekoma Junior Coaster. While we were waiting, the coaster broke down. Surprise.. I think it's getting pretty clear that the park was just open for about a week.
085.JPG
Dora's Big River Adventure. You really get soaked in this! Indeed, Dora made us very wet! ;)
100.JPG
Credit! A Vekoma Family Coaster, named Jimmy Neutron's Atomic Flyer. We were shocked that this ride didn't broke down while we were waiting!
117.JPG
The latest coaster of the park, Van Helsing's Factory. A Gerstlauer Bobsled, and it's was very smooth and very well themed! Defenitely the best coaster in the park!
124.JPG
NYC Transformer was also closed.
144.JPG
One of the reasons I went to this park! :D
It's a Stand-Up Free Fall Tower, called the High Fall. Altough it's only 60 meters high, it's very powerfull because of its weight -- it's very heavy.
127.JPG
Absolutely loved it! One of the best free fall towers in Europe!

Bandit, a woodie. But not just a normal woodie. Oh no! Imagine your most painful fear, and multiply it by 10. I'm not exaggerating! This really is the worst coaster I've ever ridden. Altough they retracked it during the winter, I only see one option.. Break it down! I really didn't want to spend more time on this one.

Yes, this park also has a "famous" SLC :) It's really waiting for us, it seems.
142.JPG
MP Express. It's an SLC, I think no more words are needed :D
157.JPG
At least it's photogenic.
146.JPG
The park also has a Frisbee. Side Kick.
162.JPG
A Disk'O Coaster - Crazy Surfer. It's one of the new attractions at the new themed area: Santa Monica Pier. I must say, these rides are pretty good.

A photo with the fountain thing to end the day. I hope you liked it :)

Nice report :) This is my home park, just 20 mins away and i'v been twice. Its a nice day out. I actually had a good ride on the Bandit and I rode it 3 times, it was great in the rain i'v been on worse, but that SLC... Its rough, on my second visit to the park it didn't even ride it. I also mainly visit just for the drop tower and its a great definitely my favourite attraction at the park. I think they just need a new big coaster for me to want to visit again.

Yeah, everybody has their opinion. If we all had the same one, it would be very boring, no? ;) But indeed, that SLC isn't the smoothest one out there :)
