Nice video! , I'm glad you guys having such a good time in Europe. I feel sorry for the crap people throw at you guys because of your opinion about Baron 1898 and Lost Gravity, tho I only have ridden Baron 1898, I completely agree to your point that it isn't a worldclass ride, lots of the people (nerds) here think because this is the first B&M The Netherlands got, it's OMG AWESOME INSANE EPIC and are a little autistic about that.
So now you have been to Walibi, don't you agree RMC can make an awesome rollercoaster out of Robin Hood? Darn make that happen!

I just want to make something perfectly clear. *I* did not start this whole "Lost Gravity/Baron" comparison - One of the Dutch fanboys did. I only responded to the question. IMO, those two rides SHOULDN'T be compared. I feel like the Dutch coaster geeks are only comparing the two because they are A. Roller Coasters and B. New
I wouldn't compare those two rides like I wouldn't compare Expedition Everest to Incredible Hulk in my hometown of Orlando. One is a 'themed attraction" and one is a "kick ass roller coaster."
I feel the same about these two rides. I would NOT compare them if it was me creating the topic. But I did respond to the question, so if they want to make a big deal because one guy asked me a question, meh, I don't really care.
Awesome video! The first half on Lost Gravity is REALLY solid! I'm not a huge fan of hangtime so I didn't feel that the second half quite lived up to the craziness of the first half. But it's a really great ride that I enjoyed very much! And in the end the only thing that matters is that you were giggling like a little girl, and that's what riding rollercoasters is all about!
I'm just glad to hear you had/have a great time in the Netherlands (despite "circumstances"). Really look forward to see where this trip goes next.

About the Efteling fanboys, they remind me a bit of many Gardaland fanboys I see- according to them there is no ride in the world that is better than any ride at Gardaland.
(to them: Blue Tornado (Gardaland's Vekoma SLC)>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Katun (Mirabilandia's B&M Invert)
Either way, there's crappy fanbases everywhere. Just gotta shrug your shoulders and move on. Nothing we can really do.
So what countries are you gonna stop by after Holland?
Oh well, I guess I won't be riding any coasters any time soon... Within the next 10 minutes anyways. Best: Katun & iSpeed - Mirabilandia, Formula Rossa - Ferrari World, Oblivion - The Black Hole - Gardaland, Stealth - Thorpe Park
