While I’m not as big of a fan of Walibi Holland as others, they sure did show us some amazing hospitality and this group made the visit SO much fun. I’d love to return with TPR sometime after another addition.

Untamed is a great coaster, made even better by using “the method!” ;-)

I got a good laugh out of that Speed of Sound pic. Crazy how far Vekoma has come in 20 years...

Another fun memory: one-by-one, everyone in our group was peer pressured into Tomahawk. It would be the last flat of the trip for some. :lol:

I've gone pantless!

Based on my one ride on Condor back in 2008, you made a wise choice.

GREAT trip report, Andy. Thanks!!

But let's talk about:

NeuroGen !!

The PERFECT antidote to weeks of quarantine! (Thanks Larrygator for ur personal tour of NeuroGen. I wanna be there SO BAD right now! I can't believe that you couldn't get fellow trippers --- er I mean travelers -- to check it out! I'd be thru those doors in a 'New York Minute.') :lmao:

Did you ride Mad Mill? That looked about ten times worse.

If you don't know what NeuroGen is, well ... ask Larry, because I still don't know either.




Preach brother! Absolute perfection in a VR attraction. I was drugged, molested, hallucinated, died and was resuscitated. Whatmore could happen?

Blue Turbo wrote:Great report Andy! (I really enjoyed the log flume commentary) It's interesting to see a park embrace such weird/quirky theming that you don't normally see in a theme park. That and the coaster lineup puts this park pretty high on my must get to at some point list.


Flumes are always great for a laugh, especially with how everyone over-acts from a few splashes of water!

cfc wrote:Untamed was my favorite coaster of the whole trip--beautifully paced and very re-rideable (and the quirky theming was a plus, too).


It was my favorite also, but I have Wildfire right below it. No question that Untamed is better paced -- perfectly paced, even. I just think those first few elements on Wildfire, with the view over the forest and the water, are just about unbeatable. Tough call between those two.

Ugh, that's not helping! I'm already upset I missed it!

CenturyFlyer wrote:Your pictures are amazing! They are way better at capturing the feeling of the ride experience than any distant picture of a support structure, no matter how nice those may be. I even recognize one group of riders on Untamed from the April ACE coaster calendar picture (not the place, I know...). :)

Two thumbs up on the report!


Thanks! I may have taken a few pictures of the support structure, but those aren't as fun. ;)

Last-few-years Vekoma is such a world of difference from everything that came before. Can you imagine if they replaced El Condor with a bigger version of what they just put in a Tripsdrill? They could even call it Son of El Condor. (Hijo Del Cóndor?)

Did anybody ride more than like, 3 things at Duinrell? That place was mobbed.

Laughing about Tomahawk, though. Not sure anyone really wanted to ride it, and we may have passed the time queuing by referencing some ... recent incidents ... with other similar rides ... :lmao:

LOL! I was thinking the same thing. "Wait, AJ, you actually got to ride things at Duinrell?" :lol:

I had also forgotten about the 3rd raft experience until this moment. Oh my...

I'm realizing I don't actually have any pictures of us riding the raft at Duinrell, which probably means I was too worried about the thing sinking to be taking pictures. :lmao:
