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

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!
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?)

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