Preach. ;)

Great start Chuck. Looking forward to more of that tour we did.

We're not done with Europe just yet. Not by a long shot.

Great stuff, Chuck. Yeah, the queue for Crush's Coaster was bizzarely long.
And boring. Until you got in the show building, itself. But still. Tres long.

Great report!

With the new trains, Paris's Hyperspace Mountain was enjoyable for me. But I totally see how that would have been brutal with the old OSTRs since it definitely jostles you around.

^ I went thru riding Space Mountain in DisneyParis on several visits: 2002, 2004, 2007, 2008, 2015....
It seemed to hurt like heck, every time I had those over-the-shoulder-restraints....<sigh> I believe
the initial riding, in 2002 was the best.

I'm willing to give it another chance with the new trains. Vekoma has even made Boomerangs bearable with those.

Scandi 2009

Ah, Scandinavia! Can you not smell the salt air, salmon, and pickled herring? Do you not hear the battle cry of the Vikings? Let's go back to 2009 and the region that gave us Epcot's Maelstrom, er, Frozen Ever After.

Yes, vee haf passed zis way before, and vill pass zis way again (as the narrator of Epcot's Maelstrom might've put it). This trip started in Denmark and took us to parks in Sweden, Finland, and Norway (with a bit of time in Germany, as I recall).

You'll recall that we had previously visited Tusenfryd and Liseberg, but the remaining parks were all new to me. It was great to finally see the acutal Tivoli Gardens after experiencing the Japanese version. But the Japanese parks had nothing on the Scandinavian parks when it came to sheer weirdness.

We started in beautiful Copenhagen.

Our hotel was a short walk to the classic Tivoli Gardens, although that isn't where we started.
