Hope you guys have (had) fun in Italy. Beware of the SLC, Has anyone ever been on an SLC with the extra helix at the end? And if so, how is it?

Jeeze, 15 days in Europe, and traveling from park to park, how do you do it?

Think about it, plane tickets, car/travel, park tickets, food, hotel rooms, this has got to come out to be a good $10,000.

Yeah we have the ext SLC with the helix at Movieworld. Funny thing is after the first drop the helix is probably the best and smoothest part of the ride :p

I Love Donkeys!

I've been to Gardaland in 2000 and thought the SLC was pretty good then.
The Helix is actually one of the best parts of the ride. And the SLC Blue Tornado ranks as my favorite SLC.

Hi Elissa, Robb and everyone else on the trip. Thanks for the great time at Europa Park! Achim and me really enjoyed it.

It was a great day, we had the hottest and sunniest weather possible and we were lucky the park was so empty. Waiting times were around 10-30 minutes for major attractions.

We only shot a few pics but I'll post them here. We're really curious about the EuroMir footage. While the train was spinning up the hill we were talking and laughing so by the time the action started I had completely forgotten I was sitting in a coaster and thus the first bend really surprised me. My glasses came off and while trying to catch them I landed in Achims lap. I had a complete loss of orientation. I got bruises everywhere and my tummy still hurts from laughing. :laughing:

Reading your TR feels like you'd magically disappear at one park and reappear at another one. Seeing that there's no superfast private helicopter secretly taking you from one park to the other (okay, I never believed that, but still...) made me realise how tough your trip really is, staying in parks all day long, walking, cueing, being thrusted around and then travelling 500km or more in the van to get to the next location. You should get your own TV series, like Michael Palins travel stuff "The Alveys: Around the world in 80 coasters" LOL and Respect!!! and enjoy the rest of the trip.

Elissa is doing it right: When the trip is arduously you gotta get some sleep whenever possible. (pic was shot in the dark)

Beautiful Swiss scenery.

This must be the wettest trip ever done...

Better add a warning on the DVD “You will get wet, but you might get soaked”
