Hey there Peis,

The Toverland link was wrong, here's the correct one:


Those pics were awesome! I love this pics of Elissa on the Obstacle Course!

Thanks for posting those and I hope we can meet up at a park again sometime soon.

out of:

1. Tivoli
2. Heide Park (Colossos)
3. Holiday Park (Expedition GeForce)
4. Europa Park (Silver Star)
5. Movie Studios Park (Canevaworld Italy)

I'd rank them:

1. Europa
2. Holiday
3. Heide
4. Tivoli
5. Movie Studios Park

Keep in mind that all 5 of these parks though are in my "upper tier" of awesomeness! Also if you're going to be in Garda you might as well go to Gardaland since it is RIGHT THERE! :D

Elissa "I'd imagine Robb's rankings are pretty similar!" Alvey

Thanks Elissa!

This question was of course meant for for the two of you, my mistake :oops:

Tomorrow i will show this to my girlfriend so we can finish our trip planning. We will try to visit 3 or 4 parks of your ranking list. I noticed that you put europe on the top of the list. This place must be pretty good. We usually live at Etap or Ibis but i could not find any Etap hotels in italy. I read that you lived at Etap. Elissa how would you compare Tonnere de zeus to Colossos?

Looks like your favorite coster is Expedition geforce now Elissa, i can't wait riding it.

Thanks again for your help!

Colossos and Zeus are two very different rides. Colossos is all about the long floater airtime and is glass smooth. Zeus is much more about out of control laterals and airtime, but do not expect 'smooth' by any means. The way they both ran on our trip I might even put Zeus ahead of Colossos on my list! They are both top caliber rides!

As far as Etap's and Ibis', there are some Accor hotels in Italy, but they seem to be more expensive. Check it out at www.accorhotels.com and search Italy.

Yeah, I'm surprised you guys haven't been to Spain yet on your treks. Is there any particular reason for that? I mean you went to a Spanish theme park in Japan but not in Spain lol. :lol:

I don't know why we haven't gone yet. It is in our plans though. We will probably do a Mediterranean Cruise out of Barcelona and do the Spain parks either before or after.

Eh, I'm bit late here but I have to say: You managed to go walking on MCBR:s in Europa but nobody even talked to US. We even wear our cool Nojespark.net-t-shirts for that fun :(.

Ride OP's suck :(:)

Yeah thats crazy that you can stand out on the MCBR's and lifts while the rides were running. I'd be scared to be hit by the train or fall off. I guess they don't care that some one is standing there either on the train.

Actually, I was shaking from the Falken and Silver Star walk ups they were really scary. Almost nothing to hold on to, and in some cases just a single 2 x 4 to walk on! Believe it or not I was calm and collected for my beloved Expedition Ge Force walk up!

Elissa "Mmmm, that Ge Force walk up made me hot!!" Alvey

^^That sends chills up my back! I could be 1,000 feet up and not care as long as I'm strapped in!
