Aww, bless you Hanno and thanks for the Fjord Rafting pics. Great to see those as well as the other pics of this terrific park!

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

^heh...yes. that is pretty funny. i looked at the pic. i looked like that once on an on-ride photo of Ghost Rider before they put on-ride videos on it.
i like the videos better though. sorry, im not sure this is the right place to post this. :?r

Hhappy wrote:Regarding the theming.. i've only found a dutch explanation but the rough translation would be:
The house is from 1900 and is a boarding school. (hope I translated it correctly. (internet in dutch))
The school master tells the 9 children that are prhibited from entering the attic. One day one of the new kids is locked there and discovers a diary.. in which it is told that there are jewels and diamonds buried somewhere around the building. Those jewels and diamonds belonged to on old egyptian pharoah and were stolen from his grave..


Okay, cool. I guess that's kind of what I was thinking it might be. Thanks so much!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Some of those photos are amazing! I'm loving the close-ups.
Nice look inside the station at the theming, too. The wheelchair entrance made me laugh.

Great photos! Anubis certainly looks like an interesting (in a very good way) coaster...

Does it hold a spot near the top of your list?
