Wow Freefall drop ride without OTSRs. I doubt you'd see that in North America at least with the bigger drop towers.

Is it a really intense ride?
Best: | 1. Medusa (SFDK) | 2. Coaster (Playland) | 3. Behemoth (CW) | 4. Giant Dipper (SCBB) | 5. Titan (SFOT) Worst: | 1. Grizzly (CGA) | 2. Flight Deck (CW) | 3. Corkscrew (Playland) | 4. Dragon Fire (CW) | 5. Rainbow Chaser (Fun Forest)
- Rides don't hurt people, people do. (although some exceptions)

This little park looks beautiful. I love the dirt road. It works well in the Western area.

Damn it! Another German park I need to get to before I die!

I've never seen a "themed" ring of fire before.... Looks like a nice and simple park, but it still has some fun factor in it! =)

Thanks again for all the nice comments so far. Making up captions for the pictures ain't my strongest point.. I mostly try to have the pictures speak for themselves..

For the rest.. there's still something called freedom of speech.. so don't let it stop you..

Anyway....

While planning my trip to Freizeitpark Plohn i noticed another park not too far away (1,5 hour drive). There's a credit there and some sort of new attraction..

I therefore decided to add this park to the day.. before driving back home again (another 5 hours)

I present to you Belantis.

all pictures are in the order they were taken. I'll let you make up your own mind.. only thing i will add before presenting the pictures.. that it was hot (for the time of year) and the sun was getting to me..

yes i made it.. let's walk from the parking lot to the entrance..

It looks like a very nice interesting new park. However, it seems very spread out. Hopefully it does well enough to start to fill in some of those very sparse areas. Great pictures Hanno. If the heat was getting to you, it wasn't noticeable in tha pics.

That park layout/map is the coolest thing I've ever seen. (I'm guessing the lake is man-made...?) Now they just need to figure out how to connect South America and Africa! =)

/Nothing wrong with your captions, Hanno. Some people are just rude.

That park looks nice, and is not covered a lot on TPR. Thanks for the pics.
