Great job Hanno - Hopefully, this is the last new park you visit for a while. I'm getting tired updating the Park Index with new parks and rides. ;)

Great update Hanno that park looks really nice. Is the pyramid water ride anything more than just a drop or is there more to it?

What a cool looking park! Reminds me of a Legoland without the Legos. And very family friendly. Thanks for the great shots.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^^^ Larry, you're welcome... i guess Drievliet is still in the planning.. i have some more pictures from Plopsaland and Thorpe Park (still coming) and then it's Scandi trip time..

so you should be able to get a break ;-)

^^Speeddaemon128, i'm pretty sure the ride has more things inside.. but i did not feel like risking my camera('s) for this ride to check it out.. so i'm not 100% sure..

for the rest.. thanks for the nice comments. It's always nice to hear that people appreciate the effort...
I'm dutch.. not much i can do about that

Yes, this park does look very spread out.... Segways in a theme park is just really unusual, even for theme parks in America, where they're popular! :lolr:

The credit look interesting, I can't really tell what type of coaster it is, really. :?r

2 + 2 = donkey!

^ its a Gerstlauer Bobsled Coaster, the same type of coaster like "Gsengte Sau" in Tripsdrill or "Die heiße Fahrt!" in the "Wild- & Freizeitpark Klotten". Nice little Mouse Style coaster with really good airtime hills and helixes, especially the one in Klotten. For onride video scroll down in this post. On http://www.gerstlauer-rides.de/Produkte/PB1_BobsC.html you`ll find a list all coaster of this type.

I just saw on a video that there is an small darkride for the water ride and an elevator which lifts the boat to the drop, but i don`t know whats in the entrance of the pyramid because the waterride has a seperate station.

Here is an OnrideVideo from the Ride but you see nearly nothing in the drakride part, but you here voices of a person which talks about that he will be the biggest adventure guy of all times and a curse of the mummy of course:


and one mixed On- and Offride Video were you see better how the elevator works:


And for te coaster guys a onride of the "Drachenritt"-Coaster:

Oh my dear...this park looks soooo absolutely beautiful. It`s one of those reviews, that makes this "I`ll have to go there very soon..." feeling.
Thanks a lot !

This ride is amazing! I went to Thorpe Park on 7th May. I managed to get on Saw 5 times which was class as there were hardly any queues. The ride is smoothe and does not slow down. The dark part of this ride caught me out as I was not expecting what was in there! Its worth a ride.
