A friend and I just finished a mini Europe trip. On this trip we visited some parks in Germany and France. We went to some parks that were absolutely new to me and of course the unavoidable Europapark!
Saturday april 10 - Skylinepark Sunday april 11 - Legoland Deutschland Monday april 13 - Tripsdrill Tuesday april 13 - Europapark Wednesday april 14 - Europapark Thursday april 15 - Walygator Friday april 16 - Parc Asterix
It was our plan to hit Connyland on april 13 but their new coaster wasn't open yet so I replaced that day for Tripsdrill.
For our first two nights we stayed in a nice German Gaststatte in Krumbach. This town is right in the middle of Skylinepark and Legoland Deutschland.
First park: Skylinepark Part 1.
I was really looking forward to the Skywheel which is a Maurer Sohne X car type rollercoaster. Cool concept and a crazy drop/twist section. Overall the park is nice with friendly staff.
This was our Gaststatte for the first two nights.
Typical German village.
We even got our own bike.
There goes the capacity of their Schwarzkopf coaster.
Even grandma made it to the parkinglot.
First credit of the trip.
Its a Schwarzkopf coaster.
It's a decent size coaster with a fun first drop.
And very smooth too just because it's a Schwarzkopf.
They run the coaster with three cars. A Volkswagen.
and a West Mclaren F1.
This is probably the most noisy coaster in the world.
First drop fun.
The park is diveded in two parts by this lawn.
Some cool bumperboats.
Waiting in line for...
This one is so much longer than in Toverland.
and you can bring your dog here.
Mess of track but hey whet do I see over there?
Was it worth the wait?
Over to the Skywheel.
Overview of the coaster.
Coming through the twisty part. You get some excellent hangtime over here.
After the twisty part it's already over.
But the operator let it go around for two or three times.
The lion is the parks mascot.
Germany is one of those cool places where you can buy cigarettes on a public picnic area.
New ride. Park index love.
It's an well common Condor ride.
Nicely themed restaurant.
Sky circle. Booster type of ride and no UPCHARGE.
Original fair model.
I also got my first Butterfly credit.
and the good part is. There are two of them.
Proof that I'm a whore.
And yes I rode both and yes I also count both.
Now presenting: Crap the ride.
At first it looks like crap but then you realise hey it's theming.
Little kids ride.
Of course we rode the chairswing.
There are also some really cool small self operated rides.
Like this one.
Not for fat American a$$es! ;)
and a giant snake where you can dump your kids.
Swinging ship Alte Liebe.
Time for some refreshments.
Cool beer place.
Some random toilet/bathtub theming.
This is the place where one day skyrafting will be. It's scheduled to be open in 2010.
I can say only one thing about this ride..... OUCH!!!
I wondered how this truck landed here.
There was also a cart track.
Electric powered. So if you put your ear to the screen you can hear what they sounded like.
Ferris wheel under construction. It was open to the public though.
Krinoline AKA bench the ride.
For the first time in my life I rode a Skyshot.
Skyderman was watching closely.
Simple concept - big ball - high up into the sky.
And again there was no upcharge.
The cool thing about this caroussel was that the vehicles were actually riding.
And there's no european park without the jump boat.
This is the way old German dudes ride it.
Too bad the big swings were out of business.
Train ride through the park.
The cool girls but hey I think she is smelling something.
We had to check it out. First we took the tunnel.
We checked the backpart of the ride.
