Great update.

Crowds were indeed a little bit different to when we visited last year. So obviously there were no school holidays going on ?

No school holidays indeed. At least not in Germany but in Parc Asterix it was a bit more crowdy.

Very nice trip report on both locations. I especially like the level of detail that legoland places in their aquariums. The colors, the realism, the lego man nipples. :wtf:

Cool TR and now I've learned that the thing I must do at this park is no longer that sweet looking Bobsled coaster, but the "fun,bizarre datinghouse walkthrough." Must. Do.

Nice TR! I really enjoyed this place and it's become one of my all-time favorite parks! It's got a lot of "old time charm" to the level that Knott's used to have years ago which is something that always appeals to me in theme parks.

Great report so far, I'm really looking forward to the other updates! And thanks to this report my brain keeps telling me: "Do the same! Go on a trip in Germany!! So many credits you still don't have..." ;)

Tripsdrill looks just plain creepy in your pics... But then again: no crowds > too much crowds!

See you soon on our next park visit together!

Tuesday april 13/Wednesday april 14 - Europapark

We stayed for two days at Europapark with one night on Resort. We booked Hotel Castillo Alcazar and we got a room with parkview. :wtf:

Europapark is simply amazing everything is just awesome, the rides, the theming. In my opinion it's even a better resort than Disney - Paris and California.

We didn't had too much love from the sun these two days but it was dry and more important not too busy.

Warning there will be some evil creatures in this update!!!


Pictures.... (part 1)
