The front of the line passes good for all the roller coasters was something special Bruno and the park set up for TPR. However, the park does sell front of the line passes that are good for some of the coasters and several other rides including the dark rides and water rides. I believe they were 10 Euros each and there were 2 different types, family, and adventurer.
Beautiful pictures, Eric! I believe you were able to capture less obstructions than I did, even though we were sitting in the same area of the bus. Good job! Driving through the Swiss Alps was one of the many highlights of this trip.
There be Me-hi-cans in R-Kansas.... who would've thought.
Wow Eric, you really do take some really beautiful pictures! Compared to all of the other Europe trip reports (including mine), you really capture the beauty of the continent and its countries. Also, I'm totally ruining the picture of the fire on Magma! (hahah) That ride was seriously awesome, though! I like this Photo TR so far, so I'm looking forward to more! ^_^
Everyone has aphotographic memory. Some just don't have film.
^ & ^^ Thanks Alfredo and Davon! You guys are too kind.
Davon - lol- You didn't ruin the Magma fire photo, actually it looks like your chin is going to catch on fire! And I loved your Europe trip report - keep up the good work!
Alfredo - I'm loving your Europe trip report on Facebook! You got some great pictures of the Alps too. I took agazillion photos of the Alps, out of about 100 photos, the 20 I posted of the Alps in this thread are the only ones that kind of came out ok!
too bad it wasn't as awesome as we had hoped it would be. But at least 3D glasses were involved!
I know I am late on posting this, but we got screwed on our ride! Like straight up! I can't believe we waited all that time for a 1 minute spectacula of failure. Gah, I'm still not over the disappointment. As always, great pictures and I look forward to the next update!
^Thanks Jordan! You are so right. I still don't know what happened in that Terminator thing. It was so weird! It was such an epic fail, so much possibility. I'm not sure what was more disturbing - the shortness of the "show/experience" or at least in our group's pre-show room a dozen school kids started to laugh uncontrollably during the part where the earth gets nuked!
Once arriving in Germany, we stayed at a fantastic resort for 2 nights, the Hotel Colosseo at the Europa Park Resort. It was funny now that I think about it, we left Italy, arrived in Germany and now was staying at a Italian themed hotel! But what a gorgeous hotel to stay at! Every inch of this hotel was gorgeous. Along with Europa Park, this was probably my favorite stop on our tour. This photo update is just for the amazing hotel, next update will include lots of photos from Europa Park. Stay tuned!
New country credit, Germany!

I loved this hotel!

Beautiful flowers lined many areas of the hotel.

The hotel's main pool was located at the base of the backside of the Colosseum.

The main outside pool had a river that connected into the inside pool/spa area.

The main restaurant was elegant featuring dozens of lit candles decorating the dinning rooms.
Our group enjoyed a delicious meal.
As did Derek, Amy and Joey.
As the sun set, the hotel really came to life.

With my awesome roommate and new friend, Fran. Elissa thanks again for pairing us up, I thought we were a great match!
The girls enjoying the evening.
The Colosseum was gorgeous at night!

After awhile we then moved to the lounge for a few drinks.
Hotel Colosseo was fantastic, a top notch resort! Next up: agazillion photos from our 1 & 1/2 days at my favorite park of the trip, Europa Park. Stay tuned!
As I look through everyone's pictures I remember how much fun we had on this trip. I would do the entire trip again in a heartbeat. Hotel Colosseo is one of the nicest hotels I have ever seen, even if no AC! I loved our time there.
