I was a bit hesitant to tell you and all my UK trip buddies how much I loved Europa since I was afraid I would overhype the park. I am glad that everyone that I know seems to have loved it as much as I loved it in 08!
Our next day Robb & Elissa, arranged for our group to visit The Wurzburg Fair in a small German town. The main perk was that we had ERT (extra ride time) on Olympia Looping. Olympia Looping is one of the largest traveling coasters to ever travel in the fair circuit. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever ride this coaster, so it was a great surprise to have this added to our tour! After ERT, we enjoyed a couple of hours in the festhaus-beer tent. Lots of yummy German food and entertainment. This was opening day of the fair so the town's mayor was on hand to kick off the opening ceremonies. It was a lot of fun and it was nice experiencing a true German activity. Onto the photos!

After ERT on Olympia Looping it was time to spend a few hours in the festhaus beer tent for some festivities.

These were giant pretzels!
There was so much food!
This was for 2 people!
Part of the kick-off tradition was to give away free beer from a keg. There were lots of TPR takers!

That reminds me of the time when we were going into Universal right after each other and the Universal team member did a double take after reading our annual passes. She gave us a look like are we trying scam her!
