yeah, when I rode tarantula last year I was impressed. Tornado was sadly down when I went though. It's a fun little park and you get a great view at the top of their skyscreamer of madrid.

If the donkey is rockin, don't come knockin!

Nice pictures, one day I'll have to go to Parque de Atracciones as I've been to Madrid a couple of times but never wet there.

We are also supposed to be quite religious here (in fact, together with Spain, the most religious in Europe, I think) and yet pretty much everything is open normally, just like any other Sunday. So I guess in Spain it's similar.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

I love donkeys more than me.

As they have it still on their website I hope it is only a temporary outage. But only a second priority coaster for my visit. Looking like a nice park - and having a TopSpin and Frisbee side by side will keep my occupied some time... :lmao:

How was the program of the TopSpin?

when I was there the frisbee was closed.... I'm starting to wonder if this park has some serious reliability issues!

I rather enjoyed the mine train though, had quite a fun layout. To add to the flat ride collection there's also a HUSS condor which I hadnt seen outside of RCT3 until then and a disk'o.

Great TR! How is Tren De La Mina? Can't find a lot of reviews about that on line. Is it better than Pegasus at Europa Park?
