Photo TR: Hanno goes Scandi for a bit

Postby Hhappy » Fri Jul 04, 2014 12:45 pm

Long story short.. things happened which made it not possible for me (at that time) to do the entire Scandi 2014 trip.
But in the end I was able to visit for a few days.
As usual everything was organized to perfection this tour and needless to say I had a blast.

It also reminded me I should do more of these trips (opposed to what I had been doing most of the year)
Being outside and in a foreign country (far away from home) with good company is such an awesome way to relax, un-stress and energize for the rest of the year...

Had a blast.

Anyway, picture time..

I usually take tons of pictures at parks, mostly with people having a great time on coasters in mind.

Here's a couple of pictures from my Scandi visit.

First up:
Tusenfryd (see below)
Day 2: Liseberg
Day 3: Skara Sommarland

Great Photos Hanno. Love all the expressions on Speed Monster as well as all the memories that are flooding back from that awesome trip. Keep up the good work.

Watching everyone over shoot the station on the Vekoma was really funny! So many looks of "Oh crap do I really have to go again!"

MUST BUY RMC MERCHANDISE!!!!

Great photos! Was it cold that day? Looks even lower than 65 degrees from the reactions.

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Thinking the same thing. SuperSplash is not that wet - honestly it is quite hard to get a decent amount of wetness riding this watercoaster. Likely designed that way due to the Norwegian weather.

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

We were not happy campers at that moment, nor, I imagine, were the people in line whose already ridiculously long wait time was being extended.

Good park but worst operations of the tour.

Your photos are fantastic!

Great photos, Hanno. While operations at Tusenfryd aren't very good, I do like Speed Monster and Thunder Coaster quite a bit.

I feel like people were a little unfair to Tusenfryd. The problem was the company the park was in. Every other park on the tour was one of the 'OMG BEST PARKS EVAR' so by process of elimination there had to be a 'worst' park. To clump it with Six Flags though!?!? I don't think that's totally fair. The park was clean, nice, decent rides, most ops were friendly, food was fresh, etc.

We were just spoiled by the other parks!
