Germany 2014 Photo TR

Postby rctneil » Fri Sep 26, 2014 9:34 am

Hey all!

Myself and mousch (Jason) decided to visit 3 german parks during a mid September weekend:- Holiday Park, Europa Park and Tripsdrill.

After an extremely early start but a nice short flight to Frankfurt we made our way to Holiday Park in Hassloch, (mainly to give the highly praised Expedition GeForce a ride).

We hired a car and headed off to Holiday Park.

Holiday Park is quite a small park but contains two rather large rides: Expedition GeForce and the brand new for 2014 Sky Scream.

YAY, we made it to our first destination: Holiday Park!

Intamin drop tower (we'll be back later to ride this)

I see you GeForce

AIRTIME!

I guess this is where the Expedition begins?

How on earth does a small park like this install something as awesome as that? Seriously, this ride really deserves the praise I have heard about it. It delivers airtime in bucketloads and is a decent length and very awesome ride.

After a few rides on GeForce we head off to look around the rest of the park. They have a really nicely themed Log Flume

A relic from the parks past ride to fill the space: Super Wirbel.

Yay, New Hotness: Sky Scream

Nice new Premier trains to try out. The ride was really enjoyable apart from the extremely sudden transition at the top after the main launch but I did enjoy riding it.

Off to ride the parks last coaster: Hollys Wilde AutoFahrt. A standard wild mouse but this one had extremely painful mid course brakes!

Is this officially Cars licensed?

as promised, back to the drop tower.

It was only running one side as the park was so quiet

Lovely roof over the parks main street at the entrance

Looks strangely familiar to another Corkscrew that disappeared in 2008

The whole park was beautifully themed and didn't look run down anywhere. This is the parks giftshop

The new kids area was really nice with giant flowers and insects.

Another couple of rides on Sky Scream, back to GeForce and then it's time to head off for our drive to Rust!

If you visit and the only ride you get to ride is GeForce then it was worth the visit. Go for it!

Nice pictures! That guy with the Guinness records looks familiar. Is he the one who also rode Cyclone (Coney island) a lot?
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.

^ Richard Rodriguez?

I believe that was/is his name. If it is, he's the one
who also marathoned our Coaster in it's 40th birthday year (1998).

EDIT to add: Just checked. Yep, that's him.

^Yes.... Richard sounds right. When I was a kid and only my granddad had a PC my parents recorded a TV program called "Top Ten Ultimate Thrill Rides" which I watched over and over again and when Cyclone came (no 3) he was introduced.
It was funny riding Millennium Force last year as it was the no 1 coaster on that episode and I had been looking forward to trying it since then.

Thanks for the TR! Holiday Park looks like a very good park for its size.

Do you think it deserves the spot?
