Fantastic photos! I think my brain would go into sensory overload if I was to visit Europa Park. That is one absolutely beautiful park.

I also really like the look of Tripsdrill, which also is very photogenic. Karacho looks like one of the better custom Gerstlauer coasters.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Enjoying your TR Neil. We're hoping to get to Europe (and Germany especially), but gotta save those pennies - your TR is definitely helping. :)

Haven't experienced a Gerstlauer dive loop yet but I think it gives some strong airtime during the upward twist, kind of like how RMC put unexpected airtime on the twists.

That's what I assumed. Especially with lapbars (although saw looks like the one that throws you into the twist the fastest)
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.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

About the Tea Cups, the ride is called the Kaffeetassen-Fahrt, or "Coffee Mug Ride".

Can I park my donkey here?

Great TR! thank you so much for sharing. Who makes that family tilt drop tower? It looks cool and is themed wonderfully.

As far as I am aware, the drop tower is by ABC Rides. Looking at their list of installations (http://www.abc-engineering.ch/cms/upload/download/Reference%20list%20abc%20rides%202012.pdf), there are 3 of them in total: BonBon Land, Tripsdrill and Fraispertuis City.

They are fun and worth riding if you get the chance. I've been lucky to ride two of them in the same year!

It is very surprising that more of them were not sold. I very unique and fun ride.
