So after spending a couple of days at Europapark it was time for the (long) drive home. Plopsa Coo was one of the parks along the possible routes and since i had not been there yet i decided to take this one hour detour to go for a visit.
Plopsa Coo is an interesting place to check out. Not for coaster enthusiast but more for families with small children. Besides that the location of this park is pretty cool. Getting there is an interesting drive through the hills in the area. Almost felt like doing a rally through the hills. Francorchamps (the F1 circuit) is within 10 miles of the park.. so that could be an interesting stop as well.
Anyway, i did a quick visit and then went on with the drive home...
Enjoy the pictures and feel free to comment.
it was not that busy when i parked my car
first stop at the park
Vicky, the spinning coaster
next stop was coaster
which has some interaction with the flume
and the flume was a hit with the kids
entrance to coaster
but wait.. there's more to this park
should be clear on what's in that corner
trying to capture coaster
which actually was a nice surprise
here's the parks maze
which is called labyrint
looking back towards the front of the park
i wanted to get some more pictures and a ride on coaster.. but it broke down (or at least it looked that way). Time to move on
hmm, those are big.. can i take them home??
Balls.. (not the chocolate salty kind)
climbing structure for the kids
park map, as you can see the place is not that big
it should go up and then round an round and round and...
at least they have coca cola ;)
hmm, this should make some folks happy
every plopsa park (i've been to) has one of these
water play area
they also had a kart track
it ain't tiny at all
and these machines went pretty fast
time for some more vicky pictures
lovely station building
accross from vicky
and yes.. you could walk underneath the ride.. not netting at all
there was also a bobslee
more vicky track
a lovely waterval right next to the park
and yes.. the park is right next to the water and that bridge
one more look at vicky
the big restaurant (i think)
the end of the ride of the bobslee
and yes.. going up was in reverse..

Lovely little park. I visited this before it was a Plopsa park. I was quit a bit younger back than, but I was farley impressed with the "Coaster". It's a impressive kiddy/family coaster with single person cars. Smooth suprising and lovely use of terrain.
This looks like a beautiful park! It appears they take care really good care of it.
I may not know everything about coasters... what I do know is they are my life... Home park: Six Flags America Favorite park overall: All Walt Disney World Parks Favorite Steels: Maverick, Millennium Force, Sky Rush, Talon, Poltergeist, I-305 Favorite Woodies: Iron Rattler, Phoenix, Roar, El Toro, Jack Rabbit, Thunderbolt, The Raven, The Legend TPR Trips: Northeast 2011, LeviaTHON 2012
^they do... now ! Before the Plopsa era though, everything was nearly falling to pieces with un painted rides and water that smelt like gutters... But this place started as a family day out destination and slowly turned into a park later. The big draw was the waterfall 'cascade de Coo" and kayak / canoeing in the river Ambleve. I have always wanted to try the bobsled ride but was unfortunate as they didn't seem to operate it in rainy weather. I have the "Coaster" credit though...
Top woodies: 1: Outlaw Run / 2: BoulderDash / 3: El Toro / 4: Phoenix / 5: Tonnerre de Zeus Top Steelies: 1: DRAGON KHAN / 2: Expedition Geforce / 3: Top Thrill Dragster/ 4: Goliath (Holland) / 5: Superman (Madrid)

It's a bit unfair - to other parks - to classify this one as "small" though.
While it really is small, literally, it's not small financially and creatively. Its parent company is an incredibly successful media company, making movies, music, tv shows and theater productions.
Look at some "nicely themed stations" at their flagship park Plopsaland:
Yes, even the last one is a station building. Built from scratch only a few years ago. Fun fact: not a single brick was used, it's nothing but concrete, sculpted and painted to look like weathered brick.
