Thank you, I have been trying to figure who it was for a while now.
Day 5 brought us to Heide Park. After staying the night in the park's very nice Hotel Port Royal we woke in the morning to start off with a half hour ERT on Krake.Krake
I really wasn't expecting much from this because the ride was pretty short in lengh, but it was pretty good. Luckily they finished the theming this year so you now drop into the mouth of the Krake. The airtime hill was also fun, but I grabbed about 5 rides this morning before we moved on to the next ride.Desert Race
Fun little Intamin launched coaster. Got about 5 rides in aswell.
Next we were going to grab the first ride on Colossos but it was being worked on and didn't open until a half hour after the park opened. Limit
Since Colossos was still down everyone headed to the other side of the park to get the SLC out of the way. If you like getting your head banged around this one is for you.Schweizer Bobbahn
Being the this is the only ride not of the Qbots and us being warned that there was thousands of kids pouring through the park's gates everyone decided to get this out of the way. This was my favorite bobsled I have been on, it has a great layout and is alot of fun.
At this point Elissa came back with our Qbots since we had 7 people (four per Qbot) we ended up syncing the bots up through the day and it worked very well. After setting our bots for Grottenblitz we headed that directing but we choose to get the haunt out of the way first since it would later be swarmed with kids.
(Krake Alive) This was the new attraction this year and besides the crappy haunt at Walygator this was the only included with admission on this trip. It was actually very good. Luckily for us while Krake's queue was full while this one was empty (They were right next to each other) so we got right in. Once again we had no idea what the first actor was saying but from what I could tell he has doing some great acting. Next we were sent into a sub preshow before exiting into the endless maze where Kyle got a mouthful from an angry German woman for opening the door too early. From here I won't spoil it but I will just say do not miss it.
After that we started making our way for Grottenblitz when we got abit lost when I look over and see two people down in what I thought was the path we needed but no they were stuck on an island in the middle of Kanalfahrt. After getting the rest of the group over we watched and couldn't stop laughing as they tried to get off. After about 3 boats they finally got off and made it back to the loading platform where they got a good talking to by the ride op. On the way to Grottenblitz when they caught up to us and start to beg us to delete the photos and videos but of course we didn't haha.Grottenblitz
Another powered coaster and after riding the one at Europa this was nothing too great. Indy-Blitz
Just a kiddie coaster.Colossos
(This ended up being my 300th coaster) While walking by we decided to grab a ride. We sat in the back and wow this was a great ride. A little rough in the helix but the airtime on this thing makes up for it.Huss Land
(Aka the giant circle in the back of the park with nothing but Huss flat rides)(Aka Mayan area) we were going to hit a few of the rides in here but some of the rides were pretty busy. We grabbed a ride on Lady Moon
and moved on.Big Loop
This was the last credit we needed and thankfully we had QBots because thanks to the one train op there was a pretty hefty line. We got on in about a 10 minute station wait.Scream
We grabbed lunch than made our way up the hill to get our ride on scream. After a short wait and a chat with a very nice op we got on. Pretty fun gyro drop with a great view of the park and construction site where the second log flume was.
We made our way back to the other side of the park to get some flat rides we missed.Panorama Turm
Hoped on the sky tower to get some good views of the park. Grachtenfahrt
Spinning raft ride. We got ours spinning pretty good.(K)Anal Fahrt
Next up was Anal Fart oh I mean Kanalfahrt... lots of fahrts and unicorns.
Next the rest of the group wanted to do the rapids but me and Chris choose not too so we held the bags... after waiting for a while we get nervous that we were in the wrong place for the exit so we headed to toward the station I make a comment I wonder where they are and all you hear is a very loud "F^@K" from one of the guys haha poor dan got a direct hit by a waterfall.
Next we did Desert Race followed by killing some time at the death slides before our ERT. ERT
So for this ERT we had an hour on Colossos and this was probably the most epic ERT session I have been on. About half way through the session you could see some very dark clouds rolling in. After another 20 minutes it finally hits. At first the ride op shut it down but we all encouraged him to keep sending us. He said "You want to go out in that" "Yes!" "Alright!" This is what started the most insane and wettest ride I have ever been on. Refer to Hanno's photo
After about two more rides (around 12 for the whole session our ERT came to an ended and it was time to retire back to the hotel to dry off and relax before a very good dinner.
Even though it was very wet it was still a great day! Thanks to Robb and Elissa for putting together another great day and for Heide Park for operating everything nonstop (You won't see this at a Cedar Fair or Six Flags park). Next up Schlossbeck.
