Photo TR: Hanno visits Schwaben Park

Postby Hhappy » Mon Apr 15, 2013 2:14 pm

It has been an interesting weekend.
After visiting two smaller parks in Holland it was time to make the drive to a park in Germany.

I decided to visit Schwaben Park. It was one of those parks (for me) that I still wanted to visit.

Had a fun time at the park which is about an hour from Tripsdrill.

Just a few highlights:
Force One has a fitting name as it keeps up speed pretty good till the end. The park also has a kiddie and a fun Schwarzkopf wildcat called Himalayabahn.

Who knows.. maybe one day i'll be back for another visit.

Picture time ;)

Hanno - thanks for a new park to add to the Park Index. I attempted to include Schwaben in my 2010 plans when they opened Force One, but it wasn't possible with my tight time constraints.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

Glad to see Force One is doing well for this park!
