Great pictures! Also love the ride selection, specially the Inversion and Huss Take Off. And this fair has even more bumper cars the Vienna Prater... ;)

Do you have more information about the last coaster with the electric spiral lift? Looks familiar even if it could be a knock-off, at least the cars look new...

Finally last night we went on the Mystery Hotel

My thoughts... it was terribly awful!! First of all, as expected, the 3D projection didn't have any relation with the "story" of the ride.... it was a standard egypcian mystery 3D animation film!!! Featuring some water sprays inside the elevator, and also some seat vibes.... then, the elevator goes up, and in each floor there are some "paintings" on the wall.... several of them were of the actual Tower of Terror from Florida!! The drop was so fake.... it was not dropping "by gravity", it was a hydraulic platform that drops fast but no airtime at all.

Well... one more experience in our bag!

Yes! The layout was the same!! The classics never die!

This year there was no V coaster and other rides. Also several rides were relocated.

I'd like to buy a vowel!

I saw that. I was just curious about it in general. You mentioned it was infamous, haha. Any history on it?

Awesome contrast between nature and pieces of engineering. It looks like a forest on acid trip ! The proximity to the trees must give a crazy feeling of speed on the booster ! I had missed this thread last year but I'm glad you revived it. Fantastic pictures

Imagine you're riding it and suddenly a heavy wind picks up.... ;)

Wow, what a cool setting for a fair with such a great variety of thrill rides! I went to Spain this summer and went to Girona for a day and walked by this park late in the day without knowing it hosts this great fair this time of the year. We didn't explore this park as we wanted to grab something quick to eat (we got Doner Kabap to go and ate it on the train) and make our train back into Barcelona. We did spend the day walking around the historic and river parts Girona and really liked it - Girona definitely is a "culture" place.

Now.... I propose you a game.... I'm not trying to be offensive but everytime I go to any fair in the world, I'm shocked by this unhappy workers... their faces don't give any sense of fun.... if it was for them, people would be in their houses instead of going to the fair!!!! but now it's your turn to choose which one is more unhappy!!! I will reveal which ride was operating the winner!
