Nice memories in your report, Jake. This was the first and only Legoland I've ever visited, so I really enjoyed it!

I have to add that it's also the only park on the trip where I actually ran out of time without seeing everything by the time we left. And that wasn't due to queues - we had our passes to solve that - it just had so much cool stuff to see and do! =)

Update time! Djurs Sommerland was next and highly anticipated for all trip participants because of the Intamin MegaLite, Piraten. It was a first for most of us, and did not disappoint! On to the photos...
01.JPG
When you see an Intamin ride behind the trees...it's time to get excited!
02.JPG
The park staff was eager to meet us and super friendly!
03.JPG
Always a nice touch to get something like this for our visit :)
04.JPG
Here we go!!!
05.JPG
Just kidding! We started our day with the brand new Juvelen!
06.JPG
You can't see any of the ride from the station, keeping most of it a surprise.
07.JPG
Here we go! Nice gentle launch for the family
08.JPG
The first half of the ride is a nice coast through the "jungle"
09.JPG
The second launch is where the ride really picks up speed and a nice kick!
10.JPG
Love flying through all of the theming!
11.JPG
The ride is twisty!
12.JPG
How about a back seat ride?
13.JPG
Duck!
14.JPG
Everyone loved Juvelen!
15.JPG
Another train of happy riders goes by! Thanks to Djurs for the super long ERT (we started at 7:30 am???)
16.JPG
And now it was finally time for 90 minutes of Piraten ERT!
17.JPG
THAD AND STEVE ANNOUNCE ALL THE FATTIES CAN RIDE!!!
18.JPG
Have fun Soupy!!!
19.JPG
How about a front seat ride to start?
20.JPG
Here we go!!!
21.JPG
I love s-hills and Piraten is PACKED with them!
22.JPG
Take the tunnel!
23.JPG
These hills were insane!
24.JPG
Twist and eject!
25.JPG
Looks like airtime to me!
26.JPG
How good was 90 minutes on Piraten?!?! I think I got over 10 rides.
27.JPG
The park did eventually open, and there were more coasters to ride!
28.JPG
We survived the new water coaster in the 50 degree temps!
29.JPG
The wacky worm here was a little special...
30.JPG
It was my 600th!
31.JPG
These guys also needed the credit :)
32.JPG
The locals show how to use the "barrel of death"
33.JPG
Next up, we got hammered by Thor
34.JPG
Don't look up!
35.JPG
This was my first bobsled coaster!
36.JPG
The ride starts with a bunch of quick turns...
37.JPG
...followed by a series of airtime hills...
38.JPG
..with another twisty finale!
39.JPG
The video crew dropping in
40.JPG
Credits done, it was time to explore the park. Do you think I can make it up?
41.JPG
Doing pretty well!
42.JPG
Alright! Made it up my first try! Not too bad for a fatty.
43.JPG
Classic.
44.JPG
We also got toppled. Is this the only one running???
45.JPG
Craig ate pizza.
46.JPG
Banana boat?
47.JPG
Only a slightly racist boat ride...
48.JPG
Malaysian?
49.JPG
Something funny happened
50.JPG
Just gorillas skiing from gators!
51.JPG
The park has a pretty large ropes course. I love Europe.
52.JPG
We tried hard not to kill ourselves!
53.JPG
Even the simplest of obstacles will catch you off guard!
54.JPG
These guys tried to take it easy, but that didn't last long :)
55.JPG
Never in America...being handed raw dough.
56.JPG
I attempted to bake it, and failed pretty hard.
57.JPG
How about some final rides on Piraten?
58.JPG
The temps picked up all day and so did the ride!
59.JPG
Such a little ride kicks so much A$$.
60.JPG
Flying around another s-curve.
61.JPG
Intamin porn...
62.JPG
Thad in the front row totally ruins it
63.JPG
Pretty!
64.JPG
Seriously, so much airtime on every element on this ride.
65.JPG
It turned out to be a beautiful day!
66.JPG
And one last shot for ya.
67.JPG
I loved the ride almost as much as Soupy loves me!
68.JPG
How else could we end the day other than a huge ice cream cone? I ate EVERY LITTLE BITE. Anyways, next up is a stop at Tivoli Frieheden!

BAYSIDE STATION!!!

Great coverage of the park, and all the coasters, Jake
Can't wait to read what you think of Friheden...and The Tower.

Nice pictures! I'm yet to try a megalite. I really have to get my hands on one of those quickly!
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?

Great photos. Cool to see the "bake your own bread" attraction still there. If some US park attempted to do this, lawyers would drop from the sky to shut it down.

I love how you got that shot of Juvelen with both our bus drivers joining in and getting their ride on it, and having just as much fun as the rest of us!

Really nice photos again.

Jealousy is a stinky cologne, Jake.

Also, I didn't have any trouble with the Piraten restraints!

You missed out on having Elissa, then Robb jump on your lap bar to make it lock. That's the kind of extra service that made this trip awesome!

Great pics, Jake. Djurs Sommerland was a fantastic park!
