Yesterday, Plopsaland De Panne was in fact closed, but not really. The park was rented by Telenet, from which I managed to get a hold of 4 tickets. The park was going to be packed because Telenet handed out some 13000 tickets, so we arrived well before opening time to at least do some rides without waiting too long.
Here we are :-)
The weather was great, but a bit too cold to see the kids playing here during the day
I hadn't been to Plopsaland since Mayaland opened, so I was anxious to discover this new area. Also note the sky and clouds and sky in this pictures. That's the hall in which Mayaland is. On days like yesterday, you hardly notice this.
It's like a mini Plopsaindoor with about 10 rides inside
I can imagine that when it's raining outside, Mayaland must be crazy crowded
I thought the background of this ride looked really nice.
My daughter's friend
There are some balls
But the sun was shining, so we were outside soon again to ride this.
My daughter is no daredevil, so she didn't ride, but it's also great to watch the boats going down in the water
Not too many people yet. This would change later on the day.
The landscaping in the park is stunning
House Annubis was a kids tv serie of some years ago.
I never watched it but I know it delivered the best rollercoaster in belgium
It's a real good smooth ride.
On to Wickieland, another undiscovered area for me.
and behind the rocks
What a nice theming
The whole area is nicely themed
Even the restrooms
There's also a Viking splash battle
Bos van Plop boatride. In the meantime it was afternoon and we waited 1 hour to ride it
It's a great darkride. I love how they transformed the old bee ride when the park was still called Meli, into the Plop ride.
The Plopsa starflyer, now named after Rox, a tv serie on tv the last few years
Some more random pics of the park. Here you can see how they hid the Mayaland hall
We had a great day, but left at 3 pm because the park was too packed. Thanks for reading
Scandinavia has always been on my to do list so I decided to join the TPR Scandinavia trip last June. It promised to be an amazing trip but it exceeded all my expectations by far. From the first to the last day, everything, every smallest detail was so well organized by our amazing tour guides. The parks were all really good and welcomed us like VIPs. There were tons of ERT at every park. I met a lot of old friends from previous trips and made a lot of new ones. It's really awesome to have friends all over the world because of TPR. The weather, I still can't believe how perfect the weather during the whole trip was. And I'm still sure this was because R&E packed 2 poncho's for every participant. I loved all the bonus parks. How awesome can it get when during a long drive, the lunchstop is at a bonuspark ? And all the food that was included !!! I was warned that Scandinavia is expensive. I budgeted quite some money for lunches and drinks but ended up not even spending half of my budget because most of the days breakfast, lunch AND dinner was included. Everything on this trip was amazing. I'm really glad I was able to explore Scandinavia with TPR. On to the pics
As from the first picture, I realize my memory is not as good as Thad's memory (if you haven't read his TR, just go and read it). I don't remember why I booked my flight arriving at noon and missing out on the bonuspark. So in stead of being at the bonuspark, Ken and me used the spare time we had in the afternoon to explore Copenhagen by bike. I'm really glad we did. I was nice to bike around the city and visit some of the landmarks in the city. Oh yeah, I also got 'robbed'. When I left my bike unattended for a few minutes, my bottles of water (1 full, 1 half empty) got stolen. Oh well, I'm glad I helped out a thirsty Danish person.
I was standing in the direction they were going, so I moved out of their way after taking this picture. I still wonder what would have happened if I hadn't moved.
I had seen pictures of this street before but didn't realize it was in Copenhagen so it was a nice surprise.
First official day : Bakken. I didn't really know much about the parks we were going to visit, let alone about the coasters in the parks. It was fun to be surprised day after day by the parks and hear all the info about the parks and coasters from Robb on the busride to the park.
Bakken welcome was awesome. The rideops gave us a lot of interesting info and facts about their wooden coaster.
Not being prepared at all, the Tornado lifthill gave me one of the biggest WTF moments of my life
Bakken is located in a park. It was great to see the locals coming to the park with their families to relax and enjoy the sun and the park.
And of course every coaster is a credit
Ross would look good with a mustache
More park time
I enjoyed just watching them dancing in the park
Such a great vibe
In the evening we spent a great evening at the extreme rope course hall. Since a have a weak back, I joined as a spectator only. I was a great evening though seeing the group on the ropes. In the same hall, the Eurovison contest took place a few weeks earlier. To be honest, I didn't even know it was held in Copenhagen but it was a nice detail being at the place it was held. It was too dark inside so I don't have any pictures of the course itself.
Oh yeah, it was also the spot where the metal fest Copenhell took place a few days before we were there
Tivoli Gardens. Again a hartly welcome by the parkmanagement
This was one of the coaster I knew we were going to ride. I knew it was a short ride, and it was short. I heard the lady who welcomed us saying that we didn't want to ride Daemonen for a long time and that we would quickly move to their better coaster. Being a B&M fan, it was weird to hear her say that, but she was right. Not that Daemonen is a bad ride, not at all but ....
this coaster was so much better.
We got a backstage tour through the complete structure and ended up at the roof.
This rideop was so great. The info he gave us was very interesting and entertaining
The moment he told us that we would go down from the roof by coaster train, I had goosebumps everywhere.
Here the first group going down
You can tell everybody was super excited
I believe this was my first ever brakeman coaster
As said, every coaster is a credit
The park holds a lot of attractions including a enjoyable dark ride
I loved this alley
In the evening we had a group dinner at the nearby Hard Rock Cafe. Included of course
The park is absolutely stunning
Bon Bon Land. ERT for 2 hours or something on all 4 coasters
Probably the longest wacky worm I've ever been on
empty park during ERT
it's a beautiful park
While I get noxious in most flat rides, I have no problem on this type of ride. So I rode it several times in a row
