It looks like you had a great time on the Little Mermaid ride! ;) There are few places more exhausting than WDW. Seems like you had a good time, though.

Photo TR : Plopasaland - opening day 2014

Postby Groteslurf » Sun Apr 06, 2014 4:11 am

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
P1120435.JPG
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 is no daredevil, so she didn't ride, but it's also great to watch the boats going down in the water

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.

That's a nice looking park! Hopefully, someday I'll be able to visit it. Nice update.

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
IMG_9265.JPG
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.
IMG_9266.JPG
Borgen stuff
IMG_9267.JPG
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.
IMG_9268.JPG
I had seen pictures of this street before but didn't realize it was in Copenhagen so it was a nice surprise.
IMG_9269.JPG
IMG_9271.JPG
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.
IMG_9272.JPG
Bakken welcome was awesome. The rideops gave us a lot of interesting info and facts about their wooden coaster.
IMG_9273.JPG
Not being prepared at all, the Tornado lifthill gave me one of the biggest WTF moments of my life
IMG_9274.JPG
IMG_9275.JPG
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

More park time
P1120607.JPG
I enjoyed just watching them dancing in the park
P1120608.JPG
Such a great vibe
P1120610.JPG
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.
P1120612.JPG
Oh yeah, it was also the spot where the metal fest Copenhell took place a few days before we were there
IMG_9278.jpg
Tivoli Gardens. Again a hartly welcome by the parkmanagement
IMG_9281.JPG
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 ....
IMG_9282.JPG
this coaster was so much better.
IMG_9283.JPG
We got a backstage tour through the complete structure and ended up at the roof.
IMG_9284.JPG
This rideop was so great. The info he gave us was very interesting and entertaining
IMG_9285.JPG
The moment he told us that we would go down from the roof by coaster train, I had goosebumps everywhere.
IMG_9286.JPG
Here the first group going down
IMG_9287.JPG
IMG_9288.JPG
You can tell everybody was super excited
IMG_9291.JPG
I believe this was my first ever brakeman coaster
IMG_9292.JPG
IMG_9293.JPG
As said, every coaster is a credit
IMG_9294.JPG
The park holds a lot of attractions including a enjoyable dark ride
IMG_9296.jpg
I loved this alley

Awesome photos from some great parks!
No. 1 Water Park guy!
The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)
