Wow...I said I would "finnish" this 3 months ago, but I suck. But finally, I will conclude this Photo TR so I can move on to the next one!

Our last stop was Linnanmaki in the city of Helsinki, Finland. Didn't see much of the city but it seemed like a nice place but not as big or much to do like Copenhagen, Stockholm, etc. It was a pretty relaxing day as we got most done early and just hung out.

On to the photos!

Good morning from Linnanmaki. The park is on a slight hill right in the middleish of Helsinki.

Our ERT consisted of a large group of coasters, the first being Ukko. Nice to look at, but not as much to ride.
DSC_0169 (2).JPG
The trains. These rides still freak me out a bit but glad to get it out of the way first :)
DSC_0184 (2).JPG
Next up was the classic wooden coaster!
DSC_0185 (2).JPG
This was the 3rd and final side friction woodie of the trip, and probably the best for pops of air.
DSC_0193 (2).JPG
Nice view of the area from here!
DSC_0194 (2).JPG
Looking the other way....

Overview of the ride and Ukko!

Cedar Point?
DSC_0201 (2).JPG
Next up was the small version of the Intamin Ball coaster, Kirnu!
DSC_0202 (2).JPG
We enjoyed unbalanced rides during ERT! Great fun and still better than Green Lantern :)
DSC_0204 (2).JPG
Tulireki was waiting, but first....
DSC_0205 (2).JPG
We also had ERT on the spinner!
DSC_0206 (2).JPG
This was the surprise of the day for me.
DSC_0208 (2).JPG
This spinner had a great custom layout! Wish there were more of these.
DSC_0210 (2).JPG
Back at Kirnu, it started making interesting shadows on the ground.
DSC_0216 (2).JPG
The offending phallic end. We tried to ride again, but Soupy and I got stuck in the restraints and maintenance had to let us out by unscrewing the restraints!
DSC_0217 (2).JPG
The park finally opened and we started with the cute egg ride.
DSC_0220 (2).JPG
It was a nice slow ride though the park. US parks totally look like this, right???
DSC_0222 (2).JPG
Seemed like it was going to be a busy day. I think it was Saturday.
DSC_0224 (2).JPG
The next coaster (they have a lot here???) was an indoor one.
DSC_0226.JPG
I have no idea what happened during the ride, but it was cool.
DSC_0233 (2).JPG
We also got on the first Mack e-motion coaster. The only e-motion I felt was confusion on how this idea failed so bad.
DSC_0234 (2).JPG
We hiked up a lot of stairs to reach the powered on top of the rest of the place.
DSC_0235 (2).JPG
Last but not least....the water coaster of death.
DSC_0237 (2).JPG
It looks so innocent until you realize what those shields do....
DSC_0246.JPG
KT and I come screaming towards the water. Still looking good here.
DSC_0248.JPG
Nope, there we go. Completely surrounded by water.
DSC_0255.JPG
You can tell it's a group of TPR riders!
DSC_0257.JPG
Small coaster part before the drop into the splashdown.
DSC_0259.JPG
...and they're gone. Not funny how wet this is if you dont double poncho up on this one.
DSC_0273 (2).JPG
We checked out a few dark rides.
DSC_0274.JPG
I remember this being disappointing. Too much neon and not enough scary.
DSC_0275.JPG
Craig happened to be a master at claw machines and won KT an awesome toy.
DSC_0276.JPG
Quite excited and surprised! Way to go Craig!
DSC_0279.JPG
I hate clowns.
DSC_0286.JPG
This dark ride was long and disturbing.
DSC_0288.JPG
Hey look, another working Mach Tower!
DSC_0293.JPG
This isn't the first time Soupy has played with balls.
DSC_0298.JPG
Last but not least, the closest I have come to death.
DSC_0304.JPG
This flat ride is absolutely insane. Why did I let Robb make me ride it?
DSC_0310.JPG
Our day of relaxing came to an end with a stroll through Sea Life. Love that they have these at parks for an alternate activity.
DSC_0312.JPG
Very nicely themed!
DSC_0313.JPG
Turtles!
DSC_0315.JPG
Frogs are cool.
DSC_0319.JPG
They also have fish. Hi Nemo!
DSC_0325.JPG
And what is a better way to end this Photo TR than a shark??? Thanks for reading!

Nice TR! That Scandinavia trip looked like great fun. Now that I've done a Japan trip, it's time for me to save up for the next TPR or R&E trip to Scandinavia.

Fixed :lol:

I really enjoyed the ghost train at the park but my first experience on a Sky Loop was erm interesting. Definitely one of the dumber rides I've ever been on.

Just slightly overdue... ;)

Great TR! I visited Linnanmäki back in 2007 and I enjoyed it quite a good bit.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

So forgive my ignorance, but what the hell is an e-motion coaster even supposed to do..?

It's supposed to tap into you deepest emotions. For some it's fear. For others sadness. I have often seen people get off the ride in panic mode, or in full on meltdown. Most just get off happy.

Other than irritating the living hell out of you, I have no idea--and I've ridden the damn thing. :lol:

The Scandi trip in 2009 is still one of the greatest trips I ever did. Loved all the parks over there, and really would love to visit that area of the world again.
