Hi everybody!

AVE it's an abbreviation from "Alta Velocidad Española" and that means in English: Spanish Hi-Speed But you can translate it as bird because three letters together means that.

Keep having fun and see you on Saturday, 7/7 at Parque Warner

Hey everyone!

Sorry there was no update last night. The Wi-Fi was running REALLY slow and I've only now just gotten decent enough speeds to post photos.

This update is "Day Two - Part One: Parque de Atracciones Madrid!"

Today we were back at Parque Madrid as part of the "official tour" and this park really was awesome today! We started out with 30 minutes of ERT on both Abismo and Tarantula and then they walked us over to the "kids only" kiddie coasters and we got to ride!

After Madrid we went to Parque de Atracciones Zaragoza was other amounts of awesome, but we'll do that in part two of the update.

Anyway, onto the photos!
"Ok, everyone! Get your asses on the bus!!!"
The bus rides around "wild mouse" Spanish rodes are proving to be a credit in itself!
Yay! The full group photo in front of the park!
30 minutes of ERT on Abismo was enough to get everyone lots of rides!

Tarantula was all sorts of awesome.

The only Holidog coaster James will ever ride! =)
The BEST kiddie coaster EVAR!!! (Hi Bruno!) =)
Elissa agrees! "It's TPR approved!"
Tornado didn't have scaffolding on it this year, but it's hard to tell!
Damn, Ron! You sure are limber!
"Why did I have to choose the horse?!?!"

The Hoffman Girl is points out the "Level of Senstation" for the spinning boat ride.
We're not sure why the level of sensation is "green"....maybe because of the water?
Creepy scary tree guy also gives the level of sensation thumbs up!
Yeah, Abismo was WAAAAY better than Drayton's X-Coaster.
And finally, thanks to Joseph for being a kick ass ride op!

I wrote the book about donkeys!

Thanks for the update :D

That green water, you also have that in my kiddie-homepark: Sprookjeswonderland Enkhuizen! mhaha.

Why does the bus have cushions everywhere, because of the bumpy ride? EDIT: oh wait, they just look like cushions, hehe never mind.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I wonder if Tornado is going to collapse one of these days, I mean it's obviously 'under-supported'!

Thanks for the pictures!
