MrMorgan's poem ROCKS! I have not laughed that hard in a long long time! I agree with the majority on these boards that patience is a virtue. Long live Robb and Elissa and the AMAZING job that they do with the site, the trips, the pictures, the videos and KidTumms! Kudos and best wishes!

Thank you so much for allowing us to "travel" along with you to Spain, I have never been overseas (**YET**), but I feel like I have with the incredible trip report! Keep up the good work....oh and I am voting for BIG MIKE again!! :b
see you in line

All your coasters are belong to us

Another Spain Update!!! Terra Mitica!

Terra Mitica is an absolutley beautiful park! It kind of reminds me of Six Flags Fiesta Texas in that it's got a cliff wall as one of it's boundries with an RCCA woodie built into it, but that's pretty much where the similarities end.

The park completely mediteranian themed with greek, roman, and Iberian sections.

Coaster wise it wasn't the best with a fairly mediocre woodie and an SLC, but overall the park was really really nice!

Anyway, onto some pics, when I do the full updates I'll talk about the park in more detail.
I mentioned the whole SFFT similarities with the cliff wall and the RCCA woodie right? Good! Check!
We started our day with ERT on the giant frisbee. It did a lot more swinging than it did spinning.
Still, it woke us all up, which some of us desperatley needed after our late night in Benidorm!
We then headed over to ERT on Magnus Colossus, which I honestly expected to be horrible, but it really wasn't that bad. It wasn't amazing or anything, but we survived!
The girls of TPR really enjoyed the ride....maybe it wasbecause of the vibration it makes....hmmm....
Hey! The girls are right! Yummy! =)

Ahh, the final coaster of our 90 minute ERT!
Nothin like some extended ride time on the SLC!
The sign says "No going down on yourself!!!"

Ok, boys, do not try to break that park rule! ;)
Elissa shares a ride with the lipstick camera. "Best riding partner I've had all trip!"
Rumor has it this view is going to completely change.
Take a REALLY good look at the Iberia section...might be the last time you ever see it....
Another look at Terra Mitica...
Yellow hat club on the log ride. Oops. the REVERSING log ride...because you know, we haven't been on many of these this trip! =)
At lunch we were treated to a greek meal complete with a naked man!!!
"26 pints later and you'll look just like me!"
Another random park shot. Purdy, huh?
I don't know why but this photo just makes me LMFAO!!!!
"Ocean Slime....or Organ Slime?"
While the Intamin Ball coaster was closed today....
It did look very HAPPY to see us! =)
No wonder why it's called the "ball" coaster!

Now thats what I call a BJ! :lolr:

Another beautiful looking Spain park and awesome update. Is the ball coaster well themed or is it just that picket fence thats theming. If so, it kind of looks bare.

Magnus Colossus not too bad?!! It must be those new Intamin trains I've heard about, but it doesn't look as if the trains have changed! When I rode it, it was like Jackhammer: The ride.

However, it does have an amazing view and I love the noise it makes for some reason. The double drop is pretty good too.

Glad you enjoyed Terra Mitica as it's an absoluely beautiful park and very underated in my opinion. Great POV of Magnus colossus, the first one I've seen.

I guess the funniest thing about the POV on Magnus' is that it seems to have been filmed in sloooow motion - and yet this is not the case, in fact I think you have cheated there Robb and actually speeded things up ;)

The park was in fact brilliant, and the theming incredible. None of this fake plaster cladding that many parks have - if they built a temple, it was a temple of real stone, when you see the hieroglyphics, they are properly carved in stone and painted accordingly.

Mitica took theming to the extreme however- so when in the Greek section, they sold for example tea towels with Santorini featured. Well hello dudes, this is Spain, just a spit from Benidorm, not Greece- give me some Mitica souvenirs!

Great ice cream however saved the day TUTTI FRUTTI :lmao:
