Pictures

Hanno,
As it's been said, your pictures are great.

Regarding that Swing of Death ride, I may look relaxed in the picture, but what doesn't really show is how hard I was clutching that safety bar. Literally, my knuckles were white. That thing scared me silly!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Nice photo's of one of the best themed theme parks in Europe.

That Talocan looks insane! How was the ride sensation? Did you get wet? An did you ge roasted (a little bit)? Looks like some phantastic effects to improve those ordinary top spins! Too bad it was still not open when I was there early may. I have to check it out soon!

Jolly jolly jolly jolly jolly

^ Talocan is INSANE, one of my favourite flat rides of all time. It's the combination that makes it so great: the effects are amazing, and the program is good too, especially compared to most of the Spanish top spins, which seemed to have pretty tame programs in comparison. You feel the heat from the fire, especially in the front, where the jets are timed perfectly with your view a you flip, and your feet get splashed, but you don't actually get wet the way you do on some. If you begin facing the back, you can get VERY misted, but again, not actually wet.

I really really hope that the ride is maintained well and the effects and program aren't diminished as it ages... I'd hate to go back next year or in five years and feel "meh" about the ride, as I really did love it.
