^ Well, I only had 4 lines to put updates so I just added the first 4 that I saw. I had every intention of making more than 1 front page entry for the other photo TRs, but now that you've gone an mentioned it, maybe I won't. ;)

^ Sorry, I was just curious. Didn't know about the four line thing and so on. Thank you for explaining it to me.

HolidayPark wrote:Well, I like Black Mamba. But you´re right, it´s not the best coaster of its kind. Theming is very well and lovely and the ride has its greatness in the first half of the ride. After the inversions it´s not more than just a nice kiddie ride. Batman and Nemesis are much more intensive. But for a family ride it is very nice and a gread addition to the park or in general for germany.

Really disappointing is Silver Star at Europapark. That ride sucks!!!

I wouldn't say Silver Star sucks... sure it may not have the airtime or layout of EGF, but it's still one of the better European coasters. It was my first hyper outside of Blackpool, so it was amazing for me at the time - and to this day it's still a great ride. Ticks boxes for Europa, anyway.

It seems a shame that EGF, like Silver Star, is prone to damage from over use of Trim Brakes...

Maybe Holiday Park have been chatting to Europa?

It's a great ride after all, but you always have one better ride in mind: GeForce, as it used to be, some years ago (when there were no staff members all around to constantly remind you that this is the "best rollercoaster in the world").

During the ERT, I took some pictures. Basically they are only "face-shots" and there is absolutely no nudity in it -- I don't think they are to interesting for people, who were not there, so I uploaded them to picasaweb. You'll find them in my gallery.

Is that a vein popping out of Robbs neck? And Elissa just laughs! That's awesome! :lolr:

Today was our day at Toverland!

Now, Toverland is one of those "never in America" type of parks, and honestly that's a good's a GREAT thing!!!!

If Toverland was in America...we'd manage to screw it up. So if you want to visit the awesomeness that this park is, you'll just have to go there yourself (or join TPR on our 2008 Europe trip... *hint* *hint*)

Actually, I was kind of telling the truth above about not wanting to do any updates, but really I just don't feel like here's some photos and a complete POV of the awesome new "Troy" at Toverland!
It's hard to describe Toverland. It's part "indoor park", part "outdoor park", part "obstable & fitness course" and it all ads up to be totally awesome!
Photo by that Hector dude.
The park really rolled out the purple sign for us!
Inside there is ALL SORTS of cool stuff. A Vekoma roller skater, all kinds of kiddie rides, a log flume, TONS of play areas, etc, etc...
Photo by the really old man.
This is one of our favorite play areas. Not sure what's it's called, but we call it the "Triangle" (even though we know it's not a triangle!)
Everyone comes crashing down...
Yay! to those who actually made it to the top!
Outside they have just opened up a brand new GCI woodie, Troy!
For all you closet lift hill enthusaists, we got some awesome shots for you too!
Oh, look...we ran into the ACE executive committee hard at work! How's that museum coming along?
Poor ACE guys got their cameras taken away....we didn't, though.... because we had permission! I just love when karma strikes back! =)
Photo by that wacky dude from Holland!
And now....prepare for the Toverland "Ropes Course!!!"
Larry's got some hot tounge action going on there.
You've got "Electric Company Worker" written all over you! (or wait...maybe that should be you want an electric company worker all over you?)
There's something so "Petarded" with Elissa in a helmet!
OMG!!! LMAO!!! OMG!!!! Wait....ok, ok....gotta catch my breath here.... Just look at that photo....
Rich bending over, and he has some kind of sausage looking thing coming out of his pants!!!!
"Hey fatty! Who are you laughing at? I don't see you're ass up here trying this!"
Miles made the BEST facial expressions ever!!! (note him sporting that sexy pink scrunchi!)
I take that back....Hector has the best expressions! (Sorry Miles!)
Photo by TPR bitch, Chris
Ok, ok...we'll get back to Troy! Sorry!
Now this is what ERT should be like! Crazy people and a near empty station!!!
Everyone loves Troy! (It's because of that damn song!!!)
Photo by wacky Holland dude.
Ooh....onride pov shots of new GCI woodie....pretty! =)
Airtime hills!
toverland20.jpg & Lou...what exactly is going on in this picture? Hmmm......
Oooh.....Station Flyby! Smile for the camera!
Elissa is showing a bit of Emoboy love!
Toverland has a real crowd pleaser on their hands!
Oh, yeah...and you can't forget they also have a Vekoma Booster Bike that's a lot of fun too! (Nice hat Lou!)
Photo by Mexican Hector
Yay for the booster bike!
Thanks again to Toverland for a really kick ass day!

Complete POV of Troy using our mounted lipstick camera. Thanks Toverland!!!

Wow, thanks for the great update(s). Toverland just looks awesome. And Troy looks pretty great too. I think that station run-by is a cool effect, also. And the POV made me laugh at the end.

"Crap, that was awesome." <<LOL

Toverland looks really cool!

It reminds me of Boomers, but even better. It doesn't look like it has that tipical themepark feel, which is a good thing.

Donkeys are my way of life!
