: The final day and Piraten
We had saved the best coaster for last on this trip, Piraten. The biggest reason why we saved for last is that it's the coaster we really wanted to ride, and by doing this on the last day, which was a Monday, would help with crowds in the park. After the park, we just had to drive up to the ferry at Fredrikshavn to get on the ferry back home, so we had a full day at the park if we needed to.
This day we had the best weather of the whole weekend, so we had a really great time.
This park must be one of our favourite parks in Denmark, along with Fårup Sommerland, BonBon-land and Tivoli Gardens. Its a big place with a lot of space for future expansion, and have a good share of stuff to do for the whole family. Maybe not as many coasters as you would like, but 2 of the 3 they have are ace.
Karlo's Taxi, just another kiddy ride, and yoiu don't need to borrow one to ride it
Thor's Hammer, is one of those Gerstlauer Bobsleds, and they are by definition really fun to ride, and this is no exception. It boasts insane helices, nice wild mouse turns, some great airtime and 2 really sweet transitions.
Piraten, is the new kick A$$ mega-lite coaster from Intamin. And there is just one thing to say about it, GO AND RIDE ONE!! They are awesome and might be one of the best additions that are made this year. It's not the tallest, but it have massive airtime over EVERY hill, especially the smallest of the twisty hills. It's smooth, fast and powerful everywhere else.
We rode it in every row, and more or less decide that the front of the train gave the best ride, both by the terms of smoothness, but also had a bit better air over the hills.
Now on to the final pictures from this trip:
Yay, no more driving 60!!
I think that we are close
Then a few minutes we almost wet our pants after seeing this!!
I want to ride you now
Inside the entrance we saw this area, but..
we turned right and headed in this direction instead
But before I post a crap load of Piraten pr0n, here is pictures from the rest of the park first...
After the first ride of the day, we headed toward the kiddy area for some whoring
There was some scary Mexican guys at the entrance
Wonder if you can eat it?
Get your kids, of wait you don't need them
Same as the rest of them
You can even see Piraten from it, so it's way better then the rest of these rides
Wonder what's behind this thing?
Cool, off road Go-carts, still not as cool as those at Uminonanknaknands Seaside Park
Then we got to this thing
Plain Old Norse, pretty easy
Hmm, a cows head, wonder what they have sacrificed it for?
A shot for the lift-hill geeks
A Viking chick
Thrones for the Norse Gods
And here we have Thor himself
These turns made some Gerstlauer fart-noise
Even more Helices
Even more Helices
I just love these transitions
See what I mean <3
Oh yeah, it have airtime as well
They have a water area
That have a giant bucket at the top
Next up was the Jungle Cruise
Where they have a bunch of Apes doing strange stuff
See what I mean
Then we were attacked by some hostile tribe
And were brought to their village
And they had some big Elephants there as well
Then we found Tarsanland
It's a big obstacle course, not as hard as the one at Sommerland Syd though
It had some easier routes
Through a swamp
Over logs and through some crazy spinning nets
And then finishing it of with a Takeshis Castle moment
Then we entered a Cemitary that had all the famous guys from the Wild West
A chair swing that went both ways, and had some water feature to it
I told you so
Topple tower, too bad that it was pretty lame
After a crazy golf session we went for the dinghy slides.
These are self operated and you begin by taking a dinghy
Put yourself in this position
And then press the green button, and hold on for dear life
While waiting for our time on the slides we saw this
Piraten through the TREES!!
Now it's time for Piraten!!
I love this area, but it needs less grass
They have a cool broken Pirate ship though
Even this part is speedy
Mmmm, first drop
They have a band playing
They are soon going to feel some extreme pleasure
Did we say that the park was empty
Since they were slow loading, I snapped this shot for the lift-hill geeks
This part is very fast
At this point of the turn around you were seeing stars
This is the best hill on the whole coaster
Another train returning a bunch of people that have been ejected
These twisty hills produce some massive airtime
Random cool themeing
Even more lift-hill porn
If you don't remember which ride you are looking at
Going up the lift
Did we say that the park was empty
Even the wildlife enjoy Piraten
Bad operations caused this to happen on every run
But during those I managed to take these geek photos
Did I say that it have massive airtime
Oops I almost forgot this hill
Even if we could have stayed at the park a bit longer we decided to leave a bit early to be sure that we would get on the ferry, so that meant...
We are looking forward to your clone in a few months
We'll return in the future
After we left the park we saw this sign, it could only mean one thing, PUT THE PEDAL TO THE METAL!!
On our way to the ferry we met 3 blades that probably were going to the same power plant that the hub we drove by on the way down
To pass the time we had left before the ferry, we found some old bunkers:
Complete with big guns
It's nice to feel some power between your legs
The place also had a lot of sheep
This place gave me some: CoD, RTCW:ET, MOHAA and other WW2 shooter flashbacks
These things didn't manage to stop our car on the way back to the ferry
We had to drive between all these trucks to get to the ferry
We love the fact that this Porsche driver had bikes on his roof
Then it was time to leave the harbour
The captain put the hammer down
Express Ferry POV
After a while we saw the familiar sight of the Lighthouse on Vinga
On our way into the Harbour we played chicken with a big cargo boat
Then we finally got back into Gothenburg
Hope you all enjoyed reading this Photo TR, as I did riding the coasters
