^^^ Yeah Cobra is crap, at least that is my opinion. Its down with Jupiter at Kijima and Space 2000 at Gyeongju World.

^^ As my brother said, opened 26-27:th of June, we rode it on the 29:th and it crashed on the 4:th of July.

Day 4: 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.

Djurs Sommerland

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.

Rides:
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:
Image
Yay, no more driving 60!!

Image
I think that we are close

Image
Then a few minutes we almost wet our pants after seeing this!!

Image
I want to ride you now

Image
Swosh

Image
Mmm, Intamin

Image
Inside the entrance we saw this area, but..

Image
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...

Image
After the first ride of the day, we headed toward the kiddy area for some whoring

Image
There was some scary Mexican guys at the entrance

Image
Mmm, credit

Image
Wonder if you can eat it?

Image
Get your kids, of wait you don't need them

Image
Same as the rest of them

Image
You can even see Piraten from it, so it's way better then the rest of these rides

Image
Credit?

Image
Wonder what's behind this thing?

Image
Cool, off road Go-carts, still not as cool as those at Uminonanknaknands Seaside Park

Image
Then we got to this thing

Image
Plain Old Norse, pretty easy

Image
Hmm, a cows head, wonder what they have sacrificed it for?

Image
A shot for the lift-hill geeks

Image
Goat Boobs!!

Image
A Viking chick

Image
Thrones for the Norse Gods

Image
And here we have Thor himself

Image
Helixy drop

Image
These turns made some Gerstlauer fart-noise

Image
Even more Helices

Image
MCBR!!

Image
Even more Helices


Image
I just love these transitions

Image
See what I mean <3

Image
Oh yeah, it have airtime as well

Image
They have a water area

Image
That have a giant bucket at the top

Image
Next up was the Jungle Cruise

Image
Where they have a bunch of Apes doing strange stuff

Like:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
See what I mean

Image
Then we were attacked by some hostile tribe

Image
And were brought to their village

Image
And they had some big Elephants there as well

Then we found Tarsanland
Image
See...

It's a big obstacle course, not as hard as the one at Sommerland Syd though
Image
It had some easier routes

Image
Over these

Image
Through a swamp

Image
Nets

Image
Over logs and through some crazy spinning nets

Image
And then finishing it of with a Takeshis Castle moment

Image
Then we entered a Cemitary that had all the famous guys from the Wild West

Image
A chair swing that went both ways, and had some water feature to it

Image
Rapids

Image
I told you so

Image
Topple tower, too bad that it was pretty lame

Image
After a crazy golf session we went for the dinghy slides.

Image
These are self operated and you begin by taking a dinghy

Image
Put yourself in this position

Image
And then press the green button, and hold on for dear life

Image
While waiting for our time on the slides we saw this

Image
Piraten through the TREES!!

Now it's time for Piraten!!
Image
Yay, Piraten

Image
I love this area, but it needs less grass

Image
They have a cool broken Pirate ship though

Image
Arghhh

Image
Intamin awesomeness

Image
Even this part is speedy

Image
Mmmm, first drop

Image
They have a band playing

Image
They are soon going to feel some extreme pleasure

Image
Wiiii, Floater

Image
Going down

Image
Did we say that the park was empty :)

Image
Up again

Image
Twisty

Image
Since they were slow loading, I snapped this shot for the lift-hill geeks

Image
This part is very fast

Image
At this point of the turn around you were seeing stars

Image
This is the best hill on the whole coaster

Image
Another train returning a bunch of people that have been ejected

Image
<3

Image
These twisty hills produce some massive airtime

Image
Random cool themeing

Image
Even more lift-hill porn

Image
Almost there

Image
Wiii

Image
If you don't remember which ride you are looking at

Image
Exit

Image
Signature shot

Image
Going up the lift

Image
Did we say that the park was empty

Image
Even the wildlife enjoy Piraten

Image
Bad operations caused this to happen on every run

But during those I managed to take these geek photos
Image
Image
Image

Image
Did I say that it have massive airtime

Image
Oops I almost forgot this hill

Image
POWER!!

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...

Image
We are looking forward to your clone in a few months

Image
Bye Piraten

Image
We'll return in the future

Image
After we left the park we saw this sign, it could only mean one thing, PUT THE PEDAL TO THE METAL!!

Image
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:
Image
Complete with big guns

Image
It's nice to feel some power between your legs :)

Image
The place also had a lot of sheep

Image
Oooo, Bunkers

Image
Image
This place gave me some: CoD, RTCW:ET, MOHAA and other WW2 shooter flashbacks

Image
These things didn't manage to stop our car on the way back to the ferry

Image
We had to drive between all these trucks to get to the ferry

Image
We love the fact that this Porsche driver had bikes on his roof

Image
Then it was time to leave the harbour

Image
The captain put the hammer down

Image
Express Ferry POV

Image
After a while we saw the familiar sight of the Lighthouse on Vinga

Image
On our way into the Harbour we played chicken with a big cargo boat

Image
Then we finally got back into Gothenburg

Hope you all enjoyed reading this Photo TR, as I did riding the coasters :)

I wrote the book about donkeys!

PIRATEN!!!! That's just the :lover:

Great TR, it looks like you had a lot of fun, even though your head got smashed up in Cobra :P

Did you get wet in Wild West Karrusellen and Ørnen?
