Now that's how I like to party! Tover had it goin' on, and I'm not sure it ever gets any better than this.

AMAZING photos once again Hanno. Thanks!

excuse me while I caps,

GO TO TOVERLAND - DO IT, DO IT NOW!
(and not just because they gave us free booze)

Ahh thats better. Great place. Not that big but eager to see what their next major expansions will bring as there selection is fantastic. Looking forward to going back

Did anyone get any shots of inside the covered water slide lit up with fibre optics?

This really was the best day of the trip, with both this park and Bobbejaanland pulling out all the stops.
((53 + 112 + 17 + 24 + Scandi + Mid America + North East + China so far + other = >4??) - (powered = bah + humbug)) = Happy Fun Time

I know EXACTLY where my passport is!

Great pics Hanno, as someone else said the Troy ones are brilliant!


Toverland somehow outdid themselves this year (something I wasn't sure was possible after '07), the only thing that could make this park better is a B&M...

I'm glad you all enjoyed Toverland, I guess all these positive reactions mean you're visiting again next year?

The Scandi trip itself won't be visiting, but there could be an add-on...

I wish Toverland was around the corner from me. :(

That picture of Larry would be great, but his shirt has sleeves. It must be a Larry imposter. Big Mike Perhaps?


I cannot believe you got the picture of me trying to abscond with the Horse. I was posing for Elissa, and somehow you also got the pic. You are amazing Hanno.

Well done as usual, Hanno!

Every time Rich says, "Hanno put up more photos," I can't wait to look at the site and see what's there! Thank you for letting me revisit these parks through your lens.
