Our next park on the menu was Tripsdrill. This was a place I'd been looking forward to seeing as it looked like it might be another of those quirky, unique European parks. I was right. A really cool place. The only disappointment in the park was Mammut, the new woodie. It wasn't bad really, it was just that it really wasn't that good. When you see how good the latest GCIs and Intamins are this one really makes you scratch your head thinking what were they trying to achieve with this? Hopefully it'll at least hold up alright, but I worry as I found it a bit shuffly already.
The other disappointment for me this day was that I managed to lose my mobile phone somehow, which wasn't a huge deal as I was able to replace it easily once I got back but I was a little annoyed with myself which dampened my spirits a little this morning. To be fair to Tripsdrill they were very helpful when I got in touch with them and even emailed me to tell me that they'd looked for my phone and couldn't find it. It probably happened during the awesome ERT on G'sengte Sau, made all the more entertaining (and frightening) by Robb playing ride op! I really loved that thing and its made me even more determined to get over and try that one in Klotten!
The rest of the time was spent enjoying Tripsdrill's quirky rides and awesome food!
Here's some photos...
Park number seventeen of the trip - Tripsdrill!
Yet again a TPR trip day starts out with some awesome ERT!
Brad loves going down into the bushes.
Bill's loving G'sengte Sau!
I really love these Gerstlauer bobsleds. I must go hunt down some more. Especially since there's one right here in the UK I really should get on that!
Some places you look in Tripsdrill you wouldn't even know you're in a park! The setting really is second to none.
And then some places you look it's a bit more like a construction site. But at least the coaster is open!
The coaster at least scored some points with me for having a cool logo!
Sadly, it didn't score many more Divv points after that!
It really just didn't do much. Especially compared to some of the stuff we'd already ridden like Troy and Colossos.
But still, I'm glad I got to check it out and hopefully it's addition will help Tripsdrill grow further.
Elz looked like he had a good time at least!
Rounding out the coaster collection is this Zierer kiddie which offered plenty of opportunities to get your hands on the plant life.
Half the group was so used to not being able to walk straight by this point of the trip they didn't even realise that the bridge was wobbling.
I really was a bit lame not riding this because it spun!
I love that Tripsdrill's rapids are themed to laundry!
And they're made even better by the water cannons by the side ready to soak fellow TPR participants!
The log flume here was awesome. Not only was it the birthplace of our "fat boat", it also had...
BOOBS!!! Can't beat these European parks!
TPR trips are always a great way of finding a lover!
Tripsdrill's a stunning park with some really cool things to ride too. Definitely a place to keep an eye on.
I wasn't stupid enough to walk across that bridge this time around after nearly dying in '07!
Those stupid Adam & Eve statues got me this time around though!
Mammut was okay, like you say Divv, but no, definitely nothing special, and was probably one of the few disappointments on the trip. I didn't have huge expectations of it but was expecting it to be better than it wound up being. It's a nice family woodie though, good starter coaster for the young families at the park.
Another great update Divv! Tripsdrill looks like a great park full of quirky attractions, and is certainly on my list to visit at some point.
Shame the park ate your mobile at some point, you always seem to lose/break something on these trips like your camera.
