Well what do you do during the off season? Plan your start of the 2009 season off coarse
In my case it started very wild.. but it looks like it's going to be even wilder for the rest of April (keep an eye on this topic for further updates
After going skiing for a week in Austria it was coaster time. Since i was driving past Munich every year (while going to Austria) i noticed that Legoland Germany was along that route. Looking at TPR's Park Index i've also noticed that Skyline Park ain't far away either..
What's better to start the season with 2 parks in one day? More on that later.
So that was the Saturday (april 4th).. Since i'm know in the South of Germany.. i might as well drive a little further to check out Europa Park. After last years excellent experience during TPR's Europe Trip what could go wrong? And there's even a new coaster
Since Blue Fire is the name of this new coaster and everybody's talking about it.. i'll change the normal update order.. and give you some of my picture of today from Blue Fire at Europa Park.
Hope you like them..
By the way.. to which ride in the US should one compare this ride? To me it feels like a Lighter version of Maverick with a fun launch. It has more freedom in the trains (don't worry about over the shoulder restraints) and more out-of-your-seat time (which is always a good thing).
Where Maverick goes so fast that you don't know what's up or down anymore Blue Fire has less elements but still provides one excellent punch (and no rattle)..
Blue Fire is one excellent addition to and already great coaster line up at Europa Park.
Picture time. The day started of being very clouded (hence the quality of the photo's) but at the end of the day... well.. you'll see.
