Looks like a well built ride. Were there any problems with it when you rode it hanno?

^ No problems with any of the rides i've been on so far. All of them were well worth the entire trip and a lot of fun.

Anyway.. i guess it's time to "jump" back in time a little.

As mentioned earlier.. Legoland Germany was one of the places i've seen multiple times while driving to Austria and this year i was able to time the trip with the start of the park season.

After my visit it was time to check out Legoland Germany.

Amazing photos Hanno! I've absolutely loved the two Legolands I've visited before and I'm really determined to make it out to the other two soon!

You don't often see or hear much about the German Legoland so this really was a nice "first look" for me so thanks very much!

Does The Dragon coaster in Germany have the dark ride section at the start like the Danish and British versions?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I love the reaction on peoples faces. Do you take the pictures in burst mode or just good at timing?

I'm not using my camera's burst mode. This due to the lower quality of the pictures...

Those Legoland rides look really cool, but all the pictures you're posting is causing my computer to lag.

The park has amazing theming and the expressions of the people on the Project X coaster are priceless.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Legoland: Germany looks incredible. I love the theming of EVERYTHING, and there are so many rides, especially a lot of water rides. That Bionicle ride looks intriguing. I'm glad you are able to share these pictures with us!
