Those are some really great photos!
I someday (soon hopefully!) would like to make it to Thorpe to ride Saw because it combines my two favorite things... roller coasters and horror films!
Thanks for sharing! :)

I went on this a few weeks back (before the easter break for the schools), and whilst there were some technical difficulties resulting in the ride opening late, it really was worth the wait. A great addition to the it takes some of the queue from Stealth!!!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

For the people that have not read/looked at every update so far.. it might look like i'm jumping from one week to another.. but yeah.. that's how it is.

Today i would like to present to you some more pictures from my 2 day stay at Europa Park.

I feel like i'm repeating myself but this place (to me) is just amazing and every hour spent there is worth the entire trip. I can't wait to go back there sometime..

As you've probably already seen they have opened up a new ride there called Blue Fire but i would like to give you some more pictures from this place.

below are the links to the previous update..
Blue Fire update 1
Blue Fire update 2
Europa Park Day 1

and the following is Europa Park day 2.

Hope you like them and feel free to comment.
early morning.. still plenty of fog left in the air..
the hotel i stayed in last night..
small part of the lobby..
while you are there.. don't forget to look up..
time for a relaxing walk around the park and see what i've missed the previous day..
i guess it was still too early so no passengers yet..
for all the people that wanted to learn how to...
looks easy enough..
the place keeps on impressing me with the amount of green inside the park.
for all the people that don't feel like walking...
a boat..
another kiddie ride
station building.
looks like fun for all the little kids
now what's this..
Hi larry
let's check it out..
aha, bumper cars with a ball and 2 goals on opposite sides.. could be fun with a group..
time to continue on my relaxing walk through the park..
play area with slides and all kinds of other things for the kids
european fountain..
i assume it's theming and we don't need to call the firebrigade..
more and more people are entering the park.. but i see something interesting in the distance..
not bad that i could skip this line due to staying at the hotel..
now who's the monster.. or alien??
full train.. happy riders..
Next train was an empty train.. showing of the new color scheme
front row fun..
plenty of hair..
solar power in the park specs..
there are so many fine details to look at..
if you are there.. don't forget to check out this exhibition
retry for the picture of the day before..
one of the spots where a lot of people take pictures from..
another boat with riders about to get wet..
just a bench..
previous time's i did not take too many pictures from euromir.. so here are some people having fun on this ride..
so here are all the ladies..
i'm not looking.. i'm not looking..
the "postcard" angle?
trains kept on coming and coming.. never a dull moment..
one is coming down.. and the other one just entered the station..
another way of local transportation
not my kind of ride..
here they come..
it's a nice splash..
natural reaction on the ride...
and the kids are having a lot of fun playing arount the water..
time for some more Blue Fire pictures.
plenty of happy riders..
my favorite element on this ride..
plenty of theming..
and i'll leave you with this picture.. because.. well because..
I'm dutch.. not much i can do about that

Your Trip pics are really insane... so whats next!? insane???? :roll:

When i see your photos i really want to join your trip. You really visited nearly all new coaster in Europe. Just 5 ones to do.... when will we see the pictures of Rick`s Delight, el toro, i-speed, Fluch von Novgorod and Insane.

And really loved to see your pictures from my Homepark "EuropaPark". Really sad that i hadn`t the time to visit it till now this year. Every time I saw your photos i realized that i can`t wait to go there, especially riding bluefire. But my time will come soon... :airtimer:

And about SilverStar. Have you riden it? There are many people that say that it will get better and better every year. Some say this year the trims were not recognizable and the airtime is much better than ever. The new train paintings look good by the way

Hi Kooky, happy to hear you like the pictures.

about the other rides in europe:

El toro's update is already in here link
Insane will happen during the Scandi trip
Rick delight probably as soon as it opened (middle of may)
i-speed that's in italy.. i'll have to leave that to somebody else
Fluch von Novgorod Scandi trip as well

and don't forget the new high speed coaster at the Nurburgring... that one is still coming sometime this summer..

So yeah.. a fun year so far.

Regarding Silverstar.. it felt like it was less shaky (rattling) compared to last year.. but it also felt slower (to me).. but that might have been me.. i guess it's one of those rides where ambient temperature has an influence on the ride..
I'm dutch.. not much i can do about that
