Photo TR : Hans' and Benny's mini Germany-France trip

Postby Groteslurf » Tue Sep 15, 2009 12:14 pm

Last week, it was time for our long planned Germany mini trip.

Together with Hans (who will also post his report and pictures in this thread), my brother-in-law Filip, and my schoolfriend Michael, we planned to visit 6 parks in 4 days. First thing we told the non-TPR members in the car is something we learned from R&E on the WCT : 'Don't be late. The car will leave at the agreed time. We will not count heads.' And it worked. We always left with everybody in the car on time ;-)

As Ring-Racer is obviously exploding in stead of riding, we skipped the Nurburgring park and stayed and extra afternoon at Europapark.

What will be in this TR :
1. Klotten
2. Holidaypark
3. Tripsdrill
4. Europapark
5. 'Baby makes her blue jeans talk' poll (you'll see)
6. Aventure Parc (Fantasticable).

Let's start with the pictures of Klotten.

After a lot (and I mean a LOT) of roadworks on the German autobahn, we arrived at our first stop at about 11 am : Klotten
DSC06990 (Medium).JPG
First ride of the day : the amazing flying boat.
DSC06991 (Medium).JPG
I felt much more unsafe than on any rollercoaster I rode so far.
DSC06992 (Medium).JPG
Going up
DSC06993 (Medium).JPG
It's such a crazy ride.
DSC06994 (Medium).JPG
We only felt safe once we were out of the water.
DSC06995 (Medium).JPG
Hans' turn. It's so weird that there isn't a ride-op.
DSC06996 (Medium).JPG
Flying boat
DSC06997 (Medium).JPG
The real reason why we visited this park.
DSC06998 (Medium).JPG
I'm glad we included this park in our schedule because it's a very nice coaster.
DSC06999 (Medium).JPG
Since there was nobody else near the coaster, we even got ERT on the coaster. We rode it 4 times in a row.

Day 1 part 1: Wild und Freizeitpark Klotten.

This a kids friendly park with a lot of rides for the smaller kids.

The coaster in the park is great though and it was the only reason we visited this park and for the boat jump thingy of course.

Like Benny mentioned we only stayed for 40 minutes cause the park was just dead but we didn't care cause there was a much better coaster to ride that day.

picture time...

The Klotti coaster is seriously underrated in that it produces massive air, always great to see pictures.

Maybe someday they will complete the Volcano flume.

That coaster looks great! The air time hills look so fun.

Is it me, or did I just read two different versions of the same trip? Either way, that coaster looks super fun and I really wish I get the chance to go one one (of that style) at some point in my life. Thanks for posting!

It's time to post my part of Holidaypark.

Expedition Geforce was running great almost the same as last year except for the bunnyhops which were ruined by the first trimbrake nevertheless it's still my number 1 steel coaster.
IMG_0001_13.jpg
They don't only got the best steel coaster they also got the worst.
IMG_0001_8.jpg
Kurbis skulpturen blah blah.
IMG_0001_6.jpg
Kurbis sheep.
IMG_0001_7.jpg
In fact in Germany everything is made out of kurbis.
IMG_0001_9.jpg
Need more proof?
IMG_0001_10.jpg

IMG_0001_11.jpg
On the Lighthousetower you have an excellent view of the EGF.
IMG_0001_14.jpg
For the rapids fanboys.
IMG_0001_16.jpg
The not so wet european rapid rides.
IMG_0001_17.jpg

IMG_0001_19.jpg
No that's not true. There are some rapids in europe that are very wet but nothing like the rapids in SFMM.
IMG_0001_18.jpg
I've got a big gun hehehe.
IMG_0001_1.jpg
OK time for the reason for visiting Holidaypark.
IMG_0001_2.jpg
Take the leftside backseat throw your hands in the air and you got the best drop in the world.
IMG_0001.jpg
Big a$$ turnaround with the famous Intamin transition from triangle to boxtrack.
IMG_0001_3.jpg
I see airtime.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

"It almost looks like a themeparkreview ERT session."

Now, that`s EXACTLY what I thought...It`s so great to see, that the germans finally learned how to ride a rollercoaster. Everyone of those was watching Robb on TV at least once I guess... ;)
