Hanno you have done it again. I think you captured me on the woodie right after Erik cracked my ribs.

Payback will be coming I can promise that!

And that frog hopper was amazing, I rode it something like 4 times in the rain with Kristen. Beware of the testicle crushing abilitys of that ride though.

Great photos as usual and I especially like the one you got of me filming Terry at almost the same moment smile cam picked that expression up!

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

I can't believe it has been that long since the last update i've posted.
I guess i've been pretty darn busy between that day and today..

Anyway.. time to continue this story.
Next stop of this fun trip was Hansa Park. The weather was not perfect that day.. i destroyed one of my camera lenses there.. but we still managed to have an amazing time and a great day.

I'll try to do more frequent updates over the next couple of weeks and maybe i'll finish this trip report someday.

Hope you like it.

Thanks Larry.

Just as a small addition.. here's some fun footage from the Crazy Mine.
I can't stop laughing just seeing the footage and remembering the fun we had that day.

Excellent trip report, Hanno! I'm such a fan of your photos. And you've now convinced me to forgo all TPR trips so that I can save up for the next Scandinavia trip. That part of the world (and it's parks) looks AMAZING.

^It was an excellent trip. The parks were so nice to us. Nearly everywhere we went we got the red carpet treatment. Surprisingly good coasters and parks as well.

Another great update from a great park.

Just to make a point, the mine train was extremely fun! but when you were not expecting the train to come to such a sudden stop, its not all that great! :p

Everyone has to check out the Crazy Mine video as it is seriously funny!
