I have to say these European parks are absolutely gorgeous and even a bit eccentric. I love the fun houses at Tivoli, and always loved seeing Hansa.
YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!'

Why do I still have a donkey title???

It's time for Day 5 of the Scandi Trip.

This day i did not take that many pictures (more like hardly any) due to the weather. It was raining most of the day and since i was already using my back-up camera lens i did not feel like risking it any further and decided to keep the camera in the bag for most of the time.

Today we visited 2 parks.
Sommerland Syd & Legoland, Denmark.

For work i had been in the area where Legoland is located before.. but the park was closed during that period. So i was looking forward to this visit. I feel i have to go back there someday and experience it again with a little better weather.

But we still managed to have a great time.

So here are some pictures, hope you enjoy them.

I guess we should be heading in that direction
DSC_0007.JPG
hmm, that looks interesting..
DSC_0011.JPG
I don't have a clue on what it says.. but i think i just liked how it looks..
DSC_0012.JPG
Time to go
DSC_0033.JPG
They did have a trucker pitt
DSC_0034.JPG
and a go-kart track as well..
DSC_0060.JPG
but first things first.. since it's already raining.. let's go on a water ride...
DSC_0067.JPG
here they go...
DSC_0069.JPG
why not indeed..
DSC_0079.JPG
some more volunteers...
DSC_0081.JPG
and this was only the small drop....
DSC_0099.JPG
here's the big drop...
DSC_0103.JPG
ehmm.. where did they go??
DSC_0105.JPG
don't sink the boat...
DSC_0110.JPG
looks like they made it...
DSC_0119.JPG
or maybe not.... gna gna gna...
DSC_0141.JPG
I guess it was a short night... time to go to the next park..
DSC_0143.JPG
Close to Billund.. there's Legoland (Denmark)
DSC_0150.JPG
kiddie credit time..
DSC_0158.JPG
time for the main event
DSC_0164.JPG
no worries.. i'll put on the brakes for you guys..
DSC_0170.JPG
so the trick was to add some more water (not just the rain) and spray that through the nice opening in front of you...
DSC_0171.JPG
and once you were done.. you would get the thumbs up..
that's it for today..
I'm dutch.. not much i can do about that

Love Robb's expression in this photo. Oh, and love the TR so far Hanno!

Robb: Holy crap! There is some kind of mutating slime growing out of my crotch!

chuck: Oh my god! Stay still and I'll smack it with with this sword!

In those pictures you can see how miserable the rain was and in most groups i would have probably done 1 courtesy ride on Falken. With TPR, we had almost a full train for entire duration of ERT and had a blast doing it. Great great memories.

Thankyou for documenting it Hanno.
