Piraten was sheer bliss. It's amazing how much the ride changed during ERT. My first ride on it I was so underwhelmed and disappointed, then by the end of ERT it was in my top 3! Amazing.

Day 7, Part Two:
KAROLINELUND

Our last park in Denmark, Karolinelund was a brief stop for us on the way to the ferry to Sweden. The park is quite small but is nice for what it is.

It really was just a credit run (well not for me since I already had the credits) and we also took a quick spin on the ghost train. It's a nice park to check out if you're nearby.

Here's some photos...

Today’s second park is the northern-most park in Denmark – Karolinelund!
TPRScandiScottish0019.jpg
The big attraction at this park is the Boomerang! Glad I’ve got this credit!
TPRScandiScottish0020.jpg
Erik just loves being in the centre of a Vekoma beast.
TPRScandiScottish0034.jpg
Can you see the excitement on everyone’s faces???

Here’s a closer look! Having fun Scottish Steve?
TPRScandiScottish0027.jpg
Those poor, poor souls.

At least the coaster has a quality colour scheme!
TPRScandiScottish0043.jpg
Does someone sense a lamp post in proximity?
TPRScandiScottish0044.jpg
After the sheer enjoyment of the Boomerang the group then moved onto better things… well different things at least – the Pinfari looper!
TPRScandiScottish0056.jpg
Before anyone else even got in line one person had made it on and off. Quite impressive really!
TPRScandiScottish0059.jpg
Can’t wait to see that Pinfari Loopers In The Raw DVD!!!
TPRScandiScottish0061.jpg
Check out everyone in the “Pinfari brace position”
TPRScandiScottish0068.jpg
Don't you think Mike does a real mean Mr. Potato Head impression?
TPRScandiScottish0069.jpg
OMG, I love this! Wacky Worm with TWO TRAINS!!!
TPRScandiScottish0072.jpg
Lou and Andrew do something smart and find someone on the opposite side of big to make sure they have a comfy ride.
TPRScandiScottish0073.jpg
TPDave and Erik prefer giving themselves a bit of a challenge.
TPRScandiScottish0080.jpg
Yes that is a TPKnee sticking out the car. The screams of pain were quite amusing!
TPRScandiScottish0082.jpg
As was disembarkation.
TPRScandiScottish0018.jpg
My favourite ride at Karolinelund is Spogelsestoget. Or Scottish Steve’s worst nightmare. Not only does this have ghost and ghouls to frighten him it also has…
TPRScandiScottish0084.jpg
FULL FRONTAL NUDITY!!! (Shut your eyes and scroll down Steve!)
TPRScandiScottish0063.jpg
So that was our quick visit to Karolinelund. It’s a nice place to check out if you’re ever nearby!

That’s us finished with Denmark so we can all put our DKKs away and get out our NOKKERS now!

I know EXACTLY where my passport is!

My leg hurt for ages after that!

Nice little TR Divv, i wish I could have stayed to listen to the bands that were playing, but as you said in your terrible currency joke, we had lots of SEK's to get through and we had to move on...

Overloading wacky worms make them all the more wacky.

Divv you managed to get me screaming on two out of three coasters... impressive.

Day 8, Part One:
TUSENFRYD

Well it seems that there has to be a day on each trip where I'm horribly ill. In 2008 it was that self-infflicted mess at Movie Park. This year it was at Tusenfryd but alcohol can't be blamed this time. Unfortunately a stomach problem that seems to haunt me every so often struck me today. It made the bus ride to the park hellish as I was in excruciating pain all day. Thankfully as the day wore on it subsided quite a bit but the rest of the trip I was plagued with these issues. It never got worse than this morning thankfully and I was still able to enjoy the park.

Tusenfryd has a really cool setting, it's on the side of a hill and there's some really nice trees and scenery all around. The park also has some good rides. Speed Monster is the obvious one here, and it didn't disapppoint. Thunder Coaster wasn't quite as good as I expecting based on previous reports but it was definitely the of the Vekoma woodies for me.

I will say that some of the operations seemed a bit lacklustre compared to what we had experienced so far on the trip but still, I've seen much worse.

I didn't ride too much today so let's move onto the photos...
TPRScandiDivv1424.jpg
I was horribly ill most of this day but let’s just pretend that I wasn’t and have some fun at Tusenfryd!
TPRScandiDivv1426.jpg
Everyone’s excited to partake in some Intamin penetration!
TPRScandiDivv1429.jpg
The first thing you see as you enter Tusenfryd is this very pretty carousel.
TPRScandiDivv1430.jpg
The first port of call in Tusenfryd always has to be Zoom-Zoom the ride!
TPRScandiDivv1434.jpg
Southern Steve loves going Zoom-Zoom!
TPRScandiDivv1435.jpg
Hey look, the Road Show’s in town! That’ll explain why it’s so busy today!
TPRScandiDivv1439.jpg
Speed Monster was really good! It reminded me of Maverick quite a bit actually.
TPRScandiDivv1438.jpg
It’s nice to see an accelerator that’s built on the side of a hill and not just a flat piece of land.
TPRScandiDivv1441.jpg
And now for things that we wish weren’t built at all…
TPRScandiDivv1443.jpg
It’s just a(nother frickin’) Vekoma!
TPRScandiDivv1444.jpg
Apparently an Arrow guy sneezed on the blueprints for this one which is why it’s so rough. At least that’s how Erik tells it.

TPRScandiDivv1450.jpg
Mike never misses an opportunity to cream up in front of lesbians.
TPRScandiDivv1448.jpg
We were all pretty excited to add the world’s smallest to our counts!
TPRScandiDivv1452.jpg
It’s not a Vekoma but Erik loves himself some Teeny Weeny.
TPRScandiDivv1454.jpg
Cha-frickin-ching!
TPRScandiDivv1455.jpg
Spin Spider is Tusenfryd’s new for 2009 ride. Tusenfryd showed a lot of respect for those guests who want to try out the newest contraption by assigning ONE ride op to operate the ride!
TPRScandiDivv1459.jpg
The other big attraction at Tusenfryd is Thunder Coaster. Much touted as the best of the three Vekoma woodies I was interested to see how it compared to the two I’d tried a year ago.
TPRScandiDivv1463.jpg
While I did think it was fun and definitely the best of the three it didn’t really stand out to me.
TPRScandiDivv1460.jpg
Although maybe that was just a bit of anticipointment. Because we did have some good rides.
TPRScandiDivv1461.jpg
One more look at Thunder Coaster before we move onto more cool TPR trip stuff…
TPRScandiDivv1467.jpg
Behind the scenes on Speed Monster!
TPRScandiDivv1470.jpg
How geeky am I? Bet you wish you could be this geeky! Well just wait because it gets even more geeky!
TPRScandiDivv1474.jpg
SEE!!!! This is as far into the control room thing that I got, the geekiness was all too much for me.
TPRScandiDivv1469.jpg
OMG, I’m touching the track!
Despite me having a horrendously sore stomach for most of the day I still liked Tusenfryd and even managed to get all the credits. I’ll need to go back some day!

Now we’re done with Norway so we can get rid of those NOKKERS and get out our SEKS! Wahoo!

Wow they had chains up at one point? When we finally went and rode SpinSpyder (I think about the time you waited for the supersplash) they decided to take down those chains to allow for easier linejumping.

My favorite part of that day was when some line cutter almost started a brawl with SteveC in the Thundercoaster queue. She was convinced that it was her God-given right to waddle her fat ass out of queue, purchase a chocolate-covered waffle, then cut most of the line to reclaim her former place in line. SteveC was not as convinced of this.

^ I can imagine that would have been pretty amusing!

Yeah our group waited for the SuperSplash only to get turned away after waiting for ages! That went over well!
