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...
I was horribly ill most of this day but let’s just pretend that I wasn’t and have some fun at Tusenfryd!
Everyone’s excited to partake in some Intamin penetration!
The first thing you see as you enter Tusenfryd is this very pretty carousel.
The first port of call in Tusenfryd always has to be Zoom-Zoom the ride!
Southern Steve loves going Zoom-Zoom!
Hey look, the Road Show’s in town! That’ll explain why it’s so busy today!
Speed Monster was really good! It reminded me of Maverick quite a bit actually.
It’s nice to see an accelerator that’s built on the side of a hill and not just a flat piece of land.
And now for things that we wish weren’t built at all…
It’s just a(nother frickin’) Vekoma!
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.

Mike never misses an opportunity to cream up in front of lesbians.
We were all pretty excited to add the world’s smallest to our counts!
It’s not a Vekoma but Erik loves himself some Teeny Weeny.
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!
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.
While I did think it was fun and definitely the best of the three it didn’t really stand out to me.
Although maybe that was just a bit of anticipointment. Because we did have some good rides.
One more look at Thunder Coaster before we move onto more cool TPR trip stuff…
Behind the scenes on Speed Monster!
How geeky am I? Bet you wish you could be this geeky! Well just wait because it gets even more geeky!
SEE!!!! This is as far into the control room thing that I got, the geekiness was all too much for me.
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.
