Day 7 of the trip was a visit to Djurs Sommerland (and more)

This was the day that started a bit chilly (as in pretty cold) but the sun was shining, it stayed dry and the temperature climbed pretty quick to make this another fun day.

Highlight of the day: Piraten (the Intamin Mega-Lite)

Here's a bunch of pictures i took this day. Hope you enjoy the selection.

Um, no Hanno, that's NOT a fail! LOL! I loved the shot!

Beautiful pictures. Those little Intamin masterpieces look fantasticccc.

And any coaster themed to Pirates is good in my book!

Great trip report, Hanno. Your TRs are amongst my favorites! What park is next?
Some people are like slinkies. They aren't really good for much but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

Thanks for posting this update, Hanno. That was a great day!

It's funny how a little guy like Piraten can wind up being better than almost any coaster out there.

Where those marshmallows that Elissa and Kid Tums were roasting? Maybe biscuits? What the crap were those?

^I think that was the "make your own bread" attraction. And only Elissa succeeded.

intimidator 305 is like a bigger brother of the pirate coaster thing. but dosen't most intamin mega-lites usually start off with a 270 degree turn at the bottom of the hill then a hill within a hill (hhmm time to go into deep thought) :omg:
roller coasters and disc golf, are the two best things (food is pretty close in the race, nom nom nom), now time to do pull ups while smiling :airtime:

^ They all start off exactly the same since they are all clones of each other.

Intimadator305 does look fantastic, but IMO it doesn't look anything like an Mega-Lite. Having been on all 4 Mega-Lite's in the world now and then watching the POV animation of 305 I don't get the feeling they are anything alike.

Sure, they may share some similar elements or moments, but so does Millennium Force, Goliath, Expedition GeForce, and Superman: ROS.

If anything 305 looks a lot more to me like Millennium Force than it does a Mega-Lite.
