Always itching for the next credit, last weekend we woke up at 06:00 on Sunday morning and rode our bikes in the snow to The Hague Central Station (too early for the trams on a Sunday) and got on a train to Gouda and then to Rotterdam, because work on the track prevented the usual direct link between The Hague and Rotterdam...
We're really tired on the train to Gouda. Yes, like the cheese.
Made it to Gouda to catch the train to Rotterdam to catch the...
Thalys! The fabled high-speed train between Amsterdam and Paris. But we're only taking it to Antwerp.
High-speed luxury, only 30 minutes from Rotterdam to Antwerp.
Original facade of Antwerp Central Station, Anno 1905. Actually, you can see from the clock that this photo was on the way back in the PM. We now catch another train to...
Hasselt. That took an hour. Now it's snowing pretty heavily.
Now we have to catch a bus, which was free for some reason, as promised by the park website. You can see (L to R) the flags of Flanders, Belgium, and the EU. Fifteen minutes later...
Yay, the park!
We walk in the snow from the bus stop.
Klus and the eponymous Plop the Gnome are there to greet us!
Statue of Samson and Gert, the original characters that launched the company (Studio 100). They produce a number of children's and teen TV programs and own several theme parks. The shows are broadcast in Belgium and the Netherlands.
First, stop, the credit!
It's a Zierer Force. Nice theming, on the train, and in the dark section...
Most of the ride is in a dark section behind the "rock" wall. You can see the "stars" inside, and there were some nice animatronics in there too, but too dark to get good photos.
Indoor waterfall on the skull mountain.
And it ran smooth as silk, no pain.
Overall, a nice little coaster.
We loved this frog hopper-type thing. It spun in both directions and did a lot of airtime popping. We'd not seen one like this before.
They had a double decker carousel...
...several well themed kiddie flats related to water...(ducks here, also frogs and mini-bumper boats)...
A play tree!
A crazy fast slide with a grippy slow down surface that twisted my ankle!
Live shows in French and Dutch...
We were shocked when they opened one of the outdoor rides!
We had some decent food, took a ride on the swings right afterwards (unwise), shopped a little, and then it was back to the train for home. Thanks for coming with us!
