Photo TR: Bellewaerde Park (Belgium)

Postby Hhappy » Mon Apr 26, 2010 12:14 pm

A couple of weeks ago i had the idea to visit a couple of parks in Belgium (aka score some new credits)
Things started rolling and before i knew it.. it was time.
So after visiting Fort Fun (Germany) the previous day it was time for another early morning and a nice (long) drive to the next park.

Bellewaerde Park in Belgium was the target for today.

I did not know that much of the park before heading there and was just aiming for a relaxing day with some friends.
Yes.. today was one of those rare days where i would not be visiting a park by myself (when not on a TPR trip).

Thanks for the company Beeja, Hansrubens and (sorry i forgot your name) friend.
Although we're not like the Brit-crew.. i had a great time and enjoyed this relaxing day at the park (although my legs are still killing me.. i need to get in better shape before the trips start)

Belgium and water.. what a combo and fun :)

enough blabla picture time
(and yes.. there will be a lot of them ( 3 posts))

feel free to comment and i hope you like them.

Thanks Hanno, great pictures like always. Many memories came up while watching "Fort Fun" and "Belawaerde" - wasn´t there since I was a child. Guessed the next Trip after "Fort Fun" would be Panorama Park, but it doesn´t have a coaster credit anymore.

By the way, don´t know where you are right know. Plan to visit Drievliet, Duinrell and Walibi World this week. I´ll be in the netherlands from Wed.-Fri.

Wonderful pictures, Hanno! It looks like there's a lot more to do than rcdb let on. Also, I believe the Mayan sign said,"Run away from the excruciatingly painful Vekoma rides and their crazy Dutch designers!"

Hanno, two questions:

1. Is Bellewaerde in the Dutch speaking part of Belgie of the French speaking part of Belgique?

2. How long is your trip going to last? Or if it has already ended.

EDIT: Disregard the second question, I now read the little thing at the top.
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.

Great pictures Hanno. I really wish I could go to a park with a topple tower. Looks so awesome. And that park as well looks great. Thanks again!

1: it's in the Dutch speaking part but very close to France (it felt like there were more french speaking folks in the park then dutch speaking)
2: This was a day trip.. aka i drove 600km on Saturday and 600km on Sunday to visit two parks...
