Photo TR : Copenhagen, Bakken, Tivoli Gardens, Bon Bon Land

Postby Groteslurf » Sun Jun 06, 2010 7:53 am

It's been about 3 years now since I last bought Plopsa funcard for me & my kids. But with the new Plopsa park opening in the Netherlands and the included Phantasialand entry, I bought again Plopsa annual passes. Good thing is these passes remain valid for (more than) 1 calendaryear. On my funcard which I bought yesterday, the mentioned expiry date is June 23, 2011, meaning that I will be able to visit the Plopsaparks again beginning of next season with the same annual pass. Besides the free entry & parking to all 4 Plopsaparks and the free entry to Phantasialand, you get 50 % off on the regular entrance price to Moviepark Germany, and a dozen other zoo parks. And when you buy the funcards online, you get another 16 euro discount (59 euro iso the regular 75 euro). So it is quite a good deal.

I intend to put all the parks we'll visit in the next year with the funcard in this same photo TR (+ some other random cool stuff)

Update : that was the initial plan. I decided to keep on posting my TR's in this thread. Links to every TR can be found here below.

DSC08536 (Medium).JPG
The area in which Plopsacoo is, is really nice. I would compare the atmosphere with the one in Knoebels. Very laidback.
End of part 1. Part 2 coming up within short.

Attraction overview. There aren't a lot of attractions, but the park is really nice to be at. Our initial plan was to stay at Plopsacoo till early afternoon and then visit Plopsa indoor Hasselt on the way back to home in the afternoon. We stayed till late afternoon though at Plopsacoo. Plopsa indoor Hassels will be for one of the next weekends.

Part II
DSC08515 (Medium).JPG
DSC08525 (Medium).JPG
It's a logflume.
DSC08526 (Medium).JPG
First lifthill
DSC08527 (Medium).JPG
The logflume is nothing special except for the fact that it's a 'terrain-flume'.
DSC08530 (Medium).JPG
It's really nice.
DSC08531 (Medium).JPG
Second and 'big' lifthill
DSC08532 (Medium).JPG
View from the lifthill on the park's only coaster.
DSC08529 (Medium).JPG
DSC08538 (Medium).JPG
We're used to the quality of the water they use for waterrides, but some of you might be shocked : Sewer-the-ride.
DSC08535 (Medium).JPG
The mega flyer is operating in the meanwhile.
DSC08534 (Medium).JPG
But first time for Coaster.

DSC08539 (Medium).JPG
DSC08540 (Medium).JPG
DSC08541 (Medium).JPG
DSC08542 (Medium).JPG

The great thing about this coaster is that it's another 'terrain-ride'.

DSC08564 (Medium).JPG
Mini pedalo's
DSC08662 (Medium).JPG
Didn't ride it ;-)
DSC08566 (Medium).JPG
The atmosphere at the park is really relaxed because of the awesome surroundings.
DSC08567 (Medium).JPG
My daughters (= short for my daughter and friend) rerode the logflume.
DSC08664 (Medium).JPG
And I joined them the ride after.
DSC08666 (Medium).JPG
DSC08665 (Medium).JPG
It was a hot day, so the ride was really refreshing ..... NOT !! I immediately went to the restrooms to wash my hands and face immediately after riding Splash.
DSC08570 (Medium).JPG
Time to go back to the other side of the park.

The Wildpark is a trainride through the forest. Didn't ride it this time.
DSC08588 (Medium).JPG
Time to get the picnic out of the car. On our way to the parking, we notice the publicity for their other parks.
DSC08589 (Medium).JPG
DSC08575 (Medium).JPG
We always have lunch on top of the hill.
DSC08592 (Medium).JPG
And we're going up that hill in style : Zetellift.
DSC08593 (Medium).JPG
DSC08594 (Medium).JPG
DSC08597 (Medium).JPG
DSC08599 (Medium).JPG
Every spot outside of the park (where you don't have to pay) is taken...
DSC08598 (Medium).JPG
... by cars from the Netherlands ??? (it's a joke my dear Dutch friends ;-) )
DSC08602 (Medium).JPG
I made some new friends while up in the air.
DSC08601 (Medium).JPG
DSC08603 (Medium).JPG
DSC08604 (Medium).JPG
We arrived safely at our picnic spot.
DSC08606 (Medium).JPG
Not that I dislike the rest of the park, but for sure this is my favorite spot in the park.
DSC08607 (Medium).JPG
Great views
DSC08608 (Medium).JPG
Going down again.
DSC08609 (Medium).JPG
Great views again.
DSC08610 (Medium).JPG

DSC08613 (Medium).JPG
Almost there.
DSC08586 (Medium).JPG
DSC08590 (Medium).JPG
2 long bobsled rides.
DSC08587 (Medium).JPG

DSC08614 (Medium).JPG
You're towed backwards to the top.
DSC08615 (Medium).JPG
DSC08616 (Medium).JPG
Mmmmhhhh ... wonder what would happen if the towing thingie disconnects from me all of a sudden.....
DSC08617 (Medium).JPG
DSC08625 (Medium).JPG
My daughter arriving at the top.
DSC08619 (Medium).JPG
And we're off.

As you can see it's another 'terrain-ride'.
DSC08621 (Medium).JPG
DSC08622 (Medium).JPG
DSC08623 (Medium).JPG
My daughters were ovviously braking a little bit more than me.

Great trip report :) Thanks for sharing! That park looks really lovely, and yes it does remind me of Knoebels.

The park really does look like it has a certain Knoebels vibe to you, which of course is a good thing!

Great pics!

They probably pump the water out of the creek or lake for Splash. Parks in the U.S. used to do that quite a bit.

Donkeys are my way of life!

Definitely one of the prettier parks I've ever seen; really nice. Yet another park to put on the Wish List... but sheesh, those Starflyers just freak me right the hell out. :lol:
