Photo TR - Drouwenerzand - The Netherlands

Postby hansrubens » Tue Jul 27, 2010 11:22 am

Hi everyone,

I visited a park that was new for me... Yes there are still new parks for me in The Netherlands and this one has a credit too. :b

The admission price is very low. For only € 11,50 you get admission, free drinks, free Ice cream and free FOOD. Like the thread description says the park is very small and filled with "old" carnival rides.

There are two "remarkable" rides A credit, it's a small spinning coaster!!!! and a very insane flatride, I could only ride it twice that day.

It's just one of those relaxed family parks with a great atmosphere.


Pictures....

Of course we travelled in good old "dutch" style.

Always read the park rules before you enter.
IMG_0001_64.jpg
And the lovely admission list.
IMG_0001_62.jpg
You can't start a report without the park map. Sorry but this was the best map I could find.
IMG_0001_107.jpg
And don't forget about the directions. Very important too.
IMG_0001.jpg
Let's head to the first ride. It's a Disney Rip-off.

Great report Hans.

Never heard of this park. I looks like a nice place. And the ticketprice is a bargain with all the free food, icecream and drinks.

I wish the US had a small all-inclusive park like this. This looks like a fun place and I would spend my whole day on the Para-Jumper :)

When you said spinning coaster, I didn't expect something so small! However it does look like fun. Wouldn't be a bad backyard ride ;)
Coasters: 33, 31 steel, 2 wood Park count: 10, Elitch Gardens home park... :)

Yes I think adults can ride the Donkey Track none of the adults did ride it but there were no operators near so I assume it is ok to ride.

Larry I know you are American and Nice..... How could 1 night drinking with TPR cause this? I think I will never hear the end of this!!!

Thanks Larry

This report made me laugh out Loud twice!! First your quote Hans that all food must be documented and then Larry's response.

And as further information. I thought the Rocking tug was special fabricated for Drouwernerzand to look like a Hunnebed. They are very proud of it.

(A hunnebed is a tomb made of large rocks that can be found all over the North East part of the Netherlands. Just for you Nice people to understand what a hunnebed is ;) )
