Let's start with the star attraction of Serengeti : Aquasafari
The only ride in the park with a line during our visit.
Earprotection available for the kids. Well, I could have used one too, because the ride is VERY loud.
The ride op.
Starting with a calm part.
But after the calm start, the wild part starts.
Me and the ride op
To the honest, although I understand most german, I didn't really have a clue about the storyline of the ride. So I can't tell you what this theming was for.
But then hell breaks loose.
Still on Aquasafari, but as said, didn't understand the storyline, so don't know this monkey was doing there.
Another star attraction
Unfortunately, the ride op didn't feel like driving us around. He told us there were at least 10 persons needed for him to drive out. The park being completely dead, this ride being in a deserted corner of the park, it would never happen to find enough other persons to ride with us. The ride op seemed happy we turned around and started talking with a colleague while having a smoke.
I found a few pics on their website. The ride really looks like fun.
Note to the Serengeti Park management : we really appreciated that all rides where in operation although the park was really dead during our visit. But one of your drivers of Dschungel Safari is rather relaxing than working. The way he got rid of us, didn't fit in your park. We were at your park October 7, at the ride 430pm. You can look it up which ride op it was.
Well themed slides
I love the idea of having something like this for small kids.
Only a small fee of 20 eurocents per ride.
Second coaster of the park.
OMG, we're off track.
Camp out at the park.
Logflume without a waiting row. Wonder how they manage the crowd on busy days at this ride.
We jumped in.
SITZEN BLEIBEN, bitte....
And work in progress for their 2011 ride. Thanks for reading this update.

Before proceding to the next park report, I have a report for you of the Hotel Port Royal, which is the Heide Park hotel.
It was my first stay at this hotel.
View from our room.
1 strange thing : if you want to open the window completely, you need a special key. You can get this key at the reception but you have to pay a deposit or rental fee (not sure anymore what it was) of 10 euro.
Backside of the hotel
I love themepark hotels
We already had a few before dinner.
Dinner time. Excellent buffet at a cheap rate : euro 25 pp.
Included in the rate are all kind of soda's, wine and ..... BEER !!!
After dinner we headed back to the bar and showtime.
My place that evening
Also Hans' place.
"Michael, are you a nice belgian ?"
They both liked it ...
After a short night, one last look at Colossos and time to hit 4 parks in 1 day.
First park of the day : Zoo Safari & Hollywoodpark Stukenbrock.
A park I had never heard of before till I found the park on internet as a park with coasters, on our route and open the day we would pass by, so the park was included in the itinerary immediately.
After a fast ride, we arrived at Stukenbrock at opening time. Purchase of your tickets is done as you see on this picture.
The park existed 40 years in 2009. They are so happy about that, that they are still celebrating this in 2010.
One more thing : if you ever go to a safaripark, take the Nightmare on Elmstreet sountrack with you. This music turned out to be the most perfect on-board-audio ever for the Safari part.
The safaripart is much smaller than the one at Serengeti. We raced through the safaripark so that we could explore the attractionpart.
Weird park entrance
First ride of the day.
Small drop tower.
But still the ride was quite special. We got stuck for 5 minutes at the top. First moment I thought : dammit, in stead of 4 parks, we will be stuck on this the whole day. But soon I started to take some overview pictures.
The drop was very sudden after 5 minutes.
The waterride we saw from droptower, was still closed. The boats didn't look too appealing.
Waterplayground for kids
I think this is a great place for families with kids during summer.
Themed trash can
Oil Pump. I love this ride name.
Another kiddie ride
Love the ride-op's building.
Yet another double-8 coaster
Thanks to my excellent connections to all german parks, we got of course ERT on this coaster.
Not a head chopper, but definitely an arm chopper.
Hans got stuck in the ride exit
Yeah, really like this.
I believe the 'Hollywood' part in the parkname refers to these drawings.
Which are on the outside of this building.
They should use this at the park entrance I think.
Again ERT of course.
About the ERT, that was just a joke of course. It felt like ERT though because we were most of the time the only persons at the park. And still, at every ride there was a ride op.
Never saw this before at other parks
At the other side of the park, you're in the safari part again.
Guess what this is in high season !!
It's the Black Fly
The buildings are themed to the tiger colour I believe.
Wanna play ?
Michael wanted to
Michael didn't end first.
Oil pump in operation.
Radiohead found inspiration at this park.
The wateride had opened in the meanwhile
It has the slowest lifthill ever.
After gotten linejumped by a bunch of russians who arrived at the park, it was time for our team to ride.
Apart from having the slowest lifthills ever, it also has the craziest drop on a waterride I've ever seen.
Linejumping russians loved it. And our team loved it too but you will see that in the video on the next page. DON'T MISS IT !!!!!!!!!
