Hey everyone! This summer I am planning a visit to a few parks I'm yet to visit as well as a couple I've been to before and was looking for any tips or tricks you lot may have for me.
Liseberg (7th-9th June)
I'll be arriving at Gothenburg around Midday before checking into my hotel and having my first afternoon in Gothenburg. In the morning of the 8th I plan to wander around the city a bit before heading back into the park. On the ninth I plan on exploring the city a bit more and meeting up with a friend who lives in the area before my flight leaves at 6PM. My express pass is for the 7th and has Mechanica at 8, Balder at nine and Helix at 10. What do you recommend for grabbing a bite to eat (I heard MAX are really good for when I'm in the park) and where outside of the park would you recommend a visit to? I have a slight interest in modern art so something related to that would be great! Also, is there a way to pre-book the train trip from the airport and how much will it cost?
Europa Park/Holiday Park (Some time between 3rd-11th July)
Me and a friend are visiting another friend in Germany and at some point in the week we want to visit both Europa Park and Holiday Park. Both me and my German friend have visited Holiday Park before but we're all new to Europa. We'll be staying about an hour and a half away from Holiday and about 2 hours from Europa, and because of the distance my friend thinks it'll be alright to just visit Europa for one day. My German friend is really into theming and detailed scenery but my other friend just likes to be spun around a bit. What rides would you recommend prioritising? I also read that if the park closes earlier, it's more likely to be quiet. Would you say this would help us get things out of the way or will the place still be busy from school visits and the like? (not to mention the new ride opening weeks before) And of the days we're in Germany, when would be the best time to visit EP and HP? Again food recommendations would be great. I do remember HP having a nice Schnitzel house outside its dark ride but anything else to try out would be nice too.
Tayto Park (Sometime this year I hope)
At a recent family get together, my cousin heard I was into theme parks and invited me over to stay with his family in Belfast to head down to ROI and visit Tayto park. Outside of my previously mention trips and a few days in June when I'm working, my schedule's free until mid September so when abouts would be the best time to visit? I know the park's rather small an hasn't opened its second major ride just yet but does anyone have a plan of attack for the place?
I think that just about covers it. If you have any questions for me regarding stuff with the trips, feel free to ask me.
