Re: Europa-Park 2012: "Wodan" GCI Woodie + General Discussion

I'm surprised that nobody mentionned this here : We are the „Rusits“! We, which are Helena, Antje, Eric and Carlos, are living together in the little city of Rust in the south of Germany. We met at work and quickly found out that we share the same love for music. As we have been spending every free ...

Re: PortAventura 2012: "Shambhala" B&M Mega Coaster

Worst queue ever goes to Walygator for The Monster! In fact there's no queue at all, and no station too.

But this one looks really bad. It's sad because the coaster looks amazing, I have to plan a trip there!

It was indeed far better when I rode it 1 month ago, and it looks like it's getting even better. :-)

Re: Walygator: Shocking photos... of a dying park?

An article from the french newspaper Le Républicain Lorrain confirms that the park is having many difficulties at the moment. Translation (with google) The season is open for only a few weeks and already the accumulation of difficulties over the amusement park Walygator like an ugly black cloud. The...

Re: Walygator: Shocking photos... of a dying park?

Agreed Sam. I didn't write about Holiday Park in my last post. It's 1h30 from Walygator, and nearly the same size. Holiday Park entrance price is 25€, and the park is far more interesting and nice. But I really don't see Monster going there, as they already have a world class coaster (and what for a...

Re: Walygator: Shocking photos... of a dying park?

Buying the Monster was actually the biggest mistake Walygator have ever done. The coaster itself is great, as great as a B&M inverted can be, but they had no money left to build anything else (even theming for it). They spent 5 millions euro in that coaster, it could have easily been used to imp...

Re: Mack Launched Coaster for SeaWorld California 2012?

Blue Fire had this Sound in the beginning, too. It has to do with the new rubber wheels AFAIK...it won`t stay that way ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RT-45Idqlo&feature=player_embedded I remember bluefire being very quiet, even 3 days before the opening! I'm not sure it had that sound at the...

Re: Holiday Park - Phantasialand Weekend

It's still just under £10 cheaper than Towers, and I know which I'd rather pay for... Yes but you do have lots of offers for Towers, so you don't have to pay the normal price. There's nothing, or really few for Phantasialand, and everybody has to pay the normal price! Just a few words about Phantas...

Re: Holiday Park - Phantasialand Weekend

Yes they do have the offer, but as I got a free entrance with my EP annual pass, I could'nt get another day free!  :( But my friend that has no EP pass got his ticket for a second visit this year. I was actually a bit surprised that Phantasialand is more expensive than EP! It's a great park, bu...

Re: Europa-Park 2012: "Wodan" GCI Woodie + General Discussion

Went on the park yesterday, Wodan was walk on! So they took one train off, and even with 2 trains we waited 10 minutes!  :D Still no fire on the wolves, and sadly most of the blue light, and stone, in the queueline are defect, or simply gone. It was so dark that they had to put the "normal...
