The things you learn...

One of my crossword clues yesterday was "grooves made by tyres".

The answer was "Rita" - so that's one of the big theme park mysteries solved!

Grona lund - 1 and 2 aug

Re: Hansa-Park & Heide-Park: 14-18 April 2011

One of the things that annoyed us about heide park when I went with CF, was the dificulty in getting drinks - all the food stalls had massive queues, and none of the souvenir stalls sold drinks...

Colossos blew me away!

Big loop was actually pretty good though!

Re: Hansa-Park & Heide-Park: 14-18 April 2011

I enjoyed Nessie too! although whilst I did like the theming on novgorod, I wasn't that keen on the ride - the outdoor bit wasn't as intense as it looked, and the indoor bit was rather rough (actually prefer saw!)

oh - and the cheeseburger and chips at hansa was delicious!

colossos is amazing!

I think it is the single most overpriced rip off of any tourist attraction in the United Kingdom.
