Well, well.  Seems I can't stay away from Europa Park.  It really is a very cool and well themed park and it's easy to find things to do that I missed on my first visit.  However, this visit, I took my leisurely time and found the attractions and rides I missed the first visit a little over a month ago. 

I did manage to video their poor attempts to copy Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Mansion and I'll be adding those to the site.  I do have to say as well, their animatronics do not even come close to Disney standards.  They may not even come close to Six Flag's standards.  I almost felt embarrassed for them in displaying those but I guess you can only do so much. 

Got to the park just after opening and it turned out to be a very crowded day.  I had been trying to go during the week but some people I work with failed to live up to their word and "cover" for me when I had covered for them and they got a day off.  Oh well.  I'll have to see what I can do in the near future.  As I was saying before I sidetracked myself, I got to the park just after it opened and saw it was very crowded but I still managed to ride quite a few things I hadn't in my first visit and also got to repeat a few of the really good ones.  Blue Fire is an awesome coaster even riding it in the rain.  Wodan Timbur Coaster is incredible with detailed theme attention in the queue and Silver Star is a great ride, especially from the front seat, which I managed.  I also have to say that currently, Silver Star is also the tallest roller coaster I've been on.  Capping out at 239 feet, it is kind of intimidating when you're riding up the lift hill.  Gotta raise the hands and experience the "air time" as much as possible.  Also went on Matterhorn Blitz which has the tallest drop in the world for a "wild mouse" coaster.  Pegasus was a pleasant surprise and even though this is listed as a family coaster, it caught me off guard on the first drop but as I said, I was pleasantly surprised by it.  Poseidon was a pretty cool water coaster.  The theme attention was very cool as well.  It was very similar to Sea World Orland, Journey to Atlantis.  They were both built and designed by Mack Rides.  I actually got more wet due to the rain than the ride.

So another visit is done and I enjoyed it immensely.  I'm not sure what else I'm going to do while I'm here but at least I've made the most of it.  Hoping though that I'll be heading home soon.

Until then,

Bill out...
