    Efteling | Max & Moritz | Mack Powered Coasters

    I hope I'll get to ride one of the US Intamin bobsleds before they bite the dust, too. I wanted to go to Efteling to catch this credit as well but it was a complicated year for me so I didn't manage to actually do it.

    New rides @ small parks

    @Landon IMO it's a good thing that it didn't get scrapped and that a currently only waterpark can use it as a good in value jumpstart to construct a whole new amusement park. It's also rumored that the SLC with helix from Ratanga Junction has been bought by them to be put into their new park as...
