On Wednesay 29th July, @AstroDan, @John, @Mattmash and I embarked on an 18-day long European theme park road trip, visiting a mix of our old favourites, as well as wholly unexplored territory for a lot of enthusiasts! With coronavirus rates slowly rising across some of the countries we were set to visit, there was always a certain air of anxiety of "how far will we actually get?" The trip was even nicknamed "The Blocked at the Border Tour", but fortunately we managed to get through the vast majority of the original trip plan before having to make alternative arrangements. It eventually became the following: Day 1: Drive to Portsmouth - overnight Ferry to St Malo Day 2: Mont St Michel (sightseeing) Day 3: Puy Du Fou, inc. Cinescenie Day 4: Futuroscope Day 5: Le PAL Day 6: Walibi Rhône-Alpes Day 7: Chamonix/Mont Blanc/Moléson (sight seeing/alpine coasters) Day 8: Rulantica Day 9: Europa-Park Day 10: Europa-Park Day 11: Europa-Park Day 12: Tripsdrill Day 13: Phantasialand Day 14: Movie Park Germany Day 15: Walibi Holland Day 16: Slagharen/Avonturenpark Hellendoorn Day 17: Efteling Day 18: Drive home Originally, day 1 was supposed to include Paultons Park, but this was removed when it was found that Storm Chaser wouldn't be opening. Day 16 was meant to be Bobbejaanland, 18 Toverland and an additional day 19 Bellewaerde, but these were altered and removed respectively when it was announced that travel within Belgium and the Netherlands should be essential only. As per my last trip report, I intend to review the parks on the trip that I haven't done before, and I may or may not discuss my views of the new bits of the parks in their own topics, which others on the trip have done too.
