From 31st July to 16th August, myself and @John embarked on a 'salvaging summer' trip. Our grand plans of a road trip in tatters due to the government's chopping and changing, we set about using public transport only to visit some of our favourite parks in Europe. All the parks we had been to before, aside from one. The parks we visited, along with some sightseeing in Paris and Cologne, were: Jardin d'Acclimatation Parc Astérix Disneyland Paris (Parc Disneyland & Walt Disney Studios) Europa-Park & Rulantica Phantasialand Toverland Efteling In this topic, I will post a few summary thoughts. Note - this isn't a trip report thread. I have been to all except Jardin d'Acclimatation before, so don't have any real urge for a general trip report - but some observations and thoughts about the parks in 2021 will of course be made, together with thoughts on any new attractions since my last visit. Jardin d'Acclimatation This was the only new park of the trip and was mainly visited because we were already in Paris. What is there to say? It's fairly charming, clean, tidy and located in fairly central Paris on Metro Line 1. It feels a little like a much more basic version of Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen - in that it's like a public park with some cute rides thrown in amongst the flora and fauna. There isn't anything outstanding here, but it has four rollercoasters. Speed Rockets is a perfectly reasonable little Gerstlauer Bobsled. Don't expect Cobra or Heisse Fahrt here, but it's certainly a nice little investment for this park, which along with everything here, is aimed squarely at the young family market - but without the brash IPs you'd find at Paultons, Alton or Chessington. Other rides include a fun (OMG AIRTIME in the front row!?!?!) powered coaster from Soquet, a well presented Soquet family coaster (Le Dragon Chinois) and a pretty dire small Reverchon spinner (le Souris Mechanique). There is also a nice little boat ride and some other little rides to round it off. Food is good quality in the park, we sat down to a lovely meal in a lovely setting. There are also some aviaries and other animals. The price is fairly high given the offering ,though, but this is Paris and we all know capital cities come with a supplement. Around €25-30 will be enough for just the coasters (entry + pay per ride) but €35 will allow unlimited rides in the park. Certainly glad to have been to this CdA park but there's not going to be any pressing need to return. More parks to follow.
