Purely for time saving purposes and the fact I've done a Plopsaland blog two years running I'm combining it with Plopsa Coo! Woo!

After being spited by Heidi last year, and Bat and Rox Flyer on both visits, would this year be any better?

For Heidi, yes! Cred 199. This great little coaster is fast, twisty and has good pops of air. In a lovely themed little area it is perfect for the park

And this, the most random carousel ever

Uncomfy, slow and has a minimum height restriction.

The star flyer was also open! Now all we needed was The Bat to be open and finally, after 3 years we'd have completed the park

And to our amazement it was open!

 

Thus meaning, my 200th cred is The Bat; Left track. Yay much fun.

They also ruined their amazing slide by giving it new mats that have higher friction, such disappointment.

 

After a night near Leige where the hotel people were ironing in the café bit of the hotel, we ventured into the hills of Belgium

PlopsaCoo!

A stunning park

With a chairlift up this hill to a watchtower thing.

And the views at the top are amazing. On the right is the parks toboggan ride, but more on that later!

Just the hills of Belgium! Has me even more hyped to go to Spa De Francorchamps next month!

New for 2015 is the still new DinoSplash! A slide complex featuring the green one which is bog standard slide, orange one where you can pick a soundtrack and has lights and the blue wall air time hill slide thing. Much fun!

Then one of the 2 creds, Halvar

An odd vekoma single seater style ride that was actually pretty good fun!

The park also has a hedge maze that was also an escape room with doors and codes throughout. Very confusing and not helped by the language barrier at the start.

No automatic alt text available.

They randomly have spider monkey's too. Cos yeah.

There was a free mini golf course where the lady doesn't trust you enough to have a ball each so you have to share in your group. Oh and there's only 17 holes in use as one of them just doesn't have a hole for the ball.

Another star flyer but smaller and also operational. What joy!

A free go kart track which was a good layout, decent number of laps just always had a long queue. And one random single seater car that was so much faster. We had fun commentating the races prior to ours!

Then there's this. Vicky. Arguably the thing that made this park noticed a bit more by enthusiasts.

It's just disappointment the ride in my eyes. Never held enough speed, didn't spin, just very lacklustre. And a horrid slow moving queue full of school kids (yes they are there permanently I asked and that's totally what they said)

The facing in meant the cars do look very nice but the ride experience is lost.

Now due to the weather of keep raining on and off we were going to be spited by the one thing I was excited for. They kept sweeping the track trying to dry it but nope.

 

Then finally, without 2 hours to go the weather held up and boom! It opened

The huge toboggan with a backwards lift!

 

There were two tracks, both seemed to just like race until about 1/3 of the way down where the left one just vanishes off and gains endless speed. We did the ride twice and I only did the left as it was certainly the better track (Josh and Jack did both and they'll vouch for it). So much fun, so fast, such a gem in a gorgeous park.

 

So Plopsa Coo. If you're nearby go, it's only £20 and a visually lovely park with a few quirks, don't go out of your way though.

Our evening was spent in Cologne going to the Hard Rock and a bit of meandering in the city

We went to Phantasialand the next day. However to save time and as Josh will no doubt do a Phantasialand one and yeah I've done one the last 2 years, the next report will be Movie Park!

Heidi definitely looks a great little woodie, which is great to see open. That Carousel though looks bizarre. Is that new as well?

 

Would you say it's ironic that a ride you've been trying to get for years became cred 200?

 

Plopsacoo looks a pretty little park though.

 

Shockingly, I have still not been to a Hard Rock Cafe.
