The second day we were at Kerstin's neck of the woods for Spring Break, she suggested we go to Tripsdrill, an amusement park near Stuttgart. I was surprised because I had never heard of this amusement park before. It's only about 2 hours from our house and I would have thought that the Youth Center and Child Centers would utilize this gem during the summer.
The park was geared, at least I felt, more towards young kids, however the girls had fun on the rides they had as well. They did have 2 roller coasters and a water ride that were pretty fast. We didn't do the water ride as it was a little cold toward the end of our trip. We really had a blast here: the lines weren't long and there was so much for Spencer and the girls to do. Thank you Kerstin for introducing us. We'll be going back soon!
|The girls weren't allowed to take Spencer. I was so bummed cuz they're usually the ones that help take him on stuff when I get tired of it. :) And they LOVE taking him on stuff.|
|Soon they got bored of going on this ride, though, so they moved on to nearby rides while Spencer kept riding this one. :)|
I tell you, their rides were so amazing. This one was like the spinning teacups but you don't move them. They go along the track and start spinning at certain points.
|Spencer LOVED it!|
|Cute girls waiting in line at the big roller coaster. :)|
|Surprisingly Spencer could go on this. I can't remember exactly but I think he was okay at first, but he didn't want to go again. haha.|
|This was the big roller coaster. Can you see us at the bottom of the screen?|
|I just loved that even the same rides we have in America were not inside fairy-tale animals like we usually have, but shoes, barrels and beer steins.|
|This was like the spinning teacups, but in a barrel|
|Getting ready for the big roller coaster again! :)|
|The water ride behind us.|
|Xanthe feeding the fish while Brian, Xoe and Spencer went around on the boat that had the shooting water gun out the back. Another one of spencer's rides that he did NOT want to get off of.|
|I love this picture even though spencer hates posing for pictures now.|
|This was a really funny moving sidewalk. It was pretty difficult to maneuver and another thing we laughed at while trying to not look stupid at the same time.|
That night we went back to Kerstin and Christof's place for the most amazing make-your-own pizza. They made homemade crust and all the fixings. I thought I took pictures but can't find them anywhere. Hmmm.
We had such a great day and were sad we had to leave the next day. We did hit up the Go-Kart place though. Stay tuned for that. :)
