Fraispertuis City

  • Wednesday 22nd August 2012 
For me Fraispertuis City was the standout park of the trip. The park has a western theme. Built on a small footprint, it maximises all available space rather well. The newest coaster is the S&S El Loco model, named Timber Drop. The El Loco coaster is a much-needed improvement on the old Screaming Squirrel model. The new coaster is elegantly themed. The first drop goes through a huge log before the train twists and turns though the rest of the circuit into the final brake run. This is a good coaster on a small foot-print, so it can easily fit into any small or medium park.

The other coaster is a rather nice Soquet ride called Grand Canyon that shares its theming with the mine train dark ride. The park also boasts a spectacular battleship ride. Those riding it were spraying water on those standing outside the ride--who in turn were doing the same. Both parties were so into it that to onlookers it seemed like a battle scene from a pirate movie. Another notable attraction was the tower ride just left to the main entrance. It's very similar to the very good tower ride at Tripsdrill. I also liked the idea of the park displaying photos from different eras, giving visitors the chance to see how the park has improved over the years. There were a host of other family rides that fitted nicely within the park.
