For this day we temporarily said Auf Wiedersehen to Germany and headed into France. It got off to a bad start when we were supposed to be staying in the city of Metz, but something had gone wrong with the booking and we ended up staying way outside the city. I had planned to visit Metz Cathedral here but all I got was a fleeting glimpse as the coach drove past it, not quite the same thing. With longer drives than planned and shorter stays in the parks as a result, things were not going well at all. But hey ho, lessons learnt.
Anyway, onto France for 2 parks.
It opened late, but did open and was average; certainly no Tibidabo beater, which still holds the title of "Malcolm's scariest walkthrough".
Something is clearly right though if they've been able to purchase a B&M, albeit at a considerable cheap rate. They've also bought Expoland's mouse coaster although that is yet to be erected in the park. Whilst I can't recommend the park as a stand-out one it is worth the visit to see how a B&M runs without the restricting mid-course brake. With that omissions Monster has become one of my favourite rides of this type. There's no theming like Nemesis or Black Mamba, but it it's forces offer a one-of-a-kind experience.
