We're always happy to share reports from far off places and recently Chris sent us a whole bunch of pictures from Colombia including some of the theme parks there.
There is a LOT to get to so we're going to split this into a few updates.

Hello, I’m Chris. I took a trip to Colombia to see some culture, ride some roller coasters, and have a good time. While I’ll be reporting on the amusement parks in the area, including Parque Del Café, I’d like to show you some of the trip besides parks as well. So here we go!
We checked out some night clubs and the area in general. The city didn’t seem ‘unsafe’ but it didn’t necessarily feel safe, either. One of our main goals of the trip was to go to a music festival called Estereo Picnic. One of the parks I was going to skip was way north of the city. Fortunately, the concert was also way north of the city…in fact, it was right next door to…
So I may be slightly off on this, but apparently at some point in the past, some graffiti artists were killed by the police, which caused a riot, which caused graffiti to be legalized. And let me tell you, it was everywhere. Some was incredible, some was alright, and a lot was just chicken scratches like the ones you see on OTSRs.
And with that, there's the end of Part One of Christopher's trip to Colombia. Part two will feature more fun and Parque del Cafe and of course includes Montaña Rusa.
Thanks again to Christopher for the pics, we hope you enjoyed!!
