Connyland is adding two new attractions

Postby K1ngdaKa88 » Sun Feb 21, 2016 7:24 am

There will be two "new" attractions this year.

Voodoo Island re-theming

Last December Connyland announced that they will build a "big" and "scary" mountain over their splash battle, called Voodoo Island. They put this Video online:

Unfortunately this Video is in german, but they´re just saying that they´re building a big mountain, where the riders will enter and that there will be ghosts inside.

Last week, they published another Video where they showed how far the construction went.

In this Video they said that they want to thank for their community and that someone (me :lmao: ) asked what is happening at Voodoo Island. Then they said that there´s still a lot to do till Season opening, but they can do that. Finally they said that they will Keep us up to date.

The next new attraction is the

4D Cinema

Yes! Connyland get´s a 4D Cinema. It will go in the Chateau Theatre, where they had some shows before. They will be playing the film: Happy Feet 4D-Experience
They announced the new Cinema in one of their Videos, where they installed the Cinema screen.

Here they didn´t mentioned which film they will be played. This came out later, when Parkerlebnis.de published an article about it.

Edit:
Connyland has released a teasing image:

Agreed. It's cool to see smaller parks do stuff like this.

Investment in parks of this size isn't always common, so it is great to see them working on adding content and plussing existing offerings to keep things fresh.

I'm interested in how this turns out. I'll sometimes ride splash battles if I'm with a large group of friends but pass if visiting alone. An enclosed splash battle would change my thinking and i would certain ride.

New Parrot Stage & Show

In mid of January, Connyland also announced that they're building a new parrot stage and a new show called Birdy.
This was announced in this video:


This sunday they showed the new stage. The parrots are calling the stage "Conny Ei Land" (Conny Egg Land)

How the new stage looks finished:


IMO: this looks very good and it is a great upgrade for the park too, because the old parrot stage was just a white table...

PS: they will be showing an update of VooDoo Island next week

Last Sunday I've been at Connyland and so I have new photos of VooDoo Island. It wasn't operating doe the pump is broken since a week, so I don't know if it has ever opened in the 2016 season.

One more new thing:

Dino Attack get's a new front Gate

When it will be finished is not known, but the Dark ride is still operating, because there is a small path next to it where people can get to the entrance.

A few photos:

New for 2017: Kiddy Racer

Connyland announced to open a new coaster this summer. According to the teasing pictures, it will be a Gerstlauer Kiddy Racer.

New for 2017: Laser Tempel

They also announced a new attraction called "Laser Tempel" for this summer. While there isn't any information on their website, you can find a teaser on their 2017 park map.

Update: Dino Attack Gate

During the 2016 season Connyland renewed the gate for the "Dino Attack" dark ride. This is how it looks now:

And last but not least:

New Theming for the Log Flume and the Park Railroad

During this offseason Connyland re-themed the tunnel of the park railroad and the hill of the log flume next to it. They also used the opportunity to renew the electronics of the log flume. While the log flume got themed after the Grand Canyon, the railroad tunnel got a new bird wedding. (The animatronic show they play in the tunnel)
Here is the last construction update video they posted:


Both rides are back open now, but when I visited on April 8th, just the log flume was already open.


Quite a lot of news for such a small park, but that shows they want to expand their portfolio, which is IMO a good decision. I'm already looking forward to what they will be doing in the near future.

Connyland builds a 56m tall Catapult Tower

According to an interview with St. Galler Tagblatt the managing Director Erich Bran­denberger said, Connyland will be adding a 56m (184ft) tall catapult tower. They already have the building permit and construction will start soon. It is scheduled to have the foundations done until the end of the year. So they´re planning on being finished for their season opening in Easter. It will be powered with compressed air.

Mr. Brandenberger also said, they are happy to report the great season they had, with up to 4000 guests on "Auffahrt" (publich holiday) and on average 2500 to 3000 guests on a sunny sunday. The new additions are well accepted from the visitors, especially the new laser parcours, Lasertempel.
