Movie Park Germany renews Mystery River

250118runde5.jpg

Movie Park Germany will give their rapid river Mystery River a new theme. Next season, the 1996 attraction will be dominated by King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Wizard Merlin sends visitors on a quest for the legendary sword Excalibur.

"This is one of the oldest and most popular attractions in our park", says director Thorsten Backhaus. "We want to give this veteran the pride it deserves and therefore give it a fresh upgrade, including a new name." Mystery River is now called Excalibur - Secrets of the Dark Forest.

The ride consists of "dangerous maneuvers through enchanted forests and dark caves". Backhaus: "Every part of the attraction will get new decorations, but the layout remains the same."

The renovation has been planned for more than six years. Until now, however, there was no budget for it. For the metamorphosis, Movie Park works together with a number of well-known names in the theme park industry: the Dutch Leisure Expert Group, the German media companies IMAscore and IMAmedia and the Danish company Tema Design, part of MK Illumination.

Mystery River opened in 1996 as "Die Unendliche Geschichte", based on the movie The NeverEnding Story. When Warner Bros. Movie World was renamed Movie Park in 2005, the movie license disappeared and the attraction had to be adapted. As a cheap and quick solution they chose for cheap dolls of dwarfs, trolls and witches.

Looks nice! Always cool to see parks giving new life to old rides.

And holy crap, how awesome does that serpent animatronic in the last picture look?! :b

The old Mystery River was just plain odd. I'm glad the park is going to freshen it up. But will there be fire?

Great to hear, the ride itself was pretty fun, but definitely could use a new theme.

It was a fantastic attraction together with the bermuda triangle, lethal weapon, wild wild west, looney toones and eraser etc.

I had a subscription in that good old time (2003).
