  1. My thoughts exactly. Track was supposed to be visible days later, so they announced it. Also, there is not much sense in Opening new areas in that short frequency. Klugheim and Taron still pull in major crowds. No need to get the next thing up that quickly. Plus we don't know what else might pop up in Rookburgh. There's a good chance that there will be another family-focused attraction added to it. Or a replacement for Lilaque, or both.
  2. Thats not a Mack. It's made by Maurer Söhne, which is a completely different company. Indeed, many Macks do have the reputation of being forceless, even though there are examples that show another face (I'm thinking of Lost Gravity and especially Helix). This ride will be a whole different beast and most likely awesome.
  3. Still trying for steady shots, its really an amazing place on earth ! Oh yes, it is. I sooo fell in love with it. Mostly because it's such a soothing experience for a theme park. The landscaping is just beautiful, and the whole park encourages you to go slow, take in the beauty of it all and not rush from ride to ride, like many other parks do. So relaxing and nice. Friendly staff, great prices for food and drinks, the overall feeling of it is just so much better than most european and american parks. For me, the visit made Efteling my new number one park in Europe, the coasters mi
  4. I visited Efteling on Thursday on a relatively non-crowded day (maximum wait was 20 Minutes on Baron during peak times, and that was with Joris being down for maintenance). There was nothing implemented on Python, which had a 5 minute wait only anyways. Symbolica was wonderful, a lovely experience, though I still can't get the thought out of my head that Pardoes (the park mascot, which is represented in Animatronics, as well as walking acts) is just the kind of character that should have a machete behind is back and be a creepy halloween character. Anyways, they ride is wonderful, with gr
  5. There was a concept made for Tripsdrill years ago (you can find it here, in german http://alexkorting.de/old/Portfolio/Themepark/Tripsdrill_Flyer/Tripsdrill_Flyer3.html ) basically, you start in normal position with a dark ride part, then you have an effect where something drops down onto you and your seat is tilted backwards, then you get launched out. Sounds like a good idea to me.
  6. I would add a few dollars to that bet. That thing is done and dusted. A few years ago I would have said never ever ever...but nope... After they put in the launched flyer, Temple will go and sadly, Hollywood Tour as well. But guys, it is a freaking launched flying coaster, the longest of its kind and a worlds first, it will have phenomenal theming, it will have a restaurant, probably might even have another hotel added, it's announced less than a year after the last coaster opened to the public. Come on! What more can you do??? Just imagine what people thought of Klugheim bef
  7. Well f.. "chuckles" , ah I mean "unicorns!" My home park makes me so proud. That is my money, my loyalty in terms of attendance over years and spent well. Thank you so much Phantasialand. I am so grateful for that. A lauchned flyer. What has been made fun of in all german forums for years finally gets real. I can not believe it!
  8. Just as a reminder here. Loopings.nl is not exactly a reliable source. Or to be more precise, the opposite of that. So take that info with a grain of salt.
  9. Update from Phantasialand on the new theming of RiverQuest (quite sure that name will stay). Sadly, no English blog, but the pictures speak for themselves. https://phantasialandblog.de/river-quest-in-stein-gemeisselt/
  10. Jesus, all that hate and envy. Unbelievable. I can easily imagine those people sitting at their computers full of envy for Robb and his team. "Oh this guy gets to travel the world and make a living of posting content about Theme Parks" - thinking that it's just all play, no hard work, and having no idea how that actually works. Voicing a strong opinion on the internet is always something that might get you brutal relapse from idiots. In my experience, once they meet you face-to-face, they'll start "trying to talk about it" and make sure "they didn't mean it the way it came across", etc. e
  11. In my opinion Tarons Trains are by far the most comfortable ones I´ve ridden, and I´ve been on most of the competitors trains. You don´t really notice at all that there is a restraint, except for strong airtime moments, where they keep you in the seat. Very pleasant, very gentle, easy to board, plus the raised seats and dangling feet are cool in a non-floorless train as well.
  12. Intamin LSM. I love the Cheetah Hunt launch sound. But my favourite must be Taron. Short video: But it´s much more audible in this pov, especially the second launch. Especially when your not on the coaster, it´s also incredibly loud and adds a lot of atmosphere to the area.
  13. Sorry for the delay in answering, but I have some great input for you. First of all, if your coming in on the 28th and staying onsite for two nights, you´ll have TWO EVENINGS of ERT for Hotel Guests and Passholders on Taron and Raik - and the whole Klugheim Area. If your daughter can ride Colorado, I´m sure she can ride Raik as well which is awesome, especially with that ERT access, and Klugheim in the dark. Plus, you can go mad on Taron. As I said, I managed to tuck in about 15-25 rides in one hour, I just lost count because it was so awesome to stay seated on that coaster. I wasn´t e
  14. Ok, the 28th will suck, but you´ll get the park done in 2 days (or do you go three?). Traveling with kids and staying on-site, I would go in early and do the Fantasy Area with the kids, take a break and return to the park in the afternoon, because the day visitors (mostly those with kids) tend to leave earlier because the kids get tired. The school holiday situation should be ok by the 28th weekend, and a big advantage is that there´s no halloween event, so the 29th could turn out calm. Also be aware that there is "babyswitch" available, I don´t know how it works, but just ask at the h
  15. At the moment any visit on the weekend should be highly discouraged. There are three reasons for it (plus good weather): a) School Holidays b) Season comes to an end, so the 2-for-1 tickets handed out earlier in the year need to be used c) Taron Some things from today: Packed beyond relief on a Sunday in October (never saw that before). Taron at 90-120mins (never saw that before in October), all others > 30 min (also never saw that in October). Also loads of fans and enthusiasts in the park. Update on the building site: Drill is in place.
