  1. Tayto Park have filed planning permission for their 2021 addition. It will actually be two seperate coasters but intertwined with each other (like Taron & Raik in Phantasialand for example). The coasters will be a new generation Vekoma Suspended Thrill Coaster (https://www.vekoma.com/suspended-thrill-coasters) along with a Vekoma Family Boomerang Coaster. Really wasn't expecting one of the first new gen. suspen models to go Tayto - possible that this is the Europe First aspect the owner referred to previously. Intrigued to see how the airtime moments and inversions feel. The interact
  2. Tayto Park have announced a new €14m steel coaster for 2021. In short: - 32m tall - Said to be around 400m longer than the Cu Chuliann (1,084m) - Described as two coasters in one. Possible duelling coasters? - 1,200 throughput - Investment of 14 million euros - Planning permission is to be lodged next week (so we should hopefully be finding out more then) Confirmed in an interview with the Independent.ie: https://m.independent.ie/business/irish/two-rollercoasters-in-one-tayto-park-to-lodge-planning-for-new-14m-steel-attraction-37578690.html Currently construction is
  3. Highlander is actually being manufactured by Funtime - confirmed by Funfair Blog on Instagram who was at the announcement press event today. Not Intamin.
  4. Phantasialand is allegedly planning a large demolition project at the end of this season (January 2019). It is said to be the removal of the Geister Rikscha dark ride and the China Town area with the exception of Hotel Ling Bao and Feng Ju Palace. It certainly won't be Temple of the Nighthawk and Hollywood Tour since the park's popular dinner show Fantissima which is in the same building is currently taking bookings for 2019 and there are no signs of a replacement venue being built anytime soon (by this point a new home in Rookburgh seems very unlikely). Perhaps the China Project will in
  5. The hilly terrain and the way the park is built up with a lot of concrete makes it difficult to get an uniformly strong mobile reception through the park. After two years of planning of planning and coordination with three different service providers Phantasialand has installed a new hidden transmitter mast. The park already has two transmission towers (one at Hotel Ling Bao and the other at Wuze Town) and the third mast is there just to increase capacity for even more data traffic so guests can "send selfies anytime, anywhere, share fantastic experiences on Facebook or just check your emails
  6. Phantasialand want to keep things secret and just like with Klugheim release their own updates as part of their marketing in the run up to the opening next year. The park did tease on Instagram recently that we would be finding out more soon. Also the reason there has been no updates is that nothing noticeably has changed or progressed on site. I imagine now once the warmer weather comes things will start to progress. The only major change is one of the buildings on the Berlin street (inbetween the waffle bakery and cafe) has been removed to make way for a tunnel into Rookburgh. Source
  7. The Director of Efteling has said the 2020 attraction will be big but it won't make you scream (in other words it won't be a thrill ride) and it won't be loud. So no one should be expecting a Taron to come along. The current rumour online is a circus themed family coaster with indoor and outdoor sections (Source: Eftelflags on Themeparknl forum). There is also a rumour that it will feature a gimmick element. There was a claim that it would be a turntable of some sort although some others have suggested a drop track like Thirteen and Darkmare. Efteling have said there will be an official a
  8. Hasn't there been rumours that they are working on a new gen. Tilt coaster. Perhaps this will be a prototype for that? Energylandia in Poland is looking to install one for 2020 - and they have worked with Vekoma quite a lot especially with the new gen. LSM launch coaster F1 debuting there.
  9. Klugheim was half standing in the terms of rockwork and track work was completed in the October before opening. Rookburgh is still mostly a large concrete hole in the ground. I was hoping for a 2018 opening but my optimism has went away after seeing the site for myself and knowing how long they spent on Klugheim. The early advertising thing confuses me too though (perhaps still gives me a glimer of hope for 2018?) Maybe though it was simply to make it known what they were building before track started going up and the surprise would have been ruined.
  10. Was at the park last Thursday, and heard from a few different members of staff that Rookburgh will open in 2019. They all seem to be under that impression, and considering how much work there still is to do, and how much theming will be going in (the park's creative team have said Rookburgh would surpass Klugheim in terms of detailed and immersive theming), I now think the same to be honest. I'd say that one corner of the site where track and buildings have started to go up only covers about 30% of the area. There was a lot of activity on the rest of the site though and a lot of concrete
  11. There have been rumours for a while that Vekoma have been working on a new generation model of the tilt coaster so I'd imagine that is for Energylandia. Respectively disagree as a dual citizen of Germany and the UK. EU is flawed and needs reform but it's a good thing. The Pros far out way the cons. Getting rid of it would be terrible. But we'll leave it there, as you said better to keep the peace than debate that here.
  12. You can get subsidies for that? TIL. And this is exactly one of the reasons the EU needs to go. As cool as I think that is, the adult in me says taxpayer money doesn't need to go to things like this. If I ever find myself in Poland though, I will definitely stop by this park even with just the Intamin hyper! Oh yes definitely. Shame on the EU for creating jobs, tourism and boosting the economy in one of Europe's poorest countries....
  13. I don't disagree with Sliverado Theatre going. However the park have only just opened a family coaster and they've spent a lot of money on Colorado Adventure in recent years, so it isn't going anywhere anytime soon. CA's track was repainted, the wooden parts renewed and I believe they actually rebuilt a support to fit Chiapas in (which must have been costly) in 2014. For 2016 CA's trains received new chassis and wheels. And ever since Chiapas' construction there has been talk of new theming around the layout (Tikal was a start at Mexican theming). We've just seen how they've transformed Rive
  14. ^ Of course we can't say for certain. However the most recent rumours suggest Hollywood Tour and Temple of the Night Hawk are being removed at the end of this season (January 2018). With regards to Colorado Adventure the rumours/speculation is that when Geister Rikscha is removed and they remodel that area, the China/Mexico transition, Colorado will receive a new entrance from the main path (around where the exit for Geister Rikscha is atm) along with new theming around the layout. Be interesting to see what the next few years bring after Rookburgh.
  15. If you can definitely go in the winter. It's wonderful. Taron in the dark is just amazing.
