Hey everyone, I made it home safely. Andy, thanks for posting those pictures, after the 3rd mug, I really can't remember what happened, how I got back to the hotel, or anything! Somehow I made it back though, and when I got there, my jacket and stuff was already there for me!

 

As for why the beer hit me so hard, its probably the fact that besides some bread for Breakfast at Phantasialand, I hadn't eaten anything all day. Big mistake, but from what I can remember up until that 3rd mug, Oktoberfest was just simply awesome, despite the rain.

 

4 Mugs, 4 hours, 125lbs....today my liver is in pain.

 

Oktoberfest pictures will be up by the weeks end, but for now you can enjoy these Phantasialand ones.

If you're getting here from the main page, you can also find non-coaster siteseeing in Frankfurt on page 1, as well as more Phantasialand on pages 10 and 11, and all the Oktoberfest goodies can be found on page 11 as well.

 

Phantasialand was simply awesome. With such elaborate theming, uniqueness to all the rides, and a pretty cool hotel, its definitely my kind of park and I really am looking forward to returning there in a few years. Onto the pictures which cannot do the park justice. First, getting to the park.

Okcoasterfestday302.jpg.91c4f60e1476c72c794f08812b289d31.jpg

At dusk, torches came on and the place looked pretty cool

Okcoasterfestday307.jpg.62e29c9b346083a1f54bc158e672fb01.jpg

As well as some Slice by Slice, teriyakied beef

Okcoasterfestday305.jpg.50f07a3a9504fbe5fb3b3d4ed4388a72.jpg

At one of the hotel restaurants I tried the Crispy Experience, lobster soup

Okcoasterfestday303.jpg.b6622748b51661cab7e0cc1ac57c8ef3.jpg

Cool, glass bottles of Lift apple soda!

Okcoasterfestday2130.jpg.ce4098ca5c6fbe561d7e0a9fff358ff4.jpg

The hotel even has a pool, both indoor and outdoor

Okcoasterfestday309.jpg.68d4677210bbfa4d97f481df06016ea8.jpg

And Casey, save up your cash for the next TPR trip there, you'll be able to enjoy the shower

Okcoasterfestday216.jpg.fd59aa5da66c6d97121f023e67877f57.jpg

The sink ruled!

Okcoasterfestday214.jpg.98a5d6e14df7680bda1ba26198d7b1a5.jpg

The bathroom was pretty posh too

Okcoasterfestday213.jpg.446660254ad59552e1a4dc41b3ce7eb2.jpg

There's some coasters in there, and Epcot!

Okcoasterfestday212.jpg.0e0f31708fbe0252bfb5224503b4664c.jpg

The view of the park from my window

Okcoasterfestday211.jpg.1fcfd2514eec8a111757c9c61928c835.jpg

My single room was pretty elaborately themed and spacious, and the bed was a lot bigger than expected

Okcoasterfestday210.jpg.ffef3cf8ec30ca843be994c3836f7c00.jpg

and finally, here we are at Hotel PhantASIA

Okcoasterfestday209.jpg.a43ab67d46109daeadbca5f6842aa2ef.jpg

From Koln I took another train to Bruhl. Here's its Schloss

Okcoasterfestday205.jpg.f93d112352356e767183f18c238f6b94.jpg

Mmmmm, brewery

Okcoasterfestday204.jpg.611d69734946ec960aa6cc7c7a311cc8.jpg

If Koln wants to put a boring coaster up there, I know of one

Okcoasterfestday203.jpg.9b4b69c3a13b522cb45cfc9680c20f39.jpg

OMG, there it is! The real reason I came to Germany. Maybe I should skip Phantasialand and just spend 2 days at the Dom

Okcoasterfestday202.jpg.9bc542db9636768c03c6a4ee729e04d0.jpg

Look, its the real Rhine, not that imposter in Frankfurt! (and we didn't go over the river like 19 times like last time!)

Okcoasterfestday201.jpg.49588ce976811447916e468a54e912e9.jpg

Look at me, I'm having fun

Now for some park photos.

Okcoasterfestday270.jpg.04c17bc91a9e0df093f2eb0862a5af5b.jpg

And new for 2007 will be another fun ride, Talocan!

Okcoasterfestday2100.jpg.d47882c199135135c2e766d2b6cd2299.jpg

Hey, look Nicole, they have one of those rides that go in that motion

Okcoasterfestday266.jpg.28803e1a0df011fc1c0d52a3060517ef.jpg

As you can tell, its a really well kept park

Okcoasterfestday268.jpg.57b1de4b7579b1b3c37f9be509859653.jpg

It didn't make me nautious! =P

Okcoasterfestday259.jpg.7ea0acd905988be6d2d4c7c222906d8e.jpg

The main reason Elissa wants to go back to the park, spinny raft ride!

Okcoasterfestday265.jpg.cedbb0f363eabb5b1abc0d4baf267baf.jpg

And then you see some dude fighting a dragon

Okcoasterfestday263.jpg.d6d0a60e1976613738347786fa3c9325.jpg

And then you end up in Arabia

Okcoasterfestday267.jpg.e9d1282305c0fa4d69e31b0531a72edc.jpg

The storyline is goofy. You get eaten by this dragon thing

Okcoasterfestday256.jpg.8ceea67f734cd7e1c95ac2369b2a1422.jpg

ooooh, Schwarzkopf dark ride that is also a Jeff Johnson credit!

Okcoasterfestday253.jpg.c6d1f618f7b06d0c345a53f34408c7a4.jpg

If you're into that sort of thing, the park has one of those living statue shows to watch from time to time

Okcoasterfestday247.jpg.c9749bbe3a3fa257dc7ec00966d846f8.jpg

Round and round we go

Okcoasterfestday246.jpg.ea6812b021c6cc84f67decef4565095a.jpg

I was fine though, because Fear was really awesome with some pretty unique things

Okcoasterfestday243.jpg.b3a3cf14bd57a421029bb089d2d430a2.jpg

What a Winja is, I do not know. But this sign sadly told me I would be missing out on one credit this trip

Okcoasterfestday241.jpg.716000aca0032c1247850a84a41967e6.jpg

Finally I found Wuze Town, home of Winjas!

Okcoasterfestday239.jpg.8719a7d2547e96e4f59924ca8c32978f.jpg

Temple of the Night Hawk was one seriously screwed up indoor coaster. Random music, a laser bird, and a 3rd lift that wasn't really needed.

Okcoasterfestday236.jpg.55f4f611d68e2bda5c5904590d76d3a7.jpg

The park contains a double decker steam powered carousel that used to operate in Munich at Oktoberfest

Okcoasterfestday233.jpg.24a9276ccf7b81b8c88e91728f355009.jpg

This cool looking pagoda houses a Vekoma Haunted Swing, themed to a wedding??? The mortal kombatish preshow was pretty entertaining though

Okcoasterfestday232.jpg.aa44c87f0c994e8c27f4d5574e20e0e0.jpg

Watersplash!

Okcoasterfestday231.jpg.727476023a4d1ce6f02a551744ded623.jpg

The ride is like 20 helices all thrown together around a mountain, a fort, and some other random old west theming

Okcoasterfestday220.jpg.9096b79650e288a23ceaef8db5ad2d52.jpg

Probably Vekoma's best coaster ever, and the best mine train outside of Disney

Okcoasterfestday217.jpg.e84d16c2c9bf11b7cd3118586dc2f984.jpg

Behold, the ride that will allegedly grope and fondle you if you're a boy under the age of 10

and now for the random weird darkride segment:

Okcoasterfestday3119.jpg.9ac2a4923de45fb2fe1a506a04d53021.jpg

See, I told you it was an Intamin froghopper

Okcoasterfestday3116.jpg.3aca9d03fa6edc21a6ebee0bdd3d2333.jpg

Once again, the queue is really nicely themed, and even had dudes jumping out at you

Okcoasterfestday2129.jpg.784b7ce79b17a8c3fbec42adc83324b1.jpg

Moving on, we get to Mystery Castle, home of an Intamin froghopper

Okcoasterfestday2125.jpg.2fad3114b88f169b3c3d8acfec5e485e.jpg

And then some other random giant with heads in his stomach finishes off the ride. WTF?!

Okcoasterfestday2124.jpg.30523331c0a6f1ddf05087e5a4314ea5.jpg

Ahhhh!!! He's going to follow me home

Okcoasterfestday2123.jpg.16d9fc27ae3bfc23f80380e995680237.jpg

And of course, hitchhiking Asian ghosts

Okcoasterfestday2120.jpg.75af978e8e20e53d4b748a7f0ff6da7d.jpg

And there's a chick with 3 heads and huge hands??

Okcoasterfestday2119.jpg.bea3da12938861f286167636e0e0fa5c.jpg

Now the ghosts and the Asians are mingling together

Okcoasterfestday2118.jpg.8db8f570e55e3d051174062aa9c78c6e.jpg

and Pirates of the Caribbean?? With a drunk monk??

Okcoasterfestday2117.jpg.0096704019adab82dd77f795347a51b1.jpg

and then there's Aligator wrestling???

Okcoasterfestday2115.jpg.0fa8b5cd1b24b205f94756e01e3b277c.jpg

and I have no idea whats going on

Okcoasterfestday2114.jpg.03a9079ca22ae8609c568faee4b9cf14.jpg

and then more dead people

Okcoasterfestday2113.jpg.b4a5fe21778920790d75ad95f37336fe.jpg

And then another some dude slaying a dragon scene

Okcoasterfestday2112.jpg.af3e4e4405854d4a4e4c054df8a08b21.jpg

and then the next scene is of dead people

Okcoasterfestday2111.jpg.9a9cd072f99fb741d630db67ea3e8df4.jpg

First you see some giant Asian Caseyfish

Okcoasterfestday2110.jpg.9b4982de4593943e47ff227821dea903.jpg

So here's Geister Riksha, some Asian themed haunted mansion

Oh yeah, and if you didn't know, this year Phantasialand added Black Mamba to its Africa section of the park. The ride was really trenched out, much like Nemesis, making it pretty cool. Sadly, the ride wasn't nearly as forceful as Nemesis or Batman, but its unique layout, use of tunnels, trenches, and extensive theming make for a really cool coaster. Its better than the newer B&Ms like Talon, Great Bear, and Silver Bullet, probably up there with Top Gun at Carowinds.

Okcoasterfestday297.jpg.bf36e2a40392c66056edf2e19df328f8.jpg

While not as intense as Nemesis, it still had some forces, with a really cool distorting layout and excellent theming. Go. Ride it!

Okcoasterfestday272.jpg.a4879fbd55cbf83b57cc8955353f47f6.jpg

Especially with the great foot choppers!

Okcoasterfestday318.jpg.64bae2c99eabfcaef95b51c10c4a0dfa.jpg

After this flatspin it was pretty much just a whole lotta turns and tunnels, but still fun

Okcoasterfestday296.jpg.65874152e72b8597579394f469e9447d.jpg

So much theming in the queue that there was actually real vegetables growing in the gardens!

Okcoasterfestday299.jpg.40e5cf9098322ddf0cdf56ad29092f78.jpg

Followed by a flat spin

Okcoasterfestday293.jpg.a4436af8735ebccef9c21cae06d496de.jpg

And this waterfall turnaround was very much a reminder of Nemesis

Okcoasterfestday324.jpg.af6a86db9d86e10b8a103d3518194887.jpg

Some nice whipping action in the roll

Okcoasterfestday275.jpg.47443699c24daaf9f03511b7a57ffd6f.jpg

More trenches, tunnels, and a zero G roll

Okcoasterfestday288.jpg.e17e672898ecfe3c5c893322b564680e.jpg

Nowhere else will you ever get a shot of the top of the loop from inside the loop!!

Okcoasterfestday280.jpg.26d48ceaf35cfc34b9d780e418663d97.jpg

Oh My God!

Okcoasterfestday278.jpg.ea85a9bf740caedf4d24f4d8ab91d38f.jpg

Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. But wait....does the walkway actually go THRU the loop!?!?

Okcoasterfestday291.jpg.403305188aefe3f9027aa274fa479a04.jpg

Can't get enough of that vertical loop

Okcoasterfestday228.jpg.830a9813398c09603875d2f9611a0d8c.jpg

From here you can see not only my signature shot, but also some of the trenchyness

Okcoasterfestday292.jpg.f8c25df3e485627c9fdfa961eed4caa5.jpg

Told ya!

Okcoasterfestday294.jpg.6e8817936a949187f71b396c45152956.jpg

Soon the coaster will go thru the loop

Okcoasterfestday281.jpg.0260a9474002f5dbf4e8094f7988fd3f.jpg

The coaster is pretty conceiled, but there's some good spots for shots

Okcoasterfestday2107.jpg.187fa7b296dc571201974cb48b98061e.jpg

Down the first drop (notice there's no nets here!)

Okcoasterfestday317.jpg.75f660341ee42f28e73524151360d2d1.jpg

Hey look, its other members of BACT!

Okcoasterfestday274.jpg.4a300ae598e9aa469ada0dbfa7d4a417.jpg

Up the lift goes the train

Okcoasterfestday3132.jpg.d0aa2da796393d608aea736fba6c5291.jpg

The station is themed to a cave, with sound effects like bats and stuff. Oh, there's also a giant snake splitting each row

Okcoasterfestday312.jpg.673401e7ca2e949274ab7c0a7404781f.jpg

Great Report Derek!!! Another shower pic....sweet....and it had one of those heads that you can take off of the hook, bonus points. Not only is it tall enough but I can make it go higher if need be....and a Caseyfish sighting:) Glad you made it home okay, great pics can't wait to see more.

Wow, Phantasialand always looks fantastic, but now that Black Mamba is 'growing in' some, it really looks fantastic!

 

Tomato plants inside the coaster? WTF?

 

Thanks, Derek, now I have to figure out how I'm going to get to Germany again ASAP!

I'm not able to remember a downtime of one of the Winjas! You weren't lucky.

 

But what amazed me most, WTF?! In Geister Riksha, there were FOUR alligators wrestling? Are you really sure?

Since January or something like that, the forth alligator wasn't there all the time.

 

Now, I can't wait anymore to get to Phantasialand on saturday. I'll enjoy it

^^^^Yes, I believe it. Greg is a trustworthy fellow. Did you guys find some gluten-free beer for him?

 

Nope, Greg stayed quite sober during Oktoberfest.

 

Still a good time, though, and we got Derek back to his room safe and sound (I'm sure there's posts to that regard, I haven't gotten through the entire thread yet, posting from the lobby at our Europa Park hotel...)

he just had to drink something called "Spezi", that`s a mix between Coke and Lemonade - and it didn`t make him drunken

 

No, but it actually was quite good. Normally not something a diabetic would be drinking, but with the activity levels of this trip I've been consuming a lot more sugar than I normally would, so that wasn't a problem at all (during park trips I take less insulin AND eat more sugar, and maintain a fairly level blood sugar with that combination, so I'm not arguing. Even my endo approves )

 

so he was the only guy to show all the others the way to the hotel...!

 

Oh, THAT was an adventure, to be sure! I was the sober one, but I hadn't really been paying attention during the walk over, so I had only a vague idea where the hotel was! We found our way back, though...

 

Next time I hope everyone is staying until the end!

 

Well, I sure am! We didn't get nearly enough RIDE time in for my tastes (We DID go back for a few hours the next day, BTW, so we still got some more rides in, and I picked up some awesome snacks for our train rides)

 

 

Many many thanks to Captain and his friends for being such great hosts!

Just when you thought I couldn't have any more photos from Phantasialand, I went back on Monday for more! This time I was finally joined by the rest of the BACTers who were doing the original FULL Okcoasterfest, including Movie Park, Schloss Beck, Skyline Park, Europa, Holiday, and Prater in addition to what I did.

Okcoasterfestday397.jpg.a6916a0a79277f0325402dc4e48eec1e.jpg

And after Casa Magnetica, my kokosnuss was still good to eat!

Okcoasterfestday396.jpg.5d6d6c92adb4906f1247d00c54330ebf.jpg

While this dude plays pool. (They picked me to do it, but I had no idea what they were saying. I would have ended up hitting the chick with the pool stick or something)

Okcoasterfestday393.jpg.ef21cdff50d837fe310f67e6d512afb4.jpg

And in this room, this volunteer does her best Smooth Criminal impression

Inside there's not much more than 2 scenes, in this one you'll find water flowing uphill

Okcoasterfestday391.jpg.53477e6728f699d32286236ac48cb7eb.jpg

"We're good to go!"

Okcoasterfestday390.jpg.59f4f0fe35f9ff26abfed8a5af3c8c8b.jpg

Since I can't savor my kokosnuss in the tilt house, I'll save it for later

Okcoasterfestday389.jpg.93b1d52b5afaac1a51f5ba622badac2d.jpg

Time to go to Casa Magnetica, their tilt house, which only does a few shows a day

Okcoasterfestday388.jpg.dffca899b2014c47fd1e873f7032ff6f.jpg

I'm kookoo for kokosnuss

Okcoasterfestday387.jpg.e132490df7663d2c3c07a459ab42b55b.jpg

Dude, best thing about this place! Fresh coconut!

Okcoasterfestday361.jpg.b2fcd40c0cdda32c6c97fdd31c0d97a0.jpg

Check it out, its Epcot Europe, or Eurocot, or Epcope or something

The rest of the team enjoyed the Schwarzkopf darkride that Joe hasn't been on

Okcoasterfestday351.jpg.b8ad92fc001d51c8934786d27bcb0e06.jpg

With hardly any school kids in the park today, no one wanted to play with the Octowusy

Okcoasterfestday347.jpg.9c404c017ba03cc0313683cc41d40156.jpg

Also on the Tour was a scene from The Birds. Kinda creepy the way they attacked the boat too!

Okcoasterfestday346.jpg.04b5a019b44a2933db92f17d10edd70d.jpg

Why, waterskiing Rosie O'Donnell, that's what!

It was cool that they were dueling them today too

Okcoasterfestday328.jpg.42b6420fa9b018020f9ef1291a7a7f4a.jpg

Totally 2 different layouts, each with unique things, but I think I like Fear better, with its 90 degree turn and all

I found this random creepy snake charmer statue in the not yet fully completed walkway between Black Mamba's 2 halves

First Southport Turtles, now Black Mamba turtles. Save them!!

The group started off the day with a ride on Colorado Adventure since Black Mamba didn't open until 10am. They also enjoyed the mine train

A few of the park at night, even though they're never opened in the summer past 6pm

Finally, at the end of the night we kicked back a few up in the Dragon Bar on top of the hotel. Sadly, no German chicks were here looking for Joey this time. In fact, no one was here besides us!

The indoor section of the pool. There's like a break in the wall if you want to swim outside too

This hotel even has side boob and butt!

My meal at the all you can eat Asian buffet!

The pool, restaurant, and spa from my room

One final view of the park from my hotel room

Scariest thing about Black Mamba, this he-she, shim, heher thing

Okcoasterfestday3127.jpg.340fbae51e90b1c03ec27f8d4a7f403f.jpg

Here I am hanging out with the mystery mutt guy mascot thing

Okcoasterfestday3126.jpg.a0068a6aa6a77a30fc495ea96f927825.jpg

From the park entrance, you can see a bit of Black Mamba doing its waterfall turn. I think they hope to eventually connect the front of the park to Africa around here

Since I'm so awesome, they knighted me at Mystery Castle

Okcoasterfestday3115.jpg.c775e08c0564515a4c4a26a2c751f509.jpg

I went with cinnamon sugar. And I totally balsamic chickened this thing in like 30 seconds

Okcoasterfestday3114.jpg.8badeed6d0e51654ad80f755ff3c9561.jpg

No Gran Marnier here, only banana, nutella, or cinnamon sugar

2nd best thing about this park, CREPES!

Okcoasterfestday3109.jpg.452d5c2f13b0898984498b056a990f08.jpg

The inside of Feng Ju Palace, the haunted swing themed to a wedding (seriously!)

Random scenery in the Asia section

Okcoasterfestday3108.jpg.5be17934a06b94ffbee9624db9cbaae0.jpg

Here's River Quest, one freaking awesome rapids ride. Elevator lift, whirlpool, 3 levels and 3 drops = good stuff!

Okcoasterfestday3101.jpg.51eb7dd961ef2af4a2f3a49f60f3c8b1.jpg

The two log flumes are right next to each other, but both with a different layout, and lots of interaction with Colorado Adventure. Sadly, they only had 1 side opened at a time that day

Okcoasterfestday3106.jpg.d72b484b26b42a0668847443041872df.jpg

Here's the actual entrance plaza for the park, all European themed and stuff.

Finally, the thing you've all been waiting for, the reason I wanted to get back to Germany so badly....

 

 

 

The Koln Cathedral!!

 

The shuttle driver from the hotel got us to the train station so early we managed to get an earlier train to Koln. Therefore, we had like 50 minutes to chill, and since the Dom was right outside the main train station, we figured "YOU DARN WELL KNOW WE'RE GOING HERE FOR LIKE 49 OF THOSE 50 MINUTES!!"

Good-bye real Rhine River. See you in a few years! Tomorrow's update....Oktoberfest!

Greg and I relax for our 4.5 hour journey to Munich

Okcoasterfestday423.jpg.ccbcdde3095f2c1cc30a78b79f21e11b.jpg

The engineer dude gets everything situated for our journey

Okcoasterfestday422.jpg.f64449182ac031fc34cfe39f29f619d0.jpg

Tim reserved us our own private car, and it was actually the front of the train for about half of the journey

Okcoasterfestday421.jpg.d2cb2ce503d13017d931e49874387826.jpg

And let's hop an ICE train to Munich

Okcoasterfestday420.jpg.000689521afec888c776d5e1b9974760.jpg

Grab a Paulaner for the road

Okcoasterfestday412.jpg.7b314108d6a88276a58624adebf0b1cf.jpg

"THIS is more like it!"

Okcoasterfestday414.jpg.c3c6cb39c393f60da2a78f0e67acf3c2.jpg

"This isn't what I came here for"

Okcoasterfestday417.jpg.470e01de7773bd4febd18f3b8901bf7e.jpg

It was nicer looking inside than the one in Frankfurt, but even still, it took like a minute to see

Okcoasterfestday418.jpg.0e4aea0799270b280c3bd1a7ad8e080b.jpg

Oh yeah, and the Cathedral was here too

Okcoasterfestday405.jpg.0917ef889cc40579fbb47e861ff7c4ae.jpg

Derek and Dom beer, now this is cool!

Okcoasterfestday401.jpg.94f9a0e21af9ce945a2ebf76362f21f2.jpg

There it is, in the distance. I knew it was close to the train station since I wandered thru the station last time we were there instead of going into the church
