Again don't want to spread anything but...

Okay don't want to spread anything but... I just read on a news site, which has been known to hit the nails on news like this, that Rookburgh's main attraction is indeed a coaster (Flying coaster from Vekoma). Keep in mind the park will not confirm this anytime soon so this is a rumor.

But it does make you think if they indeed place a coaster, so close after adding two, near the Night Hawk it seems pretty clear the next step is the removal of the ride.

Again this is nothing but a rumor, but I do see it as merit.

This post of my was posted on page 248 of this Thread Four pages and two and a half month (My post April 6th 2017 and announcement 20th June 2017) before the announcement of F.L.Y. took place.

Why bring this up now? The same website posted a tweet a couple of hours ago hinting to a opening tomorrow.

Tomorrow #EuropaPark opens The new VR-attraction #Yullbe and reportedly #Phantasialand opens the new area #Rookburgh , with Flying Coaster F.L.Y.

You get what we choose naturaly.

Most of the time I would have ignored the tweet but this just put me on edge. I have no idea what to make of this yet, guess we have to wait but it did peak my interest. I wonder what you guys make of it.

That looks really cool! Would you rank this above or below Area 72 at Kings Island??? Also would you rank Fly above or below Orion?

 

Mystic Timbers is CLEARLY the better 'story driven' coaster all the way

 

 

My gracious, this new area and coaster looks fantastic. Looking at the park on Google Maps it's incredible how tightly woven in each attraction is. Easily one of the top bucket list parks for those who haven't been.

Man, that doesn't look like a crazy intense ride from what I can tell, but with that level of theming it doesn't need to be. That looks really awesome. I need to make a Eurotrip in the next five years.

Man, that theming and attention to detail is amazing!! I’ve never been to this park but it seems to be a rare park that competes with Disney in terms of theming. Who owns this park?? They have some DEEP pockets!

Hotel Matamba has a coaster (Black Mamba) in front of the hotel but...

 

Hotel Charles Lindbergh has a coaster in front of your hotel room! That's (part of) the hotel to the left and right of the coaster track!

It's a family business owned by the Löffelhardt family.

Ok, thanks! King’s Island is my home park. So sounds like I’ll have to fly to “Deutschland” soon.

This looks so cool! Also, I totally though the Hotel was fake, and just provided the theming for F.L.Y... but it is actually a real hotel, of some sort according to their website. Seems like it might be a boutique hotel, with a very small number of rooms.

Yes, and for now they are only selling bundles of hotel room plus a 2-day-ticket, breakfast, three-course dinner and a F.L.Y. fast pass.

Apparently the rooms are very small and based around the Japanese capsule hotel, but from what I get from the picture these are actual rooms.

Also booked for Sunday, fingers crossed? I believe this weekend I have the highest chance on riding it soon but if I can't a couple more rides on Taron, Black Mamba and Talcon are sure to sooth the pain.

It only has 3 fewer rooms than Matamba! There are rooms on both sides of both pieces of track in that picture, and more on the back side of the right tower!

 

There's a bar that's exclusively for guests of that hotel plus there's an exclusive entrance to the ride attached to the hotel, so they've really gone all out to tie the whole area together.

 

You can see how big the rooms are in this picture from the website:ga-kabine-02.jpg
