Phantasialand Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

The only politics the park are facing is related to their long term land expansion ambitions. Some locals protesting over a public garden nearby. Nothing to do with Klugheim.

 

Work is still on going. As is testing. The exterior of the restaurant is currently being themed. Hopefully not long now.

 

A video about the area's lighting was released as well.

With each passing day my hope on a 2016 opening is slowly fading away. I know we don't have the whole view with them closing up the hatches on the bridge and 1 and a half/ 2 months is a lot of time for construction work, but this whole project has the Chiapas vibe to me.

There's no Chiapas vibe at all for me. If anything my hopes of it opening are increasing by the day. The area is pretty much finished. The only major construction work left is finishing the Tavern and the transition between Klugheim and Chiapas. The buildings and area around Raik were recently finished, the rides are undergoing daily testing. Just because they is no opening date released doesn't mean it isn't opening this summer.

^True the construction seems like an August Chiapas construction (august 2013) with testing and seemingly finishing touches. But each time this construction seems to go into the final phase for a July opening suddenly another building or part of theming shows up wich takes a lot of time. I swear if one more building shows up I will lose all hope, but until I hear or see that they go fully into paving and trees I'm not feeling it.

Do you know the area they want to expand into?

They have fought for this expansion for years and if I'm correct they now have permission for the highlighted areas. However they are not allowed to extend the actual theme park the land is only for creating a year round resort.

Not sure when they'll start. Anyone else know anything about the plans??

^It remains a shame they aren't allowed to expand the park, and that they have run in's with the locals like all the time (they Suck the joy out of the themepark). I recently read someone describe Phantasialand exactly: Great park but a bad location. Imagen if this park was allowed to grow, they could keep the classic's and add new great stuff like Taron and Raik. I don't know when they plan to but just bulldoze that garden and let the folks plant their tomatoes somewhere els, greatness must arise.

No, they haven´t. It´s still in some sort of political process which is compilcated and I can´t really explain it in detail. There are some enivornmental activist groups still opposing the expansion.

There is some missinformation here.

1. The park has no permission to expand so far

2. It is not true that they can not extend the themepark, there plan is though is to turn this into a year round resort with waterpark, new hotel and a event hall. There is simply no plan to extend the themepark

3. There have been no words with problems in regards of Taron and Raik, Phantasialand simply opens the area when they feel like everything is perfect. Phantasialand is detailed oriented as you can see in the lighning video. 250 individual, hand crafted lights when they could have just bought some lights in stock.

4. I personally assume a Summer Holiday opening in the State the park is located at, which would make it mid July. This is not based on any fact or information from the park, just my assumption.

Yeah I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Phantasialand actually wants to expand in areas other than the Themepark itself. Which is totally fine by me, I think the fact that they have so many limitations spacewise, just forces them to be much more creative than any other park. I wouldn't mind if they sacrifice a few of the old rides to create a really dense and amazingly detailed park.

So much to do so little time to the summer season. Can they do it in 5 weeks as people hope?

And pictures from yesterday? where they out on Octoberfest or something? Because I doubt all this was taken on lunch hour.

^ 'So much' ??

Everything aside from the corner at Chiapas and the Tavern, both of which are being worked on, everything else is done. It's completely realistic.

10 years ago with Black Mamba, the whole place looked like a construction site with track running through it, a month before opening and they still managed it.

The park's press release details the 6 world records in Klugheim.

 

- Taron is the world's fastest multi-launch coaster.

- Taron is the longest multi-launch coaster in the world.

- Taron has the world's most intense LSM launch.

- Taron's layout features 58 intersections, during the ride it will cross its own tracks 118 times - a world record!

- Raik is the fastest and longest family boomerang in the world.

 

 

Interesting to see that they have increased its speed, as when first announced it was to be only Europe's fastest multi launch coaster.
