Recommended Posts

Yesterday I wanted to get rid of my depressions of waiting for the ClubTPR Package and hating the sluggish international postal service . I decided to go on a trip to Phantasialand Bruehl, to look what have changed after my last visit in the Winter (Photo TR: Phantasialand "Winter Experience"),and after that on a fun fair that´s for two weeks located in cologne.

 

Also it´s a good possibility to make some photos of the changes the park made since last season. Wuze Earth is going to be finished and the Old Town of Berlin gets a new great show place...

Here are my photos - starting in China Town:

A small place where you can do some meditation, for getting rid of the fear you have after the ride ;)

OK, now we come to the Colorado area:

There it is... the beautiful train and track of Colorado Adventure (a nice family ride, but you already know that ;) )

While they removed "Gondelbahn 1001 Nacht", "Walzertraum - Bottichfahrt", "The Brandenburger Tor" and so on in the winter time, they built a large building which divides The Old Town Berlin area from Wuze Earth...

(often discussed in this thread: http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=54083)

477422325_035-AltBerlin.JPG.f1f243ae9f5758e2284df2abc523a080.JPG

They hughe place will be used as show area and they will put there a small merry go round or something like that.

2009025527_036-AltBerlin.JPG.d69bb528eaba42d92ecf366bd36501e6.JPG

Here is another view of the large place... IMO it looks a little bit empty, but they are not ready, yet. We´ll see...

841468136_037-WuzeEarth.JPG.47ece6f81e7d237becc0af69a476ed45.JPG

And now it´s getting more interesting for you, I guess. WUZE EARTH! It´s getting more beautiful than it was. This is a really great place for families, now. There are enough attractions for small kids and looks so nice...

887147971_040-DerLustigePapagai.JPG.720c4cc507c6e6efb493e451bb7720b6.JPG

There is THE FUNNY PARROT

921925173_043-WuzeEarth.JPG.6fc2729355a6e358cde13a48ca3f6246.JPG

There you can see more new attractions THE GAY BEE HUNTING (left) and THE WUERMLING EXPRESS (above all, but not ready, yet). There is also the WIRTL´S TAUBENTURM

1964695178_044-WuzeEarth.JPG.dd0536afbafecb7d3b46ac8013033a73.JPG

Here is a view on the see, where WÖZL´S WASSERTRETER and behind that WAKOBATO are located

489547191_045-WuzeEarth.JPG.fd52a8f4188662240cee47ab3725873c.JPG

Nice statue! Galaxy´s Entrance is also located in the Wuze area (FANTASY) right now. Don´t know wether this is it´s enduring position or not. But I hope that it will be. Then we can guess, someday it will give a 4D attraction with the wuzes...

1653670912_050-WuzeEarth.JPG.561e93fa270edac5784e766de3e52125.JPG

And that´s the last new attraction: CLOUD´S AIRMAIL

1986925560_051-WuzeEarth.JPG.0d6a5625c31ed4cfa139821bb8b52e18.JPG

Didn´t realized in the winter, that the entrance of FLIGHT OF PHOENIX has changed? By the way, someone who never has been here before won´t find HOLLYWOOD TOUR behind this small alley! I guess they will remove it in the next years???

331588385_052-WuzeEarth.JPG.2fe17daded3f95fd39708920c6a3b873.JPG

That is something for the entrance building of WUERMLING EXPRESS.

No Winjas? Anyway, that was an awesome trip report. I never realized how much stuff there was to do and see at this park, and based on your trip report I am assuming this park is huge, yet Ive reallt only payed attention to the coasters and Talocan. I REALLY want to get to this park someday as it is one of the few that is on par with the Disney and Universal parks, and very few parks are able to do that.

^I know it´s a mortal sin, but I hadn´t enough time at reaching the Wuze area before closing, so I missed them. But will make an update next time

This time I tried to take the focus on the theming and new attractions.

Cool TR! I was sad to hear about the old Schwarzkopf dark ride 1001 Nacht closing, but it looks like a lot of interesting additions have come/are coming to Phantasialand. Thanks for sharing.

I can't get over how amazing this park looks. I haven't been yet, but the theming alone would actually distract me. I actually first of Phantasialand because of the two Schwarzkopfs that were once there, I know River Quest replaced one of them...names are slipping me at the moment. Thanks for the TR.

They were called "Gebirgsbahn" and the smaller powered coaster "Grand Canyon-Bahn" (both by Anton Schwarzkopf and Werner Stengel). The "River Quest" is located on the complete area after they burned down in 2001. Here is a picture: (Source:www.freizeitparkweb.de)

Black Mamba's themeing is second to none! How is it as a ride? Is it as good as dare I say.....Batman Clones?

I think that question should answer a more experienced coaster enthusiast, because I only know the Batman Coaster at SFMM to compare with. In my opinion Black Mamba is a very intensive ride and I like it more than Batman, because of the themeing while you´re riding on that coaster. Don´t know how Nemesis at Alton Towers would crop in a comparison, until now?

... Like I told you I was still depressive and have a coaster credit on my way back after the park closes, my Topic story goes on...

Some night shots of the beautiful cologne and the cologne cathedral...

Awesome! Thank you! I might be visiting my sister in Brussels sometime next yr! And I really want to hit at least one theme park in Germany. Preferably Phantasialand

Keep in mind that you WILL need a car, cause it'd be really hard to visit them by public transport. Phantasialand is the best option, cause it's rather close, and an amazing park!

^I know it's possible in Germany, but if you're coming from Brussels, you'd first have to take a train to Koln, then to Bruhl and then take a bus to Phantasialand. And you have to get back as well. So you will need 3 days for a 1 day park-visit I guess.

You´re definitively more flexible by car and you should choose it over the train connections.

 

But 3 days!?! Isn´t it a bit excaggerated? You need around 3 1/2 - 4 hours by train, so why 3 days? Obening time is 10:00am and the park closes at 6:00pm... (I searched at the Deutsche Bahn homepage, there are driving trains between Cologne and Brussels from 08:00am - 07:00pm) So, if you want to do, it is possible to visit the park only in 1 day, too.

 

And exactly the same for Europa Park. But this park is much taller, so you will need more than one day to get the whole experience of the park.
