Hhappy Posted March 30, 2014 Share Posted March 30, 2014 (edited) So today I got to visit the pre(ss) opening of Chiapas at Phantasialand. From the parks website: Look forward to the world's steepest drop in a log flume ride and a 6 minute riding experience. Fun is guaranteed on the most advanced log flume ride in the world. Get ready for it! Fun ride indeed, lot's and lot's of smiles from people riding it. Lot's and lot's to see while on the ride and time flies. It does not feel like a 6 minute ride. World's steepest drop on a log flume?? I guess so, it picks up speed at that point pretty good.. but after riding coasters and having that great first drop out of your seat effect.. don't count on it on this logflume. This makes total sense.. but it would have made the ride even better When not riding.. there are plenty of places to look at the ride and the people riding it. Want to get a bite? not a problem either. The entire area looked very good and i'm sure it's going to be a hit with the families visiting the park this year. For the coaster adrenaline junkies.. nah.. for the log flume enthusiast out there.. it's one of the better (if not the best) log flumes I have seen so far in the world. Here's our POV that was shot that day: Anyway, picture time I guess this is where we are heading to today looks way better now this area made it hmm, looks like there will be some food today lots and lots of tv camera's and interviews and stuff first looks theming theming back the top of the big drop on the "airtime" hill Hungry? theming testing, in the front middle you can see the fin for the magnetic brakes being used on the ride to slow you down... random theming detail skloosh it looks good (with Black Mamba in the background) lots and lots of people will be taking this (or similar pictures) this year back of Talocan clear sign single riders info queue explanation hmm, but first.. more pictures, the ride entrance another look at the back of Talocan so many things to look at looks good Chiapas die Wasserbahn in case you were wondering height restrictions first peak inside the queue area beginning of the queue area inside the station terrace lovely area imagine dining here someday.. yummie ok, back to the opening etc.. everybody present? there's the Phantom with gopro for filming speech time yeah, open let's ride almost back at the station hands up if you are having a great time as you can see.. you don't get soaked (at the moment) top of the big drop i'm eating bugs time to cool down a bit smile smile smile just having a drink and watching the ride filled with smiling people Chiapas big drop yep, smiling for the camera going up the airtime hill for the final brake run looking good random waterfall top of the big drop yippie riders and people eating and drinking.. here's the spray next.. skloosh ok, time to have another look around splash down area theming around the big drop. middle level of the bridge is queue area going into the light random theming look at the the pretty lights random water thingy from up higher bottom of a smaller drop talocan more theming peaking inside another random spot where you can look down at the ride time to check out the queue area a bit more first tunnel random theming on the wall zig zag portion of the queue area plenty of things to look at more stuff on the walls last bit of queue before boarding you can look at the other riders from this part of the queue loading area with riders and tv crews.
