Over a month ago, to be exactly on Saturday 8/8/15 I went to Belantis in Leipzig, Germany. I went to eastern Germany because my mum went to some Friends in Dresden over the weekend to visit a medival festival, but I don't like such stuff. Instead I could take the train and go to Belantis on Saturday and to Freizeitpark Plohn on Sunday.

So let's get started:

 

I got up at about 6am to leave at 7am. I took the tram to the Main Station of Dresden. There I took the IC to Leipzig and there the Tram and Bus to Belantis. I arrived at 9:45am, 15 minutes before the park opened. Because it was a sunny Saturday I thought that the park would be full, but the lines weren't longer than 10 minutse, excepted on the only water ride in the park, there it was about 30 minutes.

So this time I won't write as much as in other TR's, so let's go to the photos:

Uhh, I'm there

The ride itself is okay, but the atmosphere in the station with the theming and sounds, fabulous!

First I went on the new Family Coaster called "Cobra des Amun Ra" with a well themed Station.

In line for the water ride at 90F!

And the only thing I saw was that!

It was a fun ride

image.thumb.jpg.1a9d3961da4eafaf90d1ebad94ea68cb.jpg

And ejector Airtime on the first drop which was awesome! The rest of the coaster was one big rattle!

image.thumb.jpg.a3afbd0539e835b51bf6acebbb85913b.jpg

Climbing up the Lifhill

Oh and Cobra got stuck!

The Pyramid looked nice

A little Airtime never hurts

So, and here day 1 ends, tomorrow you'll see the Photos of my visit at Freizeitpark Plohn.

Nice trip report! I haven't really heard much great things about Belantis, but the park itself looks quite nice from the pictures you posted. Though your comment about Huracan seems to reflect pretty much everything I've heard about that ride.

Yeah, I have to agree... this place is definitely NOT on the top of my list. Plus, I read one of the old TR's from Robb, and apparently the boats on the flume ride are inflated? WHAT?? Edited by TheCoasterKid211

Jep, that's also a very strange feeling! Imagine: you're sitting on a hard plate which is wobbling around (especially while getting on/off the Lifthill!) and the back rest is fixed with the boat and the floor is just a thick plastic like in a river rafting Boat!

Pretty sure Belantis was the only park ever that our group voted to leave early and give up our ERT! It's such a shame that the Eurofighter is so rough. The rest of the park was fine, but it's clearly missing a signature ride.

If all of Club TPR voted to NOT get credits, you KNOW its a bad park!

No no, we all got the credits, but we were supposed to stay till close and then have ERT on the Eurofighter. We had done Plohn in the morning and this park in the late afternoon. We all ended up leaving at park close instead because no one wanted to ride it again after riding once!

^actualy I rode it 3 Times! But only because I was bored and I really liked the first drop! The rest I survived with stretching my head forwards and trying to eliminate some neck pain with holding on the OTSR by the neck! I have to say that Cobra was my favourite coaster in the park! Favourite ride was Götterflug.

That Eurofighter right there is what Hitler and Stalin is riding over and over again in the deepest level of hell.

 

Edit: Great photos by the way!

The park does look like it has loads of potential and could be great if it had a major ride. That "log flume" is weird though, I imagine it gives your backside quite the massage. Great trip report.

The park has a lot of potential! The Water ride gives you more kinda of an a$$ massage because the seat and back rest are squishing it!

 

Now, let's continue with Day 2: Freizeitpark Plohn

 

I got up again at 6am to get on the tram on 7am. I arrived at the train station somwhere in Germany where I had to wait 45 min for the next Bus to depart. But after 25 minutes another train arrived and two guys from Berlin stepped out, the same guys I met at Europapark. We took the bus to Plohn, but we missed our Exit so we had to wait for the next Bus in the other direction. Luckily it was only 30 minutes because that bus goes only once every 3 hours!! At all we arrived about one hour later than expected. We had a fun day and here I have a Video for you:

[youtu_be]

Here I have a POV of the Rafting Water Slide where the boat got stuck:

Videos are fine, but you're here to see the pics, so let's go.

And I finished that fun day with my favourite Food: Sushi! Yummy

I hope you liked reading this Photo TR

Ohh, and it's next to a woodie!

image.thumb.jpg.7fdcfacdade8e378cc0eb76cfcc6dfeb.jpg

This ride had the longest line due it only had 3 trains and only one adult and a child could sit in one car!

Wacky Worm, worst coaster in the park!

image.thumb.jpg.c9c6f7f9e14da7edc50e901b6aa8ff1b.jpg

The drop goes into an banked turn

Over the Water

image.thumb.jpg.db14da02ac49d3fb1cae783eac8ff2c7.jpg

Next was an kiddie coaster called Plohseidon, actualy it's nearly an Aquatrax because it is completely over the water! Sadly you can't see it very well on this picture.

That spinning rapids ride looks insane! The park looks great, but it looks like it could use a few expansions...

The Rapids ride was insane! It's a small but a very nice park. But this Park is still larger than you think because several areas are a bit "hidden" in the forest!

 

Maybe a new coaster?...

Well, this small park has 5 coasters, the newest one opened this year! But 4 out of these 5 are kiddie coasters! + the GCI!

 

Aw, who am I kidding? THIS PARK NEEDS AN INTAMIN!

It would be awesome, but we need to wait because they just got a new coaster so they will wait a bit!

Looks like a really neat little park. Despite it not having a real signature ride other than El Toro, the log flume looks like fun and that raft ride looks downright insane.

 

I would bet that they probably have decent food and good beer available too, so that would be a nice bonus!
