Photo TR: Phantasialand


Recommended Posts

During easter I decided to go to Phantasialand, so I took the train from Switzerland to Bonn on Saturday. Instead of arriving at 4:42pm I arrived 3 hours later! Why? I'm gonna tell you...

The train departed in Zürich on time and was that till after Freiburg. Somwhere between Freiburg and Baden-Baden, actually just about 3 miles away from Europapark, the train made an emergency brake! After a few minutes of waiting an announcement came, that there was an accident with people involved, probably someone jumped in front of the train!

After TWO hours our train could continue it's journey, but didn't go any further than Karlsruhe, due the train was so late. And the next train to Bonn was then an hour later... Finally I arrived in Bonn where I met my friend Yannis, where I could sleep.

We went to Phantasialand on Sunday and Monday and it was pretty empty! The longest line showed on the board was 25 minutes, which still wasn't really true. For example, on monday it said 15 minutes for Black Mamba, but it was a walk on!

 

First I have my Video TR and then the Photos...

I don't think I've ever seen even partial sunlight in any pictures of Phantasialand until now.

 

Aside from the permanent gloom, I want to go to there.

 

Huh? Gloom is the last word that would come to my mind when talking about Phantasialand. Plenty of sun to be had and of course areas in the shade as even in Germany it can get rather hot in the summertime.

Thanks for the trip report!

 

I'm always amazed at just how good this park looks - seemingly out of nowhere (I mean, Koln isn't nowhere, but it isn't Paris, Orlando, LA, etc) there's a park with theming and design as nice as at least Universal?

 

Is there some history to the park and it's ownership that has led to this general awesomeness?

Europe has several of the most entertaining, imaginative, well themed, parks in the world.

 

And it seems like a lot of them are still using the family's ownership.

Like Disneyland used to be, when Walt was there at it's beginning.

 

I love it. Phantasialand, Europa, and Efteling are just 3 parks I am so in love with,

all because of families running the business.... and an awesome corporation (hi Mack!).

 

Again, great photo TR! I especially love all the shots of Black Mamba.

But then, that's easy ~ I love Black Mamba, too.

I would say Cologne is way more interesting and fun as a city compared to Orlando

That..eh.."thing" is called Phenie. It´s one of the six dragons that each have their own themed area in Phantasialand. Phenie is the dragon of "Fantasy" where Winjas, Hollywood Tour (the best ride in the park) and the equally awesome "Würmling Express" (you guys have to ride it!) are located. Fun fact for english speakers: The Chinese dragon is called "Wang", which sounds totally normal in german....

 

As for Cologne vs. Orlando...well as I´m living in Cologne, I prefer Orlando - but thats because I go there for vacation. Cologne has a very good economy, it´s a well kept city, it has a rich history and if you like beer, you´ll love Cologne

Plus, there are other awesome Parks nearby!

 

Orlando, on the other hand, has Disney World, Universal, Fun Spot and it´s in Florida...
