What's new for 2018

Recommended Posts

Just like we did for 2011 - 2017 this thread will serve as a place to house a list of "what's new" for 2018 at major parks and links to the announcements. We encourage you to notify us of any new rides/coasters by posting in this thread.


Discussions about individual rides and parks should continue in the appropriate discussion thread through the links in this thread.


Rumors will not be included. We also don't plan to list every random out of the way upcoming attraction, so outside of major announcements this is limited to parks TPR has covered (or will likely cover in the future) in the Park Index.

Phantasialand has not announced the opening year of F.L.Y., so 2018 is just an assumption at this point. It is a new ride system, just like Chiapas was. With Chiapas, they announced an opening date and they did not make that date. Therefore, it is very likely they will not announce an opening date until the testing goes well, and then they will carefully announce an opening date, or at least an opening year.
