This will be the new entrance area of Toverland: Port Laguna

180118adventure1.jpg

Toverland revealed today how their brand new entrance area will look like. The Dutch theme park will receive a new main entrance this summer, decorated as an idyllic harbor town with souvenir shops, catering, entertainment, a water playground and special interactive elements. It will be named Port Laguna.

"We immerse our visitors in Mediterranean spheres", explains a spokeswoman. "In Port Laguna it is always warm and colorful, even in gray and gloomy weather." When visitors have passed through the main entrance and access control, they are in the middle of a port area with azure water and an atmospheric boulevard: the Via Magia.

Several buildings will be located on Via Magia: souvenir shop Mundo Magica, eatery Mañana, toilets, souvenir shop Magistralis' Magic Store, games stalls and the 27 meter tall lighthouse Solaris. The entrance area also accommodates fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo and the guest service. A large terrace and water playground La Sirena complete the picture. Moreover, there is room for a large stage in the summer months.

"We were looking for a theme that is natural and adventurous". The designs seem to be inspired by Port of Entry, the entrance area of Universal's Islands of Adventure in Orlando, USA. Toverland came up with a background story about a beachcomber who, thanks to a message in a bottle with a magic spell, managed to obtain great riches.

The Magic Store of the Magistralis family is not just a souvenir shop. Before visitors enter the mysterious shop, they are welcomed by a magician for a special interactive show. In the shop itself, wands can be purchased that can activate various effects in Port Laguna. Toverland was inspired by the concept of The Wizarding World or Harry Potter.

"Port Laguna will be the heart of Toverland," says the spokeswoman. Visitors from the horseshoe-shaped area will soon be able to enter the various themed areas of the park. The opening will probably take place on July 7, 2018. On that date, the new themed area Avalon will open, with the wing coaster Fenix and the water attraction Merlin's Quest. The total investment amounts to 35 million euros.

I love that they even have a wand show included. It's like Europe's own little IoA. :lol:

That looks fantastic! It's crazy to think how far Toverland has come since they opened the doors in 2001. :)

This will be a big improvement for the park--much more inviting.

They already have (had?) a walkthrough attraction in which you were given an interactive wand and you could wander around a castle activating different effects. I am talking ca. 2009...

Yes, it is still there! It is called Toverhuis (Magic House).

Everything looks awesome, but I am still trying visualize how it all fits with the existing buildings, parking lots, etc.

Does anybody have a drawing or something that shows the new entrance, and everything beyond it? Overhead?
From the announcement videos first released, you get just a slight look at it all...then the videos end.

Thanks in advance if anybody has a shot like that. :smile:

EDIT: Already found some visuals of what it's supposed to turn out, like. :)

P.S. If they take that facade piece on the current front of the "box" and move it to the other end, where the doors
open to this new section (or the reverse) that would be a great start!

So move all this to the other end of the box, yes? No? Photo from TPR, thanks!

This has gone from I hope we can fit this in between Phantasialand and Efteling, to a must do on the day in between those

^ Yes, I was planning to go Walibi Holland on our next Amsterdam visit (2022). But now that I see all this expansion happening,
maybe going here would be a nice change. Not to mention riding TROY! again and again and again... :wink:
