Phantasialand Discussion Thread

Mon Mar 28, 2005 11:04 am

Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Phantasialand, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

So it seems as if the rumors are confirmed and the Phantasialand gets a new B&M Inverter for 2006. They already worked on the space for about three months and now there is this article that confirms the rumors. It´s only in german but it says that this is the second B&M coaster in Germany and a little bit about the history of coasters in Germany and the history of B&M.

I´m so excited of this new coaster, I never rode any B&Ms and Phantasialand are only 50 minutes from where I live.
When there are new news, I will tell you and if there are any questions, I will try to help you.

It's just a matter of time before B&M starts getting a lot more orders in Europe. I could see Parc Asterix getting the next B&M!

Yeps, looks good for Phantasialand! (Now let's hope the neighbours stop complaining...).

Hey roeterich,
this are good news. I think a B&M coaster is a good expansion for the Phantasialand.
Have so much fun on your tomorrow Heide Park trip. The Heide Park is my favorite ThemePark in North-Germany.

Another reason for me to go to Germany in 2006 :wink:

Since Phantasialand can not build very high rides without having issues with the neighbourhood, the new coaster will be a la Nemesis, with lot of terrain, trenches and tunnels.

Since my favorite Looping coasters in Europe are Katun in Mirabilandia (which belongs to the same family than Phantasialand) and Nemesis, I'm looking forward to this coaster quite a lot !!!

Mirabilandia & Phantasialand owned by the same group - Well I never knew that :o
Both parks are well looked after & well run, so I guess the clues were there.
Phantasialand does need a big coaster like a B&M Inverted to make the park almost complete. I think I'm right in saying it will be the first B&M inverted & only the second B&M in Germany :!:
It will sure beat the SLC's in Germany :)

I hope it will be the first B&M without trim brakes in Germany too :lol:

On the Dutch en German boards we were discussing it for over half a year, but it's official now. Today, Phantasialand announced there 5-loop inverted B&M for the 2006 season! 8)

The ride will feature a restaurant fly-trough, looping, interlocking corkscrew and two toher inversions (Rumoured to be a zero G roll and immelmanthingy). It is also rumoured that the ride will have a spectacular ending, a 5G helix!

Sounds like fun! I've never heard of an inverted coaster having a fly through.
