I admittedly didn't have any real expectation for Taron. Like, I knew it would be great fun and such reading reviews, but didn't really let the hype build up or anything in my mind.
Watching POV's I always just thought "It looks fun!" but the POV's never did the ride justice. By the time we hit the brake run after our first ride I was literally speechless. I personally think aside from front for visuals, the back is where it's at on this one. The airtime and out of control sensations are amplified for sure. In a nutshell, it's just a kick ass ride.
Enjoy your trip next year. Just got back from our first trip to Germany/Netherlands and we are already planning on going back. Phantasialand is incredible, we look forward to going there next time once the new area and coaster open up. It will really make the park feel more complete in terms of size/attractions.I hope you are also going to other parks in the area too, I assume?

Taron blows Maverick out of the water. Like, obviously Maverick is amazing.... But Taron just takes it to an entirely new level. The amount the track is twisted and crosses over its self so many times... Half the time you literally have no idea what’s coming next. I’ll agree with others POV’s do NOT do this ride justice. I went into it thinking “Coaster looks awesome, I’m sure it will be a decent ride.” But daumn!!!! I had no idea I would be as blown away as I was.
I have to chime in to toss my vote to team Maverick. Taron's visuals are amazing and the second launch is as good as Maverick's launch, but it doesn't have the intensity, airtime, or diverse layout of Maverick.
Taron is still a great ride, but I'll take Maverick.
