^^Yeah. I didnt really notice it, but they are pretty far apart!

I wonder if it is going to be a Forceful B&M or a Forceless one.

Yes, its very near to the World Cup Stadium in Cologne, and the Schalke Arena in Gelsenkirchen isn't so far away from the park.

Wow the themeing looks amazing!! You'll see me in Germany next year! It kind of looks like a nemesis. Do you think the layout will be like Nemesis?

After looking at the pics on the World Cup site, I want to see both stadiums, but the Schalke Arena is slightly higher on the list because of the movable field. I saw pics of it in an architecture magazine and I think that it is such a cool idea. (Of course if I don't actually see the field move, then maybe its not such a bid deal)

Why couldn't they start construction a month earlier, then I could've seen track and stuff, not just holes when I was there!

I does look like it'll be a great ride, especially after looking at the concept art. With Phantasialand's theming being to a very high standard generally, I think we can expect good things for the Mamba. Only problem is the Phantasialand's queues are usually a bit on the big side too, and with River Quest hitting 1 hour on a normal wednesday in July this summer, I can see the queues being massive through a lot of the season.

If you want to see a great stadium you had to go to the Westfalenstadion in Dortmund. ;)

^ But its field doesn't move!!! :wink: Actually that picture looks cool. I love checking out the architecture of stadiums. I was really impressed with the atmosphere Parc de Princes in Paris gave to the game when I saw PSG play there. The huge concrete shell/roofs over the stands kept most of the sound in the stadium making it much louder. And making the Auxerre fans even cooler for singing the whole time.
