More building site updates from Tobi's model on Phantafriends.
UPDATE 1.png
The building enclosing Raik's lifthills is almost finished. The wood has been darkened.
UPDATE 2.png
Right next to the new bridge that connects Klugheim to the China area they have built another narrower bridge. Not sure yet why.
UPDATE 3.png
Both bridges go on to the roof of Raik's station. Also steps from the roof going down into the station have been put in. I assume this might be the exit? Two concrete blocks are also on the roof no one seems to know what their purpose is yet.
UPDATE 4.png
Lifthills almost fully enclosed.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

Thank you for posting the pictures, and for the descriptions. Tobi's illustrations are really useful for deciphering what's going on and makes the layout of the area really clear and easy to understand and helps to fill in the gaps while we wait for new construction photos. He/she is really skilled!

Can I park my donkey here?

Looks awesome,

When are Germany's holiday breaks? You would think this would open shortly after, like American attractions?
i.e. finishing the rides right after the big crowds leave.

I might go try and visit in May, but won't be back in Germany for years. Europa Park or Phantasialand? Do I risk it and fly into the airport near Phantasialand?!

BAYSIDE STATION!!!

Phantasialand have posted on their website an article about Klugheim's theming made out of wood. In particular the carved dragons.

Interesting to note that the wood work shop has been set up in the remaining section of the old Silbermine dark ride hall.

Phantasialand have officially confirmed that Race for Atlantis, the simulator in the large yellow dome, is being removed. It was taken off the park map today.
The dome is currently being demolished.

Was never a fan. Good riddance!

Whoohoo! That was a ride trapped in the early 90s. I'm surprised they're completely removing the dome, though.

Yep. Seems to be totally going.
This large hole in the side doesn't seem to be fixable...

Most recent update on Phantafriends states that as of today half of the dome is gone.

Good bye!

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Ugh, thankfully! That dome was an eyesore, honestly. Next step, Temple of the Night Hawk/Hollywood Tour!
