Anyway... no new land bought at the moment.
Yes, quite right Peet. I've moved the posts across to the latest thread I could find, but do let me know if there's another one.There's a topic for speculation about the park's future here, it's quite up-to-date and worth a read if you haven't done do already - probably best putting your questions/ideas in there ?
Ha oops I forgot to paste the link, had it on the clipboard and everything, glad you knew what I meant!Yes, quite right Peet. I've moved the posts across to the latest thread I could find, but do let me know if there's another one.
Is anyone able to confirm? If so what does this mean for the park realistically?Hello, I’ve found good news. The state of Brühl has just accepted an extension of 18.5 hectares ! This is the January 3, 2021 article translated by Google Translate.
Brühl liegt im Rhein-Erft-Kreis zwischen Köln und Bonn. Entdecken Sie Schloss Augustusburg, Schloss Falkenlust, das Max Ernst-Museum und das Phantasialand.md3jzorzemgb6x3gp427rifzqq-adwhj77lcyoafdy-www-bruehl-de.translate.goog
As far as I can work out, they’ve agreed the full triangle west of the park (between the motorway junction, Wakoboto and Matamba), as well as a piece of land east of the China Town car parks?If I'm understanding the translation, the council has agreed to the expansion and now they're going to sit down and work out where the park can expand? Or is there a development plan already agreed?

I’ve attached a low-resolution map from the link @siglaze put above, with the green highlighted areas the expansion I think? Edit - I’m getting a server error every time I try attach the file?
It continues to be unclear whether Phantasialand can expand as hoped. Talks have been going on between the theme park and Ministry of the Environment for years. The sticking is the forest areas required by Phantasialand that belong to the state.
There is still no decision whether the state will sell the forest. The talks are ongoing, it was said from all sides. The Bruhl CDU member of the state parliament, Gregor Golland, is involved in the negotiations. He assumes that there will still be a result within this legislative period, i.e. in the next two years. (Next elections are in May 2022)
Phantasialand wants to grow by almost 20 hectares in order to remain competitive. A water park and hotel are planned on the new site. The Hotel Charles Lindbergh, which is currently under construction, does not change anything about that, according to Phantasialand.
