    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster

    Looking at that terrace I'd guess its outdoor seating for the hotel Bar. Location wise at the bottom of the alley between hotel tower blocks 2 + 4 with F.L.Y. track coming out of both launches passing overhead. Plus brightening it up a bit there appears to a bar counter shaped thing in behind...

    Walibi Belgium | Unknown | Intamin Mega Coaster

    I would think they are objecting to that Instagram account more on the grounds of how he was coming across as an official source/authority on the project and even has a link to merch. Trying to build a social media brand and following from their project; rather than like most other people who...

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster

    Well normally you start in the run up to opening, years before would be pointless and potentially deter visitors and take away from other attractions like last year's Crazy Bats. Hence why the marketing was kick started with the teaser trailer and Rookburgh Gazette in the Winter season, and as...

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster

    A member of PhantaFriends.de today spotted Robert Löffelhardt, the park owner, taking a group into Rookburgh via the Berlin street gateway. Also PhantaFriends' PHLMarcus chipped into a discussion about the gantry/raised walkway in/along the back wall behind Maus au Chocolat. "I've already...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Never have truer words been spoken. Anyone who needs this pointing out to them clearly hasn't been paying attention to his career.

    Europa Park | Piraten in Batavia Rebuild | 2020

    Just got off my first ride on it and it was damn good. Loved it, a lot to take in though need more rides to form a proper opinion but very atmospheric and well done. Feels modern and classic at the same time. Great use of media and effects. Highly recommend a visit to try it out. First onride...

    Europa Park | Piraten in Batavia Rebuild | 2020

    Tomorrow's the day Europa Park will finally be whole again! Press event in the morning and then the ride will open in the afternoon. TÜV (health and safety) certified the ride today. Ahead of the expected crowds an extension queue with social distance markers which loops around through 4...

    Wodan vs Troy

    Both are great coasters. Troy has a nice long ride time while Wodan perhaps feels a little short and ends with still a great deal of speed (although they literally had no more space so its understandable). Its a tough call however I'd say I prefer Wodan. The drop is better, its faster, more...

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster

    He didn't question him as a source. Simply said its a shame its him considering the awful things that have come to light recently. Nevertheless this thread should stick to balloons, walls, neverending circular conversations speculating at opening dates and occasionally F.L.Y. itself. On...

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster

    Found a screenshot which I believe from the watermark is from a TPW video which gives a nice close up look on the Zeppelin with its steampunk undercarriage sitting inbetween the steel towers. Here it is also directly above the entrance to Rookburgh from the Fantasy area.

    Next European Park to get a B&M

    Nope. The next EP coaster will be from Mack. Whether they attempt a wing coaster who knows, but B&M certainly won't be popping up. Lisberg seems a good potential option if they do place a hyper along the side of their expansion as suggested. Although I would say a thought of Intamin or Mack...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    It's temporarily running without VR for now by choice of the park (whether risk, cleaning costs, extra staff costs, better utilising disinfectant supplies or for a higher capacity to avoid the big queues it was attracting last year). Europa Park are still using VR but then they do have more...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    As someone with anxiety myself I find people not wearing masks, the fear this awful situation and suffering may long continue far worse and extremely anxiety inducing than wearing a mask which is really not that bad and not so inconvenient. Staff and public alike in plenty of other countries...
