I imagine it will start at the station to capture the full experience... Taron's started in the station and although that doesn't have an exciting dark ride section before the launch... I can't work out what I'm trying to say but I imagine they will start it in the stationWhat's the bet they begin the POV at the first launch though, just to spite us.
I'd say we give it a couple more days, as there's evidently a lot of activity in here and people might not want to scroll to find the thread. We usually wait a little while for the initial opening hype to die down.Wait...does this mean you guys finally get to unsticky this thread? Or do you have to wait for an official date?
I’ll try tomorrow, but the only day I can do is next Thursday otherwise not until November.Keep trying!!! It was doing that to me too! Although I think they’re closed now (tel lines) so maybe tomorrow?
Wintertraum is happening but only indoor shows and no fireworks/tiempo De fuego- opening times 11am to 8pm as usual.Wintertraum will take place, but nobody knows in which form
What about the dark ride section?Just been on it.
I am too lazy for a full review, but I will give you a quick one: The queue offers some amazing looks, but other places looks like the park forgot to theme them. Lots of blank sheets of metal and little theming. As long as you see the area, it's fine. The queue goes pretty much arround the area and as long as you can look to the ride it's fine. The view from the opposite site of the Hotel is really amazing.
The area features lots of steam, even the sewers spit out Steam, and the area is always "dirty". Some places look very bare as I feared, but some views are also amazing. Pretty much as I expected.
You'll have to empty your pockets before boarding. You'll receive a wristband which allows you to open a free locker to store your belongings. They use Metal detectors to make sure you have nothing with you when entering the station. The station has Subway station vibes, and nice lighting with just a tiny bit of fog in the air.
The twisting into flying position is so satisfying, and the whole ride is quite smooth. Not "you don't feel anything" smooth, but just slight vibrations which do not disturb the feeling of flying. Some twists are quite intense on the ends of the train, it has some nice Airtime pops, the most intense one being the exit of Launch 2 in the front. You keep flying over, under and through something which really feels great. It's intensity is not too high, but it can pull suprisingly strong in places.
Overall, I'd consider it a very good Rollercoaster and a good addition to the park. Of my 2 flyers I've done so far, this one is my favourite.
Edit: Is this the best ride at the park? I don't want to judge. I have ridden Taron way over 1000 times and it is nothing special for me. FLY on the other hand is still new and refreshing, so I am pretty biased. I am glad that it has it's intense moments, but as a Thrillseeker I wish for some more intensity in places. But considering Taron was more aimed for Thrillseekers, I do not blame the park at all for keeping FLY more family friendly. It still has the same height requirement as Taron, this should give you a hint of what to expect.
If someone talks about the dark ride section, please use the spoiler feature. I'm going Tuesday and really don't want to know anything about this section of the ride. I can imagine a lot of other people in the thread feel the same.What about the dark ride section?

Any music? Or is it just the sound of disappointed moans?It's there, but nothing special. The tunnel is quite bare (not ugly though) and features some of those fans with video projection. Looks quite nice and shows basicly some adds for some "products" sold in Rookburgh. Right before the launch, they have a big screen with some "outside" footage. The projection quality is decent, but you realize it is a screen. Still, it is a nice touch.
