    Think I'll add a Toverland grid onto my list of pointless things I need in my life.

    From ToverlandFansite on Twitter. Lifthill continues to rise. And the tower/lighthouse on the station building is covered in scaffolding, presumably for theming.

    I reckon Port Laguna will be finished, but I'm not too sure about Fenix... there have been some very quick turnarounds in coaster history, so it's highly plausible that Fenix could be ready for 7th July with some time to spare.

    I'd be surprised if Fenix wasn't ready for the 7th tbh - B&Ms seem to always fly up. Whether Avalon is complete and up to the standard Toverland want it to be (and how it should be) is a different matter. Agree that the new entrance should be ready in time though.

    That's me be optimistic though so I can get the new cred. :p

    ^Oh yeah Fenix without a doubt will be completed. I'm just concerned about the progress of all the landscaping, pathways, theming and the boat ride with a dark ride section. But the park are seemingly confident they'll get it all finished in time, so hopefully it will be fine.

    The top has been completely installed, and the valley of the first drop has also been installed:-

    Looking great, the very long pull out would suggest it will be quite gentle overall but that's not a bad thing for this park!

    ^ No doubt, but the first element is also a fairly low airtime hill, which makes the pull out look it does.

    It's in Dutch but it's a tour through the whole area of Avalon & Port Laguna with sneak peaks of the inside of the station building etc.



    A short vid made by Toverland about reaching the highest part of Fēnix.



    Nice view of the progress on the Avalon site.

    Airtime or no airtime?

    It'll probably be like Flug - mild airtime, but nothing outstanding.

    Yeah. Just like Flug, the restraints will probably kill any trace of possible airtime anyway :(

    The first drop is 40m and this first hill is 15m. So I think it will definitely be noticeable.

    It's not necessarily about the height difference, it's about how long the hill is drawn out. You could have a 400ft height difference but if the hill is a mile long, you wouldn't feel anything.
