I have faith in them to make it feel like the same experience - the queue line is actually quite dark and atmospheric, and I wouldn't be surprised if that carries on into the pre-lift section.
And some concept art:New: darkride scene Fēnix
“Last winter we added more experience to the new Avalon theme area,” says head designer Peter van Holsteijn. In Avalon, the famous wizard Merlin, together with his ally Fēnix, ensures that good magic dominates. However, the evil ice witch Morgana is lurking. “Anyone taking a ride in the spectacular roller coaster Fēnix will come into contact with Morgana and her ice-cold followers in the mysterious dark ride scene. Morgana has been transformed into an evil ice dragon and Fēnix has to brave her before being able to make a flight through Avalon. From now on, visitors starting at 132 cm can ride the impressive roller coaster.
