Hi all,

Drove to Bruhl yesterday for our annual visit to Phantasialand.
We wanted to see the winterdecorations (first time ever for us in the park in winter) but our main reason of course was to ride Taron and see the Klugheim area after missing it when we visited the park last April.
The park looked amazing, especially after dark when the lights are turned on. Klugheim is very impressive with great theming. Crowds were ok with nothing more than a 10 min. wait, with the exception of Maus (25 min.) and Taron (between 30-40 min.).
Did all the usual rides (Black Mamba, Winja's, Mystery castle, Raik, Maus) before going to the main dish of the day:Taron.

We rode a couple of the 'main' Intamin acceleratercoasters in the past (Maverick, Ispeed, Cheetah Hunt) so we have a nice list to compare Taron with.
In total we did 4 rides on it: twice during daytime and twice in the dark, both of those with front seat.

We both agreed (me and my wife), especially after the 2 rides in the dark, that Taron is far better compared with Ispeed and Cheetah hunt and is for us on the same level with Maverick, maybe even a little better.
The 2 rides during daytime were fantastic but when it's dark and you have front seats.........wow! Awesome ride!
Phantasialand definitely has a winner with Klugheim and Taron.

Sorry, no pictures. It was too cold to hold a camera :)

That fits perfectly. Just came home from Phantasialand and I experienced Taron in the dark for the first time today. What an absolutely outstanding experience that was! Way better than at daytime; the speed and the atmosphere is NUTS! Definetely my new number one after these nightrides :airtime:

If you love theme parks at night, Germany isn't exactly the best place to be, as most parks close before sunset. Luckily Phantasialands opens in winter for the so called "Wintertraum" (winter dream) and stays open until 8pm. With the sun setting at around 5pm you have plenty opportunities to enjoy Taron and the Klugheim area lit up at night. And to take a ride on Taron in the dark, if you do not mind riding at 25°F. And if you get too cold, you can head for one of the hot spiced wine stalls. Because if it comes to drinking alcohol in public, Germany is exactly the best place to be.
