Starting our day @Phantasialand with some random characters!

Image
Dan says this chair swings is NOT an "acceptable amount of wetness!" :)

Image
Image
Image
Image
Yes!!! Maus au Chocolat is one of my favorite dark rides ever!

Image
Image
Image
Image
The ride is basically Toy Story Mania but MUCH better! More mix of real sets and media!

Image
Image
Image
Black Mamba quite possibly may be the best themed B&M invert ever!

Image
First drop of Black Mamba!

Image
Image
Image
The area with Chiapas is new from our last visit to @Phantasialand and the new ride looks amazing!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Winjas is one of those coasters that is impossible to describe but you just HAVE to experience!

Image
The theming around the new Chiapas area is just insane! And the ride was awesome too!

Image
Image
Image
Image
OMG! Talocan is just nuts! Best Top Spin ride ever made!



Image
Image
Image
Temple of the Night Hawk was once again "Temple of the No Hawk!" lol

Image
Image
Image
Yes, hi... This is some of the best park ice cream we've ever had!

Image
Image
Image
The fresh crepes were insanely good and served to us hotter than the sun! Amazing!

Image
Image
Just some more of the awesome themed areas of @Phantasialand!



Image
We are on a quest to find as many dragons as possible @Phantasialand!



Image
That's not just a giant penis, that's one hell of a cool indoor drop tower!

Image
Image
The ice cream was so good we came back for more!

Image
Image
Image
Image
We had to go back for more Maus au Chocolat! Such a great ride! Kristen's favorite!

Image
I'm not exactly sure what these dudes are... But here's a picture! lol



Image
Image
Image
Image
A few more rides on Maus au Chocolat to finish off our day!

Image
What a great day @Phantasialand! We already have plans to make a return trip as soon as possible!

Image
Goodnight @Phantasialand! Here is the current view from our hotel room balcony!

Hmmm.

Erdbeer ice cream. Sounds intriguing. :wink:

EDIT: translation = Strawberry? Huh.

Great TR from the park, Robb and everybody!

LOVE Phantasialand! Probably my favorite theme park in Europe besides Europa Park. The level of detail they put in every corner of the park is stunning + the fact that it's a family-owned business makes it just that more likeable. How's hotel Matamba? I've only stayed at the Ling Bao so far (which I really like because of it's bars).
You gotta enjoy that first drop, you know.

Mantamba is GREAT! It's really on par (maybe even slightly better since it's newer) than Ling Bao but both are amazing. Sadly, the Dragon Bar was closed during this visit. :(

Thanks for the heads up, room booked for late July. Shame about Dragon Bar...hope you're returning soon, drinks are on me then.
This is definitely one of my favorite TRs I've followed!

I've been reading this TR and all the footage from these parks is great! The photos of Phantasialand really impressed me, and I must say, nothing like a good rapids ride to get everyone giggling at their friends getting soaked! Sounded like you guys reacted the same way I do to those rides, but that one just looks way more fun and impressive than any of the ones I've been on!
