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
