Photo TR: Phantasialand 04-06-2007

Postby Peejay » Sat Apr 07, 2007 3:31 pm

Since it’s the Easter weekend, we got a couple of days off work, there was nothing better to do and the weather was nice, we decided to take a spontaneous trip to Phantasialand yesterday. For a holiday and good weather the park wasn’t too crowded. The longest we had to wait in line was about half an hour for Black Mamba. So that was quite alright.
The rides we managed to go on were all pretty good, except for Temple of the Nighthawk. I think I’ve found my most boring ride ever, really pointless.
So here are some photos. I hope you guys like them.

A really nice day starts.

Future entrance of Talocan. A big dragon head has wrecked it a little bit already.

Talocan advertising. I hope the fire effects work properly after opening. I don't wanna leave the ride without eyebrows.

Theming in progress.

Since everything inside the park was still closed we decided to have a little breakfast first.

We called it the Brokeback incident...

Chinatown and Hotel Ling Bao. Very nice.

Colorado Adventure - The Michael Jackson Thrill Ride.
IMG_0831.JPG
I must admit - best Vekoma ride I know.
IMG_0839_1.JPG
This is River Quest. A river raft ride with a few surprises.
IMG_0841.JPG
...and a River Quest boat.
IMG_0842.JPG
There was some bull riding going on, too.
IMG_0844.JPG
Pirates in 4-D. If I recognized him correctly Leslie Nielsen starred in it.
IMG_0845.JPG
4-D-madness. Look, I've two heads on my shoulders. Just ignore the scary tongue man on the right. I like my left shoulder much better, too.
IMG_0848.JPG
The entrance to Wuze Town - home of the Winjas.

The Tittle Tattle Tree in Wuze Town.

A blurry Winja in action. I liked Winja's Fear a little bit better than Winja's Force.

Now that's what I call a stoned guy...
IMG_0859.JPG
That was a show called Living Nature. Pretty much a weird dressed lady standing there and spilling water all over the place...
IMG_0860.JPG
A snail riding a duck??? I don't get it...

Little Epcot.

Mystery Castle - home of an intamin drop ride.

Vertical loop goodness.

Thanks for the pics. This park is definitely on my to do list.

Is David Hasselhoff still big in Germany? Maybe Phantasialand could have a "David Hasselhoff Thrill Ride" next. That would be much cooler (and less creepy) than a Jacko ride.

I Love Eli Manning!

Why is it called the Michael Jackson Thrill Ride: Colorado Adventure anyway? What do MJ and Colorado have in common?

And Black Mamba is still looking good, as usual...

Good TR!

Great TR, there were some really impressive shots of Black Mamba.

He officially opened it. ;)

The ride was originally called Colorado Adventure but they changed it to Colorado Adventure: The Michael Jackson Thrill Ride about a month after it opened.

Mystery Castle was such a weird ride, I couldn't understand it. It was fun though, I went here this past summer and I had a good time. Have to return though, missed the Temple credit, got the others. :Pr

No, I don't think so. However, I'm not a big fan of his music. I haven't heard anything about him in years over here. But this is funny, on vacation last year in L. A., a tour guide asked me the excact same question. I guess nowadays you would find just older women in his audience.

A K.I.T.T. ride would be cool though. Although, I think you could attract a lot more people with a Baywatch-themed ride :lolr:

I agree with Wishmaster. The only thing I found was, that Michael Jackson inaugurated the ride in 1996. So I guess that's the only thing he has in common with Colorado Adventure.



Thanks for the comments. I'm glad you guys liked the pics.

That park looks amazing. Does Black Mamba have SRQ or a fast past thing?

Great pictures. Black Mamba looks amazing and the River Rapids look awesome. I want to ride them as much as I want to ride Black Mamba.
