Hi there!

Today was Mother´s day and I invited my mom to a Jamboree-Brunch at the Matamba Hotel Restaurant "Zambesi" at Phantasialand.

You pay 33,50€ for a All-You-Can Eat Brunch between 12am-3pm and get free entry into the park after the brunch and you don´t have to pay the parking lot. We enjoyed our Brunch and the great weather, but now I´m very tired and go to bed soon, because I´m looking forward to go to work early in the morning :?r

I know I should made pictures of the great food, but I couldn´t resist and it´s gone straight into my stomach. Sorry for no pictures ;)

I don´t plan a Photo TR, but want to get you updated about the progress at the park. MAUS AU CHOCOLAT isn´t opened yet, but let´s have a look at the few pictures I made:

The great Hotel Matamba

You have a nice view from the Hotel garden into the "Deep in Afrika" area...

Yeah baby, do it!

There is the new wave swinger "Wellenflug"

They built up a tribune and a wall as soundtrap in the Old Berlin Place area and made a new passage into the Western / Mexico area.

The "Maus au Chocolat" building is still closed.

11.jpg
But the "Eiscafe" looks great, sad I can´t eat more after this huge Jamboree Brunch ;-)

Wuze Town

Because I missed it in my Photo TR, here they´re...

Winjas Fear and Force...

15.jpg
upps, sorry... only one of them was opened today (I think it was FORCE).

16.jpg

17.jpg
That´s the passage I talked about before. You get into the area where the Churro Snacks and the Casa Magnetica are located.

18.jpg
The Mexican Entrance section is replaced by a interesting looking Mexican Restaurant.

19.jpg
Mystery Castle and River Quest

20.jpg
Hey here is missing a mountain!

21.jpg

22.jpg

24.jpg
They needed place for the new Kiddie attraction... a turning Frog Hopper called "TIKAL"

25.jpg
There are two of them.

And now a last ride on Black Mamba

This are really sad news.

Just to give additional informations - missing in this article:

The man was in the cautious risk group of this attractions and had high blood pressure and diabetes (which form wasn´t mentioned):
RTL aktuell (German)
... Uwe W. said to have suffered from high blood pressure and severe diabetes, which has apparently attacked his heart. With his medical history, Uwe W. belongs to the risk group, carried signs warning against such rides in Phantasialand explicitly. To elucidate a death, the prosecutor now investigating Cologne...

Thanks for the update. It's tough to tell from the pics, have they ripped out part of the flumes?

Look like they did. I have no idea what used to be in that large open area, but the location where the digger is in used to be a turn for the flume (well for both of them)

Don't remember reading anything final/specific about what is being done.
Looks like Casa magnetica and the Churros place have been torn down as well...

Only thing i've found was on screamscape that something new is planned for that area (they basically are taking out all of Mexico) and most likely to open in 2013
