Thanks! The ride is very photogenic, so that really helped.

Exactly, it is very impressive! 15 years ago, who would have ever thought that we would see a GCI and a B&M at this park?

I had no clue Fenix was going to look so awesome! For some reason I just pictured the ride going in a big, empty field. The interaction with the water and near-misses look great. Plus that dive drop looks really unique with the turn before it.


Thank you!

Fēnix really does look amazing. Since the whole area is designed around the ride, it makes it look even better. The turn before the dive drop is indeed very unique, and it provides some great views from the park and the surrounding area.

Toverland's growth over the years is astounding... I remember watching TPR videos from their earlier visits where the moto coaster and in the indoor FEC were the major experiences and now look at the park's lineup! I also really appreciate the effort that went into establishing a more formal entrance experience.

Toverland is an excellent example of how a park should develop these days. I remember going there in its opening year (2001) as a small kid. It was just one indoor hall with mostly playgrounds, some family rides and a coaster. Literally nobody would have ever thought that 17 years later, Toverland would be one of the best theme parks in Europe. The new entrance area is like the park's final step to a full size theme park.

Toverland new sections look great! I've always enjoyed this park, but it's been a long time since my last visit. Thanks for the report.

You're welcome.

You just have to visit Toverland again, especially if it has been a long time. The park has changed so much! I am sure you will enjoy it even more now.

^Thanks!

Port Laguna and Avalon are gorgeous. They both have so many details. I walked around both areas multiple times, and everytime I still discovered something new.

TOTAL WOW...10 short years later (seems forever ago) since my only visit with TPR and I hardly recognize you, Toverland. Stunning developments and photos. This is absolutely amazing looking and I would love to revisit one day. Thank you for sharing!
