https://www.phantasialand.de/en/current-information-to-the-opening/

We are currently working intensively on the reopening. We want you to have a park experience where fun and joy are in harmony with the protection to health. The safety of our guests and employees is always our highest prioroty.

It is importent to us that Phantasialand is a place of joy where everyone feels comfortable. We want you to be able to spend a carefree day with your family, on which you can leave the daily life behind and share happy experiences. Therefore we have decided to open the theme park to a limited number of guests until further notice. You therefor need an online ticket prior to your visit, which you must purchase in advance for a certain date. These day tickets are only available in our online-shop. First we will start with the ticket sale until the end of June.

In addition, we have developed regulations on distance and hygiene, which apply immediatly in Phantasialand.
Mutual respect makes the shared experience possible in this days and age. So let us take care of each other and experience fantastic things togeter in our lively themed worlds.

Further information will follow soon.


So, the only information made public so far is that Phantasialand, like everyone else, will be using day reservation tickets to limit their capacity. If you've already bought a ticket, you are allowed to change it to a specific day reservation.

Phantasialand released a multi-language rulebook today. Looks like all restaurants will be open, but there is no information yet which if any rides will be closed.

^ I just love that they say: "If you do not bring your own face mask, you can buy one at Phantasialand." and then immediately follow with a list of area's where you have to wear a mask and the first place on that list is: "Park Entrances." I don't know I just find it funny, granted maybe they sell some before the entrances but the way I read it was like: "Yes we sell them if you don't have any but you cannot come in the park without them."
On a serious note, seems like the same rules as here in the Netherlands except in the Netherlands the face masks aren't mandatory. I also read that F.L.Y. might indeed open in 2020, apparently the Parks Tik Tok account said that so take it with a huge grain of salt. If it does I really want to visit the park this year or else I don't know.

On restaurants: "For your safety, we document the contact details of one person at your table as well as the period of your stay and keep them for 4 weeks" - is this somthing all attractions/restaurants in Germany are doing? Or is it just Phantasialand?

I obviously understand it's for contact tracing, it just struck me as interesting because it's not something I've seen from any of the other parks.

It's a German law at the moment. It's set to be able to follow the infection chains.

Here's some drone footage of FLY. I am really excited about this ride as I have absolutely no expectations of what it will be like. This whole area looks really overwhelming, the walls make it look like they've forgotten to put the lid on an enclosed coaster.

^ It looks amazing from above! And it's going to be quite a thrilling ride with
so many 'close calls' with the surrounding walls and buildings.

That straight piece of track in the middle there. Might that be launch track?

Using this screenshot, I made a couple quick edits which should help all of you understand this confusing area.

Let's start with Rookburgh as a whole. This is all brand new:

rookburgh.jpg


This belongs to the hotel:

hotel_lindbergh.jpg


To give you a sense of scale:

rookburgh_surroundings.jpg



Now let's take a look at the coaster.

From what we know, there will be separate load and unload stations, and there's also a short lifthill. Oh, and in case you forgot, the seats on this ride can rotate. :lmao: You'll board the train seated upright like in a normal coaster, with the track behind your back. As the train starts to move, you'll basically be going sideways.

At the top of the lifthill, the seats rotate 90° to align you with the track. Fellow member MrRC made a NoLimits animation of this (link):

FLY_Programmed_Rotating_Test_v2_MrRC.gif


Here's where all of this is hidden away. The station is underground, the lifthill is enclosed:

Then you're launched into the first half of the ride. Notable elements:

- launch
- overbank
- zero-g roll
- fly under the railroad drawbridge
- fly through the balloon storage
- fly over the area in a large figure 8 shape

The second half starts with an underground launch, and is considerably more hidden. Notable elements:

- underground launch
- steep uphill
- overbank over the restaurant
- tight helix
- zero-g roll over the restaurant
