Some new pictures from Looopings of the site. Showing that the underground station has now been enclosed, the new track and supports erected (extending the layout parts built last year) and the underground tunnels on the right house the launch (left tunnel) and brake run (right).

New massive 20m tall theming towers along the side of Wuze Town.

Something is being built/refitted next to the entrance for Hollywood Tour. Saw a reasonable number of what didn't look like construction staff all standing around inspecting things, plus a mini digger at the top end working. No idea what's going on, but I did notice it caught the attention of the local enthusiasts with their cameras. So I stood next to them and took a photo too. :P

Edit: From what I can tell this is something to do with the entrance for Fantissima being moved to a more prominent street side location. There were a lot of vans here the next day that looked like they were involved in signage.

The crane at F.L.Y. has been in action nearly all day, but everything seems very hidden, unless I didn't find the vantage point to see into the area. You can just see the top of what's probably a zero-g roll and another segment from the first lift hill of Colorado Adventure.

Surprised that this hasn't been posted here already...

Are you ready for the latest news coming from Rookburgh that will launch the meaning of an “overall experience” into a new dimension? There awaits an enigmatic interplay between a themed world with a steampunk flair, the worldwide unique roller coaster F.L.Y. and …

Hotel Charles Lindbergh!




This is bonkers- the fact that they'll be cramming in a hotel and a coaster in this tiny space will be great, can't wait to hear more.

Looking like a capsule hotel isn’t it? Which is great, because I think PL’s hotels are already reasonable, especially with the annual pass discount, presumably a capsule hotel will be cheaper still.

RCDB have changed the estimated opening date for FLY to 2020. Whilst there has been nothing official from the park, it is looking less and less likely that FLY and the surrounding area will be ready for 2019. Phantasialand do tend to work to their own timeline and don't commit to an opening date until they are 100% sure they can open it (thy ony confirmed the opening of Taron and Raik 8 weeks before they opened), so it wouldn't be a surprise if they do take a little longer than we first expected.

4 years between major additions seems reasonable anyway. Maybe there’s hope fior Wintertraum?

Hello, it looks like the Phantasialand website is having some issues on the booking site at the moment. Even for single tickets there is a warning that email confirmations aren't being sent.

There is ticketing at the entrance, however the entrance way is fairly small - its pretty much just a pavement next to the road. So in June I guess there would be a chance of a delay there.

It may be worth either giving it a couple of weeks and then seeing if it's fixed, or contacting Phantasialand via email. They typically come back fairly quickly and speak English. You may find that you can purchase tickets via bank transfer - which as dodgy as it may sound, is a way that Phantasialand and partially Germany as whole operates.

Hope you enjoy your trip, Phantasialand is one of the best theme parks in Europe in my opinion. :)

There was a deal last spring where you would get a second ticket free if you registered it on the day. The offer is returning this spring so there's a chance it'll also make an appearance this summer :)

Thank you, I’ll try waiting a while and see if the website gets fixed and if not I’ll email them. Thank you again! Looking forward to the trip

So errr... Word on the street is that F.L.Y has had its final track piece installed.. like last month.. apparently 2 supports still wait in the car park as work on the hotel is needed first before adding the final pieces..

Anyone heard anything recently? Or new photos or news?

Yep, I think the last piece was actually installed on 25th April. By far the best place to find regular(ish) English language updates, photos and videos, etc., is the F.L.Y. / Rookburgh topic on Coasterforce.

It seems we finally have marketing for Rookburgh and Fly! This is making optimistic for some kind of opening in 2020.

I am so excited for this. Having seen this ride being constructed for the last 2 years, I cannot wait to see this new ride and ride area when it's completed.

If Klugheim is anything to go by, we are in for a treat!

Fantastic theming. :)

Building near misses. :D

Flying coaster. :cry:

Maybe I'll find this style more comfortable than B&M flyers, but otherwise hotel ERT will be a waste for me on this one. :(
