And here's the smaller family coaster that is also there:
I am at the park, the area is stunning. How they were able to squeeze in an entire village and market square is mind blowing.Had lunch at the Tavern, wholesome food you usually do not get at themeparks(Schnitzel/Spätzle/Kaiserschmarrn)
On to the rides: The first part of Taron is really fun, the second part insane. That launch is nothing what I have ever experienced(Ok, my only comparison of multi launch coasters would only be Maverick and Cheetah that I experienced)
I sure lost some braincells on that second launch, it is crazy fast. The seats and restrain system are rather comfortable, These are basically floorless trains unless you are 7 ft tall, your feet will not touch the floor. So you are completely free which enhances the experience.
Everyone loved it. It is a unique coaster and it will make Phantasialand one of the best parks on earth in regards of theming,(As it was before)
Raik, the second coaster surprised me as I have never been on a Family Boomerang Coaster. I thought it would work like Deja Vu at MagicMountain back in the days aka you will be pulled up for your return trip, but nope, this was non stop action and in my opinion rather fast for a family coaster.
The entire area, including the food options and what not is stunning, there is no question about it. What Phantasialand did build here is something to see.
My pictures all suck, but I am staying at the resort, so I will scout some pictures later on the iternet and post(drinking beer all day in the sun does not help either)
I'm sure we'll see a real POV video sometime soon.
My first thought as well. The low camera angle means we can't see the environment and that seems like the coolest part of the whole thing.
Maybe someone should do one of those cool 360-degree videos I'm seeing on FB lately.
This website drives me crazy sometimes. I just posted pictures and it did not go thru. I will try it again although I want to go to the bar
Edit: Great video from ride on blog that shows the entire area, including the market place, tavern and what not. Including two on rides of Taron and Raik.
What Phantasialand did here is quite stunning. You have to understand that this is no Disney or Universal or any other big company. This is a family run business. I was just in awww all day yesterday.Last edited by Alexatucla, Friday, July 1, 2016 4:50 AM

^The theming looks great, and I'm an Intamin fan. Added to my bucket list.
The Park has a new TV Commercial out that shows off the new themed area very well(and the coaster of course) Btw, the food at the Tavern is incredible. I just go for the food now,lol
My home park.
I'm finally on semester break, but I'm waiting for school holidays to be over. Once that's done I absolutely cannot wait to check this thing out!! :)
Phantasialand really is a special place! The effort they put into all of their themeing is so incredible.
