It’s the last day of 2017 which is a good moment to look back at the past year. What meant 2017 for me as a theme park enthusiast?! Which parks and roller coasters excited us? Which disappointed us? Which new parks did we explore? Let’s look back at what 2017 brought us. 2017 is of […]
If you’d ask any non-Swedish or non-Scandinavian theme park enthusiast before April 2014 if they were planning a visit to Kolmarden, they’d look at you strange. Kolmarden?! That name was not commonly known in the community of theme park fans. But the announcement of a new Rocky Mountain Construction roller coaster placed the park at […]
Today Walibi Belgium announced their master plan for the future years. We already knew they were going to do that today, we didn’t expect anything special. Maybe a new family roller coaster as a replacement for the Coccinelle kiddy roller coaster or maybe something else on that place. Walibi kept mysterious about what they had […]
Poland is not the first country that comes to mind when planning a theme park trip. It is a big country, the ninth biggest of Europe, but only had 20 roller coasters to offer until 2014.

It is less than a year ago that Phantasialand gave us a Klugheim, a brand new theme zone containing two new roller coasters. Taron became the new crowd puller of the German theme park and is named one of the best roller coasters on the European continent. But Phantasialand wouldn’t be Phantasialand if they just did nothing. We already knew they had plans for the area were once the simulator Race for Atlantis was located. The simulator was broken down and now the park reopened again, it placed some very interesting signs near the construction site. Enough for the fans to start the rumors!
