Alexander: Who’s ready for some themed-area nirvana?
Phantasialand in Brühl, Germany is famous for its detailed environs, top-notch entertainment, and unparalleled collection of roller coasters. In 2016, however, Phantasialand’s already stellar status pierced the stratosphere with the unveiling of their magnum opus: a basalt-laiden norse wonderland called “Klugheim.”
– Over the years, many of our images have popped up on other sites and forums, awesome that our coverage spreads, not so awesome that not everyone mentioned where they got the images from. We are totally fine with our audience using our images, BUT ONLY IF credit is given to californiacoasterkings.com. Thank you!
Originally built to co-anchor the park’s “Mystery” area (which is now mostly comprised of Klugheim), River Quest is a 7-story Hafema flume that contends for even the most seasoned enthusiast’s “favorite rapids ride” designation.
No detail is overlooked: area-specific and ride-specific music is provided by IMAscore. Authentically-crafted lumber, steel, and basalt make up the infrastructure. Heart-made leather goods and regional cuisine entice buyers. Even the foliage does an uncanny job of fitting the surroundings.
With all that said, Taron remains the clear star of Klugheim at the end of the day (literally – hotel guests can enjoy Extra Ride Time on Taron and other attractions at the conclusion of normal business operating hours).
Thank you, Phantasialand, for inviting us into your park and showing us your radiant Klugheim. It is an honor to cover your park and enjoy your unparalleled atmosphere. Discover more of Phantasialand’s unprecedented magic in our Full Phantasialand Report!
