If you get a chance to visit Germany be sure to check out the Talocan ride at Phantasialand is a theme park in Brühl, North Rhine-Westphalia!
Phantasialand has so many fantastic rides but we think the Talocan is enough to make anyone think twice so after watching the video ask yourself are you brave enough?
Visit Germany to see Phantasialand which is a theme park in Brühl, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany that attracts approximately 1.75 million visitors annually. The park was opened in 1967 by Gottlieb Löffelhardt and Richard Schmidt. Although starting as a family-oriented park, Phantasialand has also added thrill rides, especially during recent years. Furthermore, following the example of Europa-Park, they have decided to attract business customers beside the regular ones, calling it “Business der neuen Dimension” (“business of a new dimension”).
Among the park’s thrill rides is a themed Mine Train roller coaster called Colorado Adventure, which runs among some mountains in the park’s Wild West section and was opened by Michael Jackson.
In 2001 a blaze took place that destroyed two roller coasters, a theatre and parts of the Westernstadt. It was the result of a cable fire in the Grand-Canyon-Bahn which was caused by faulty wiring. The blaze caused a material damage of about 38 million Deutsche Mark (~ 15 mio. USD) and 70 people were slightly injured. Phantasialand reopened the park about two weeks later and invested about 2 mio. Euro in fire safety, equipping every building with sprinkler systems.
The Phantasialand is also home to “Mystery Castle”, an indoor Ride Trade/Intamin Bungee Drop featuring a walk through a haunted castle. Next to the castle is “River Quest”, a rapid river ride which features a lift, built by Hafema in 2002. It replaced the attractions which were destroyed by the fire one year before.
In 2002 Winja’s Fear and Force, two indoor spinning coasters built by Maurer Söhne, were built along with a new area called Wuze Town.
New for the season 2006 was an African-themed B&M inverted roller coaster called Black Mamba.
