Damn, that banking on the lower track on the picture looks sick. I really wonder about the speeds it will travel through that.

It's nice to see the full plot in aerial form. Still a little difficult to make sense of the layout since it goes indoors so much. But goshdayumfuck it looks crazy in the best way. I've said it once, I've said it thrice, Phantasialand is on some next level...

Looks awesome!

Really reminds me of Taron in its layout. Really amazing what Phantasialand does with its space.

Just imagine being in the hotel watching out of a window and a train flies by because the track is almost built into the hotel

Almost? You haven't been following this construction, have you? ;)

The rooms for the hotel have now started to go into place, as well as a brand new steel structure in front of the first overbank:

There's also this pretty good NL2 recreation from Tobi of Phantafriends which shows the newly installed bits in more detail:

What even is that cutback/outerbank/whatever. It looks so screwed up and I love it.

The facade infront of F.L.Y.'s overbank has now been fully installed:

Also, this thing has recently appeared and installed within the area:

But probably the most exciting piece of news lately is that testing has finally begun (Skip to 1:30):

Very unlikely there'll be any POVs as all belongings have to go in a locker then you walk through a metal detector. We'll only get a POV if Phantasialand themselves do an official one or they host a media event.

This looks stunning. It will never stop amazing me just how much Phantasialand manage to squeeze into such small spaces and still make it entirely coherent.

Even though there are apparently lockers and metal detectors before you're allowed to ride. Somehow someone still managed to shoot an onride:

After the sensor goes off they do a body check and let you through if they don't find anything. My guess is that they hid the camera very well!

Rode it twice. Wore pants and shoes with a lot of metal on them so the sensor went off. Both times they asked me if I had anything on me. I said no and they just let me go on.

Not so hard to take a camera with you I'd say.
