Going for the first time on Sunday. Any hidden gems or tips? Only got one day so wanna try and get as much as done as possible.

Hard to tell with Covid restrictions how busy the park will be (and some things may have changed, so this might not be perfect), but...

 

-Taron will always have a queue. If you're not one of the first ones there, you may as well leave it for later (it warms up and rides a bit better later in the day anyways).

 

-If the weather is good, River Quest will have a very long queue. It has a bad throughput too. One to get done earlier in the day if possible. 

 

-It might be different with Covid, but the Fantasy area (where Winjas is) opens at 11 some days. So try and head over there for then.

 

-The Berlin rides (carousel, Maus au Chocolat and Wellenflug) usually open before 10am.

 

-As Crazy Bats has no VR, it will run really well. Likely won't have much of a queue.

 

-Colorado Adventure has a physically short queue line, so don't be alarmed if the queue looks long. On a good day, even if the queue is really external you can be on in under 30mins.

 

-If you're pressed for time, I wouldn't bother with Feng Ju Palace or Wakobato. The latter you should only really do if you want a relaxing ride to do and you've got the time. 

 

-Hollywood Tour (indoor boat ride) has been closed for a long period of time due to maintenance. So you don't need to bother trekking up the hill past the Crazy Bats entrance. 

 

-Don't miss out on Tikal! It's not exactly hidden, but the closest thing they have to a hidden gem imo.

 

-Ride Chiapas a bunch of times ;)

 

The park is open until 7pm so even if it is busy you should get on everything. Most queue lines close 15mins before park close, but when busy, the park sometimes close their queue lines earlier, but these are always advertised. The advertised queue times are usually pretty accurate, but sometimes a bit off with the likes of Taron and Black Mamba in my experience. 

 

Most of the park's food places are great, so you can't really go wrong there.

 

It's a small park with a lot of stairs and you will probably double back on yourself more than once throughout the day. Always worth looking at a map / the app to find your way round; it's pretty accurate.

Rookburgh news: Staff previews are happening next Monday. Staff are, of course, being explicitly told not to share anything online and will be searched for phones, etc. before entering the area.

 

Klugheim had staff previews around 3 weeks before opening, so we must be nearing an announcement or opening very very soon.

 

Some rumours are circulating that on the 14th we'll have more news.

*sends the Titanic "its been 84 years" meme

 

Fantastic news!!

 

A little bit of positive news in what has been a dark year for the industry (well, and the world in general ofcourse)

 

Looking forward to getting back out there next year if all goes well!!

Even though I had to cancel the stag do if they announce an opening for that weekend I might end up going anyway.

Definitely gutted that I didn't get to experience FLY. But its an excuse to go back next year.

For those who have no time to read my review. I really enjoyed this park, Taron and Black Mamba are both really good coasters. I do still prefer Europa and Cedar Point. Though Klugheim is a work of art, and I hope Rookburgh continues the trend of great theming.

Well. Cedar Point is simply untouchable though xD

 

Taron,Black Mamba and Chiapas are a line up that most other parks would die for!!

 

Glad to see you enjoyed the park!!
