Chiapas is coming!


Chiapas
Amazing theming of the area
Phantasialand caught anyone by surprise when demolishing its two log flumes at the end of last year's summer season. It was obvious that the German themepark was planning something very impressive for this large area, and most fans were making a guess about the replacement attraction for the closed "Stonewash Creek" and "Wildwash Creek". But the park didn't give any information about its plans.

Surprisingly Phantasialand set up a model of next year's new ride on Friday. The attraction named "Chiapas" is based on the Mexican federal state of the same name which was crossed by Spanish conqueror Hernan Cortes in the 16th century. It is quite clear that the attraction will be a new water ride with indoor sections and at least two drops, the last one reminding of "Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls" at Universal Studios Orlando. Additionally the whole area will completely be themed with a lake, waterfalls, mountain masses and a temple ruin.

The mine train "Colorado Adventure" seems to get an upgrade – at least the model indicates a partially retheming of the rollercoaster. The Tula Temple will be demolished, and the whole area will get an extensive terraforming. One may be curious how all of these things will look when the ride is going to open next year – but it is supposed to be one of the top new attractions in 2013 when looking at the park's realisation of former models, especially because the theming of the indoor section leaves much room for new speculations.
