Phantasialand, Bruhl

#1 of 18 in Theme Parks in North Rhine-Westphalia
Spend a day of adrenaline-pumping adventure at the famous Phantasialand. Opened as a family fun center in the 1960s, the park has transformed over the years to cater to the thrill-seeking clients with dozens of exciting rides. Ride through the Wild West on the Colorado Adventure rollercoaster and the River Quest rapid-river ride. Next, get spooked while walking through the haunted Mystery Castle. You'll find plenty of family-friendly attractions, restaurants, and accommodations, too. Try to arrive in the morning to avoid long lines and crowds.

  • Very beautiful themed park with various fun rides. It is not very big but just enough. We could spend the whole 10 hours we had. Some waiting lines were quite long, definitely the one of the big splas...  more »
  • Beautiful and well maintained park with one of the best roller coasters in the world (Taron) and the best water attraction of Europe (Chiapas). Especially the latest attractions are beautifully decorated and the park has a few nice shows. Food and drinks are OK, especially for an amusement park. The park also has some outdated attractions and in particular the 3-D film is really in need of replacement.

  • We have had a great day. Has enjoyed the hunt to find the drop-off to our 8 year old. There were enough attractions for your 1.3 m on offer, so no boredom came up! A very well run Park.

  • Last visited 10 years ago and just revisited and I must say that this remains one of my favourite theme parks. Lovely atmosphere with wonderful scenery with attention to every little detail, friendly and enthusiastic staff (all of which wear costumes to match the theme of the area and many speak English) and incredible shows - you forget you're watching in a theme park as the quality of the shows really wouldn't be out of place in Broadway and are well worth the admission in themselves. The rides are really good for thrill seekers and less adventurous/smaller visitors. On my visit (in June) I got a free ticket to come back again on another off peak day so essentially got two days for one! Thanks Phantasialand! My only complaints are not big - the park isn't big but the layout of the park is really confusing. I normally know my way around a park after a few hours but after two whole days I was still getting lost. Lots of the areas are connected by small bridges that aren't obvious where they go. The place could really use more signage. I also found the China Town car park was really narrow and quite hard to manoeuvre in.
  • What makes Phantasialand unique is its atmosphere. You don't just walk through a collection of attractions but truly enter a world of fantasy and imagination where everything fits, from the decorations and the music to the food and the costumes of the employees. A great experience for everyone!
  • The place is great, there are lots of fun rides, it takes one day just to walk around all the thematic districts. There is a serious problem, though - it is so crammed with people that it just killed the fun for us. Waiting 60 minutes for a 1-2 minute ride is ridiculous. Paying 15 EUR for a quick pass is a must if you want to enjoy the park, but then you really have to calculate that extra expense in. TLDR: the park is capitalism at its best.
  • One of the more popular amusement parks in Germany. Something for old and new! New rides are still being added as the park expands! Make sure to visit one of the hotels if you can. They have an amazing decor!
  • Great atmosphere with a lot of attention to detail. Waiting in the cue becomes an experience in itself in this amusement park. The rides are fun and will satisfy every adrenaline junky.
