Toverland, an amusement park in the Netherlands, will open its €11.5 million Avalon expansion on 1 July this year.
The park’s fantasy-themed Avalon area is growing to offer four new family-friendly attractions, as well as two new play areas and more interactive experiences.
Inspired by the legend of King Arthur, Avalon first opened in 2018 with Fénix, a €17m Bolliger & Mabillard coaster with three inversions.
The magical zone also includes the Merlin’s Quest boat ride, the Flaming Feather restaurant, and a play area called Arthur’s Tournament Training.
This summer, the area will be home to Dragonwatch, a family-friendly drop tower, and Pixarus, a pendulum ride situated in the middle of the helix of the Fénix coaster.
Additionally, Avalon will offer the Jumping Juna carousel attraction and Garden Tour, which takes guests on a tour though Merlin’s magical herb garden.
“With this expansion, we allow the story of medieval-themed area Avalon to continue,” said Peter van Holsteijn, head designer at Toverland. “We wanted to make it more complete for the entire family.
“We are achieving this – not only by adding new attractions – but also by introducing new viewing scenes and new characters, including friendly fire dragons and Juna the unicorn.
“Our smaller guests can also go on a discovery tour in a splashing water play area and a colourful toddler playground.”
Located in Sevenum, Toverland contains six themed areas featuring 35 attractions and shows, including Troy – the fastest, longest and tallest wooden roller coaster in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg.
