Toverland's New B&M Wing Coaster - Fenix - Opens This Weekend + New Onride Video

Fenix, a part of the brand new themed area named Avalon, will see its grand opening this weekend at Toverland, located in the Netherlands.  The giant B&M wing coaster, with brilliant blue track and beige supports, has been steadily testing at the park for weeks now, ahead of guests getting their first rides in.

Avalon features Fenix and also a boat ride with an indoor section, and as Toverland is known for, elaborate theming throughout the land.  Riders on Fenix will be treated to three inversions, a 131 foot lift hill, maximum speeds of 59 miles per hour, and 2,667 feet of track.

Ahead of the opening, the park has released a new point of view ride on Fenix:

Fenix features a selection of elements that we have seen used on B&M wing coasters in the past, but definitely features a unique layout.  The speed hill after the first twist-and-dive drop looks like it may give some air-time, but we won't know for sure until the first rides.  The pacing of the ride looks strong, with little lag between elements.

It's amazing to see how much Toverland has grown over the past ten or so years, from an indoor amusement park to what is quickly becoming a sprawling outdoor theme park.  Their attractions keep getting better with each addition, I can't wait to see what the future holds for the park.
