Phantasialand: Cult attraction sealed forever - this sight is final

For 30 years she made visitors to Phantasialand happy. Now it is sealed: The “Hollywood Tour” is history. The confirmation of the amusement park is still pending – but new pictures from the interior of the ride leave no more questions unanswered.

Rumors of a final closure of the cult ride have been circulating for a long time. At least now everything is clear. Phantasialand buried the Hollywood Tour forever.

Phantasialand: Cult attraction “Hollywood Tour” closed forever

The small Brühler fairytale forest of the 1960s has long since become a huge action amusement park. The Hollywood Tour, in operation since 1990, has seen countless remodeling, inaugurations and closures all around it. Now she got it herself.

The boat tour through scenes from film classics such as “Jaws”, “Sindbad” or “King Kong” was still very popular with traditionalists of the park. Alfred Hitchcock greeted you at the entrance, then you went on water through the highlights of early Hollywood history. In addition to new highlights such as high-speed roller coasters and wild water rides, it seemed outdated.

Phantasialand buries cult attraction

Oldschool fans have long feared Phantasialand’s decision. When the park reopened after being closed due to the pandemic, the Hollywood Tour gates remained closed. Modification? Renovation? There was still hope, but then the customers realized that the boat trip had also disappeared from the new parking card.

Now new pictures from the hall seal the end. Photos available to the “Express” leave little doubt: the Hollywood Tour no longer exists. The images show the ride dolls lying around the area with their skin peeled off and their limbs severed. Rubble, broken cupboards and exposed cables prove that people are dismantling here.

From Phantasialand’s point of view, this is probably an understandable decision. Fans still liked to ride the cult ride, but queues hadn’t formed for a long time. With park expansion plans stalling, the space is urgently needed to create new attractions.
