Park Update www.parkworld-online.com


t may have taken just ten months to build, but the huge expansion of magic-themed park Toverland has been 17 years in the making. Starting out in 2001 as a large indoor amusement park, Toverland grew its indoor areas with new large halls during its early years, before moving outside with the addition of rides like the Booster Bike by Vekoma and wooden coaster Troy by Great Coasters International. The construction of new entrance area Port Laguna and themed area Avalon form the largest expansion in the history of the park: a growth of seven hectares and an investment of 35 million euros.


The wow factor The entrance to Toverland was originally through the first main hall, with a small ticketing area reminiscent of a family entertainment centre. The new expansion has seen the creation of a new entrance plaza and large ticket area, far more befitting such an impressive theme park. With a bigger capacity, it has shops, seating areas, restaurants and even a live show, with the aim of giving the park a more ‘grown up’ identity as a park for all ages. The new entrance is to what was the left hand side of the park, beyond Troy. The main car park will also relocate to the side of the park. The entrance plaza has a Mediterranean/Greek


mythology feel to it and provides ample space for families to gather and of course enter the park for real. Beyond the new turnstiles lies Port Laguna, a magical harbour town, which acts as the main hub from which to spread out across the park. Port Laguna has plenty of catering and retail outlets spread around a small lagoon. It’s the ideal space to take a breather at the end of a fun-packed day before heading back to the car.

Avalon I


Located in the Netherlands close to the town of Sevenum, Toverland is very much a family owned and run business. Since the park opened in 2001, the Gelissen family have dreamed of owning a B&M rollercoaster, and with the debut of Fnix, that dream has now come true. Thomas Page reports for Park World


Port Laguna provides performance spaces for themed bands and entertainment, as well as providing an amphitheatre setting for the fireworks display that the park will put on during them midsummer festivities and seasonal events. In keeping with the rest of the park, there are things for kids to do all over the place, from boat-themed climbing structures to water play to stepping stones and hidden pathways to explore. Magic is Toverland’s overarching theme, and all content and design has something to do with it. Port Laguna is full of opportunities for guests to make their own magic – at interactive magic show Magiezijn, visitors can go behind the closed doors of the Magistalis family home and witness
