  • NEW 2022 - Fønix (Phoenix), a brand-new roller coaster designed to be the largest, fastest, and probably the most exciting amusement park ride in the country. The ride will stand at 40 meters tall, reach speeds of up to 95 kilometers an hour, feature the world’s first “Stall Loop” element, and have more airtime than any other amusement park ride in Scandinavia.

    Fårup Sommerland is expecting Fønix to rise up and overlook the entire park by April 2022. Guests will soon experience its thrilling twists, turns, drops, and loops at speeds of up to 95 kilometers per hour, making it both the largest and faster than any other roller coaster in Denmark.

    “We are extremely proud to finally unveil our plans to develop and build Denmark’s largest and fastest roller coaster, which will be ready for our guests next year. We’ve been working on it for a long time, and I look forward to see our guests enjoying what it has to offer”, said Niels Jørgen Jensen, CEO of Fårup Sommerland.

    Fønix will also be the first roller coaster in the world to feature a “Stall Loop” - a world's first element combining the all-time favorite classic looping with the spectacular inverted stall into one new unique element. In this new element the train is turned upside down by half a loop followed by an inverted parabolic arc where the riders experience a period of 2.5 seconds of hangtime before entering into the second half of the loop combined with a vertical twist.

    Justin Garvanovic, founder of the European Coaster Club, calls Fønix an exciting and significant addition to Fårup Sommerland. He believes many of the world’s roller coaster enthusiasts will be attracted to what Fønix has to offer, and the Stall Loop in particular.

    “A ride of this nature is simply wonderful news for us here in Europe. The days of looking jealously west at parks in the US are over, and it's rides like Fønix that are responsible for this.”, says Garvanovic. “It's rare nowadays to find something new anywhere, let alone on a roller coaster. Fønix's Stall Loop is just that - something new. It will combine both positive G-Forces and Zero G Force, a perfect combination. I can't wait to try Fønix and the Stall Loop, it should be exquisite."

    The king of Scandinavian airtime

    With a height of 40 metres, a total length of 905 metres, and 14 different elements such as drops, loops, and twists, Fønix is set to be Denmark’s longest loop roller coaster with more airtime than any other Scandinavian amusement ride.

    “This is one of the first times the world gets to see and experience a truly unique roller coaster design. We expect the Stall Loop, as well as all the other exciting Fønix elements, to become a magnet for many roller coaster lovers and enthusiasts all around the world,” says Niels Jørgen Jensen. “At the same time, we also encourage Danish and international guests to come and experience Fønix. We promise it’ll be a breathtaking and fun ride you won’t forget”.

    Vekoma Rides, one of world’s largest roller coaster manufacturers, is the brains behind Fønix’s unique design and construction. Total investment of this project is approximately DKK 100 million (EUR 13 million), making it the park’s largest-ever single investment. The second largest was back in 2013 when roughly DKK 44 million (EUR 5.9 million) was invested into building 'Orkanen', a popular Suspended Family Coaster.

    According to Niels Jørgen Jensen, CEO of Fårup, this investment will likely be one of the biggest in the Danish tourism industry for 2022, something he believes is necessary to attract guests and tourists back to Denmark.

    “The tourism industry has been hit hard by the pandemic. It’s extremely important for big tourism players like ourselves to invest in new and exciting attractions. This will ultimately create long-term competitive advantages, which will ultimately push the industry back on to safer ground during and after the pandemic”, says Niels Jørgen Jensen.

    Thrill-seekers visiting Fårup Sommerland can already catch a glimpse of Fønix taking shape. Niels Jørgen Jensen expects it to be ready and fully operational by April 2022, and welcomes all guests, far and wide, to experience Denmark’s largest and fastest roller coaster.

    F.L.Y. offers an uncompromised focus on the sensation of flying! The pace strikes a balance between the sensation of speed and allowing riders to take in its incredible views: an amazing flying experience - a journey rather than a ride...


    “F.L.Y. is world's longest and first launched flying coaster! The track layout is designed with an uncompromised focus on sensation of flight. This means all aerobatics are performed in the flying positioning, but with a high degree of variation in forces and countless direction changes. The combination of the different positions of riders, creating a free view dark ride section in combination with a thrill, makes this ride type a one of a kind in the roller coaster industry. Sections where riders are pushed in the vest are always followed by an airtime hill or a roll-over element where riders experience zero-G flight. This keeps the ride experience unpredictable and thrilling, while accessible to all visitors. The pace strikes a balance between the sensation of speed and allowing riders to take in its incredible views: F.L.Y. was designed as part of an integral, flying experience that factors in all the spectacular close encounters with the area scenery - a journey rather than a ride.”

    Quote Phantasialand:  “Sitting upright, your journey with F.L.Y. begins until your pilot’s seat turns gallantly under the rail for lift-off and you are shot into the sky lying down - and flying!”

    The sensational Suspended Thrill Coaster “Hals-über-Kopf” and Family Boomerang "Volldampf” at Erlebnispark Tripsdrill are two highly themed coasters that feature a unique intertwined layout, crossing each other several times...


    The Family Boomerang Coaster “Volldampf” and sensational Suspended Thrill Coaster “Hals-über-Kopf” feature a unique intertwined layout, crossing each other several times. Thematically, both rides have a regional reference which is an exclusive theming that has been created in cooperation with Erlebnispark Tripsdrill.

    The spectacular Suspended Thrill Coaster is newly developed by Vekoma. Latest state of the art technology with machined chassis and steering wheel boogies has been used which runs very smooth and requires less  maintenance.  The design with no less than 2 inversions, 5 airtime hills and 6 exciting twists and turns makes it possible to offer inversions for young and old from 1.20 m (*) tall and up. Combinations of high speed turns and low force inversions prepare the small riders for the real work. This ride will thrill the seasoned rollercoaster enthusiast, but is equally fun and accessible to the youngest among thrill seekers.

    On the Family Boomerang with a track length of about 500 metres and speed up to 60 km/h, passengers are taken through a break turn, camelback and twisted camelback, s-curve and curved stall up to a height of 22 metres. The unique layout and ride experience of riding forward and backward gives double fun!

    The custom design layout of 'Phoenix' is completely optimized to allow for effective use of the available space at Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park at Coney Island.......


    Vekoma Rides Manufacturing offered the first suspended family coaster with the excitement of a true suspended coaster. As the suspended coasters to date were full-scale thrill rides, Vekoma responded quickly to the new market developments and designed a family oriented ride with an enhanced thrill. Guests experience the flying sensation with an unobstructed view downward without the inversions and speed of a full-scale suspended coaster.

    Low maintenance booster drives and limited G-forces offer a reduction in maintenance on trains and track, without sacrificing excitement. Individual steering wheel bogies offer a smooth ride and improve the coaster’s durability. The innovative hydraulic locking system on the individual lap bars holds both adults and kids in a comfortable way and enhances the sense of security while extra padding on the bars and seats ensure comfort through the twists and turns during the ride. We offer up to 20 passengers per train resulting in high capacity.

    This custom design layout of 'Phoenix' is completely optimized to allow for effective use of the available space at Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park, while providing a high level of thrill throughout the ride. The ride combines high speed, high acceleration sections with soaring elevated sections for exciting views and guest circulation possibilities below. The ride will offer a memorable, exciting and repeatable experience due to the exclusivity of the different ride elements. This will be a fun and thrilling ride for your park, suitable for the entire family.
