Phantasialand is an amusement park in Brühl, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany that attracts approximately 1,75 million visitors annually. The park was opened in 1967 by Richard Schmidt and Gottlieb Löffelhardt. Although starting as a family-oriented park, Phantasialand has also added thrill rides, especially during recent years. Furthermore, following the example of Europa-Park, they have decided to attract business customers beside the regular ones, calling it “Business der neuen Dimension” (“business of a new dimension”).
Among the park’s thrill rides is a themed Mine Train roller coaster called Colorado Adventure, which runs among some mountains in the park’s Wild West section and was opened by Michael Jackson.
