The fourth episode of Toverland's 'Making Of' series has now been published, giving another on-site construction update and also a first look at Fenix's trains, which look incredible!

For some reason I thought this wasn't opening until next year. It looks amazing.

Like the laughter when it stops at the top, then relief once it's on the first drop and going!

Edit: It doesn't sound like it's full of as much sand as The Swarm, which is nearly silent.

Toverland have released their own short video of Fenix's first test run, which also includes some on-ride footage. I also love how excited people are :P

Merlin's quest has also begun testing, as shown in these photos added to Toverland's minisite. The boats do look stunning.

Episode 6 of The Making of Port Laguna & Avalon was released yesterday, this time focusing on the finishing touches being applied to the areas, but also providing a first look (I think) inside the dark ride portion of Merlin's Quest, along with footage of it testing alongside Fenix.

As was touched on in one of the recent 'Making Of' episodes, Port Laguna will feature similar magic wand technology to that seen in Universal's Wizarding Worlds:
A magical welcome in Port Laguna.

Inside the various alcoves and showcases of Port Laguna, magical scenes are hidden. If you go on a discovery trip along the boulevard with a magic wand and the Mapa Magica, you can practice real magic by using the right spell and magical move.

Not going to lie, Toverland is now high on my list of foreign parks to visit as this just looks stunning. Apparently there is also a VIP opening tonight too.

I visited Toverland on a quiet day in 2019 and was really surprised by how nice the park was! They have some really great rides with lovely landscaping! The staff were really friendly too, and were great at letting us stay on the rides!
In the end, we ride Troy 25 times, got 6 rides on the Booster Bike, 10 on Fenix as well as lots more. The staff on Fenix realised that we were trying to sit on every row and let us just swap seats when the train came in!

It was interesting though riding a B&M wing coaster when the train was so empty, especially near the back it seems to rattle a bit.
The staff said that the extra weight when the train is full would usually dampen the rattle.
