  1. Ich hab dazu gerade auf coasterforce einen Beitrag geschrieben. Ich kopier den mal und füg den hier einfach so ein (Achtung Englisch!). I was curious if the added area of Rookburgh would actually increase the capacity of Phantasialand in a meaningful way, since a lot of people always suggest this would be a good way to boost sales.To find this out, we need the size of PHL, the size of Rookburgh and the current capacity of PHL.The size of PHL:I decided to get two measurements, the official size (including attractions, parking, offices, etc.) and the actual size of the park itself (only the area with attractions) by measuring it out in Google Earth.Official size: 28haActual size: 10,03ha (excluding RB)The size of Rookburgh:This was relatively straight forward, I just measured out the area in Google Earth.Size of Rookburgh: 0,81haThe current capacity of PHL:This was a tricky one. I called Phantasialand to ask how many people are allowed in the park, however the nice lady on the phone said, that she doesn't know that and that this also wouldn't be communicated with her. The maximum allowed number of people in the park is individually agreed by the park and the Gesundheitsamt. So I had to make an educated guess.After a bit of searching, I was able to find the max capacity of Holiday Park and Movie Park, 8000 people and 7000 people respectively.Dividing the officially stated area by the maximum number of allowed visitors in the park gave me a number between 50qm/visitor and 70qm/visitor.I went with 50qm/visitor, since I like the idea of PHL being busy.If we divide the official size of PHL by 50qm we get (28ha/50qm) = 5.600 visitorsKeep in mind that this can be inaccurate, since I'm pretty sure that the Gesundheitsamt cares about the actual area inside the park that is actually accessible by guests. Maybe Holiday Park has a bigger parking lot and more areas that guests cannot access, but we don't know that.If we now assume that the Gesundheitsamt really only cares about the area inside the park, we now want to find out how many square meters one guest has inside the park.To do that we divide the actual park area by the maximum allowed number of visitors in the park (10,03ha/5.600) = 17,9qm/visitorNow we now that if you want to admit one more guest into the park you need an additional 17,9 square meters.Rookburgh is 0,81 hectares big, dividing by 17,9qm should give us the number of visitors added to the capacity of PHL!The result is (drumroll please!): 453 more visitors!This would boost the capacity by 8% to a maximum of 6.053 visitors!When everyone pays the full admission fee that gives PHL an additional 23.782,5€ in income per day.Is that worth it? I don't know, I'm not an economist.However I read that on the first of May 2001 (the day Gebirgsbahn and Grand-Canyon Bahn burned down) there were allegedly 20.000 people in the park.
  2. Hat schonmal jemand überlegt, dass Rookburgh einfach so teuer geworden ist, dass das PHL einfach kein Budget mehr fürs Marketing hat? /s
  3. Die wurden erst recht spät zu der Baustelle hinzugefügt, quasi das Meiste schon bekannt war. Zumindest wurde das ein paar Seiten vorher im Thread mal geschrieben.
  4. Ich habe mir nach 2 Monaten still mitlesen auch mal einen Account erstellt um mit zu diskutieren, danke für das klasse Forum! Ich bin nicht im Stande wirklich darüber zu urteilen, da ich den aktuellen Baufortschritt nicht kenne; aber ich denke, dass Phantasialand wird dann etwas bekanntgeben wenn es wirklich was zu sehen gibt. Zwar wären Infos für uns Klasse, jedoch kann ich auch verstehen, dass man dem 08/15 Besucher keine langweiligen Stützenbilder vorsetzen will, da dieser dann eventuell den Umfang des Projektes unterschätzt und das nach hinten losgeht und ein Großteil der Leute unbeeindruckt nach Hause gehen, damit wäre der erste Eindruck schonmal hin. Andererseits wären ein neuer Trailer mit eventuell detaillierterem Artwork oder konkreteren Daten so langsam mal angebracht. Ich hab aber Vertrauen in das Phantasialand, dass die eine Strategie haben und eventuell wirklich warten bis es was zu zeigen gibt.
