    I weirdly found that Hotel Matamba had the opposite issue, it looked great from the outside and the lobby is nice. but the bare concrete floor (mud-themed) in the room was just not nice. I'd rather have nice lightly-themed and very practical rooms and a well-themed communal area.

    Also strong winds yesterday blew open the tarpaulins over the hotel entrance doorway giving a glimpse inside of the hotel rooms and coaster interaction.

    PHL-Marcus on PhantaFriends.de has drawn up an updated version of the hotel layout.
    [​IMG]Orange - The infamous rusty entrance portal
    Yellow - The connecting pathways/bridges for hotel guests.
    Green - Lobby/reception with Hotel Room Tower 3 on top.
    Purple - The other 4 hotel room tower blocks.

    The curved end of Tower 4 is the roof top viewing platform, as seen the Rookburgh trailer released a couple of months back - directly beside the coaster's 2 launches.

    Underneath Tower 1 & 2 is expected to be Bar 1919, and beside them the Uhrwerk restaurant.

    It will certainly be interesting to see how it all comes together and what the very unusual hotel experience will be like. The prices should also be interesting...

    Please note: If your Acme Nuclear Bunker(tm) is
    a) rusty
    b) above ground
    c) quite clearly a steel foundry
    It may not function properly.

    I know it's no where near finished but I have to say I think this hotel and area look absolutely s&[email protected] Even from the concepts I think it looks dull and messy.

    I get it's steampunk and industrial, but areas such as Disneyland's Discoveryland show how beautiful the theme can be presented, but I just think this looks awful. It's not an area of a park that interests me and from looks alone I wouldn't want to stay in the hotel.

    Construction is underway in the Hotel Matamba garden in front of the loop bridge for presumably at last a direct to park entrance. Perhaps now with Hotel Charles Lindbergh also having park access they didn't want to leave it as the only hotel without.

    In Rookburgh 2 Zeppelin bodies have been delivered and lifted into the site. Its been speculated that as shown in some of the teaser artwork once they are finished they might be mounted/suspended somewhere in the area to give the effect of being moored/hovering overhead.

    I'm honestly amazed anyone was able to film footage of a new ride testing at PL without being jumped on by security, dragged away, and never seen again.

    Maybe they imprison them and force them to work on Wuzeball or something.

    Phantasialand confirmed closed until the 19th April. All those who had bought discounted prebooked tickets for the April dates that they are now closed can transfer those tickets for use any day during the summer season (as long as weekday tickets are used on weekdays and weekend tickets at weekends).

    I have flights and 2 nights at Hotel Matamba booked for 27th-28th April. I held off booking any park tickets for what would/will be my first time visit to the park. I will be surprised if the park does open by then but will remain hopeful. Need something to look forward to in all the doom and gloom!

    I would hazard a guess the flights will be grounded and the park will still be closed

    Unsure of the original source, but it still looks like there's quite an amount of theming and detailing left to do...

    "Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, we regret to inform guests that we have been forced to push the launch date of our brand new area, Rookburgh and its signature attraction F.L.Y, back to 2026. Rest assured, it will still open before the London Resort".
