Phantasialand's F.L.Y. is the first launched Flying coaster and the world's longest. Few actual stats are known about this roller coaster whose opening was delayed due to COVID-19. F.L.Y. anchors Rookburgh a new area of the theme park feauring a steampunk theme.
Described as a revolutionary flying machine that majestically spirals into the sky, while white steam rises from the streets and in the distance you hear the sound of pounding of machines, the pulse of Rookburgh as it awakes.
F.L.Y. is an evolution of the flying coaster with a new train design. This is the first flyer with two-abreast seating, instead of four, and the first with roatating seat carriages. Instead of having the seats fold up or down into the track, an uncomfortable experience, the carriage rotates so you board parallel with the track.
Phantasialand prides itself on storytelling and themes and F.L.Y. is no exception. Elaborate scenery, props, and effects surround and come into play while riding this roller coaster. The layout is very compact and not very tall. F.L.Y. begins with the first launch, followed later by a second booster launch. The twisted track has overbanked turns, two inversions, and multiple crossovers.
Opening date: September 17, 2020
Train has ten cars with one row each, seating two abreast per row.
