Here’s a video of another animatronic Elvis, this time at the Scala Theatre formerly at Phantasialand. He starred in the Starparade show and had very impressive movements. Such a very lifelike animatronic for being from the 80’s!.

My dash did it again.
Seriously though, when is the Taron below going to Germany to ride the Taron above?

Photo of the Witch from “Fire, Water, Light” at the Tanagra Theatre in Phantasialand in Bruhl, Germany. Her purpose in the show was that she controlled the elements of fire, water, Earth, and light. She “flooded” the stage by striking a waterfall with her laser, which brought in the singing mermaid. Sadly, she, as well as the other animatronics in the theatre(many of whom were featured in the first show, simply titled, the “Tanagra Show” which had opened in 1981) were destroyed when the roof caught fire from a nearby roller coaster, destroying everything in the theatre. 
It breaks my heart what happened to this show. Such gorgeous animatronics gone due to mechanical faulty. Wonder why we’ve lost so many nice animatronic shows in Germany to fires? (Piraten in Batavia being the other)

Have you ever featured the Tanagra Theater on here?
You know, I could have sworn that we had, but apparently not! Let’s fix that right now, shall we?
The animatronics in this show were gorgeous, and I wish there were better quality footage of them.
I’m still heartbroken over its untimely destruction via a fire. We’ll always remember you, Tanagra Theater ❤️
