Although Liseberg hasn't said anything (officially at least), rcdb now lists Valkyria opening on August 10th.

Awesome to finally see a full POV of Valkyria, it looks like a really solid ride. I've said it before, but I absolutely love the drop-immelmann-turn-zero-g roll combination!

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

It looks great. It complements Balder well and almost channels the hang time of a wing coaster with that last zero-G roll.

For some reason I've always loved the look of the 6 across dive machine trains. Not sure how the ride experience compares to the 8 or 10 seats/row trains but this layout looks like one of the better dive machine layouts B&M has produced.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Pointless observation, but I noticed the train seems to 100% stop at the top of the drop. Normally it just slows... right... down...

It looks like a fun layout. I'm not a huge fan of Dive Machines apart from the drop, but it looks a bit different at least.

According to GT, a local tabloid, the press day for Valkyria will be on Tuesday. The ride is complete, but hasn't been written over to Liseberg yet, they cannot open it before then. Liseberg say they don't know exactly which day they will open it to the public, but they expect it to be during next week. On Monday they say they'll have an opening date.

So it could potentially open earlier than Friday it seems?

Looks fantastic, fun and UNIQUE. We get record holders here in the states… And they get better looking and more unique rides in Europe.

If I'm not mistaken most of the smaller dive machines do come to a stop. Most likely since the trains are lighter.
