Honestly truly, no hate or anything, but Val has one of THE better/best layouts to date for a dive coaster. Not sure why B&M wasn't that creative for the one's here in the States.

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

^ When B&M is given a flat piece of land, with no restrictions, they tend to be more boring. When they're given certain restrictions and have to work around things, it forces them to become creative, as it does with any other designer.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

The CEO Andreas is a coaster enthusiast and during Helix had alot to say about the layout =)

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

There is actually five cues (frist row, fast pass, single rider, the rest of the train & disability), the disability cue start @ the photo booth, the rest of the lines splits after the main entrance.

So there’s an entire queue just for the front row? Does single rider still let you on the front or is it back rows only?

When B&M was doing SheiKra and Griffon, the modern dive coaster was still a new thing. For all we know, Canada's Wonderland's upcoming dive coaster could be an even better layout than Valkyria's.

I also call shenanigans on the "flat piece of land" thing. Shambananacreampie, Katun, Nitro, Raptor / Monster, Diamondback, Valravn... All apparently really good B&Ms that were built on open plots of land.

Marcus (or anyone else going on friday) can you report on what the vests are like? I heard that they were the kind that "give" a little and are not completely locked in place.

The "west"-part of the restrains have some elastic flex at the top fastening points, so the rider can lean a little bit forward.

I'm at the park and just rode Valkyria. Great addition to Liseberg. Yay for single rider queue, I was on the ride in 10 minutes.
