Such an amazing ride and it will be so great in this location!!!!


I dont think it could have been said any better than this. I am surprised its taken a park so long to buy one of these after Falcons Fury. This now gives me another awesome thing to ride due to me and Insane not getting on very well!

I'm suspecting that we may see a future relocation of either the 2nd gen drop tower or the S&S tower or maybe even both.

Skara is in need of a new major attraction, and Parks and Resorts have communicated that they will need to make a major investment there soon. Also Kolmården will probably need more rides to entertain all the new visitors that Wildfire will bring in, but it's hard to see them get a permission for a tower ride within the next few years. Maybe even Furuvik could be considered.

Is there any park that have relocated a 2nd gen Intamin drop tower?

Yes, Superman: Tower of Power at Six Flags St. Louis was relocated from Six Flags AstroWorld after the park closed in 2005. It seems to be the only Intamin Drop Tower that I'm aware of that has been relocated. It'll be neat to see what happens to either the S&S power tower or the Intamin drop tower. :)

Awesome! This ride looks great and it just gives me yet another reason to go back to Grona Lund, which I just absolutely love. =)
Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.

Not that it should matter that much, but isn't the actual tower of Fritt Fall really old? As far as I remember it's a converted observation tower that opened in 1966.

And a bit unrelated, Parks & Resorts stated that Furuvik will be getting a new ride for 2017 as early as April. They will reveal what it is during this summer.

Pitt Fall @ Kennywood? Don't know if it has been rebuilt elsewhere or not, this is the only information available on wikipedia.

In June 2011, it was put for sale and was bought in early September to an undisclosed buyer.


But yes, I would not be surprised if this were to be followed by the removal of one of the other towers (obviously not the StarFlyer).

I managed to stumble upon this article by SVT (Swedish public broadcasting company)
It's in Swedish, but what it says is basically that Gröna Lund has applied with a new plan to develop the parking lot and that it will be discussed in the city planning board of Stockholm now.

The plan is to have 2-3 stories tall buildings in classical style around the perimeter with a parking garage underground. Inside of the buildings there will be rides etc. The process of planning everything, including letting everyone have an opinion on the plans is supposed to take about two years. Gröna Lund hopes that the new area will open at around 2020-2021.
