It will be interesting to see how many trees and games they have to take out for this. I have faith in Grona Lund though to make it work and keep the nice feel of the park.

:shockr:

Gröna Lund really seems to want to drive the "limited space for expansion" argument into submission once and for all.

I'm really liking that layout. The more B&M Inverts in the world, the better.
"Next, we are going to solicit the children of strangers so that we can go on a ride designed for children. This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

I'm certain there already are but are there any other B&M inverts without a vertical loop? I feel like there are and I can't think of any.
Look for the humor in anything and you will find it.

I can't think of any either (aside from that weird kids one) but the barrel rolls are some of the best elements on these B&M inverts (aside from the batwing / pretzel loop things) and the fact that it has so many of them is pretty awesome.

Only one I can think of is the Family Invert in Shanghai (that doesn't have any inversions). So there actually aren't any!

Pre-drops are the essence of life.

It kinda seems like a lot of the area will need to be demolished and rebuilt or significantly altered. Simply because there seems to be a lot of supports going through roofs and such. I Can't wait for them to release more detailed info and art!!!
