Wow! 3 Barrel rolls, a short immelmann, and a corkscrew! Looks like a fast and paced ride!

Also, is it just me or does that first barrel roll looks elongated than usual? It looks like it turns 90 degree exaggeratedly and it juts out to the side to the right exaggeratedly, then the 180 degree of the barrel rolls looks flat with a possible downward slope. It may just be the perspective of the photo but if not, then this may be a hell of a barrel roll!

Looking at that layout again, the helix after the corkscrew looks like it will be really intense. I love that first zero-g roll right after the drop. I'm a fan of these small but intense rides! This looks like a winner.

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!!!


I can't speak for how much landscape/trees will need to go, but it's looking to me that only two buildings will get demolished...the row of games/refreshments opposite Insane's lift, and the bumper car building. The plans do seem to indicate several new buildings in the area where the old games are (not to mention the station which appears to be underground) and an opened-up waterfront area where the bumper cars currently are, perhaps even with an extended boardwalk from the Twister/Wave Swinger area. I'm pretty excited to see how this pans out!

That layout looks really forceful for an invert and that's amazing. :lover: :lover: :lover:

Wow. Grona Lund just continues to impress me. I know they'll find a way to fit in anything, but I was not expecting them to build a B&M. I really gotta get back to Grona Lund when they open this ride cause it looks awesome.
Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.

I took a couple of shots of the park, when I returned to it after a few minutes' break at our hotel.
These views are sure going to look different once that new coaster is in place.

Along with the new drop tower, of course. :airtime:

The big crane arrives on a barge as it's too heavy for the bridge connecting to the island of Djurgården.

A golden sun will decorate the top of the Icaros tower.

*sees B&M invert*

Because Gröna Lund doesn't already feel cramped enough as is. Looks like a sweet ride anyhow.

Why not before 2020 tho?

Yes! It's becoming the Spaghetti Bowl* of Theme Parks! :airtime: :airtimer:




*Everything over and under and around each other?
And that's an AWESOME thing, too! (o:

This will actually beat Blackpool, IMhO, as far as having overlapping
rides and attractions is concerned. And BPB has way more space, too.
