Yeah, so far I'm not a fan of B&M vests (and I know we've gotta expect them now). But I do like that logo!

Valkyria has the new generation of soft west, its a "spring suspension" holding it back so that it may flex during ride.

I keep getting distracted by Balder, but Valkyria-under-construction is really appealing to look at.

I will include some more photos of Balder next time...

And I have to mention Andreas, that makes time in his calendar to show us "nerds" around inside Liseberg when it's closed. BIG THANKS!!!

Almost the whole track is mounted, except for the part that have to wait for the completion of the tunnel.

And the small holes in the track sections is for future lighting.

Did we ever find out if Kanonen was bought by another park?
