IIRC Krake comes to a complete stop and it has the same 6-across setup as Valkyria.

Oh yes, you're right! I guess my pointless observation was even more pointless than I gave it credit for :lol:

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Wow!! That POV really stands out. This is one of the best dive coasters layout in my opinion. I love the overbanked high speed turn and the two barrel rolls, much better than a second drop in my opinion, I rather have these elements than a second drop!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Man, that thing looks amazing. It surprisingly looks more intense and better paced than the larger dive machines.

Looks like a GREAT addition to the park! :lover:
Bigger is not always better. (And anyone who has ridden Wonder Woman knows this is true!)

In the pressrelease Liseberg states that the official ribbon cutting ceremony will happen on August 10th, BUT if the last certification, tests and staff educations are complete, the will do a soft opening earlier in the week :)

Given the original dive machine - Oblivion - stopped at the edge while you heard the message 'don't look down' which these days is a painted message you read as you stare at the drop below you, I always took it the stop was the norm and any that don't pause are the ones that are different.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

Omg I will actually be in Gothenburg around the 10th! This is kinda far fetched but does anyone by chance have a free entry ticket? I would looooooove just one ride on Valkyira :b . These tickets were handed out like paper a few years ago I think, and there are some Liseberg employees here heheeee :angel: . (Have already been once to Liseberg this year, so 500SEK for a couple of Valkyra rides is a bit steep :) )
