Liseberg Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Liseberg has release the information that all of the construction work of Valkyria will be done before the summer season, but electrical work and testing will not be done. A exact date for the opening is not released yet.

I'm really hoping that I'll be able to ride this when I visit in late June! I may be cutting it close

Love the colors! It’s nice to see another Dive Coaster get built, but I am disappointed it’s going to have the vest restraints. Those really kill Valravn for me...

It's disappointing to hear negative reviews of the vest restraints, especially as they become commonplace. I know people have different experiences and opinions, though, so I'm holding out hope I won't mind.

 

I am glad B&M dive coasters are a thing again!

I really must visit Liseberg this year as well! I skipped last year so not only Valkyria, but Loke is also waiting for me

 

Riding Krake as my first Dive Machine was a somewhat letdown. It was fun, but nothing to write home about (and especially not worth queueing over 60 min). However, riding Oblivion: The Black Hole last summer raised my hopes a lot for Valkyria. Having even longer layout and more elements than Oblivion:TBH, Valkyria has potential to be a really solid coaster. But this is only my nitpicking, I'm sure the GP will love it (which let's face it, is the point of byuing a coaster - especially a DM). And with the theming capabilities Liseberg has proven many times recently, I may be waiting for the station building and theming even more than the actual ride!

Due to my trip to Japan, I also took today off (for fixing my jetlag) and made a visit to Liseberg to see how far they have come with the construction of Valkyria.

 

They have some big trouble with the infamous Gothenburg clay when digging the trench for the tunnel, which is one of the main thing for the delay of the premiere of Valkyria.

The normal parking lot for ride parts is to small for Valkyria, so they also use the big one.

The station looks huge, the themeing will make it smaller :)

Yesterday I had some errands to do in Göteborg. So I went to our usual photo spots around Liseberg with my camera.

 

And I can say that Valkyria is going to be BIG

Nice pictures! Valkyria looks like its coming along great. It's also nice to see Balder with a few missing track pieces on the first drop and second airtime hill. Glad to know Liseberg does maintenance on their prefab unlike that other European park.
