p. 37 - New photos of Monster!

Recommended Posts

Damn, how far down do they go, to hit water? That's pretty something. Makes one

appreciate how much effort, work, and materials go into creating a new thrill for the gp.

 

Keep following the TPR tour Photo Trip Reports. We got a hard hat tour (without hardhats) underground to check out construction. We went down two laddera so I'd guess that we were standing 25 feet below the sidewalks.

I'm pleased the the old Biergarten was at least replaced with a Beer Tavern.

The construction of the new B&M Invert Monster is quickly going forward. I did a short construction update video if anyone is interested in seeing more. 

Our friends at Grona Lund sent us two new photos of Monster, check them out!

A few of us have been doing ongoing trip reports of TPR's recent Europe trip - chronologically, Grona Lund was the last park that most of us visited on the trip, so it'll be a while.

 

That being said, I'll post one here. If I recall correctly, this is to be the end of the layout and transfer table. This is from July 28th.

So inspired by the Liseberg thread I found some previews of what the upcoming expansion of Gröna Lund might look like, its not final. Pictures show what looks like a large multi-launch coaster. I also included a picture for what seems like more underground office/workshop space

Where did you find these previews?

That multi-launch coaster looks pretty interessting.

Therese are public documents from the city of Stockholm. Very long and boring documents but it really shows how complicated these expansions are, they have to account for things like added sound and environmental impact. There are people living just next to Gröna Lund and this expansion will be right outside their windows. The problem there seem to be be that the expansion would put sound levels above the required maximum. BUT they are already above the limit and this would make it worse. Interesting dilemmas that the park has to work out, they are looking into paying for new windows for all residents for example. Hopefully it can all be worked out. The coaster might be 40 or 60m high

 

This is not the B&M btw, its another expansion

Do you have a link to those documents? I still love to see them.

 

Yes i know these plans are not about the B&M. That B&M coaster is constructed in the existing park and those plans are about the expention on the parkinglot next to the park

The new zoning plan have gone out on public consultation now. Gröna Lund has released quite a lot of information here: https://www.gronalund.com/sv/Planera-ditt-besok/2024/

 

It's all in Swedish but in short points they state:

 

- They hope to start construction in 2024

- The new area will consist of at least 25% greenery and vegetation.

- No rides have been decided upon, the renders are just for illustrating the height limits.

- Speaking of height limits, the general height limit of the new area will be 12m, however one spike at 18m, three at 30m, one at 35m and one at 45m will be allowed.

Nice, thanks. A very triggering FAQ A capital city cant be static, looks change over time. Grona Lund is very cramped in the high season, an expansion is much needed. Also with 1.6 million visitors annually that has to be weight against the dozens(?) of complaints

As is the case with Liseberg, Gröna Lund will stay closed for the whole season. Construction of the new B&M is going forward though, as well as the new area where it will stand.

 

An article was published just a few days ago and both the name and the theme was revealed. The names is "Monster" and is themed around a monster that lives in an abandoned subway station.

Great! Whether this is a great coaster/layout or not, the setting looks really unique which will surely add to the experience. 24 riders per train (artwork showing four-across trains, but seven rows), so we're looking good for tight clearances too. This is one park in Europe I've not been, but I think it's pretty much at the top of my list, even without Monster.

I went past Gröna Lund today to see if there was something to see, and a managed to catch a few pics of the construction of the "Monster-area". First up a peek through the gate of the "Tyrolen entrance". You can see part of the brake run that was installed last winter already.

Another one through the same gate, only "Tyrol" visible on the left remains of the old buildings.

Last but not least i took a pic from the ferry while leaving. Here we can see the new beer tavern, also visible in the first pic, replacing the old Biergarten in the same spot. Also visible is parts for the massive support that will carry the weight of Monsters first drop.

I totally agree with this! 🍻 ^ And the video is totally awesome! So much stuff to show, including the park, itself!
