According to Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, and Magnus (the CEO), the Bumper cars will relocate to Furuvik, and Snake will occupy its spot during 2019, while the new Coaster is built. After that, it will relocate to another park within Parks and Resorts.

The area where the bumper cars and Biergarten are will have a complete overhaul, most buildings will be demolished and replaced, and the park will build a boardwalk along the water from Snake all the way to Bläckfisken.

^So Snake will only be at the park temporarily or am I misreading it?

The 2021 B&M reminds me of Black Mamba in a lot of ways. Wonder if it'll feel just as tight.

That is correct. Snake will be there in 2019, but then relocate.

Funny thing: The headline in the paper reads "Gröna Lunds new attraction: a rotating "vomit machine""...

Why do I still have a donkey title???

A capacity nightmare, but looks really fun, I'll be sure to check it out next year!

Moving the bumper cars to Furuvik also makes sense, a great addition for the target group. As to where Snake will be moved i 2020, my bet is Skara, but time will tell.

Hey, I won! Do I get a cookie this time?

Interesting that it's temporary, does this mean that it's going to be a trailer-mounted ride?

The weather has been really nice in Stockholm this weekend, so I took a small trip by Gröna Lund to see how far they've come on the construction. Pretty far actually!

Behind the fence there's a big hole, the station for the new coaster will be underground.

Thanks for the pictures, I was wondering yesterday how construction was coming along as this is likely to be a very difficult build. It will definitely be interesting following this one. This will be a perfect case study to use for whenever someone says a park 'doesn't have room for a new coaster' for generations to come.

I'm still betting that we'll be seeing B&M do a two-across train for this coaster. I remember that earlier concept rendering and those clearances look tight.
