Since it is no longer on Interlink I assume that it has gotten a buyer. Liseberg however cannot announce where it's going to. We'll only know when the park announces it.

I don't see any cutting with scissors or whatever. So I assume it's actually being sold and going to move to a different park. <3

^ I believe so! It got rescued and it'll have great days again! :D
- I have to prove that NL1 is still alive! Pack-a-punch tracks are, I personally feel, a LOT of fun! :)
- IMO, the ride stats are not everything in most cases! Never rely on the big numbers showing how tall, fast or long!

It's pretty close to Balder. I think it will feel like you will almost crash into it when riding. Looks great!

VALKYRIA LAYOUT REVEALED!

Image



When Liseberg opens for the season on 22 April, the giant Loke will stand at the ready to do battle with Balder, and the Ancient Norse saga will begin. Nearby, the sequel – Valkyria – is underway. The park has decided what the new rollercoaster will be like, and visitors will be able to experience a sample of it this year.
When it’s completed in 2018, Valkyria will be Europe’s longest dive coaster. Now the track layout has been determined and we know how its construction will affect the rest of the park.
After the lift hill from the station building, riders will have a moment to look out over the Mölndalsån River, and a heart-stopping standstill at the very edge of the vertical drop that defines a dive coaster. In Valkyria’s case, it’s a 50-metre free fall straight into an underground cavern. Riders then burst out of the underworld at 105 km/h to be spun upside down and dive towards the JukeBox. After a few more inversions, a spin around the Amusement Arcade and a few swoops out over the river, the nearly 750-meter long ride comes to an end.
Construction has already begun on the station building, on the former site of Kanonen. Other attractions will be running as usual until late summer, when the Fairy Tale Castle and Wave Swinger need to shut down to make room for Valkyria. The Wave Swinger will be placed in a new location in 2018, and there are plans to replace the Fairy Tale Castle in a few years with a similar attraction.
“We’ve planned the construction phases to have the least possible impact on the park,” says Liseberg’s CEO Andreas Andersen, “but we can’t avoid all disruptions. It takes time to build a rollercoaster.” But Andersen promises every sacrifice will be worth it.
Valkyria is being built by the renowned Swiss company Bolliger & Mabillard, which has designed some of the world’s most acclaimed rollercoasters. If you can’t wait until 2018, you’ll be able to take a virtual ride on Valkyria this year. Liseberg’s new Myths & Legends section will feature Valkyria VR – a virtual experience with six simulator chairs with virtual reality headsets to give people a taste of things to come.
“It’s an attractive and grand production, and we’re glad to be able to show our guests what’s coming,” Andersen says. “But it will be nothing compared to the real-life Valkyria doomsday drop!

If this paces anything like in the video it might actually be a contender for best dive coaster. Those elements in the ultra-wide trains will be a blast. Any word on how many seats in a row yet?
Boulder Dash is the only good roller coaster.

That's a really cool animation. And I like that layout a lot.
1-Skyrush; 2-X2; 3-Millennium Force;
4-Iron Rattler; 5-Maverick; 6-El Toro; 7-Voyage
8-Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit; 9-Kingda Ka; 10-Diamondback

The animation is amazing compared to others. Dive machines tend to have a very predictable layout but this looks like one of the better versions. Excited for it and perfect fit for the park.

Sam it's 6-8 seats wide. even still I firmly believe this could be the best dive coaster to be built. I mean not really top10 worthy because dive coaster but definitely really good and an excellent addition to the park.

Looks like a great layout!

I just now see that they're also removing Sagoslottet for the new coaster. Was this announced earlier? I like those quirky kind of darkrides but Valkyria will probably be a bit better than Sagoslottet! ;)

Yes, but the press release says a new dark ride will replace it soon. Also the wave swinger will be moved for 2018 to make way as well.

Construction has already begun on the station building, on the former site of Kanonen. Other attractions will be running as usual until late summer, when the Fairy Tale Castle and Wave Swinger need to shut down to make room for Valkyria. The Wave Swinger will be placed in a new location in 2018, and there are plans to replace the Fairy Tale Castle in a few years with a similar attraction.

Layout looks pretty funky. I like it, in addition to the path dive.
