Wow, I had no idea Kieppi was leaving! So bummed to read that as it was quite an experience; maybe too intense for my taste but a rare model. What are they going to install in its place?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I can only repeat what others have said, those are some sweet shots! Thanks for sharing, Antti. :)

There might not even be a new ride, Linnanmäki has been planning an underground area and the entrance might be on Kieppi's place. If it isn't that, no-one has any clue on what ride there would be.

Just as a psa

Vonkaputous was mostly closed the latter half of 2016, well before it would've been closed due to cold. 2018 project?

What's it gonna be?

Postby Rill'o'beily » Fri Mar 31, 2017 8:29 am

As a subcriber on Linnanmäki's official newsletter, I got an invite to the raffle of participating in the first riders of their newest ride coming in to replace Kieppi.

In the email it is revealed that it will have a 140cm height requirement and will have spinning in some form (there's a finnish word for it but idk how to translate it, wildly spinning possibly in many directions)

The Finnish themepark community is stumped currently on what it's gonna be because none of the currently trendy flatrides fit the description or the spot, and a lot of the rides that would fit the spot are similiar to something they'd already have.

Great news!

maybe it's one of these new self-spinning rides from Gerstlauer/Technical Park?

Well the gerstlauer ones both have too big diameters, but more importantly aren't they generally classified as more family oriented rather than high thrill?

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

The whole point behind the Sky Roller and Sky Fly is that you can make your experience as tame or as thrilling as you want it to be.

Theres also a new smaller version coming out this year for Tivoli Friheden, it's called a Sky Racer. It's basically a small spinning wheel on the ground with rotating seats with wings, 16 meters in diameter. Should fit in nicely, if that's what they are going for.
