Liseberg just released a pressrelease: First testrun if Valkyria only in swedish.

It says it was a sucsessfull testrun and they will continue on with testruns, tweaking of the coaster, training of the staff, completion if the theming and finaly certification of the ride. They estimate it will take ~3 weeks until the grand opening.

^ That's a really unexpected spot for Kanonen to end up. I do want to see a confirmation from the park for that reason, but if so this is a shock.

Does anyone read First Drop Magazine? That's cited, but there isn't an online article I can find.

It's only a notice in the "on track"-section in the latest First Drop about Lost Island and Kanonen.

Lost Island Waterpark in Iowa was absolutely my first guess as to where Kanonen would end up.
"Next, we are going to solicit the children of strangers so that we can go on a ride designed for children. This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

(Sorry to spam the thread)

Alright so it does look like Lost Island purchased Kanonen but they aren't planning on installing it yet, and may sell it....

Sounds like Kanonen may be headed to Lost Island Waterpark in Iowa


This makes absolutely no sense for Lost Island to install this. I see the confirmation post from social media reposted here and if it is legit, this still makes no sense to me.
