Photo TR: Gröna Lund & Tusenfryd 27-28/07

Postby viking86 » Sat Jul 29, 2006 5:21 am

Last night I came home after going on a short coastertrip with a friend to Gröna Lund and Tusenfryd. We started with GL, which is a small park in Stockholm, the capitol of Sweden. The park is very easy to get to as its located almost in the center of the city. Its a small park with a great atmosphere and some awesome rides!

Heres a view of Stockholm from the ferry to the park.

Gröna Lund from the ferry. The location of this park is just awesome!
003.jpg
Our first ride of the day was Vilda Musen, a Gerstlauer coaster which opened a few years ago.
004.jpg
Its impossible to take a picture of this coaster without taking a picture of Jetline...
005.jpg
SEE?! Totally impossible!
006.jpg
Jetline opened in 1988 and its still the largest coaster in the park.
007.jpg
Awesome Anton-curved-chainlift-stuff!
008.jpg
This is one of those "never in America"-rides. The reason: The support structure for the MCBR on the right is like a foot from the train going up the lifthill. I almost hit my arm on it!
009.jpg
This is where everyone goes "Weeeeee!"
010.jpg
And this is where everyone goes "OMFG!"
011.jpg
Everyone loves Jetline! Its a very powerfull ride which throws you around a bit, but its not rough.
012.jpg
Crappy pictue of a train heading down the psycho-drop as another train full of happy riders returns to the station. They were running 4 trains so the line was only 5 mins, even with the park being packed!
013.jpg
Fritt Fall was next.
014.jpg
260 feet of Intamin dropping-awesomeness!
015.jpg
They had one of those standup-floorless cars.
016.jpg
Take a good look at the purple car before looking at the next picture.
017.jpg
See the difference?? Yes, the car actually tilts AT THE TOP! 260 feet above the ground the car tilts forward! Its such an amazing feeling!
018.jpg
Woooooooosh!
019.jpg
There was plenty of funny faces on Fritt Fall Tilt!
020.jpg
The location of this park was just awesome!
021.jpg
It was really beatiful!
022.jpg
Mondial Topscan through the trees!!
023.jpg
They also had a 200 feet S&S Combo Tower but we didnt ride because of the long line.
024.jpg
The funhouse was awesome! Tons of wacky stuff!
025.jpg
And it ended with this awesome slide! It actually has a double-down where you get airtime!!!
026.jpg
Gröna Lund also had this weird ride! Its kinda like a bicycle which does loops, but we didnt feel like doing a workout!
027.jpg
The park had a great, classic atmosphere!
028.jpg
Another picture for you lifthill-enthusiasts. Check out the clearance on the right side!
029.jpg
The park became really beatiful as the sun went down...
030.jpg
Since I didnt get any pictures of all the hot swedish lesbians, I'll end the GL update with a picture of me with a giant Intamin droptower sticking out of my head! =)

Park

That place reminds me of a much more upscale version of Indiana Beach, being cleaner and much more well kept. That Schwarzkopf looks very nice. Only Grona Lund doesn't have the Cornball Express!

Mouse

That Wild Mouse also looks great with the banked turns, drops, and apparent lack of those obnoxious switchbacks that most mice do.

Thanks for the nice replies! I'll have a small update from Tusenfryd coming up either later today or tomorrow.

For those of you wondering about the layout on Jetline, its almost identical to BMRX, which you can find an onride video of here. Jetline is bigger though, and BMRX looks like its braked more. Jetline felt like it was flying through the brakeruns and helixes.
Oh, and I can definately understand that these Schwarzkopf coasters are rather uncomfortable with OTSR because they are quite wild, and Ive heard that those restraints usually comes down during the ride aswell...

Btw, just out of curiosity, are there any other Intamin droptowers where the cars tilts at the top? I know that Apocalypse @ Drayton Manor tilts forwards as it starts going up. What about those Gyro drops like Acrophobia @ SFOG? I can imagine them tilting at the top....

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Great TR! You really missed something when you didn't ride Katapulten (And those bicycle thingies. They're REALLY fun! When I were at Gröna Lund there was no queue at all, so me and a friend rode it two times in a row, cause it's so fun! And I think that JetLine is pretty rough in the back of the trains, but that's just me (and my friend). I don't wanna know how a Vekoma is if I think JetLine is :Pr

One mroe thing... Go go go Fritt Fall! xD
