Linnanmäki has just uploaded a new photo to their FB saying: "A hibernating Linnanmäki? Nope! Construction for the next season has already started and you can see the updates in Facebook."

The photo is from where the junior bumper cars used to be (and until 2009 a HUSS Rainbow). It clearly shows a large hole dug in the ground, but if you look close enough, I think I can just make out a square-ish concrete block in the center. My fingers are crossed for a new ride of course, maybe even a drop tower! But we'll have to wait and see. It could also be something other than a ride.

I love donkeys more than me.

By this bad pic also hard to say if the concrete block is some kind of old foundation as the excavator could also have a jackhammer at its tip.... :?r

A new update in Facebook:

"Even the strongest winds cannot tip The Pit, so it should be ready next summer! I wonder what will The Pit look like in a few weeks?"

Interesting that they capsized The Pit... But it could also be the project they're calling it. If the concrete mold in the picture is the only one that there's going to be, it really narrows down the possibilities what it will be. Given the narrow space it was clear though that this wasn't going to be a giant ride of any sort - if even a ride at all. Still crossing my fingers for a good drop tower! But Linnanmäki also has to negotiate with the city when building big/tall rides, as they can't have the city's skyline change too much. I've heard that because of this the Space Shot is disguised as a "radio tower" in official documents and that the SkyLoop was planned to three different locations before it was accepted by the city.

The foundation doesn't look that deep, so it's hard to make any guesses.

Another Facebook update by the park:
"One can hardly call it the Pit anymore. We're eagerly waiting for the publishing!"


This is starting to look a LOT like a tower ride. The park already has a Space Shot, a panoramic tower ride and two kiddie towers, so are there any other tower rides than a Star Flyer and a freefall tower? I'm still hoping for the latter, as awesome as AtmosFear at Liseberg, but only time will tell. Maybe it could have a station as awesome as in Tivoli Gardens' Star Flyer? =)

Also I've heard some rumors about the press release being on Valentine's Day.

Why would they build a wooden frame for a tower ride? I think this looks more like a tall control booth.
