Hi everyone, last week Gröna Lund opened for the new season. They don't have any special new rides, but they have news. Their ''Kiddie Land'' is renovated and there are three new rides there.
The flying elephants is the first one. You know what i'm talking about, right? The next one is ''Lyktan'', which translates into ''The Lantern''. It's another miniature of ''Fritt Fall'', our big drop ride. The last new kiddie ride is The Tea Cups, an old classic, that Gröna Lund wanna build now
They also have a more thrilling ride, called Rock Jet. It's one of these ''Thunder Bobs''. It's located at a roof... It's true.
I'm going there soon, hope you will come too...

Gröna Lund are sending in the expansion plans for building permission today and if granted will be the biggest expansion in the park's long history (just celebrated 125 years).
The park has been looking at the parking lot just opposite the entrance for some time. Now they're finally sending in the plans featuring what looks to be a 35m tall B&M inverter, a 100m tall star flyer and aiming for a classic tivoli theme. The parking lot is just 8.000 square meters, Gröna Lund's size would then with 43.00sqm be about half the size of Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen but Gröna Lund are pretty good at packing in a lot of stuff in a tight space.
The price tag is about $65 millions.
If permission granted and everything going as planned it will open on 2012-2013 season.
Let's hope for the best...
Gröna Lund's expansion plans
Hopefully this does get built as it will be great for the park. However, I'm sure locals will complain about the noise, but with a 2012-2013 opening date, hopefully things will be sorted out. I assume the glass walls are to help reduce noise levels, so hopefully those help with getting permission.
It is amazing how Gröna Lund manages to fit all the rides they have into such a small area. Tivoli Gardens is also really small, and if the expansion will only make Gröna Lund half of Tivoli's size, then that shows how creative ride designers are when creating rides for the park.
