It will definitely be interesting following this one. This will be a perfect case study to use for whenever someone says a park 'doesn't have room for a new coaster' for generations to come.


The thing is, this invert is being built AWAY from the main rides section (the clump of beautiful, tangled coaster mess along the boardwalk). The land has always been there but no one bothered to think Grona would use it for a new coaster.

It looks like Snake (their new Chaos Pendle flat ride) will be a brand-new installation. Check out some photos on Grona Lund's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10156875327965667&type=1&l=beeca1ae8c

What are you talking about? They announced their intentions to be a coaster there almost a decade ago. The government and locals near the park have been holding up the process for years.

I was trying to point out that Grona Lund has always had that land. It’s not like they bought a new parcel or anything— this situation is most simply put, alike to Disneyland building a coaster over the entirety of Main Street USA. From what I have seen and gathered together this invert is going right over the entry street— no, not a front gate coaster like Fury 325 or Gatekeeper— but rather right over the shops and restaurants that make up Grona Lund’s entry area.

Gröna Lund posted an impressive construction update on their facebook page.
That's a huge hole in the ground for the future station of that B&M inverted coaster

I had no clue they had already broken ground! And to already be this far is really cool!

Advice needed, I've been to the park twice but I can't remember for the life of me if any of the rides had bins to put backpacks etc. in. I'm going in a couple days and I won't lie, not super excited about the prospect of paying almost 3€ at each opening of a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo.

All rides had a place on the platform to store bags or you were able to bring them on the tamer rides
