Gröna Lund Discussion Thread

Postby Tobias94 » Wed Apr 30, 2008 11:15 pm

Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Gröna Lund, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

Original post:

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. :P

I'm going there soon, hope you will come too...

Future expansion plans for Gröna Lund

Postby Olov » Sun Dec 14, 2008 5:25 pm

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...

That actually looks pretty cool. The invert looks pretty compact so it may actually have some forces.

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

The layout for the invert is really good, but how are those glass shields going to work?

The theme is what really impresses me; I love the look of the star flyer.

The invert looks Insanely compact! But like Savethewhales said, Whats with the glass?

Also, That Starflyer looks like its at least 250FT tall! Holy Crap!

^The Star Flyer would be 328ft tall. :omg:

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.

That inverter-layout is very much like Black Mamba (only some changes towards the end)
