    I'm actually going to say it. Judging from the POV, this will do for dive coasters what Helix did for launched coasters.
    All hail the mighty Swedes.

    This looks like one of the best Dive Coasters out there! Looking forward to seeing this go up!

    Can this now go into the "Roller coaster construction" thread? ;)

    Yeah, construction won't start for a while, so for now, it'll stay in the News section.

    Well to be fair, there are plenty of topics in the construction forum that existed before constriction began...the Icon topic was moved when the project was first announced (I think).

    The view of Gothenburg from the top will be delightful. This ride is going to change the whole feel of the park too as currently there isn't anything particularly tall that isn't on the hillside.

    And good riddance to the Fairy Tale Castle. Honestly the worst dark ride I've ever ridden.

    This looks a lot better than I expected! I really like how there's no MCBR but still a decent amount of elements thrown in to keep it going. I even like that funky over bank turn after the immelmann.

    It's really good. Oblivion The Black Hole is great and Valkyria is like a big brother, it'll be really fun.

    It looks amazing, of course, theming and the grand structure, but from a ride perspective I don't really get excited by Dive Machines anymore. They are a decent, fun ride but lets not kid ourselves that this will be world class.

    New 360 POV shows that the ride will have vest restrains like Valravn and be 6 seats across.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing the progress on this thing. Man, the next 3-4 years are going to be pretty good for Europe. A new wave of big coasters for us to enjoy!

    It looks like the paint could be metallic! Fingers crossed!

    I really didn't like the use of B&M vest restraints on Valravn. I mean, I don't really like them full stop (apart from on Swarm where they seem be fine for some reason), but I found them particularly detracting on a Dive Machine. I love how with old restraints you get blissful floater all the way down the drop, but on Valravn I didn't get any and it just felt comparatively mediocre. Not to mention how tight these generally get while going round the coaster. It's a real shame if Valkyria has them imo.

    I heard the vests on Valravn didn't lock and they don't ruin the ride as much as people say they do. I wasn't really expecting normal OTSR's on this with the heartline roll at the end.
