    Looking good! Wonder how long it'll take them to erect it?

    I wasn't sold until I say it against the white supports. They go together so well.

    We all know rcdb can't be trusted all the time but is there a reason they changed the opening year of Valkyria to 2019?

    They had quite a few issues with the tunnel for the drop apparently, which has delayed construction by a couple of months. The latest I heard was that the park are aiming to get it to open in summer.

    Aerial image from the park, which was given a caption of 'thinking about the summer'.

    Surprised at how close it goes to Balder - didn't realise it was that close!

    Double post, but the lift hill is topped off:-

    Here's a similar video found on YouTube:-

    In all honesty, it doesn't look as tall as I expected.

    ^Thing is, it's not actually that big.

    It's far more comparable to small/medium Dive Machines like Krake and Oblivion TBH than it is Griffon or Valravn. Those on the smaller side do generally look disproportionately small, as we're so used to thinking of the big Dive Machines. That's my feeling towards it anyway, as I sort of agree with you!

    It actually looks bigger than I expected, especially when you look at it dwarfing Mechanica.

    Yeah it looks :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing massive and imposing in the middle of the park (relative to the rides around it). Still can't believe they're squeezing one in (and the size of the track does add to the scale of it).
