    I strongly suspect it's a ride from Hafema, but Intamin did built one raft ride in Germany with a whirlpool.

    Re: Tusenfryd new rapids ride for 2016!

    Yay for new rapids. That concept art is also amazing. Think the layout looks a little drawn out, hopefully the plain looking areas have some decent rapids.

    Didn't Intamin also build Kali River Rapids? That(kind of) has a whirlpool.

    Still looks great.

    Looks good if not a little short, the theming and promo art looks fantastic though.

    I quite like this addition, hope they can pull the theming on the concept art off.

    Also, I like how the whirlpool is "hidden" like that, so you won't be able to tell what's what right away. I feel like a lot of those whirlpools on rapids are pretty pointless when it's just a big concrete circle in plain sight.

    This is really tarting to take shape! I really like this addition, it will be perfect for the area down by the water coaster.

    Here are the latest construction photos from the park's website. The first and last photos show where the ride is located up behind SuperSplash with the station next to Thor's Hammer's entrance.

    Absolutely loving the concept art for this - I am a bit of a fan of rapids rides when they're done right (Bluto's Bilge Rat Barges, Grizzly River Run, Kali River Rapids), basically fantastically themed rides, and this has the opportunity to fit into that.

    Kimahri and I rode Ragnarok on Monday. It's not quite finished yet, among other things the station building lacks a roof and permanent railings, but open to the public nevertheless. I enjoyed it, he disliked it, then again I have a bit of a soft spot for rapids rides. It gets you wet (mostly by flooding the boat) but it's not drenching. Although there is one spot where a bridge crosses the track, and water guns are mounted on the bridge, so you better be prepared to be soaked by other park-goers.

    The themeing was mostly unfinished too when we went, so no judgement on that front.

    Kinda weird for them to open the ride with the bare minimum done to get it open but given the adorable size of Tusenfryd I can't blame them for being pushed to open it.

    That being said it's better than any rapids ride in the uk. :emoji_zipper_mouth: thing decided to piss a whole wave over my legs, soaking my phone. I'll give it props for a water ride actually doing stuff with water unlike Alton and Thorpe's rapids giving you a slight dashing of moisture.

    Also it has 2 drops. Drops on a rapids ride are weird and terrifying.
