    Furuviksparken 2023

    Something is apparently brewing in the northern part of Sweden. Given the early announcement, I think we're looking at a pretty big investment here and it might very well be a coaster, especially since Rocket closed last year.

    Andreas Andersen Leaves Liseberg For Tivoli Gardens (PLOT TWIST)

    This came as quite a shock to me, but apparently Liseberg's CEO is packing up his things and moving back to Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen for a leading position, responsible for guest experiences and daily operations. I'm very ambivalent about this. On the one hand, this might mean that Andreas...

    Fårup Sommerland Announces Two New Family Rides For 2019

    Fårup announced today that they would add two new family rides, although one of them is actually a retheming of their existing wave swinger. The actual new ride is a SideCar flat-ride from Technical Park, which are quite fun. I think this is fine, although I must say that Fårup has had quite...

    The park has started teasing their new attraction for 2019. It will be the tallest ride in the park at 45 meters and they will reveal it on tuesday at 10AM. I'm thinking somewhere along the lines of a drop tower or a big flat of some kind, but really I'm rather lost as to what it's going to be...

    Tivoli Friheden in Denmark is apparently getting a new roller coaster this year called "Bisværmen" (Bee-Swarm). It's one of those small figure-8 spinners from SBF so nothing special at all, although it's been quite a long time since the park last got something of this "caliber" I guess. They...

    Heide Park Removes Water Ride - What's Next?

    Heide Park has begun what looks like the demolition of their "Märchenfahrt" water ride and that is pretty much all we know at the moment. It could also just be a renovation though, but I think it's more likely that it's being torn down to make space for a new ride. The sign they've put up also...

    New Area For Legoland Billund 2016

    So Legoland Billund is developing what seems to be a pretty big plot of land as you'll see on the pictures below, which leads me to think it's a whole new area instead of just another Ninjago themed Sky Fly from Gerst. The park removed their kiddie coaster a couple of years ago to build Ghost...
