Blackpool Pleasure Beach: Future Predictions

Valhalla is supposed to be getting a refurb over winter so I'd bet it would be for that.
It will be interesting to see what exactly is refurbished, cause the 2012 refurb was new additions, facade redo, etc. So could this new refurb be a storyline with the ride, so it means the scenes are in order and not just viking scenes, effects and drops in random. Cause the only thing with Valhalla, is it needs a story. Plus, it means the outdoor queue line can be indoors with a soundtrack and that the whole ride (including first turn and final turn in and out of the station) can be indoors
 
It already is a story though, each scene shows a stage of the Vikings journey to Valhalla, with the big fireball finale your entrance to the great hall!
Yh that is true. I just mean like an original story involving characters and keeping the whole journey to valhalla feel with it

Valhalla used to have a coherent storyline and achieved this through the order of scenes and the voiceover on lift 1, however it was always partially left to the imagination of the rider (rather than fully narrated/explained) which I liked.

The ride has lost its way through broken features, effects and audio as well as random reshuffling of scenes which means it no longer makes sense and has been taken further away from the coherent themed experience it was first designed as.

It doesn't need an indoor queue or a fully-told storyline IMO, it just needs restorjng back to the standard it used to be by someone/a company who understands the ride and what it should achieve as a themed experience.

I'm not expecting much to change with Valhalla aside from a few effect sensors being fixed (and possible changes/fixes to the ride hardware itself) but I'm happy to be surprised!
