Gyeongju World in South Korea have announced a new shuttle coaster for October 2021 called Valkyrie! No mention of manufacturer or model yet, but it looks like a Gerstlauer family boomerang model.

Native South Korean here:
"최강" mentioned in the construction walls means "ultimate" or "powerful" in Korean, so I do not expect a family boomerang here.
It must be a large thrill shuttle coaster, and its actually quite surprising that the park is already getting a new coaster 3 years after their Griffon dive machine.
Maybeee a Premier/Gerstlauer launch since Intamin shuttle launch machines are quite expensive and they probably do not have a budget for a coaster that large.

As a local, I got an opportunity to visit here. Now footers and station building is under construction. While riding Draken I saw footers and bases progressed a lot.


grateful to see next coaster @ my home park in just 3 years. Scheduled to open in October.

This is Gerstlauer. Very similar lift hill profiling to Rewind Racers and the new Boomerang at Luna Park Sydney. First time Gerst is workin in the Koreas now, actually.

Yeah that's defo a Gerstlauer like the teaser posters suggested. Should be a great addition to the park as these rides look like great family coasters (one of Gersts biggest strong points).

I don’t think I’ve ever seen trains put on the track before trackwork is complete. Is this normal for Gersts?

Ok nobody has mentioned it so I assume the answer is obvious but... If it's a boomerang, why the corner at the top making it a full circuit?
