The Swedish king has personally stopped the sale of 1000 sqm of land to Gröna Lund. This plot is right next to the land that Gröna Lund already own. It is the land next to the water. The Swedish monarch has since the 1400s personally owned most of the island on which Gröna Lund is situated. It is called Kungliga Djurgården (kungliga means royal). It is also Sweden's most exclusive area with greatly powerful people living there. These people have complained about Gröna Lund's expansion plan. These complaints made the Land and Environmental Court disapprove Gröna Lund's expansion earlier this year due to it's "negative impact on the area". However the local politicians ignored the court and let Gröna Lund continue with their plans.
The king had previously said he would approve the land sale but has now personally intervened to stop it. However, he will allow Gröna Lund to rent the land. This is problematic as the rental agreement needs to be approved by the Land and Environmental Court (the same court which was against Gröna Lund a couple months ago). The court should present their judgement by the end of the spring.
I personally don't think the court will let Gröna Lund use those 1000 sqm by the water and this will send Gröna Lund back to the drawing board to design a new expansion plan using only the land they already own. Pretty sad. Honestly, I don't get why we have a king. He is utterly useless and completely out of touch. He only cares about a couple of his friends living in their huge mansions on Djurgården while ignoring the millions who would enjoy a new Gröna Lund expansion. Would be a great thing to get rid of him and let Gröna Lund expand. I WANT THAT NEW COASTER!
Edit: Am I the first one inciting revolution for a coaster? Lol, a goon is a goon.
