Apparently an inverted coaster. Some of the permit drawings that are publicly available from the municipality:

If this one opens during the upcoming season, I’m actually a bit excited to see what’s in store for 2021 and their “largest investment ever”.
I’m not getting my hopes up, however. Gave up on Tusenfryd a long time ago, mostly because of their shoddy operations and the lack of proper upkeep and maintenance. Even though I live in Oslo, I consider Liseberg my “local park” ;)
This is the 2021 investment.

And I think an invert makes perfect sense for this park! Really curious to see how this shapes up!

It's a launched Vekoma Suspended Family/Thrill Coaster. (Which is also a first in Europe) Just like Djurs Sommerland got in 2017 with the attraction DrageKongen (Dragon King) and Fårup Sommerland got one in 2013 'Orkanen'. Funny thing is the old attraction this replaces was Dragen (Dragon) and the new coaster seems to be called dragen also.

I mean it's ok, but damn judging by that lame/compact layout, a lot of the money must be spent on theming or zone planning. If this is the biggest investment to date.

The B&M they are building in Gröna Lund is a much bigger project, so we can't compare.

I would be surprised if this isn't an Intamin. Trains are closer to DrageKongen than a Vekoma SFC/STC: The seats don't look like Vekoma, the road wheels are bigger than the SFCs, the lack of horizontal bracing from the SFC trains, etc.. Only counter to that thought is that the seats have a bar extending to each seat, rather than one bar for both. Maybe an improved design? Anyway, my $ is on Intamin.

I just can’t see how this can be their biggest investment to date, given the size and TF’s (or should we say Parque Reunidos’) reluctance to spend anything on proper theming. The station building and landscape shown in the permit application drawings is what will be built, meaning not much theming at all. Besides that, do they really need a whole year/season to finish this?
I’m crossing my fingers for something bigger and better for 2021 :D

The facade drawings from the permit application, by the way:

I guess you can say the wood shingle siding gives the station a sort of dragon look, as far as theming goes.
The permit application (“rammesøknad”) states that the concrete foundations for the coaster itself will be shown in a drawing for the next step, which is the application to initiate construction (“søknad om igangsettingstillatelse”).

Nordic minimalism is really pushing the envelope here.

I had to go back again as I wanted to check out the markers a little more in depth.

I have marked A and B on this layout, I don´t know what´s on their markers as they are on the other side of the fence (inside the park). I am wondering if there is a change in layout. As you can see we got marking F39 which should be just before the final inversion before entering the station. But then I found F47, I didn´t find any of the other between 39 and 47 so I´m wondering if this means they will add more elements and make this layout a little longer.

F47. So what do you guys think? Can we see an addition to the layout as there is a marker number 47? I thought it first might be wrong and that it should be 37 but I found that one.

I think this will be a great coaster, I hope it will flow with the terrain.
