Yesterday, Grona Lund said they have started planning an application for a large roller coaster scheduled to be completed in spring 2020. The CEO of the company Parks and Resorts, which owns Green Grove, describes the attraction as very different. The roller coaster is designed so that it sits under the rails, hanging by the legs right down. There is a huge momentum experience where you will go up and down, get huge g-forces, rolls, every possible moment during the ride, says Christer Fogelmarck.
The attraction, which is inspired by two roller coasters in the United States , to be built at Tyrol Park, where bumper cars and pentathlon games available today. Therefore, there are also plans to transform the area.
"We want to open up the area so that you can go out to the water, where we can have cafés and venues," says Christer Fogelmarck but points out that they have not yet submitted a building permit request for the plans.
Just building permits and appeals are an ongoing concern for Grona Lund. A new, 95-meter high fall attraction, encountered on patrol in the Land and Environment Court, after neighbors complained of the building permit.
