Grona Lund (Stockholm, Sweden) has filed for planning permission to build a Bolliger and Mabillard Inverted coaster, expected to be completed in Spring of 2020. When completed, the new coaster will become the fastest, longest, and most inverting coaster in the park.
Lets take a look at the stats:
- Height: 34 meters (111ft)
- Length: 700 meters (2,296ft)
- Speed: 100 km/h (60mph)
- Duration: 2 minutes
The compact nature of Grona Lund will result in the new coaster’s layout being very unique, compared to other Inverted coasters. No vertical loops, dive loops, or cobra rolls here; the new coaster will boast two Zero-G rolls, two corkscrews, and a Jr. Immelmann (an Immelmann maneuver that banks 90 degrees at its apex).
“We want to open up the area so that you can go out to the water, where we can have cafés and venues” says Parks and Resorts CEO Christer Fogelmarck. The coaster will be located near the Insane and Jetline coasters, and will replace the bumper cars and pentathlon games. For those unfamiliar with the location, here is an overhead image.
Construction of the new coaster will begin in Fall 2018 and will be completed in Spring 2020.
