Ride of the Valkyries


Europa, with a drop of 50m. Manufactured by Boliger & Mabillard, Valkyria has replaced the Kanonen coaster, and seats 18 riders in three rows. With their legs dangling free, and after a 45 degree climb, riders find themselves 47m in the air. Just as the train is about to take its plunge, it pauses, and passengers are suspended in the air for a handful of seconds before rushing downwards at 105 km/h – a vertical dive 50m into an underground tunnel.


L


iseburg celebrated the opening of its new coaster Valkyria on August 10, with guests gathering to watch the ribbon cutting ceremony before enjoying their first ride. Valkyria now holds the title of the highest and longest dive coaster in


Valkyria is Liseberg’s most well-received and expensive completed project to date,


with a price tag of more than 300m, and is classed as a family thrill ride – though enthusiasts are certain to enjoy Valkyria’s dive and three inversions. “Last year we opened the Intamin Gyro Swing Loke – representing the giant that


caused the death of the Warrior God Balder. And this year we opened Valkyria,” said Liseburg CEO, Andreas Andersen, who explained to Park World that Valkyria is part of a larger re-theming project centred around the park’s Balder wooden coaster. Called Myths and Legends, the new area draws on elements of classic Norse mythology – all incorporated into its new cohesive theming. “Valkyria works perfectly with our coaster portfolio in general: With Balder being a


world class wooden coaster, HELIX being a superb double-launch multi-looping coaster, Schwartzkopf’s Lisebergbanan being one of the world’s best family/mine train rides, Valkyria complements this line-up perfectly.”


Hersheypark’s new dark ride comes to light


The worlds of chocolate (and peanut butter) and roller coasters are coming together in Hersheypark, Pennsylvania, as the park plans to introduce Reese’s Cupfusion in summer 2019. Manufactured by Sally Corporation, with the design elements being handled by Raven Sun Creative, Reese’s Cupfusion will feature multi-level game player technology. “We are thrilled to announce the one-of-a-kind gaming attraction that is


Reese’s Cupfusion,” said Kevin Stumpf, VP of sports & attractions at Hershey Entertainment & Resorts. “We pride ourselves on creating unique and memorable family experiences that can only be enjoyed at Hersheypark and this new attraction will do just that.” Riders will be treated to a sensory experience during the ride, and get to play an interactive family game throughout the attraction with multiple ways to earn points. Riders become Agent Trainees at Reese’s Central, a futuristic factory that runs on Reese’s Spirit. At the heart of Reese’s Central is the legendary Crystal Cup, which collects and amplifies the love of chocolate and peanut butter to create Cupfusion Energy that powers the factory. As a Reese’s Agent Trainee, it’s the guests’ mission to protect the Crystal Cup and ensure that the factory keeps running under the guidance of Commander Cup, a new character to be introduced in 2019. Other new characters like Mint the Merciless and The League of Misfit Candy are always around the corner trying to steal the Crystal Cup for their own “evil” purposes. Guests can unlock additional features and try to beat their score with every ride to become a Reese’s Legend in the Hall of Fame.
