Okay weird. I was expecting these tanks to be those 'stationary swimming' type things where you'd then hold on to a little propeller thing (I don't know technical terms for this ****):





If it's not a setup like that, how does it work?

Some footage of the new Hyggedal relaxation + sauna area and a glimpse of a digital 3D concept model of the upcoming Svalgurok.

The model's background gives some glimpses of the masterplan for the future too - the second indoor hall mirroring the original and third screenshot posted in the far background on the left marked as a blue profile box is the next resort hotel planned to sit beside Kronasar.

Anyone else reckon it was a massive oversight for Rulantica to not put in a Hydromagnetic slide in the original park. Would be a first for Germany.

Kind of like how the DreamWorks water park in NJ has a hydromagnetic slide running around the full perimeter.

A Tornado would have been a good landmark slide too (Call it Maelstrom), I'm aware they have a Tornado wave, but again, nothing quite matches the visual impact of a Tornado.

Beyond the current phase of 2020/21 expansions Rulantica has plans for a third slide tower to be added within the next 5 years. The tower will feature 3 new attractions, 1 of which will be an 8 lane RallyRacer mat slide from manufacturer ProSlide (already responsible for most of the major slides in Rulantica and the upcoming Svalgurok expansion)
Park project manager Charles R. Botta in an interview with ParkErlebnis.de added that the tower may also house additional gastronomy, sauna and wellness offerings however final decisions on these have yet to be made.

I still find it amazing and remarkable how quickly they are expanding this place. The construction walls have barely been down long and yet phase two is now underway.

It's not yet clear when the other 2021 additions "Snorri's Strand" (outdoor kids play area), and a new gastronomy offering in the outdoor area, will open. Since it seems unlikely the park will reopen until the new year Snorri's Snorkeling VR will presumably just open whenever they reopen.
