So a follower of CoasterClub Denmark sent us some very interesting photos the other day, showing a big land clearing going on in the eastern part of the park. They've cut down a lot of trees and there also seems to be a good amount of activity already.

Whatever this is, it's definitely big and probably for 2022.
Let the discussion begin!

Sneaky photos:

Hmm ... thrilling family ride, or tame family ride? As I've mentioned before, basically all Danish parks are family parks, so I have little faith in anything extreme happening here. For reference, the last time a coaster with inversions was built in Denmark was 2008.

Then again, Fårup Sommerland was one of the two Danish parks to build such a coaster that year, so I wouldn't entirely rule out an appetite for something thrilling ...

So my guess is that they got a 2-for-1 deal from Vekoma with Saven being the already built coaster.
I am really starting to believe that vekoma has some kind of deal when someone is buying a big coaster from them. I mean Phantasialand has Raik and FLY, Energylandia has Formula and Abyssus and therefore two Family boomerangs. Also Tripsdrill got HüK and Volldampf and Tayto Park is going to have the same combination.
Maybe Farup will belay that theory (not inevitable at all, i know, but we'll see)

You could extend the theory to Parks and Resorts Scandinavia buying Wildfire for Kolmården (as Vekoma is RMC’s broker in Europe) one year and a family boomerang for Furuvik the next, or all the Fantawild parks opening up that seem to be getting a new-gen Vekoma looper/Family Boomerang combo.

Fårup is practically the odd one out here so there’s a decent chance another Vekoma could be coming.

As a resident in Denmark its hard not to get carried away with high expectations and buy into the 2-1 deal.
Covid, a lower equity after buying out the former owner and the «family» route speaks against a new big coaster.
But In 2018 they got permission to build up to 40 m in height which was limited before due to the close location to the coastline. This could fit with a Bermuda blitz :)
The permission for the 40 m is only allowed in the inner zone of the plan. Not sure if this matches with location of the coaster club sightingWPtUai26BQnV6clR-WiqGjvQzpA.jpgHX7gbYVy0mLRVN_pXloe6VEED7Q.jpg

There has been a couple of construction pictures posted in the dk coaster club thread. I thought it would be interesting to put them here. 180812033_10225428864846524_2751018594280101352_n.jpg181390676_10225428865126531_3442825901885217539_n.jpg
Ps: If this is in conflict with rules / moral code, let me know and i will delete it.

I could be pulling this from my arse, but I'm sure I heard a rumour that it's possibly the mystery Vekoma coaster from this thread:-

Vekoma 2022 European Coaster | FORUMS - COASTERFORCE

So my guess is that they got a 2-for-1 deal from Vekoma with Saven being the already built coaster. But either way, this should be an exciting development to follow.

I totally forgot about this! - Could it be? 😍

Also, update of the construction site from May 1st:

That's quite a bit of groundwork already (oh, and look how sandy the soil is!). This must be quite a large family attraction.
 
That's some heavy duty machinery there. I wouldn't expect any Danish park getting anything major but with such a serious construction effort Fårup might actually be getting something good.
