Today looks like the crane workers finished installing tracks and trains. Thanks for their work.

Details found
- 10 row train(20-person per cycle)
- 1st car exposed (opened) a lot.
- Ride entry is near the entrance of Draken Valley
- Looks like NO air gate; just entry and exit on the same side.
- Great theming.

- Maybe next post will be testing, or my photo of visiting in this Chuseok holiday.

I am confused - is this thing a boomerang or a full circuit coaster?

At first I thought the track round the top was just to eliminate the risk of derailment (and to give us a laugh when viewed from above 😛), but the pics show the train going around that top corner.
Seeing the testing, this operates like
1.Backward Lifthill (Lift 1)
2. Passing station and Forward coasting
3. Lift 2 climbing and U-Turn at the top of the lift
4. Dropping again lift 1
5. Pass station and forward coasting 2
6. Climb lift 2 - stop at the top.
7. Backward drop and backward coasting
8. stop at the station

So it goes 2 forward circuit and
(stops and change direction at the lift and) 1 backward circuit.

technically it can run full circuit, or it can do shuttle run.

Today I got a message from the park about special discount ticket for Valkyrie opening.
It says
"Family Shuttle Coaster, Valkyrie / Opening in October 9th "

Pretty surprised that this coaster was constructed so fast. Announced in April, and just 6 months.

Maybe I'll come back with brief review of this ride.

It’s the first Gerstlauer project in South Korea, which stands for something
Def the first Gerst coaster in Korea. Though in the past they installed a family flat at Everland (Sky Dancing) first Gerstlauer coaster is still great. Visiting&Review planned in Oct.11th.
