Why is the layout so short and bad ? If they really build it like that, it would be a waste of land AND MONEY. It sure does look like your standard Launch coaster 540 Gerstlauer coaster.

At least it's an upgrade from the very old kid coaster Dragen hah !

I don't know if I'm seeing the same thing as you but Lynet looks absolutely nothing like what this will be, in any way whatsoever besides the fact it has LSMs.

TusenFryd added this picture to their FB page in March with the text "What´s going on here?"

I think this is in reference to the 2020 attraction. You can see the picture under. Which I do believe is from inside Forbannelsen which was a very popular and well themed haunted house during their last two halloween seasons. Halloween has been very popular at TusenFryd and I do belive that 2020 will be a permanent haunted house. Forbannelsen was great last season, and if this mean they will build a permanent house, this might get an even better theme.

Picture from some years ago from before they added wall to the building.

The site for the coaster is a lot bigger in person. I know the drawings can make it look like a small coaster, but this will be a big boy.

I wish they would leave more tree cover around the ride :( It should still be a nice location. Really hoping that this ends up being Intamin or Vekoma.

There is still a lot of trees around it, hopefully will make for a good foot choppers.

They are actually expanding the park for this, so I can´t see why that would be a waste of land, also keep in mind that Tusenfryd have an additional of 50% land that they can expand if they want to in the future.

Because bigger coasters are more expensive, and the chain that owns TusenFryd really dislikes anything expensive. There's a reason why TusenFryd hasn't got a proper coaster since 2006, or why they had to run a stunt show on a parking lot as a headliner attraction the past four years in a row. The money the park makes is mostly sent away to enrich shareholders, while very little is allowed to be kept for maintenance and new investments.

Minor bump.

A source at TusenFryd told me the coaster has been pushed back to 2022. Pictures he showed me showed no visible change from what @per2012 posted above. I've updated the thread title accordingly.

Given the Covid situation, I guess it's understandable. Still, it means another year of wear and tear without renewal at the park. There's still a lot of stuff from the opening year of 1988 left in the park, and it's not getting any younger.

In minor news, one of the slides at the park's small waterpark area has been demolished. Apparently it was due to failing safety inspections. I guess there could be a replacement in the works, but with this park it's hard to tell.

That awkward moment where my planning of when to travel internationally vs. having a kid can be impacted by one roller coaster. ? Was hoping to make a swing out to Tusenfryd next year to as part of a broader Scandinavian trip; that is assuming I can even make a trip to Europe next year.

I was just about to jump in to defend Gerstlauer (who've made a lot of decent coasters, just not in the UK) but then saw it was another of those bloody backwards & forwards things that are in vogue lately. I then similarly lost interest.

On a vaguely off-topic note, Forbannelsen is indeed awesome, even if I had absolutely no idea what was going on.
