Valkyria replaces the Kanonen in the final year of a two year redesign of the Balder area. The first year brings the Loke, a 26.5m tall Gyro-Swing that replaces the 13m tall Spinrock. The new area will be a myths and legends theme based on Liseberg’s twist of Norse Mythology.
A “Valkyrie” was a winged creature from Norse Mythology whose task was to carry fallen warriors from Middle Earth to the afterlife.
