    Rulantica's French Twitter account has shared an aerial showing the construction sites around the park and Kronasar. Plus the land available for future expansions too.

    Also interesting is the land being cleared in the bottom right - rumour has it this will be for a few years the temporary new location for the "Immer Wieder Sonntages" TV show filmed in EP behind the Greece and Russia areas. This would clear the current site which will be part of the (hopefully still for) 2023 expansion/coaster.

    There looks to be land clearing on either side of YULLBE. I know someone mentioned the extension of the changing facilities as well, but by the looks of that picture, it is a very extensive area of land clearing.

    I wonder whether there’s anything more to it. Some enabling works for the new hotel? It seems too remote from Rulantica to be a direct expansion there and too large even for Immer Wieder Sonntage on its own.

    Would that be where the new restaurant is planned to go?

    That slide on the right looks safe

    Both the left and the right do look like they chuck you out right onto the support. Odd!

    I’m guessing there might be another piece of slide to go on the end, as I’m sure it would normally kinds some kind of run off or something rather than just ending like that.

    Might just be the angle of the pic, but the bowl slide looks a bit odd. Not sure I've seen one like that before.

    From what it seems like the bowl will be partway down and then you continue down more slide whereas the more common one the bowl ends and you drop into a pool.

    Most modern bowl slides put the bowl mid-way along the slide, I don't think I've seen a modern one where you just fall into a deep pool.

    At least one of WhiteWaterWest and ProSlide produce bowl slides where the slide ends in the bowl - you come to a stop in the middle and then exit down a spiral staircase. I'm not sure if that's what's going on here though, difficult to tell from the pictures.

    So this ‘issue’ with the slides and the supports has been mentioned by Michael Mack. Oops! :)

    The EP/Rulantica app has updated to show Svalgurok and Snorri Strand. An unknown mysterious large building beside Svalgurok is also shown.

    Interesting, another food outlet perhaps? Looks too big to just end of being staff areas and/or waterpark equipment/infrastructure.

    The development is looking really good though!

    Rulantica shared some sneak peaks of the construction site on their Instagram story. Really liking the theming around the play structure and slides.

    Wow, did I just spot some fake slides themed as snakes weaving around the real slides?!

    Love that. Reminds me of the fake Nemesis track that forms part of the station.
