In recent days, there has been talk in the media about Gröna Lund risking bankruptcy if we are not allowed to open next year. How could it have happened like that? It's about three things and we'll try to explain these in a concise way (although it's a rather complicated situation).
1. We were never allowed to open 2020
We were ready to open in a corona safe way, but the government chose to say no. We have therefore had no revenue at all since autumn 2019. Did you know that all other countries in Europe opened their amusement parks in the same safe way? Learn more about how we can open carefully at www.gronalund.com.
2. We have not received any targeted financial compensation
Despite being forced to stay closed, we have not received any targeted financial support from the state.
3. We have not been notified about opening 2021
We need a message from the government that we can open safely in spring 2021. Why do we need a message already now? Well, opening an amusement park is not done in a turn. It takes time to recruit staff, train employees and prepare restaurants, games and attractions.
There is hope!
We are in a very tough situation, but we only manage to open spring 2021-obviously in a safe way.
If you have questions, feel free to ask them here, so we will try to answer them as best we can.
I believe it's the highest point above ground level, as some coasters are listed as having an overall height or tallest drop height, or both in some cases.Great photo! It's an interesting project. Is RCDB saying it's 111.5ft from the tallest piece of track to the lowest? If the station's buried underground, that would add some height to the ride.
